Most Dangerous Men In The World, Part 2

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

On October 26 2005, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, newly anointed President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, said;

"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, any Islamic leader who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world."

"There is no doubt that the new wave of attacks in Palestine will wipe off this stigma ([Israel) from the face of the Islamic world."

"As the imam (Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini) said, Israel must be wiped off the map."

Five years previously, former Iranian president Hashemi Rafsanjani called for a Muslim state to annihilate Israel with a nuclear strike.

Ahmadinejad continues his bluster and threats today. He has conducted military maneuvers that have included multiple ballistic missile launches.

On July 9, Iran test-fired up to nine ballistic missiles near the Strait of Hormuz, through which much of the world’s oil supplies pass.

This would put American and Israeli military bases across the Middle East within striking distance of these missiles, including the ballistic Shahab-3.

General Hossein Salami, air force commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said the launches were intended to “demonstrate our resolve and might against enemies who in recent weeks have threatened Iran with harsh language. Our hands are always on the trigger and our missiles are ready for launch,” General Salami made it clear that he was talking about the United States and Israel.

Iran has recently said they are attempting to launch satellites into orbit around the earth. . The long-range ballistic technology used to put satellites into space can also be used for launching weapons, namely, nuclear warheads. (click here for the full story)

Ahmadinejad believes that he is chosen by Allah to set into motion the events that will result in the return of the Hidden Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, also known as the Twelfth Imam. (click here for detail)

al-Mahdi’s return is the most significant event in the future for the Shi'ites and has tremendous eschatological consequences. According to islamic lore, al-Mahdi’s return will occur shortly before the Final Judgement and the end of history.

al-Mahdi will return as the head of the forces of righteousness and do battle with the forces of evil in the final apocalyptic battle. When evil has been defeated, al-Mahdi will rule the world for several years under a perfect government and bring about a perfect spirituality among the peoples of the world.

Ahmadinejad believes this and is willing to do anything to initiate al-Mahdi return, including starting a nuclear war.

Tomorrow, Barack Hussein Obama
