    London mayor says the European Union is headed for a new dark age (Second Coming Watch Update #138)

    in News

    London mayor says the European Union is headed for a new dark age. In an op-ed article published in The Canberra Times, Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, England, said that the problems in Greece are only the beginning of worse things to come. Using the example of the Roman Empire, he warned against Europeans being arrogant and forgetful of past lessons. He wrote, "Every day we read of fresh horrors: of once proud families queuing for bread, of people in agony because the government has run out of money to pay for cancer drugs. Pensions are being cut, living standards are falling, unemployment is rising, and the suicide rate is now the highest in the EU." He called for the EU to be broken up in to two smaller unions and said the continued unity of European countries would "consign the continent to a democratic dark ages."

    Israel moves army tanks closer to Egyptian border. According to Ynet News, the IDF has deployed Armored forces near the Israel-Egypt border, moving tanks closer to the fence. The unusual move followed Monday's terror attack on defense contractor crews building the new security fence. Ynet was able to document the presence of Israeli tanks in close proximity to the border - maneuvers which are barred by Jerusalem's peace treaty with Cairo.

    Hindus brutally attack Christians in India. According to Asia News, Hindu ultranationalists attacked Evangelist Baidhare, the pastor of the Pentecostal Fellowship Prayer group, and 12 Christian families in his community. The Global Council of Indian Christians said the attack "is meant to terrify the Christian minority. They want to repeat what happened in 2008, with the anti-Christian pogroms in the Kandhamal district." About 50 Hindus attacked the families, injuring 20 people, young and old, attempted to rape a few girls, and looted their homes. The families have since fled the area.
