"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 ..."

Thousands march to Bahrain`s Pearl Square

Antara News, Wed, March 2 2011

"We are brothers, Sunnis and Shiites," chanted the demonstrators who were predominantly Shiite

Manama (ANTARA News/AFP) - Thousands of Bahrainis took to the street Tuesday in an anti-regime protest heading to Pearl Square, the focal point of demonstrations for over two weeks.

"We are brothers, Sunnis and Shiites," chanted the demonstrators who were predominantly Shiite as they marched from the Salmaniah district of the capital, a few kilometres from the square.

Protesters were segregated, with men on one side and women clad in black abaya cloaks marching alongside them, an AFP reporter said.

Handicapped protesters on wheelchairs led the procession which passed through a street where police killed two anti-government demonstrators two weeks ago.

"We are in this march to stress the unity between Shiites and Sunnis in Bahrain," said Sheikh Mohammed Habib al-Muqdad, a cleric who was among 25 activists on trial for terrorism charges, who was freed last week in a royal pardon.

The unrest in the small Gulf state is part of a wave of protests that have rippled across North Africa and the Middle East since the revolt that ousted Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

Protesters in the Shiite-majority kingdom which is ruled by the Sunni al-Khalifa dynasty have been calling for the fall of the regime.

But Shiite-led opposition groups have taking a more moderate stance, demanding major reforms that would lead to establishing a "real" constitutional monarchy, as well as the resignation of the government which they hold responsible for the killing of seven protesters.

King Hamad bin Issa has entrusted his heir, Sheikh Salman with opening a wide-reaching dialogue with the opposition, an offer that is seen too late by hard core protesters.

The monarch had kick-started reforms with a referendum in 2001 that led to reviving the parliament in 2002, after it had been scrapped in 1975. But the legislature remains crippled by the authorities of the all-appointed upper chamber, and the king.
