Franco Frattini, the Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner for the European Union, has revealed a new raft of anti-terrorism measures that he hopes will help prevent another major terrorist attack from happening on European soil. The controversial plans are to be submitted for review at an upcoming EU summit, which include the biometric registration of all foreign nationals entering the European Union. A biometric identity card for EU immigrants was first proposed by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair last year. Passenger lists of all flights entering or leaving the EU would also be passed on to the intelligence agencies of member states, and would later be expanded to include flights within the European Union itself...   

Quote: "Non-EU nationals would be electronically registered with biometric identifiers under the plan, Frattini said at a meeting in Portugal of EU ministers in charge of policing. The register is "extremely necessary" in order to crack down on people who are granted permission to stay for a restricted time but melt away when the period expires, he said.

Controversial security measures such as the government's DNA database have already been slammed as discriminatory by British judges. The judge in question stated that he would rather the government obtained a record of everyone's DNA, rather than just a select few. And so it is for biometric ID cards for foreign nationals. As the article states, having a biometric record of people living outside the EU will not prevent terrorism committed by British citizens, as we saw in the Glasgow airport attack earlier in the year. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and the governments would soon find themselves having to roll out the biometric registration to all their citizens. And that is the plan. The UK government already has plans for the compulsory fingerprinting of 500,000 children per year starting in 2010. The book of Revelation states that during the tribulation period, four world conditions would prevail... war, terrorism, famine and death. I find the second horseman of the apocalypse particularly intriguing considering the modern day scourge of Islamic terrorism...

Revelation 6:3-4 
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Peace taken from the earth... that they should kill "one another"... a "great sword"... Although this horseman won't ride until the tribulation period begins, I think these verses sum up pretty well the world we are now living in. There have always been wars, but global terrorism seems to be a relatively recent phenomenon. In the midst of all this chaos, the claim will be made that mankind must receive an identifying mark in their right hand or forehead, and pledge allegiance to the world peacemaker - the Antichrist. World governments are already making the claim that all people should receive identity cards to protect us from the threat of global terrorism. Many non-believers associate the Mark of the Beast with a world dictator and even Satan himself, and think they would never accept such a thing were it to come to pass. Sadly I believe this world dictator will be world peacemaker, and the case will easily be made for accepting his mark.

Revelation 13:8
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (Antichrist), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
