”And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron; forasmuch
as iron breaketh in pieces and beateth down all things; and as iron that
crusheth all these, shall it break in pieces and crush.
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' CLAY,
and part of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom;..” (Daniel 2:40-41).
The lands of the Roman Empire came to be dominated by Edom and Ishmael,
represented by Christianity and I -SLAM. Both – one as strong as iron, the
other as weak as POTTERY, comprise the latter day, "Fourth Kingdom"
Esther 3:8-9 "And Haman said to King Ahasuerus, "There is a certain people scattered and separate among the peoples throughout all the provinces of your kingdom, and their laws differ from [those of] every people, and they do not keep the king's laws; it is [therefore] of no use for the king to let them be. If it pleases the king, let it be written to destroy them,.."
Throughout the centuries many Jewish Torah Scrolls and Holy Books have been burned, as part of an agenda of persecution against the Jewish people and Judaism. Tomas de Torquemada, leader of the Spanish Inquisition, demanded burning of all non-Catholic books, focusing especially on the Koran and the Jewish Talmud. Hitler and Stalin both ordered the burning of all Judaica texts and or books related to Jews or Judaism, as an attempt to wipe out the Jewish people and their faith. See
The Belzer Rebbe zy'a said that even from the wicked (rasha) we must learn. He advises that we observe the manner in which they plan their evil acts, and the untiring way they go about doing it. This, says the Rebbe, is what the stanza here means: Me’oiyvai Techakmeini... “From my enemies shall You teach me wisdom in doing Your commandments” (Psalm 119:98).
Did you know that Ahmadinejad and others in the Iranian regime appear to believe that instituting conflict and warfare—and possibly an apocalyptic scenario—will bring about the return of a messianic end-of-days figure called the hidden imam?
Khamenei Preparing Iranians for Armageddon:
“Shiite theology holds that great wars must engulf the Earth, during which one-third of the world’s population will die in the fighting and another third from hunger, lawlessness and havoc. Israel is to be destroyed, and only then will the 12th imam, Mahdi, reappear...” (RadicalIslam.org, Jul 11, 2012).
However, in direct contradiction to Shiite and Islamic theology, the Hebrew Bible predicts that Israel will triumph! The prophet Zechariah 13:8-9 says: "And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say: 'It is My people', and they shall say: 'The LORD is my God.'
According to Metzudas David, the "land" refers to the whole world, and the "two parts" refer to all the other nations, who are included under Edom (the Christian West) and Ishmael (adherents of the religion of Islam), while the "third" that will be left refers to Israel. However Rashi interprets the "third" that will be left as those members of the other nations who will convert. See also Isaiah 2:2-5, Ch. 4, 24:1-6, 41:8-16, 56:1-8, Michah 4, Zechariah 14:16, Jeremiah 30:7-11, Daniel 12:1.
In the words of Rabbi Tovia Singer: "Therefore, if you belong to a religion which comprise more than a third of the population of the world,
CHECK YOUR THEOLOGY
, the Jews are a minority" (See Deut. 7:6-8, 14:2, Numbers 23:9, 24:5-20).
The only consolation in all of this, seems to be like God's instruction to Ezekiel in verse 5:3: "You shall also take from these a small number and bind them in the corners of your garment." - "These are the few people who would go into exile to Babylon and live" (Rashi). Yet even some of these would be burned in the fire that was to ravage the House of Israel (5:4). See also Isaiah 66:19, Zech. 14:12, Ezekiel 39:4.
The saving of the remnant through being bound in the corners of Ezekiel's garments suggests that these were the people who "took hold of the Tzitzis" of the Tzaddik, I.E. FOLLOWED HIS ADVICE (see Likutey Moharan I, 7) and that they were saved in his merit.
Zechariah 8:20-23 prophecy how after the future redemption of Israel - from its persecutors, many nations will come to seek out God and His Torah in the Temple in Jerusalem. "And ten men from all the languages of the nations shall take hold and seize the corner of the garment of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
During his speeches within Iran, Ahmadinejad has said that the main mission of the Islamic Revolution is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam.The Mahdi is expected to appear when the world is wracked in utter chaos and war.
