"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 ..."

Bahrain arrests 200 men at gay party

Antara News, Thu, February 10 2011

Manama (ANTARA News/Reuters) - Bahrain has arrested around 200 men, an official said on Wednesday, in what local newspapers said was a swoop on a gay party in the Gulf Arab island state.

An official at Bahrain`s Ministry of Interior, who asked not to be named, told Reuters the group was arrested last Thursday "due to immoral activities."

Media reports over the past week said police in the small conservative town of Muharraq raided a celebration hall filled with cross dressers and male revelers drinking wine and smoking water pipes.

"After entering the room, a secret source said he saw a large group of people from the third sex wearing scandalous female clothing ... and immediately called in the city patrol, which then surrounded the hall and arrested the suspects," the Bahraini newspaper Al-Ayam said.

The men were between 18 and 30 years old and were mostly from Gulf Arab countries and were also believed to have come to Bahrain specifically for the party, the daily said.

The official said foreign nationals were likely among those arrested but could not provide further details, adding the case had been referred to prosecutors. Local newspapers said there was one Syrian and one Lebanese man in the group.

Bahrain is considered among the more liberal Gulf states, with alcohol sold in shops while elsewhere in the Gulf sales are limited to hotels.

Its nightlife attracts weekend visitors from other Gulf countries such as Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to which Bahrain is linked via a causeway.

Gulf Arab states ban homosexuality, considering it a violation of Islamic values. Homosexual men in the region are regularly arrested and sentenced to prison terms.

"Bahrain has been more tolerant compared to for example the United Arab Emirates, without allowing it to be public," Said Boumedouha, a researcher at human rights group Amnesty International, said. He urged the Bahraini government to free anyone who had been arrested based on his sexual preferences.

A municipal official from Muharraq has called for a crackdown on celebration halls after the incident last weekend, the local paper Gulf Daily News said.

"I know the men had conned the hall`s manager into believing they were holding a birthday party," Ramzy al-Jalaleef was quoted as saying.

"However, it turned out, as I have heard, they were holding a wedding for two of the men."

Jalaleef told the paper that there should be careful investigation of events being booked in the town, which he said had 29 mosques and was very religious and conservative.

Officials at Bahrain`s public prosecution could not be reached for comment.
