NBC’s Engel ‘Worried’ About ‘Ferociously Anti-Israel’ Arab Street and Concludes ‘This Thing Ends in Jerusalem’

NBC correspondent Richard Engel has a feeling that the Arab world is on a collision course with Israel that ‘ends in Jerusalem’ with a major war in a few years.  Gee, ya think?

By Brad Wilmouth – “On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel informed viewers that he is ‘worried’ that a major war between some of the Arab countries and Israel could be in the not too distant future because of the ‘ferociously anti-Israel’ sentiment of the ‘Arab street’ that is likely to gain power in countries like Egypt. He ended up concluding: ‘But I think, over time, this thing ends in Jerusalem.’

After host Brian Williams and Engel had discussed the likely prosecution of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, and the disappointment of Libyan rebels at the level of assistance to their cause supplied by NATO, Williams posed the question: ‘You’re back here in New York for a few days. The question I’ve seen most people ask you: Where does this all end?’

Engel sounded more pessimistic than he did during the protests in Egypt from January and February. Engel:

This whole movement in the Middle East, and I’m worried about it because while people in the region deserve more rights and they want more rights and they’re embracing more of the will of the Arab street, well, the will of the Arab street is also ferociously anti-Israel, against Israel.” Read more.

Update 4/25/2011A clip from NBC’s interview has now been added below.  This clip was uploaded to Youtube by a Muslim poster who states, unequivocally, “Yes, insha’Allaah, [Allah willing] just like before, we will get back our Al Quds [Jerusalem].”  The Muslim world longs for the battle of all battles to come as soon as possible …

    If Mr. Engel would have just read his Bible he would have seen that this has been known–that “this thing ends in Jerusalem”–for at least 2500 years.

    Judging from what he said, it almost makes me wonder if that’s in fact what he did …

    His comment that the war may come in 3-5 years may turn out to be prophetic. I know that God is sovereign and all things will happen according to His timetable, but from my puny human perspective, I can’t see Israel holding out for another 10 or 20 years. This whole thing may be coming on us like a freight train. How many people, even believers, see it coming?

    I see it coming, storm clouds of crimson are building on the horizon and I hear the distant thunder …

    AtHisFeet Daniel agrees with you and tells us in 9:26 …….that the end will come like a flood:………….

    Speaking of Israel holding out, I just got an email from my church:

    “Thursday, April 28
    Have a Heart for Israel?
    The Israeli Deputy Consul General is making a stop at Neighborhood Church 7pm in room 401. This is part of a public relations visit to encourage support for Israel. The Deputy General will lecture and answer questions. No prior sign up is necessary.”

    Any questions for him that I can ask for you?

    I’m curious to know what the general feeling is amongst religious and non-religious Jews with respect to the revolutions and overall chaos within the Muslim world right now.

    What will their response be if the U.N. and Palestinians unilaterally declare a Palestinian State?

    And does he agree with Richard Engel’s … analysis?
