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.
South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.
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.
Tolerance, Respect for Human Rights and Peace, can't no be achieve separately. Our world without those 3 elements is just unsustainable.
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.

Only when a people feel safe, empowered, respected and sustainable will peace among those peoples become real.
Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.
Men and women are both incredibly important to bring peace to the middle east. It takes both of us to make the world go around and we are falling down on the job. We must work together!
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.
Our Elders you are real heroes of this world, Middle eastern people were living together in peace many centuries, and it is possible again keep going and we will support you!
Peace , a simply word with a great meaning! Inside this word we are friendship, collaboration, love, union, the sounds of our hearts...Try to follow this word in every moment of our life!
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
When we have justice for women in the Middle East, peace will be the collateral benefit.
*love thy enemy not just to be your friend but more so your brother,for he is*
i have walked kids along the hills of south Hebron harrassed and threatened by settlers for walking the hills of Hebron
The U.S. should not wait two years. It should recognize Palestine de facto NOW.

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.
The future - they are our children -
Have you noticed how smart they are?
- they never hold grudges -
It's time we grow up - by re-writing the History books - to obtain peace.
It has been said that until the children of the Middle East sleep soundly in their beds, neither will children around the world. Please join us in this historic opportunity for peace.
Peace is personal, first of all. When we have peace in our hearts and within our families we can do more to create a peaceful world.
Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.
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?
If a friend can become an enemy. Then an enemy can become a friend.

Prayers and work for peace in our household don't stop after 30 years. We will not give up.

As an American Jew I opposed the right of the Apartheid regime in South Africa to exist, just as I oppose the right of the Apartheid regime in Israel to exist. Racism has no right to exist.

I hosted the Elders dialogue today at Government house in Jerusalem.
The path to peace is there to grasp through women and children of the coming generations.
The choice is yours!
Thank you Hanar Shaat for the wonderful article you published here on October 18, 2010. You have the vision.
In South Africa we learnt that when you cast aside fear, forgive and move forward with courage: anything is possible!
