Here's an interesting link I've found. I don't know much about the Ultra Orthodox Lithuanian Jews, admittedly. But one of their prominent rabbis has suggested the Arab unrest is a sign of Messiah's coming.
"People have come to me and said that it's 'Gog and Magog'. (Ezekiel 38) We cannot know. But it's probable that any unrest that God creates shows that the Messiah is coming, and that we must begin to prepare for it and become stronger."
Remember, Jews don't believe Jesus was their Messiah. They are still looking for him. If some of the super-religious Jews believe the Messiah is coming, should Christians take note as well?
