Let’s cut to the chase and describe in a nutshell what is about to take place in Jerusalem as outlined in my book: Jerusalem Caliphate and the Third Jihad.
Here is the literal interpretation of Daniel 11:45:
"And he (the king of the north—the leader of Turkey) shall plant (place or establish) the tabernacles of his palace (a religious/political entity—Islamic Caliphate) between the seas (Mediterranean and Dead Seas) in the glorious holy mountain (Jerusalem—Mount of Olives) . . ."
Now I don’t expect you to accept this interpretation without your own thorough study of the biblical text. However, if you allow for a literal interpretation for the entire eleventh chapter of Daniel, I believe that you will see that this is a reasonable explanation of this verse.

Just listen to what Recep Tayyip Erdogan (current king of the north) has been saying recently. It certainly sounds like he wants to fulfill the ambitions of those Islamic clerics and officials heard on those three short video clips on the Home Page who are saying they want the Islamic Caliphate to be established in Jerusalem. Just to be clear, I am not saying that Erdogan will necessarily be the person who will be the king of the north when this prophecy is fulfilled. It will depend on whether or not he is the leader of Turkey at the time the Caliphate is set up in Jerusalem. The recent developments in Turkey may prove to be significant in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Click here for a well-written report on the coup that just took place.

"During the inauguration of the 55th airport in Hakkari Province, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for the re-establishment of the Ottoman Empire. . . During the ceremony, both Turkish leaders spoke of their desire to conquer Jerusalem and to re-establish the Ottoman Empire.
"He (Erdogan) proclaimed himself to be the reincarnation of Saladin, who will kick whom he perceives to be the modern day crusaders out of Jerusalem by uniting the Muslim world behind him by hinting at the re-establishment of the Ottoman Empire: 'I am sure that the great commander Saladin is bringing together all of the peoples of the Middle East into the one army that defeated the Crusaders. Saladin is currently witnessing what we are doing here spiritually. I was in his spiritual presence and I am addressing him here in Hakkari with the mighty men, be it eastern, brave south-eastern, valiant Anatolian in Old Turkey.'
"'Jerusalem is for the Muslims and not for Israel,' Erdogan added. 'Why should we continue to be friends with those that stomped their boots on the Temple Mount? They insist that we have to be friends? I say, we will not.' Erdogan promised to follow in Saladin’s footsteps: 'They all promise you O Saladin, if you united the brothers in the Middle East, so will we. Saladin said ‘Jerusalem is not for the Crusaders.’ Saladin witnessed this. Allah witnesses this. One people, one flag, one nation and one state!'"

"Today President Erdogan of Turkey gave a speech that no one in the English media is reporting. The Anadolu Agency, which is like the ‘Reuters’ of Turkey, reported on it and several Arabic sources have now picked up on it. And the speech he gave included a few lines where he talked about invading Jerusalem; 'Unfortunately we the Muslims lost our aim to head towards Jerusalem. The water of our eyes froze making us blind, and our hearts that was destined to beat for Jerusalem is now instead conditioned for rivalry being in a state of war with each other.'" http://tinyurl.com/zxjyesj
