"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 ..."

Egypt blogger Mahfuz quizzed for 'defaming' military

BBC News, 14 August

Egypt's Revolution 

Leading Egyptian blogger Asmaa Mahfouz has been questioned for allegedly defaming the military on Facebook, the official Mena news agency reports.

Asma Mahfuz now faces a trial before a military
tribunal for her alleged Facebook comments
She was briefly detained by military prosecutors and later released on a bail of $3,356 (£2,062), it says.

Ms Mahfouz, one of the leaders of the revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak, is suspected of calling for assassination attacks against the military and judicial bodies.

Her lawyer denies the accusations.

'No tolerance'

According to Mena, Ms Mahfouz wrote on Facebook: "If justice is not achieved and the justice system fails us, no-one should feel upset or surprised if armed gangs emerge to carry out assassinations.

"As long as there is no law and there is no justice, anything can happen, and nobody should be upset."

The head of the military judicial authority, Maj Gen Mahmud Morsi, said the blogger had overstepped the limits of free speech by insulting the military, the AFP news agency reports.

He added that there would be "no tolerance to insults directed at the armed forces".

Mena said Ms Mahfouz was released on bail until a date is was set for her trial before a military tribunal.

However, Ms Mahfouz's laywer denied the accusations.

Hossam Issa told the AFP news agency: "What Asmaa wrote on Facebook is not a call to violence... She was only expressing her fears and that is not a crime".

The lawyer added that the comments attributed to Ms Mahfouz on the other social network - Twitter - were not her own and that someone had hacked into her account.

Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces took power after the mass street protests that forced President Mubarak to resign in February.

Earlier this month, Mr Mubarak went on trial on charges of corruption and ordering the killing of protesters.

The former leader denies the charges.
