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.

Dear Collegues, I am personally advising the United Nations Security Council to bear with the works which the Elders are doing just for peaceful solution & negotiations with the Palestinians & others

There can only be peace when the governments of the world stop the war machine and stop making weapons of death. When the power of love overthrows those who love power, only then will there be peace X

Peace comes when the separate communities work together for the common good. In the case of Israel/palestine, the focus should be on water. http://bit.ly/95zTCa

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.

At this time of the year, it is particularily poignant that there is such pain and division in the place where Jesus was born. I hold all of the Palestinian and Israeli people in my prayers.

The World has lost a shining star, one whose love, compassion & dedication to an ideal, whose existence has illuminated the possibilities inherent in all of ours. He was Madiba us all. Adieu Mandela!

Mandela has always been a source of inspiration and hope for me. I cried when I heard the news of his passing, but now he can finally rest. We love you Madiba... all your Rainbow people love you. xxoo

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.

There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.
Gro Brundtland

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.

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.

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.

Madiba é fonte eterna de inspiração. Nunca sucumbiu diante dos piores inimigos, e nunca se deixou dominar pelo ódio. Seu legado é o provar o poder do amor. Descanse em paz, Grande Espírito da África!

Please continue and increase your work for the recognition in the United Nations Assembly of Palestine as a non-member state - on the way to full state membership through the Security Council!

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.

Perhaps you would consider highlighting the work of the voluntary Transition Town movement, born here in Kinsale 2005, and now active in communities all over the world ?

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.

all the people must work in this way because all are brothers and sisters living together in the same planet, thanks dear Elders for your help in this way
