Flag of the Taliban
About two years ago, the Al-Qaeda linked Taliban threatened France with an attack (see Taliban Threatens France). Now, the Saudis are warning France that they have learned that Al-Qaeda is planning to attack Europe, and possibly France itself:
PARIS — Saudi intelligence officials have informed France that Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen may be planning an attack in France or Europe, the French interior minister said Sunday. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/18/world/europe/18france.html?partner=rss&emc=rss
One area that many Protestant prophecy watchers have overlooked is the fact that the Bible indicates that the end-time Muslim and European powers will cooperate for a while (Daniel 11:27).
Islamic prophecy also tells of a similar deal–a deal that the Europeans will apparently break (cf. Daniel 9:27) .
So, events where the Muslims cooperate with the Europeans are consistent with such prophecies. And we may expect to see more such cooperation.

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans (the Hindus may have some predictions for the next decade as well). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2010, 2011, or 2012? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
