I just received this from a student inside of Iran regarding the capture of Saddam...

"People are happy & shocked here.

Most say that the regime should review itself... It is a turning point for Iran too. Mullahs can see Saddam now and think about their own destiny.

One Taxi driver said here: Mr.Bush is the 12th Imam of Shiites, God bless him. "

I've heard about rumors that many Muslims (including a sizable contingent in Iran) believe that President Bush is somehow the "Messiah." I'm not exactly sure how best to describe this (apparently an old caliph disappeared and will return or something), but I've heard that the closeness of the 2000 election has something to do with it. Got any information to clear this up?

Well, this is an interesting twist on things! Thanks for the ping -- this is the first I’ve heard of this!

Here’s the thread to which dufekin is referring:

IRAN: God Wills It, But The People Don't Want It (Iranian youths calling Bush "the messiah")

See especially dufekin’s post #83 on that thread.

I have to take it that the Iranian youths are calling Bush "the Messiah" in an analogous use of the term, given that the Shi’ite version of the Messiah -- or Mahdi -- is someone who is supposed to be someone who’s over 1100 years old!

But it is a tremendous compliment to Bush, and a voice of hope that the evil-doers ruling Iran will be overthrown either directly by America, or with our assistance.
