Iran Prepares for the End of the World

Iran is ramping up for a religious war against the west!

Greeting humans. I know there are numerous speculatory threads existing about the intentions of Israel, the Intentions of The United States and the intentions of Iran.

I heard something today that disturbed me. It was in reference to the 'Mahdi.' The statement was made that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has referred to having talks with the awaited prophet that will signal the end times. He has built roads and temples for him.

Religious doctrine is forcing the decisions of Iran and when a country is zealously following what they feel to be the dictate of God, what will stop them?

Apparently, the Mahdi is overdue and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad feels it is his duty to prepare the way for him.


Not surprisingly, it's a technical religious term. Mahdaviat derives from mahdi, Arabic for "rightly-guided one," a major figure in Islamic eschatology. He is, explains the Encyclopaedia of Islam, "the restorer of religion and justice who will rule before the end of the world." The concept originated in the earliest years of Islam and, over time, became particularly identified with the Shi‘ite branch. Whereas "it never became an essential part of Sunni religious doctrine," continues the encyclopedia, "Belief in the coming of the Mahdi of the Family of the Prophet became a central aspect of the faith in radical Shi‘ism," where it is also known as the return of the Twelfth Imam.

Mahdaviat means "belief in and efforts to prepare for the Mahdi."


www.danielpipes.org...


He often raises the topic, and not just to Muslims. When addressing the United Nations in September, Mr. Ahmadinejad flummoxed his audience of world political leaders by concluding his address with a prayer for the Mahdi's appearance: "O mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository, the Promised One, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace."




Mahdaviat has direct and ominous implications for the U.S.-Iran confrontation, says an Ahmadinejad supporter, Hamidreza Taraghi of Iran's hard-line Islamic Coalition Society. It implies seeing Washington as the rival to Tehran and even as a false Mahdi. For Mr. Ahmadinejad, the top priority is to challenge America, and specifically to create a powerful model state based on "Islamic democracy" by which to oppose it. Mr. Taraghi predicts trouble ahead unless Americans fundamentally change their ways.


Wow, so instead of th Antichrist, Obama is now the 'False Mahdi.' Is that a promotion?

Just as western religions have their end-time prophesies, Islam is no different, but the intricacies of the beliefs are quite dissimilar.

What I truly hope is that someone familiar with the teachings of Islam that pertain to the appearance of the Mahdi will enlighten us as to how this pertains to Iran today.

The president of Iran seems intent on speeding the fulfillment of necessary prophesy. This is a scary thing.

Feel free to hit up his blog and see what's cooking.

That thread may be of use to you. It isn't from an Islamic perspective, but it still sheds light on the subject.

Hi KS,

I believe there is a fundamental problem here. I joke about preemptive strikes, by calling them Preemptive Love Strikes of Peace.

After all that is how they are billed to us; war monger's tell us that attacks, and war are good for peace.

Now those very war monger's are being beaten at their game of false rhetoric, and I am talking about the countries of: US/UK/Germany/France/Israel.

What is Our US Army doing all over the World? They say protecting U.S. Citizens, but I think along with calling a preemptive strike for what it is, which is a cold blooded surprise attack, We should call protecting US Citizens for what it really is; which is the US Govt. using taxpayer money to look after global private business interests.

Now, all that being said the amount of disinformation out currently is sickening, and I know it is disinformation. As the countries calling for preemptive love strikes of peace are being beaten back by their rhetoric being shown for the very lies they are, now the push has changed direction at an assault on the very differences in culture.

To end this, how is the Evangelical Christian any different then the disinfo spreading? Iran is calling for peace, while the Christian World is calling for war in the Middle East.

Yes, I've heard it more often than not from living in the bible belt how many do prey for the final war, and rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem............

