"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 ..."

As China's premier, Li Keqiang, began his week-long trip to Africa on May. 4, Fumio Kishida, the Japanese foreign minister pledged on the same day that Tokyo is ready to provide US$31 billion in aid to Africa over the next five years, reports the Hong Kong-based Ta Kung Pao.

Kishida made the comments during an official visit to Republic of Cameroon for a two-day meeting to promote development in Africa, with the foreign minister telling senior officials from 50 African countries that Japan will increase aid to the continent. The timing of the Cameroon visit is no coincidence, the paper said, as Kishida's comments come as China has pledged $20 billion in aid to Africa.

Meanwhile, Li Keqiang arrived in Ethiopia on May 4 on the first leg of his four-nation tour, he will visit Nigeria, Angola and Kenya before leaving for China on May 11. During the trip, the premier will also attend the 24th World Economic Forum on Africa taking place in the Nigerian capital of Abuja on May 8.

According to China's state broadcaster CCTV, Li will sign around 60 agreements with the nation's partners in Africa, which will cover trade, health, culture, agriculture and training.

"I wish to assure our African friends in all seriousness that China will never pursue a colonialist path like some countries did, or allow colonialism, which belongs to the past, to reappear in Africa," Li told the state-run Xinhua News Agency at a press conference prior to his trip. Li stated that he expected to expand exchanges and cooperation on poverty reduction for common development with the African nations that he is visiting.

Li is also seeking to strengthen industrial and commercial cooperation by helping promote Africa's industrial and manufacturing sector, Ta Kung Pao said.
