I was checking the reports I get from the Middle East, and I hit on this one about the European Union’s support of the Islamic Republic—IRAN.
It’s shocking. European leaders are making love to Iran.
EXAMPLE: Federica Mogherini who is, or was, (this report is dated 2/1/2019) busily traveling around the European continent acting as a lobbyist for the Islamic Republic—a lobbyist for the nation which is causing all the commotion right now-- that threatens the world economy.
But we all know the damage that Iran has incited across the Middle East and Europe ever since its revolution began in 1975.
We know about the Iranian proxies in the Middle East--Hizbollah, Hamas and the Houthis—all made up of Islamic terrorists.
We know that the Islamic Republic currently is holding a good number of EU citizens as hostage.
And….we know who the two arch-enemies of Iran are.
America is one of those arch-enemies. Why? Because America is free, because America has been strongly Christian, because America protects and assimilates the Jewish people, because America’s culture is becoming decadent (ouch!) and because America is the chief roadblock in their path of bringing on the caliphate and the Islamic messiah (the Mahdi).
Israel is the other arch-enemy of Iran. The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Khamenei, has called Israel a “cancerous tumor of a state that should be removed” and has stated that there was no cure for Israel but its annihilation.”
The cause of their hatred is complex. Israel’s ancient narrative clashes with that of the Muslims. Israel does not tolerate tyrannical government while Middle East Muslim nations are just that. The religion of Islam shows itself to be tyrannical in that the crime of converting to another religion is death.
In last week’s blog I pointed out how, in spite of American sanctions, Iran is working successfully in a long-term project of arming and sponsoring paramilitary formations to open up the long northern route from Iran through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon to the Mediterranean and Israel. Yes, the sanctions are hurting, but Iranian control is still expanding.

European Leaders Cozying Up
It is this nation, Iran, for which European leaders spend their energies to promote. In their way of thinking, Iran is poor and needs European assistance and understanding. And furthermore, their citizens are not Arabs but attractive Persians.
The Report from “Israel News Digest” by Amir Taheri says that “The EU’s spokesperson for foreign policy, Federica Mogherini, has devoted most of her immense energies operating as a lobbyist for the Islamic Republic of Iran. She has visited more than 30 countries to present the Islamic Republic as the poor little lamb facing the American big bad wolf.”
And another European leader, former German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel “praises the Islamic Republic as a rock of stability in the Mideast.” Unbelievable.
Emmanuel Macron, President of France, who wants to restore the former glory of the European community, has proposed offering a line of credit to Iran of 15 billion dollars (big deal) and the removal of sanctions. He is troubled by the fact that the export of French products to Iran has fallen by 42 per cent and…. French company factories are sitting idle there in Iran.
And this concerning Britain: Iran “controls at least a dozen tax-exempt ‘charities,’ often used for financing violent groups across the globe or simply for money laundering.” There you are--an English charity aiding in the effort to transform Britain and all of the EU into part of a great Muslim Caliphate.
Now, the bombing of Saudi Arabian oil facilities is giving the Europeans pause, and the European leaders are forced to call a “time out” on their Iran-coddling. But that is a temporary measure.

QUESTION: What is the mindset of the Europeans?
The European Union refused to place in their constitution anything referring to God.
The European Union thus is godless. The nearly empty churches and cathedrals still standing are a testimony to their empty souls of the European population.
Europe--predominately secular, largely dependent upon America for its defense, with low birthrates (to maintain their selfish pleasures), borrowing against tomorrow’s generations, its morality replaced with nothingness…and yet, opening its arms to Islam and the attendant Sharia law. How can this be?
MY CONCLUSION: The spirit of anti-Christ is active in Europe. Sound like an overstatement? More on this later, Lord willing.
MY PERSONAL FEELINGS: My heart goes out to the Europeans whose lives are lived according to the Pleasure Principle and whose souls, it seems, are pretty nearly empty.
I recently read the book The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray. For many people in Western Europe, the glories of reason and science were enough, they thought, to fill the vacuum left by their rejection of religion (Christianity). In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, “the nearest thing they had to a creed was a belief in ‘human progress.’” Another point: “Death and the fear of it fills the space that was once absorbed by the business of God.” There is the feeling that the world is complex, and we shouldn't waste our time and energy searching for answers.
Spiritual emptiness, moral weakness and political cynicism in Europe—this is the breeding ground for the toleration of the criminal activities of Iran.
Rise up, O Lord! Do not let mortals prevail
Let the nations be judged before you.
Put them in fear, O Lord,
Let the nations know that they are only human.
-- Psalms 9:20 (NRSV)
