That the nations were divided among the Sons Of God ( Angels) and that some of them became/passed themselves off as gods to men.
The notion of the whole world being under Satan makes more sense when we realized that it was the nation of Rome that was given to the Angel we call "satan".
My point is that it does seem that the Arab/ME nations influenced under the religion of Islam could be being influenced by the "god" of that nation.
It makes some passages make more sense ( The different princes of the nations in Daniel for example).
What does the bible reveal on this matter in Eph 6:10-13? There are principalities and powers and ruling host over geographic locations. For example, God's angelic messenger wrestled with the Prince of Persia and was delayed a bit in giving Daniel an answer. The Prince of Persia would be symbolized by a bear type entity.
What I find interesting, is according Pangaea Continent Maps Plate Tectonic maps, the area roughly from Cyprus, to Canaan, Edom, Moab, Midina which also connects to area of UR along the mouth of the Euphrates area in a broad straight line. In Military terms, an army forms a line and advances. As an army advances in battle line they gain territory and set up shop there and move on latter to the next goal. Lining up from UR/Medina you have the serpent dragon mixed with lion deity worship and in Moab - Lion-serpent-bull deities symbolized. In Edom bear and leopard deities symbolized and Canaan/Cyprus - Leopard and bear deities symbolized.
According to the pagan myth, the serpent dragon rebelled against the head sky god and overthrew him and came to earth to have man serve him in exchange for gaining wisdom and knowledge. There were three over beings that came with him as well to help in this endeavor. These taught how to work with metals and Iron was forged in the serpent dragon area.
The role of the three other beings were to have their cohorts feed the serpent dragon men through enticing them to kill each other for various reasons. They would influence the action pf people to do so in various ways and make people feel good and justified in do so even through the use of perversion and various multiple sex acts (diseases) too. The reason was to entice the great sky god into action so that the new serpent dragon overthrows the great sky god in one final conflict by entrapment. That is the basic template and there are variations in it as well too confusing to go into now,
The Lion symbolized deity (Nergal) allied with the serpent dragon made 7 ruling Sebbitti. These ruling Sebbitti were also known as the ruling/leading Watchers mentioned in the book of Enoch and are also identified with the Nephilim in the bible. The bear deity had a council of 6, and Leopard had 7 helpers or rulers connected to the watchers. These 20 were the ruling watchers.
They aided killing off raucous, over-populous people and wildlife. They create turmoil, death, disease, by means of pleasure and violence. The Sebbitti rulers also aided Nergal’s sending people into the netherworld.

All this is interesting in that what you have appear is an invasion of spiritual beings who desire man to serve there need for power. They formed a line and advanced to Euphrates valley and along the Nile, and then slowly worldwide spreading the same story lines in pagan myths, changing names having countries use the symbols of the Sun disk, Leopard, Lion, Bear, Eagles, Birds, various animals as a national animal symbol, even today.
The Euphrates river valley line you have the same pantheon appear in the Chaldean (UR - Lion/serpent), Assyrian (Bear/Leopard), and Hittite (Leopard) symbolized deities. Along the Nile, the same...
It appears that these are the four rulers of darkness over all countries, today, along with their helpers or legions. The Medes/Persian Empire had the bear deity known as Verethragna / The Persian god of victory and the personification of aggressive triumph. See...

Assyrian Empire had the Bear and the Leopard deities and switched to the Leopard...
History: This Deity had other names such as Dionysus/Greece and Set/Egyptian and was the Assyrian/Babylonia symbol for Nimrod who had a chariot/car pulled by Leopards, and Ishtar who also rode a leopard, lion, etc, into battle Also the Assyrian form of Dionysus is also associated with the Leopard.
Ishtar also known as Astrate rode a Leopard and other beasts into battle (lion, bear leopard, dove, etc). She was the goddess of battle, sex, seduction, occultic arts, and fertility. Her origins appeared in Canaan, Edom, as Anat and Syria as Astarte and then about everywhere else as Ishtar. Anat pictures her killing the enemies of Ba’al Hadad, lopping off heads, torturing enemies, and wading knee deep in blood. (See Wikipedia Anat online)
Astarte uses the crescent Moon symbol, denoting wisdom, cunning, writing, trickster, violence, disorder, fieriness, watching, swift stealthy attacks and also known for two horns facing downwards or upwards – a reverse crescent moon shape or two horns of the moon god of conquest demanding submission.
Interesting note is that Nimrod was known as one who subdues leopards to pull his chariot car to hunt men, commanded compete submission is also associated with Assyria and Babylon. The Assyrian Dionysus is also related with the Leopard and its priests used its skin to dress in. Also same as Edom’s Deity – Qos/Quos/Kaush – expander of culture – related to Moon god and symbol is of the star and crescent and demands total submission… or else! In fact all three of these beings are related or allied with the Moon god in some way whose symbol is the Crescent Moon and star - the current Islamic symbol.
So what else can I say? It appears these beings govern nations with one goal, to bring forth the serpent dragon into one last conflict with the great sky god by using humanity as mere pawns. Therefore, yes all nations are under the influence of these beings. Look at Iran (home of the Bear) who is allied with Russian bear and the little bear Syria! Area of old Assyria they use Leopard and fighting rooster style fighting tactics by a thousand cuts of death, the beheadings, and brutral acts upon a population. Also, other nations are swayed with intoxication for power and the loosening of sexaul restraints - the Leopard. Islam's paradise is erotic full of thousand delights.
The Lion/Eagle/Man deity is royal, regal, lofty, proud and arrogant and influence peoples and nations to be lofty in power and politics, modern liberalism fits here as does socialism's utopia visions, and country with central planning. The Lion symbol is old Babylon, and England shares that symbol too as do other other countries. Fabain Socialism came form what country? Then the symbol of eagle wings and heart or head of a man - which countries share these symbols?
All are connected in some way to the moon god and serpent dragon on the old myths - so yes all nations can be used for this end. However, it appears from the bible that the Assyrian mentioned in Isaiah 10:24 and Micah 5:5-6 refers to Militant Islam is rising again.
There is a prophetic cycle mentioned in Eccl 3:15 NKJV and thus accordingly events will mirror each other in other countries so that in is difficult to grasp where and when the final blow will be. The Pope and Antichrist in modern teachings on end time prophecy fits here and are decidedly western ethnocentric. To be sure, Western countries can mirror events. However and closer study of the bible reveals things concerning the end times concern Israel and its location and the Middle East.
With the rise of Islam and its Leopard like infiltration through immigration and terrorism and warfare along with the Shiite Bear gaining Nukes. The two legs of Iron of the Statue in Dan 2 may not be the old roman empire at all but rather Sunni and Shiite, whose link is the area where fallen beings granted the working with Iron to man around the area of Ur- Mecca regions. Where both await the Green One to come and revise Islam into its correct form... a new religion of peace...
Please note that accord to Daniel chapter two the kingdoms that follow after Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom indicate that they will rule from Babylon or it environs. Persia did and well as Greece, however Rome did not. The Islamic Empire which was larger than Rome's did. Islam eventually suffered a major defeat, a wound, but has now recovered and is alive and spreading again all in according to the prophetic template... which will next involve individual rulers following a similar pattern again.
The whole world according to the Hypotheses just presented
is going crazy and heading toward the idea of one world Utopian fantasies of the Lion, Leopard, and Bear... Visions... Think about it... test this Hypotheses
with scriptures and history and lay aside ethnocentrism.
