A better understanding of 'Arab Colonialism' in Egypt is more easily understood in the context of the Eternal Sovereign in control of all world affairs, and the process in which all of the world will be brought under Messianic leadership under Yeshua. Islam/Muslims are merely the means to chastise an unbelieving world to the end that the Eternal Sovereign controls destinies, like that which is happening in Syria preparatory to the completion of the Ezekiel scenario.

From a different perspective, knowing that the Arabs can trace ancestry to some being sons of Ishmael (half Egyptian); we read here about the Egyptian destiny: Isaiah 19:

16) In that day the Egyptians will become like women, and they will tremble and be in dread because of the waving of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which He is going to wave over them.
17) The land of Judah will become a terror to Egypt; everyone to whom it is mentioned will be in dread of it, because of the purpose of the LORD of hosts which He is purposing against them.
18) In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will be speaking the language of Canaan and swearing allegiance to the LORD of hosts; one will be called the City of Destruction.
19) In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD near its border.
20) It will become a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Champion, and He will deliver them.
21) Thus the LORD will make Himself known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day. They will even worship with sacrifice and offering, and will make a vow to the LORD and perform it.
22) The LORD will strike Egypt, striking but healing; so they will return to the LORD, and He will respond to them and will heal them.
23) In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
24) In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth,
25) whom the LORD of hosts has blessed, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance."

'In that day' means the day of the LORD; something that is not all that far off........
