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

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.
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
Sharing will bring justice. Justice will bring peace.
Sharing will save Israel and Palestine.
Sharing will save the world.
SEE GOD in all whom you meet, Show Love and Peace to those you Greet, and Allow Goodness to be the Mission of your Feet, for the Journey of Life is Oh So Sweet.

An open apology to the Palestinians and acknowledgment of the mistakes the western world has made in the past, will show respect to all those who suffer, and this will give them hope and strength.
We are all on the same planet, same species all the divisions are man made. There are no invisible lines in the sand. Live now, not in the past, foundations for a future of harmony, peace, love.
Blessings and Aloha, thank you Elders for making a journey for World Peace. My prayer is for the children and the Earth to be cared for - everywhere. When we put our hearts in charge it will happen.
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.

We are one humanity upon this planet and sharing in unconditional love and peace unites us all.
Harold W Becker
Tolerance, Respect for Human Rights and Peace, can't no be achieve separately. Our world without those 3 elements is just unsustainable.
PEACE in the world starts in my heart. I promise to have happier thoughts and to love myself more each day. Thus, I change the outside by changing inside.
I am writing from Jerusalem, en route to Gaza. Our project Gaza 24/24 speaks directly to your concerns. It is my hope to collaborate.
Let us hope that you can inspire the people of Palestine and the people of Israel to rise up and demand peace despite all the obstacles and rhetoric that the politicians rely on to get elected
It is the individual person who is alive--you. Create government to run for ALL the people to smooth the way. Educate children at an early age not just civics but what gov. is by using a dictionary.
Peace is like love: it can't be taken, it has to be given - and I am the one who has to make the first step.
May your visit give people in the Holy Land the courage to give peace to one another.

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.

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.

The U.S. should not wait two years. It should recognize Palestine de facto NOW.
Blacksburg VA USA
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.
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.
Kristi York Wooten
I wish Israeli and Palestinian leaders opened up their hearts for love and peace in this land which -although it seems completely impossible- should and could be the actual source of peace.
I sincerely hope and wish that, under the kind and wise guidance of the Elders, common Israelis and Palestinians will make friends and say no to hate-instigators and extremists on both sides!
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.
Themba P V Mndaweni
I have been in the last 4 years lecturing for Palestinians about the Jewish Holocaust in europe.
i would like to introduce this Jobb to the elders showing its powe to bring peace

I did not know Elders exist. Now I feel there is hope for so many people like Hanar Shaat who think one better world is possible.
Thks Elders. All together WE CAN.
Albert Schweitzer reminded us that we have become the brothers and sisters of all who suffer. Imagine the power behind our collective voices and action!
Thank you for being here for all of us.
May succsess be on your way.
May people go on your path.
All the best
What unites us in being human is much greater than that which divides us. Let unity triumph in peace.
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.
