Now the Twelfth Imam Can Come

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


12th-ImamAmong the many who decried the Obama Administration’s catastrophic capitulation to the nuclear ambitions of the Islamic Republic of Iran, none spelled out its potential consequences as trenchantly as Israel’s Economy Minister Naftali Bennett: “We awoke this morning to a new reality,” he said Sunday. “A reality in which a bad deal was signed with Iran. A very bad deal. If a nuclear suitcase blows up five years from now in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the deal that was signed this morning.”

If that happens, it will also be because of the Shi’ite belief in the return of the Twelfth Imam. According to Islamic tradition, the dispute between the majority Sunnis and the Shiat Ali (Party of Ali) began upon the death of Muhammad in 632. The Sunnis contended that the prophet of Islam had made no provision for a successor as political, military, and spiritual leader of the Muslim community, and that therefore the Muslims should choose the best man among them as their leader. The nascent Party of Ali, on the contrary, claimed that Muhammad had designated his son-in-law Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor, and that the successor of Muhammad had to be a member of the prophet’s household.

What’s more, far from being a mere functionary, this successor would bear some of Muhammad’s prophetic spirit, as well as infallibility in deciding disputed questions. Ali was finally chosen as the fourth caliph in 656, but in 661 was assassinated. Hassan, his eldest son (and successor, as far as the Shi’ites are concerned), was murdered in 670 on the orders of the Sunni caliph Muawiya. Then the Sunni/Shi’ite split became definitive and permanent when Ali’s younger son, Husayn, was killed in the Battle of Karbala in 680.

The Shi’ites were, thus, founded in loss and defeat, and these became the ongoing distinguishing features of Shi’ite history and piety. After the beheading of Husayn, the Shi’ites continued a succession of Imams, members of Muhammad’s household and his prophetic heirs. Each one in turn, over two centuries, was poisoned on orders of the Sunni caliph. According to the traditions of Twelver Shi’ism, the official religion of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the twelfth of these Imams, a boy of five years old, disappeared under mysterious and disputed circumstances in the year 874 – but remained alive. After his disappearance, he communicated to the world through four agents, the last of whom died in 941. At that point the Twelfth Imam went silent, entering the period of “Great Occultation.”

In his last communiqué to the world, via one of these messengers in 941, this mysterious figure consoled his followers with prophecies regarding his eventual reappearance. The circumstances of that reappearance could, in the hands of Iran’s mad mullahs, visit upon the world calamities of a scale never before seen. And Israel and America will bear the brunt.

“Hearts,” warned Mohammad al-Mahdi, the Twelfth Imam, in his last message, “will become inaccessible to compassion. The earth will be filled with tyranny and violence.” He was speaking of the time of his reappearance, explaining that he would only come back to the world when the evil that Muslims were suffering was at its absolute apex. In this he echoed a Shi’ite tradition of the words of the prophet of Islam himself, Muhammad, who prophesied that the Twelfth Imam would be “the Resurrector” and explained: “He will fill the world with peace and justice as today it is filled with violence and tyranny.”

That violence and tyranny is not incidental to the theology of the Twelfth Imam, which has revenge as its core and essence. The Shi’ites began to teach that the Twelfth Imam would return at a time when the Muslims were oppressed as never before, and suffering worse than ever. The Imam, in the company of Jesus (re-imagined, as in Sunni Islam, as a Muslim prophet), would finally end the horrific persecution of the true believers, taking up arms against their enemies and conquering and Islamizing the world.

This eschatological revenge fantasy would be of no concern to anyone but pious Shi’ites and religious anthropologists were it not for the element of Shi’ite tradition that requires that the earth be “filled with tyranny and violence” before the Twelfth Imam can return.

