Perhaps the Time is Here to Identify All of Islamic State

 

President Trump has claimed that the Islamic State has been defeated simply because they have been successfully pushed from Syria and Iraq. Pushing something to relocate to a different hot-spot is not eliminating it. To eliminate the Islamic State, President Trump is going to have to go to places he prefers to ignore or it will come back to bite him in the future. The Islamic State is exactly what one might think about their losses in Syria and Iraq, madder than all get up, we thought better than saying the wording which first came to mind. But they have not been defeated and just like other terror groups which were claimed to be defeated but simply relocated, Islamic State is still a viable threat. The bad news for President Trump is that the Islamic State he claims to have defeated has relocated many of their resources and leading people to the Sinai Peninsula where they are a threat to the Egyptian government as well as to Israel. The good news for Israel is that having the Islamic State in the Sinai threatening Egypt has caused Egypt to close their border with Gaza making arming Hamas more difficult for those wishing to press that front against Israel. Egyptian President Sisi would be wise to ask President Trump to aid Egypt in ridding the Sinai of the Islamic State menace along with numerous other criminal and terrorist entities.

 

But we want to talk about the forgotten from which belongs to the Islamic State but has been conveniently dismissed as unimportant by the developed world including President Trump. The loss of four Americans in Niger, four Green Berets Special Forces, in an ambush by Islamist terrorists, Boko Haram terrorists, is sad and some have asked why United States forces are in Niger. We ask the opposite question posing why there are but eight-hundred troops stationed there largely as advisors and training officers. All told, six-thousand United States military personnel are deployed in Africa where the majority works on construction projects and in supporting the aerial drone surveillance operations. Why is there not a more substantial support in Niger as the United States had in Syria and Iraq against Islamic State? Perhaps we need refresh memories with two small items. First, Boko Haram swore their allegiance to Islamic State over two year ago in early 2015. President Trump promised to defeat the Islamic State wherever they existed and did not claim only in Syria and Iraq. But maybe President Trump meant he only wanted to destroy the Islamic State where the media was covering the fight as he wished for glory, not results. Islamic State terror must be fought wherever it takes root and everywhere it takes root or that weed has not been pulled. Islamic State is Boko Haram and Boko Haram is Islamic State, the two are wed in ideology and their desire to take their destructive ideology and spread it over the entirety of our planet. This is the reason that they must be eradicated from every corner they have infested, and that includes across the entirety of the continent of Africa.

 

African Transition Zone

African Transition Zone

 

To make things easier for President Trump, please allow us to present the above map of the region known as the African Transition Zone where Africa is divided between the areas controlled by Islam and the Christian, Animist and other religious beliefs. North of the zone is Islamic and south is not and the terrorists operating along the entire region intend to push the dotted boundary of Islam ever southward until stopped. Maybe Africa does not have the attention of the Middle East, but it is no less important in this battle for world dominance between Islam and everybody else. This is not the great battle between Communism and Democratic freedom, this is the great battle between Islam and freedom of religion or even freedom from religion if you happen to be a post-modernist European leftist who believes that religion is the opiate of the masses. Trust that Islam will devour your socialist religion free society and force everyone to bow to Allah just as fast as they would a Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Shinto or other religious nations. The Islamists do not care what religion or lack of religion you worship or refuse to worship, they only care that you do not believe the religion that they hold to and they are willing to kill everybody who refuses to follow Islam if that is what it takes to make the world follow Islam and only Islam. Don’t even think for a moment that you have nothing to fear about the message Islam presents just because you are an Atheist, because the reality is you have the most to fear as they consider Atheists to be idolaters. And yes the continent of Africa is worth saving just as Europe is worth fighting to keep free, Asia is worth retaining as free, and the Americas are worth fighting to keep free and Israel is worth defending despite or because it is in the center of the maelstrom. The fight against Islam, or at least to reform Islam, is the most imperative and important struggle the world faces and the entire world faces this whether they wish to admit such or not.

