"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 ..."

Tunisia president nominates old regime veteran as prime minister

Tunisia's President Beji Caid Essibsi has chosen Habib Essid, a bureaucrat under former dictator Ben Ali, as prime minister designate. The veteran politician has been tasked with forming a coalition government.

The newly elected President Essibsi also asked Essid (pictured left) to name his cabinet within a month.

The 65-year-old prime minister designate was put forward by the country's secular Nida Tunis party after consultations with two smaller liberal outfits, the Free Patriotic Union and Afek Tunis. Nida Tunis says Essid was chosen for his political independence and expertise in managing security and economic matters.

"I had the honor of being received today by the president who tasked me with forming the new government," the prime ministerial nominee told the media at the presidential palace on Monday after meeting with Essibsi, who won Tunisia's first free presidential elections in November and was inaugurated last week.

Nida Tunis won the most votes in October 2014 elections but needs the support of several other parties in the parliament to gain a majority. The North African country's moderate Islamist party Ennahda, which came second in the polls, has not ruled out the possibility of joining a coalition.

"From today, we will start the consultations with the parties, national institutions and civil society," Essid said on Monday.

Essid worked as a top interior ministry civil servant under former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who was overthrown in a popular revolt in 2011. He also served as interior minister in an interim government led by anti-Islamist Essibsi after the Arab Spring revolution.

Economic stagnation and a rise in Islamist extremism are some of the main challenges facing the new government.
