The Muslim wind is blowing strong across Europe; and European leaders are bewildered as to how to handle this nightmare. I’m talking about the nightmare of mass Islamic migration into European cites. The crisis is putting enormous stress on the healthcare system, creating more no-go zones within European cities, and setting off a crime wave that includes rape, theft and a rapid increase in the assault of women.
One example of the chaos is expressed in what is called ‘Rape Jihad’.
Rape jihad has moved from Tahrir Square in Cairo to Malmö in Sweden to Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and now to Cologne, Germany. It works this way: A group of men encircles the targeted woman or girl, trapping her while walling off police and other would-be rescuers. The men then start to touch, grope and assault the women, ripping off clothes and stealing their purses and cell phones. Knowing they are a protected class, the Muslim men have little fear of the police —The abusers yell… “You can’t do anything to me,” and “Mrs. Merkel invited me here,” these are just some of the reported taunts. By the time police reach the victim, the assailants have moved on to the next woman. Hundreds of women are assaulted, leaving them terrified and humiliated.
The tide of rape in Europe is rising. Let’s look at the example of Sweden, that nation has taken in more refugees per capita than any other country in Europe. And what is the fruit of Sweden’s generous but naïve approach to refugees from the world of Islam? Reports out of Sweden are frightening. Cold statistics reveal a horrible truth, and remember Sweden is seen as Europe’s most liberal nation, and most generous nation when it comes to refugees. Muslims represent as many as 77 percent of rape cases in Swedish cities. In Stockholm this summer there was an average of 5 rapes a day. Thanks to migrants flooding into certain Swedish cities Sweden now claims the dubious distinction of having the second highest rape per capita incidents in the world — surpassed only by Lesotho in southern Africa.
The wages of Muslim immigration are proving to be a sexual assault epidemic by a misogynistic code. As Muslim men immigrated to Sweden, they brought with them an Islamic culture sanctioning rape. Statistics now suggest that at least 1 out of every 5 Swedish women will be raped. The National Council for Crime Prevention report bears this out. It noted that Muslim immigrants from North Africa were 23 times more likely to commit rape than Swedish men. It should not surprise us why today Sweden is deemed the rape capital of the Western world.
Germany may be following in Sweden’s path. The tensions simmering beneath Germany’s willingness to take in over one million migrants over the past 12 months erupted into the open in January after reports that hundreds of young women in Cologne, Germany had been groped and robbed on New Year’s Eve by gangs of men described by the authorities as having Middle Eastern appearances. This is what happened…
Taking advantage of a street party in Cologne, hundreds of young Muslim men broke into groups and formed rings around young women, refusing to let them escape—the men, some newly arrived refugees, groped dozens of women while others stole wallets or cellphones. For the women it was a nightmare. More than 650 were assaulted or robbed that night in Cologne. Details followed in police reports, describing women as having been “grabbed” by “breasts and bottoms”. The nation of Germany is in shock; the German citizens of Cologne are enraged! Police from Cologne report that 40% of migrants from North Africa (Muslims); have run-ins with the law. Twelve of 16 German states now report New Year’s assaults similar to what happened in Cologne. Similar bullying of women also took place in Hamburg, Stuttgart and Berlin.
A new poll found that 40 percent of Germans are so disgusted with German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy on refugees that they want her to resign. German leader Merkel has earned a huge amount of ill will for letting 1.1 million refugees from Africa and the Middle East pour across Germany’s border. She recently admitted that the refugee crisis has gotten out of hand and Europe has lost control of the situation. In Sweden, a scandal erupted after it emerged that police had suppressed a report of mass groping by Middle East migrants at a festival last summer.
The unprecedented surge over the past 10 months has been astounding. A massive wave of migration has been sweeping into Europe –Some Europeans are calling it the Muslim invasion. The refugees are coming from countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan arriving in Europe usually via Turkey and Greece and then continuing their journey through the Balkans to Austria, Germany and the Nordic countries. Is this a ticking time bomb about to explode? Apparently that explosion is already in progress.
Why is the refugee crisis important to watch, how could it fit into end time events and prophecy? The overarching impact of the European refugee crisis is that it DESTABALIZES EUROPE; it creates fear, anger and political mayhem. The crisis has fueled the rise of right wing political parties all across Europe. More and more Europeans are looking for a strong leader who will say NO to the surging wave of migrants coming from the middle East and Africa. We will see major political change in Europe over the next 2-3 years.
