"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 ..."

Senegal Seizes Russian Trawler Fishing 'Illegally'

Radio Free Europe, January 05, 2014

trawler "Oleg Naidenov"

Senegal's navy has boarded and seized a Russian-flagged ship suspected of fishing illegally in the country's waters, reportedly escorting it to a military base near the capital, Dakar.

Senegal's military said on January 5 that the ship, the "Oleg Naidenov," was boarded after it was observed illegally fishing in Senegalese waters near the border with Guinea Bissau.

Russian news agency reported that the ship had 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea Bissau aboard.

A spokesman for Russian state fishing company Rosrybolovstvo called it a "brash armed attack against the Russian fishing trawler."

Senegalese Fisheries Minister Haidar El Ali described the trawler as a "repeat offender."

The environmental group Greenpeace included the "Oleg Naidenov" on a blacklist of poaching vessels in West African seas.

Two years ago, Greenpeace activists painted the words "pillage!" and "plunder!" on the side of the "Oleg Naidenov's" hull after they discovered it fishing illegally -- with canvas covering its identifying markings -- in Senegalese waters.

The Russian Embassy in Senegal initially said it had not received any information about the detention of the trawler, which belongs to the company Feniks, registered in Murmansk, northern Russia.

A spokesman for Rosrybolovstvo, Aleksandr Savelyev, said: "We have not been provided with any sensible explanation from Senegalese authorities about the reasons behind this brash armed attack against the Russian fishing trawler. The crew -- both Russian and Guinea Bissau citizens -- is currently being held by [the Senegalese] military police onboard the trawler that is moored at a [marine] military base in Dakar. Russian fishing company Rosrybolovstvo representatives are trying to get through to them."

Yury Parshev, the executive director of the company that reportedly owns the "Oleg Naidenov," told Rossiya 24 TV that the seizure "is an attempt to squeeze out our flag and our fleet from this region of the world ocean among others -- plain and simple. We have been present there before and we have always worked in these territories."

Senegal has long battled unauthorized fishing by foreign trawlers in its waters.

In its blacklisting, Greenpeace noted that "[t]he 120 meter-long 'Oleg Naydenov' is one example of the enormous foreign fleet of foreign trawlers operating in West Africa’s waters."
