Fight the Jews and Vanquish Them so as to Hasten the Coming of the Hidden Imam

The Middle East Media Research Institute:

The official Iranian news agency Fars, which is close to the conservative circles in Iran, recently published a statement by Ayatollah Hossein Nouri-Hamedani, one of the Iranian regime's leading religious authorities, in which he advocates fighting the Jews in order to prepare the ground and to hasten the advent of the Hidden Imam, the Messiah according to Shiite belief.

It should be noted that the Fars news agency took the report off its web site several hours after its publication, and other Iranian media outlets close to the conservatives refrained from citing it.

The following is the text of Ayatollah Nouri-Hamedani's censored statements, which appeared in identical language on two internet sites: Peykeiran, a site close to the anti-regime communist left; and Asylum-Norway, an internet site belonging to an organization that supports Iranian refugees in Norway: [1]

Prior to the Advent of the Hidden Imam, Arrogance and Colonialism Rule the World

"Fars news agency: Ayatollah Nouri-Hamedani, discussing [Shi'ite] religious texts, said: 'One should fight the Jews and vanquish them so that the conditions for the advent of the Hidden Imam be met.' According to the Fars news agency's report, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamedani met with members of the Mahdaviyat Studies Institute. [2] He praised the institute's work and demanded that the religious seminaries in Qom also do more to research religious texts and hadith concerning the Hidden Imam...

"Nouri-Hamedani said that the texts concerning the end of days are rife with allusions and hidden meanings. He asked the researchers to devote their efforts to elucidating these texts. He noted: 'In the texts it is told that the Hidden Imam will remove the yoke of humiliation from mankind's neck. Therefore it is clear that prior to the advent of the Hidden Imam, Arrogance [a common epithet for Western powers, especially the U.S.A.] and colonialism rule the world.'

The Jews Have Hoarded All the Wealth in One Place, and All the World are Their Slaves

"According to this religious authority, 'at present the Jews' policies threaten us. One should explain in the clearest terms the danger the Jews pose to the [Iranian] people

and to the Muslims. Ever since Islam's appearance, the group that expressed fierce opposition to Islam – and still acts in this fashion – were the Jews. They were involved in the Khaybar, Uhud, and Ahzab wars.' [3] He added: 'Already from the beginning the Jews wanted to hoard the world's goods in [their] greed and voracity. They always worked in important professions and now they have hoarded all of the wealth in one place. And all of the world, especially America and Europe, are their slaves.'"

Crazy Ideas Such as Secularism, Liberalism, and Humanism are Part of Our Enemies' Plans to Sow Disunity

In another statement from last year, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamedani, on the occasion of his visit to the cities of Khoramshahr and Shalamche, said: "World Arrogance [i.e., the U.S. and the Western powers] is creating a trinity of evil: heresy, divisiveness, and Zionism, in order to weaken the [Iranian] people's spirit and to create division and disagreement with respect to our regime. [Therefore] all of the senior officials and the public must be on their guard more than ever…

"The spreading of prostitution and evil things, the creation of a mentality of inferiority, and the propagation of crazy ideas such as secularism, liberalism, and humanism are [all] part of our enemies' plans to sow disunity in [our] society...

"The revelation of the culture of Jihad and martyrdom in the country [Iran] struck world Arrogance [i.e., the U.S. and the Western powers] with dread... The existence of such a spirit among our youth led to world Arrogance's not daring to infringe on our borders... History shows that every people that lost the culture of Jihad and martyrdom were brought down." [4]




[1] The speech was apparently delivered on April 14, 2005. http://web.peykeiran.com/net_iran/irnewsbody.aspx?ID=23105; http://www.asylum-norway.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=182. The speech was apparently delivered on April 14, 2005.

[2] Mahdaviyat studies are concerning the Shiite doctrine of the Hidden Imam, who is to reappear as Mahdi, i.e., the rightly guided one.

[3] These refer to famous victories of the Muslims under the leadership of Prophet Mohammad: The Battle of Khaybar took place in 628 A.D., the Battle of Uhud in 625 A.D., and the war of the Ahzab refers to the siege of Al-Madina in 627 A.D.

