Nazi Islam

Ninety percent of Muslims in the world consider themselves Sunnis. Roughly the other ten percent consider themselves Shias. Both Sunnis and Shias have a concept of a Mahdi; however the description below is more akin to the Twelver Shias that dominate Iran (ancient Persia).

Global Watch Special Report 2011

 

THE RISE OF THE PRINCE OF PERSIA

 

Iran is a nation that figures prominently in the news these days. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America, President George Bush mentioned the nation of Iran in a speech and depicted it as being one of the notorious members of the now infamous “axis of evil” nations.

 

Still, most people in the West know very little about Iran, and the vast majority of American’s are completely unaware of the history of the US relationship with Iran, and the fact that the region of Iran actually has had a long and significant role in world affairs.

 

While Persia has had ties deeply rooted in world history, the direct American-Iranian relationship only commenced in the late 1930’s. Persia joined the allied forces against Germany in 1943, and thus the World War II Mid-east theatre provided the stage that began the rather brief history of the US-Iranian relationship.

 

Ahmadinejad-Mosque-Khamenei

 

It is a relationship that has also undergone a complete about face since the 1970’s. Within the scope of this remarkable turn in geo-political affairs in the international relationship between Iran (Persia) and the United States are a host of highly significant factors relative to the prophesied signs of the times, and imminent world events in these Last Days.

 

Today Iranian President Ahmadinejad has renewed an increasing intense hostility towards the state of Israel and has assumed the mantel piece as the voice of Islam with Iran now becoming the dominant Islamic power in the Middle East after the demise of Saddam Hussein and the previous Baathist Iraqi government.

 

EZEKIEL’S ALIGNMENT OF THE MUSLIM NATIONS

 

Ezekiel prophesises that Iran (Persia) will be one of the leading Muslim nations that will side in a major attempt to invade and destroy Israel at a time when Israel is unsuspecting.

 

Interestingly enough during this attempted invasion Ezekiel mention that Sheba and Dedan will voice a diplomatic protest to the invasion. Sheba and Dedan are historical names which refer to the Arabian peninsula and many believe that despite its conservative Islamic rule of law that the Saudi Monarchy are dependent on the West to protect their oil interests because of the fear that the tide of Iranian fundamentalism which overthrew the Iranian Shah in 1979 could provide a threat to their own well being should the masses rise up against the special relationship that the Saudi King has with the so called “Zionist West”.

 

THE COMING OF THE AL MADHI

 

According to the Shia and Sunni versions of the Islamic eschatology the Mahdi ([there is an Arabic word on PDF preceding the word ‘Mahdi’] Mahdi, also Mehdi; “Guided One”) [Sunni Mahdi perspective and Shia Mahdi perspective] is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will appear on earth before the coming of the day of Judgement (sic). The Madhi is believed to be a future muslim world leader who will not only rule over the Islamic world, but also the non Muslim world in the establishment of an Islamic order.

 

The Mahdi will be a descendant of Fatimah (one of Mohammed’s wives) and will take his name as Mohammed bin Abdullah. The hadith indicates that the Madhi will lead an Islamic alliance with black banners from Khorasan and Central Asia. Kohrasan is known in modern day language as Iran

 

According to hadith, The Mahdi will be a great military, political and spiritual leader who will unite Islam under one Caliphate and conquer many countries. He will attack and defeat Israel. The war will result in the slaughtering of the Jews and the reclaiming of Jerusalem as the capital of Islam and the location of the Madhi’s earthly rule of Sharia law. Their flags will be erected on the Temple Mount when they reach the Dome of the Rock.

 

In August 2009 Iran held a multi-day conference, bringing together politicians, mullahs, students – Shiite and Sunni alike – to plot what can be done on this earthly plane to hasten the coming of the anointed one, a messianic, end times personage known as the Mahdi.

 

For the past five years, the Iranian religious and political leaders have annually gathered together for two days in the city of Qom for what is called ‘The International Conference of Mahdism Doctrine,’ sponsored by the Bright Future Institute. The purpose of the Bright Future Institute is ‘to introduce Imam Mahdi to the world’ and ‘to pave the ground for his reappearance’ and ‘help bring all of humanity to the knowledge of the true savior of mankind, Imam al-Mahdi.’

 

From the establishment of the Islamic Regime in 1979 to Ahmadinejad’s rise to power in August 2005, Mahdism had been a religious doctrine and a tradition that had no political manifestation. The political system operated independently of this messianic belief and of the anticipation of the return of the Mahdi. It was only with Ahmadinejad’s presidency that this religious doctrine has become a political philosophy and taken a central place in politics.

