The Mahdi is the Savior of the Islamic people. Like Christians are waiting for the second coming of Christ, Moslems are awaiting the Mahdi.

I refuse to believe all of these protests happened all on their own. I haven't done too much research into it, I know some people think that the Muslim Brotherhood is behind all of it. But now there are protests in North Korea and there are protests in Lybia. It's fine for all of these people to want freedom and democracy but there must be some organization that is bringing all these people together and organizing them. I don't believe that the US is directly responsible for all of this but I feel that our government certainly might be supporting the other protesters. How many governments are involved? It's obviously not just the US. Does anyone here know what's going on?

It may be that people are tired of being denied freedom and the right to a decent, at least, middle class existence.
With modern technology and the scientific revolution why should there be humans that starve to death and most others be at bare subsistence, and be denied a decent life when there are billionaires and millionaires going around stealing and hogging the world’s wealth and resources and living like Kings.
The people of the world are tired of this system of greed and control that exists where a few live good and the rest of us live like dogs.
Now the elite, led by fools in the Republican Party in the US, and other foreign countries are telling people: you have to take less. We have to cut services to you.
They do this while at the same time bailing out Banksters and giving the rich everything they want.
AND YOU WONDER WHY THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY?
The people are seeing that there is no reason to cut budgets and deny people a decent life, when there is really no shortage of anything but the manipulation of macro economics to enrich a few greedy pigs at the expense of most of us.
The veneer of BS: fake recessions and depression and the monetary manipulation by greedy banksters and their puppet politicians are being exposed for what it is and people are tired of it.
The question is: WHEN ARE THE PEOPLE IN THE US GOING TO WAKE UP
AND JOIN THE LIBYANS, EGYPTIANS, AND NOW THE BRITISH, IRISH, GREEKS AND OTHERS AND:
