Fundamentalist Islam: Their Version of the Apocalypse

"Everyone knows where Iran's nuclear weapons will be aimed. Everyone knows they will be put on Shahab rockets, which have been modified so that they can reach Israel.
But did you know....

The president of a country about to go nuclear is a confirmed believer in the Apocalypse. Shiite Islam has its own version of the Messianic return-- the re-appearance of the Twelfth Imam. The more devout believers in Iran pray at the Jamkaran mosque, which houses a well from which, some believe, he will emerge.
When Ahmadinejad unexpectedly won the presidential elections, he immediately gave $17 million of government funds to the shrine. Last month Ahmadinejad said publicly that the main mission of the Islamic Revolution is to pave the way for the reappearance of the Twelfth Imam.
And as in some versions of fundamentalist Christianity, the second coming will be accompanied by the usual trials and tribulations, death and destruction.

Iranian journalist Hossein Bastani reported Ahmadinejad saying in official meetings that the hidden Imam will re-appear in two years.(2007)

So a Holocaust-denying, virulently anti-Semitic, aspiring genocidist,on the verge of acquiring weapons of the apocalypse, believes that the end is not only near but nearer than the next American presidential election.

This kind of man would have, to put it gently, less inhibition about starting Armageddon than a normal person. Indeed, with millennial bliss pending, he would have positive incentive to, as they say in Jewish eschatology, hasten the end."
