  • Islamic Extremists Are Trying to Hasten the Coming of the Mahdi

    National Review ^ | September 11, 2015 | Joel C. Rosenberg
    To misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it. Fourteen years ago — on September 11, 2001 — America was blindsided by the forces of radical Islam. Pre-9/11, American leaders rightly understood that the vast majority of the world’s Muslims were generally peace-loving people who posed no threat to our homeland. But they failed to adequately comprehend, much less counter, the theology, political ideology, and operational strategy of men like Osama bin Laden. The results were devastating. The attacks against the World Trade Center, against the Pentagon, and over Shanksville, Pa., killed nearly 3,000...

    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...

    "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...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 01/06/2014 | David Solway
    In a fascinating article for FrontPage Magazine titled “Now the Twelfth Imam Can Come,” scholar of Islam Robert Spencer provides a crash course on the nature of Twelver Shi’ite theology, with particular reference to a nuclearizing Iran. Shi’ites believe in the return of the so-called Twelfth Imam who is descended from Mohammed’s son-in-law Ali ibn Abni Talib, the fourth caliph assassinated in 661 in a succession war, after which the split between Sunnis and Shi’ites eventually became permanent. As Spencer explains, the Shi’ites continued a line of imams, “members of Muhammad’s household and his prophetic heirs. Each one in...

    Joel Rosenberg announces the release of Damascus Countdown that completes the Twelfth Imam trilogy, a book endorsed by “…former presidential candidate, Rich Santorum and radio host, Rush Limbaugh…” www.flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/ Rosenberg’s realistic portrayal of the unrest and division in the Middle East, Jerusalem and the anticipated appearance of the prophetic Twelfth Imam is chilling, dramatic and real. The Tehran Initiative, second in the series, ended with covert agent David Shirazi, aka Mr. Tabrizi’s meeting with the Twelfth Imam’s aide to deliver the highly prized SAT phones, that unbeknownst to them were converted by the CIA. Damascus Countdown begins with that meeting.

    Several years ago, prior to my retirement from the CIA, I was meeting with a senior Iranian asset in the Middle East. I had finished debriefing him on the intelligence he had to provide, and we had launched into a more expansive conversation about the overall direction of American policy toward Iran. I was trying to explain the rationale behind our sanctions regime and the thought process that had led us to conclude that we could persuade the Islamic Republic of Iran to modify its behavior. The asset interrupted me. "You really don't have any idea who you are dealing...

    The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people. The doctrine includes wiping out Israeli assets and Jewish people worldwide. 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.

    “Occupy Wall Street” and associated protests in U.S. cities will usher in the American equivalent of the “Islamic awakening” in the Middle East and lead to the downfall of capitalism, a senior Iranian military officer said at the weekend. Another top security official also predicted the protests would result in the collapse of the U.S. political system. And Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the opportunity to call for the current world order to be replaced by the rule of the messianic Shi’ite figure known as the 12th imam, prophesied to emerge at a time of global chaos.

    'Arab Spring' Part of Iranian Plot to Dominate By Reza Kahlili For the first time, an official entity of Iran's Islamic government has detailed the horrific goal of the regime: destroy America and Israel as part of the Muslim "awakening" sweeping Africa and the Middle East. That "awakening," which the West has labeled the "Arab Spring," is all part of Iran's messianic complex in which it sees itself as the spearhead of a worldwide revolution in which the Shiite version of Islam will dominate humanity.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims the United States is attempting to thwart the return of mankind's savior, according to reports from Al Arabiya, a television news station based in Dubai. Ahmadinejad reportedly claims he has documented evidence that the U.S. is blocking the return of Mahdi, the Imam believed by Muslims to be the savior. “We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a speech on Monday, according to Al Arabiya. "They have...

    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....

    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'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.

    QOM, Iran -- Iran's president believes Allah has chosen him to prepare the world for the coming of an Islamic 'savior' called the Mahdi. But before the Mahdi's return, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes there must be global chaos - even if he has to create it himself. Whether it's his belief that Israel should be wiped off the map, denials of the Holocaust, obsession with going nuclear, or support for radical Islamic terrorist groups, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a man on a divine mission. To understand him, and that mission, you have travel to the small dusty village of Jamkaran tucked in...

    UPDATED: War clouds continue to build in the epicenter. Last month in Rome, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed that the United States and Israel would soon be "annihilated," language he had not used so explicitly since October 2005 when he promised to wipe Israel "off the map" and urged Muslims to "envision a world without the United States." This week, his regime authorized a new series of Iranian war games. He ordered the digging of 320,000 graves to bury the enemies of Islam. He is calling for the unification of the Islamic world politically and economically, including the creation of...