 

Currently there are forces who believe they can bait the tiger and come away unscathed because the tiger is devouring others. This is foolish thinking and will only serve to allow the tiger to feast unmolested for so long. Eventually the tiger will desire feasting on something new and that might be when the tiger turns on those befriending it today, as that is what tigers do, they eat by preying on others. Perhaps the tiger is not the best animal to use in the analogy for Islam. Islam is more like locusts or army ants devouring everything in their path and when they finish one area then continue on to the next area. Then, from time to time they cease, and appear to go into hibernation until the wind picks up in just the right direction or the urge to move the next strikes and they fly or march on to new grazing grounds and eat everything in their path along the way. They marched across the Middle East into India and across Northern Africa and into eastern and western Europe between 622A.D. and 750A.D. (see map below) before resting. They then resumed their expansion as the Ottoman Empire before being pushed back and then presumably defeated during World War I. This was a very temporary defeat as we are witnessing today.

 

Expansion of Islam Across MENA and into Europe before Ottoman Rule

Expansion of Islam Across MENA and into Europe before Ottoman Rule

 

The victors in World War I colonized the areas where the Arabs and Muslims had conquered with the exception of Iran, Turkey, Albania and a few other places. The only places where Islam has been pushed from largely are Spain (Andalusia) and India though Muslims still live in both nations. Israel is the other place where Islam lost their control but that has been fraught with continuous attempts to rectify the situation; one might say, with the Israelis proving quite a bit stubborn about holding on to their lands, something they had been thousands of years prior as well. Islam slept for close to a thousand years and is once again waking and becoming resurgent. Should this be permitted to continue without some modifications allowing other religions and even no religion to coexist with Islam, then people had best ready their prayer rugs and be prepared to pray facing Mecca five times every day. There currently is no compromise once Islam takes control of an area. There are records of places where Islam permitted non-Muslims to reside as Dhimmi, a form of second-class personage, for as long as they served Islam and remembered their inferiority. Even with good behavior, eventually the Muslims reach a point where they demand everyone convert to Islam or be put to the sword, or of late a knife. This is a reality which the entire world could face should the non-Islamic powers not wake and realize the peril they are actually facing. History is a brutal teacher but as in the West history is not a subject much studied any longer, perhaps those who have studied history might refresh everybody’s memory and grab a few leaders’ attentions. For our American friends, allow us to give them two wars they might wish to study, the First and Second Barbary Wars. The Barbary Pirates were Islamic terrorists of their day and that is the most revealing way to describe them. You see, the United States has been fighting Islamic terrorism since day one. That is a truth and the American people would be well advised to realize what they are facing before it becomes too late.

The Façade is Failing

 

The Arab Islamic supremacist offensive using the Palestinian Arab population ruled out of Gaza City and Ramallah is faltering and sputtering towards its ending. There is spiraling violence which is whipped up periodically often using the Temple Mount and Jerusalem and the apparent Judaizing it might face should Israel decides to actually carry through with the Zionist demands for building the Third Temple. The Third Temple need not transplant or replace anything already sitting upon the Temple Mount as room exists for quite a large and expansive building to be added. There need not be any destructive efforts and instead a sharing of the holy expanse which is holy to three religions without any one religion attempting dominance over the other two (see images below). The pretense that the Jews have no claim or history to the Temple Mount and that the structures found there were all built by Islamic rulers since the seventh or eighth century because history began with the onset of Islam and anything which preceded has no relative justification is just that, a pretense. This is one of the reasons that Islamic holy structures are often built upon the sights of other religious buildings or even are former religious structures which were transformed into Islamic holy sites such as the Hagia Sophia which was originally built in Constantinople and when the city was renamed Istanbul the Hagia Sophia became a Mosque (see image below). The Hagia Sophia had extensive mosaics which were either torn out or, fortunately, most were simply plastered over. The Hagia Sophia had some of the mosaics restored as it has served recently as a museum for both its Christian as well as its Islamic history. How long the Turkish rulers and the Islamic world decide to allow the current use to continue is open to debate as President Erdoğan appears to be attempting to return to Turkeys Ottoman past. This trending in Turkey and across the Islamic world may be coming to a critical point where the world could turn on a single incident or a brief series of events. It is this apparent coming focal point which may have determining ramifications into the future similar to the fall of the Ottoman and the Austria-Hungarian Empires during World War I which came on the heels of the fall of the Tzars in Russia making for an entirely new face to the world or the turn after the fall of Rome and Carthage which had ruled the Mediterranean Sea between them for a thousand years followed by the rise of the Islamic forces streaming across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and into the fringes of the eastern and western edges of Europe. What the world will look at in another decade or two may be entirely different than it does today. The entire world is hanging in wait for the other shoe to fall and one can choose whatever terror attack they please as the first shoe that fell. Where will that shoe strike the Earth?