There is no requirement that non-Muslims must be responsible for that violence; Shi’ites filled with religious fervor, like the Ayatollah Khamenei and the mullahs behind him, could hasten the Twelfth Imam’s return and the consummation of all things by, say, launching a nuclear strike against Tel Aviv or some other Infidel outpost, knowing that by doing so they would almost certainly be provoking a retaliatory strike that would subject the Muslims in Iran to more defeat and repression than even the Shi’ites had previously suffered. That would be enough to bring the Twelfth Imam out of the well where he is said to be hiding.

But that is a matter of religious hope and speculation; the devastation that would supposedly lead to his reappearance, however, would be all too real. The two powers that the Iranian mullahs have long designated as the “Great Satan” and the “Little Satan” – America and Israel – would be the only targets of an Iranian attempt to hasten the Twelfth Imam’s coming.

A nuclear strike from Tehran into Israel could kill, estimates say, upwards of twenty million people, completely destroying the Jewish State.

Barack Obama, by acceding to the Iranians’ nuclear ambitions, has given a tremendous impetus to these revenge fantasies, probably not realizing or caring that Iran’s mullahs take the prophesies of the Twelfth Imam very seriously indeed – seriously enough for them to bet the entire world upon them. Obama has just made the odds appear to them to be considerably more favorable than they were just a week ago.

  • Biff Henderson

    Ayatollah Khamenei and other members of Shi’ite Rat Pack informed Iranians in July of 2010 that he personally had an audience with the Mohammad al-Mahdi and he is the personal representative for the well-dweller on earth. He didn’t receive a phone call from one of the many cell phones the faithful throw into this pit but an eyeball to eyeball met with the Twelfth Imam. They aren’t called the Mad Mullahs for nothing.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      Mr. Henderson, make it your goal today to buy a copy of the book “The Islamic Anti-Christ, The Shocking Truth About the Real Nature of the Beast” by Joel Richardson. Fascinating book to say the least on the subject of the Islamic “messiah” or “Mahdi.” There is none on the market like that book.

      • Biff Henderson

        I’I’ve heard nothing but praise for Joel Richardson’s book. Robert Spencer’s article neatly wraps up the Mad Mullah’s motivations vis-a-vis Shi’ite eschatology and the precarious implications they pose for the world at large. Obamanation’s reckless approach to a rogue state that on a daily basis threatens to plunge the world into war is nothing short of criminal.

    • Notalibfool

      Sounds like Ayatollah Khamenei needs psychiatric care.

      • defcon 4

        The psychopathy of islam is normative in any islamic state, and challenging it publicly, well that is the act of a mad man.

      • Drakken

        No, they need a lead injection or a taste of napalm.

    • Bree

      I do believe that Ayatollah forgot the part in the hadiths that stated there will be false al-Mahdi to come before the true one. Just as the Qur’an stated there will be other false prophets at the time of tribulation. Perhaps the jihadist rebels in Syria (supported by Obama) are getting weapons supplied to make sure that everyone in the world will relate these radicals to the true army of al-Mahdi. Therefore, deceiving all the world into supporting the Zionist agenda with the likes of Obama etc.

  • truebearing

    Obama the Enabler. That is how history will remember him….if there is anyone left to write or read it. He has wrenched open Pandora’s Box, and human beings will pay an unprecedented price.

        The Muslim Brotherhood of Saudi Arabia bought him the Nobel prize. The prize is no longer worth anything to the world. Take a look at the league of monsters who have received, or are slated to receive the award. You might be surprised.

    • ZombieReady

      He is not an enabler, he is a co-conspirator. He is a muslim, plane and simple. Don’t believe his mention occasionally of Jesus meaning his is christian. As this article states, muslims believe there was a Jesus, but that he was just a prophet. The world is heading to the tribulation hour. The only prepping you need to do is get grounded in the Lord. If you are not a christian, then yes buy food and ammo, and don’t take the mark.

  • Hass

    I very much doubt Iranian Nukes would reach Israel, they would be knocked out before they reached their target, while at the same time, Israel would be sending them 12 Nukes to give them the chaos they so desperately want.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      12 nukes would bring more than chaos!

