If Muslim fanatics think they can destroy the Vatican they are totally delusional. The Vatican is a 1,500 year + institution, no doubt having trillions of dollars, and enormous influence in South America and Europe.

I believe in prophecy and a new Roman like empire will rule but I do wonder if it could be a joint empire of Europe and Arabia.

not that i truly believe islamic fundamentalists will destroy the vatican, but the roman empire was around for thousands of years and had nearly unlimited resources before being plundered by what were considered to be barbarians. nothing lasts forever.
