Could hezabollah's recent activity in Israel to wipe them off the map be geared (in the terrorist mind) to prevent the coming of the Jewish Messiah and to pave the way for the Islamic Messiah? Could the Islamic Messiah be the antichrist?

You're pitting one crazy religion against another crazy realigion so I suppose anything is possible in the minds of the believers. That would be cool to see though, a 900 ft. tall Jesus slugging it out with a 900 ft. tall Mahdi over Lebanon.

Hahaha, Godzilla versus Hydra. In all honesty there is no such thing nor will there ever be an Islamic or Jewish messiah. Mrwupy is correct in saying , "You're pitting one crazy religion against another crazy religion so I suppose anything is possible in the minds of the believers." The minds of the believers are crafting all sorts of outlandish things, starting with the miraculous creation of the ten commandments.

ermmmm...its the same person. Certain Jews believe Jesus will be proven the Messiah, if he does return to the Earth.

Christians and Muslims believe that Jesus is returning, both accept Jesus is the Messiah...you saying that the Islamic Messiah/Anti-Christ is Jesus....???

Jews don't accept jesus as the messiah, thats why they remained jews. Muslims accept jesus as a holy prophet, but don't call him the messiah (and of course don't think he is son of god).

The jews beleived that there'd be a messiah, someone "annointed" by god to be the reddemer of the kingdom of israel, to throw off, through a military action, foreign occupation, and rule as King. THe jewish messiah was just supposed to be a man.

Jesus came along, and his acolytes said 'the kingdom of god wasn't going to be a physical kingdom, the struggle wasn't going to be a real struggle, and he redeems because he is god himself'.

The muslims beleive that there will be an end to the world. They beleive that there will be someone called the Mahdi to come about and set the stage for the end of the world, reforming islam of any acculumated errors, battling evil, and then Jesus, who for them is a holy prophet bested only be mohammed, will come to earth and bring about the end itself.

The Shia, in particular, think that a particular man, the last of their Imams, called Mohammed Mahdi, is infact the Mahdi. They beleive that he never died, and went into magical 'occultation' (became hidden). They beleive that at the end of the world, he will un-occult, become visible, and lead the faithful (and of course jesus plays in on this too). Infact, the Shia beleive that Imam Mohammed Mahdi is still their leader, he went into occultation, and selects people to act his his communicant and director of the shia, called the "bab", the "Door", or some such.

The OP might infact be spot on. Hezbollah are fundamentalist Shi'ites, their supreme spritual leader should be the grand Ayatollah of Iran. So there is definitly somethign to be said about them wanting to fight for the Mahdi.

Its' happened before. THe british fought an insurrection of radical terroristic muslim fundamentalists in the Sudan, the leader claimed to be the Mahdi. al-Sadr, in Iraq, his militia is the Madhi Army, they expect that it is the army that will be commanded by the Mahdi when he un-occults.

I very much doubt, however, that Hezbollah is trying to prevent the Jewish Messiah from comming about, they wouldn't beleive in any jewish messiah. Besides which, there can't be any jewish messiah. The messiah functions to create the state of Israel. That state already exists. Thus, there can't be a jewish messiah anytime soon.
Infact, I beleive that this is why the many chasidic jews reject zionism and the modern state of isreal, because it wasn't brought about by the messiah (or at least then its just like any other worldly state).