They prey for war

S&F

ps. I would recommend this thread. It shows a lot. How Ron Paul is saying no, How Obama is following Bush's war rhetoric, and being denounced by socialism, how fox news is ramping up toward a war, and how their very evidence is skewed based off the fact that Israel is doing it too, but "we must protect them

That was good for a chuckle


I don't honestly believe Ahck-mah-deen-ah-jawd (insert throat noises and congested coughing sounds to make pronunciation authentic) really believes in the "end times" and all that jazz.. Although, Saddam Husein thought that Iranians were "religious zealots." But then again, we thought Saddam was a religious zealot -- and clearly he was a down-to-earth, reality based dictator/torturer/bad person.

So maybe Iran is just saber rattling. Although, if they build nuclear bombs, they might just get their wish to be destroyed.

Iran is mostly talk. When push comes to shove they'll shut up. You know Ahmadinejad (I think we should put an 'ih' in between the j and a) will shut up and say the opposite when an Israeli war plane crosses into Iranian airspace.

On a lighter note,

Secret Song of the Jihadists

That is satire and I'll take it out of the post in approximately 6 hours.

There is a lot of talk lately about attacking Iran.

Well, Pick your City:









The Bush administration has built a new generation of nuclear weapons that we call ‘usable’ nukes, and they have a nuclear ‘posture’ now, which permits the use of nuclear weapons in a non-nuclear environment if the Commander in Chief deems U.S forces to be at significant risk. If we start bombing Iran (I tell you now it’s not going to work).

My concern is that we will use nuclear weapons to break the backbone of Iranian resistance and it may not work, but what it will do is this: It will unleash the nuclear genie. So to all those Americans out there tonight who are saying, you know what, taking on Iran is a good thing… . And if we use nuclear weapons, the genie ain’t going back in the bottle until an American city is taken out by an Islamic weapon in retaliation. So tell me, you want to go to war against Iran, pick your city. Pick your city. Tell me which one you want gone. Seattle? L.A.? Boston? New York? Miami? Pick one! Because at least one’s going. And that’s something we should all think about before marching down this path of insanity.



Do not forget that American Boys and Men are positioned between the Israeli state and any Iranian counter-attack. By virtue off this they can both be used by Israel to threaten Iran and influence' America.

*Imagine if Israel attacked Iran and the US troops in Iraq moved aside and created a corridor for the Iranians to pass through.

This is actually a scary subject.

The fanatics are in charge, and we're pretty much helpless to do anything but watch.

Here we have Billary saying "I don't think they can prove that the installation was created for peaceful purposes"

...and a senior Iranian official saying "Soon our facility will be on-line, and we will blind the eyes of our enemies"

Meanwhile on PressTV, during the testing of mid-range missles, voices of grown men screaming "lalalalala akbar" can be heard as the rockets leave the launch pad.

Russia's thinking "these people are crazy"...Sanctions? Uh yea Sanctions are sounding good to us.

China, on the other hand is snuggled up to Iran and helping them with their refining facilities and technology because they need that oil, so they're the big unknown in the 5 permanent members of the U.N.S.C.

I thought we'd find out more about the end of the world on Thursday when they meet in Geneva, but apparently Iran has refused to discuss the nuclear issue.

Yes folks, this could get ugly.

If Iran seriously wants to "get it on", and don't care if they lose, you just know the west has a big red blinking button at the ready labeled "12th Imam"

Deep seated beliefs confronted with like minded fundamentalism and our out of control capitalism...

I bet even Kim Jung Il is thinking "What the hell are they doing?"

"Never underestimate slumbering tyrants."
"A wise tyrant always allows a fool to take the lead in a crisis."
I wonder who's pulling the strings this time?


What a load of lead underpants.

Oh where art thou comets when thou needs one?

I'm not sure if you implied that Ahmadinajad considers Obama as the Mahdi...

But in 2006, I had the chance to ask him a question, I asked him about the whole Mahdi thing. He answered that he believed the Mahdi would show up on the day of the american elections.

So my interpretation is that he indeed believed, back in 06, that the next US president would be the Mahdi...so unless he changed his view since then or was BSing me, he believes that Obama is the Mahdi.

