DANIEL 11:37 – Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

He will not regard the desires of the God of Abraham, who was the God of his fathers until Mohammed spread the word that the God of Islam was to be Allah.

He will have no regard or understanding of the role of a woman’s rights in the plan of the true God’s desire in his established role of the woman in marriage.

“Nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all” relates back to Daniel 11:36, and certainly fits Antichrist’s description in II Thessalonians 2:4.

DANIEL 11:38 – But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.


Concerning the “God of forces,” the following three paragraph quote from America
Israel Prophecy, it certainly views the subject of verse 38 as being fond of enforcing his will on others by force.

Mohammed was said to spread, through warfare, the rules of Islam. Mohammed became increasingly violent during his career and spent 10 years in Medina creating an army to overthrow his homeland, Mecca, after he was ran off by the pagans in 622 AD. He killed thousands of people and subdued Arabia through war. Muslims are encouraged to commit acts of heroism in combat. They are promised that those who kill and are killed will be rewarded with paradise. This is the basis for suicide bombers. They believe that since they are killing while they are killed that the sin of suicide is covered by the martyrdom of their action and, as such, they will be rewarded in heaven. Islam is a religion of political rule, a system of government. It is not about a personal relationship with Allah, it is about bringing the world under submission to its rule.

The Quran (Koran) was written over time during the life of Mohammed (conveyed or recited by him). He started as a peaceful man, but as time went on he changed many of his values. As he became increasingly violent, his writings matched his attitude. The correct interpretation of the Quran is to take any conflict in doctrine, of which there is a whole lot, and replace an older verse with the latest one, supplanting it’s meaning with the more recent version in a process called abrogation. The problem is that the Quran is compiled from the longest Sura to the shortest, so it’s nearly impossible to know which conflicting verse to believe or obey. The Muslims have a whole committee of scholars to interpret the Quran and decide which verses were written first and the succession of them to the last.

If you think Islam is a religion of peace, as they claim, just look at all the wars they are involved in today, in Europe, China, Africa, etc., and the mindset of Muslims as a whole as they chant “Death to Israel, Death to America”, while they are working toward their goal of subduing the world. Islam is a religion of peace only when they have conquered the world and subjected it to the rule of Islam. Also, if the son of the ruler of Hamas says that Islam has no moderates, then I believe him.


The God of the early patriarchal descendants of Ishmael never heard of Allah until Muhammad showed up many years after the New Testament was canonized.

The antichrist will be a descendent of Abraham, but he will have no regard for the God of Abraham through Jacob, the man Israel. He will rise out of the Islamic faith through Ishmael, but in the end will claim to be the god of gods, perhaps even Allah incarnate, thereby magnifying himself above all gods, since Islam considers Allah to be the one and only supreme God.


Antichrist will honor Allah with the spoils of the war used to build up his Caliphate.

Daniel 11:42,43 – He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. [43] But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

DANIEL 11:39 –Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

The Hebrew word for “strong holds” means “fortified places, highly strengthened fortresses.” I believe it refers to the fortresses of Daniel’s 10 horns led by antichrist. Daniel refers to it as a “strange” god, because Allah was not known in either the Old or the New Testaments. Antichrist will divide the land he captures between the 10 horns that initially helped him. All of the many Islamic nations that eventually join the antichrist’s great caliphate will honor Allah as he does, and many will be ruled by his cronies.

Listing of National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces
The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces is a coalition of opposition groups in the Syrian civil war. It was formed on 11 November 2012 at a conference of opposition groups held in Doha, Qatar. It contains organisations such as the Syrian National Council. Islamic preacher Moaz al-Khatib is the president of the coalition, Riad Seif and Suheir Atassi were elected vice presidents. Mustafa Sabbagh is the coalition’s secretary-general.[6]

The Syrian National Council is a coalition of Syrian opposition groups based in Istanbul, Turkey that was formed in 2011 during the Syrian civil war.[7][8] Key people are current chairman George Sabra and ex chairmen Burhan Ghalioun and Abdulbaset Sieda.

