Did a blind Bulgarian clairvoyant predict the rise of ISIS? ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’ who died 20 years ago said there would be a ‘great Muslim war’ in 2016
- Baba Vanga made the predictions before she died in 1996 at the age of 85
- Pensioner warned that Europe will ‘cease to exist’ by the end of next year
- Also credited with predicting the 2004 tsunami and attacks on Twin Towers
A Bulgarian clairvoyant who died 20 years ago warned of the rise of ISIS by claiming there would be a ‘great Muslim war’ in 2016, it has been reported.
Baba Vanga died in 1996 at the age of 85 and was known as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’ because of her success rate which was supposedly as high as 85 per cent.
The blind pensioner, who has previously been credited with predicting the 9/11 terror attacks and the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, warned of an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists next year.
Vanga is said to have made hundreds of predictions in her lifetime, including that there would be a ‘great Muslim war’ which would start with the Arab Spring in 2010.
She predicted it would take place in Syria and would come to a conclusion in 2043 with the establishment of a caliphate with Rome at its centre, News.com.au reports.
Vanga reportedly said Europe will ‘cease to exist’ by the end of next year, leaving the continent ‘almost empty’ and a ‘wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life’.
The chilling prophecy has alerted conspiracy theorists who highlight ISIS activity close to Europe in Libya.
Vanga’s followers say she predicted the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami by foreseeing a ‘huge wave’ which would ‘cover a big coast covered with people and towns, and everything will disappear beneath the water.’
In 1989 the mystic is said to have made reference to the 9/11 terror attacks on New York by claiming ‘American brethren’ would be attacked by ‘two steel birds’.
Some suggest this was a reference to the two hijacked passenger jets that were flown in to the World Trade Center.
She is also alleged to have predicted the effects of climate change 60 years ago by warning that polar ice caps would melt and cause sea levels to rise.
Vanga was born in the village of Strumica at the foot of a mountain range in what was the Ottoman Empire.
She is believed to have lost her eyesight during storm when she was picked up in a fierce gust of wind and dumped back down on the ground.
Vanga later claimed she had the ability to look into the future and quickly developed a ‘cult’ following.
In later years, she became trusted by the rich and famous with even heads of state and powerful politicians from around the world seeking her opinions.

She also warned of the effects of climate change by suggesting ‘cold regions will become warm… and volcanoes will awaken.’
‘Everything will melt, just like ice,’ she added.

LOOKING IN TO THE FUTURE
Vanga made predictions for the next few centuries before she died. Highlights include her warnings that aliens will help civilisations live underwater by 2130 and that there will be a war on Mars in 3005.
In another apocalyptic message, she said everything on earth will die by 3797 – but that by this stage humans should be capable of moving to a new star system.
