"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 ..."

Ivory Coast: Ecowas wants more UN action on Gbagbo

BBC News, 24 March 2011

Ivory Coast crisis

The 9,000-strong UN force in Ivory Coast should have a tougher mandate to help oust Laurent Gbagbo from power, West African leaders say.

UN troops have come under attack from
supporters of Laurent Gbagbo
At a summit in Nigeria, they also said the UN Security Council should tighten sanctions on Mr Gbagbo and his allies.

The African Union had given Mr Gbagbo a deadline of Thursday to step down but has not said what it will do next.

Alassane Ouattara is widely recognised as the winner of last year's election in the world's biggest cocoa producer.

The UN says that 462 people have been killed in violence linked to the election dispute and about 500,000 forced from their homes.

The election was supposed to reunify the country which has been divided since a 2002 civil war.

The UN force in Ivory Coast should have the powers "to protect life and property and to facilitate the immediate transfer of power to Mr Alassane Ouattara", said a statement from the West Africa regional body, Ecowas.

Some African leaders have questioned why the world's powers have used military force in Libya but not Ivory Coast.

Mr Gbagbo's allies accuse the UN, its mission in Ivory Coast and the international community of being biased against him.

They say that attacks on their supporters are ignored, while a lot of attention is paid to violence against supporters of Mr Ouattara.

The UN says 52 people have been killed in the past week, mostly from shelling which it has blamed on supporters of Mr Gbagbo.