In the real world, not the fantasy world of socialist European multiculturalism, a lesson from the Bible bears reviewing. When Israel was a nation, they were to drive out certain people from the land. There are those who live in the land who are dangerous, they need to be dealt with swiftly, and not allowed into the land [nation] in the first place. A lesson that Europe has failed to appreciate: “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall come about that those whom you let remain of them will become as pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they will trouble you in the land in which you live”—Numbers 33:55.
I’m afraid naïve Europe will suffer even greater turmoil in the years ahead as a result of embracing the toxic fantasy of multiculturalism—the Muslim push into Europe will lead to chaos.
Why is Syria important? Its strife is impacting all of the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Russia and the United States. Syria was once a nation of close to 22 million people. It has now imploded, being engulfed in a vicious proxy civil war.
Syria is a complicated nation, always has been. The 22-million population comprises various ethnic and religious groups, including Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Christians, Druze, Alawite Shias and Arab Sunnis. About 75 percent are Sunni Muslims but the minority Alawites, the sect of President Assad, rules the country, they are a version of Shia Islam.
I remind you–This insane Syrian civil war has killed nearly 300,000 people, displaced half of the country’s population—11 million, and facilitated the rise of ISIS. Millions have fled Syria flooding into neighboring nations as seen in the map below:
What is going on in Syria is partly a civil war of government against people; partly a religious war setting Assad’s minority Alawite sect, aligned with Shiite fighters from Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon, against Sunni rebel groups; and also a proxy fight featuring Russia and Iran against Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.
An end to the Syrian conflict is nowhere in sight, and more countries are being drawn into the mayhem. Notice a recent development out of Saudi Arabia–Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the creation of an Islamic military coalition… The coalition would consist of 34 countries, mostly Arab countries. They have pledged to fight against the Islamic State which, remember, has its headquarters in Raqqa Syria, a city of 220,000. Here is an abbreviated list of nations, mostly Islamic, who will now be involved in Syria —at least to a degree.
In addition to Saudi Arabia, the coalition will include Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Turkey, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, Guinea, the Palestinians, Comoros, Qatar, Cote d’Ivoire, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria and Yemen.
So Why is Syria so very important, in terms of world events & Prophecy?
1) It is the Headquarters for ISIS, the city of Raqqa is in northern Syria, population 220,000 and is controlled by ISIS.
2) Syria is the fountainhead for the refugee crisis…tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands will leave Syria for Europe; it has already sparked a massive migration of Muslims from other areas of the Middle East and Africa, and Afghanistan. Nearly 2 million Muslims will try to enter Europe in 2016—The implosion of Syria has destabilized all of the Middle East.
3) Syria is the hub of the Proxy war featuring Russia, Iran and Hezbollah against the United States and its allies including Saudi Arabia, Jordan—the Gulf States.
4) Syria is an enemy of Israel, and a friend of Iran and Russia.
5) Syria provides Russia with a base for its port of Tartous, which serves as Russia’s sole Mediterranean base for its Black Sea fleet.
6) Syria will be destroyed as outlined in prophecies in Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, and Amos 1.
7) Syria has become an enemy of Turkey—many of the Edomites of prophecy reside in Turkey–Turkey was one of the earliest countries to invest heavily in the overthrow of the Assad regime. Turkey wages war on the Syrian Kurds, Islamic State’s most successful opponents. Early on, Turkey wanted to support a Sunni majority government in Syria, run by the local branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
A prophecy in Jeremiah 49:23-33 is directed “against Damascus,” the capital of Syria representing the nation as a whole. Syria, north of the land of Israel, was often a hostile neighbor to ancient Israel and Judah, and today remains a hostile neighbor to the modern Jewish state of Israel.
Damascus, formerly “the city of praise” (verse 25), will be destroyed “in that day” (verse 26)—referring to the Day of the Lord. This is even more clearly seen in verse 27. Read Amos 1:3, we are told that Damascus will be punished for its many sins. Damascus will eventually be totally destroyed just before Christ returns (Isaiah 17:1). Does that mean Syria will be totally destroyed in the next year—NO! But that destruction will come when God determines it. The timing of that destruction is God’s prerogative.
Keep watching Syria!
