I p 185 (cIII-60)
A "young dark man" will arise as a leader in a Third World country;
his main goal is to unite the other Third World countries to do
battle with the superpowers. The area of conflict will be in eastern
Europe and the Middle East, particularly around the Adriatic and the
Caspian seas and the eastern Mediterranean. No definite winner will
emerge but the strife will help set the stage for the Antichrist.
Some prophecies in the Bible refer to events in this region (Israel
will be involved).
