Commonality of Islam with ultimate false religion

The following is a list of parallels between Islam and the ultimate false religion (that of the Antichrist).

Rev 13:2 "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."

Islam's initial expansion was quite rapid, like the predation of a leopard; its rule has been as brutal (to Christians and Jews in Muddle East, and initially to all natives--even those who became Muslims--of Sub-continent) like an angry bear, plunder-greedy like lion (an animal which has been observed stealing the kills of other animals, especially cheetahs--as well as oft attempting to steal those of leopards),and it worships a false god (dragon)

Rev 13:4 "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
This certainly parallels the attitude of many Muslims that theirs is the ultimate-and-best religion

Rev 13:7 "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

paralleled in Muslim rule over non-Muslims, especially in Sub-continent as well as eastern Europe and Spain

Rev 13:15 "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
Second half paralleled in Islam's many forcible conversions with the alternative being a grotesque execution (not even paralleled by Nazis)

Rev 13:16-17 "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
paralleled in negative sense, as non-Muslims under Muslim rule oft had to wear coloured patches of cloth visible on right sleeve or headgear--so they would not receive any services from (or enjoy rights/privileges of) Muslims.
Rev 17:1-2 "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
paralleled in commerce for oil, much of which comes from Muddle East--and the kowtowing of many nations to these nations

Rev 17:16 "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire."
paralleled in Islam's own internal hatreds: Shia-Sunni mutual loathing; post WW2 oppressions of Baloch and Bangla by Pakistan, Daza and Fur by Sudan

Rev 18:7 "How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow."
again, paralleled in the attitude of many Muslims about their religion--including the "apron-strings" mentality that because they have been Muslims for multiple generations, it implies an automatic passticket to heaven (extremely bad logic, as it can be extended to the point that all descended from "righteous" Noah should receive such a passticket--which would mean that no post-flood human could possibly go to hell)

Rev 18:24 "And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth."
paralleled by the extreme amount of bloodshed done by Islam, which exceeds all other religions save communism

Plus the historical fact that the first attempts at "unity" religions (one-world religions) all involved mixing nother religion and Islam:
  • Kabir-panth (Kabir was found abandoned by a newly-married Muslim weaver, and raised as a Muslim--but had several Hindu ideas prior to age 10 which perplexed his adoptive father, and Hindu neighbours); now considered as Hindu by Indian census "leftover" method
  • Sikhism, founded as an attempt to unite Hinduism and Islam; the attempt failed during the time of Mughal Emperor Jehangir (who had the Sikh's guru murdered judicially), pushing Sikhs closer to Hindus (in Punjab, there are many Hindu families where the firstborn son has been dedicated/raised a Sikh--but no parallel Muslim families; also reflected in Sikh names, 90% of which are also found amongst Hindu males, the other 10% Sikh-only)
  • Din-eh Elahi, a religion started by Jehangir's father Akbar, and only extant during Akbar's time

  • the Antichrist and his "false prophet" are able to work counterfeit miracles--which Mohammed could not
  • the "marking" to identify followers of the Antichrist's religion is NOT by absence of one; also, the "marking" is quite permanent (those with mark cannot get God's seal, and vice-versa), where people CAN convert to Islam or away (though Muslims don't like to acknowledge the idea, even threatening those who think of it with a death-sentence--ironically, that only reveals more clearly the falseness of Islam) from it.
