This weekend could be a major milestone in the prophesied emergence of the final resurrection of the German-led Holy Roman Empire.
It appears the current phase of Europe’s debt crisis is entering its last hour. We’ll know soon, but it’s possible the weekend of May 5, 2012, will be remembered as a transformative moment in the history of Europe.
Once again, the nation at the center of it all is Germany.
On Sunday, a noteworthy chain of events will culminate in France’s run-off presidential election. While many of the events in this chain appear unrelated, with each unfurling in its own distinct way in a city or within a government in a different country, they’re threaded through with a common theme: frustration with Germany, and specifically, Berlin’s unrelenting demand for Sparmaßnahmen (austerity).
On Tuesday, millions of Europeans hit the streets in May Day protests that centered on their governments’ efforts to follow Germany’s demand and impose austerity on Europe’s ailing economies. Spain, a nation dancing with default, had the largest turnout, with large demonstrations in 80 cities. Tens of thousands more hit the streets of Portugal. In France, over 300,000 demonstrated in 290 different rallies, more than four times the number that turned out last year.

The one thing that I will say is that Germany may have the economic powerhouse and be in the best fiscal shape...but that's only because the other countries in the region buy their stuff like the U.S. buys from the Chinese. And the German government seems to think that they can drive the other countries to their knees without suffering.

Wow... way to give credit to the real writer of this thread
and yes, my reply is a direct reflective of the effort you put into this thread
German authorities said Wednesday they had opened a probe against 81 people after violent clashes between ultra-conservative Muslims and police outside a rally by a far-right party.
A police spokesman said 44 members of the Islamic Salafist community and another 37 people who had gathered outside a mosque in the western town of Solingen for a counter-demonstration were questioned and released.
that God is a family of divine beings currently composed of the Father and the Son into which humans may be born into.
The church observes sunset Friday to sunset Saturday as the Sabbath day of worship.
PCG members observe dietary laws as laid out in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14.
Teaches that British and Americans are descended from the lost ten tribes of Israel (British Israelism).
PCG also has strong apocalyptic teachings inherited from WCG. It teaches that a Great Tribulation will soon occur in which a united European power will emerge, composed of ten nations or groups of nations, which will conquer the modern descendants of Israel (the USA, Britain and Israel) and take them into slavery. An alliance of eastern powers (including Russia and China) will gather up its forces and wage war upon the European power. Then Jesus Christ will return and liberate the Israelites and usher in a thousand years of worldwide peace, which is called the 'world tomorrow'.

Okay, now wait a minute, please!
Those austerities are not based on Germany alone, in fact most Germans can't understand why Greece, Portugal, Ireland and last-but-not-least Spain are bringing their economy down by following theses austerities to the point!
We do not want to be the single strong man in the ring, we would very much like the rest of Europe to provide financial aids, too.
We do not want to upgrade our army - that was a topic yesterday in britains newspapers, they wanted us to upgrade. In fact (and I know that first hand) the Bundeswehr is definitive scaled down, thanks to decisions like canceling army duty. Many, many garrisons are getting closed over the next 5 or 6 years. The big purchases right now are the A400M (a military cargo plane based on the Airbus A400, very much behind schedule btw) and the Eurohawk (a non-weaponizable drone based on the Global Hawk).
Sorry, we are not building any battleships. Or are upgrading our Leopard II.
oh, you are from england....
I'm curious, do you think politics and religion are not in the same boat?
now this trumpet bunch, in order to grasp their thinking, one would have to know the scriptural details.....
