A former German FM is warning that Europe could become a playground for upcoming superpowers

Joschka Fischer, the former Foreign Minister (FM) of Germany and now a Professor at Princeton University, is warning that the rest of the world will not wait for Europe while it bickers over institutional reform and external policy issues, which is putting Europe at risk of becoming the playground for upcoming superpowers.

Fischer says in a very sober view of the EU's position in the world as it dusts itself off from 50th birthday celebrations, that the world is looking to China and India as the next superpowers to be, not Europe. Fischer believes that a weakened Europe will make it the playground of these other superpowers in the 21st century which means goodnight Europe.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The warning that Europe is fading and could become the playground for the world's superpowers is in contradiction of the prophetic scenario found in Bible prophecy for the Europeans.

This year, 2007, is the year of celebration in Europe as the EU marks its 50th birthday with the anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome. German Chancellor Merkel, leader of the EU during this period of time, is exerting effort to having the EU constitution ratified and has called for an EU military force to be put in place. However, with all of this activity, the former German FM Joschka Fischer warns that if the Europeans don't quit haggling over non-essential issues, they will be passed by as a superpower and become the playground for the world's superpowers. The prophetic scenario for Europe in the Last Days reveals that, that will not be the case. Europe will become a superpower headed up by the world's dictator.

Daniel, an ancient Jewish prophet, wrote 2,500 years ago that the old Roman Empire would be revived and become the major power in the world, that's Daniel 7:8-9, 23-24. This same passage of prophetic truth foretells of the Antichrist, the leader of this superpower, who is referred to in this passage of Scripture as the 'little horn'.

Professor Fischer's warning may well motivate the EU; however, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
