"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 ..."

EU opens new office in Libyan rebel stronghold

Deutsche Welle, May 22, 2011

The EU makes a strong political
statement with the office
The European Union has underscored which side of the divide they intend to support in Libya by opening a new liaison office in what has essentially become the rebel capital of Benghazi.

European Union foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, vowed to offer long-term EU support to Libyan rebels, as she traveled to Benghazi on Sunday to open a new office in the rebel-held city.

“It is an honor to meet the people who have been fighting for democracy and a better future in Libya,” Ashton said in a statement ahead of the afternoon event. “Opening an EU office is an important signal of our support for the Libyan rebels,” she said.

At the start of her visit, Ashton met the head of the interim Transitional National Council (TNC), Mustafa Abdul Jalil, and other local and international figures.

EU goes a step further

Issues on the agenda include the EU's support for security reform, border management, economic development, health and education.

“The people of Libya have spoken about the future they want to see, and on behalf of 27 member states of the EU , I am proud to be here to offer our support into that future,” Ashton said in a brief address to reporters in Benghazi.

While the EU already has a presence in Libya through its humanitarian aid agency, the Benghazi office is meant to focus on non-humanitarian needs and coordinate EU activities in the country.

Ashton's visit is a boost for the rebels who have been lobbying the international community to formally recognize their interim council. The European Parliament has been urging the EU, as a whole, to recognize the NTC, which, so far, has only been recognized by France, Italy, Qatar and Gambia.
