I’ve Read This in a History Book!

If you look at an old map of Europe and Middle East from the times of the Holy Wars, what you will see is anarchy. It is a world torn apart by political and religious ideology. Have our times changed? Today’s world is now going back to this type of medieval rule it once had, bringing us back to a world wrapped in chaos. Returning us to a state of fear and war.
The close geographical proximity of North Africa and Asia to Europe has stirred up turbulence in Europe over last several years. Terrorists once exported fear and now they export economic and social problems into a weakened Europe. The flood of refugees from the unstable Middle East, added to a European Economic crisis is causing havoc.
On top of this crisis, a once weak and vulnerable Russia, is now stretching its economic and military muscle under Putin. His bullying tactics has annexed Crimea, overrun eastern Ukraine and again threatens European borders with a renewed frost.
Eastern European countries are now re-dividing into ‘fractioned states’, reconstructing a new Iron Wall. With some drawing closer to the U.S. and it’s NATO allies with hope that they can be an effective barrier against Russian totalitarianism. Meanwhile, Western Europe strained by the tide of refugees, seek to build an alliance with Russia in order to combat an enemy that seeks to destroy our faith and ideology by exporting wrath and chaos.
Take a look at an old map; compare it with the events that are happening today. Has history changed?
