Revolution spreading?

Here's a map that appeared in Business Insider on Friday. You can find a larger version of it here.

Here's the key point of the map: The unrest is no longer confined to the Arab world. It's spreading:
But what may be the most interesting is that it seems like the unrest is spreading.

“Most of the inflation riots and protests are concentrated in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region,” EconoMatters writes on the Business Insider site, “but as you can see on the Google map, they are starting to migrate into Europe, as well as China and India.”

It continues:
In the U.S., anemic growth, an ongoing housing depression, high unemployment and two rounds of quantitative easing (QE) probably have laid a pretty solid foundation for a similar riot map if Chairman Bernanke decides to grace us with QE3.
No longer, then, is the unrest localized to the “Arab Spring” countries from a few months ago. As Beck has talked about for a while, this could be the start of the “coming insurrection.”
And the one island of stability in all this? You guessed it. Little Israel.

Israel also had its protests about prices, just no violence. The Pals will probably provide that next month though.

Another important and related phenomenon is the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, which has now been repeated on a smaller scale in the US.

In both the natural and man-made disasters you have the foundations being shaken then the water/youth sweeping through cities and destroying them. In Japan there was a major release of radiation; who is controlling the nuclear materials in Libya?

Actually Canada might be the one island you talk about.

But noting what you wrote in another post regarding Genesis chapter 12, I will say that Canada is the most pro-Israel country in the world right now (other than Israel).

Once again it is as if Australia doesn't exist, not even as an island of relative peace...