The Twelver beliefs have raised concern in conjunction with Iran's steeped interest in furiously pressing forward with its nuclear program, combined with threats against Israel and the West.
Critics of the Islamic Republic allege that Ahmadinejad and the supreme leader would even go so far as to hasten a nuclear showdown and cataclysmic strike -- perhaps an attack on Israel and inevitable retaliation -- to hasten the arrival of the 12th Imam. Twelvers (as Khomeini, Khamenei, Ahmadinejad) - believe that al-Mahdi will return as a messiah with Jesus to bring peace to the world and establish Islam as the ruling faith across the globe. -more-
Jesus, Mahdi both coming, says Iran's Ahmadinejad:
(WND, Dec 19, 2011).
Iran leader's U.N. finale reveals apocalyptic view:
A messianic figure, known as the "Mahdi" to Muslims, is poised to reveal himself after an apocalyptic holocaust on Earth that leaves most of the world's population dead (WND, Sept 21, 2006).
In Islam one is taught that Jesus
second coming is in Islamic prophecy. They say that Jesus pure hands will
murder the false Jewish Moshiach. Then he will kill the "pigs," break
the cross, demolish oratories and churches and kill Christians, except those who
believe in him as a prophet and not as the Son of God.
Contrary to Mohammed's
prophecy, the Christian Bible prepares its readers that the outcome of the
siege in the time of "Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7-11, Daniel 12:1) will not be the total
annihilation of the Jews but that Christ himself will descend on the Mount of
Olives for judgment as He fights the enemies of Israel! (Zech. 14:3-4).
But what does the Jewish
source document say: Zechariah 14:3 “Hashem will go out and wage war with those
nations as He waged war on the day of battle.”
Exodus 14:30-31 “On that
day, Hashem saved Israel from the hand of Egypt. And Israel saw the Egyptians
dead on the seashore. Israel saw the great hand that Hashem inflicted upon
Egypt, and the people revered Hashem, and they had faith in Hashem and in
Moses, His servant.”
Exodus 14:24-25 "It came about in
the morning watch that the Lord looked down over the Egyptian camp through a
pillar of fire and cloud, and He threw the Egyptian camp into confusion."
The Hebrew word used here is an expression of confusion, He confused them, He
took away their intelligence, wisdom.
"And He took off their chariot
wheels, and made them to drive heavily, so that the Egyptians said: ''Let us
flee from the face of Israel, for the LORD fighteth for them against the
Wherever it says (confusion), it means a
tumultuous noise. As in 1 Sam. 7:10 “and the Lord thundered with a loud noise,
etc., on the Philistines and threw them into confusion." (See also Exodus
23:27, Deut. 7:23, 1 Samuel 19:14-21).
As it is said: "Surely there shall
be a great noise (RA'ASH shaking) on that day in the land of Israel." A
literal earthquake, as prophesied in Zechariah 14:4-5). "And it will come
to pass on that day that there will be great consternation, sent by the Lord
upon them" I.e., to confuse their wisdom, to bring them about to madness.
"each one shall seize the hand of the other, and his hand shall rise up
against the hand of the other" (Zech. 14:13).
God will judge them with ”great hailstones = TRUTH” – among others, and in this
way He will make Himself ”known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall
know that I am the LORD" (Ezekiel 38:17-23).
14:4 ”And on that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives, which is
before Jerusalem from the east...” Alluding to the return of His glory,
Presence, Shechinah (Ezekiel 11:23, 43:2).
Al Mahdi And the End Of Time
: 'Izzat and Arif quote Ka'b al Ahbar as saying: I find the Mahdi recorded in the books of the Prophets… For instance, the Book of Revelation (6:2) says: “And I saw and behold a white horse. He that sat on him…went forth conquering and to conquer.”