    • defcon 4

      I think that’s wishful thinking. Iran could always employ suicidal muslimes to deliver its nukes (i.e. suicide bombers in dump trucks or garbage trucks or even boats or submarines).

      • Hass

        Yes matey, you are correct. I somehow thought the technology to knock out intercontinental Ballistic missiles was pretty good. And I totally forgot about the other means. Silly me.

          Hass, you never lived in an islamic state did you?

          • Hass

            I was born in Nice, Lebo dad and French mum. We moved to Leb when I was 2 then came to Oz 5 yrs later.

            Poor Lebanon. I heard Beirut was a beautiful city and Lebanon a civilised place, before the muslimes took over.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Yeah, I had some Christian Lebanese friends back in the day. They never went back. I don’t blame them. They warned me from going there, too.

    • NAHALKIDES

      Don’t be too sure – Israel has some air-defense capabilities, of course, but there is no guarantee they could knock down multiple missiles launched from Iran. For that matter, there are other delivery mechanisms (the “suitcase nuke”) that would probably be a better choice – remember, there are smuggling tunnels everywhere, and Hezbollah could be tasked with delivering the nuke to Tel-Aviv.

      No, I doubt Israel will depend on being able to stop Iranian nukes in mid-flight – I certainly wouldn’t take that gamble. Right now, the Israeli leadership is going over its intelligence estimates as to how close Iran is to building its first bomb and deciding whether it can wait another six months or not. But I don’t expect them to wait for the results of the 2016 American Presidential election, I expect them to begin planning to attack Iran now without American help. That is the only good thing about what Obama has done – no one in Israel can still entertain any illusions about him being serious about stopping Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Israel is on its own now, and they know it. See Daniel’s piece from yesterday.

  • Moa

    The Iranians want to destroy the Jews in Israel and America because of this (as well as plenty of other passages calling for genocide)

    hadith Sahih Muslim 6985:

    “…
    Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as
    saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight
    against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would
    hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would
    say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and
    kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the
    Jews.”

    • A Z

      So is Gharqad the original ent?

      Just kidding, I never head the last part of that Hadith. This just keeps getting better and better.

      • defcon 4

        There are two other “authentic” hadith that echo the same genocidal Jew hatred, but don’t mention the Gharqad tree.

      • defcon 4

        WHere can I buy some Gharqad trees? I think I need to do some planting.

  • Jason

    I hope to god that when Iran does launch a nuke that we wont have weak people like Obama, Cameron etc leading the west. When it does (When, not if) we’re going to need strong action.

    This 12th Imam thing is just an indication of how much Islam can distort and play with the minds of people. It truly is a cult on a global scale.

    • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

      It certainly seems Israel will soon have to protect itself by launching a preemptive strike against Iran and that would more than likely be the beginning of what the Bible describes as “birth pangs” leading up to an eventual peace treaty that Israel will be forced into signing, a peace treaty with the devil himself. If that peace treaty is a 7 year promise, hold onto your hats and grab your behind.

      • Jason

        I dont hold much faith in Biblical prophecies, about as much as this 12th Imam stuff. However, Israel signing a ‘Peace Treaty’ would be the death of Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East. Israel knows that, and therefore it is more than likely Israel will launch a preemptive strike against Iran if Iran develops nuclear weapons. Israel has what we once had, courage to stand up for ourselves. For that, I applaud them. No way will they go down the path of appeasement, not when the last time that happened the Jews were almost wiped out. Perhaps Israel will be that leader for the west?

        • NAHALKIDES

          Israel has not the size nor the strength to lead the entire West, much of which has become anti-Semitic in any case. How deeply disturbing it is that neither Western Europe nor the U.S. has the courage or the conviction to stop Iran before it’s too late. So it’s up to Israel – by itself – to stop a nation much larger than itself. When Israel finally strikes Iran, no one can say what the consequences will be, but they will certainly be worse than if a United West had decapitated the Iranian government and de-Islamified the country – the only way to a permanent peace.

