The "Prince of Persia" is a demon mentioned in Daniel 10:20

Daniel 10 is a vision by Daniel of an angel (Michael or Gabriel maybe) having fought with a senior demon called the "King of Persia" and later mentions the "Prince of Persia" (see below)
20 So he said, "Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; 21 but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince.
When I saw a title "Islam is Peace and Love" and signed by the name of a demon, I said "yes, makes sense."
Moslems have been oppressing others since the very beginning of their reign of terror, over 1000 years before the US was founded.
The great tragedy to me about Islam is that people born into it are brainwashed into becoming evil in the name of Allah, when they probably would not be evil given a decent upbringing.
Converts to Islam consciously chose a palpable evil to base their lives on, but born Moslems have a partial excuse. Their moral compasses are warped by Islam from birth.
I honestly pray for God to have mercy on born Moslems, because He put them in that mess, but adult converts to Islam are quite a different matter to me.
Congressman Ellison, for example, says he initially converted to Islam "for political reasons"
I say (not him) that that meant he hated whites and the United States.
