Last time you came and preached to the choir. We in the peace camp love you all, but you must engage with the opponents of peace on both sides, settlers and jihadists.
Reaching across human-made borders to our brothers & sisters in Peace. We are One.
Seems obvious that Israel has given much and gained little. Has Hamas renounced its desire to destroy Israel? The international community needs to hold both sides accountable, not just Israel.
I hosted the Elders dialogue today at Government house in Jerusalem.
The path to peace is there to grasp through women and children of the coming generations.
The choice is yours!
Peace is truly a working effort, while war and hatred seem to come easily. Our job is to show our children that peace is worth our greatest effort.
Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.
I did not know Elders exist. Now I feel there is hope for so many people like Hanar Shaat who think one better world is possible.
Thks Elders. All together WE CAN.
Not what I'd like to say: Israel’s National Security Uzi Arad doesn't believe in non-military options w Iran. http://bit.ly/47vVMl

Those who stand in the way of peace and empowerment of the residents of Gaza and East Jerusalem deserve to be exposed and embarrassed. We must stop sowing the seeds of future conflict now.
Elders I belong to FATA Pakistan where terrorist activities are on high point and we are on direct target of terrorist. I want peace and peace comes when the US Dollars stop to our region.

'Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.'
'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'.
We learn this simple wisdom as children, yet somehow as we 'grow' we leave it behind. Peace!
An enemy is actually a friend waiting to be made. We found this to be so in South Africa. It will be no different in the Holy land.
To solve all global crisis, it isn't only for Israel but all UN member states must respect and live up the principles of each and every meaning stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Every Palestinian has the right to help himself in the absence of help from anywhere else. Free palestine
Please consider the world our grandchildren will share, and put aside today's political and economic pressures. Our grandchildren must live in the world we leave them. Our problems are irrelevant.
Our Elders you are real heroes of this world, Middle eastern people were living together in peace many centuries, and it is possible again keep going and we will support you!
Peace is possible, however can only be possible and attainable when those who wants peace make a true commitment that love will prevail, and respect for the rights of others is considered paramount.
PEACE in the world starts in my heart. I promise to have happier thoughts and to love myself more each day. Thus, I change the outside by changing inside.
If the majority of people want peace, then it follows that, just as is being done by A Better Community For All, there is potential to explore cultural unity no matter what the conflict.

I know peace will come - and it will be brought about by mums and dads who are brave enough to create a new future for their children by letting go of the past. I applaud you and send my love.
Tolerance and respect are human virtues and peace is a human right. Thanks to the Elders and to my elders for their support and their values. Let us pass it to the younger generations.
Peace can be achieved, but only through dialogue. When we talk to each other face-to-face we realise how much we have in common. Let us talk and we will find that elusive peace.

Peace comes when the separate communities work together for the common good. In the case of Israel/palestine, the focus should be on water. http://bit.ly/95zTCa
This situation concerns me deeply, and I have contacted President Obama with a link to your statement, urging him to act on it. I pray that this situation can be resolved peacefully.
You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.
Stands for PEACE
Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.
In the midst of so much confusion and pain, we must learn to love each other and only then will our pain cease to be of any importance.
We've so much work to do; the time is now! Thank you Elders!
