Prophecy Sign: The nations of North Africa - King of the South
North Africa will become increasingly radicalized with new alliances formed which will come to play in both the Ezekiel 38/39 battle of Gog/Magog, (Cush & Put), and in the King of the South alliance of Daniel 11 which will battle the armies of Antichrist. It will be at that time when the Antichrist will sweep through North Africa, conquering this alliance.
He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites in submission. Daniel 11:42-43 NIV
Islamic State spreading into northern Africa, alarming U.S.
In its war to create a caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State is opening a front in North Africa, where affiliated militants are wreaking havoc in eastern Libya and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula — presenting a complex challenge for Washington and its allies in the region. Through its savvy use of social media and slick production of recruitment videos, the Islamic State — also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL — is attracting a growing number of individual jihadis to its harsh interpretation of Islamic, or Shariah, law. “ISIL’s stated goal of expanding its caliphate and its adherence to a strict form of Shariah has definitely resonated with a collection of extremists across North Africa, who appear to be mimicking ISIL’s rhetoric and brutality,” said a U.S. intelligence official who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss security issues freely.
ISIS gaining a toehold in Libya, experts say
With Libya engulfed in chaos, the town of Derna in the east of the largely lawless country is emerging as a new stronghold for ISIS, experts say. The North African state has been wracked by instability since the overthrow of autocratic leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, providing a fertile ground for Islamic extremists. ISIS fighters have already swept across Iraq and Syria, and their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi recently boasted of vows of allegiance from militants in Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
