Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad beckons the Mahdi

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad beckons the Mahdi

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is certain that the Mahdi is behind the civil unrest and revolution divine awakening in the Middle East.


But the Iranian President's call for the Islamic Messiah known as the Mahdi to return may be a cause of concern for Israel and the United States of America.

Ahmadinejad is part of a radical Islamic sect which believes the return of the Mahdi, who is also known as the 12th Imam, can be accelerated by man's actions and that the destruction of the 'Little Satan' (Israel) and the 'Great Satan' (America) will hasten his return.

In the past he has said "Oh, God, hasten the arrival of Imam Mahdi and grant him good health and victory and make us his followers,"

This notion is most prevalent in Ahmadinejad's threats against Israel and his continued support for terrorist groups throughout the Middle East.

Muslims believe the Mahdi will unite both Sunnis and Shias together and will be accompanied by Jesus Christ who is called Isa in the Muslim faith.

The Mahdi will only come after a period of chaos, flooding, wars and famine (a far cry from the situation today, yes?).

So where is this Mahdi?

He is down a well in a mosque in the village of Jamkaran which is covered by a green metal box of course, well that's what Shia Muslims believe and he is waiting to return after he disappeared in the 9th century.

So if you see Mahmoud Ahmadinejad staring down the well cheering with a brass band at the other end you will know why.

The 12th Imam is also the direct descendant of the prophet Mohammed but there is great issue taken by this belief by Sunni Muslims who believe the Mahdi is yet to be born and will be descended from Fatima who was the daughter of Mohammed.

However there is growing controversy amongst Christians and theologians over whether or not the Mahdi is the Christian Antichrist.

Both Antichrist and Mahdi will rule for seven years (although many clerics believe that may be 9 years or even nineteen years) yet the Muslim faith clearly states that the Mahdi will fight the Antichrist next to Jesus so there is much interpretation to and division between both sides, but it also points the way to something that Christians are united in fearing.

That fear is that a one world religion would, according to interpretations of the Bible's Book of Revelations, throw up 'the False Prophet' who will rise in the last days.

But it is not only the Iranian President who is aligned with apocalyptic cults.

George Bush thicker Jnr is also said to have been influenced by the notion of trying to hasten the return of Jesus (who he supposedly believes in and worships yet exhibits no signs of Christian morality in any shape or form) whilst instigating the 'war on terriers terrorists' via his destabilising the Middle East by bombing it because a family friend got the blame for destroying the Twin Towers on 9/11.

So it is beginning to look like the leaders of this world are united in at least one thing.

Armageddon …… oh well at least some common ground has been found but it does make you wonder if the entire global economic and political imbalances are deliberate and well structured with a specific outcome.

Nah! That's paranoid and conspiratorial rubbish ……. isn't it?

    Whar rubbish, Mr. Davies… tells how little one needs to know to be a reporter these days.

    "He is down a well in a mosque in the village of Jamkaran which is covered by a green metal box of course, well that’s what Shia Muslims believe"… "the 9th Imam"…. where the heck are you getting your info from..???

    If you're that keen to write about the shias, go read up on their beleifs first. It won't fix your bias but at least you won't look so stupid.

  2. Administrator says:

    He possibly got it from a source like this?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamkaran

  3. Hi Muhajir Ali,

    My family are Shia from Iran……even though my name would suggest otherwise…..

  4. Abbas Mirza says:

    yeah wikipedia is a very credible source isn't it………..
    so what if your family in iran are shia, you obv dont talk to them about the religion or our lieing, or they dont know anything about the faith themselves

    9th imam……. shows how narrow minded you are

    down a well……..absolute rubbish

    and if ahmadenejad wanted to nuke israel and america i think he would have done so by now, and why is there a fatwa issued that if the nuclear programme is used for weapens this is forbidden

  5. Jeff Taylor says:

    Hi Abbas Mirza,

    If Iran was not developing weapons then why the secrecy about enrichment programmes? See HERE for a more balanced look at the nuclear issues trying to show both sides.

  6. yeah I'm telling fibs Abbas……I was bored……I'm really half Martian and half Eskimo….

    Well spotted on the 9th Imam typo….

    Of course he is down a well…why else would messages be thrown down it for him to read?

  7. Speaking of wells you may like this…..I am sure Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would love it……

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb3IMTJjzfo

    Of course he wants to nuke Israel (Which I also find strange because of his Jewish roots….his previous surname Sabourjian is Jewish).

    I am sure that it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Ahmadinejad's apocalyptic dream is being coordinated with Radical Christian American Neo-Conservatives….

