"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 ..."

Tunisia's Ennahda agrees to make way for transitional government

Deutsche Welle, 5 October 2013

Tunisia's ruling Islamist Ennahda party has agreed a timetable with its political rivals to form a government of independents. The party has been accused of mismanaging the economy and failing to control extremists.

Ennahda and the mainly secular opposition agreed on Saturday to start work on forming a new government along with a special body to oversee elections.

Despite delays due to some last-minute disputes, Ennahda leader Rached Ghannouchi signed the roadmap in the presence of politicians and the media. Ghannouchi had, in a Twitter message, blamed the opposition for "last-minute blackmail" and refused to sign the text.

A deal was eventually reached, although it was initially unclear how the issues were resolved. The terms outline a timetable of three weeks for the creation of a transitional government of independent experts.

"I am optimistic for the future of Tunisia and that the dialogue process will lead to free and transparent elections," said President Moncef Marzouki at the signing ceremony. "The eyes of Tunisians and our friends abroad are on us and we cannot disappoint them - it is an historic responsibility."

The deal, brokered by the UGTT trade union confederation, requires the Ehnnahda-dominated elected assembly to finish writing a new constitution that would pave the way for elections.

Four mediators drew up the agreement, which provides for the nomination of an independent prime minister by the end of next week.

Ennahda was pressed to relinquish power after the murder of two political opponents sparked accusations that it was doing to little to reign in extremist supporters. In addition, the political turmoil has weakened the country's already fragile economy.

The party was voted into power after the overthrow of the country's deposed authoritarian president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, in January 2011.