Muslim Brotherhood: Islamist party founded in 1930. The brotherhood was behind the Islamic uprising in Syria between 1976 until 1982. The party is banned in Syria and membership became a capital offence in 1980. The regime of Bashar al Assad and others have accused the Muslim Brotherhood of being key players in the Syrian uprising that escalated into a civil war.[9][10][11] Other sources have described the group as having “risen from the ashes”,[12] “resurrected itself”[13] to be a dominant force in the uprising.[14] Current leader is Ali Sadreddine Al-Bayanouni.

Coalition of Secular and Democratic Syrians: nucleus of a Syrian secular and democratic opposition that appeared during the Syrian civil war. It was created by the union of a dozen Muslim and Christian, Arab and Kurd parties, who called the minorities of Syria to support the fight against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.[14][15] The Coalition has also called for military intervention in Syria, under the form of a no-fly zone similar to that of Kosovo, with a safe zone and cities.[16][17] The president of the coalition, who is also a member of the Syrian National Council, is Randa Kassis.[18][19][20][21]

Damascus Declaration: Opposition bloc from 2005. Twelve members were sentenced to 2.5 years in prison in 2008. Syrian journalist and activist Michel Kilo launched the declaration, after the Syrian writer and thinker Abdulrazak Eid had written its first draft. Riad Seif, another democracy activist, was the first signatory.[22] The “five small opposition groups” signing the declaration were the Arab nationalist National Democratic Rally, the Kurdish Democratic Alliance, the Committees of Civil Society, the Kurdish Democratic Front and the Movement of the Future.[23] The Movement for Justice and Development in Syria (MJD) also subscribes to the Damascus Declaration.[24] In a series of splits 2007-2009, most members left the Damascus Declaration, leaving the MJD and SDPP (see below) as the only remaining factions of any consequence, along with a number of independents.

Syrian Democratic People’s Party: A socialist party which played a “key role” in the creation of the SNC.[25] The party’s leader George Sabra (a secularist born to a Christian family) is the official spokesman of the SNC, and also ran for chairman.[26]

Supreme Council of the Syrian Revolution: Syrian opposition group supporting the overthrow of the Bashar al-Assad’s government. It grants local opposition groups representation in its national organization.

Local Coordination Committees of Syria: Network of local protest groups that organise and report on protests as part of the Syrian civil war, founded in 2011.[27][28] As of August 2011, the network supported civil disobedience and opposed local armed resistance and international military intervention as methods of opposing the Syrian government.[29] Key people are activists Razan Zaitouneh and Suhair al-Atassi.[30]

Free Syrian Army & Higher Military Council: Paramilitary that has been active during the Syrian civil war.[31][32] Composed mainly of defected Syrian Armed Forces personnel,[33][34][34] its formation was announced on 29 July 2011 in a video released on the internet by a uniformed group of deserters from the Syrian military who called upon members of the Syrian army to defect and join them.[35] The leader of the group, who identified himself as Colonel Riad al-Asaad, announced that the Free Syrian Army would work with demonstrators to bring down the system, and declared that all security forces attacking civilians are justified targets.[36][37] It has also been reported that many former Syrian Consulates are trying to band together a Free Syrian Navy from fishermen and defectors to secure the coast.[38]

Al-Tawhid Brigade: an armed group of the Free Syrian Army active in the Battle of Aleppo.

Liwaa al-Umma: a paramilitary group fighting against the Syrian government in the Syrian civil war. The group was previously led by Mahdi Al-Harati, an Irish-Libyan who led Libyan rebel Tripoli Brigade during the Battle of Tripoli. In September 2012 it came under command of the Free Syrian Army.


National Coordination Committee for the Forces of Democratic Change (NCC or NCB, for National Coordination Bureau): Syrian opposition bloc chaired by Hassan Abdel Azim[39] consisting of about 13 mostly left-leaning political parties and independent political activists, including three Kurdish political parties, and youth activists, operating within Syria and abroad.[40] The NCC gathers a large proportion of the secular political parties in the pre-revolutionary Syrian dissident movement, mainly leftists and Arab nationalists. Many of its leaders are veteran dissidents, some of them famous former prisoners of conscience. It was the first major coalition formed during the revolution, in summer 2011. It was originally considered a chief rival of the SNC, and portrayed itself as Syria’s “internal opposition” (in contrast to the exile-backed SNC), but it has lost influence as the conflict has become more militarized.

