US to take more migrants, while EU sets quotas–will any regret this?

US Secretary of State John Kerry


In the past few weeks the migrant crisis in Europe has accelerated.  Today, the USA pledged to take more migrants:

September 9, 2015

The United States pledged Wednesday to accept more refugees fleeing from wars in Syria and elsewhere, even as Europe unveiled a mandatory country-by-country quota plan to resettle 160,000 migrants.

After meeting with lawmakers in Congress, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said, “We are looking hard at the number that we can specifically manage with respect to the crisis in Syria and Europe. That’s being vetted fully right now.”

Meanwhile, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker called Wednesday for EU member states to resettle 160,000 refugees escaping from war in Syria and elsewhere — but is running into opposition from countries objecting to mandatory quotas.

“The Europe I want to live in is illustrated by those who are helping,” Juncker told the European Parliament. “The Europe I don’t want to live in is a Europe refusing those who are in need.”

“We can build walls, we can build fences. But imagine for a second it were you, your child in your arms, the world you knew torn apart around you,” he added. “There is no price you would not pay, there is no wall you would not climb, no sea you would not sail, no border you would not cross if it is war or the barbarism of the so-called Islamic State that you are fleeing.”

But the Czech and Slovak governments held firm in their opposition to the country-by-country quotas Juncker said are needed to cope with Europe’s worst migration crisis since World War II.

“I refused the quotas,” Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said this week as details of the quota plan emerged, “because I don’t consider quotas to be the real solution to the migration crisis.”

Security concerns

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico expressed concern that terrorists might slip into Europe with the refugees massing on the continent’s doorstep. Most of the migrants are looking to settle in more prosperous Western European countries, especially Germany and Sweden.

“When terrorists are grouping in Syria,” Fico said, “how can we distinguish these people from the other migrants who are crossing the borders of the European Union without any controls?”

Juncker said Europe could not leave Greece, Italy, and Hungary alone to handle the vast influx of migrants.

“We Europeans should never forget why giving refuge and complying with fundamental right of asylum is so important,” he said.

He urged EU interior ministers to endorse the resettlement plan next week. …

Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany, where refugees have been welcomed with food, water and toys for children, has called Juncker’s plan “a first important step.” In remarks Wednesday, she said if Europe fails on the refugee issue, then it has lost one of the founding impulses for a united Europe: universal human rights.

But she cautioned that migrants coming to Germany out of economic need, rather than fleeing war or political persecution, must be turned away.

Germany said it expects 800,000 refugees this year. Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said his country could accommodate a half-million refugees annually for several years.

Polls show many Europeans are opposed to the quota plan. Speaking before the parliament after Juncker, French far-right leader Marine Le Pen said giving migrants the right to work in France was like spitting in the face of the country’s seven million jobless citizens.

The European quotas look to be based on population, but not all EU countries are listed in it (the UK, to name one, is missing).  The UK has said it will take thousands of the migrants.

As far Germany goes, Chancellor Merkel also stated that the migrants would have to be integrated into German society and not be separated.  Since many of the migrants are Muslim, that may not work out well.  The time will come when Islam will not be tolerated in Europe (cf. Revelation 13).  It may well be that issues with immigrants will be a factor in a coming reorganization of Europe and the rise of the final Beast (Revelation 17:12-13).

While many refugees truly need help, some people are not grateful for the help they get, and some people become hostile to nations that take them in.

As far as the USA and UK goes, the Bible shows that terrorism is prophesied:

14 ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16 I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you. (Leviticus 26:14-17)

25 The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be terror within (Deuteronomy 32:25)

12 “Cry and wail, son of man; For it will be against My people, Against all the princes of Israel. Terrors including the sword will be against My people; Therefore strike your thigh. (Ezekiel 21:12)

12 Behold, these are the ungodly,Who are always at ease; They increase in riches…19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. (Psalms 73:12,19)

25 Because you disdained all my counsel, And would have none of my rebuke, 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, 27 When your terror comes like a storm, And your destruction comes like a whirlwind, When distress and anguish come upon you. (Proverbs 1:25-27)

5 Also they are afraid of height, And of terrors in the way (Ecclesiastes 12:5).

Bringing in people from areas filled with terrorists could be a factor in fulfilling prophecies like the above.

In the 83rd Psalm, the Bible also shows that a confederation will form against the USA, its Anglo-Saxon allies, and Israel involving Arab and European forces (see also the article Anglo – America in Prophecy). And I have long believed that terrorism will have to be part of this–having more people with connections to terrorists within the UK and USA would tend to facilitate this.
The USA, its Anglo-Saxon allies, and Israel will end up being hit by massive terrorism.  They will also face destruction (Deuteronomy 32:25) from the King of the North (Daniel 11:39).  Terrorism may be a factor in weakening them first.
