    This week on 102.9 KARN , Little Rock, AR’s “The Doc Washburn Show,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) was asked about the theology of the Iranian Ayatollahs who believe world chaos will start the “end of days,” which will bring a Shia messiah, called the “Twelfth Imam” to establish a global Islamic caliphate more dangerous then the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Cotton replied, “As evil and wicked as the Soviet tyranny was, we could always count on Soviet leadership to be dedicated to national survival of mother Russia. I don’t think we can count on the Ayatollahs of Iran...

    Former US labor secretary Robert Reich offered sharp criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday, saying that the premiere’s intention address Congress on Tuesday, against the wishes of the White House, was driving many US Jews to speak out against Israel when in the past they may have remained silent, and that the speech was “poisoning the relationship” between Israel and the US In a post to his Facebook page, Reich, who was secretary during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 1997, appealed not to Netanyahu, but rather to the people of Israel, and warned them that the prime...

    "What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as...

    The Sufi Muslims who comprise one-fifth of the Muslim world, are touted in the West as the most peaceful Muslims in the world. But the West is in need for some serious shock therapy to see what is coming in the pipeline regarding the soul prepping of the armies and mass multitudes of the Antichrist, making themselves ready for the coming Sign (the Mahdi) and the Caliphate of end-times ... the ‘peace loving’ Sufi Muslims are really satan worshippers ... if you think that Sufi Muslims are still peaceful, just recently, the Muslim terrorist demons in Iraq are finally forcing...

    Last week I attended a discussion with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javed Zarif and witnessed his ability to mesmerise his listeners. The event took place at the German Council of Foreign Affairs in Berlin. Mr. Zarif succeeded in dazzling his audience – about 250 foreign policy experts — with commonplace sentences such as: “global security is indivisible”, “dialogue is necessary” or “war is not a good option.” He came across as an Iranian Gorbachev, a good-hearted reformer defying the powers of darkness. Yet a few days earlier he had bowed his head before the grave of a particularly sinister figure...

Speaking to NBC News a day after his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Netanyahu cautioned against Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's charm offensive, which he described as a strategy carried out to woo the West at the behest of the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. "[The Iranian people] are governed not by Rouhani. They're governed by Ayatollah Khamenei. He heads a cult. That cult is wild in its ambitions and its aggression," Netanyahu said. The prime...

Damascus Countdown begins with that meeting.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reply that Israel has the right to defend itself is as expected as the sun rising in the morning.

Addressing a ceremony for the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking held in Tehran on Tuesday, Rahimi alleged that the prevalence of narcotics and drug-addiction throughout the world is rooted in the Talmud. “The book teaches them how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother,” Rahimi stated.

    Iran will soon unveil "big new" nuclear achievements, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday while reiterating Tehran's readiness to revive talks with the West over the country's controversial nuclear program. Ahmadinejad spoke at a rally in Tehran as tens of thousands of Iranians marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution that toppled the pro-Western monarchy and brought Islamic clerics to power. Ahmadinejad did not elaborate on the upcoming announcement but insisted Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment, a process that makes material for reactors as well as weapons. The West suspects Iran's nuclear program is aimed at producing...

The asset interrupted me. "You really don't have any idea who you are dealing...

The article, written by Alireza Forghani, a conservative analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned conservative sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency, showing that the regime endorses this doctrine.

Nevertheless, those in the West who have denied the true nature of Iran’s nuclear program have served the Ayatollahs’ purpose as “Useful Idiots” for years.

The author contends they are, in fact, the same. "You have to look at this, really ask yourself, 'Wow, is this true?'"Beck said.

"They have...

    Mideast: Iran tests an advanced warhead design as it gets caught shipping weapons to Hezbollah. Syria is reported to give the group operational control over Scud missiles. It's five minutes to midnight. Tyranny abhors a vacuum. While the U.S. and the West dither in Hamlet-like fashion over whatever we shall do in places such as Afghanistan and Iran, the Axis of Evil is in full swing in its plans to destroy Israel and threaten Europe and America. Israel last week seized what it said was the largest arms cache ever intercepted in the region. Israeli navy commandos boarded the Francop,...

    Security: An Iranian mullah once said "a world without America and Zionism" was a real possibility. Our sellout of Eastern Europe and missile defense brings that dream closer to reality. It would take only one warhead."Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism?" Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked at a "World Without Zionism" conference in Tehran in 2005. "But you had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved." He added that Iran had a strategic "war preparation plan" for what it called "the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization." A...

    Nuclear Power: If Iran has "legitimate energy concerns" that make its nuclear plants OK, doesn't the energy-starved U.S.? Why doesn't Iran, with the second-largest proven oil reserves, just build some refineries?Normally, a nation with significant oil resources that decides to develop nuclear power would and should be praised for its prudence. Nuclear power is an emission-free domestic form of energy that is good for the environment and the economy.

    Note: The following blog entry is a quote: Ahmadinejad: Islamic Revolution Has No Borders In a June 3 speech commemorating the death of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the Islamic revolution has no borders and must not be limited to Iranian territory only. He said that the arrogant capitalist, liberal-democrat regimes had reached their end, and in their stead a regime that carries out the directives of the divine prophets was emerging. He called for acting to rapidly establish just regimes in the world, otherwise the "satans" would impose new...

    “President Barack Obama told Iran’s people and leaders that the United States wants to engage with their country and end decades of strained relationship, but not unless their officials stop making threats,” reports the Associated Press. “Obama on Friday released a video message with Farsi subtitles that urged the two countries to resolve their long-standing differences. His video was timed to the festival of Nowruz (no-ROOZ), which means ‘new day.’ It marks the arrival of spring and is a major holiday in Iran.” Excerpts: “So in this season of new beginnings I would like to speak clearly to Iran’s leaders....

    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.

    By MICHAEL LEDEEN Last week Iran put its own telecommunications satellite into orbit. U.S. officials in the White House, the State Department and the Pentagon were certainly right to warn that this shows that the mullahs have now mastered the technology needed to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles. But the terror masters in Tehran believe the satellite has an even greater significance -- another step toward the return of the Shiite messiah, or Mahdi, the long-vanished 12th Imam. Many Iranian leaders believe that the 12th Imam will return in the Last Days, which will be marked by global chaos and conflict,...

    I'm no psychoanalyst (nor do I play one on TV) but this wacko is very very frightening. Ahmadinejad thinks that his job is to hasten the coming of the Muslim Messiah and guess how he intends to get there?.... ...Ahmadinejad is convinced that he has been chosen by God to hasten the Mahdi's return. The way to achieve this goal for the Iranian president is the occurrence of a nuclear Holocaust. And this is why it is so vital for Ahmadinejad that Iran acquires a nuclear weapon. What does any of that have to do with the the satellite launched...

    (I'reading a fascinating book calledThe Siege of Mecca by Yaroslav Trofimov. I came across of section I thought Freepers might find interesting. It has to do with the Muslim concept of the "End of Days" and part played in it by Jesus Christ. It is from Chapter 5, pp. 47-48. (P.S. I having to type this in, so please forgive by hunt-and-peck fingers. Hopefully there's not too many typos.) ================================================= "The idea of a Mahdi has fuel Muslim imagination for centuries. There is no mention of it in the Quran itself . But the Phophet Mohammed, according to some nattators,...
