Her extremist pro-big business policies and privatisation agenda will be very controversial. She will brutally destroy the power of the British Trades Union Movement and nearly eradicate British industry in the process – leaving Britain distorted and vulnerable with a service sector dominated economy.

They will of course be disappointed as the Wahhabi extremists and Extremist Shiites who have come to the fore since the destruction of the Caliphate will continue to destroy the Muslim lands from within and incite new enemies from without.

2014 CE A terrible Ebola plague affects parts of West Africa and threatens the people of the planet as no treatment or vaccine has yet been developed

2014 CE Syria has become a quagmire in which the Free Syrian Army has been unable to defeat the Baathists. This has largely been due to a failure in international support and the evil influence of the murderous Kharijite un-Islamic State (or pseudo-Caliphate) that has been established by the ISIS-ISIL group. They have fought the FSA and thus saved  Bashar al Assad. They have managed to overtake a Sunni uprising in Iraq and seem likely to get many good Sunnis killed by Western bombing both in Iraq and Syria. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saws) warned that the Dajjal will arise from amongst the Kharijites. Observers note that ISIS has been the perfect zionist tool for the tainting of the terms “Caliphate”, “Islamic State” and “Sunni”. If the enemies of Islam did not create this terrible group then they surely wish they had thought of doing so earlier.
