There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.
Lutherans in the Holy Land and in the US are working tirelessly for peace for Israelis and Palestinians. This is a calling for all Christians to work energetically for peace and reconciliation.
Gratitude to the Elders and to all who are working for peace and justice. Thank you.

In our time, peace should not be a radical concept. Leading hearts and minds to believe that peace is the most natural choice will bring about lasting change.

Sharing will bring Justice. Justice will bring peace. Sharing will save Israel and Palestine.
Sharing will save the World.

Only when a people feel safe, empowered, respected and sustainable will peace among those peoples become real.
Life is precious everywhere. My prayers are with the elders and the good work they are doing.
Thank you to everyone who is working and praying for peace and justice, and especially to the Elders.
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.
Blessings and Aloha, thank you Elders for making a journey for World Peace. My prayer is for the children and the Earth to be cared for - everywhere. When we put our hearts in charge it will happen.
May the divine powers of mercy,forgiveness,love and compassion bring peace to the Middle East
Peace will only come with the return the Prince of Peace.: Yeshua the Messiah / Jesus the Christ. So lift up the Son of Man because all other plans will fail. That's God's plan for peace.

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!
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.
Peace constitutes an inescapable imperative the world over and the Middle East is no exception. We need a world where people compete not in killing each other but in loving each other and in sharing.

I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"
Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.
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.
The land has been bequeathed to all of Abraham's children - both from Isaac and Ishmael. It is my prayer that the family reunite as did the brothers when they buried their father.

It is a beautiful and powerful stand for peace and prosperity, there is hope knowing that men and women such as the elders with years of experience and wisdom under their belt creating a movement.
Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.
Fernando H Cardoso
You elders are showing us how to build a better world community. Please keep working as a force for compassionate listening and taking a stand for what's right. Thank you.
Tucson, AZ USA
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.
Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.
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.
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.
Thank you for being here for all of us.
May succsess be on your way.
May people go on your path.
All the best
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!
