Special Statement
Crisis in the Middle East
November 2023

Share International stands in solidarity with citizens’ movements and peace and human rights groups — more than 300 organizations of civil society from 50 countries — demanding an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and Israel. As the anti-war protest movement gathers strength around the world we confirm our support for all efforts to achieve an end to hostilities, to prevent a greater humanitarian catastrophe and further loss of innocent lives. The rule of law must be respected by all parties and the United Nations accepted as representing the collective will of humanity to secure the survival of the region and the planet.

The emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher

Many now expect the return of their awaited Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, the Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, or the Imam Mahdi. Millions now know that the one who fulfils all these expectations, Maitreya, the World Teacher, is already living among us and is gradually emerging into full public recognition.

Preferring to be known simply as the Teacher, Maitreya has not come as a religious leader, or to found a new religion, but as an educator in the broadest sense, a teacher and guide for all people irrespective of background or belief. Together with the Masters of Wisdom, He is here to show us how to solve our most critical global problems.

At this time of great political, economic and social crisis, Maitreya will inspire humanity to see itself as one family and create a civilization based on sharing, economic and social justice, and global cooperation.