        • Beverley

          Jason I believe in Biblical prophecies I see it unfolding before my eyes. You really need to do a study on the Book of Daniel and Revelation. But in any case I always say this to unbelievers … soon we will all know the truth one way or another. I do know that any intelligent person who has studied these books must come away enlightened. Please do yourself a favor go to http://www.moriel.org under sermons. He is a Jewish gentleman but a christian. He is a teacher like no other.

          • Jason

            I respect your faith mate. I really do. However, I’m fine with what I am, a cultural Catholic, who sees the value in Christ’s teachings, but is agnostic on the existence of God.

          • JesusmyKing

            There’s some videos on the web on You Tube (10 – I think) under the title “A Case for Creation”. Absolutely fantastic. If ANYONE can watch these and still not believe in God; well, he/she just isn’t one of God’s chosen children and thus doesn’t have the ability to understand and accept pure truth and logic AND science. You might want to take a look at these, you’re eternal soul is in jeopardy.

  • wildjew

    In the years to come, when Iran has many hundreds of these nuclear devices, warheads, etc., will Israel or Tel Aviv (the little Satan) be Iran’s favored target? Americans and the Europeans appear to be complacent about the Iranian threat. Surely Israel will be the target of Iranian wrath. Like the Holocaust, will it be the Jews who are again massively slaughtered leaving the rest of the world free from harm?

    • ImNoDhimmi

      First the Jews, then everyone else.

      • Notalibfool

        Yes, that seems to be the pattern. First they attack Jews. When the Jews are gone, then they go after Christians and other religious groups.

        We are fools to assume that allowing the destruction of Israel will make us safer. We need Israel to be strong.

      • wildjew

        This American president seems bent on Iran (or Islam) obliterating millions of Jews. I think it is possible, even likely. Don’t you? Maybe the Holy One of Israel will protect Israel from a nuclear holocaust. He can protect Israel, can He not? Who will protect the United States?

        • NAHALKIDES

          Not Obama, that’s for sure.

    • defcon 4

      The upper bound on the number of Hindus slaughtered by muslimes across centuries of islamic invasions in the Indian sub-continent is 80 million, with the latest addition to that body count being the 2.5 to 3 million Hindus slaughtered in Bangladesh, by muslimes, in the 1970′s:

      http://www.hindunet.org/hindu_history/modern/hindu_bangla.html

      • Notalibfool

        But notice how no one ever wants to talk about that. However they are quite willing to whine and moan about the “horrible” Crusades.

        The number of Muslims killed during the Crusades was no where near the number of Hindus slaughtered in India.

        • NAHALKIDES

          And the Crusades were a defensive action! They wouldn’t have been necessary if Muslims hadn’t spent 4 centuries taking what didn’t belong to them.

          • Notalibfool

            Exactly! And even to this day Muslims and the Left complain about the Crusades.

    • glpage

      Israel first, then the USA. I think the only way Iran will ever have hundreds of nuclear devices is if they wait until they have stockpiled them before detonating one. I’m not sure they will wait that long. Once they have a dozen or so they will use them.

      • wildjew

        You could be right. One thing I have learned from the author of this piece (from his books) quoting the Qur’an, is the ideal of “patience” in Islam. Devout Muslims are very patient as are the Iranians. These are not stupid people. Other than testing their first weapon in some remote location, should Iran use their weapons when they have only a dozen or so, that would likely be the end of Iran as a global threat. The response from Israel and other nuclear powers could be devastating. Better to wait. Better to spread these weapons around the globe to their terror cells in South America, in the United States, Europe, etc. Better to aim ICBMs at the U.S. Europe and Israel. Better to go out with a massive death count; hundreds of millions; maybe billions. That’s the way I see it but you could be right. The Iranians could simply be suicidal and not care how much damage, how many casualties they inflict, so long as they inflict some pain.

        • Wolfthatknowsall

          The former “moderate” President of Iran, Rafsanjani, said that Iran could destroy Israel, but would survive a total nuclear response, in return. His theory was that Iran is a large country, and Israel is small. Who cares if 40 million or so of his own countrymen die, right?

