Prophetic in Europe: Jeremiah 16:16 Coming to Pass?

European anti-Semitism is no secret to anyone who follows the news. It's hard to know where it's the most virulent—Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, the United Kingdom—there are troublesome incidents throughout Europe and they're increasing.

Burgeoning Islamic populations are taking a toll in several countries, including Sweden, France, Germany and the U.K., which often factor into terror attacks against Jewish citizens.

Some Bible believers see rising anti-Semitism as prophetic, citing Jeremiah 16:16.

"Now, I will send for many fishermen, says the Lord, and they shall fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and out of the holes of the rocks" (Jer. 16:16).

Some hope the increasing danger facing Europe's Jewish communities will convince families to make aliyah—immigrate to Israel under the Law of Return.

When terror attacks became a regular occurrence in France several years ago, thousands of French Jews decided it was time to start a new life in Israel.

Earlier this week, German police beat up an American Jewish professor after he was attacked in a park. The 20-year-old assailant, reportedly a German citizen of Palestinian Arab descent, attacked the professor because he was wearing a kippah, hitting and shoving him, as he shouted, "No Jew in Germany."

The attacker fled the scene and was later arrested and released. Police claimed they punched the professor in the face and threw him to the ground thinking he was the aggressor.

The police chief later apologized on behalf of the officers.