Beware the Ikhwan


Muslim Brotherhood

There are many comparisons to the occurrences in Egypt to the President Carter support of the Iranian Revolution in the name of Democratic self-determination and anti-despotism. The now deceased Shah of Iran (Reza Pahlavi) was a despot; however from a Western perspective his only actual intolerance was toward those who were against his rule and the Westernization of Iran. Unfortunately the Shah’s intolerance was particularly brutal and it did include a secret police organization known as Savak. Undoubtedly Savak carried out numerous suspensions of civil and human rights in the name of keeping the Shah in power. The mere existence of a Savak police State did not make Iranians happy with their ruler. So when rioting began against the Shah probably with a little President Carter subterfuge, an Ayatollah in exile for being against the Shah would immediately become a symbol of Islamic faith and deliverance from the Shah’s intense repressive desire to remain the Monarch of Iran. The Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini return from exile triggered the reminiscence of Shia Twelver theopolitical ideology that perhaps the return of the Hidden Imam was imminent due to the chaos in Iran. Little did the Iranian people know is that Khomeini would signify a despotic repression making the Shah’s repression look like a picnic.

 

Egypt has the Sunni version of purist Islam which many call Radical or Salafist and also looks back to the days of Mohammed as the measurement of living and governing society. The Salafists may not be looking for a Hidden Imam like Shia Twelvers; however they believe the reestablishment of a Caliphate would begin again the quest to bring Islam (the Sunni kind) to the whole world. The largest Salafists in Egypt is the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) also known by its more Islamic name as Ikhwan. The MB considers themselves part of the Sunnis (90% of Islam) although some Sunnis do not consider Salafism as Sunni. Anyway, the MB End Times scenario is Sunni in which the Mahdi will become the Caliph (Khalifah) and begin the final push to Islamize the world. Check this out from a pro-Sunni website:

 

– The Mahdi (Mehdi) is not the “Messiah” of Muslims.

 

Muslims recognize Jesus Christ as Messiah and this is very clearly mentioned in the Quran.

 

– Sunni Muslims are expecting 3 main individuals to appear in the End Times: (1) at least one caliph (ruler) whose is referred to as Mahdi (good man), (2) Anti-Christ (evil man), and (3) Jesus Christ (good man).

 

– Sunni Muslims are expecting Jesus to return to Earth, by descending from Heaven.

 

– For Sunni Muslims, the Mahdi (Mehdi) is a unique Muslim leader who will appear in the End Times and act as a Caliph, ruling the Muslim World. He is not a prophet. According to our numerical analysis of the Quran, it seems that the Mahdi will be fulfilling a divine mission and will act as a Warner and Carrier of Good News.

 

– Most probably, shortly after Jesus descends from Heaven, the Mahdi will die and Jesus will become the Caliph of Muslims.

 

– For Sunni Muslims, Jesus will play a very important role. Jesus will kill the Anti-Christ and rule the World after the Mahdi dies and Jesus’ reign will be longer.

 

– For the Shia, the Mahdi’s role is far more important than Jesus’ role. The Shia believe that the Mahdi (not Jesus) will be the one who will kill the Anti-Christ. Shia even claim that the Mahdi will kill Satan. (Sunni Muslims’ Al-Mahdi (Mehdi))

 

The Muslim Brotherhood tweaks this by adding the concept that the Ummah (Muslim Community) can rise to the occasion to reestablish the Caliphate.

 

Prophet Mohammad … has accurately prophesied the governing methods that came to be followed after him and has prophesied that the proper Caliphate system will be applied again around the end of time. The Mahdi (Mehdi) is expected to rule as a proper Caliph. (Ibid. Section 2)

 

Big Peace participated in a series investigating the affect of Sharia Law in America in which an article entitled, “The Genesis of the Muslim Brotherhood,” posts an English translation of the MB statement for its reason to exist:

 

The Muslim Brotherhood’s bylaws make clear the organization’s objectives and how it intends to achieve them:

 

“The Muslim Brotherhood is an International Muslim body which seeks to establish Allah’s law in the land by achieving the spiritual goals of Islam and the true religion which are namely the following: . . . (F) the need to work on establishing the Islamic State; [and] (G) The sincere support for a global cooperation in accordance with the provisions of the Islamic Sharia.”

 

Chapter II, Article 3 of the MB’s bylaws states:

 

“The Muslim Brotherhood in achieving these objectives depends on the following means: . . . (D) Make every effort for the establishment of educational, social, economic, and scientific institutions and the establishment of mosques, schools, clinics, shelters, clubs, as well as the formation of committees to regulate zakat affairs and alms; (E) The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing the Islamic state.”

