"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."

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 ..."

Egypt's Suzanne Mubarak to hand over assets to state

BBC News, 16 May 2011

Egypt's Revolution

The wife of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has agreed to hand over assets to the state after being held in a corruption probe, officials say.

Suzanne Mubarak has recently
had a heart attack, reports say
They say Suzanne Mubarak will turn over a villa in a Cairo suburb and some $3m (£1.9m) held in bank accounts in Egypt.

The Mubaraks face allegations of illegally acquiring wealth whilst in power for 30 years.

Mr Mubarak - who was ousted in February - is also accused of involvement in the killings of anti-regime protesters.

'Idea of revenge'

Mrs Mubarak, aged 70, pledged on Monday to hand over the money and the villa.

By relinquishing her claims, she would be benefiting from articles in Egyptian law which allow those accused of making illegal gains of giving them up in exchange for dropping the investigation, lawyer Nasser Amin was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency.

"The decision may not be accepted by society, who after a revolution, side with the idea of revenge. But from the legal point of view, this is in line," the lawyer added.

The Mubaraks are currently under detention in hospital the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Suzanne Mubarak
  • Born 28 February 1941
  • Studied politics and sociology at the American University of Cairo
  • First Lady of Egypt from 1981 until 2011
  • Seen as driving force behind plans for her son Gamal to succeed father as president
  • Interrogated about a luxury villa she owns in Cairo, as well as $3m bank account
  • Ms Mubarak is half-Welsh, her mother Lily having grown up in Pontypridd
  • She is also famous as the patron of children's TV show Alam Simsim, Egypt's version of Sesame Street

The former first lady is recovering after falling ill when told she was being detained. Initial reports said she suffered a heart attack but some officials say it was a "panic attack".

Reformers in Egypt believe the Mubarak family accumulated a fortune worth tens of billions of dollars while in power.

Mr Mubarak, 83, has denied this, and little hard evidence has yet been made public. However their bank accounts in Cairo and in Switzerland have been frozen.

Many Egyptians also believe the former first lady was instrumental in pushing for her eldest son, Gamal, to succeed his father - one of the grievances that mobilised opposition protesters.
