Both faiths require it to be recreated for the Messiah to come.
Even funnier is that in the Bible New Babylon needs to be damaged then utterly destroyed before Christ arrives. Do you think that refers to Baghdad? No it doesnt as New Babylon is shockingly one of the town lands making up New York City. 9/11 was the damage and soon New York will be utterly destroyed.
In the Bible the Anti-Chist will be the leader of a revised Hoy Roman Empire. The EU fits that description however first it needs to become a nation. Is that the true cause of the economic problems being experieced?
In the Quran the start of the end will come when the armies of the Anti-Christ attack Syria. The peoples that originated from ancient South Russia, which are Iranians but could include Russians too, will lead an attack against Israel wiping it off the face of the Earth and will engage the forces of the Anti-Christ. This is the point that the destruction of New York will come probably by nuclear warfare.
Anyway the Quran says that Iran (and possible Russia) will get massacred by the Anti-Christ but will hold his armies off from destroying Syria long enough for Christ to arrive. The 12th Inman will be revealed to be the Syrian leader, he will ally with Christ and both will destroy the Anti-Christ.
I first wrote this here before the problems in Syria started.
