The Bill Randles article in the link below is very interesting. As I read it I thought about the flood of Moslem refugees heading for Europe – and wondered how many others were heading for and being welcomed by Moslem nations (apart from those immediately accessible across the closest borders.)
In the past refugees have flooded over those immediate borders and have been housed in refugee camps (not pleasant, but a reasonably safe haven from the immediate danger they had been facing). So why NOW are so many people suddenly insisting on making the longer trip to central Europe?
To any thinking person, the spectacle of hundreds of thousands of “refugees” from Africa, and the horrors of the Syrian civil war, spilling out onto the shores of Italy, and forcing themselves over the barriers erected in Hungary is both heartbreaking and ominous.
Who wouldn’t be moved at the plight of frightened women and children packed into rust ships, desperate to get away from the wanton slaughter occurring in their Syrian homeland? The apocalyptic warfare taking place in Syria spares neither the elderly, the weak, women nor children. Mind numbing atrocities are being committed on both “sides”of the conflict. (Ishmael cannot find peace, He even fights His brothers).
Photos of precious children washed up on the shores, having drowned en-route to European shores tear at the western heart, which had once been softened by centuries of Christian teaching.
But a closer examination reveals troubling details.
