"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 ..."

European Union plans 'coordinated response' to Egyptian violence

Deutsche Welle, 16 August 2013

EU leaders have condemned the violent response to protests in several Egyptian cities, which have led to loss of life. Germany has joined the outcry, freezing its aid to Egypt as events unfold.

Reports of fatal altercations between security forces and protesters in Egypt on Friday prompted an immediate pledge from leaders across the European Union to deliberate over how to respond to the crisis in coming days.

As news emerged of relentless violence on the streets of Cairo and several other cities, EU foreign policy Catherine Ashton released a statement, calling on EU member states to "coordinate appropriate measures" to take in response to the crisis in Egypt, calling the death toll figures known at that point "shocking."

The responsibility for the tragedy "weighs heavily on the interim government, as well as on the wider political leadership in the country," Ashton said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande also proposed a meeting of EU foreign ministers for early next week.

Other countries, including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Norway and Spain joined in the condemnation of the violent crackdown on critics of the interim government in separate statements released Friday.

International criticism and concern over the situation in Egypt grew on Wednesday after security forces forcibly cleared supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi from two sit-ins in Cairo. Over 600 people died in the subsequent violence.

Germany, France and the United Kingdom voiced their concern the following day by summoning the respective Egyptian ambassadors to their capital cities.

Berlin freezes aid

Meanwhile on Friday, Berlin suspended $25 million euros ($33.4 million) in aid to Cairo and said it was reevaluating its relationship to the interim government, "in view of the latest developments," a statement released by Chancellor Angela Merkel's office said.

The Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development also announced it would suspend funding for new development projects. However, the German Development Minister Dirk Niebel told DW on Friday that current projects would continue to receive federal support, as they benefited the people and not the government.

Saudi Arabia responds to crisis

The crisis in Egypt has drawn both criticism and sympathy from neighboring leaders. Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Recep Erdogan called the crackdown earlier this week a "massacre" and urged the UN Security Council to take action. However, Gulf neighbors, Saudi Arabia in particular, have supported the transitional government.

The UN said its Under Secretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman would include Egypt on his trip to the Middle East next week, which had been planned as a follow up to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's recent visit to the region.

Meanwhile, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia – who supported the coup that removed Morsi from office - defended the interim government's right to enforce the law and keep order on the streets.

"[Saudi Arabia] has stood and stands with its Egyptian brothers against terrorism, deviance and sedition," King Abdullah said in a speech televised on Saudi television.

He urged Egyptians to hinder "attempts to destabilize a country that is at the forefront of Arab and Muslim history."

Saudi Arabia was a close ally of ex-President Hosni Mubarak, whom Egyptians ousted in early 2011, and welcomed Morsi's removal from power this summer by pledging several million dollars in aid to Egypt.

The final item is this: All around you, dear ones, is proof of what I'm telling you. You have two countries currently in turmoil at the moment, and a third one about to go. All three have been stable for a very long time. Who would have thought that Egypt would be part of this? Egypt seemed to be in balance for decades - or was it? Syria ruled itself with an iron hand and created a stability of power that was absolute. What would then cause these to erupt the way they did and at this time? If you take a look at why, and why now, you'll see the timing is all around 2013 and 2012. And it's around Human consciousness that is starting to be more transparent and saying, "We don't want what we now understand and see is continuing unbalance in our country. We see it never getting better, and now we want finality and we want resolution." That is what you're looking at.

It's ugly to look at this, for there is death, suffering, sorrow and turmoil. There is frustration, and the resolution of it all may take longer than you want it to. But someday you will look back and see the results clearly. Mass Human consciousness is starting to change and demand what it expects in the way of integrity. Governments often want the old ways of power, but their people want schools, hospitals, safe streets and parks, and peace with their neighbors.

So expect more of this, especially this year. The more turmoil you see, the more the puzzle is being worked with. So we close this message the way we started it. I know who you are, magnificent one. I sit at your feet in awe. Do not miss this point! Old souls have been here through all of the transitions of humanity. Do you understand that? Four times you came close to this shift you are today experiencing and four times you missed it. Four times you died in the process of trying. This time you didn't.

Do not miss this: There is something within your Akash, a "remembrance button", that is being pushed and plays an emotion that says, "We've felt this before and it didn't turn out well." Don't let this energy define you. It's the button of duality and fear that says things are always the way they are and they will repeat themselves because that's just the way life works. No it isn't! You are magnificent and you have the ability at this point to finally begin to see it, and to cast all the fears and the voices in the back seat of life and tell them you are in charge now and you are the one driving the car of your reality. That's the message of the day. ….”
