"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 ..."

Wife of Gaddafi and three children flee Libya for Algeria

Algerian foreign ministry confirms wife Safia, daughter Aisha, and sons Mohammed and Hannibal have arrived in country

Efforts by Libya's new rulers to bring the Gaddafi clan to justice have received a blow this evening after it emerged that several family members had managed to flee the country for neighbouring Algeria.

The Algerian foreign ministry said Gaddafi's wife Safia, daughter Aisha and sons Hannibal and Mohammed and their children had entered Algeria at 8.45am on Monday, according to the state-run APS news agency.

Their fate remains unclear. Rebels have said that if any Gaddafi relatives escape to Algeria they will seek their extradition, but the outcome of such a move would be uncertain.

Algeria has refused to recognise the authority of Libya's new governing authority and has watched with alarm as autocratic regimes have fallen across the region over the past six months. Algerian authorities earlier in the year crushed an attempt to mimic a Tunisian style uprising in Algiers.

Libya's new governing authority says it has no credible information about Gaddafi's whereabouts. Several of his sons are thought to still be in Tripoli. There were reports on Monday night that another of his sons, Khamis, had been killed in an air strike south of Tripoli, but these could not be immediately confirmed.

Earlier the National Transitional Council justice minister, Mohammed al-Alagi, said the new leadership in Tripoli wanted to try Gaddafi in Libya if and when he is caught, rather than hand him over to the International Criminal Court. Alagi said the demands of national justice took precedence over the indictment issued at the end of June by the Hague-based court, seeking the arrest of Gaddafi for crimes against humanity.

The court also issued warrants for two of Gaddafi's top aides – his son and heir apparent Saif al-Islam and his intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanussi. The warrant refers to the early weeks of the conflict in February. "We consider that the national court and justice system has priority over international justice," the minister said.

Asked if he knew where Gaddafi might be hiding, he replied: "We don't comment on security issues, or where he might be."

The whereabouts of Gaddafi's other sons, Saif al-Islam, Mutassim and Saadi remain unknown, along with his second daughter Hannah, who was thought to have been killed in a US air strike in 1986, but was last week found to be working in a Tripoli hospital.

The director of the Sharwa Zarwa hospital in the centre of the capital has told the Guardian that Hannah Gaddafi had ordered staff not to treat wounded rebels during the past six months. "She also stayed here sometimes during the night," said Dr Ghassem Barouni.

Gaddafi's other son, Saif al-Arab, is thought to have been killed by a Nato strike in April. However, the reappearance of his second daughter after 25 years has left some members of the NTC sceptical of the claim.
