"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 ..."

U.S. concerned about Bahrain activist, urges probe

(Reuters) - The United States is very concerned about a prominent Bahraini rights activist who opposition activists say was beaten by security forces on Friday and it has urged the government to investigate, a senior U.S. official said on Saturday.

The official said the facts of the case involving Nabeel Rajab, head of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, were in dispute but Washington was generally concerned about frequent reports Bahraini police use excessive force against protesters.

Bahrain, home to the U.S. Fifth Fleet, launched a sweeping crackdown on anti-government protests last year that drew criticism internationally and from an inquiry panel that found security forces had tortured people to obtain confessions.

Opposition activists said security officers threw Rajab to the ground and beat him on the head, neck and back during a confrontation after a protest march on Friday.

Bahrain's Interior Ministry denied those accounts, saying on its Twitter feed that police found Rajab "lying on the ground" and took him to the hospital for treatment.

"We are very concerned about this case," the U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. He said a U.S. Embassy official had visited Rajab on Saturday.

"The facts here are in dispute but we are, and have expressed to the government, our real concern about the case," said the official. "What we are urging the government to do is to conduct a full investigation and, if excessive force was used by the police, they need to hold the relevant people accountable."
