Why is not there a scientist among The Elders? Someone like Stephen Hawking or Jaque Fresco. Scientists are idealists who could provide important opinions on global issues

He was SA's and perhaps even the world greatest leader. A beacon of hope and a symbol of unity- he achieved all this through practicing simple humane principles. I am so sad I will never meet him!

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Every Palestinian has the right to help himself in the absence of help from anywhere else. Free palestine

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

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.

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.

He forgave his opponents, which was remarkable. But even more striking is that he did not impose shame upon them. Instead he invited them to feel pride in the new world he created. He will be missed!

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.

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.

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.

I appeal to all South Africans to uphold the legacy of our dear Madiba, of forgiveness, tolerance and humanity. We appear to have lost our moral compass!

The conflict in the Middle East has been going on for far to long; and far too many lives ruined or lost; For God's sake it must stop now.

Madiba - a walking example of "Be The Change You Wish to See in The World" showing the way out of hatred and vengeance to forgiveness, compassion - a legend and inspiration, empowering so many.

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

The most impressive man of my generation has passed away. He taught us what responsible leadership means. We owe it to him that we will try to follow his example.

THE LIFE OF MADIBA IS A LESSON FOR US THAT ARE EXPECTING TO TAKE OVER THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR VARIOUS NATIONS ALWAYS TO FORGIVE AND LOVE EVEN YOUR WORST POLITICAL RI VAL

Violence and rhetoric is blindly directed to an opposing zone. Retaliation seems to reap more intense and cheaper cognitive rewards than investing effort in addressing the systemic sources of conflict.

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.

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.
