The "Summation-In-a-Minute" of what is up with Iran:
The President of Iran believes the Muslim Messiah (AKA the 12th Imam) is returning to the world in the next year, from a well (really!) in one of the Mosques in Iran, and that it is the Iranian President's duty/destiny to prepare the world for this.
Mr. Iran President went from a 1% recognition to winning his election, and has poured tons of money into fixing up the Mosque with the well.
But...the big gut grabber is that for the 12th Imam to come back and make paradise for all nice Muslim folk, Israel must be gone. In Iran's point of view, USA is the Great Satan that provides the $ that makes Israel's existence possible, so first the USA needs to get knocked out, and then, without USA protection, Israel/Jerusalem can be wiped clean of Jewish folks.
Mr. Iran President is "full speed ahead" with this project.
Christians speak of the "end times" but they don't have a game plan to MAKE the times come ASAP. This 12th Imam guy will only show up IF the world is knocked into shape (Israel and USA gone.)
So Mr. Iran President is, in his mind, divinely appointed to do any and everything necessary to set the stage. And he has no reason to worry that there *might* be consequences to his actions. After all, paradise awaits. Let's get this show on the road!
And Mr. President is not shy about the fact that a nuclear devise would make that all possible, really quick. It really, really doesn't matter if the bomb messes up stuff, because all that matters is the #12 gets here, and thereby ushers in paradise.
Above is a copy of a post that I posted in 2006. This link from the UK newspaper Telegraph ducuments my concerns. And this article review what Israeli leaders are saying.
Jeepers. I was hoping my 2006 post, which gave a time line of 2-4 years for these events was about to time out as an unfounded concern.
I'm still hoping that a year from now, the 12th Imam will still be missing, and all will still be well with the world. See the post previous to this one to see why I am keeping an eye on the news this week about missile launches that involve North Korea and Iran.