Shouldn't we send the above statement to George Soros, Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Martin Sheen, Janeane Garafalo, Babs Streisand, plus the other secular, liberal, humanistic snakes below?....They should be forewarned that the Iranian mullahs are gunning for THEM first and foremost. Alas, the snakes are asleep...

Now that's novel: blaming "the Jews".

But what the world really has to watch out for is the dangerous radiation given off by women's hair--it drives men mad!

Mullahs hate Liberal Democracies a lot! They think that Liberal Democracies will ruin their foundations of ruling people which is true. Western Liberal Democracy is poison for the Mullahs.

Fanatical Shi'ites firmly espouse the Islamic doctrinal belief that the 'Hidden Imam', 'The Expected One', ('The Mahdi') will only appear only after the world is 'cleansed of infidels' or the 'infidels' or forced to 'submit' to their brand of Islam.

Iranian Shi'ite mullahs in control of offensive nuclear weapons is not a good combination.

This War on Terror is a battle of Religions. The muslims are commanded to force the entire world to submit to their beliefs (or death) and the Mad Mullahs figure that NOW is the time. You know, when I read crap like this I feel so very sorry for the Iranian people. It was bad enough (for me) living here in the US with Carter, and then Slick, in office. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have to live in Iran or any muslim regime since the leaders seem to be loose screws most of the time.

BTW!!! Great info on your blog. For those who didn't notice, check this item out:

A paper circulating among defence thinktanks and non-government organisations says that a detailed Pentagon plan for military strikes on Iran could be presented to Mr Bush in June this year. "There is impatience in Washington with the European diplomatic initiative and some analysts have even predicted a strike on Iran within 18 months," Sir Menzies said yesterday.

The problem with many in understanding this "prophecy" (Israel will fall and not be a state), is that it has already been "fulfilled". The other problem with mankind's understanding of real prophecies is that much of it doesn't even happen in the span of a normal human life.

An Egyptian swore to me that his prophet, Mohamed, promised that Israel will no longer be. I didn't want to press his brain into thinking about what he said, but I wanted to remind him that human history is a lot older they he. There use to be a Roman Empire that abolished Jews from their own home rule. They had an agenda to re-invent the area and even gave the land of Israel a Grecco-Romanized name (Palestine). Later, Jihad had removed not only Jewish, but Christian self rule from the Middle East too.

So the prophesy isn't really a prophesy at all. It's history (and perhaps the only "glory days" of Jihad). Israel is very much a real nation reestablished (as it has done so historically from past conquerors). Israel and Jews are so indelible as a nation and people that History gives witness that God, the Author of History, has indeed made the Jews the apple of His eye.

Thus, there are only two options for gentiles:

1) convert to Judaism; or,
2) convert to Christianity (Universal Christian Catholicism is pretty much the same thing as being Jewish since all of the rituals are Jewish in nature...except circumcision and some dietary disciplines).

For the Catholic/Jewish connection: The indelibly of the Catholic Church proves to Jewish spiritual leadership that God's Spirit is indeed with the the Catholic Church (how else can unmarried men be priests and still attract more to the priesthood for all of these centuries). Thus, in the nature of Truth as understood by Jewish elders (probably those of mankind who understand God best, but admit that they know nothing), God proves via History and the test of time that Jesus is the Messiah.

Mercifully, the Holy Trinity gives us so much time to reconcile to this Truth. Iranian leadership will not hasten the "coming" return of the Messiah since He returns on His own schedule. Rather, this sort of error in thinking will hasten their own end. To give more credit to this pattern of thought is to concede to the "dictatorship of relativism" (as coined by the new Pope). I suspect that such men would be so fixated with jealous hatred that in parting with their life, they would utter what the Nazi, Goebbels, had said of his tenure (only bragged about how many Jews he killed).

The more mankind responds to his desire of self rule in the Middle East, they will separate and remove this "prophet" from the True God. Souls, unobstructed by the terror of Persian theocracy, will journey to the Most Attractive and Gentlest, and Christ's message will not be ignored (as neither beliefs of Christianity nor Judaism have abandoned Iranians).

That God allows such errors to persist is testimony to His Divine Mercy that He wants us to reconcile to the Truth, Jesus, without the force of fear that would dominate or remove us from our precious gift of free will.
