Most of the folks who read this site are, I believe, pretty well informed, so this should not come as news. But it is a good reminder at a time when we have a President who seems to be incapable of making any real decisions on world events.
The most dangerous leaders in history are those like Hitler, Hirohito and Ahmadinejad, fueled by a totalitarian ideology and a mystical belief system. Ahmadinejad accepts that the return of the 12th Imam is imminent. Furthermore, he is certain of his own duty to hasten the Mahdi’s return.
Ahmadinejad has stated he believes the return of the Hidden Imam is going to happen within 2 years. He’s built roads and mosques to facilitate this return. And he doesn’t believe in sitting by. He believes his god commands him to do all he can to prepare the world for the arrival of the Mahdi.
When will the Mahdi come? When the world is in chaos.
No one ever went to war thinking God wasn’t on their side.
