Dan 7:8 I considered the (ten) horns, and, behold, there came up, (in 616 AD, when Mohammed orated the Koran), among them (an eleventh), another little horn, (Islam), before whom there were, (had been), three of the first (ten) horns, (1: The Undivided Empire: under Diocletian: [until 305AD]; 2: Western Roman Empire: until 476 AD]; 3: Eastern Roman-Byzantine Empire, [until 1453 AD, when Ottoman invaded]), and (Islam) plucked up by the roots (the last remaining of these three, the Eastern Roman Orthodox Christian Byzantine Empire which fell at the hands of the Ottoman Empire): and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, (the seer, the Prophet Mohammed), and a mouth, (in the oral recitation of The Koran: 616 AD: [Rev 13:18]), speaking great things: [Rev 13:6].

Dan 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of (Mohammed), the great words (from the Koran), which the horn, (Islam), spake: I beheld even till (the Eastern Roman Empire), the beast (of the Byzantine Empire in 1453 AD), was slain, (after 380AD, when all Rome had become Christianized, and Paganism had been slain and outlawed), and his body, (remaining until 1453AD, the Orthodox Christian Byzantine Empire), destroyed, and given to the burning flame (at the hands of the Islamic Ottoman Empire in 1453AD).

Dan 7:12 (Ignoring the Roman Empire for the moment), As concerning the rest of the beasts, (three of these four great beasts, [1] Babylon: [650 AD], [2] Persia-Mede: [651AD], [3] Greece: under the Ottoman Empire [1453-1922AD]), they had their dominion taken away (in Islamic conversion or political appropriation): yet their lives were prolonged, (from the placing of the Abomination that makes the Temple mount in Jerusalem desolate, in 690 AD), for a season, (@225 years), and time, (1000 years until the end the Battle of Megiddo, 20 September 1918).

The founding and rise of the 11th horn:[Dan 11:36-39; Dan 7:8, Rev 6:1-8]

Dan. 11:36 And the king, (the governor of Syria, MUAWIYA I, a Sunni who came to power after the murder of Ali), shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, (Trinity: Rev 3:12), and shall prosper till the indignation (of the Islamic Ottoman Empire) be accomplished (in 1453AD): for that, (the Islamic Caliphate), is determined shall be done.

Dan. 11:37 Neither shall he, (the governor of Syria, MUAWIYA I, a Sunni who came to power after the murder of Ali: [15 September 601 to 29 January 661 AD]), regard the God of his fathers, (Ishmael and his twelve sons), nor the desire of women (whom he will suppress), nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

Dan. 11:38 But, (the governor of Syria, MUAWIYA I, a Sunni who came to power after the murder of Ali: [15 September 601 to 29 January 661 AD]), in his estate shall he honour the God of forces, (Allah): and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

Dan. 11:39 Thus shall he, (the governor of Syria, MUAWIYA I, a Sunni who came to power after the murder of Ali: [15 September 601 to 29 January 661 AD]), shall do in the most strong holds (of the whole Middle East) with a strange god, (called Allah), whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them, (the Muslims), to rule over many, (IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE which shall follow), and shall divide the land for gain, (which shall include Israel).

The seven headed beast arises from the dead in The Renaissance:

Rev 13:1 And I stood (before the tides of change), upon the sand of the sea, (seeing all history: [Dan 7:2]), and saw a beast, (the molten calf of Gold: [Ex 32:4; Dan 3:1]), rise up, (in The Renaissance) out of the sea (of ancient history: [Dan 7:2]), having seven heads,  (those of the seven major empires of the Western World  Culture: [Dan 2:31-33]): 

1), Egypt, (2), Assyria, (3), Babylon: [Dan 8:1] (4), Persia/Mede: [Dan 8:20], (5), Greece: [Dan 8:21], (6), Rome; [Dan 7:19], and (7), the whole of Western Culture to follow: [Dan 7:23]): and ten horns (of political power in their turn), aand upon his horns, (which are the ten sequences of European leadership which followed the Empires), ten crowns (of national origin: [Dan 7:12,20]:

(1. Undivided Empire: under Diocletian::[305 AD],

2. Western Roman Empire: (Romulu s Augustus):[to 476 AD],

3. Eastern Roman: Byzantine Christian Empire, [until 1453 AD, when it was invaded by a little 11th horn, and became part of the Syrian expansion to be called The Ottoman Empire: {Dan 7:8}] 

4. Charlemagne, [800 - 1000 AD] 

5. Holy Roman Empire, [1200 AD-1453 AD] 

6. Italy, [Renaissance, 16th century] 

7. Spain, [17th century] 

8. France, [18th-19th Century] 

9. Britain, [19th-20th century] 

10. Nazi Germany, [20th century]) 

 and upon his heads the name of blasphemy, (Whoredom). 


Rev 13:2   And the beast, (the molten calf of Gold: [Ex 32:4]) which I saw was like unto a leopard, (or Greece: [Dan 7:6]), and his (two) feet were as the (two) feet of a bear, (Persia/Mede: [Dan 7:5]), and his mouth as the mouth (proclaiming worship of this beast, Mammon: [Dan 3:4-7) of a lion, (that is, Babylon: [Dan 4:16;7:4]): and the dragon, (cultural Paganism: [Rev 20:2]), gave him his (sexually seductive, matriarchal: [Isa 3:23-26]) power, and his (Political) seat, and great authority.

 


Rev 13:3   And I saw one of his heads, (The Roman Empire: [Dan 7:7]), as it were wounded to death (by Christian conversion: [Rev 6:13-17]); and his deadly wound was healed (in the Renaissance of the 15th Century): and all the world wondered after the (resurrection of this) beast.


