Today’s triple bombings in Brussels, Belgium, are the latest ISIS attacks. They follow an attack in Istanbul only three days ago.
Shortly after the Brussels attacks, I watched President Obama, supposedly “the Leader of the free world,” speaking to the people of Cuba. He began his speech with a brief reference to the Brussels bombings, extending his condolences to the families of those killed. He then continued with the pre-set program, including attending a baseball game.
Once again, I was struck by how the President of the United States is living in the past, rather than the more complex present. He’s not the only one, of course. Aspiring presidents are mostly just the same.
It’s a sixties generation thing.
Remember the sixties, when the western world was turning to the left, immediately prior to the birth of multiculturalism, which has been the official religion of western countries ever since?
Liberal thinking has created a very different world from what we had over 50 years ago. Both Republicans and Democrats, Conservatives and Labour, have all wanted the same things, working toward the same goals.
Now, it’s all falling apart and we’re seeing a return to some of the old values, including patriotism, ethnic identity, nationalism, Trump in America, AfD in Germany and UKIP in the UK. Other parties want the same things in Sweden, Finland, Poland, The Netherlands, Italy and elsewhere.
The world is, once again, on the cusp of significant change.
Note the following comment made on the Fox Business Network Monday, prior to the Brussels attack. Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Retired), said: “Not all cultures are equal . . . the Middle East and Islam as currently practiced is currently not compatible with western civilization.”
Following the comment, Englishman Stuart Varney wondered aloud what the implications would be of the EU’s new agreement with Turkey. While the Middle Eastern country is willing to take back the migrants who do not qualify to stay in Europe, 78 million Turkish citizens will have the right of visa-free travel to all EU member countries. Many are not likely to return home.
More Muslims = more terrorism! That’s because a certain percentage will be extremists. And, as Lt. Col. Ralph Peters observed, the religion as practiced is not compatible with western civilization.
Dealing with the problem requires a major change in immigration policies. That’s not going to come from most western politicians, who are still influenced by liberal 1960’s thinking that says all peoples are the same and can all mix together peaceably.
Just a few days before the latest terror attacks in Brussels, the European Union signed the agreement with Turkey. Again, like American politicians, the EU’s top leaders are still living in the sixties – they haven’t woken up yet to the threat from Islam nor have they even begun to figure out how to deal with it.
That will come. Today’s attacks may be a turning point – the attackers were attacking the European Union ‘s capital, Brussels. One bomb hit the railway station close by the headquarters of the European Commission. Europe itself was under attack – not just Brussels or Belgium.
Another interesting development today is how quickly the bombers were identified as ISIS by the Belgian authorities. ISIS later claimed responsibility. Normally, following an attack in the US or the UK, we are told not to blame Islamists, or that there is no evidence this was terrorism. Some are still in denial, but others are waking up! Speaking in Havana, Cuba, President Obama could not bring himself to use the term “Islamic terrorism”.
Daniel 11 is a prophecy about the Middle East, written more than five centuries before the time of Jesus Christ. It’s amazingly detailed from Alexander the Great until Roman times. Then it leaps 2,000 years until the present era. The reason for the leap is that there was no Jewish nation in the Holy Land during that time period. Jerusalem is the epicenter of Bible prophecy, which focuses primarily on the Middle East and Europe.
The two play a central role in end-time events.
“The king of the south” is set to “push” against “the king of the north”, unleashing the military power and wrath of the latter, the prophesied Beast-power of Revelation 17, a revived Roman Empire. What happened Tuesday in Brussels is likely part of this “push”, following on from Paris and other lesser attacks on Europe.
More attacks will follow. It will take Europe some time to fully wake up. But it will come. It’s either that or we will witness the fall of western civilization!