 

The MB’s propaganda machine has convinced the West that its drive for the Caliphate is a peaceful exercise; however the Salafist organization’s own by-laws state peaceful means is only one path. When it comes to the point in which MB views tyranny (i.e. Islamic despots like Mubarak) and the enemies of Allah (i.e. Jews, Israel, Christian America or anyone espousing Western values) are resisting the Caliphate, then it is time to fight. And by “fighting” it is not meant to fight with the might of the pen, rather the fight is the might of the sword.

 

The MB has become the Sultan of Stealth Jihad. They promise non-violence but praise the actions of Islamic terrorists like Hamas, al Qaeda and homicidal suicide bombers who act for Mohammed, Allah and the good of the Ummah. The Stealth Jihad of the MB is to matriculate into a hated system to gain power and then secure power with violence. It is the example of Mohammed himself who fled from Mecca to Medina and slowly acquired power among the tribal Medina ruling elites. Once the power existed to challenge Mohammed’s rivals they were forced into allegiance or exterminated. The Jewish Medinans which were many experienced extermination and banishment in the cause of Allah.

 

Banna [al Banna the founder of MB] was a practical revolutionary. On the one hand, he instructed his votaries to prepare for violence. They had to understand that, in the end — when the time was right, when the Brotherhood was finally strong enough that violent attacks would more likely achieve Ikhwan objectives than provoke crippling blowback — violence would surely be necessary to complete the revolution (meaning, to institute sharia, Islam’s legal-political framework). Meanwhile, on the other hand, he taught that the Brothers should take whatever they could get from the regime, the political system, the legal system, and the culture. He shrewdly realized that, if the Brothers did not overplay their hand, if they duped the media, the intelligentsia, and the public into seeing them as fighters for social justice, these institutions would be apt to make substantial concessions. Appeasement, he knew, is often a society’s first response to a threat it does not wish to believe is existential. {Fear the Muslim Brotherhood; Andrew C. McCarthy; 1/31/11)

 

And read this:

 

Occasionally, the Brotherhood condemns terrorist attacks, but not because it regards terrorist violence as wrong per se. Instead, attacks are criticized either as situationally condemnable (al-Qaeda’s 1998 embassy bombings, though directed at American interests, killed many Muslims and were not supported by an authoritative fatwa), or as counterproductive (the 9/11 attacks provoked a backlash that resulted in the invasion and occupation of Muslim countries, the killing of many Muslims, and severe setbacks to the cause of spreading Islam). Yet, on other occasions, particularly in the Arab press, the Ikhwan embraces violence — fueling Hamas and endorsing the murder of Americans in Iraq.

 

In addition, the Brotherhood even continues to lionize Osama bin Laden. In 2008, for example, “Supreme Guide” Muhammad Mahdi Akef lauded al-Qaeda’s emir, saying that bin Laden is not a terrorist at all but a “mujahid,” a term of honor for a jihad warrior. The Supreme Guide had “no doubt” about bin Laden’s “sincerity in resisting the occupation,” a point on which he proclaimed bin Laden “close to Allah on high.” Yes, Akef said, the Brotherhood opposed the killing of “civilians” — and note that, in Brotherhood ideology, one who assists “occupiers” or is deemed to oppose Islam is not a civilian. But Akef affirmed the Brotherhood’s support for al-Qaeda’s “activities against the occupiers.” (Ibid.)

 

The MB gaining control of Egypt will be like Hitler gaining control of Germany or like Khomeini getting control of Iran. Friends this is not good for Western Liberty, Israel as a haven for Jews who cannot trust Gentile governments and especially not good for Exceptionalist America.

 

Now check this out: President Barack Hussein Obama made sure there was a MB presence at his blame America speech in Cairo in 2009. Keep in mind BHO is not special even though he is suspicious, because the U.S. government via the State Department and Presidential Administration involvement have cultivated an on-again and off-again relationship with the MB and other Salafist groups for years depending on the National Interests perceived for a short term gain. It seems the long term/big picture outlook has been a failure of American government for years.

 

The Obama administration has courted Egyptian Islamists from the start. It invited the Muslim Brotherhood to the president’s 2009 Cairo speech, even though the organization is officially banned in Egypt. It has rolled out the red carpet to the Brotherhood’s Islamist infrastructure in the U.S. — CAIR, the Muslim American Society, the Islamic Society of North America, the Ground Zero mosque activists — even though many of them have a documented history of Hamas support. To be sure, the current administration has not been singular in this regard. The courting of Ikhwan-allied Islamists has been a bipartisan project since the early 1990s, and elements of the intelligence community and the State Department have long agitated for a license to cultivate the Brotherhood overtly. They think what Anwar Sadat thought: Hey, we can work with these guys. (Ibid.)

