A Big Flash Like Lightening?
This whole August 22 thing is so speculative that I’ve avoided blogging on it. Who would want to climb into the mind of Ahmadinejad? Who could?
This is an update on August 22 from a phone call.
Just a reminder that Iran has said that it will give its answer to the world on its nuclear program on August 22.
[There] is now intelligence that is beyond chatter an Iranian general has told a top Iranian politician that the answer would come in a big flash like lighting. There is also intelligence to suggest that the answer will be delivered in Jerusalem.
According to my source the current intelligence puts Iran holding nukes in 3-6 months.Israel is taking steps to counter the threat.
One thing I’m utterly convinced of, though, is that Western projections of Iran’s nuclear capabilities are tinged with prejudice. If the NoKos and Pakistanis can make a bomb, why not the Iranians?
The "5 to 10 years" estimates we hear from State are hogwash; Iran is not an idiot nation. They are smart, technically proficient, advanced. If they don't already have a bomb, they soon will.
But I don’t think there will be a flash like lightening over Jerusalem tomorrow, since that would result in many, many flashes like lightening over Tehran. Remember, there are a lot of self-serving Mullahs in Tehran that have gotten very wealthy subjugating Iran. They very likely do not share Ahmadinejad's urgent desire to bring forth the 12th Imam.
For your (possible last day?!) reading pleasure, here's a bit on the 12th Imam from an Islamic Web site:
The Twelfth Holy Imam Al-Mehdi, AI-Hujjah (as) the son of the Imam Hassan Al-Askari (as) and Al-Sayyidah Nargis. He is the last of the Holy Infallible Imams of the people on earth and with him the fine of succession to The Holy Prophet (pbuh&hf) now ends.Love those little Holy parentheses. "pguh&hf?!" Oh, please! If it's an honorific, treat it with honor and spell it out! Oh, and you left out a (swt) after "Allah" in the last paragraph.
He is still, by The Will of Allah (swt), living in this world of ours, but does not appear in the public sight.
He will re-appear to all Mankind only by The Command of God (swt) towards the last days of the Human Civilization at a time when the world will become unbearablely full of injustice and imorality.
The Imam (as) will appear and will:
Crush all kinds of Oppression from any quarter
Restore God's Law and Order and make Justice once again prevail supreme.
The Holy Prophet (pbuh&hf) and the all other Eleven Imams (as) have said that the Imam AI-Mehdi (as) will live until he has full control of the whole wide world, and make Justice prevail and will do away with all kind of tyranny.
He will re-establish the Islamic Religion and make it prevail even though the Paganist and the unbelivers will all dislike and object to his cause violently.
"MAY ALLAH, PERMIT HIM TO LET HIMSELF, BE SEEN AND BE KNOWN BY US! AND TO LET US BE OF HIS HELPERS, IN HIS DIVINE AND SACRED QUEST, TO RID THIS WORLD OF ALL MISERY AND INJUSTICE!
Just a word of warning to the Tehradicals and their ilk: If the 12th Imam is going to do away with all tyranny and injustice, the entire leadership of the Muslim world better duck and cover!
