Peace has always started with an open hand of friendship.

Peace is only a possibility if you let it be so.

It takes courage to call those who would kill us, are our brothers and sisters. It takes courage to say as Gandhi did:-
"I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill."

Both your peoples have suffered terribly from the wrongs of the past. The suffering continues. The weeping stones of Jerusalem cry out with blood of your children.
Peacemakers. This group, The Stones of Jerusalem has bee set up because I wanted to see a representative group of people join together to express through love and poetry their desire for peace and stability. As the group creator I am neither Jew nor Arab, so I will always be looking for guidance and leadership from you who share this great city.

As a city there are many divisions; physical, metaphysical, religious, cultural, wealth, access to services and many more that I am sure you will tell me about.

I want this to be a neutral meeting ground where we leave our hatreds, our pugnacious thoughts and our bitter arguments at the door. Here we meet as equals in every sense of that word. Here we meet as friends across the gaps and divisions.

I am particularly looking for poets from both sides who can best illustrate not only what Jerusalem has been but what it is and what it could become. I will invite poets to come to our group An Absence in Jerusalem on our sister site in ipeace where we are seeking to build an artistic bridge over the divisions. This group can be found on:-

How do we become the peace we seek?

call it stress for but its pain
that love is only the desire to
re frame.

from those who stress with no gain
of what is and will, "war conquers
No victories . losers of un victorious
counterparts laying dead in the rain

countries watch not making aid to make any peace.
make action,

' Our white Flag

for our beloved souls of war'

love embraces peace.

We must say,

conflicts are like un solved puzzles
for that love embraces our hearts.

compassion can seek out the best in us
if we only tried to feel.

progress must must work with all" and warm hearts and re guards must achieve great importance to accomplish such a process that we must meet eye view of our faces.

Words must be said in black and white in those write in peace and speak on words to come together and work with every one. there is problems that we need all to work together on. peace is never ending, we have to work as friends not enemies . a universal Declaration of human rights must be used. We can no longer rely on our leaders or supper powers to make these decisions on our be half any longer for it. "There is greed and war mongers that cause much of the problems to began with. This knowledge equal of this understanding awareness a better perception.

it is never a circle that ends using peace is the only thing we can establish on the internet a difference that can send peace to mindful people

Edward Church

We must use our best knowledge to try to make a difference then throw every thing away what we can try to accomplish

"The Universal Declaration of Human Rights" is a selfevident cornerstone of Jerusalem.

It is a beautiful fruit of the beatings from the compassionate heart of collective human experience, with a little help from the truths from rationalism, individualism, humanism and so on...

Ana, when there is a violent conflict between nations, or between children on the playground, do you think the only way it can end is when one side pulverizes the other into dust?

What if the "wrong" side "wins"? What if "winning" destroys the humane spirit and culture of the victors?

What about the fact that both children, or the people of both nations, are certain that they, not their adversaries, are the ones merely defending against unjustified attack?

Might it be possible for two sides, both intent on preventing harm to themselves by inflicting greater harm on their adversaries, to talk their way out of their mutual entanglement in violence? Might it be possible for Israelis and Palestinians of all political stripes to do that?
