..."The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end." - Book of the Prophet Daniel 9 : 26
Officially, the U.S. war in Afghanistan has become America's longest War !!! American soldiers have now been fighting Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in the harsh and extreme Afghanistan terrain for 16 long years !!! Although, to most Americans, the American military ( and our NATO allies*) may not enjoy having a very : clear, quick and tangible 'conventional victory' in the almost 'Failed State of Afghanistan' there is no question that the American military forces there have greatly 'denied and prevented' Islamic Terrorist groups from : planning, training & launching terrorists attacks on a global scale !!! Amazingly, the 'War against Islamic Terrorism' is now nearing two decades with 'NO' real end in sight; thus helping to make the Prophecy of Daniel 9 : 26 an ever present reality for these Last Days !!! The number one thing we have learned the 'hard way' is that Islamic Radicals are as 'hell bent' on attacking Western targets and Israel as much as 16 years ago !!! Islamic Jihadism is a Beast that quickly re-grows another head once the old one is chopped off; ISIS, Hezbollah and other Islamic Terrorist groups are ample evidence of this. Furthermore, the disproportionate high number of underemployed and unemployed Islamic young men from all over the Middle East together with a surge in social Apps and social networks guarantees that there are millions of young men eager to fill in and heed a perpetual Islamic Jihad. Ladies and Gentlemen 'ONLY' the endtimes 'Little Horn' will be able to defeat all the other Beasts; Liberal Western Politically Correct leaders have failed, 'NO' Western leader wants to: confront, label and attack Islamic Terrorists like the new NAZI's of this 21st Century ( what NAZI's and Islamic Terrorists have in common : both sought the destruction of the Jews and expansion by the sword/ machine gun as well as a dictatorial leader be it Hitler or an Iraninan Ayatollah ) !!! When the 'Little Horn' arises with all his 'full powers' you and I know that he only has 3 and a half years; yet in Revelation 13 :4, the world will already be asking; "Who is like the Beast and who is able to make war against him ?" Obviously, Mr. 'Little Horn' is 'NOT' going to wage war against Islamic Militants the same way it is being presently done !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy and Theology wishes that he could totally focus on the 'Streets of Gold' in the New Jerusalem 'BUT' our ever present reality is that we are still inhabiting 'Fallen Planet Earth' replete with numerous : incurable diseases, dictators, sexual perverts, corrupt politicians, Islamic Terrorists, Drug cartels and unscrupulous global bankers who see their fellow human beings as their rightful and deserving victims; it is no wonder why some people resort and succumb to depression and suicide everyday on planet earth; sometimes it all seems 'FUTILE', sometimes it all seems in vain 'BUT' those of us who have received the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT have millions+ of reasons to keep fighting the good fight !!! For "He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." - Book of Revelation 21 : 7
On September 11, 2001 some 19 mostly Saudi Arabian Islamic Terrorists / Hijackers managed to accomplish on American soil what 'NO' Russian army, soldier nor general managed to do during the 45 years that the Cold War lasted. It is estimated that the entire budget of Al Qaeda to finance those 19 Islamic hijackers was around $500,000 ( half a million dollars*) It is estimated ( and still growing $$$ figures ) that the entire : military, rebuilding, insurance and other costs directly related to 9 / 11 have surpassed : the total American costs of World War II !!! An estimated $ 6-12+ trillion and growing; when all figures and costs are considered !!! ( included are the war costs for Iraqi & Afghanistan war costs*) The most amazing thing about all of this is that some 16 years after 9 /11 American Military is still very much involved in Afghanistan as well as in other key regions of the Middle East 'TRYING' to somehow neutralize Islamic Jihadism !!! The 'War Against Islamic Jihadists' has now officially surpassed World War II as well as the Vietnam War in both time and $$$ costs; even if not yet it soon will !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy is 'NOT' here to demonize most Muslim's 'BUT' there is a very real 'Spiritual War' taking place for the souls of men as well as for the destiny of entire nations and this fact and reality is one that is 'NOT' being teached at most if not all Western Universities and Military Institutions !!! Any and all Military Western Personnel that ignores the 'Spiritual Dimension' of Islamic Terrorism is fooling themselves; Islam began violently and will end in a great violent act !!! I'm not going to lie to you; it's all going to end like what took place in Hiroshima & Nagasaki several decades ago; somehow this naive human being doesn't think that millions+ of Islamic young men are going to just forget all the warfare that has been taken place all over the Middle East and even though the U.S. is 'NOT' the one to blame; their religious leaders are going to keep pointing the finger at Western countries and the cycle of violence is unfortunately not going to end anytime soon just as Daniel 9 : 26 Prophesies !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy acknowledges that 'UNFORTUNATELY' there will be another 9 /11 styled terrorist attack 'BUT' not against America this time 'BUT' against some unsuspecting European target in the future. The research patterns and evidence that this student of 'historical patterns' has studied tells him that such an event is going to be one of several reasons that helps the 'Little Horn' to rise to power !!! This does not mean that Islamic Terrorists will employ similar tactics and attacks against Western targets; ( airplanes etc...) it means that they will use anything and everything that can cause the greatest amount of destruction on their limited budget. ( lately, they have been renting cars and trucks to perpetrate their terrorism across some European city; example : mowing civilians down with rented cars etc )
This student of Western Civilization and World History knows that many Europeans perceive the U.S. to be a 'War Mongering Nation' most Europeans ( but not all*) truly believe that if America stopped putting its 'nose into everyone's business' then we wouldn't be in the mess we are all in. Most European's sincerely and very 'NAIVELY' believe that if we just left Islamic Jihadists all alone there really would be world peace !!! The truth is evident in Islam's engagement against 'Little Israel.' Israel has served as a great buffer for Western Civilization; for the past half a century most Islamic countries have concentrated their national wrath, and national failures against a Jewish and non- Islamic Israel. Israel for many decades became the 'Scapegoat' of the national failures of the Iranian Ayatollah's and numerous other Islamic dictatorships that controlled their naive and mostly uneducated population not necessarily through the Mass Media like here in the West but in religious schools; in Islamic funded Madrassa's !!!
