"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 ..."

Mali interim government urged by Ecowas

BBC News, 8 July 2012

Mali's coup crisis 

There are fears northern Mali could
turn into a haven for jihadist groups
A summit of Western African leaders has called for a national unity government to end the political crisis gripping Mali since a military coup in March.

The regional bloc, Ecowas, also urged Mali to request international military intervention to win back the country's rebel-held north.

The area was seized by Islamist and Tuareg rebels after the March coup.

Since then, a shaky interim government has been formed in Mali, but the coup leaders remain powerful.

The Ecowas summit also called for the International Criminal Court to investigate alleged war crimes committed by the rebels in the north.

The meeting in Ouagadougou - capital of neighbouring Burkina Faso - was attended by six regional heads of state.

In a statement, they urged Mali's interim President, Dioncounda Traore, to request that Ecowas and the UN authorise the deployment of an Ecowas force to restore order in the country.


After the Islamist group Ansar Dine and Tuareg separatists overran more than half of Mali, coup leader Capt Amadou Sanogo agreed to hand over power to a civilian interim government, but stability has remained elusive.

President Traore, who is recovering in Paris from injuries sustained when he was beaten by coup supporters in May, was not present at the Ouagadougou summit.

Recently, the rebel alliance has ruptured, with Islamist fighters chasing Tuareg rebels out of several northern towns and imposing sharia law.

They have also prompted international alarm by damaging the shrines of Muslim saints, which they regard as un-Islamic, in the historic northern town of Mali.

The developments have prompted fears that Mali's north could turn into a haven for Islamist militants.