For a hint at where that shoe will target our lovely little rock floating in orbit around an average yellow star between two arms of the Milky Way was hinted at by the reaction to new United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres little miscue of acceptable protocols in our overly sensitive world where some believe they own all the rights to history and only their history is permitted to be used. Palestinian Authority (PA) Jerusalem Affairs Minister Adnan al-Husseini demanded an apology last month from United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres because of his statement that it was “completely clear that the Temple that the Romans destroyed in Jerusalem was a Jewish temple.” The statement according to Adnan al-Husseini had “violated all legal, diplomatic and humanitarian customs and overstepped his role as secretary general.” Apparently stating that there was history before the Arabs and Islam arrived in Jerusalem and that the Romans had ever been in Jerusalem or destroyed a temple there, let alone The Temple, and especially the Second Temple of the Jews was unacceptable. Inferring that the Jews have any history in Jerusalem, especially that the Jews had constructed two Temples in Jerusalem and that the Temple Mount was not built by the great Islamic conquerors of Jerusalem offends Islamic sensitivities. Such commentary must be nipped in the bud as if the truth were to be heard then perhaps the Europeans might realize that the Jews really did have a history in Jerusalem and stop supporting the Palestinian Arabs and their criminal terrorism committed against the Jews and intended to destroy Israel in steps using both terror and politics. Islam is terrified that Israel might actually be permitted to realize their rightful and promised homelands and gain full dominion over Judea and Samaria, the historic Jewish heartlands where the Prophets strode, the Judges ruled and Kings David and Solomon Ruled and where Solomon built his Temple to Hashem in the center of Jerusalem. Having the Jews be recognized and permitted their promised homeland is treated as if it would be a dagger into the heart of Islam, a mortal wound to their Muslim sensitivities from which they might never recover.

 

The reaction to the United Nations Secretary General’s accurate recognition of historical fact has identified the exact center of the coming maelstrom, the location of the eye of the coming storm. The coming storm will be triggered in Jerusalem but will sweep across the world soon thereafter never returning full force to Jerusalem as that battle will have been lost. The incitement to terror over the Temple Mount is but one small faction on which the violence is centered. There is also the fuming anger over the promise by President Trump during the campaign that he will move the American Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and, as if that was not sufficient, also stated he planned to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital City. President Trump did walk that recognition comment back to meaning only West Jerusalem but that was not sufficient of a mea-culpa for the PA leadership who continued using the comments as fuel for violence. Many Imams in Mosques across Jerusalem and the PA ruled areas incited violence as a reaction to the horrific assault on Islamic superiority and ascension over Jerusalem and directed it be targeted on Israelis. One individual took these sermons to heart and used his truck to murder four Israelis while running the vehicle through a crowd of Israeli cadets disembarking a bus in Jerusalem. Mahmoud Abbas welcomed the actions of this Palestinian Arab hero and promised his widow 2,900 shekels per month for life, in accordance with Palestinian Authority Law. But just ask Mahmoud Abbas and in English he will gladly inform you that he is taking every opportunity and possible avenue to end all incitement and terrorism in the areas under his control. His statements proving this insistence that all terrorism and attacks must stop and were not of his or the PA leadership’s making can be seen below. Of course this was not the fault of the PA leadership, it was the Imams in the Mosques following through on their marching orders which came from the PA leadership, but they just discussed theoretical ideas with the Imams, no actually requesting they go through with such instigations with their sermons using the intent of President Trump to move the embassy or the fact that Jews were presumably going to flatten the entire top of the Temple Mount and build their Temple or that the Jews were seen making plans to hold Satanic Rituals in the al-Aqsa Mosque. Nothing of this kind has currently or previously been used to instigate violence against the Jews specifically and Israelis in general. That is what the video below will inform you as will these records of statements translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

 

 

