WEll, the thing about his dream is, the dream will be quashed long before it reaches that particular plain. It probably won't make it out of his country's border.

According to this story from the Telegraph, Mr Ahmadinejad is a believer of the "Hidden Imam" and as such, believes that he can actually push the world closer to the last battle in order to bring the messiah back sooner.
Mr Ahmadinejad appears to believe that these events are close at hand and that ordinary mortals can influence the divine timetable.
The prospect of such a man obtaining nuclear weapons is worrying. The unspoken question is this: is Mr Ahmadinejad now tempting a clash with the West because he feels safe in the belief of the imminent return of the Hidden Imam? Worse, might he be trying to provoke chaos in the hope of hastening his reappearance?

This is a very worrisome prospect. This man has already shown the world his hatred of the Israelis and voiced his willingness to obliterate them from the world map. If he truelly is trying to rush in World War Three in the hopes of bringing back his messiah sooner, then keeping nuclear weapons out of his hands is of the utmost importance.

I had a Christian tell me the other day, "Well, what you're saying is scary, but I know with all my mind that Israel cannot be hit by a nuke. It simply will not be allowed to happen." ...I really had no response, so I just commended his faith and changed the subject.

From a Christian perspective he IS fulfilling prophecy, afterall there will come war from the East, a great persecution will break out, many christians will die by getting their heads cut off. Israel will be invaded etc, etc
Maybe he can talk Pat into giving him a hand?
