"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."

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.

U.N. Security Council unanimously condemns Yemen

CNN News, By Mick B. Krever, October 21, 2011

Yemeni dissident soldiers salute anti-government protesters Friday in Sanaa.

  • U.N. Security Council vote demands that Yemen allow peaceful protests
  • Resolution does not sanction embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh
  • Yemen has been engulfed in months of unrest

United Nations (CNN) -- The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Friday in favor of a resolution to condemn violence in Yemen, where demonstrators, government forces and rival factions have been embroiled in months of unrest.

The 15-0 vote demands that Yemen allow peaceful demonstrations to take place and to end government crackdowns on civilians.

It does not, however, sanction embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

"We welcome the long overdue condemnation of Yemeni government abuses, but believe the Security Council should have more clearly distanced itself from the (Gulf Cooperation Council) impunity deal," said Philippe Bolopion, U.N. director at Human Rights Watch.

The proposed deal, which Bolopion noted, referenced a GCC-brokered accord, backed by the United States and European Union, whereby Saleh could resign from power in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

"By signaling that there would be no consequence for the killing of Yemenis, the immunity deal has contributed to prolonging the bloodshed," Bolopion said.

Peter Wittig, German ambassador to the United Nations, said the resolution was "not ideal" but "can make a difference."

"We would have liked to express those messages that are in that resolution even in a stronger and more unequivocal form, especially the strong call to President Saleh to step down," he said.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkol Karman also weighed in Friday, calling the resolution "not sufficient."

"They have to discuss about the ousting of Ali Saleh and that he has to be handed over to the authorities immediately," claims the Yemeni activist who says she plans to stay in the United States "until I am able to submit Ali Saleh's case to the international tribunal."

"But in general," she said of the resolution, "I would say it is good."

Earlier this week, several people were killed during clashes with Yemeni security forces after anti-government protests filled the streets of the country's capital.

Crowds had marched through downtown Sanaa, where government forces allegedly gunned down protesters.

Hundreds of security forces attempted to restrict the protesters' movements, and tear-gas canisters could be seen flying toward the crowd, said hospital director Mohammed Qubati.

A senior U.S. official, speaking on condition on anonymity, said that Friday's resolution, introduced by Germany and the United Kingdom, would send a strong signal of urgency for political transition.

The official said that unanimity is an indication of greater consensus on the council.

Russia and China issued a rare double veto of a resolution condemning the violence in Syria this month.

Security Council members have said a political solution in Yemen should be based on a initiative put forward by the GCC, a political and economic union of Arab states.