          • wildjew

            That’s right. The territory of Islam is vast.

  • 11bravo

    Iranian lead negotiator (while he was running for president said, ” Last May 24, Saeed Jalili, Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator and leading presidential candidate said during a campaign event in Tehran: “(The goal of Iran and its allies is to) uproot capitalism, Zionism and Communism, and promote the discourse of pure Islam in the world.”

    How does any nation negotiate with that?

    They don’t!!! Unless they are adolescent MORONS.

    • defcon 4

      Or they are having their offshore bank accounts packed full of islam0fascist petrodollars as I suspect the majority of US politicians are.

  • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

    One cannot stop biblical prophecy from becoming a reality. Without setting dates, it certainly seems accurate to say we are quickly approaching the “last days” where hell on earth becomes our experience. For anyone who hasn’t read the book titled, The Islamic Anti-Christ, The Shocking Truth About the Real Nature of the Beast by Joel Richardson. I highly recommend you read the book. Mr. Richardson did an amazing job proving the Islamic “Mahdi” is identical to the Christian “Anti-Christ.”

  • http://unsealing-the-seven-seals.blogspot.com/ Michael_Cecil

    The doctrine of the “mahdi” was concocted by the Muslim religious ‘authorities’ for the purpose of preserving their own wealth and power.

    Its purpose is to *distract* Muslims from recognizing that the Michael mentioned in Sura 2, verse 98 of the Quran is the same Michael whose arrival is Prophesied in Chapter 12, verse 1 of the Book of Daniel.

    The writings under my profile explain this in more detail.

  • vladimirval

    I said it before and I’ll say it again. The west’s current conflict is more dangerous than any we faced in WWI, WWII, and the Soviet Union. The enemies of the past all wanted to win but staying alive after any showdown was their big concern. Our current enemy is ok with total initialization of all sides. They believe that a wonderful life of self overindulgence and debauchery awaits them in the after life. This kind of an enemy is the most dangerous. They are all suicide bombers willing to blow them selves up as long as they can take us with them.

    • WhiteHunter

      Exactly right: There’s no way to deter a suicide bomber–or an entire regime full of them–with a threat of retaliation, since, unlike the Soviets, he has, by definition, no instinct for self preservation. The only way to prevent such an attack is with a devastating pre-emptive strike that completely obliterates him/them so that he/they cease to exist. Then let the idiots, buffoons, cannibals, communists, and terrorists at the U.N. jabber themselves hoarse about it after the fait accompli.

      • ZombieReady

        Exactly, the Mullahs believe in the MAD doctrine(Mutual assured destruction) only they welcome it and think that 70 virgins await them in paradise. If they only new that what really awaits them is hell, a place prepared for the devil and his angels.

    • Wolfthatknowsall

      Well-stated. As a security expert, I can tell you that there is no security system tight enough to stop an attack by people willing to die for their beliefs. They will, eventually, get through the security.

      An uncle of mine talked of the terror when he manned a destroyer’s anti-aircraft battery against kamikazes during the Second World War. His battery was radar-guided and shot down countless planes, and yet the ship was still hit. Many of his shipmates were killed and wounded.

  • popseal

    Islam is a dangerous, suicidal superstition that was founded 1400 years ago by a known killer. CNN, PBS, and CAIR sing in the same hellish choir.

  • Paul of Alexandria

    Well, let’s hope that the Israeli anti-missile systems are up to snuff.

    • defcon 4

      No ABM system is 100% effective. If an ABM system can knockdown 99% of ballilstic missiles fired, what about that 1%?

      • Paul of Alexandria

        1) Better 1% than 100%.

        2) It’s called deterrence. For most enemies (admittedly Islam operates under some different rules) if the probability of success – and getting away with it – isn’t high enough they won’t even try. This is why MAD worked and why SDI bankrupted the USSR. It’s not that the Russians couldn’t have launched a strike against the U.S., but that there was no way to do so and survive themselves. Enough of our warheads and bombers would survive to retaliate.

