commentary: A Return to Nationalism
Ten Kings Back the Beast
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 15-Nov-08; Sermon #910c; 8 minutes
Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the plethora of bailouts eclipsing the international news, suggests that the world seems to be returning to a cold war mentality of nationalism, with each nation trying to protect its own economic security. Russia, China, and Iran all are trying to take back national power. France and Germany have veered back to conservative nationalistic principles. In the wake of the world"s return to nationalism, America has elected its first communal or communitarian 'globalistic' president, putting modern Israel on the wrong side of the international political currents. In the long term, modern Israel will eventually find herself on the wrong side of a short-term Beast Power, devoured, consumed, and utterly humiliated.