Rev 13:4   And they, (the Western Europeans), worshipped (Paganism, again), the dragon, (the pre-Christian Satanism of enculturated sexual excess and the Devilish exploitation by Feminist Mysticism: [Rev 2:10-13; Rev 20: 2; Rev 17:3]), which gave (cultural and economic) power unto the beast, (i.e.; the Western World): and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast, (the revived Empire of Western Culture?), Who is able to make war with him (who colonizes the world)?

The Seven Headed Beast in 616 AD:


Rev 13:5 And, (in 1440 AD) there was given (to the revived beast), unto him, (through Johann Gutenberg), a (secular) mouth (by means of the invention of the Printing Press), speaking great things, (uniformly disseminating knowledge which aided in the propagation of Luther's Ninety-Five Theses, the availability and the distribution of the scriptures to the common people, and other works of the Protestant Reformation) and, (also), blasphemies (of the European rediscovery of the Greek and Roman classics that helped stimulate the Renaissance, which restarted the promiscuous sexual resurgence in growing towns and city life); and power was given unto him (the wounded beast, in the 11th horn of Islam), to continue (from 661AD, the inception of the), forty and two months, (i.e.; 30 days X 42 = 1260 years, from 662AD-1922AD: [from MUAWIYA B. ABI SUFYAN (c.602-680), the founder of the Umayyad dynasty, ultimately replacing the Eastern Roman Empire at Constantinople with The Ottoman Empire: 1299 to 1922]).


Rev 13:6 And he, (Islam), opened his (blasphemous) mouth, (in 616 AD with The Koran), in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle (with construction of the Dome of the Rock), and them, (the saints), that dwell in heaven. 


Rev 13:7 And it, (The Koran of 616 AD: [Rev 6:2]), was given unto him, (Islam), to make war with the saints (proclaiming Jesus Christ was NOT the son of God, nor had he died and been resurrected), and to overcome them (in a succession of conquests over Middle Eastern paganistic societies, one after the other: [Rev 6:4]): and power (in Theology) was given him, (this secular economic-political apparatus: [Rev 6:6]), over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 

Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, (Allah, the god of forces: [Dan 11:36:40]), whose names are not written in the book of life (the people saved) of the Lamb (i.e.; Truth), slain (by liars) from the foundation of the world.

THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL
Sociologist: Sir John Glubb born in 1897

The Arab decline
In the first half of the ninth century, Baghdad enjoyed its High Noon as the greatest and the richest city in the world. In 861, however, the reigning Khalif (caliph), Mutawakkil, was murdered by his Turkish mercenaries, who set up a military dictatorship, which lasted for some thirty years.
During this period the empire fell apart, the various dominions and provinces each assuming virtual independence and seeking its own interests.

Baghdad, lately the capital of a vast empire, found its authority limited to Iraq alone.
The works of the contemporary historians of Baghdad in the early tenth century are still available.
They deeply deplored the degeneracy of the times in which they lived, emphasising particularly the indifference to religion, the increasing materialism and the laxity of sexual morals. They lamented also the corruption of the officials of the government and the fact that politicians always seemed to amass large fortunes while they were in office.

The historians commented bitterly on the extraordinary influence acquired by popular singers over young people, resulting in a decline in sexual morality.
The ‘pop’ singers of Baghdad accompanied their erotic songs on the lute, an instrument resembling the modern guitar. In the second half of the tenth century, as a result, much obscene sexual language came increasingly into use, such as would not have been tolerated in an earlier age. Several khalifs issued orders banning ‘pop’ singers from the capital, but within a few years they always returned. An increase in the influence of women in public life has often been associated with national decline.

The later Romans complained that, although Rome ruled the world, women ruled Rome. In the tenth century, a similar tendency was observable in the Arab Empire, the women demanding admission to the professions hitherto monopolised by men. ‘What,’ wrote the contemporary historian, Ibn Bessam, ‘have the professions of clerk, tax-collector or preacher to do with women?'

These occupations have always been limited to men alone. Many women practised law, while others obtained posts as university professors. There was an agitation for the appointment of female judges, which, however, does not appear to have succeeded.
Soon after this period, government and public order collapsed, and foreign invaders overran the country. The resulting increase in confusion and violence made it unsafe for women to move unescorted in the streets, with the result that this feminist movement collapsed.
The disorders following the military takeover in 861, and the loss of the empire, had played havoc with the economy. At such a moment, it might have been expected that everyone would redouble their efforts to save the country from bankruptcy, but nothing of the kind occurred. Instead, at this moment of declining trade and financial stringency, the people of Baghdad introduced a five-day week.
When I first read these contemporary descriptions of tenth-century Baghdad, I could scarcely believe my eyes. I told myself that this must be a joke! The descriptions might have been taken out of The Times today. The resemblance of all the details was especially breathtaking—the break-up of the empire, the abandonment of sexual morality, the ‘pop’ singers with their guitars, the entry of women into the professions, the five-day week. I would not venture to attempt an explanation! There are so many mysteries about human life which are far beyond our comprehension.

During the decline of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century, educated women within the elites of Istanbul began to organise themselves as feminists.
With the Tanzimat reforms, improving women's conditions was considered as part of a wider modernisation effort. Ottoman women's movement began to demand rights.[8] They fought to increase women's access to education and paid work, to abolish polygamy, and the peçe, an Islamic veil. Early feminists published woman magazines in different languages and established different organizations dedicated to the advancement of women.[9] The first women's association in Turkey, the Ottoman Welfare Organization of Women, was founded in 1908 and became partially involved in the Young Turks Movement. Writers and politicians such as Fatma Aliye Topuz, Nezihe Muhiddin and Halide Edip Adıvar also joined the movement.[9] In her novels, Halide Edip Adıvar criticised the low social status of Turkish women.
