Who Said That?

"The king of Egypt during that time will be the man who devastated the Jews in the Sinai and exiled their remnants from it and let in the forces of the [foreign] agent of the UN, which removed weaponry from most of the Sinai and stayed to guard the illusions of peace or the deluded peace . . . . So the king of Egypt will proclaim the union of Egypt with the caliphate state, and the Egyptian armies in expectation of the Mahdi, will combine together to aid the religion of God."

"in expectation of the Mahdi", Ahmadinejad would be my first guess as well.

Yeah, I gotta go for MA too. Mention the Mahdi and you think Mahmoud.

I'll take a stab in a different direction. WeirdNetDaily has been pushing a book arguing for an Islamic Antichrist (see I'd guess that author, Joel Richardson.

the use of the term "caliphate" sounds like the Glenn Beck hysteria all of us who study the Middle East have been laughing about, but the talk about Egyptian glory and union sounds like someone out of Egypt, someone older perhaps still believing in Egypt's ability to save the Mid East which was a sentiment under Gamal Abd el Nasser.

whoever it is this is not a mainstream belief, at least not among the educated class that i worked, lived and went to school with in Cairo. most people i knew had no delusions about Egypt's weaknesses, which is evidenced in the Egyptian brain drain/ desire to immigrate and now in the Egyptian Revolution.

I'm also going in a different direction. Although I have no clue who exactly said this I'm going to guess John Hagee or some other dispensational prophecy pundit who likes to impose current events onto Scripture.