        Of course in this situation the problem is different – as Robert Spencer pointed out – because the other side doesn’t care if they are laid waste. Actually, I rather suspect that if Israel could confidently target the imams themselves, that it would have a deterrent value, but being that precise is a bit problematical. So, we’re back to 1) – try to catch as many as you can.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          “For most enemies (admittedly Islam operates under some different rules) if the probability of success – and getting away with it – isn’t high enough they won’t even try…”

          You’re parenthetic remark is actually the most salient point.

          • Paul of Alexandria

            That’s a very real problem. At least we knew that the Soviets took as many precautions as we do. I’ve heard that we’ve been working under the radar with Pakistan to help ensure safeguards on their nuclear weapons (and I imagine the Indians also), but with the Iranians there’s no guarantee.

          • defcon 4

            I’m amazed Pakistain’s nukes haven’t been used by the many islam0nazi terrorist groups. Pakistain’s leadership must be getting large amounts of jizya to keep their nuclear demon bottled up for later use against the najjis kaffir.

          • Paul of Alexandria

            I rather imagine that the Indians are keeping a very close eye on them too.

          • A Z

            We gave the Russians technology to ensure that one person could not launch a nuke during the Cold War.

            The book “Red Star Rogue” asserts that a cabal in the Soviet Union attempted a 1st strike on Hawaii using an obsolete nuke sub using uranium mined in China.

            The type of sub used had been sold to China and the Soviet Union was retiring them and had few left in active service. The uranium had was a raw material exchanged by China exchange for Russian tech. The uranium had a isotopic fingerprint that would have identified it as having been mined in China. Remember the movie “Sum of All Fears”, where they conducted an analysis of the nuclear debris to identify the putative origin of the bomb.

            The cabal including the #3 politburo guy (the communist philosopher/theologian) that planned the strike had plausible deniability.

            Very good article and accurate right up to this: “Obama probably not realizing or caring that Iran’s mullahs take the prophesies of the Twelfth Imam very seriously indeed ”
            That part is grossly inaccurate.

          • defcon 4

            Like any islam0fascist state, Pakistain is only as good as its latest islam0fascist dictator. Pakistain is one coup away from handing off its nukes to any or all of the plethora of islam0fascist terrorist organizations who want to kill for their death god.

          They spend so much time enriching themselves. they spend so much time ensuring their family has wealth in perpetuity.

          70 or 80 year old men who might kick the bucket any day may not fear death. they do fear for their family lines. Otherwise they would not go to such great lengths of corruption and beggar their fellow countrymen.

      The zero wants the destruction of the state of Israel, maybe even a non-violent destruction that involves the creation of yet another islam0fascist state in Israel’s place.

    • Beverley

      Someone has to be the forerunner of all that is going to happen. In other words someone has to set everything up in place like a chess game. Whether he knows what he is doing or is a ‘tool’.

      • CorruptionInColumbia

        Exactly right!!!! It is much like the way the Bush Family and the Clintons have set up this country, for Obama to finish destroying it.

  • john spielman

    it’s amazing to me how much Islam, that Satanic Antichrist doctrine dictated to an unsuspecting Mohammed by a demon masquerading as an angel of light (as St Paul said), fits with the prophesies of the end times in the Bible. Islam is a counter fit of the the truth, and portrays good as evil and evil as good. Any one who believe the lies Muhammed spoke is deceived by the evil one, and God’s judgement on him still stands (John 3:18)

  • Bookhunter

    This will not end well.

    • defcon 4

      Does anything end well for the najjis kaffir in islamic states? By najjis kaffir I include not only those who have faiths other than islam, but those who have no faith whatsoever.