The two well known Egyptian authors, Muhammad Ibn ‘Izzat and Muhammad ‘Arif then go on to say: It is clear that this man is the Mahdi who will ride the white horse and judge by the Qur’an (with justice) and with whom will be men with marks of prostration on their foreheads [Marks on their foreheads from bowing in prayer with their head to the ground five times daily].
But, there seems to be a fatal Islamic "misunderstanding" here, because the rider on the white horse in none other than Jesus Of Nazareth:
"Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself (666 ?, Revelation 13:16-18, 14:1, 7:4)...and His name is called The Word of God.
And the armies in heaven (the Christians), clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" (Book of Revelation 19:11-16).
Moreover, it seems to be that Jesus himself is the
"false Jewish messiah
," the so-called Antichrist in Xtianity or Dajjal in Islam; "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJ). Remember? "He (Jesus) had a name written that no one knew except Himself" (Rev. 19:12 NKJ)
"Then I looked, and there was the Lamb (beast?) standing on Mount Tziyon and with him were 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads"
(Rev. 14:1, 7:4 CJB).
"So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and a foul and painful sore came on those who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped its image" (Rev. 16:2).
"And the beast (Lamb) was captured, and with it the false prophet (Muhammed) who had performed in its presence the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast (Muslims) and those (Xtians) who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur" (Rev. 19:20, 20:7-10).
Revelation 7:4 "And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:.." In this number are included all the Jews who converted to Christianity...added to it; a great number of gentiles (v 9).

"It is not enough for them to have a weak, powerless state in a very small piece of Palestine. They should unite to establish a state but the ultimate goal is the liberation of the whole of Palestine," he said. "I urge the Palestinians never to forget this ideal. Forgetting this ideal is equal to committing suicide. It would be giving an opportunity to an enemy which is on the verge of collapse and disappearance." (INN, 8/26/2011).

Iran's End Times Documentary
Iran Leaders: The Comin is Upon Us - Israel Shall be Destroyed!
uses current events to argue that “the final chapter has begun” and the Mahdi’s arrival is imminent.
The Iranian government has produced a bone-chilling documentary that claims that Ayatollah Khamenei, President Ahmadinejad, and Hassan Nasrallah are talked about in Islamic prophecy as leaders who will wage war to bring about the arrival of the Hidden Imam, which the film says is “very close” to happening (Radical Islam.org).
Quote from the documentary: ”Greetings to all those... awaiting the rising of the sun.”
The Kingdom of the House of David is also likened to the sun (Psalm 89:37-38): "His seed will be forever and his throne is like the sun before Me. Like the moon, which is established forever, and it is a witness in the sky, eternally true." The moon and the sun are witnesses to him that as long as they exist, his kingdom will exist, as it is written, Jeremiah 33:20-22."
"For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts. And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name. Then will you go forth and be fat as fatted calves. And you shall crush the wicked, for they will be as ash under the soles of your feet on the day that I will prepare, says the Lord of Hosts" (Malachi 3:19-21).
Isaiah 26:5-6: "For He humbled the inhabitants of the high places, the fortified city (the Vatican, Rome); He brings it low, he brings it low even to the earth, he makes it reach even to the dust. A foot shall trample it (The Moshiach, who is referred to as a poor man riding on a donkey (the Tribes) (Zechariah 9:9, Genesis 49:8-12), the feet of a poor man, the soles of the impoverished" (that is Israel).
"With the feet, they shall be trampled, the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim" (Isaiah 28:3). These are those of Israel who are "captives of the mighty (Edom, Rome, Christianity) and "prey of the terrible" (Ishmael, Islam). Isaiah 49:24-26, Jeremiah 31:10, Genesis 25:23. See 'The Sun'
'The Imposter,' the Islamic Antichrist, who will 'confront God's faith:’ spoken of in the "bone chilling documentary."
The Christian term "Antichrist" or the "Dajjal" in Islamic term, is often applied to prophecies regarding a "little horn" in Daniel 7:24-25. They also interpret Daniel 9:27 as referring to the Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:3-12) who will rule and reign for seven years during the Tribulation (Matthew 24:21).