 

This short sightedness seems to be a particular political weakness of President Barack Hussein Obama who has had relationships with people in America that have close associations with the MB or are big time apologists for MB goals. BHO is either a Chamberlain-like idiot or he is in collusion with MB goals for the self-interest of destroying Western culture to bring about Marxist transformation he called “Change” in his 2008 campaign promises.

America Might have to use a Little Tweaked MAD on Iran


Nuclear End Times

 

John R. Houk

© January 31, 2011

 

Dina Esfandiary and Harry White are geopolitical experts that focus on security issues such as nuclear proliferation. Esfandiary and White have tagged an article that has appeared in the Australian about their belief that a nuclear armed Iran is inevitable. Their conclusion is based on covert and overt activities have only served to slow down Iran’s nuclear aspirations rather than prevent them.

 

Their solution to a nuclear armed Iran then is not prevention, it is in deterrence. It seems the word “deterrence” is code for the old Cold War strategy between the old USSR and America of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). In no place in the article is there is specific to MAD strategy; however check this sentence out:

 

The most obvious answer is deterrence, and probably nuclear deterrence. It will have to be clear to Iran that the consequences of using of nuclear weapons will far outweigh the benefits. Security provided by deterrence is more frightening than security provided by accord, but …”

 

That sounds like MAD strategy to me, how about you?

 

The thing is the threat of MAD strategy with Iran will have to be tweaked if it has any chance of working. The Mullahs of Iran subscribe to a radical theopolitical ideology that proclaims the Twelfth Imam (i.e. the Mahdi) will return soon to begin a global conquest to bring Islam to the world. Politics and theology merge for Iranian Twelver Shi’ites that will bring little fear of reprisal from a nuclear armed kafir nation such as the USA or Israel. Indeed Twelvers believe that the hidden Twelfth Imam needs a little help to reveal his self to lead physical Muslim armies in global conquest. What is that help? Check it out: If a human factor causes global chaos, the Twelfth Imam will appear to set things straight.

 

The only way to tweak a MAD strategy with Iran is to actually utilize a surgical small nuclear attack to show America means business. There is no way Israel could get away with such a notion. The Western armed nuclear powers are too cowardly to sign off on such nuclear surgery. India is capable, but they have their own MAD strategy working between them and Pakistan. China would take a wait and see what happens and throw in with whoever provides the best for Chinese National Interests and Security. Russia will overtly support Iran but also will join in according to how it benefits them.

 

Let’s see. What kind of chaos is happening currently in the Middle East?

 

1.     Recently a Hezbollah backed man became the Prime Minister of Lebanon after Hezbollah forced out Prime Minister Saad Hariri. New Prime Minister Najib Mikati has given public assurance he is not in the pocket of Hezbollah, Syria and Iran. If you believe that I have some mythical swamp land in Florida I can sell you for cheap.

 

2.     And why did Hezbollah topple the fragile Lebanese government of Prime Minister Hariri? It is because the U.N. has taken the shocking uncharacteristic action of naming what many believe to be Hezbollah members. There is speculation that Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran issued the order to assassinate Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and might be on the indictment. You can see the Iran to Syria to Hezbollah to Lebanon connection, right? Rafik was the father of Saad.

 

3.     Who can count how many times Syria has issued alerts in preparation for war with Israel the last couple of years. Did I mention Israel bombed a Syrian stealth nuclear reactor not too long ago?

 

4.     Hezbollah is Iran on the Mediterranean with some extreme back-up from rogue nation Syria.

 

5.     Sunni Hamas is a military recipient of the psycho-Shias of Iran and a tool of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

6.     In mentioning the Muslim Brotherhood, that Salafist Islamic organization has taken advantage of Egyptian unrest to thrust itself into a potential power vacuum the mob is causing. Indeed, there are reports that both Hamas and Hezbollah have dispatched agents into Egypt to tweak the mob. Muslim grassroots unhappiness has spread across North Africa and is now entering the Sunni Middle East as well.  

 

I am sure with a little more digging I could find some more Muslim African and Muslim Asia indicators of the kind of chaos that is having a global effect. You can’t tell me the Twelvers of Iran are not thinking of giving a Twelfth Imam nudge by pushing chaotic circumstances.