  • Harry Binn

    Actually, Saudi Arabia (the hated Sunni of the Shiites by this article) is against enabling Iran to get the bomb as well. I can see Iran destroying Mecca and then blaming Israel and the US and all infidels for that act and enraging all remaining Muslims to rise up in a holy war. That would ensure that most countries would be to busy dealing with internal wars to retaliate against them.

    • defcon 4

      A holy war w/muslimes? I can hardly wait — I have firearms and I know how to use them.

  • http://historyscoper.com/ T.L. Winslow

    Screw Pres. Obama. He’s gambling with Israeli blood. There is only one tolerable policy regarding Iran, and that’s Zero Tolerance for Centrifuges. Else Israel has no choice but to NUKE IRAN, at least the nuclear facilities in the mountain recesses. Is there something about Never Again they don’t understand?

    GO ISRAEL!

  • Paul of Alexandria

    Yes, but remember “no man knows the date or time.” I highly advise against saying that this or that event or point in time is a fulfillment of a specific prophecy. Rather, as with the parable of the foolish and wise virgins waiting for the wedding party: be always prepared.

    The 12th imam is a ripoff of the 12 apostles. The only original thought these morons have ever had is the idea to strap bombs to their chests.

    • Cuppa

      Most of Christianity was ripped off from other religions.

      • Elizabeth capecod

        Thankfully it declined to rip off the religious practice of wearing explosive vests.

        • Cuppa

          They just drive truck bombs up to federal buildings instead.

          • Elizabeth capecod

            You should do some research before you regurgitate liberal nonsense. You’re not on some liberal website that eats lies up like so much bullsh!t.
            McVeigh was anti government – not a religious zealot.
            In McVeigh’s own testimony, he admitted that his motive was in retaliation of the Waco massacre, as he described it.
            It’s pretty desperate , though, trying to make an equivalence between this single incident and hundreds of terror attacks waged around the world in the name of jihad, the 6th pillar of Islam.

          • Cuppa

            It must be exhausting being terrified of everyone who isn’t you.

            What an idiot, McVeigh never claimed to be doing G-d’s work. I don’t think he ever referred to the bible as his influence or motivation. But don’t let facts get in the way of your disgusting attempt at equating islam w/CHristianity in the 21st century. Oops, but that’s right McVeigh’s attack didn’t happen in the 21st century.

          • Paul of Alexandria

            What are you talking about? No Christian has done such a thing, especially not in the name of Jesus. Please temper your secular-humanist ramblings with a little intelligence.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Timothy McViegh was an America hating leftist – just like every other non-islamopithecine domestic terrorist in American history. Islamopithecines aside,……… Every mass shooter? A leftist. Every mad bomber? A leftist. Every serial killer? A leftist.

        Interesting concept, but aside from the obvious, pervasive, unavoidable Judaic influence, what else is there? Hellenistic?

      • Paul of Alexandria

        Er, no. Christianity is the fulfillment of Judaism (thus Judeo-Christianity). Otherwise, if you bother to actually study it, it shares very little with any other religion.

      • ziggy zoggy

        And what other religions besides Judaism would those be, you hopeless ignoramus?

          • Liberalism is their religion

            You stupid low information complacent fool. As kasandra pointed out, it is not that people on this site or the author of the article believe this, the point is that THE MUSLIMS believe it. Did you not understand?????? The article says the Muslims believe they can accelerate the 12th IMAMs return by creating more violence against America which would cause America to oppress the Muslims. Got it NOW??????

          • Cuppa

            And evangelical Christians believe they need to convert Jews to hasten Armageddon. You and they are all nuts.

          • Liberalism is their religion

          • JAFO

            Actually Cuppa you are as ignorant about Christianity as you are about Islam. Christians are called to tell others of the gospel not convert them. Any conversion that may take place happens in a relationship between that individual and God.

            Nor has the timing of Armageddon have anything to do with Jewish converts by Christians. The time of which you speak is called “The Time of Jacobs Trouble”. But since you have no interest in Christianity, Islam or judaism I doubt you’d be interested in further explanation.