And some considers Daniel 11:36-37 that speaks of a self exalting king to be the Antichrist. Daniel 8:23-25 speaks of a "brazen-faced king" (Titus)... "and without strength he will be broken" (through a mosquito, the weakest of creatures, which entered his nose, Tractate Gittin (56b). However, all these verses speaks on none other than Titus and the kingdom of Rome and not about a fictional Antichrist.
2 Thess. 2:3 - 4,8 is describing the "Antichrist" as the "lawless one" (which in reality it was Titus and the kingdom of Rome, Daniel 7:25, 8:25, 11:36). "He (the Antichrist who) takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God, - whom Jesus of Nazareth will destroy by his 2. coming" (2:4,8).
The scenario to this fiction is taken from Isaiah 14:14, which speaks of the cataclysmic downfall of Nebuchadnezzar and Ezekiel 28:2, which speaks of none other than Hiram, king of Tyre. See
The Threshing Floor'
"Moreover, it should be strongly emphasized that as long as the root of this deadly, cancerous tumor, Zionism, is not burned and wholly destroyed, peace and tranquillity will never prevail in the region" (Imam Khomeini).

Isaiah 37:15-24 "...Whom have you reviled and blasphemed, and upon whom have you raised [your] voice? And you have lifted your eyes on high against the Holy One of Israel.
Through your servants you have reviled the Lord, and you said, "With my many chariots I have ascended to the heights of mountains (the Temple Mount), to the end of the Lebanon (The Temple building, Beit Mikdash, which Sennacherib evidently had visions of destroying), and I will cut down its tallest cedars, its choice cypresses, and I will come to its remotest height, to its farmland forest."
Silence in the Face of Continued Temple Mount Destruction: As an Arab bulldozer continues to dig away at the current Temple Mount floor, evidence is mounting that actual walls from the Second Temple are being destroyed. The world is silent,..(INN, 09/07/07).
Psalm 74:6-10 "And now, all her ornaments together are smashed by hammer and hatchet. They set Your Sanctuary on fire; they desecrated the Abode of Your Name to the ground. Their rulers thought together in their hearts; they burned all the meeting places of God in the land. ... How long, O God, will the adversary disgrace, will the enemy blaspheme Your Name forever!" See
Michah 5:7-8 "And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples-like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, if it passes through, treads down and tears in pieces, AND NO ONE [CAN] SAVE ANYTHING. Your hand shall be raised above your oppressors, and all your enemies shall be destroyed."
Isaiah 11:9-10 "They shall neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mount, for the land shall be full of knowledge of the Lord as water covers the sea bed." See also Habakkuk 2:11-13, 1 Samuel 17:49, Daniel 2:35. "
And it shall come to pass on that day, that the root of Jesse, which stands as a banner for peoples, to him shall the nations inquire, and his peace shall be [with] honor.
Iran, adopted animosity toward Israel as a central component of its political policies. Iran perceives Israel as an enemy that must be destroyed and also as the country that took control of Islamic holy lands and is exploiting the Palestinians. Moreover, Israel is perceived as an emissary of the West, whose goal is to destroy Islam (IMFA, 2003, Iranian activities in support of the Palestinian intifada).
Quote from the Iranian documentary: “
Freemasons, the Imposter in the End of Time: Freemasons are a secret society with the final goal of a devilish governance of the world with Jerusalem as its capital. Their belief is a devilish ideology with its roots dating back to the Pharaos. In the past two centuries, this devilish organization has gained much power in this world.
Freemasons have many signs , but the two most important ones aret he shining eye and the six pointed star. Their signs have much similarity with those who worship evil...
Many important leaders, including leaders of America, Europe and certain traitor leaders of Islamic countries are members of this evil organization, both in the past century and in current times.
Some scholars believe that the formation of the country of America and especially Israel is directely connected to the activity of this group. Freemasons, with its influence through its members across the world, are trying to finally complete their evil governance of the world.”

