Ahmadinejad's Mystical Mahdi Tour...

Hat tip to Cox and Forkum for the cartoon. You can read their related commentary and links HERE.

Ahmadinejad spoke to us again about the return of the "Mahdi":

"I emphatically declare that today’s world, more than ever before, longs for just and righteous people with love for all humanity; and above all longs for the perfect righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet.

O, Almighty God, all men and women are your creatures and you have ordained their guidance and salvation. Bestow upon humanity that thirsts for justice, the perfect human being promised to all by you, and make us among his followers and among those who strive for his return and his cause."

(bold emphasis mine) But gee, it's all about peace and justice, what's wrong with that?

Ahmadinejad is talking about ISLAMIC peace and justice. That means there can be peace only when ALL submit to Islam, and there is no longer any opposition to Islam. And Isamic Justice - isn't that Sharia law?

He also leaves out that the Mahdi will only return when massive chaos, destruction and death have occurred in the world, to open the way for him. His return will be for the purpose of establishing global Islamic rule, and the destruction of all who oppose Islam.

Iranian school children are taught in their textbooks that they must be prepared for the day when they will be called upon to die as martyrs to achieve the destruction of America, the Great Satan, and open the way for the return of the Hidden Imam, a.k.a. the Mahdi.

The Islamic nutters who teach this crap believe that they must attack the infidels to bring about the return of the Mahdi, and that those who die in that cause are martyrs and automatically "saved"; so no matter how many Muslims die, it doesn't matter, they "win" even if they all die trying to kill us. They actually believe that for themselves, it can only be a win/win situation, even if they utterly perish!

Ahmadinejad has said he beleives the Mahdi will return in two years time. Gee, you don't suppose that is why they keep chanting "Death to America", do you? Does anyone still think it's a good idea to let Iran have nuclear weapons? Apparently, Ted Turner does. I suspect he speaks for a lot of Democrats, too.

Here are some pics from the protest outside of the U.N., where 35,000 people gathered to protest against Ahmadinejad:

The MSM seems to have given coverage of this protest a skip, even though they all had reporters there at the UN to cover Ahmadinejad's speech. I'm sure if the protesters had been there to protest George Bush, we would have seen endless and detailed coverage.

Freedom and Justice in Islam
This last link is to an amazing article by historian Bernard Lewis. It touches on several important topics regarding Islam and the West. Bernard maintains that historically, the Muslim world has had it's own kind of democracy, but that attempts to Modernize the Islamic world has not only destroyed traditional power structures and and safeguards, but has also centralized power in a way that has opened the Middle East up to despots and tyranical dictators.

Bernard shows how this was not always so, and how the influence of first the Nazis, and later the Soviets, helped create the kind of governments we see in the Middle East today. Furthermore, religious sects like the Saudi Wahhabis and Iran's Shia have been exploiting the breakdown of traditional Muslim democratic systems, and the modernization Western countries have introduced, to further their own agendas by offering their own versions of "pure" Islam.

Bernard also explains some basic cultural differences, such as the Arab concept of "freedom" which is very different from our own; how the interpretation of European "freedom" is often understood to mean what Muslims mean when they talk about "justice", and how this understanding (or misunderstanding?) has spread throughout the Islamic world...

There is much more, I would say this article is a MUST read! Pat (Born Again Redneck) has the entire article reproduced on his blog; the original source can also be found at Imprimis, HERE.

Its a pity only the average joe seems to sense the clear and present danger of this situation.
The left of center seem to want to just roll over and think its ok ot ignore this.
I just can't figure out how there can be this many apathetic people in one Nation.
