Apocalyptic thinking in Christianity and Islam

Just heard on the Today programme that, as might be expected, vocal support for Israeli bombing of Lebanon is coming from ultra-Christian groups in the USA who see the present situation as presaging the End Time. On the other side of the fence we have people such as Mr Ahmedinejad in Iran who thinks he detects the imminent advent of the Hidden Imam, who will likewise usher in the End.

Talk about self-fulfilling prophecies ....