Israel will be the center and the reason given for the coming storm. Europe and North America as well as potentially India and Central Africa will bear the brunt of the storm which will slowly escalate. The United States has already been set as a target for terror due to the insults and threats which allegedly came from President Trump as he is seen to be fully backing Israel in all items and his call for moving the embassy is being taken far more seriously than the same promise made by Presidents since Reagan. This time they are sure it is for real, may that be true. What will further hasten these events is the fact that the majority of Israelis have reached the end of their patience and their government has begun to realize the impatience which has grown. The Israeli Zionist core has had it with destroying Jewish homes while allowing all other illegal construction to be largely ignored. Even Jewish homes and communities built with government approval and having all the necessary paperwork have been assaulted by the Supreme Court on the flimsiest of evidence and even without any evidence as they appear to believe if it was filed, then the Jews must be at fault. This is the result of a leftist court working with a leftist minority flying completely out of control. This will lead to a confrontation in Israel and the makings have presented themselves with the recent law passed to place Israeli rule over Area C and the settlements, all the settlements giving them legality and certify them against further leftist actions. The Attorney General and Supreme Court will undoubtedly be petitioned by a selection of leftist groups over this law and should they attempt to claim the law unconstitutional it may well ignite a final conflict between the Zionists and the Post-Zionist left. The first point is that Israel has no Constitution thus nothing can be unconstitutional and the current law is not in violation of any of the basic laws. Should the Supreme Court and Attorney General take actions against the law, the next logical step would be to pass a new version which is even more strident by granting recognition to all future homes, communities, business districts and any other Israeli building throughout Area C which is under full Israeli civil and security governance under the Oslo Accords and make this new law part of the Basic Laws thus securing it from leftist assaults. Once Israel has completed the coming debate and all building in Areas C is made legal and permanent, the debate with the Arab Palestinians will take on a whole new tact.

 

The expected result will likely be open incitement and full on assault against all Israel. This will not last very long and the solution of returning the Arab Palestinians into Jordan and the backing of a group in Jordan known as the Jordan Opposition Coalition (JOC) (الائتلاف الاردني للمعارضة). For this and other information please read our recent article with more links titled Israel’s Worst Enemy is Israel which entreats the idea which is supported by the JOC that Jordan was the Arab State and west of the Jordan was Israel as the Jewish State and the two were to be separate yet allied working for mutual advantages. Should Israel manage to also bring President Donald Trump on board with the idea and with his assistance along with Egypt and Saudi Arabia to manage to pressure King Hussein of Jordan to become a titular head and no longer have the power he currently wields but maintaining his privilege, this would allow the Arab Palestinians to finally rule the nation in which they carry a near 80% majority. The British placed the Hashemites over the Arab Palestinian majority and that has remained the system with the King using the Bedouins as his enforcers against the Arab Palestinians. Bringing this to an end and granting the Arab Palestinians the rule in what was to be their actual country, then they can be relocated from Israel just as almost one million Jews were relocated from the Arab world into Israel between 1948 through 1959. There will be screams that this is unprecedented which is a bald faced lie. There was a far larger migration between India and Pakistan with much greater violence. There was a similar migration of Germans from Polish lands taken after World War I as well as Germans from areas taken by France at the end of World War I. The migration of populations in the making of nations after conflicts has a long history of forced migrations. This would not be setting any precedence at all. The leadership of the PA would need to be granted asylum somewhere allowing them to live out their lives in comfort with their billions in stolen funds collected over the years.

 

After such an agreement despite it likely being accepted by the Arab Palestinians who would receive ample financial incentives or could remain as legal alien Jordanian citizens residing within Israel as long as they remain law abiding, the rest of the Islamic world, primarily Iran, could react using increased violence through largely terrorism. The world will find a means of adjusting and eventually find a means of preventing much of the intended violence. The problems could begin once Iran has a sizeable nuclear arsenal and the means for delivering these weapons. This will unfortunately become reality within the next decade to decade and a half. Then the Iranians will be capable of fomenting as much terrorism as they desire using Syria, Lebanon and Iraq as bases in addition to their own training camps run by the IRGC specialists. Iran also has allies they have cultivated in South America including the Tri-Border Region in an area where Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina meet but none of the nations bother to enforce much law. Hezballah along with the IRGC run training and are prepared to marshal terror operations through Mexico and into the United States (see map below). The region is replete with two airfields and a series of towns around which the terror infrastructure is based. In addition there is ample dense jungle in the area into which any hunted groups could melt and appear across one of the borders with ease. Perhaps it is the difficulty of organizing a combined strike which prevents any real enforcement.

