When it comes to establishing peace, there are essential factors that encourage peace whether it’s in the Middle East or in the world at large.
1)Wars and killing and violence go counter to the humanity that we have in common and also counter to the teachings present in all religions that speak of the sanctity of human life and engendering neighborly relations and good individual ties and speaks to the human conscience that resides in each person. What unites people is their common humanity and feelings that all people experience.
2)There must be between individuals and nations good intentions and efforts to respect each other. People from various traditions, religious groups, cultures, races, nations should emphasize through education the human need for people who are healthy to interact in the true spirit of co-existence and peace.
3.We have different religious traditions, and we need to understand each other. The differences are not a threat, but a way for us to get to know each other and to be seen as a positive challenge of growing through interfaith dialogues, engaging in confidence-building exchanges between individuals and groups. We must understand each other better in order to build the necessary foundation for achieving peace.
4.Every person and nation deserves a dignified life, and every person deserves that and would defend such a right. Every person wants freedom, the ability to be secure in creating a family, a stable life, the ability to pursue economic success, happiness. Each side must see the importance of attaining this for a person to believe in peace.
5.There should be frank and open discussions between people that are done in a calm regardless of the differences that exist, and can use our understandings of what is different to bridge the gaps and find common ground in a way that brings mutual benefits to both sides.
6.We must forgive one another for the mistakes made on both sides. We must work hard and put forward our best efforts to overcome the feelings behind creating violent situations, hatred, and selfishness in order to achieve true peace. We must also remember that peace is achieved as the fruit of justice. Without justice, there is no peace.
7.We should remember that no man is an island, that the parts affect the whole. With that in mind, we must stand besides those who need to be uplifted and who have felt neglected, so we can have healthier communities with healthier individuals. So many people have felt neglected and suffered. We must be compassionate and seek to assist them for in assisting them, we assist ourselves.
8.We must show solidarity for those who are and have been vulnerable due to violence or any kind of injustice and do our utmost to give them a sense of hope and convert their negative feelings into positive ones.
9.We must encourage all attempts at attaining positive relations and friendships between people from the different communities for it is through friendships one can make peace-making easier to achieve.
10.We must urge leaders responsible for the welfare of their people be they presidents, governors, leaders of international bodies to do put forward their best efforts in achieving justice for people from all nations and peace and respect between the nations of the world.
