If you were the parent of all mankind, how would you teach your children respect and loyalty?
Like the wonderful movie "The Lemon Tree", we all want to live peacefully. Its just a matter of walking in your neighbor's shoes...and letting your neighbor walk in yours.

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.
We are one humanity upon this planet and sharing in unconditional love and peace unites us all.

Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.

To the Elders thank you. It has been long since we have awaited you. Soon your presence will insight a movement towards an official moral governing body to defend our right to peaceful coexistence.

We will look back and say, "Remember when the middle east was fraught with violence and peace seemed impossible? Hard to imagine that now…"

Thank you Hanar Shaat for the wonderful article you published here on October 18, 2010. You have the vision.
If the majority of people want peace, then it follows that, just as is being done by A Better Community For All, there is potential to explore cultural unity no matter what the conflict.

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.

Elders I belong to FATA Pakistan where terrorist activities are on high point and we are on direct target of terrorist. I want peace and peace comes when the US Dollars stop to our region.
Thank you all so very much. With your wisdom, experience and guidance, may the peace process move forward.

Lutherans in the Holy Land and in the US are working tirelessly for peace for Israelis and Palestinians. This is a calling for all Christians to work energetically for peace and reconciliation.
'Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless', said Mother Teresa. May your and my words be like that, so peace, love and respect will be embraced by all hearts!

we are all attached atomically to the universe-
we are bonded biologically to all life-
we are connected chemically to this planet-
we should be astounded,awed, humbled and understand we are tenants
Peace comes out from the barrel of a gun & armed-resistances is contra to each other, might is right is not right, evil to face by evil is evil too, bunch of lies for war or terrorism are not Peace!
Veteran Dr. A. Momin
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.
If a friend can become an enemy. Then an enemy can become a friend.

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.
Roxana Badillo, Esq.
Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.
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.

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.

All my hopes are with the young people of Gaza. That they will continue believing in their future as the world doesn't make it easy on them.
I am praying for peace for ALL Palestinians and Israelis. It has been too long coming. All children, everywhere, deserve a peaceful future.

I have been in the last 4 years lecturing for Palestinians about the Jewish Holocaust in europe.

Real peace comes from living harmoniously with one another. The 'reality on the ground' won't go away so isn't it time to work towards a single state solution?
