869 women in Pakistan were killed, in the name of honor, in 2013… ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/05/27/photo-pakistani-woman-stoned-to-death-because-she-married-the-man-she-loved/?tid=sm_fb
Honor killings are big in the middle east; which is where the Antichrist will rise out of.
- Daniel 11, he comes out of the 4 divided kingdoms of Alexander the Great, Assyria which is now Syria, parts of Iraq, Turkey
- Rev. 17, he comes out of the 7th (empire) and into the 8th & into perdition. The Turkish Ottoman Empire is the last empire, and lasted the longest of the Empires Daniel spoke of
- He’s called the “Assyrian,” the King of Tyre (Lebanon), the Pharaoh of Egypt, and other names
- In Dan 11, he comes out of the “north.” Turkey is the north of Israel
Below is a good reference for origins of the AC, but this writer believes he comes out of Syria, which is incorrect due to the scriptures cited above.
Also Isaiah 17 says Damascus and most of northern Syria will be flattened and never inhabited again (many believe this will happen soon with the Syrian war).
