Message of support

Lutherans in the Holy Land and in the US are working tirelessly for peace for Israelis and Palestinians. This is a calling for all Christians to work energetically for peace and reconciliation.

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.

I was honoured to participate in the lunch yesterday and inspired by the message of hope and encouragement you bring. May G-d bless you and all of us with success in the mission of peace-making.

Dear Elders.... 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. Sincerely, Maurice Jacobsen

Peace is truly a working effort, while war and hatred seem to come easily. Our job is to show our children that peace is worth our greatest effort.

Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.

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.

We owe it to our grandchildren, to our children, to our parents, to our friends, neighbours and ourselves to act for peace. And the first step for peace is to communicate, have contact with the other.

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.

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.

Sharing will bring justice. Justice will bring peace. Sharing will save Israel and Palestine. Sharing will save the world.

Thank you for working so hard for real peace in our global village. I hope for a time when more of us recognise our common humanity rather than the things that divide us. Love and light to all.

We are all on the same planet, same species all the divisions are man made. The invisible 'lines in the sand' are illusions there are no STATES, Mine it's a choice. Look forward make peace.

Thank you to everyone who is working and praying for peace and justice, and especially to the Elders.

It is insufficient simply to support 'peace'. We need to set out the choice: either two states (partition) or a single democratic state. There is no third way.

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!

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.
Aharon Eviatar

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.

It is time we put aside our differences and reached out to our brothers and sisters in every Nation across the World and worked together for lasting peace.

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
Eva Bongartz

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.

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.

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.

Thank you for the brilliant webcast highlighting the challenges and opportunities for peace. It is essential that we keep the bright light of truth focused on reaching a true solution. Well done!

I sincerely hope your mission is successful and those people stop fighting in the Holy Land. I oppose all violence, even non-physical violence.

The Two States solution is Not a solution for the conflict in the Middle East. The real solution is necessarily more creative, and absolutely larger in scope and depth. Please cf lexeevictor.hpage.com
