"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 ..."

Dozens of Israeli artists and academics on Thursday proclaimed their support for the Palestinian United Nations statehood bid, outside of Independence Hall in Tel Aviv.

The setting was symbolic, held outside the same building where former Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the independence of the state of Israel on May 14, 1948. Earlier on Thursday, the group of 82 intellectuals and artists published a declaration supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines. At the demonstration on Thursday, the public was invited to sign their names alongside the declaration.


The declaration reads “we, the undersigned, call on all persons seeking peace and freedom, and upon all nations to join us in welcoming the Palestinian Declaration of Independence, to support it and to work and act together in order to encourage the citizens of both countries to live together in peace, based on the '67 borders and mutual agreement. A final and complete end to the occupation is a basic condition for the freedom of both peoples, for the realization of Israel's Declaration of Independence and a future of peaceful coexistence.”

The undersigned include actress and Israel Prize laureate Gila Almagor-Agmon, former Education Minister and Israel Prize laureate Shulamit Aloni, former head of the IDF education branch Maj. Gen (Ret) Nehemiah Dagan, former Chief Education Officer, and author and Israel Prize laureate Amos Oz.

Former Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and one time Israeli Ambassador to South Africa Alon Liel told the crowd that Israelis must support the Palestinian statehood bid and ignore Washington’s impending veto of the initiative.

Liel called US President Barack Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly the day before “a knockout punch to [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas. A clearly anti-Palestinian US campaign speech. A speech where he said the US supports the rebels in Tunisia, in Libya, in Egypt, in Bahrain, but in Palestinian? No. The Palestinians are something else because they are facing Israel.”

“It hurts to see a president like Obama, who caused us to feel such great hope, dismiss Abu Mazen who has spent three years working on the diplomatic track,” Liel said, adding “Obama and the US of today are no longer running the world today, there is a larger international community that can run the world. The US doesn’t have the power to deal you this blow.”

The gesture was in a sense a repeat of a similar effort this April, when a group that included many of the same Israelis proclaimed their support for a Palestinian state outside Independence Hall. Thursday’s effort was significantly more subdued and low-key than the one in April, in which large numbers of passersbies began booing and shouting the protestors, and a number of shoving matches broke out.

On Friday, the left-wing organization Peace Now will also hold a series of demonstrations in support of the Palestinian statehood bid. Entitled “Israel says yes to the Palestinian state,” the event will include rallies in north Tel Aviv at the corner of Arlozorov and Namir, in Jerusalem under the Strings Bridge, in Kiryat Ono, and in Haifa.