Whatever becomes the spark, the world is spiraling towards chaos. The problems in the Middle East have already started to spread to Europe, especially to France, Britain and Germany. These problems will become exacerbated by the interconnectedness of the European Union. Once the Islamic forces have gained citizenship there will be no preventing their free travel throughout Europe and the spread of their Islamist agenda. The escalation is evident and will only continue to grow. The Europeans will join the leftists in the United States in laying all the blame on the Administration of United States President Donald Trump. This will simply be a false way of bringing additional pressure as the left attempts by any means to drive the Republicans from power. Should they succeed at this endeavor then the last best hope for Western Civilization will probably die. The left’s only answer to the pressures of Islam is to surrender and blame their enemies and Islamophobia. All one need do is witness how after every terror attack the first step is deny it was terror and when that fails then press the Islamophobia button and demand that everybody not over-react, which means blaming the terrorist. We are to love the terrorist but hate our own history. This is going to work out so well. At least Israel is awake, will the United States remain conscious or will they fall back to sleep. There is quite a lot riding on the answer to that question.

The European Union Actually Planning Empire

 

It turns out that there is actual evidence issued in European Union (EU) documents spelling out their designs to extend their domain and control over the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on to Central Asia and Middle of the African Continent. These plans existed before the British voted to depart the EU with their Brexit referendum. Still, the EU will likely attempt to exercise this extending of the areas wrapped up in their web of dictatorial control and this may be part of the plan with the admitting of the refugees from MENA areas as their plans would incorporate much of the Muslim and Arab worlds in their extended governance. The actual released plans are in a PDF format titled Shared Vision, Common Action: A Stronger Europe A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy. The “European Union Global Strategy Executive Summary” begins as follows:


We need a stronger Europe. This is what our citizens deserve, this is what the wider world expects.
We live in times of existential crisis, within and beyond the European Union. Our Union is under threat. Our European project, which has brought unprecedented peace, prosperity and democracy, is being questioned. To the east, the European security order has been violated, while terrorism and violence plague North Africa and the Middle East, as well as Europe itself. Economic growth is yet to outpace demography in parts of Africa, security tensions in Asia are mounting, while climate change causes further disruption. Yet these are also times of extraordinary opportunity. Global growth, mobility, and technological progress – alongside our deepening partnerships – enable us to thrive, and allow ever more people to escape poverty and live longer and freer lives. We will navigate this difficult, more connected, contested and complex world guided by our shared interests, principles and priorities. Grounded in the values enshrined in the Treaties and building on our many strengths and historic achievements, we will stand united in building a stronger Union, playing its collective role in the world.

 

The wordy introductory summary continues for three more pages of droning boredom which one can read at the link above followed by approximately fifty or so more pages. The one thing which is made evident is that the European Union, a.k.a. Germany and Herr Merkel are looking at the first step to world conquest by absorbing the Middle East and the oil fields and Northern and Central Africa because that is as far as Germany got the last time they tried a somewhat more violent conquest of the world. This time they are taking, as we noted the other day, an economic conquest by simply out producing the other member states such that the Euro reflects German output thus making every other nation relying on German largess to remain financially solvent. This has been made excessively evidenced by the recent years as Greece would have starved and not been capable of even fueling their police vehicles without German ‘loans’ which came with demands for altering the societal work ethic and other actions by government and population to suit demands and desires of the German government. Greece proved more stubborn than expected but the Germans did accomplish impressing the idea that without the favors from Germany the Greek society would have collapsed and thus they owed Germany their warmest and most earnest gratitude, but the Greeks drew the line short of obedience. Still, it is evident not only in Greece but Italy, Spain and, to a lesser extent, France all are left looking at German economic output and work ethic and realize that as goes Germany, so goes the European Union.

