Once in a lifetime God sends somebody special to lead us out of darkness into the realms of love and peace. Thank you God, for giving us Mandela, who also taught how to love and forgive.

Madiba, you taught the world to forgive, reconcile, but most of all to love the humanity in all! May the world honour you in upholding your principles, and move towards the vision you have shown us.

We salute the ELDERS for now deciding to intervene collectively to resolve the Palestine-Israel conflict, which is the central geo-political crisis of our times.

Let us hope that this spirit will become the order of the day. As Arnold Toynbee20 says: "Love is the ultimate force that makes for the saving choice of life and good against the damning choice of death and evil. Therefore the first hope in our inventory must be the hope that love is going to have the last word." We can no longer afford to worship the God of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate. Love is the key to the solution of the problems of the world.

It is insufficient simply to support 'peace'. We need to set out the choice: either two states (partition) or a single democratic state. There is no third way.

The U.S. should not wait two years. It should recognize Palestine de facto NOW.

Let's learn to listen to each other with our hearts. Free yourself from hatred. We are no different than you. Be respectful and coexist peacefully. Thank you, The Elders. God Bless.

His action went beyond the struggle for a free South Africa. It illustrated the struggle to liberate human beings from the shackles both of racism and of revenge.

Pursuing peace with all men as admonished by the Holy Bible is a creed that all men should live by. People from all over the world are one regardless of race, education and economic independence.

Until we deliver our experience on the success and failures to new generation correctly, we are not able to find correct path to democracy and justice.Youths have commitment and we have dreams.

Mandela shall remain in the memory of humanity as an inspiration. His legacy will be to a mankind which will never forget his contribution to all society, in matters of respect and human rights.

South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.
Nanima

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

The only way we can ever reach some sort of peace is when each of us look at the person or persons in our own life that we dislike for whatever reason, and treat them with respect.

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.

I believe that people around the world need to know more about how family's, especially children, suffer due to the lack of Peace around the world. Ignorance truly denies others of bliss.

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
