Message of support

Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.

We owe it to the young people of the world to create an environment of peace. To show them that war is a destructive force for the whole of the human race. I support the elders and send them love.

All of our human needs are the same. Safety for ourselves and our families, ease and peace. When we see our own humanity in others we are better able to find solutions for peace.

Having worked for peace personally since 1992, the majority of those years spent in the Holy Land, I have never stopped believing that peace is possible and will be a reality one day, when all want it

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 Elders is a small step for humanity to follow, and to understand that by peace only we can all live together happily ever after.

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.

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

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

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?
