Message of support

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 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.

The Elders is a small step for humanity to follow, and to understand that by peace only we can all live together happily ever after.

Militarizing development, research and science and maintaining an arms economy for geopolitical, corporate and private gain has clearly become an unsustainable concept.

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.

Education The future - they are our children - Have you noticed how smart they are? - they never hold grudges - It's time we grow up - by re-writing the History books - to obtain peace.

Peace pacts have never worked throughout history. The formation of a society of peoples (such as the EU) of disparate cultures that had been enemies for centuries (such as the EU) can bring peace.

Genuine peace should be the primary goal of all nations. Regarding Israel and the Palestinians, the goal should be the same as long as both have security and complete sovereignty.

Our species as a whole seems to be lacking a common purpose for focus. I sincerely hope we can get past that 0.1% difference between us all to realize how important that 99.9% commonality to be.

Peace depends not on what we are taught from the outside, but from what we know on the inside. Everyone is born with an innate sense to be at peace. We can return to that.

Cow-Boy says Peace comes out from the Barrel of a Gun, wrong, wrong & wrong while Peace is happiness and progress between Life and Death as Nature/God/Allah has Gifted, Peace is by Truth & Respect!

We obtained peace in Northern Ireland through dialogue. I pray that one day a lasting and sustainable solution can be obtained in the Middle East through similar, peaceful dialogue.
Peggy Sheridan

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.

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 know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.

The best way to end war is to make it a less profitable business. This is (besides getting rid of religion) the most crucial point - where our beloved governments constantly and willingly fail.
