Birthpangs and Birth

רבי יצחק: שנה שמלך המשיח נגלה בו, כל מלכי האומות מתגרים זה בזה, מלך פרס מתגרה במלך ערבי. וכל אומות העולם מתרעשים ומתבהלים ונופלים על פניהם. ויאחזו אותם צירים כצירי יולדה,

"Rabi Yitzhok said: 'The year that Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia, and the King of Arabia will go to Edom to take counsel, but the King of Persia will in turn, destroy the entire world. The nations of the world will be outraged and panicked. They will fall on their faces, and they will experience pains like birth pangs.

מלך ערבי is Arab King (ruler/leader). Which מלך ערבי is it referring to? The ילקוט שמעוני Yalkut Shimoni says that this should be read מלך מערב, King of the West. [+/-] show/hide text
Who is the ruler that is being provoked in the Western world? Gog Bush.

Yechezkel speaks about the wars of Gog and Magog (scattered over a few places). The Malbim says at a certain point, Esav and Yishmael realise that they cannot have peace between themselves because the Jews are in the middle; so they join together to eliminate the Jews. The wars will come from Lebanon three times. The first and second the alliance breaks down at the border, and they annihilate each other. The last war, they'll arrive in northern Israel and reach Yerushalayim, where Moshiach destroys them.