  8. Abbas Mirza says:

    how do you know iran are making nukes? just because they are making another source of energy without any other countries help which involves nuclear chemicals, you jump to an assumption that iran are making nukes, the media has infiltrated your mind….

    and show me, quote from a islamic scripture saying that Mahdi (a.t.f.s) is down a well, you narrow minded disgrace of a human being

  9. "how do you know iran are making nukes?"……who said they are?

    But good point Abbas……

    Iran having nuclear capabilities does not mean that they will become weapons agreed but Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not the most balanced of people to have any nuclear options at his fingertips.

    Personally I think Bush/Blair/Obama are just as bad as Ahmadinejad…in fact their kill count is greater and they have blood on their hands……but that still doesn't make Ahmadinejad sane does it?

    "show me, quote from a islamic scripture saying that Mahdi (a.t.f.s) is down a well"…….there is no such scripture but that doesn't stop Shia Muslims going to the Well and dropping notes to the Mahdi there does it?

    http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2010/October/The-Mahdi-Why-Iran-is-Seeking-Global-Destruction/

    There is nothing in Islamic scripture to say that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth yet many Muslims take this as a given fact….and don't tell me they don't because as I said earlier I do come from a Muslim family (even though I am not Muslim)…

    Why would they drop the notes down the well if they didn't believe he would go there to pick them up?

    Also Catholics bow down to the Pope yet there is no mention of bowing down to the Pope in the Bible……so why do they do it?

    It doesn't have to be in The Qur'an for it to be a part of a tradition or faith system…….

    "you narrow minded disgrace of a human being"……….out of all the insults you could have concocted that is truly the most inaccurate…..why did you use that specific insult? please be specific….

    I am intrigued……

    When will Muslims, Jews and Christians wake up and see that the leaders of this world are far from enemies…..even though they would have us think they are.

    If any man tells you to hate another man then that man is in the agent of evil.

    If any Imam, Christian preacher or Rabbi tells you to hate another nation, race or man then you know that person is influenced by evil.

    Simple.

    Abbas you seem rather annoyed by my comments….why?

    "the media has infiltrated your mind…."………hahahahaha I hate the media with a passion which is why I write here to open the debate beyond the confines of the norm and I also engage with people in this debate….if it is in the media I rarely believe it but its interesting digging around to find the truth.

    Do you think that I am having a go at your religion? I have in no way said anything against the Islamic faith…..

    Here is a question……why do Muslims go to Jamkaran and give letters, wishes and prayers down a well for the Madhi to read? and yes they DO give letters and prayers there.

    I love it when people come storming in with insults even though they have not properly read the article…..

    Superb stupidity……

  10. Abbas MIrza says:

    well christians dont really follow the bible at all…..it states that woman should wear a vale or shave their hair…Corinthians 11:6 but they fail to do so…

    and even rabi's would agree with me that israel shouldn't be a country… http://www.nkusa.org

    yeh muslims put letters with their prayers on it in a lot of holy shrines, i have visited at least 3 places where people have written eltters and prayed for the Mahdi (a.t.f.s) to answer them, i guess its a spiritual thing as it happens in other faiths as well in christianity and jewdaism, it doesnt mean that the mahdi is down a well, you don't know where he is, he's in hiding

    and when i refered to you as a disgrace i was just enraged which my religion ahs taught me not to be, so i apologise for that, im just sayin you seem very narrow minded

  11. Abbas MIrza says:

    oh yeh… the thing with israel

    how would you feel if someone came and lived in ur garden and said that they wouldnt move because their god told them to, what would you do? im sure you would kick it out

    israel was given to the jews after WW2 by uk america nd those other people involved, but why werent the jews given a piece of germany instead, instead of just taking the land of inocent people?

  12. "how would you feel if someone came and lived in ur garden and said that they wouldnt move because their god told them to, what would you do? im sure you would kick it out"………this is something I struggle with….

    Firstly I am a Christian……The Bible says God promised that specific land/area to the Jews.

    Secondly I am a human…….when I see the way the Palestinians have been treated it makes my blood boil.

    Thirdly I am a Christian…..so I must submit to what I believe is the truth on this matter EVEN THOUGH I as a human do not like to see such treatment of human beings…..it is something I struggle with.

    "well christians dont really follow the bible at all…..it states that woman should wear a vale or shave their hair…Corinthians 11:6 but they fail to do so…"

    Actually I agree there…..to a certain point…..we are fortunate that sin is forgiven through Christ….but we have become lazy in our faith.

    "it doesnt mean that the mahdi is down a well, you don’t know where he is, he’s in hiding"………..where does it say in The Qur’an that he is hiding?….

    By the way apology graciously offered and humbly accepted 🙂

  13. http://www.nkusa.org/ thanks for the link by the way…if you have any more like that I would be interested in seeing them…..

    this is a debate that needs to be expanded upon.

    Muslims are going to be really disappointed if their mahdi turns out to be some guy named Marty
