"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 ..."

DR Congo: 48 rapes every hour, US study finds

BBC News, 11 May 2011

DR Congo: Dreaming of Democracy

A study by US scientists has concluded that an average of 48 women and girls are raped every hour in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rape has long been a feature of the conflict
raging in eastern DR Congo
The study, in the American Journal of Public Health, found that 400,000 females aged 15-49 were raped over a 12-month period in 2006 and 2007.

That rate is 26 times more than the previous estimate of 16,000 rapes reported in one year by the UN.

The DRC says the figures reflect women being better able to report rape.

Sexual violence has long been a dominant feature of the continuing conflict in eastern DR Congo.

Amber Peterman, leading author of the study, said: "Our results confirm that previous estimates of rape and sexual violence are severe underestimates of the true prevalence of sexual violence occurring in the DRC.

"Even these new, much higher figures still represent a conservative estimate of the true prevalence of sexual violence because of chronic underreporting due to stigma, shame, perceived impunity, and exclusion of younger and older age groups as well as men," she added.

Worst affected area

The study, entitled Estimates and Determinants of Sexual Violence Against Women in the Democratic Republic of Congo, used data from a 2007 government health survey.

Previous estimates have been derived from police and health centre reports.

The highest numbers of rapes were found in war-ravaged North Kivu, where an average of 67 women out of 1,000 have been raped at least once.

However, the report said sexual violence was also widespread outside the conflict zones of eastern Congo.

The BBC's Thomas Hubert in Kinshasa says the study is in line with earlier reports that found sexual violence was spreading outside of war zones and into Congo's civilian society.

Government spokesman Lambert Mende told the BBC that recent increases in rape figures were a result of better reporting rather than rising violence.

"The report itself of these scientists is an evidence of the state becoming more and more efficient by dispatching judges, prosecutors, police all over the country," he said.

"It is that, that allows people now to complain and to feed such reports."

Commenting on the report, Michael VanRooyen, director of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, said that "rape in the DRC... has emerged as one of the great human crises of our time".