Just my 2 cents.

That is to say - you have given us nothing that would persuade us to believe you.

Nice story though...

Doesn't matter. Personal experiences cannot be refuted unless you have proof it did not happen.
I'm not saying you have to believe him, I'm just saying it doesn't matter if you do or not.

I'd like to hear more about how the meeting came about, but, not in this thread.

Disbelief noted and discarded.

The only country with religious fanatics is Iran with their screaming mullahs?

Oh my goodness, lest we forget the Ultra Orthodox Talmudic Zionists who are wailing for war, along with their Christian stooges in the US desperate to be proven right regarding Revelations and the return of Jesus...

Why are there people who want to make Iran into another Iraq with ruined infrastructures and families, blood on the streets and dead bodies...


Is it over Money? Power? Revenge? Bloodthirst? Racism?

Seriously what the hell is wrong with the warmongers, those on either sides who are screaming for war should be thrown onto a giant meat sluicer and processed into blood meal for the garden of peace.

No pictures?

Do you have anything at all that proves he met with the Iranian President?

New Amendment to Rules of War - 'You ask for one; you or one of your immediate family members become the tip of the initial Marine spear or ride that nuke like it's a donkey to it's final destination'

The people that always shout the loudest for war have never heard a bullet wiz by their head in the middle of the night. Perception, greed, Ego - pick one of all human fraitlties sadly unless it 'Hit's Home' we won't understand what other's are suffering. Let them talk after they find themselves huddled with their families as tanks roll by down their streets, see how they feel seeing blood on their front doorstep or finding weapons on roofs and front yards, left behind by the dead.

But War's Good for Business.

I just love how people with zero knowledge of Israel (unlike me, the zeroknowledge) write this kind of stuff. Who exactly are those awful U.O.T.Z wailing for war? If it is current Israeli leadership - then they are only Z wailing for war. Because U.O.T are anti - Z, even if the same U.O.T are wailing for war too.
Jokes aside - Zionism is not a religious movement. Actually it was anti-religious movement in the beginning,since it was only an extension of early socialism.It is not hard to understand. Just a little reading will do. The most fundamentalistic Orthodox (Talmudic by the way) Jews are against Israel,Zionism and visit Ahmadinejad pretty often.

So who is really behind this?
Is it government or religious factors?

One interesting note is that on the signet ring of Knights of Templar (York Rite Freemasonry) each side bears an emblem. On one side is the Al Aqsa Mosque....now why would they be interested in this and what does it signify?

On the other side of the ring is a Templar sword. The text on the face of the signet ring reads "Seal of the Military of the Temple".

So does this mean the Dome of the Rock is their Temple, too?
Would they be defending it or trying to bring it down?

Is this "Temple military" another dominionist regime coming into play?



Who is really orchestrating this rumbling of war?

We are.

Iran is the next Nation on our chopping block and so it is important that we win the media war by flooding the airwaves and internet with negative stories about Iran.

It is also important that we keep people from finding out that this new plant wasn't secret and that Israel has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran has signed this treaty and has allowed full IAEA inspections (unlike Israel), so it is all the more important that we overwhelm these true stories with unadulterated propaganda of the highest order. We cannot have anyone finding out that Israel has already done what we are trying to convince the world that Iran might do, one day, maybe.

We really have a chance to get the Mullahs once and for all. Let's just hope our propaganda was effective enough to allow us to get away with it


An Attack on Iran has been in the works for years:




Iran is evil and just has to go. If anyone disagrees with this assessment then perhaps it has something to do with antisemitism and AhmedinJIHAD-type holocaust denial - but I guess that is their problem. It is pretty obvious that Six million died and only a hateful antisemite would disagree.

*That about covers it




Edit: One more thing about Democracy...

Whether they are telling the truth or not, there is plenty of evidence to suggest he does indeed believe Obama is the Mahdi.