National Democratic Rally: Banned opposition alliance formed in 1980 comprising five political parties of a secularist, pan-Arabist, Arab nationalist and socialist bent; Democratic Arab Socialist Union, Syrian Democratic People’s Party, Arab Revolutionary Workers Party, Movement of Arab Socialists, Democratic Socialist Arab Ba’ath Party. In 2006, Communist Labour Party joined the coalition. The Rally originally signed the Damascus Declaration, but most members later split from the group. Among the Rally parties, only the SDPP is now active in the SNC, while most others have joined the NCC, a rival opposition alliance.

Syrian Revolution General Commission: Syrian coalition of 40 Syrian opposition groups to unite their efforts during the Syrian civil war that was announced on 19 August 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey.[41]

Syrian National Democratic Council: formed in Paris on 13 November 2011 during the Syrian civil war by Rifaat al-Assad, uncle of Bashar al-Assad. Rifaat al-Assad has expressed wishes to replace Bashar al-Assad with the authoritarian state apparatus intact, and guarantee the safety of regime members, while also making vague allusions to a “transition”.[42]

Syrian Liberation Army: an armed insurgent group fighting against the Syrian government in the Idlib province of Syria.[43] It is a loose coalition of localized forces, mostly composed of armed Syrian civilians who have joined the uprising.[44]

Syrian Liberation Front: Formed in Syria in September-October 2012, the Front brings together numerous armed Islamist Brigades active in the Syrian Civil War, under the command of Suquor al-Sham commander Ahmed Abu Issa. The Front aims to establish a state with an Islamic reference.[45]

Syrian Islamic Front: Formed in Syria on 21 December 2012, the Front brings together 11 armed Islamist rebel groups including Ahrar al-Sham, with the aim of overthrowing the Syrian Government and establishing an Islamic state. [46][47] Many of the Islamist groups are more radical than those that make up the Front to Liberate Syria.

Syrian Moderates Fear Being Edged Out of Uprising

Tom A. Peter

Christian Scientist Monitor

Abdul Rahman leads a collection of moderate Free Syrian Army battalions in Aleppo. He says, “The moderates are the majority of people here in Syria, but now they are decreasing without any support….If it continues like it is now, extremist groups will have a lot of influence after the Assad government falls.” Many Syrians say that conservative Islamist groups are gaining the most ground inside Syria right now.

Alawite Cleric: Assad Duped Us into Sectarian War

An opposition Alawite religious cleric who recently fled to Turkey revealed that “the Alawite community is living in a state of great fear, after we have become aware that the collapse of the al-Assad regime is imminent, which will place us at the mercy of fierce reprisals from the Sunni majority.” “Many Alawite families have already fled their homes in Damascus and returned to their villages in the Latakia countryside.”

The cleric said that he and other Alawite activists had called on the Alawite community “not to become embroiled in killing their Syrian brothers.” The cleric also criticized the Syrian National Council and Syrian National Coalition, saying “the opposition has failed to put forward practical steps to reassure the Alawite community and convince them to abandon the al-Assad family.” (Asharq Al-Awsat-UK)

Excerpt 3 – New York Times

Battle for Aleppo Shows Weaknesses of Both Sides

C. J. Chivers

Col. Abdul Jabbar al-Okaidi, a former Syrian military officer who is now a senior rebel commander in the Aleppo region, said, “Almost all of the military bases and regime forces in Aleppo have been surrounded.” Syrian Army units in the area have been largely cut off from the capital. For weeks they have been yielding ground, contracting under the pressures of persistent rebel attacks and difficulties of resupply.

The Assad regime’s tactic of collective punishment through indiscriminate airstrikes and artillery barrages on residential neighborhoods has earned it only anger and disgust.

Once able to roam freely in its armored columns, the army is confined mostly to Aleppo’s south and west, retaining tenuous control of the airport in the southeast. Syrian Air Force support, almost continuous in the city over the summer, has dwindled. Passing attack jets often dispense decoy flares – a sign that pilots fear the rebels’ portable, heat-seeking missiles. But the army, while weak, is still potent and difficult to dislodge.
