Return from the Well

When some guy at the street corner is preaching “The End is near!” it’s one thing, when a Government is preaching the same thing then it’s a whole ‘nother animal. We all know Ahmadinejad believes the 12th Imam is coming but I didn’t believe the Mullahs that run the show in Iran bought into the same apocalyptic vision as he did. However the state run media in Iran is preparing the Iranian public for the Imam Mahdi’s return. From Ynet News:
The Islamic Republic of Iran broadcasting (IRIB) website said in a program called 'The World Towards Illumination,' that the Mahdi will reappear in Mecca and form an army to defeat Islam's enemies in a series of apocalyptic battles, in which the Mahdi will overcome his archvillain in Jerusalem.
Remember that Ahmadinejad has sent around 40,000 military and security personnel mixed in with the 200,000 Iranians that will go to Mecca in this years Hajj. The Champion of the dispossessed himself may even attend.
Soon a pious person from the progeny of Imam Hasan Mojtaba (AS) meets with the Imam. He is a venerable God-fearing individual from Iran. Before the Imam's appearance he fights oppression and corruption and enters Iraq to lift the siege of Kufa and holy Najaf and to defeat the forces of Sofyani in Iraq.
What exactly are the Mullahs and Ahmadinejad preparing the Iranian public for?
Others say the date will be the 25th of the month of Zil-Qa’dah and may coincide with the Spring Equinox or Nowrooz as the Iranians call.
What else is going to happen during the Spring Equinox? Front Page magazine reports Ahmadinejad recently said:
“I'm very hopeful that we will be able to hold the big celebration of Iran's full nuclearization in the current year,” he said. (The Persian calendar year ends on March 20.)
March 20th is the Spring Equinox.

Hey thanks for dropping by my little blog! I was wondering if you have done any research into the Iran-Venezula connection? You seem to have a lot of resources.