The Shrine (p 73-74), The Show Army of Masonry” maintains a very high profile… it is necessary to be a 32nd Degree Mason before being eligible to join the Shrine.” Only the highest Freemasons may join the Shrine.
Shrine in the name of Allah: ”With the Koran on the Altar we sealed our solemn oath in the name of Allah, the God of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the God of our fathers.”
Every Shriner kneeling before the Koran takes this oath in the name of Allah and acknowledges this pagan god of vengeance as his own ’the God of our fathers’. And in the ritual he acknowledges Islam, the declared blood enemy of Christianity (and Judaism), as the true path.
Complete Oath: “In willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon the sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming Sun shall strike me with a livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the god of our fathers support me to the entire fulfillment of the same” (from the oath of obligation.

Iran calls political opponents enemies of Islam: A traditional Islamic concept about protecting the faith and its followers has become a judicial weapon for Iran's rulers: charging opponents as so-called enemies of God with the threat of possible death sentences (AP, March 9, 2010).
US, Israel will soon exit Middle East: Ahmadinejad: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that a new Middle East is being created which would be free of the United States and Israel, as he backed the Arab uprisings but warned Egyptians to be watchful of America's "friendly face."
Massive crowds of Iranians, waving flags and chanting "Death to Mubarak!" and "Death to America!" descended on Tehran's Azadi Square (Freedom Square) to listen to the hardliner who lashed out at the West and Israel in a speech marking the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution. "We will soon see a new Middle East materialising without America and the Zionist regime and there will be no room for world arrogance (the West) in it,"
In his fiery style, Ahmadinejad, showed his messianic beliefs on Friday, saying the world was witnessing a revolution managed by Imam Mehdi, the 12 Shiite imam who disappeared as a five-year-old in the 10th century and who Shiites believe would return on the judgement day.
"The final move has begun. We are in the middle of a world revolution managed by this dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of Imam in managing it," said Ahmadinejad, wearing his trademark jacket.
"Come and take away the Zionist regime which is the source of all crimes... take it away and liberate the region. Free the region and give it to the people and take this regime, which is the child of Satan (the United States), out" (France 24, 11 Feb. 2011).

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the main purpose behind the UN Security Council's (UNSC) anti-Iran resolution was to save the Israeli regime from worldwide criticisms. Addressing a large crowd of people in the central Iranian province of Chaharmahal- Bakhtiari Province, President Ahmadinejad said that the Iranian nation is vigilant and will respond to the Israeli regime. (Saving Israel, 1st aim of UN sanctions, PressTV, 16 Jun 2010). In this article, Ahmadinejad's many lies has one purpose; demonizing the Jewish state to the point that destroying Israel seems justified in the eyes of the world.
Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah Yazdi, Ahmadinejad's mentor, wrote in his book, The Islamic Revolution—Surges in Political Changes in History:
“The most advanced weapons must be produced inside our country even if our enemies don’t like it. There is no reason that they have the right to produce a special type of weapons, while other countries are deprived of it.”
He has called on Iran to produce
“special weapons” which only a few nations possess. It was a reference to the production of nuclear arms. In his call for the development of “special weapons,” Yazdi said, “Under Islamic teachings, all common tools and materialistic instruments must be employed against the enemy and prevent [the] enemy’s military superiority.”

President Ahmadinejad is like Ayatollah Yazdi
a devotee of the Mahdi. President Ahmadinejad has declared to the world that he has a “mission from Allah” to bring about the Apocalypse needed as a precondition to occasion the return of the Mahdi and Jesus.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has declared that his divine mission on earth is to set the stage for the Mahdi to return. This will fulfill the prophecies of Ayatollah Khomeini who foretold that Iran’s destiny was to destroy Israel and the United States in a final religious war. Ahmadinejad truly believes he is fated to fulfill a mission that has been foretold in Islam since the days of Prophet Mohammed. Ahmadinejad believes that the Mahdi will lead Islam in defeating all other religions, ushering a new era of Islamic justice upon the world (Mike Evans, author of the book: "Atomic Iran").
