I'm not sure. To be honest, I'm still not convinced that prophecy points very clearly towards any specific group.
But let me offer this as a possibility; I don't know if you've seen the threads where I suggest there are two
persecutions in the Revelation
timeline. There is the main persecution by the Beast, but before that there is the preliminary persecution which produces the martyrs seen "under the
altar" at the fifth seal, So what about Islam as possibly getting involved in that first persecution?
As I said in the OP, the problem with finding "666" in places is that the number can be "found" in so many different places that it becomes
impossible to choose between them. In effect, they cancel each other out. That's why I went for the line that it represents humanity, and a focussing
of religion upon something human.
