"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 ..."

Rival Palestinian factions agree on unity government

Deutsche Welle, 6 February 2012

After four years of division, Fatah and Hamas have agreed to form a joint government to end the split between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. The two Palestinian factions hope to hold elections as soon as possible.

The rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas reached an agreement on Monday to form a unity government, with Fatah leader and Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas at the helm in the run up to elections later this year

Abbas and Khaled Mashaal, the chief of the militant Islamic group Hamas, signed the agreement in the Gulf nation of Qatar whose government helped broker the deal.
"We promise our people to implement this agreement as soon as possible," Abbas said.

Palestine has been politically divided between the Gaza Strip and West Bank since 2006, when Hamas beat the secular Fatah movement in parliamentary elections. Hamas then kicked Fatah out of the Gaza Strip after a series of deadly clashes in June 2007.

Reconciliation deal

Under Monday's agreement, Abbas is set to become prime minister of the unity government, replacing Western-backed Salam Fayyad. The two factions originally agreed to the reconciliation deal in May, 2011 in Cairo, but disagreements over who would head the unity government had delayed a final deal. Hamas was opposed to Fayyad.

Mashaal said that Hamas and Fatah were "serious about healing the wounds" in order to "reunite our people on the foundation of a political partnership in order to devote our effort to resisting the (Israeli) occupation."

The Palestinian factions agreed to hold elections, currently scheduled for May, as quickly as possible.

"We agreed on the importance of holding the elections quickly… and removing any obstacles that might delay the polls," said Fatah spokesman Azzam al-Ahmad.

It remained unclear whether or not the West would back the unity government. Israel, the European Union and the United States consider Hamas a terrorist organization. While Fatah supports a negotiated settlement with Israel, Hamas is officially sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state.
