The conflict in the Middle East has been going on for far to long; and far too many lives ruined or lost; For God's sake it must stop now.

I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"
Thanks for being open and sharing what you are doing. It means a lot to global citizens to see leaders taking a public stand and involving us in their work.
I don't know what to say; for I don't understand. Is it for me to understand? What I know is; there is one God. Strive for peace. Hatred, bigotry, killing, and murder are not the things of God.

The greatest teachers in history who have created positive social change have all had one thing in common: the Golden Rule. Give peace a chance. Thank you for your work!
Peace takes so much more courage than war. Understanding takes so much more work than intolerance. Getting started is harder than doing something. Be brave enough to be different.
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.
In South Africa we learnt that when you cast aside fear, forgive and move forward with courage: anything is possible!
We are all on the same planet, same species, all the divisions are man made. The invisible 'lines in the sand' are illusions. Live in the now not in the past. Peace, love, forgiveness.
Hungry, wounded and dispossessed children will not grow with peaceful ideas on their minds. PEACE needs to be understood by children as a source of security, love and nutrition.
Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.
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.

i have walked kids along the hills of south Hebron harrassed and threatened by settlers for walking the hills of Hebron
Life is precious everywhere. My prayers are with the elders and the good work they are doing.
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.
It is time to move forward. Israel must recognise the State of Palestine on the 1967 border, Jerusalem internationalized. Palestine will recognize Israel.

each journey begins with one foot in front of the other,extend your hand in peace and someone will always shake it
May the Great Spirit bless and protect you. Through the divine power of mercy,forgiveness, love and compassion may the Middle East resolve its conflicts.
The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know peace.
South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.
Peace is like love: it can't be taken, it has to be given - and I am the one who has to make the first step.
May your visit give people in the Holy Land the courage to give peace to one another.

Freedom for everyone...this is the true sense of the life......
Brothers who do not remember their common origin shall one day maybe tomorrow find the path to their common heritage and be reunited through a new brotherhood.
Thank you so much for the work you are doing. I almost didn't send a message but if ordinary people show their support rather than just think it your work might be strengthened.
A true and just peace can only benefit all. Each of us were made in the image of God, each one deserving to a life free from fear, humiliation, pain and suffering.
Peace comes out from the barrel of a gun & armed-resistances is contra to each other, might is right is not right, evil to face by evil is evil too, bunch of lies for war or terrorism are not Peace!

Sadly, the meetings in Europe this week aren't leading to a breakthrough to halt Israeli settlements in Palestine and make way for the peace process to recommence. http://bit.ly/o9Cre

Peace a path, violence, a direction, peace is illusional, it's preferred over violence, which is delusional; peacing pays only much less than warring- no profit, pleasure in destruction or murder :)

I hope all the world would be in Peace. Without War, Birds Would Be Singing. The peace from two sides not from one side so we should come together in one point.
Ahed Abu Sharekh
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.
