"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 ..."

Libya government declares ceasefire

The army of Libya's internationally recognized government has declared a unilateral ceasefire. Hours earlier, the United Nations had threatened to impose sanctions if fighting in the North African country continued.

Deutsche Welle, 18 Jan 2015


In a statement released on Sunday, Libya's army said that its troops would observe the ceasefire from midnight local time (2200 GMT) on the same day.

The army also said it would monitor the situation on the ground "to prevent any change in front lines or transportation of weapons and ammunition," which it would consider a violation of the truce.

The statement added that the army would, however, continue to pursue "terrorists" and that soldiers "have been given the right to defend themselves if they come under fire."

Ahead of UN-brokered peace talks that resume in Geneva next week, the world body hailed Sunday's ceasefire as a "significant" step towards ending months of violence.

Just hours before the ceasefire was declared on Sunday, the UN Security Council had threatened to impose sanctions on any party that obstructed peace efforts in the North African country.

Sanction threats

On Friday, the Islamist-led militia Libya Dawn, based in Libya's capital, Tripoli, said that it too had agreed to a ceasefire on the condition that rival factions respected the truce.

It also pledged to open up "safe passages to channel humanitarian aid," especially in Libya's battleground second city of Benghazi.

Unlike representatives of Libya's recognized government, however, Libya Dawn did not participate in the first round of talks in Geneva last week.

Since Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown in 2011 after 42 years as the country's de facto ruler, Libya has gradually descended into ever deeper conflict, with rival governments and powerful militias battling for control of its main cities and oil wealth.

UN special envoy to Libya, Bernardino Leon, also warned last week of the threat of Libya becoming a hotbed of Islamist insurgency.
