Deaths due to religious violence
There is no indication that this will stop. Shortly after the last update, all hell broke loose in Turkey validating our argument that we were going to continue witnessing a rise in violence. Violence in the US not necessarily religious based is projected to increase also; hardly a day goes by when you do not hear some story of someone getting shot or killed. Several companies stand to benefit from this; sales of guns and protective gear will surge in the years to come. In the US we stated that violence towards officers of the law is going to rise and in some cases, police officers will get shot at for almost no reason.
Several companies will benefit from this but for now, only one of them looks good when put through our indicators; the company in question is TASR, and it will be covered under the pending plays in the trend section.
Russia will continue to resist the USA, and soon it will start to take the aggressor position whenever its interests are challenged by the US. China is following Russia’s lead, and the action is hitting a boiling point in the South China sea’s. We would not be surprised if China suddenly decides to go on the Offensive and strike first.
Religious violence will soar as well as Stupidity & Arrogance
The trend here is in full swing, so expect leaders, stars, and people around you to behave more arrogant and act more stupidly in months to come. Arrogance is a form of stupidity as the person confuses it with the concept of confidence. A confident person is someone who knows something but acts like he knows nothing. You can just tell by the way they talk and act that they are certain when it comes to a particular topic. An arrogant person does not stop blabbering unless you slap him.
Religious violence soaring because of intolerance
This will not only be restricted to different religions but will also occur within subgroups of the same faith; for example Anglicans and Catholics or Sunni and Shiite, etc. The number of Christians is surging in China and at some point, this will contribute to a surge in violence between Muslims and Christians in China. For now, the government is being equally harsh on both religions; the government favours pragmatism over religion. However, the levels of violence between different religions will, in general, be milder in Asia as compared to that of Europe. Europe is going to be the epicentre regarding religious intolerance and wars.
Try to understand what is going on; this was planned a long time ago, and everything is playing out perfectly as planned. We have covered this topic several times over the past 18 months. Look at how thing spiralled out of control all of a sudden. Why did this happen? Who stands to benefit from this? Could it have been prevented? If it could have why was nothing done? Etc, these are the questions you should be asking yourself; play the devil’s advocate and you will be surprised at what you find.
Religious Violence on the rise 2019
Religious violence is undergoing a revival. The past decade has witnessed a sharp increase in violent sectarian or religious tensions. These range from Islamic extremists waging global jihad and power struggles between Sunni and Shia Muslims in the Middle East to the persecution of Rohingya in Myanmar and outbreaks of violence between Christians and Muslims across Africa. According to Pew, in 2018 more than a quarter of the world’s countries experienced a high incidence of hostilities motivated by religious hatred, mob violence related to religion, terrorism, and harassment of women for violating religious codes.
The spike in religious violence is global and affects virtually every religious group. A 2018 Minority Rights Group report indicates that mass killings and other atrocities are increasing in countries both affected and not affected by war alike. While bloody encounters were recorded in over 50 countries, most reported lethal incidents involving minorities were concentrated in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, India, Myanmar, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Hostilities against Muslims and Jews also increased across Europe, as did threats against Hindus in more than 18 countries. Making matters worse, 55 of the world’s 198 countries imposed heightened restrictions on religions, especially Egypt, Russia, India, Indonesia and Turkey. Full Story
Religious Violence in India
This comes at a time when there has been a proliferation of caste-based and religious-based hate crimes. Hindu mobs continue to beat up and kill members of India’s Muslim minority and its lower castes, and human rights activists accuse Mr. Modi and his political allies of stoking an atmosphere of Hindu nationalism that has contributed to the violence. Most often, the attackers go unpunished.
Some Indians saw the omissions in the crime data as more evidence that the Modi government is withholding information it considers incriminating.
“They are suppressing it very blatantly and very shamelessly,” said Roma Malik, a tribal rights activist. “The government is shutting down voices of dissent and shrinking democratic space.”
Hate crimes have spiked since Mr. Modi took office in 2014. Between May 2015 and December 2018, at least 44 people were killed by cow protection groups, according to a recent report from Human Rights Watch. Full Story
Religious intolerance and the coming civil war
Religious intolerance continues to rise. Many European countries are now taking serious actions against the Muslims, banning the building of mosques in certain parts of the country or making the process extremely hard. We are not concerned whether this is good or bad as we are observers and try to our best not to interact. What this simply means that we have a new trend in place.
The first move was many of these immigrants, most of which came from poor countries where they had very little, so their mindset was to take as much as they could when they landed in countries that had excellent social programs in place to take care of their own people; it also just so happened that the majority of these new immigrants to Europe also happened to be muslin. Remember this ignorance and stupidity is colour and religion blind.
Now the local natives are retaliating, and they are doing so in a very hard manner. All of this could have been handled smoothly if some very simple and benign rules were added right from the start, but it’s too late to cry over spilt milk now. The point is that the pendulum has swung; a new trend is a place, and this one promises to be even bitterer.
The locals (natives) from these European nations are now ready to fight and when a group of individuals who have been quiet for so long suddenly change their position, you can bet that things will and can only get uglier. Tolerance levels are dropping rapidly in Europe and so the net result going forward is extreme polarization; the net result is that the number of violent encounters between different religious groups is going to spike significantly.
