    (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,...

    Now that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has spoken at Columbia University, it's on to the United Nations, where there's a tight security net. As many as 25,000 people from around the metro area and the country flocked to the U.N. to protest Ahmadinejad's visit. Many are demanding an end to Iran's nuclear threat. The NYPD's eye in the sky took security pictures. On the ground, beefy machine-gun toting cops provided an extra layer of protection for Israel's foreign minister as she demand Iran's president be reigned in by the world community.

Instead of assuaging the prim gentlemen in the audience -- who are always willing to suffer through long harangues from third-world despots, as long as they paint the West as omnipresent villain -- Ahmadinejad indulged in warlike hyperbole, threatening to "reconsider" his nation's supposedly peaceful pursuit of nuclear energy if Washington and its allies continued to "impose their will" on Iran.

    A new miracle baby has been born in Bethlehem. That's, at least, what many Palestinians in the birthplace of Jesus believe. Ala Ayyad was born two weeks ago, on the 27th day of Ramadan, known as Lailat al-Kader, the night the Koran was revealed to Muhammad by God. Thousands of Palestinians have been thronging the Aida refugee camp at the northern entrance to Bethlehem to pay their respects to the infant boy, who is being hailed as "the miracle baby of Bethlehem." The timing of his birth was auspicious enough, but his parents were amazed to discover a large birthmark...

    Shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, a few of us Freepers became aware that Ramadan 2003 had special prophetic significance to certain Islamic sects. They are awaiting a spiritual avatar known as the Twelfth Mahdi, who will lead Muslims to great victories in war over the infidels. It's believed that this Mahdi will appear during a Ramadan with both a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse. This double Ramadan eclipse will occur this year, for the first time since 1786, and won't occur again until 2155. For those Muslims who place any credence in this prophecy, this year's Ramadan...

His call to Jihad did not stop at tying himself to Iraq's people, by which he had clearly hoped to provoke Washington into immediate unilateral military action against Saddam Hussein. Nor did it end with his messianic recitation of verses in the Koran that clearly demonstrated he knows the end game is near. Predicting his martyrdom this year, he...
