Rant Analysis, Part 2
Posted by Godefroi on October 1, 2007
Actually, my personal observations are still on hold, pending more free time. 🙂
This will sound alarming. A literal reading of Ahmadi-Nejad’s UN address suggests that he is predicting a total war coming soon.
The key is in his invocation and his conclusion. Normal official communications by Muslims start with, “In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.” A’jad followed that formula immediately with:
“Oh God, hasten the arrival of Imam Al-Mahdi and grant him good health and victory and make us his followers and those who attend to his rightfulness.” [italics in the official Iranian version]
Sounds like a pretty standard invocation, but it’s not. It is a specific call for the Shiite Messiah, who will bring a final holy war, the final jihad, which in the Khomeini cult implies all-out war with the infidels to bring about the Millenarian Age of Paradise on Earth. (For Khomeini, the term “infidels” includes Sunni Muslims, who do not recognize the Mahdi). That is why Khomeini started the nuclear program twenty years ago, and why it has been pushed consistently by all the major cult leaders. [A note here: this is a similar wish for us Christians; that the Messiah will return in power to claim his own and put an end to evil in the world. The important difference here is that we aren’t fomenting nuclear war in hopes of making this happen…our weapon is prayer – GdB]
A’jad put the message explicitly in his peroration, i.e., his summary and conclusion.
“I officially declare that the age of relations arising from the Second World War as well as materialistic thought based on arrogance and domination is now over.” (italics added)
Translation: The West, and particularly the United States, emerged dominant after World War Two. Israel declared independence in 1948. The dominance of the West is now over.
A’jad’s use of the phrase “I officially declare” indicates how he views himself as Allah’s representative on earth; a very common paranoid fantasy, but one that is taught by the Khomeini cult as part of its explicit doctrine. Cult members who are otherwise quite sane can believe such things (as in the Rev. Jim Jones’ suicide cult following.)
This declaration is followed by A’jad’s messianic prediction.
“Humanity has passed a perilous precipice and the age of monotheism (i.e., Khomeini Shiism), purity, affinity, respecting others, justice and peace-loving has now commenced.” (I.e., the End of Times is at hand; italics added).
“It is the divine promise that the truth will be victorious and the earth will be inherited by the righteous.” Translation: We will win the coming war.
“The era of darkness will end, prisoners will return home, the occupied lands will be freed, Palestine and Iraq will be liberated from the domination of the occupiers, and the people of America and Europe will be free from the pressures exerted by the Zionists.” (That’s clear enough.)
“Without any doubt, the Promised One who is the ultimate Savior will come. … This is the promise of God, and therefore it will be fulfilled.”
The “Promised One” refers to the messiah, the “occluded Mahdi,” who disappeared in the 9th century as a five year old child, and whose return Khomeinists are imminently expecting. This passage is notably blasphemous to the Sunni wing of radical Islam, [a fact that escaped me when I wrote about this – GdB] which admits of no equals to Allah and his Prophet Mohammed. A’jad is saying that the Mahdi will indeed transcend Mohammed, who did not bring about Paradise on Earth.
But the Mahdi will not come without actions of the believers.
“Let’s play a part in the fulfillment of all this glory and beauty.”
“I wish for a bright future for all human beings and the dawn of liberation and freedom for all humans … A wish which I expect will be fulfilled in the near future.” (Italics added)
Don’t forget that A’jad already fulfilled his Islamic obligation to send an ultimatum to the leaders of the infidel nations to convert to Islam or die. He sent personal letters to President Bush and German Chancellor Merkel saying exactly that. In his version of Islamic law, he has fulfilled the requirements for starting his holy war against the West.
Or, to put it in his typical threat language, he has said,
“If you would like to have good relations with the Iranian nation in the future… bow down before the greatness of the Iranian nation and surrender. If you don’t accept [to do this], the Iranian nation will… force you to surrender and bow down.”
Please read it all.