 

The main sticking point at the moment is that should petroleum prices rise the EU economy would slow creating problems even for Germany. Further, raw materials are another essential requirement for the EU economic engines and assuring these will continue without interruptions or financial instability driving the EU economies accordingly. Should the EU expand their influence and control such that the Middle East oil and the raw materials found in Central Africa then the EU would become pretty much completely self-reliant and finally be capable of production controlling everything from top to bottom making everything flow without problems, price difficulties or any slowdowns to their economy due to lack of control over needed supplies of petroleum and raw materials as these would now be under EU control and Germany would have their production assured by which they could continue further expansion of the EU until they become that one world governance which has been so elusive.

 

Their documents themselves refer to global strategies. It claims so right in the title where it states theirs is a “Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy” and nothing less. Their contents list as below:
A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy: “Shared Vision, Common Action:
A Stronger Europe”

 

1. A Global Strategy to Promote our Citizens’ Interests
2. The Principles Guiding our External Action
3. The Priorities of our External Action
3.1 The Security of Our Union
3.2 State and Societal Resilience to our East and South
3.3 An Integrated Approach to Conflicts and Crises
3.4 Cooperative Regional Orders
3.5 Global Governance for the 21st Century
4. From Vision to Action

 

It is easy to see that theirs is an ambitious project and they are looking to expand their influence and they are willing to take any necessary steps and have already decided that they are to be the main world power and to slowly but inexorably swallow area after area starting with the petroleum supplies of the Middle East and the mines of central Africa and are willing to take on the nations of the Sahara Regions in order to spread into Central Africa and the access to raw materials such as iron and bauxite mines.

Add to this the resources, especially petroleum in the Middle East and Central Asia and one can see why the EU and Germany desire expanding their influence and control over these areas. This one simplistic map tells the story better than we could with a thousand words.

 

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

Petroleum Supply to Matching Petroleum Demands

 

There really is not much one can add to what the EU released when their document became public, and we thank this revelation for putting to rest what the real intentions for their future and the future of the world the back room boys of the EU have in mind. Their delusions of grandeur and expectation to slowly expand their region of influence until they hold sufficient sway over production, raw materials and petroleum reserves that they will hold the controlling influence over virtually all manner of production and world economic health and indicators. Their claim that their intentions are for a global influence if not outright control is made amply evident but raises some serious questions. The first and most obvious question that comes to mind is exactly how does the EU plan on expending their control over these areas? We have some doubts as to the likelihood that these areas nations would be all that open to simply being subsumed by the EU no matter how generous the initial offers. We can be fairly assured that some nations such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey and Jordan would not be all that open to joining the EU and kowtowing to Germany’s heavy-handed running roughshod over other nations as they have with the less productive nations and even other near equals such as France and Britain, possibly one of the reasons that the British people felt the need to break with the EU, expecting other nations to pick up whatever slack these economies had as compared to the high productivity of the German heavy productivity. This pressure is less obvious for those nations outside the EU and have not received much coverage, but with Brexit the realities may slowly come to the fore and be revealed even faster should the EU, instead of executing expansion into new territories, begin losing member nations as others decide to head for the exits and try controlling their own borders, trade and currencies instead of being dictated from Brussels which sits more in service to Germany than anything else.

 

Then again, as most of the EU nations have abandoned their own currencies and have been using solely the Euro that the cost and burden of returning to their own currencies, as we have noted previously, would prove problematic and possibly so burdensome as to be prohibitive. The EU may be saved by a combination of prohibitive costs and challenges for individual nations returning to independence from the EU and inertia which would have leaders rather continue with what is already in place than challenge the independence from the EU which could be fraught with unforeseen challenges. Time will tell but the reasoning for why the EU desires to add these additional regions and the raw materials and petroleum reserves would be tempting under any circumstance. As for the feasibility, we would estimate they are somewhere around nil as the nations outside the EU, especially the Islamic nations, are not at all likely to take kindly to any pressures or attempts to compromise their independence by the EU which they already view as a colonialist aggressor. The funny reality is that Islam and the Arabs themselves have a far greater history of colonialism and their colonial pursuits are alive and well today across the MENA nations other than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States which were the original Arab lands historically until the expansive thrusts which came soon after the advent of Islam and the Medina Quranic directives which spawned that expansive colonial expansion which they still retain to this day. Nobody can predict the future with any assurance of knowledge or prophesy but we will stand for now by our predictions that the EU should be more concerned with their own house before attempting to add additions to that home. Isn’t it just wonderful to live in interesting times just as a Chinese curse threatens?
