"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."


“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

Somali pirates seize yacht with four Americans onboard

CNN News, By the CNN Wire Staff, February 19, 2011

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • The yacht is hijacked in the Indian Ocean
  • U.S. officials say they are monitoring the situation
  • The yacht was en route from India to Oman

(CNN) -- Somali pirates hijacked a yacht with four Americans onboard in the Indian Ocean, U.S. military officials said Saturday.

The yacht seized Friday is owned by Jean and Scott Adam, according to a nongovernmental group that monitors piracy.

"If the owners are onboard, it would be a sad log for the couple on their seven-year world journey," said the group, Ecoterra International.

U.S. military officials said they are monitoring the situation.

"We have been aware for some time," said Bob Prucha, a spokesman for the United States Central Command.

The yacht was en route from India to Mina Raysut, the industrial port of Salalah, Oman, according to Ecoterra.

Piracy has flourished off the coast of Somalia, which has not had an effective government for two decades. In April 2009, pirates seized a U.S.-flagged ship off the coast of Somalia.

Navy snipers opened fire on pirates holding the American cargo-ship captain hostage, killing three pirates.

One pirate was arrested and the captain of the Maersk Alabama was rescued. U.S. forces moved to rescue Capt. Richard Phillips after seeing a pirate aiming a weapon on his back, officials said at the time.

The Somali man arrested was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison for acts related to high-seas piracy.

CNN's David McKenzie contributed to this report.


S/V Quest, reported hijacked by Somali pirates Friday, had four
Americans aboard, reportedly including owners Jean and Scott Adam,
who were sailing around the world.
