in response to reader comment: I think we are in agreement

Regarding who HaMashiach will defend, the references are to the following sons of Israel:

7:3) Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 7:4) And I heard the number of them who were sealed: [and there were] sealed a hundred [and] forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

7:5) Of the tribe of Judah [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad [were] sealed twelve thousand.

7:6) Of the tribe of Asher [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Naphtalim [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses [were] sealed twelve thousand.

7:7) Of the tribe of Simeon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Isachar [were] sealed twelve thousand.

7:8) Of the tribe of Zabulon [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph [were] sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin [were] sealed twelve thousand.

7:9) After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and languages, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

7:10) And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God who sitteth upon the throne, and to the Lamb.

7:11) And all the angels stood around the throne, and [about] the elders and the four living beings, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped God,

7:12) Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, [be] to our God for ever and ever. Amen.

12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

14:1) And I looked, and lo, a lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred [and] forty four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. 14:2) And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 14:3) And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred [and] forty four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth.

Do not mince the words or their intent, that the return of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ is to be heralded by the faithful Jewish remnant who will point to the true returning King of kings and witness against those who fell for the deceit and blasphemy of the one who tried to take the mantle of rulership from the LORD. So, yes, it can be seen that the Muslims will fight the Jews, but only until the return of Jesus Christ.

Note that the reference is to those who are the remnant of her seed, Israel, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ, according to the Hebrew Scriptures. If one thinks that this is more true that what is written in the Quran then watch out; for that is apostate thinking for a Muslim, to believe as closely as this that Jesus Christ returns, not as the al-Mahdi, but as the Savior of the Jewish nation.

If you think that Jesus Christ is the returning LORD of Israel, then, and only then, would we be in agreement.
