Rav Kanievsky Shlit"a: We are in Hevlei Mashiah

A couple weeks ago, it was Rav Shteinman Shlit"a, and now, Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a said (my translation of one paragraph):
During [Rav Ezrachi's] conversation in the home of Maran Sar Hatorah Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky, he [Rav Kanievsky] expressed - in a rare statement of this nature - that we are currently in Hevlei Mashiah.  Hagaon Rav Chaim quoted the gemara at the end of Mesechet Sotah that says that before Mashiah comes, the kingdom will turn to apostasy, insolence will increase, and the young men will shame the elders, etc.

Sure, and Rav Kook wrote that World War I was certainly the upheaval that would presage Moshiach's arrival.
With all the infighting in our nation, why would Moshiach want to show up? He doesn't need the headache.

And the Hafetz Hayim said that after WWI, there would be a WWII and a WWIII.

The recent Atzeret helped solve some of the infighting within the various Haredi camps. Haredi-DL infighting still needs resolution and requires some getting off the high horse on both sides.

When Mashiah comes, and a real Sanhedrin will be established, that itself will resolve the infighting.
