Message of support

even the term 'assail' can have a positive connotation-'to make a resolute start on (a task)'. let's hope the oppressive regimes will begin to assail their people with resolute good-heartedness!

I am so glad that I am able to teach my 4 year old daughter the lessons Madiba taught us. What a wonderful way of learning what it means to forgive, to accept and love each other.

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

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 world must look to the youth of, not just Gaza, but everywhere to make a difference. We owe youth so much more than terrorism. They are our future.

We hope and pray that Israel and Palestine while utilizing diplomatic channels would come to a permanent solution. That day the world would become secure and serene.

Thank you Madiba. I know you are singing and dancing with the crowds welcoming you through that 'door'. You have left the most beautiful fragrance. We breathe and it opens our hearts. True Ubuntu.

I would like to commend Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for stating his viewpoint which in fact is a viewpoint that has been long ignored by the international community.

I remember as a teenager (living in Derry, N.Ireland at the height of the troubles) an adult saying "I doubt I'll see peace here in my lifetime". They did! Have faith in the desire for peace.

I'm tired of conferences, questions and wealthy people traveling the world to discuss what we can do. When will someone step out from the masses and create something novel that we can act on instead of discussing?

Pursing 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.

Both sides, Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live in peace and recognize each other existence. Israelis to give back the 1967 occupied lands and Palestinians to acknowledge the state of Israel.

Peace requires courage, strength and wisdom. It's a continuous struggle for human rights and freedoms. Peace is also an internal struggle of every person on Earth to overcome selfishness and fear.

Forgiveness and Love are difficult when differences are long standing. We offer our support to anyone who can overcome their personal hurts and care for other human beings as themselves.

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.

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.

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.

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.