The reality before us is that Islamic Jihadist's are blowing up not only the few remaining Christian Temples that remain scattered throughout the Middle East but they are also blowing up Islamic Mosques all over the Middle East and are as well as killing other Muslim's who do 'NOT' share their extreme religious and political views for the region. If Islamic Jihadist's have 'NO' problem killing their own Muslim brothers and sisters what can't be expected ?
For many years and decades most European's sincerely believed that Islamic Terrorism was limited to the Middle east and especially against Israeli targets. When the T.V. footage began to slowly change from Israeli citizens being blown up in the streets of Jerusalem to the streets and the capitals of several European countries such as : London, England; Paris, France and Germany then the once naive European's began to wake up and consider the reality that Islamic Terrorism seeks to destroy not only Jewish targets but also any Western target that doesn't bow down to its diabolical endgame !!!
One would think that most European Intelligence Agencies are following in the footsteps of American Intelligence Agencies post 9/11 'BUT' most are not; it is no secret that Interpol as well as most German and French Intelligence Agencies do 'NOT' share intelligence with their very own national counterparts !!! Unfortunately, the European Intelligence Agencies are destined to learn the hard way !!! This student of counter intelligence understands that the European Intelligence Agencies were separated so that what the NAZI's pulled off in the past couldn't be repeated again 'BUT' the European's should go back to the 'drawing board' ( new revised laws*) to find a way to correctly force inter-agency intelligence cooperation so that Islamic Terrorists won't succeed in future Terrorist attacks on European soil !!!
The Prophetic ramnifications of the 'War Against Islamic Terrorism' is that most Western nations are now getting a first hand experience of what the State of Israel has been battling for decades : heartless suicidal Islamic terrorists !!! Most of the major European capitals have now suffered themselves Islamic Terrorist attacks too !!! The fact that our 'best and brightest' : American Think Tanks, Military Colleges and Military Theorists and even the RAND Corporation as well as the CATO Institute have 'NOT' been able to find a terminal solution to address Islamic Terrorism; tells this student of Bible Prophecy that this one of the endtimes challenges that will help to propel the endtimes Little Horn to power in the not too distant future !!!
It is the very 'INSIGNIFICANT' opinion of this student of Bible Prophecy that the United States made a few military mistakes in fighting the war against radical Muslims in Afghanistan and elsewhere in that region of the world. It is 'NO' secret that too many times the American military was prosecuting a war with 'One Hand Tied' around its back; this student of Warfare Theory is all for civilian control of the arm forces lest we produce a 'Military Junta' like in : Argentina, Egypt and other places. 'BUT' at the same time you should never allow the enemy to even remotely come close to believing that they have a chance against you !!!
While the U.S. almost 'militarized' most of the U.S. Airports and its land borders shortly after 9 /11 the European Union has most certainly 'NOT' !!! To some degree this student of Bible Prophecy can 'NOT' understand how the European Union did 'NOT' closed nor militarized its borders years ago !!! It is 'NO' secret that too many of the southern Mediterranean EU borders are too porous; North African 'refugee boats' of all shapes and sizes seem to be able to land on : French, Spanish, Italian and Greek soil without ever being detected by the European Border and Coast Guard Agency also known as 'Frontex' !!! What is to stop an Islamic Terrorist group of introducing a dirty nuclear device into European soil ?
While Islam is 'NOT' destined nor Prophesied to conquer the world; Islamic Terrorism in all its forms are going to make it perfectly possible for the endtimes future 'Little Horn' to declare 'Martial Law' throughout Europe in the future and to consolidate political and military power as 'NO' other European leader has in all of Western History !!! In effect, Islamic Terrorism is going to make the career of the endtimes EU Totalitarian possible !!!
