"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 ..."

Iran arrests documentary film-maker: report

Google/AFP, 27 June 2011

TEHRAN — Iranian film-maker and women's rights activist Mahnaz Mohammadi has been arrested in the capital, the opposition website Kaleme.com reported.

Mohammadi "was arrested on Sunday morning at her home by unidentified security forces," said the site of former premier Mir Hossein Mousavi, who is currently under house arrest, adding that "the reason for her arrest is unknown."

Kaleme.com reported that Mohammadi may have been arrested by the intelligence services of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.

Her arrest has not been reported by official or other media in Iran.

Mohammadi, director of the short documentary "Women Without Shadows," has won several awards and contributed to veteran Rakhshan Bani-Etemad's "We are half of Iran's population" documentary on women's demands in the 2009 presidential poll.

Kaleme.com said Mohammadi was arrested and released in July 2009, together with prominent film-maker Jafar Panahi, at a cemetery south of Tehran.

They had attended a ceremony commemorating those killed in the crackdown that followed the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which the opposition considered to have been rigged.

Cinema industry sources in Paris told AFP on Monday that Mohammadi's passport was seized recently, preventing her from going to Cannes in May for the screening of Reza Serkanian's "Marriage Ephemeral," in which she was the lead actress.

In a message from Mohammadi read out by acclaimed film-maker Costa-Gavras during a debate in Cannes, she said she was in the process of making a new documentary on Iranian women, the French sources said.

"I am a woman, I am a film-maker, two sufficient reasons to be guilty in this country," said the message, adding: "I have hope."
