Mubarak supporters, protesters clash in Egypt - World news - Mideast/N. Africa -

Map indicating location of Egypt and IsraelImage via WikipediaWhy is this all over the news today? Whether or not you believe in the Bible. I just wanted to point this out. I will be posting more on this very soon. If you have never read Daniel 11 before, now would be a great time to start. I'm only pointing out part of the chapter here. Most don't realize that Egypt is the South mentioned here. Please read the full chapter here.
 Daniel 11
25 “He shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the South with a great army. And the king of the South shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise plans against him. 26 Yes, those who eat of the portion of his delicacies shall destroy him; his army shall be swept away, and many shall fall down slain. 27 Both these kings’ hearts shall be bent on evil, and they shall speak lies at the same table; but it shall not prosper, for the end will still be at the appointed time. 28 While returning to his land with great riches, his heart shall be moved against the holy covenant; so he shall do damage and return to his own land.

Is this that time? I have a feeling the next few days or weeks will tell us if it is or not.

Several thousand supporters of embattled President Hosni Mubarak, some galloping in on horses and camels and wielding whips, charged into a crowd of anti-government protesters Wednesday, instigating violent clashes as Egypt's upheaval took a dangerous new turn.
The two sides rained stones, bottles, firebombs and even satellite dishes (ripped off nearby buildings) on each other.
Egypt's health minister said at least one person was killed and nearly 600 wounded in the violence. The dead man, killed when he fell from a bridge, was a soldier, the minister said. Several foreign journalists were among the injured, according to media reports.
