Breitbart: “ROME, Italy — As the Islamic State gains strength in Libya and threatens to overrun Italy with immigrants, Italy finds itself exposed with no way to handle the onslaught.

Italian Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti has said that the Libya situation is “out of control.”

Though Pinotti said that Italy is prepared to defend its seas, she also declared that “Italy cannot be alone to bear the costs of these operations that affect all of Europe.” She believes that once masses of people leave Libya, the problem becomes far more serious.

“The real issue is how to prevent people from leaving,” she said.”

Opinion: Even though I do this all day, and even though I made fun of it yesterday, the idea that ISIS is threatening Italy is stunning.

We first heard of ISIS last June 14. We were told it was absolutely nothing to worry about, a junior varsity of al Qaeda, at best.

Italy?

The Daily Beast: “Last weekend in Italy, as the threat of ISIS in Libya hit home with a new video addressed to “the nation signed with the blood of the cross” and the warning, “we are south of Rome,” Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi shuttered up the Italian embassy in Tripoli and raised his fist with the threat of impending military action.

Never mind that Italy has only 5,000 troops available that are even close to deployable, according to the defense ministry. Or that the military budget was cut by 40 percent two years ago, which has kept the acquisition of 90 F-35 fighter jets hanging in the balance and left the country combat-challenged to lead any mission—especially one against an enemy like the Islamic State.”

II2Opinion: Traveling from Libya to Italy is 1 hour and 29 minutes as the crow flies. Since Italy is bankrupt with unsustainable debt, it is safe to say that the 5000 troops are not battle-ready and a good bet that, if and when confronted by ISIS terrorists, they will drop their uniforms and run like the devil himself is after them – in the same way that Iraqi soldiers have and probably continue to do.

That’s not racism, I am Italian-American.

Nature abhors a vacuum. Therefore, while President Obama continues this deadly game of not identifying the most virulent enemy Western civilization has experienced since the 7th century, expect that if Italy or any EU state is invaded by ISIS, a strong-man leader will emerge in Europe reminiscent of Adolf Hitler of WWII.

But this one will make Adolf look like a choir boy, Revelation 13:16-17.

Daily Mail UK: “Shocking hidden camera footage shows journalist wearing a skullcap being spat at, called a ‘dog’ and threatened as he walks the streets

  • Zvika Klein, from Jewish news outlet NRG, silently walked for ten hours
  • The NRG reporter wore a kippah on his head and a tzitzit (ritual tassels)
  • Clip shows antisemitism is rife in city as he is intimidated and even spat at
    • Comes as Israeli Prime Minister says Europe is no longer safe for Jews

Opinion: Like World War II and the Holocaust never even happened.

Anti-Semitism in Europe has roots in the third century teaching of the early Church. Replacement Theology began in the under St. John Chrysostom (347-407 AD), Jerome (347-420) and Augustine, in his work, City of God (354-430 AD).

John Chrysostom was the Patriarch of Constantinople, yet he described the synagogue as a “place of meetings for the ‘assassins of Christ … a den of thieves; a house of ill fame, a dwelling of iniquity, a refuge of devils, a gulf and abyss of perdition.’”

Later, Augustine theorized that the church had replaced Israel in God’s plan, and that the prophecy of the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth and the redemption of the Jews as the chosen people was “inferior” and “carnal.” Augustine adopted the position that the reign of Christ should be much more “spiritual” and it would occur during this present Church Age.

Having come to this conclusion, therefore, Augustine wrote that the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70 was brought about divinely, that God had ordained the end of unbelieving Jewish Israel and that the prophecies of condemnation and judgment still remain for national Israel and the Jewish people.

Many mainline Protestant denominations, having sprung from Catholicism, adhere to replacement theology today. While thousands of Bible verses can easily prove Augustine wrong, an astounding number of people who call themselves Christian view Israel and the Jew in an evil light.

Replacement Theology may be either Amillennial or Postmillennial. It is currently the most popular in Catholic teaching, as well as the World Council of Churches, the Presbyterian Church USA, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church (ELCA), the Anglican Church and the United Church of Christ.

How else could a supposedly Christian continent be once again falling into anti-Semitism, just 70 years after the closing of Auschwitz?

The Prophetic Number 70:

Seventy nations make up the descendants of Noah through Shem, Ham, and Japheth in Genesis 10, which provides the genealogy of the nations known at that time.

Seventy people accompanied Jacob on his journey to Egypt (Gen. 46:26–27).

Seventy sevens (490 years) were determined for Israel to complete its transgression and bring in the first coming of Messiah (Dan. 9:24).

Seventy is also specially connected with Jerusalem. The city kept 70 years of Sabbaths while Judah was in Babylonian captivity (Jeremiah 25:11).

“Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away” (Ps. 90:10).
