War has killed millions of beautiful human beings - Yet if a Microbe was found on another planet it would be cherished as a miracle - Peace, respect and tolerance is the only way forward.

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.

Tolerance, Respect for Human Rights and Peace, can't no be achieve separately. Our world without those 3 elements is just unsustainable.

Peace is personal, first of all. When we have peace in our hearts and within our families we can do more to create a peaceful world.

You taught us humility, patience and love. Gave us strength to aspire to get education even if we fail along the way but most of all you sacrificed your life for us. RIP TATA

Wonderful to see our wise Elders meet and act with communities in Palestine and Israel. I cannot think of another current example of the human rights abuses occuring in Palestine.

I have researched concentration camp systems (from 1933) using own funds. Millions being spent on Holocaust studies each year need to also consider contemporary situation in Palestine, and humanity.

I see a future... It is when all nations are one with the earth and all humans have realised we share a common heritage for this planet we live in.

I sincerely hope and wish that, under the kind and wise guidance of the Elders, common Israelis and Palestinians will make friends and say no to hate-instigators and extremists on both sides!

There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.

Madiba - a walking example of "Be The Change You Wish to See in The World" showing the way out of hatred and vengeance to forgiveness, compassion - a legend and inspiration, empowering so many.

The Elders is the most important group I believe has ever been formed. It is a reminder that the world must listen to wisdom if humanity is to heal its wounds and embrace a positive future.

All my hopes are with the young people of Gaza. That they will find the courage and inspiration to keep believing in their future as the world doesn't make it easy for them.
Wendy Oorthuis

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.

Mandela's ideal and that he was famously prepared to die for it should forever remain an inspiration to us to continue the fight against inequality and domination of any group of people over another.

Overwhelmingly, the people of the Middle East want lives of peace and justice. The framework for resolution of differences is increasingly clear, and it is to be hoped that political leaders will take full advantage of this opportunity.
Jimmy Carter

We will look back and say, "Remember when the middle east was fraught with violence and peace seemed impossible? Hard to imagine that now…"
