The vast majority would prefer unselfish people like The Elders helping us build our countries. Rule by the self-obsessed minority causes war. http://www.theservicefoundation. com/2013/09/08/abc/

I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"

Forgiveness and Love are difficult when differences are long standing. We offer our support to anyone who can overcome their personal hurts and care for other human beings as themselves.

I would like to commend Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for stating his viewpoint which in fact is a viewpoint that has been long ignored by the international community.

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.

if we are all the children of G_D, then how could he love any of else greater or lesser? We are all the chosen of G_D and we are loved unconditionally and without bias. Peace is...Inevitable

There is no more important nor more attainable issue than that of World Peace. Only through peace can man work together to overcome all other challenges to the survival of mankind on Earth.

Peace a path, violence, a direction, peace is illusional, it's preferred over violence, which is delusional; peacing pays only much less than warring- no profit, pleasure in destruction or murder :)

Those who stand in the way of peace and empowerment of the residents of Gaza and East Jerusalem deserve to be exposed and embarrassed. We must stop sowing the seeds of future conflict now.

even the term 'assail' can have a positive connotation-'to make a resolute start on (a task)'. let's hope the oppressive regimes will begin to assail their people with resolute good-heartedness!

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

His action went beyond the struggle for a free South Africa. It illustrated the struggle to liberate human beings from the shackles both of racism and of revenge.

Let us hope that this spirit will become the order of the day. As Arnold Toynbee20 says: "Love is the ultimate force that makes for the saving choice of life and good against the damning choice of death and evil. Therefore the first hope in our inventory must be the hope that love is going to have the last word." We can no longer afford to worship the God of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate. Love is the key to the solution of the problems of the world.
