At G-20, Europe Leaders Fend Off Pressure; EU’s Barroso Lashes Out at U.S…
“We are not coming here to receive lessons in terms of democracy or in terms of how to manage our economy,” said European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.
Mr. Barroso, asked by a Canadian reporter why North Americans should help pay for Europe’s crisis, broke from his conciliatory tone and effectively blamed U.S. practices for causing the European troubles.
“This crisis was not originated in Europe,” Mr. Barroso said. “This crisis was originated in North America. Many in our financial sector were contaminated by unorthodox practices from some sectors of the financial market.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303379204577474620938063222.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
President José Manuel Barroso’s comments are not generally accepted in North America or the UK as the following from the Guardian (a UK-based publication) shows:

G20 summit: Barroso’s bungling blame game
José Manuel Barroso’s outburst at the G20 summit in Mexico amounted to sticking his head in the Los Cabos sand…The European commission president, José Manuel Barroso of Portugal, really did throw a serious wobbly at the G20 summit in Mexico. It was awful…No, I don’t think we can blame Canadians for Greece’s dilemma…But the wider implication of Barroso’s outburst should concern us all…the commission president still believes the crisis was caused by speculative banking habits and what one Spanish minister once darkly called “Anglo-Saxon accounting”…Barroso seems to cling to the EU’s glib assertion that the wider crisis was both caused by US/UK banking excesses…It was glib when eurozone bankers asserted it in 2008, and it is unbelievably glib given the current near-paralysis of the zone’s political and economic leadership. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/blog/2012/jun/19/g20-summit-barroso-blame-game?newsfeed=true
As I have written for years, the time will come when the powers in Europe will turn on the Anglo-powers in North America and elsewhere. The Europeans will blame the USA, UK, etc. for various economic and other problems. European Commission President José Manuel Barroso’s comments are helping the EU set the stage not only for current blame, and likely future blame on the Anglo-descended nations.
Despite its prophesied problems (Daniel 2:41-43), Europe will rise up, make a deal with the harlot woman of Revelation 17, and become the end time Beast power of Revelation 13.
Europe’s symbols have also tended to confirm its prophetic role in this regard. The Greek 2 Euro coin (shown above) has an immodest woman, who is supposed to represent the nymph Europa (from whom Europe got its name), riding a beast (who is representing the pagan god leader Zeus). And while that story comes from Greek mythology, the Bible mentions the following related to Europe:
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits…18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 17:3-9,18)
Most theological scholars, including Catholic ones, believe that the city of seven mountains (hills in some translations) represent Rome.
The fact that not only on the Greek coin, but also in front of the EU Council of Ministers Office in Brussels, Belgium there is a large statue of an immodest female Europa on a beast. This shows that the European Union is apparently not ashamed of its suggested ties to these scriptures. Years ago, a Larry Blake sent me several pictures of the woman (Europa) riding the bull (a beast) as symbols of European Union which are linked for additional proof of these ties.
Furthermore, both biblical prophecy (cf. Daniel 11:39) and Catholic prophecy teaches that the European power will eliminate the English/Anglo-descended nations. Blaming the USA, Canada, and UK for financial problems is likely to be one of the end time European power’s reasons for this.
And this blame has been happening, off and on, for some time.

Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? Using the Tower of Babel and “Beast” images suggests it is not concerned about its role as being part of the future Babylon of Bible prophecy.
