It would seem the 10 nation United States of Europe is becoming a reality in the very near future with Germany leading the charge.
In the recent Egyptian election, Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi emerged the victor. During the vote count, Egypt's Supreme Council of Armed Forces issued a declaration claiming for itself legislative power and control of the budget and the drafting of a new constitution in a move that some have characterized as a "complete coup" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...rt-ruling.html
However, the Muslim Brotherhood is now the largest party in the Egyptian parliament and apparently growing in influence . Several weeks ago, at a presidential rally, a popular Muslim cleric commented about what would happen if Mohammed Mursi were elected president: "Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God's will. Our chants shall be: 'millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem'... The United States of the Arabs will be restored on the hands of that man [Mursi] and his supporters. The capital of the [Muslim] Caliphate will be Jerusalem with God's will... Yes, we will either pray in Jerusalem or we will be martyred there'". A video of this event aired on Egypt's religious Annas TV and went "viral" when it hit YouTube . Mursi has since suggested that the longstanding peace agreement with Egypt and Israel be reconsidered in order to "build ties with Iran to 'create a strategic balance' in the Middle East". http://english.alarabiya.net/article...07/219272.html
The prophet Daniel foretold of a coming King of the South (apparently a combination of Arab states) that will attack a coming European Beast power (King of the North) which will ultimately overrun the King of the South. Egypt figures prominently in this prophecy and could be a catalyst that helps bring together this King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).
Seems world events are shaping up just as the Bible predicted it would with a northern alliance in Europe and a southern one in the middle east beginning to coalesce. The stage is being set for Christ's imminent return as these two future powers bring about the battle of Armageddon near Jerusalem.
Of course let's not forget the 200 million man army from the east [China or India] that crosses the Euphrates to meet there during the battle. Rev: 9 v13-19, 16 v12.
