"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."

This is a quote from Muhammad `Isa Da'ud, who calls himself the Egyptian "Sinbad." A very popular writer who attempts to tie UFO's, the Bermuda Triangle, and current events together from an Islamic perspective. Sounds like some prophecy pundits we may know! His books sell in the millions are are widely read throughout the Arabic-speaking world. Can't help but wonder how much Islamic eschatological expectation is driving events in Egypt.
The exact quote comes from David Cook's Contemporary Muslim Apocalyptic Literture (Syracuse University Press, 2005), 130. He is citing from Da'ud's 1997 best-selling book Al-Mahdi al-muntazar `ala al-abwah (Cairo)
