Message of support

Let's learn to listen to each other with our hearts. Free yourself from hatred. We are no different than you. Be respectful and coexist peacefully. Thank you, The Elders. God Bless.

Only when we achieve being aware of God even in our rivals, we can be aware of God at all. No one should talk about religious reasons while fighting against other beings! I pray for us all for awaking

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.

The Elders’ visit casts a powerful moral clarity. Clearly, our destiny—Palestinians and Israelis—is to live together, as equals. Please call for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions now.

I met with a number of Israeli and Palestinian peace groups back in 2005 and since then I have shared their work with thousands of Americans who are largely unaware of peace organizations there.

I support all those working tirelessly for a peaceful coexistence. It is important to listen to the concerns and aspirations of a broad range of individuals on both sides.

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.

please, don't forget that aged people can revitalise the other. A MISSION.

Peace pacts have never worked throughout history. The formation of a society of peoples (such as the EU) of disparate cultures that had been enemies for centuries (such as the EU) can bring peace.

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.

I don't know what to say; for I don't understand. Is it for me to understand? What I know is; there is one God. Strive for peace. Hatred, bigotry, killing, and murder are not the things of God.

The Children of Israel and the World are our future. Peace evolves from within and the idea of continuing War will be out of reach. Our kids prefer Love, Peace, and Joy!!

True Peace evolves from within. . Change is inevitable. Let go of that which does not serve in the name of Peace. Children are our future and they prefer Love, Peace and Joy.

I'm so grateful for The Elders. You bring together the wisdom of some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of our time to guide people towards peace and temperance.

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.

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

each journey begins with one foot in front of the other,extend your hand in peace and someone will always shake it

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.

The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know peace.

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 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.

Thank you to The Elders for getting out the truth about the oppression of the Palestinians and working for a peaceful resolution. For too many decades, the Western world hasn't paid attention.

Many thanks to The Elders. Humanity must understand that we are all the same. Believing in the same God.

Our brothers and sisters in the Middle East have a choice to make. Live in peace or rest in peace. I believe they will follow the example of Isaac and Ishmael and forgive each other.

The entire country' ,from the sea to the river,should be open to both Israelis and Palestinians, enjoying equal rights and rejecting any discrimination. This political entity should be a Condominium,

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

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.

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.