Ahmadinejad Calls to Liberate America: Ahmadinejad's statements follow the imposition of a fourth round of sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program. The Iranian president said the sanctions do not concern him. “Why must I worry, when I have a plan to change the world... [to change] the unilateral and discriminatory world order?” he asked.
Ahmadinejad stresses need for a new world order: Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calls for the creation of a new world order in dealing with the many challenges arising in the international political arena. "What we need now is a dramatic change in world political thought," ..."Western-style capitalism is falling apart, marking the end of the age of Imperialism," he added. Ahmadinejad said the new world order should be less US-centric. "Washington's many political and economic woes show that its judgment can no longer be trusted," he explained. (PressTV, Tue, 16 Jun 2009).
Ahmadinejad Reports to the Hidden Imam
: Ahmadinejad claims he has a direct line of communication with the Hidden Imam, a Messiah-like figure in Shiite Islam who is supposed to emerge at the end of time to install eternal justice. Several times a year, Ahmadinejad takes his entire cabinet to Jamkaran, a suburb of the "holy" city of Qom, to report to the Hidden Imam. In Jamkaran there is a well that is supposed to lead to the place where the Hidden Imam is in hiding. In a solemn ceremony, Ahmadinejad throws copies of his government's budget and other edicts into the well for consideration by the Hidden Imam.

Leader urges Iranians to remain vigilant: Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says arrogant powers can no longer humiliate and threaten other nations.
"The era in which imperialist powers freely threaten and humiliate nations has passed and today the Iranian nation is recognized as a powerful nation in the world," Ayatollah Khamenei said in an address on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the first Shia Imam, Ali (PBUH), on Saturday. "With God's grace, the Iranian youth will see the day that international bullying enemies no longer have the ability to bully the Iranian nation," the Leader added. Ayatollah Khamenei stressed the importance of raising public awareness for the Muslim world as the enemy is using the tools of religion and morality to counter Islam. "It is necessary to remain fully vigilant against enemy plots," the Leader added. (PressTV, Sat, 26 Jun 2010).
The new Islamic Sword - WMD is tailored to the basic attitude of the Moslem culture, with a value graded according to strenght, from weakness to dominans. A gathering symbol - with frightening perspectives. Iran is developing nukes, basically to nuke Israel as the Final Solution to the Jewish Problem. Few years ago – the former primeminister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohammed; at the top-leader conference for the worlds 57 Moslem countries – said: “That the worlds 57 Moslem countries, with their 1.3 bn peoples, now had to put away all inner differences, in which to cope with the threat from the Jews. He meant that the Moslems now had to win the Western World for themselves, by ending suicide terrorism, and to enter into a temporary peace agrement, then in its time - the Moslems under a common strategy, could triumph over the tiny minority of 12 million Jews." Well - the common strategy is now evident.

And we can only find a way if we stop to think, to assess our weaknesses and our strength, to plan, to strategise and then to counter attack... We must win their (the Western World) hearts and minds. We must win them to our side not by begging for help from them but by the honourable way that we struggle to help ourselves... Even today we have sufficient assets to deploy against our detractors. It remains for us to identify them and to work out how to make use of them to stop the carnage caused by the enemy. This is entirely possible if we stop to think, to plan, to strategise and to take the first few critical steps. Even these few steps can yield positive results.
But think. We are up against a people who think. They survived 2000 years of pogroms not by hitting back, but by thinking..."
"Today, the Zionist regime is on a definite slope to collapse, and there is no way for it to get out of the cesspool created by itself and its supporters... American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road,.." (Full text of Ahmadinejad's speech to the UN General Assembly, Haaretz, 24/09/2008). Clearly, when Ahmadinejad mentions the "oppressing" and "bullying powers" he is speaking of USA and Israel.
Ahmadinejad at July Rally in Mashhad: The Mahdi and Iran's Global Mission "The period when four or five countries considered themselves to be owners of the world is over.

