Tunisia’s likely prime minister made an interesting public admission:

Tunisia’s Islamists hail arrival of the ‘sixth caliphate’
The Islamist politician likely to become Tunisia’s first democratically elected prime minister has alarmed liberals and secularists by claimig the arrival of the “sixth caliphate”, a controversial term for a Muslim empire.

Leader’s Islamist view sparks secular outcry

Hamadi Jebeli, the secretary-general of Ennahda, the moderate Islamist party that romped to victory in last month’s elections, told a rally in the city of Sousse: ”My brothers, you are at a historic moment in a new cycle of civilisation, God willing. We are in sixth caliphate, God willing.”

Tunisian Pledges a New Caliphate

Secular Tunisians are expressing concerns after a leader of the country’s Islamist Al-Nahda movement said Tunisia’s emerging government marks “the Sixth Righteous Caliphate.”

The fifth caliphate, an Islamic imperial governing system, was abolished by Turkish secular Kemal Ataturk in 1924.  http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.10839/pub_detail.asp

The implementation of the sixth caliphate has long been the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Ennahda party, which recently won in Tunisia, is related to the Muslim Brotherhood.  I recently warned that the Tunisian election was going to “more towards an Islamic state” and “that the election in Tunisia will ultimately help groups like the Muslim Brotherhood” (Muslim Brotherhood Scores a Gain in Tunisia’s Election).

Specifically notice what the website of the Muslim Brotherhood wants:

The Muslim Brethren…believe that the caliphate is a symbol of Islamic Union and an indication of the bonds between the nations of Islam. They see the caliphate and its re-establishment as a top priority, subsequently; an association of Muslims people should be set up, which would elect the imam”. (zhyntativ. HASAN AL-BANNA AND HIS POLITICAL THOUGHT OF ISLAMIC BROTHERHOOD. IkhwanWeb, May 13, 2008. http://www.ikhwanweb.com/article.php?id=17065 viewed 09/22/11)

Notice what Wikipedia reports about the size of the caliphate that the Muslim Brotherhood wants to accomplish:

In the group’s belief, the Quran and Sunnah constitute a perfect way of life and social and political organization that God has set out for man. Islamic governments must be based on this system and eventually unified in a Caliphate. The Muslim Brotherhood’s goal, as stated by Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna was to reclaim Islam’s manifest destiny, an empire, stretching from Spain to Indonesia.

While I do not believe that they will get Spain, certainly the area from Morocco to possibly Afghanistan should be considered to be in play, perhaps even involving Pakistan and others.

We in the Living Church of God suspect that the Muslim Brotherhood may be part of making end time events happen:

The virtual “tsunami” of Middle East and North African nations overthrowing their secular rulers is coming along day by day even as I write. This—as we have explained—could clear the way for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic extremists to take over much of the Middle East. Such an event would “prepare the way” for the coming “Mahdi”—the Islamist religious/political leader who will no doubt become the biblically prophesied “King of the South” (Daniel 11:40). He will probably lead in the provocation of the “King of the North” described in that same inspired prophecy in Daniel 11. And this will set in motion the final chain of events leading up to “Armageddon,” and then Jesus Christ’s return as King of kings (Revelation 11:15)! (Meredith RC. Tomorrow’s World subscriber letter, May 9, 2011)

…the Bible predicts that at the appointed time, a King of the North and a King of the South with rise. Various statements that Barack Obama has made suggest that he will implement policies that will likely help lead to the multi-national formations that will ultimately have these kings…Interestingly, within Islam, there is a belief that someone who sounds like the biblical “King of the South” of Daniel 11, who they tend to call the Mahdi or 12th Imam will participate in a deal like the one in Daniel 9:27…the Bible predicts the rise in the end time of a Future King of the South—and this person may be the one that Muslims will consider to be their prophesied “Mahdi.” …“the Muslim World League issued a fatwa in October of 1976 commanding Sunni Muslims to believe in the concept of an Islamic Savior called the Mahdi.”…Shi’ites also would do well to recognize that just because someone may claim to be the final Imam (or Mahdi), does not mean that God will agree that he should be followed. Neither Sunnis nor Shi’ites should support one who will appear to possibly be the final Imam in the next decade; whoever claims to be will be defeated soundly (Daniel 11:40-43). (Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, Nazarene Books, 2009).

The Obama Administration has been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood in many Arab nations (see Muslim Brotherhood Rising Up, Pan-Islamic State Will Too and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Satisfies US Government) .  The Muslim Brotherhood wants an imam to be selected.  This individual would be expected to rule the “sixth caliphate.”

Declaring that he now hopes to be part of the beginning of the sixth caliphate Hamadi Jebeli is claiming that he believes that enough has been done for the establishment of a new-multi-national Islamic confederation to start to form.  Whether it has or not will be seen, but certainly the groundwork for such a confederation has been laid.

Now, some of the leadership in Tunisia may or may not now back-off from Hamadi Jebeli’s statements, but the reality is that when the right Arab leader rises up (the final king of the South of Daniel 11:40), I strongly suspect that those in Tunisia will support him.

And the public statement by Hamadi Jebeli clearly shows that this idea is something that he and Muslims support.

Watch (Mark 13:37).
