When in Rome...

Rome is getting very worried about ISIS.

We have reported on the strange prophecies that seem to be driving news lately..

Now the DAILY BEAST is reporting about officials in Rome having no clue how to deal with the threat of ISIS, but being very concerned about their potential advance from Libya to Italy..

Barbie Latza Nadeau reports this in the BEAST article:

Last weekend in Italy, as the threat of ISIS in Libya hit home with a new video addressed to “the nation signed with the blood of the cross” and the warning, “we are south of Rome,” Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi shuttered up the Italian embassy in Tripoli and raised his fist with the threat of impending military action.  Never mind that Italy has only 5,000 troops available that are even close to deployable, according to the defense ministry. Or that the military budget was cut by 40 percent two years ago, which has kept the acquisition of 90 F-35 fighter jets hanging in the balance and left the country combat-challenged to lead any mission—especially one against an enemy like the Islamic State.

In fact, Renzi didn’t specify exactly who would wield that military might, and, two days later, when no one volunteered to lead the charge, he backtracked.  “It’s not the time for a military intervention,” Renzi told an Italian television station Monday night and said the United Nations had to lead the way.  “Our proposal is to wait for the UN Security Council. The strength of the UN is decidedly superior to that of the radical militias.”

Among the notable facts reported: Libya is just 109 miles away from the island of Lampedusa and 300 miles from Sicily..

There have been recent news stories regarding threats on the Pope's life, with very real plots revealed..

There is an increased security presence outside Rome's American embassy on Via Veneto and the Libyan embassy on Via Nomentana..

The most recent beheading video released by ISIS showcases Coptic Christians meeting their collective and bloody demise.. The threat of the video was that ISIS was going to Europe next. And the goal: Rome.

The Vatican.

The Pope.
The war of religions in our modern times..

The Pope has spoken out against ISIS on a number of occasions, most recently speaking of the horror of the 21 beheaded Christians.. As a matter of fact, he called them modern martyrs.. Cardinal Dolan, a famed figure of Catholic hierarchy, says that civilization itself is being threatened by ISIS.

In January, prior to the recent beheading and threats, the Vatican saw 'dangers' with a terror threat..

Those dangers are getting closer..
The world is watching..
