Now this is an interesting Biblical Reference. Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was responding to President Bush's State of the Union speech when he accused the US of being "the world's primary state sponsor of terror". In addition to this, he made an obscure Biblical reference that paints the US as one of the characters of Biblical End-times prophecy:
""America is like of the big heads of a seven-headed dragon," Khamenei said. "The brains directing it are Zionist and non-Zionist capitalists who brought Bush to power to meet their own interests."
He said all US presidents since the 1979 Islamic Revolution have sought to overthrow Iran's ruling establishment.
"Bush is the fifth US president seeking to uproot the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic of Iran. (Jimmy) Carter, (Ronald) Reagan and father Bush and (Bill) Clinton failed. This president will also fail," Khamenei was quoted as saying.
In calling the US a "Seven-headed Dragon" Khameni is accusing it of being the Beast of Prophecy - the Antichrist in particular. According to some Satanists:
"One of the symbols that's very diligently used by Satanists and black magicians is the seven-headed dragon - the Antichrist. The dragon exists as a symbolic being in almost every culture in the world. The Midgard serpent in Norse mythology, A'pep in Egyptian mythology, Antichrist - the great beast, whose number is 666 in the Judeo-Christian mythology. The best know shape of this dragon today is as the "Kundalini" of Indian magic and mythology. This energy is the vital force of man, strongly connected with the sexual energy that flows up through the central pillar of man - the spine. On its journey up from the central abyss, the force rises and makes the individual increasingly deified, or to use Greek terminology, "Daemonified!" It's all about letting one's own vital force not just come alive, but to flow freely and grow upward so that one eventually reaches the highest stage and thus becomes one's own god - one's own king; the highest goal of all true Satanists, both magically and materially."
According to the Book of Revelation:
"3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born."
This Beast's victim is typically interpreted to be Israel. Hardcore Icke-followers, of course, will interpret this as an Islamic leader calling out the Reptilians. Others' however will go along with what this guy says: that the seven heads represent the G-7:
"The question now becomes, how can there be ten ‘horns’ and only seven ‘heads’? The seven ‘heads’ are today, what is commonly called the group of seven,
‘G-7’, the world's most industrialized nations. They are Great Britain, Italy, Canada, the United States, France, Germany and Japan. "
John Daniel, author of "Scarlet and the Beast" has this to say about the US:
"The Apostle John observed a different aspect of the “little horn.” The Roman Numerals (MDCCLXXVI) at the base of the pyramid represent the year 1776. Revelation 13:18 calculates the numeric value of the “Mark of the Beast” as 666. These six underlined numerals, which add up to 666, are the extent of the ancient Roman Numerals. “M” was a later addition. No other year but 1776 can arrange the numerals in the exact order of the Mark of the Beast."
