Europe torn, but may Donald Trump help it unify?

There are candidates rising up in the Netherlands and France that are concerning various ones:

March 6, 2017

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The economy is up, unemployment is down and some Dutch prisons are so empty the government has been renting out cells.

So why do polls indicate that the Netherlands’ ruling parties are set to suffer big losses before a March 15 national election, while the party of right-wing anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders appears poised to make substantial gains?

“It’s not the economy, stupid,” Professor Gerrit Voerman of the University of Groningen said, tweaking the campaign message Bill Clinton used in his successful 1992 march to the White House. Instead, Voerman said, “It’s about identity.”

Wilders’ campaign slogan sums it up: “The Netherlands ours again!”

The nationalist refrain, which echoes U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign call to make America great again, is a theme that could dominate elections in two other European nations this year- France and Germany. How Wilders’ Party for Freedom fares next month should provide an indication of the prospects for fellow far-right nationalists Marine Le Pen, the presidential candidate for France’s National Front party, and Frauke Petry of the Alternative for Germany. …

Wilders’ one-page election manifesto leads off with two “us-against-them” themes. The Party for Freedom pledges to “de-Islamize” the Netherlands by shutting all mosques, banning the Quran and halting all immigration from majority Muslim nations. It also commits to remove the Netherlands from the European Union, which it helped found 60 years ago.

What I’m observing today is that the European *story* is broken. …

The truth is I don’t know whether or not Le Pen will win in France this May. I don’t have a crystal ball. But what I do know is that nothing is happening between now and those elections that makes it less than a 50/50 coin toss whether Le Pen wins. There’s going to be a steady stream of negative press about all of the candidates from now until then, the difference being that core Le Pen supporters, like core Trump supporters, don’t care about the negative press.

March 6, 2017

Outgoing French President Francois Hollande said in an interview published in several newspapers that his “ultimate duty” is to prevent far-right candidate Marine Le Pen from winning the upcoming election.

“My ultimate duty is to make sure that France is not won over by such a program, and that France does not bear such a heavy responsibility,” Hollande said of the risk of the National Front leader’s victory.

Hollande’s interview was published in multiple European media outlets, including Le Monde, La Stampa, The Guardian, La Vanguardia, Suddeutsche Zeitung and Gazeta Wyborcza, according to Reuters.

Le Pen, seen by some as the French Donald Trump, is considered as one of the two candidates who will move onto the second round in France’s presidential elections. She has maintained her popularity despite being the center of investigations along with her anti-immigration National Front party. … Le Pen’s campaign speaks of a new landscape pitting “patriots” against “globalists” — the Paris political elite she accuses of surrendering France’s power and sovereignty to European bureaucrats and opening it to culture-destroying mass immigration.

Whether or not Geert Wilders or Marine Le Pen win, the reality is that Europe will one day deal with Islamic immigration and it will not be by encouraging more of it.

For years, I have warned that problems with Islam will be a factor in the rise of the European Beast power.

It is precisely because of mass Islamic immigration that Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen have a chance–not that I believe that either of them is or will be the Beast of Revelation 13:1-10. But there rising up is paving the way for a strongman to rise up in Europe.

As the election in the USA of Donald Trump has shown, even someone that the mainstream does not care for can win. This has bolstered supporters of both Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen. This may also be a factor in the rise of the Beast of Revelation.

That being said, there is another way that Donald Trump seems to be affecting in Europe. A reader sent me the following:

The Trump Trade Threat Could Unite the Rest of the World, EU Official Says

U.S. President Donald Trump’s protectionist stance may propel Asian, Middle Eastern and Latin American economic powers into market-opening alliances with the European Union, a top EU official said.

Jyrki Katainen, a vice president of the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, said Trump’s rejection of multilateral commercial deals and border-tax threat are giving impetus to the 28-nation bloc’s push for free-trade or investment pacts with countries including Japan, China, India, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

“When there has been some signals to raise protectionism, especially from the U.S. side, the rest of the world seems to be fighting back and saying that this is not our line, this is something which we don’t want,” Katainen, 45, said in Bloomberg Television interview in Brussels. “This is music to our ears.”

The comments signal that Trump’s “America First” approach that seeks to reduce the U.S.’s $502 billion trade deficit may be as much an opportunity as a threat to the EU. …

Katainen offered an unabashed defense of the liberal economic order that the EU stands for, calling the bloc a “trade superpower” that will embrace overtures from economic partners elsewhere since Trump’s surprise election victory in November.

“We have been happy to see that, during the last couple of months, many of those countries with whom we have negotiated and with whom the negotiations have been very, very slow have indicated they want to speed up the negotiations and get good agreements done with the EU,” he said. “The EU will do everything in order to materialize and capitalize on this political moment. It’s in our DNA to support freer world trade.”

Landmark Trade Deal

After sealing a landmark free-trade agreement with Canada, the EU is seeking to make progress on a slew of commercial goals ranging from the upgrade of a longstanding accord with Mexico to the completion of four years of talks on a deal with Japan.

Other initiatives include slow-going or stalled negotiations on free-trade pacts with India, South America’s Mercosur bloc and the Gulf Cooperation Council, and on an investment accord with China.

The Bible teaches that it will be a European power, NOT the USA, that will be the major trading power later this century (cf. Revelation 18). Europe wants to be the world’s leading trading power and sees an opportunity being created by Donald Trump.

Furthermore, because of Donald Trump’s comments about military spending and NATO, Europe is unifying over the idea that it also needs to become a massive military power.

As I have repeatedly reported here, many in Europe see Donald Trump’s rise as a signal that Europe now must rise up and lead the West (see EU says US’ vote for Trump more significant than UK’s Brexit vote and ‘America Has Abdicated Its Leadership of the West’).

Notice something else from an article in the Germany publication Der Spiegel:

America Has Abdicated Its Leadership of the West

For 100 years, the United States was the leader of the free world. With the election of Donald Trump, America has now abdicated that role. It is time for Europe, and Angela Merkel, to step into the void.

14 November 2016

The leaders of the West, minus America, face monumental tasks ahead.

Notice that the above called the European leaders, “the leaders of the West.” Europe wants to be the leader.

While the Bible shows that Europe will have problems with unity (Daniel 2:41-43)–and may very well split various ways–it also shows that it will end up with a “great army” (Daniel 11:25), reorganize and unify under the Beast (Revelation 17:12-13), and one-day successfully invade the USA and divide its lands for gain (Daniel 11:39).

Anti-immigration sentiments, as well as anti-Donald Trump sentiments, plus taking advantage of international opportunities, will be  factors in Europe’s rise.

While Europe is torn, and “every city or house divided against itself will not stand” (Matthew 12:25), the Bible shows that Europe will only STAND as leader for around four years (cf. Revelation 13:10).

But it will rise up and we are seeing more actions from Europe that are aligning with end time biblical prophecies.