AHMADINEJAD: "We must prepare ourselves to rule the world and the only way to do that is to put forth views on the basis of the Expectation of Return [the return of the Mahdi]." (Iran Focus, Jan. 5, 2006). (What Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Saying, The Israel Project).
Imam calls on Allah
to 'annihilate Jews':
"The Jews await the false Jewish messiah, while we await, with Allah's help … the Mahdi and Jesus, peace be upon him. Jesus' pure hands will murder the false Jewish messiah. Where? In the city of Lod, in Palestine..." The "false Jewish Messiah" is the so-called Antichrist in Christianity or Dajjal in Islam, who according to their corrupted scriptures (Daniel 9:24-27) and theology will rule and reign for seven years.
Iran website heralding
'Mahdi' by springtime:
The Iranian series also claims the Mahdi will reappear on Earth with Jesus: "We read in the book Tazkarat ol-Olia, 'the Mahdi will come with Jesus son of Mary accompanying him.' ... Imam Mahdi will be the leader while Prophet Jesus will act as his lieutenant in the struggle against oppression and establishment of justice in the world. Jesus had himself given the tidings of the coming of God's last messenger and will see Mohammad's ideals materialize in the time of the Mahdi."
The Mahdi’s ascendancy to power is said to be preceded by a Muslim army coming from the east who will be carrying black flags or banners of war.
Most traditions state that the time of his reign will be seven years. Rasulullah Muhammad said: "Armies carrying black flags will come from Khurasan (in Iran). No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela (Baitul Maqdas in Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags" (Tirmidhi as quoted by Mohammed Ali Ibn Zubair Ali, Signs of Qiyamah and Prof. M. Abdullah, Islam, Jesus, Mehdi, Qadiyanis and Doomsday).
The Classic Islamic View of Jews by Hagai Mazuz: In 628, Muhammad besieged the Jewish city of Khaybar. Before doing so, he sent in assassins to murder the Jewish leaders of the city. A bloody battle ensued and the Jews surrendered. The victory against the Jews in Khaybar is constantly invoked at every opportunity when discussing the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Turkish terrorists on board the flotilla headed towards Gaza shouted: "Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, Muhammad's army shall return!" - just a few months ago (Hudson Institute-New York).

Muqtada unleashes new, improved army: The Mahdi Army , which led an uprising against the Americans in April-June 2004, has been frozen for two years after having been implicated in sectarian civil war in 2006-2007.
Iranian backed Al-Mahdi Army / Active Religious Seminary / Al-Sadr's Group (2007):
For nearly two millennia the church has insisted that the Hebrew word alma can only mean “virgin.” The church must hold this position because Matthew 1:22-23 translates alma in Isaiah 7:14 as “virgin.” The first Gospel quotes this well-known verse to provide the only “Old Testament” proof text for the supposed virgin birth of Jesus.
The stakes are high for Christendom & Islam, because if the Hebrew word alma does not mean virgin, Matthew is misquoting the prophet Isaiah, and both a key tenet of Christianity & Islam and the credibility of the first Gospel and Islam collapses.
Does the Hebrew Word Alma Really Mean "Virgin"?
Isaiah 59:20 "And a redeemer shall come to Zion, and to those who repent of transgression in Jacob, says the Lord."
Mashiach is a Jewish concept and will entail return to Torah law, firmly ruling out any “other” messianic belief.
What is the Jewish Belief About Moshiach?
Messianic age means that the world will become in a state of perfection. And everybodys role will be in its place. The Jews will be “.. a Kingdom of Priests and a holy nation for Me.” Ex. 19:6, Isaiah 61:6-9). The world is filled with religions, in which all of them have a basic knowledge of God, and that there are commandments and rules, but that their annointed/messiah in a way, has loosened them from keeping them. Jesus is messiah both in Christendom and Islam, indeed with a different role. In the moment the Moshiach comes, and he is not Jesus – then all the gentiles, will immediately understand, that is was not Christendom or Islam, but Judaism – and the gentiles will immediately grab the shirt of a Jew – to get “Knowledge of God” and how to serve Him.
