Ahmadinejad Wants the Bomb To Help Bring the Muslim Messiah
Little is said about President Ahmadinejad's background even his official biography lacks a lot of information. But by understanding who Ahmadinejad is, and where he comes from, we can see how dangerous this man really is. In the book, "The Bomb and the Koran," French journalist Michel Taubmann gives us some insight into the Iranian despot Ahmadinejad's biography.
Ahmadinejad and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei practice the Hojjatieh's interpretation of Shiism. This type of Islam has a very messianic and apocalyptic view of the world. It predicts a period of universal chaos before the return of the Mahdi (the 12th imam, also known as the hidden imam, a Muslim version of the Messiah). This version of Islam is so radical that even the leader of the revolution against the Shah, Ayatollah Khomeini banned its practice in 1983.
Through the prism his faith, Ahmadinejad sees politics as the "continuation of war by other means." Once, when asked by students to define "what's the most beautiful for a Muslim on earth," he answered very matter of fact: "To kill and be killed."
Ahmadinejad believes that he has been chosen by Allah to hasten the return of this Muslim messiah. The way to achieve this goal for the Iranian president is the occurrence of a nuclear Holocaust. And this is why it is so vital for Ahmadinejad that Iran acquires a nuclear weapon.
During his September 2005 speech at the United Nations, Ahmadinejad said that he saw all the heads of state gathered blinded by a divine light while angels were circling above his head! As reported in the Financial Times:
Taubmann' book tell us that Ahmadinejad's mother's name is Sayeed Khanom, which indicates that she is a descendant of the Prophet; but his father's pedigree is much less glorious. His name was originally Sabarian, which is most certainly Arabic (or even worse an Armenian name) either way it is an insult for most Iranians. His father whose first name was Ahmad changed his family name to Ahmadinejad, which could translate in "of the race of the prophet" since Ahmad was one of the multiple names used by the prophet.
Think about that for a second, his mother has the glorious position of a descendant of Mohammad; dad had the inglorious position of marrying way above his station. Papa must have had a tremendous inferiority complex, and I am sure that little Ahmadinejad learned from his dad's insecurity (I believe it's called prophet-envy).
In his younger adult years, Ahmadinejad trained to be a terrorist. He was involved with the taking of the US embassy and it is rumored that he suggested taking the Russian one as well.
Ahmadinejad was a close associate of Ayatollah Malahati, who was among the people that set up Iran's terrorist activities.
Malahati reportedly supervised the Oct. 23, 1983 Beirut terror attacks against the U.S. Marines and French soldiers barracks that killed 241 U.S. servicemen and 58 French paratroopers.
In his new role Ahmadinejad allegedly planned assassinations in the Middle East and Europe of opponents to the regime, such as the Kurdish leader Qasselou in July 1989 in Vienna.
In other words the guy has a real taste for blood. But it's worse than that. You have a guy who's mother descended from the prophet, a dad trying to make up for the fact that he is the Iranian version of trailer trash and what you end up with is a nut job with a Messiah complex.
Are we scared yet? This guy thinks he is supposed to bring on the "end of days" and the only way to do that is to kill millions of people. So Senator Obama, what DO you want to say to him when you meet without conditions?