Although, the U.S. & the Russian military as well as Israeli military and their intelligence agencies have been able to 'Mortally Neutralize' many key Islamic Terrorist Leaders like Osama Bin Laden and others; there seems to be many other 'Islamic Alpha Males' more than willing to step into their shoes all over the Middle East !!!
Unfortunately, the U.S. Military will "NOT' be able to put an end to Islamic Terrorism as it has 'FAILED' to do so for over 16 years now since 9 / 11. It is the interpretation of this student of Bible Prophecy that the endtimes 'Little Horn' is going to 'THRIVE' at eliminating Islamic Terrorism both on European soil as well as against several Islamic nations in the not too distant future. American General's do know how to defeat Islamic Terrorism 'BUT' Western political leaders who control the military are more concerned about waging a 'Politically Correct War' than about finalizing this threat forever !!!
( UN, AL,EU,AU etc...) have all 'FAILED' to properly and adequately address and confront Islamic Terrorism for all these years. The United Nations, the Arab League, the European Union, the African Union as well several other International organizations have proven that 'DIPLOMACY' will not work against the growing Islamic Jihad Network that seems to keep spreading like wildfire via international social networks !!! This human being wishes that everybody would just leave Israel and its Jewish population alone 'BUT' you and I know that according to Bible Prophecy that is 'NOT' even remotely possible !!!
This 'Semi-Expert' on the European Union and student of Bible Prophecy 'KNOWS' that the future European Union will 'Militarize' its borders and become like a totalitarian state during the Tribulation period !!! In the past, Europe and Islamic armies battled each other and very truly the Last Crusade has 'YET' to be fought !!! Eventually, the naive and liberal democratic leaders of most European nations will be voted out and kicked out of office; what is coming against several European nations and capitals is going to 'Force and Pull' the future European Armies into the Middle East as it is Prophesied and as the Roman Legions once did during the height of the Roman Empire !!! It gives this student of Bible Prophecy 'NO' pleasure to focus and write upon this REALITY 'BUT' because it is affecting ( Islamic Terrorism*) more and more nations it is a subject that should and must be addressed with the TRUTH and not with naive 'Political Correctness' !!!
EUinProphecy.com , considers : International Mafias, Drug Cartels, Sexual Deviants, Dictators and numerous others to be as EVIL and outright WICKED as Islamic Terrorists 'BUT' because Islamic Terrorists would have absolutely 'NO' problem blowing up a nuclear device upon a Western target ( if they had the chance and one nuclear bomb*) they are presently thee most dangerous international group on planet earth 'Hands Down' !!!
Disclaimer : Sometimes EUinProphecy.com will focus on Bible Prophecy articles that to some visitors may seem a bit too strong or too controversial. The truth of the matter is that we are merely 'Interpreting' the Biblical Prophecies; according to the Book of Revelation over 60%+ of the world's population will perish during the Tribulation period !!! This student of Bible Prophecy understands how some of us who live in 'Safe & Developed' Western countries naively believe that what is happening elsewhere in the world will never reach our front door, the truth is that GOD is going to test the whole world during the Tribulation period. GOD loves all of His creation 'BUT' He will 'NOT' allow : sin, rebellion and outright disobedience to prosper forever. The Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation were written well before you and I were born, GOD knows the future and this unworthy servant of GOD is merely interpreting the Biblical Prophecies which I personally heed and believe that will be fulfilled in our lifetime !!! Additionally, there are millions of people who erroneously have come to believe that everything is a giant 'CONSPIRACY' perpetrated by : the American Military, the CIA and the American Military Industrial Complex against Islamic countries. The truth is that we were all born in the middle of an ongoing 'Spiritual War' between very powerful and influential 'Fallen Angels' & Holy Angels still loyal to GOD Almighty and they do use : Kings, Queens, Empires, Armies, Corporations and numerous others unholy entities to do their bidding; and that is why we as believers MUST be full of the HOLY SPIRIT and put on the Full Armour of GOD Almighty !!! ( Ephesians 6 : 11 )
By : Mario Romano. This student of World History and Bible Prophecy is 'NOT' advocating ethnic cleansing nor is this servant of Jesus Christ a warmonger. The blunt truth is that ISIS was ethnically cleansing Syria and Iraq of Christians for several months & nobody did much about it including former President Obama & the UN !!! The truth of the matter is that Islamic militants have made it 'NO' secret that their ultimate goal is a world wide Shariah Planet. Obviously, according to Bible Prophecy that is 'NEVER' going to happen 'BUT' because of their continued Islamic Terrorist attacks, the Western nations are more and more transforming themselves into a big brother 'Police State.' Thus making it possible and much more easier for the endtimes 'Little Horn' to accomplish what the Prophecies of the Book of Daniel and Revelation 'GUARANTEE' will take place during the 7 year Tribulation period and if you didn't know Islam does 'NOT' get to conquer the world 'UNFORTUNATELY' another Western ruthless Totalitarian will get to fulfill that endtimes role and you better believe that EUinProphecy.com is working on correctly interpreting those key endtime Prophecies !
