This Week in the News

We begin reporting on the ongoing innumerous and ever-increasing difficulties and problems which the Obama administration is facing. The quoted articles warn that the very fabric of our society is being undermined and a real fear is lurking that our democratic principles and institutions are being abandoned.

While the Arabs are deeply divided and even sporting events such as the current World Cup in South Africa do not change this, but rather intensify the hostilities, they are united in their hatred against Israel. At the same time, the relationship between Israel and Europe, especially Germany, is deteriorating, and even Israel’s announcement, bowing to international and US pressure, that they will ease the Gaza blockade, may not change Israel’s isolation. The concept, propagated by some based on their misunderstanding of Scripture, claiming that Germany would enter into a seven-year treaty with Israel, which would be broken after 3 1/2 years, must be rejected as unsupportable in the Bible.

An interesting proposal of a “two-tier” euro system is currently being discussed, which could have much more merit than the unrealistic suggestions that the euro would be abandoned. The new proposal envisions the creation of a “‘super-euro’ zone, which would initially include France, Germany, Holland, Austria, Denmark and Finland. The likes of Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal and even Ireland would be left in a larger rump mostly Mediterranean grouping.” Of course, we can safely say, based on the Bible and history, that if such a “two-tier” euro system was to be adopted, countries like Italy and Spain would become part of the “euro-super” zone.

In addition, the relationship between the USA and Europe is constantly deteriorating.

For more information as to what is in store for Europe, please read our free booklets, “Europe in Prophecy” and “The Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord.” You might also want to read our free comprehensive commentary on the book of Revelation, titled, “Is That in the Bible?–The Mysteries of the Book of Revelation.”

We also report about the future of Poland. Last Sunday’s election was “closer than expected,” and the “July 4 runoff between the two [candidates] looks likely to be a neck-and-neck race.” German commentaries point out that nothing less than Poland’s political and economic survival is at stake.

We conclude with two articles describing the ongoing battle of the Catholic Church, questioning the willingness of the Pope and the clergy to really do anything productive about the sex scandal or regarding “aberrant” priests.
