Israel, enemy of the Arabs (CE14)

Dan 11:40-41 "At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown;"
    The moment the king of the South (Israel and Egypt) attack Iran (Persia, head of the king of the North), immediately and in great speed Iran and allies will attack and conquer many countries including Israel and Arab neighbours who had schemed and supported the Egyptians to attack Iran. These will be Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Lebanon, etc.
    The military cooperation between Israel and the Arab nations to attack Iran, another Muslim nation is unbelievable for all Muslim nations want the annihilation of Israel and to push all the Israelites into the Sea. All these Arab nations were either directly or indirectly fighting Israel since its formation in 1948.
1948 War of Independence was fought between the Israel and a military coalition of Arab states including Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, etc. with Israel gaining another 50% more land.
1967 Six-day War (June 1967) Fought between Israel and Arab neighbors Egypt, Jordan and Syria, with Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria contributed troops and arms. After this war, the territory held by Israel expanded significantly with the West Bank, Golan Heights, Sinai and Gaza strip.
1973 the Yom Kippur War started on Saturday 6th October. Egyptian and Syrian military forces launched an attack knowing that the military of Israel would be participating in the religious celebrations associated with Yom Kippur (their security greatly reduced). On the Golan Heights alone, 150 Israeli tanks faced 1,400 Syria tanks and in the Suez region just 500 Israeli soldiers faced 80,000 Egyptians. The Syrians and Egyptians were also supported by the coalition with military troops and weaponry from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Cuba, Jordan, Libya, etc. After three days of losses, the Israelites recovered and by Oct 24, with UN intervention, it stopped the Israelites from inflicting further losses to the Syrians, Egyptians, etc.
   So when God fought alongside Israel, assured disasters and defeats became miraculous and convincing victories that the Lord God Almighty is glorified. Brethren, when walk alongside God (or walk in the Spirit by keeping His words, will, etc.), we will rejoice in our exciting, generous, merciful, faithful, fruitful and victorious lives so that our Lord Jesus is glorified.

Humiliation of the Egyptians
    Egypt was involved in all the wars with Israel and had suffered great humiliation in the unexpected heavy losses of military personnels, weapons, planes, tanks, etc. from all their miserable defeats. Israel has been its greatest enemy and not only to Egyptians but also to all Arab nations. On the other hand, Iran the champion of the Muslims has openly declared its hatred for Israel and has boasted of the annihilation of Israel with its first nuclear bomb.

[ Note - in 1982, as a result of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty of 1979, Israel had withdrawn from all of the Sinai Peninsula except the contentious territory of Taba, which was returned after a ruling by a commission of arbitration in 1989.]

How then can we believe that Egypt will fight alongside Israel to attack Iran or what is Iran doing that will cause the Arabs to fight him?