            However, when the day comes that you kneel before the Lord of Lords and King of kings…. Be sure to tell Him you don’t believe He exists. I’m sure He will be impressed …

    Obama wants to relocate the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See to the American Embassy in Italy. The communist mayor in New York dosent want any Catholics on his religious advisory board. You don’t have to be Catholic to note the adversarial relations between the Communist and the Church. Then Cardinal Eugeno Pacelli told then President FDR that the U.S. was poised to go Communist, FDR disputed this thinking that the U.S. was poised to go Fascist. It seems Pope Pius XII (then Cardinal Pacelli) was correct. There is an open communist aggression here in the U.S.

  • http://freedomfromdemocracy.blogspot.com/ InTheCampofSaintMichael

    President Obama wants to move the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See to the American Embassy in Italy even though those are two seperate states. There is an open communist aggression led by this President and followed by people like the NY Mayor Deblassio who dosen’t want any Catholics representing on his religious advisory board. We all know the hostility the Communist have for The Church. It is embarrasing to see them get so far as the White House. The Democratic party is just a shell for the Communist.

      Nothing says insanity quite like a devout muslime!

    So basically the 12th Imam is going to sacrifice the main populations of people on earth who follow his religion, in order to re appear. The biblical account of this coming conflagration shows pretty much everyone in the middle east with the exception of Israel being destroyed, with another much larger but almost identical conflict taking place about 7 years later. The oceans die during this time period or at least 1/3 of them, so it must be very close at hand.

      starting with the psalms 38 war against the bordering muslim states within a year or so

    What about the Talmudic/Pharisaic Jewish supremacists wreaking havoc on the world? Mossad false flags, central banking rapine, Jewish sicko media/Hollywood/porn producers, war on anything Christian, Zio-Communism which is responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths by democide, Palestinian genocide, rabbis running around saying the only reason Gentiles exist is to serve Jews. Everyone talks trash on Iran because the Jewish supremacists tell them to. Or they actually believe the bullshit. Jewish supremacist mobsters and their Christian Zionist stooges along with the Sunni Wahabbi assholes are way more dangerous to the planet than Iran. World government isn’t Iran’s idea, now is it?

    I guess everybody is gearing up to welcome the stupid Antichrist under different names

    G-d is using BHO for the acceleration of the end time scenario. What a fantastic time we live in. Incredible.

      Indeed, BHO is a mussslim himself.

    Have you ever considered that the Rothschilds are trying to pass Obama off as the Mahdi? Some Islamic prophecies suggest that the Mahdi was born in 869 a.d. after which he was ‘magically’ hidden until it is time for him to reappear and save Islam. I suspect that the reason that the Rothschilds are spending so much time and money trying to hide and distort Obama’s records is because they intend to have Obama play the part of the Mahdi.

    Other Islamic prophecies suggest that the Muslim version of Christ, Isa, will return to walk alongside the Mahdi. I suspect that Pope Francis will be assassinated to make it look like the Vision of Fatima has been fulfilled. That will enable the Rothschilds to present David de Rothschild, pictured at the link below, to play the part of Christ/Isa/Horus reincarnated who has returned to walk alongside the Mahdi/antichrist.

    The Mahdi, with the help of the Rothschilds, will likely consolidate various unions into the New World Order. The Mahdi may, at least initially, be a political leader for the NWO while David de Rothschild can play the part of a Christ impersonator who will lead the One World Religion of Universalism.

    Amazing fact, the twelfth imammmm is the islammmic messiah, but line for line and attribute for attribute he is the antichrist of the bible. Indeed these are the most amazing time to be living in.

    I remember when I was first told in the end times those who believe in Christ would be beheaded. Seems to be happening a lot in Syria. Now the 12th Iman? We know Iran would love to destroy Israel and every Jew in it. However, are they willing to bring on their own annihilation to do it? After watching some of the actions by Islamic fundamentalists, i don’t think there is much doubt about it. The question is “When is Israel going to Nuke Tehran?”
