After 1979 Revolution, 'Gog and Magog' have been continously considered as 'the East and the West'. The famous Iranian Slogan of 'Nah Shargi, Nah Garbi' (No East, No West) shows all militarized, political and economical movements of Islamists are configured by the 'Gog and Magog (Yajooj and Majooj) Axis'; actually George Bush notion of 'Axis of Evil' was a less complicated modification of 'Gog and Magog (Yajooj-Majooj) Axis' already suggested by Shia Islamists, and oversimplified re-modification which can be easily digested by the masses.
We remark that the name of Rosh is not to be met with anywhere among the sons of Japheth. We know, however, that the first Czar of Great Muscovie was called Rosh, and that it was from him the empire derived the name it now bears.

The biblical reference to Magog and Gog appear to be in Ezekiel 38 which is the beginning of the year long (Isa 34:8) day of the Lord which follows the 7-year tribulation period. Gog is the only name listed in Ezekiel 38:1-6 which is not listed as a grandson of Noah in Genesis 10. Gog is a demonic principality who is the head demonic influence of the land of Magog (where the ancient Scythians lived in Northern Iran and in the Causasus mountain areas). We know he is not human because "Gog" shows up again 1000 years after this at the end of the millenial period in Rev 20:8 for one last battle.
