BRE-EXIT VICTORY: Great Britain votes to leave European Union.

Published

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, results from Thursday’s landmark referendum showed, an outcome that sets the country on an uncertain path and deals the largest setback to European efforts to forge greater unity since World War Two.

World financial markets dived as nearly complete results showed a 51.7/48.3 percent split for leaving. Sterling suffered its biggest one-day fall of more than 9 percent against the dollar, hitting its lowest level in three decades on market fears the decision will hit investment in the world’s 5th largest economy.

The vote will initiate at least two years of messy divorce proceedings with the EU, raise questions over London’s role as a global financial capital and put huge pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron to resign, though he pledged during the campaign to stay on whatever the result.

The euro slumped around 3.5 percent against the dollar on concerns a ‘Brexit’ vote will do wider economic and political damage to what will become a 27-member union. Investors poured into safe haven assets including gold, and the yen surged.

There was no immediate comment from the Bank of England. In an early mark of international concern, Japan’s top currency diplomat Masatsugu Asakawa said he would consult with Finance Minister Taro Aso on how to respond to the market moves, describing the foreign exchange moves as very rough.

Yet there was euphoria among Britain’s eurosceptic forces, claiming a victory they styled as a protest against British political leaders, big business and foreign leaders including Barack Obama who had urged Britain to stay in the bloc.

“Dare to dream that the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom,” said Nigel Farage, leader of the eurosceptic UK Independence Party.

“If the predictions are right, this will be a victory for real people, a victory for ordinary people, a victory for decent people…Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day.”

He called the EU a “doomed project”.

By 5.20 am (0420 GMT), nearly 90 percent of the vote had been counted, making Leave’s lead virtually impossible to reverse.

Asked if Cameron, who called the referendum in 2013 and campaigned to stay in the bloc, should resign if Britain voted for Brexit, Farage said: “Immediately.”

The United Kingdom now faces a threat to its survival, as Scotland voted 62 percent in favor of staying in the EU and is likely to press for a new referendum on whether to become independent after its 2014 vote to stay in the UK.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said Thursday’s vote “makes clear that the people of Scotland see their future as part of the European Union.”

Quitting the EU could cost Britain access to the EU’s trade barrier-free single market and mean it must seek new trade accords with countries around the world. President Barack Obama says it would be at the “back of a queue” for a U.S. pact.

Muslim inbreeding dragging Britain back to the 19th century

Bryan Fischer

Published

Britain is seeing an alarming spike in birth defects, defects they have not seen since the end of the 19th century. There is a one-word explanation: Islam.

The resurgence of these birth defects is due to the prevalence of first cousin marriages in the Muslim community, particularly among immigrants from Pakistan. Such marriages are legal in Britain, to be sure, but by the late 1800s the risk of birth defects in the children of such unions had become so common and so widely known that the practice virtually vanished. (First cousin marriages, which are not specifically banned in Scripture, are illegal in about half the states in the U.S., which is the only country in which such marriages are prohibited anywhere.)

An article in the London Telegraph (which doesn’t use the word “Islam” anywhere in the article, and waits til the 12th paragraph to mention the word “Pakistani”) opens this way (emphasis mine):

Bradford coroner Mark Hinchliffe spoke out after being told how two-year-old Hamza Rehman died as a result of a brain disorder.

An inquest heard how the child suffered from daily fits and vomiting as a result of a condition probably arising from his parents being too closely related.

The boy’s father, Abdul, broke down and wept as the court heard that if he had lived he would have suffered severe learning difficulties.

Through a translator, Mr Rehman, from Bradford, West Yorks, explained that he and his wife, Rozina, were first cousins.

“We were very anxious whether to have more children,” he told the court. “We have recently had another baby with the same problems again.”

After expressing his “profound sympathy to the family” Mr Hinchliffe said the cause of death “arose as a direct consequence of the neurological developmental disorder.”

He said the family had lost another child through a similar disorder and a third child born had now “presented with difficulties.”

