The 12th Imam prophecy should be taken into account when discussing future military budgets and current diplomatic overtures towards Iran in general and Ahmadinejad in particular. Let me explain the 12th Imam prophecy that the Shia (Iran) subscribe and the dangers that come with this belief. The Shia prophesies that there is a coming 12th Imam who is the great spiritual savior with the name Abu al-Qasim Muhammad or also called Muhammad al Mahdi. Most accounts of the story say that al Mahdi (12th Imam) went into hiding as a child around the age of five years old in the 13th Century. Ahmadinejad believes that Mahdi is hiding in a well somewhere and will supernaturally return just before the Day of Judgment.
According to Shia Islam, the criteria for the Hidden Imam are as follows: He will be a descendant of Muhammad and the son of Fatima-Will have a broad forehead and pointed nose-Will return just before the end of the world-His appearance will be preceded by a number of prophetic events during 3 years of horrendous world chaos, tyranny and oppression-Will escape from Medina to Mecca, thousands will pledge allegiance to him-Will rule over the Arabs and the world for 7 years-Will eradicate all tyranny and oppression bringing harmony and total peace-Will lead a prayer in Mecca which Jesus will be at his side.
You may be asking yourself why this prophecy is important to the United States and our national security. The importance arises from the fact that the Obama Administration blindly believes that it can negotiate with an apocalyptic leader. President Ahmadinejad and his cabinet say they have a ‘signed contract’ with al Mahdi in which they pledge themselves to his work. What does this work involve? According to their own prophecy, there must be world chaos for the Imam to return. The strides that Iran is making in regards to their nuclear ambitions will soon come to fruition and will then be able to “wipe Israel off the face of the map.” That would be the start of the chaos needed to bring about the stupid kid hiding in the well.
An apocalyptic regime will not negotiate away the very instrument (nuclear weapon) they need to bring about their prophecy. The liberals would have us think that Iran and Muslims dislike Americans because of George W. Bush and his mean policies. Radical Muslims “hate” us because we are not Muslim and it is that simple. Iran will to continue to use their terrorist proxies to attack Americans and Israelis and will most likely provide some sort of WMD to accomplish their work. Mr. Obama should not allow the Iranians to continue to stall a military response on their nuclear complex and that is exactly what Obama is doing with negotiations. Obama and Congressional Democrats are proposing the gutting of the very systems (SDI, F-22) that we will need to protect us now and in the future. The world is entering the most dangerous time in our history with a gullible neophyte at the helm.
