"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 ..."

Death toll in Kenya university attack approaches 150

The death toll from the attack on a university has again risen dramatically. Officials now put the number of students killed at almost 150. An operation against the militants was said to have come to an end.

Deutsche Welle, 2 April 2015

The death toll from the attack on a university has again risen dramatically. Officials now put the number of students killed at almost 150 with many more wounded.

Kenya's national disaster response agency announced via its Twitter account on Thursday that the number of people killed in the attack on Garissa University College, which began more than 12 hours earlier had risen to 147.

In a previous tweet, the agency said that the siege had now ended and that security forces had killed all four gunmen involved in the attack. It also said that plans were underway to evacuate students and other affected persons.

Earlier, Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery and the national police chief, Joseph Boinet held a press conference in Garissa, with Nkaissery putting the death toll at just 70, with around 80 wounded.

Boinet also announced that the authorities had imposed a dusk to dawn curfew for Garissa as well as the nearby counties of Wajir, Tana River and Mandera, each of which is located near the Somali border, as a security precaution.

Fast-track for 10,000 new police recruits

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta announced a few hours earlier that he had instructed Chief Boinet to fast-track the recruitment and training of 10,000 new police officers. Speaking in a nationally televised address, President Kenyatta said that Kenya had "suffered unnecessarily due to shortage of security personnel."

The Somalia-based Islamist militant group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Al-Shabab has pledged to punish Kenya for contributing troops to an African Union force fighting the militants in Somalia. The Islamist group also claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi in 2013.