Recording a verdict of death by natural causes, Mr Hinchliffe added: “On the face of it this case highlights a cultural and religious issue relating to first cousin marriages and the potential risk of medical difficulty that some medical experts say can result from such unions.”

Pakistani parents in Britain are responsible for 3.4% of all births in England, yet shockingly account for 30% of all children born with recessive gene disorders. This is because the acceptability of first-cousin marriages is engrained in Muslim culture. In Bradford, 55% of all Pakistanis are married to their first cousins.

Even though Pakistanis represent just 15% of Bradford’s population, Bradford has the second highest number of infant deaths in England, and Pakistani parents are 13 times more likely than the general  population to have children with birth disorders. (This according to a study by St. Luke’s Hospital in Bradford.)

According to The Guardian, intermarriage between first cousins doubles the risk that children will be born with birth defects. The difficulty of purging this harmful practice will be especially difficult because it is an established religious as well as cultural practice in the Muslim community.

In Norway, the incidence of first-cousin Pakistani unions is slowly declining, but this is due only to a concerted campaign to inform Muslims of the risk.

There are no quick fixes, which means the U.K. will continue to labor under this burden for decades to come. With Britain’s socialized medicine, the excessive costs of providing lifetime care for patients with birth defects will fall entirely on British taxpayers. And this doesn’t account for the enormous social costs associated with providing education and employment opportunities for this demographic group.

In the worldwide Muslim community, first-cousin marriage rates routinely run as high as 50%, while the rate is about 1% in Europe and 0.2% in the U.S. With unrestrained Muslim immigration the trend du jour, Europe is about to be hit with a medical tsunami which would be entirely avoidable with sensible immigration policies. Alas, the Western world is likely to awaken only after it is too late.

Winston Churchill presciently said 120 years ago, “[T]he influence of the religion (i.e., Islam) paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” (Emphasis mine.)

Islam is pulling British society in a backwards direction. Apart from a spirited revival of the Christian faith and some severe, Donald-Trump style restrictions on Muslim immigration, the United States will be next.

THE UNITED STATES OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZES JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL’S CAPITAL

On Wednesday, December 06, 2017, President Donald Trump declared that the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. President Trump also indicated that the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv would be moved to Jerusalem.

Israel had declared Jerusalem as its capital since its founding in 1948. Previous U.S. presidents have remained neutral on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, to appease Israel’s Arab neighbors, but Trump declared that every sovereign nation has the right to declare the location of its own capital.

 

There are a few notable observations of Scripture prophetic significance concerning the historic announcement by President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

2017 represents a jubilee (50-year) time period since Israel’s Six Day War of 1967, and before that another jubilee (50-year) time period since the Balfour Declaration of 1917 by the British government announcing support for a homeland for the Jewish people in the land of Israel.

President Trump’s Jerusalem announcement on December 6th was declared just six days before Hanukkah, the 12-day Feast of Dedication (John 10:22), which begins December 12th.

The United States’ official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital brings Israel one political step closer to fulfilling the rebuilding of their Third Temple, on the Temple Mount site, where the Dome on the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosques currently sit. In the decades to come these mosques will come down and be relocated by Muslims. Israel’s Third Temple will be erected on its Temple Mount site and Scripture prophecy will be fulfilled, as it is written (2 Thessalonians 2:4; Revelation 11:1).

Israel’s Temple Mount site, where the Dome of the Rock Mosque (gold dome), the Al Aqsa Mosque (silver dome), and other minor Muslim shrines currently sit.

 

The Temple Institute of Jerusalem has the plans and resources already in place to construct Israel’s Third Temple. This golden menorah, encased in security glass near the Temple Mount site, will be placed inside the Temple after it is rebuilt.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed the United Nation, discussing one of the most recent conflicts pertaining to U.S. national security. President Trump discussed the North Korea nuclearization situation, and threatened to “totally destroy” them if the United States is forced to defend itself or its allies.

“The United States has great strength and patience,” Trump continued, “but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

He also told the assembly that the country is operated by a “depraved regime.”

The President called upon other nations to work together, striving to cease doing business with and isolate the country, until it decides to discontinue its nuclear program and aggressive threats.
