Germany Abstains From Libyan Air Strikes

On a per capita basis, no country sent more Islamic extremists into Iraq to kill Americans than Libya-and almost all of these extremists came from eastern Libya, the center of the anti-Qadhafi rebellion. This fact make it all the more strange that the United States, Canada, France, Britain and Italy have all now vowed to fight against Colonel Qadhafi so that these eastern Libyan extremists can control the entire country. Perhaps this fact also explains in part why Russia, China and Germany all abstained from the United Nations resolution that authorized these air strikes.

Speaking in Brussels last month, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin warned that America's intervention in Middle East affairs may have unintended results. He recalled how Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini had enjoyed the support of the West while living in France before he returned to Iran in 1979 to lead the Islamic revolution that overthrew the shah. "And now the West is grappling with the Iranian nuclear program," Mr. Putin said. "I remember our partners calling for fair democratic elections in the Palestinian territories," he went on. "Excellent! Those elections were won by Hamas. They declared it a terrorist organization and confronted it shortly thereafter."

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov specifically warned against Western military interference in the civil strife in Libya. "Attempts to undertake military-political intervention can only aggravate problems the Libyan people face," he said in a communique on a meeting between Russian and Saudi diplomats in Moscow last week.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel seems to concur with Putin's analysis. After Germany abstained from the UN resolution that authorized the current air strikes against Libya, Merkel made the following comments: "We wish our partners success because we follow the same political goals but we are of a different position regarding the chances of success," said Angela Merkel. "Our hearts are heavy. It is no easy decision, but one has to consider what will happen in the end."

What is likely to "happen in the end" is the weakening of Qadhafi's totalitarian regime to the point where his country is ripe for further Islamic radicalization and conquest by Iran!

Germany must realize that the current attack against Libya is only likely to strengthen eastern Libya's extremist groups-whether or not Qadhafi is actually forced from power. The result will undoubtedly be the same as that of America's 2003 attack against Saddam Hussein. The ruling regime will be weakened to the point where Iranian subversives will be able to start working freely.

You cannot fight Islamic terrorism in any Middle Eastern nation without confronting the king of Islamic extremists-Iran. Germany no doubt realizes this fact.

Bible prophecy reveals that once Tripoli has come under Tehran's influence, there will be yet another attack against Libya. In this attack, however, Germany will be leading the charge. Iran will not be able to take advantage of the situation this time because it also will be desolated by a blitzkrieg attack from a German-led European empire.
