"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 ..."

President Dmitry Medvedev has signed a decree to implement UN Security Council resolution 1973 that introduces sanctions against the Libyan regime.

The resolution that was adopted in March imposes a no-fly zone over the North African country and allows the use of force to defend civilians.

Medvedev’s decree bans Libyan planes from flying over Russia, with the exception of humanitarian flights, the Kremlin’s press service said on Friday. Russian warships have been authorized to examine vessels sailing from or to Libya in the open sea if they are suspected of carrying military personnel, weapons or other banned cargo.

The draft decree also bans operations involving money or the financial assets of  the closest relatives of Muammar Gaddafi, his entourage, Libyan legal entities, and bans several individuals from traveling to or via the Russian Federation.

Moscow has also banned financial operations involving money or the financial assets of the Libyan leader’s closet family members as well as some Libyan companies. The entry into Russia for some individuals linked to the current Libyan regime has also been denied.

The UN Security Council’s resolution on Libya, adopted in March, gave a green light to the military operations being conducted by some Western countries against Tripoli. Moscow abstained from voting on the resolution which authorized the use of force. But Russia then banned the sales of arms to Libya on the president’s initiative. Gaddafi and his close allies were denied entry to Russia.

Medvedev said that the Libyan leader “has exhausted his legitimacy and must go.” But Russia has been criticizing the way the military operation is exercised and insisting that the civilian population should be protected.

Meeting with his Libyan counterpart Abdul al-Obeidi on July 21, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on both sides of the Libyan conflict to bring the hostilities to an immediate halt. The top priority now is to stop the bloodshed and launch a political dialogue, he said. Russia wants all political forces in Libya to start talks about “the democratic future” of the country.
