"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 ..."

Niger: Junta hands over to President Mahamadou Issoufou

BBC News, 7 April 2011

Niger's junta has officially handed over power to newly elected President Mahamadou Issoufou - 14 months after seizing power.

It was third time lucky for Niger opposition leader
Mahamadou Issoufou when he won the poll in March
The BBC's Idy Baraou says Mr Issoufou was sworn in at a ceremony attended by eight other African heads of state.

A long-time opposition leader and ex-mining engineer, he won last month's run-off with nearly 58% of the vote.

Soldiers ousted President Mamadou Tandja in February 2010 after he sought a third term in office.

Our reporter in Niamey says crowds of people waited in 40 degree heat outside the stadium where the ceremony took place to greet the newly sworn-in leader.

The military junta declared the day a public holiday and has gone to great effort to spruce up the capital, determined to make the event a success, he says.

During the ceremony, the outgoing junta leader, Salou Djibo, was decorated for his services to democracy.

In his speech, Mr Issoufou said it had taken patience and sacrifices to see that democracy returns to Niger.

He promised to alleviate poverty and fight famine in the largely desert nation, which has reserves of uranium.

Niger remains one of the world's poorest nations, and has witnessed a number of coups since independence from France in 1960.

Mr Tandja spent 10 years in power before being overthrown in the coup after the constitution was changed to enable him to stay in power.

He is currently in prison facing charges of corruption.
