Message from Mashad

iran.jpgSometimes the clearest part of a message is the setting.  For instance, take Mashad, an exquisite ancient city of Persia.  This is where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that “the laboratory- scale nuclear fuel cycle has been completed.”
It is also the birthplace of the Hojjatieh Society, based in Mashad.  President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad likes them.  A lot. They believe that the Twelfth Imam’s reappearance and the world’s subsequent redemption can’t happen in a period of stability.  In fact, there needs to be, “Global chaos, war and bloodshed.” 
If that’s true, I bet I know how to make the Mahdi would come really quickly then. I bet President Ahmadinejad is thinking the same thing I am.

  1. a) nowhere does that article refer to the mehdi or his messianic return amidst global chaos. in fact, the only current news article stating that position is the uk’s daily mirror, a newspaper which features half-naked women on its cover every morning. their current headline is about george michael getting into a car accident. ie., it’s a tabloid, and can’t be trusted as a source of expertise on middle east affairs.
    b) in an article in the same source you linked to, asharq alawsat, the idea that we’re heading towards a nuclear showdown with iran is seriously tempered.
