Is Barack Obama the promised warrior coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?
The question has made the rounds in Iran since last month, when a pro-government Web site published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.
According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophets cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West. Commanding the strongest army on earth, the new ruler in the West will carry a clear sign from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.
In a curious coincidence Obamas first and second namesBarack Husseinmean the blessing of Hussein in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means he is with us, the magic formula in Majlisis tradition.

This is an old article but thought it deserved another look for those who haven’t heard of this.

Thanks for posting. I have never seen this article before-—published days before the election. Just did a FR search on the title and nothing comes up.
Even among the actual Syrian rebels there are many who fight under the banner of groups like the al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra. These men, hundreds of them, fight to oust Assad in the name of establishing a Sunni Muslim state ruled under Sharia law -- not a Syria modeled on the West's idea of democracy.
You know I have been trying to make people understand obama will not cross iran. They don’t get it.
I noticed. :-)
One thing I don't get: Will the Middle East turn into a Shiite/Sunni bloodbath? How's this gonna work with Sunni MB and Shiite Iran?
mb has already made its formal peace with iran after decades of mubarak having no use for iran. iran has been hiding al qaeda/mb within its borders since long before bin laden died.
