Message of support

There can be no greater purpose in life than to encourage and promote peace among warring factions. I've helped with elections in the ME and know the suffering among all peoples there. Bless you.

If the U.S.A. would begin a policy of Loving and Giving vs. Fighting and Taking, we will see Peace Globally to include the Middle East.

Since the majority wants peace (95%?), there is opportunity to explore potential for cultural unity: http://abc4all.net/culturalunitypotential.htm

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.

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.

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.

Thank you for the brilliant webcast highlighting the challenges and opportunities for peace. It is essential that we keep the bright light of truth focused on reaching a true solution. Well done!

In South Africa we learnt that when you cast aside fear, forgive and move forward with courage: anything is possible!

The Elders’ visit casts a powerful moral clarity. Clearly, our destiny—Palestinians and Israelis—is to live together, as equals. Please call for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions now.

Releasing and letting go of the past is the first step towards forgiveness, understanding and the realization of Peace. The future is about all of us becoming ONE humanity ONE heart.

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.

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.

There cannot be peace without dignity. I live in the US, which holds the key to peace, and yet does all to maintain an unlawful occupation. Let's hope our new administration will help turning the tide

The Two States solution is Not a solution for the conflict in the Middle East. The real solution is necessarily more creative, and absolutely larger in scope and depth. Please cf lexeevictor.hpage.com

Peace and Goodwill are always within reach but genuine reconciliation requires some letting go on both sides. I pray this opening of hearts will happen this year.

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.

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.

I cannot express it any better than Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh: "Peace is not simply the absence of violence; it is the cultivation of understanding, insight and compassion combined with action."

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.

Peace will only come about if ordinary Israelis and Palestinians do something they might not typically do: reach out to the other, the stranger, interact and find common ground.
