N.Korean technicians in Tehran

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on December 8, 2010

A former Iranian diplomat who defected to the West said on Tuesday he had regularly seen North Korean technicians at Tehran airport between 2002 and 2007.

Western intelligence agencies suspect North Korea may be helping Iran to develop long-range ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons technology. Tehran insists it simply wants to develop civilian nuclear power.

Mohammed Reza Heydari, Iran’s former consul general in Norway, defected amid protests in his homeland over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed re-election. Norway granted him asylum in February.

On Tuesday he told reporters at a meeting organized by the Paris-based think-tank the Centre of Political and Foreign Affairs that he had seen North Koreans when he had been a foreign ministry official at Tehran airport.

“I saw them with my own eyes,” he said. “They were treated in a very discreet manner, in order to pass through without being seen.”

Heydari said he was “100 percent certain” that these contacts continue and alleged he had spoken to members of Iran’s hardline Revolutionary Guards Corps who confirmed that Iran plans to build a bomb.

“I was able to confirm that Iran has two goals — to develop the range of its ground-to-ground missiles and to obtain a nuclear weapon with the help of North Korea,” he said.

According to the defector, while Larijani’s group wants to govern Iran, Ahmadinejad’s supporters have a more “global agenda” and are awaiting the return of the “hidden imam”.

Some Shiite Muslims believe that the 12th Imam, known as the Mahdi, who disappeared in the year 874, will return to bring justice to the world.

Heydari said Ahmadinejad’s faction is pushing Iran’s nuclear agenda. “According to our information, this inner circle believes that with only two bombs they can ensure the survival of the country and of Islam,” he said.

Glenn Beck and Joel Rosenberg discuss Iran and the 12th Imam. The 12th Imam (Mahdi) being the Islamic messiah and the belief that he will not come until earth until after death and destruction on the earth. The leadership of Iran is trying to bring about the return of the 12th Imam by initiating wars.

Ahmadinejad’s denials and Imam Mahdi

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 5, 2010

Ahmadinejad, in an address to the people of the northeastern province of Golestan, said that during a trip he made last month to the United States, people there “were insisting that the sanctions have affected us.”

“And I, on your behalf, insisted and told them ‘The sanctions have had no effect, and whatever the heck you want to do in the next two years, do it now so we see what you are capable of’,” he said in the speech broadcast live on state television.

Ahmadinejad and other Iranian officials repeatedly dismiss the effects of sanctions imposed on Tehran for pursuing its atomic programme.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is an active member Hojjatieh Society which his guru, Janati leads. The president introduced to the society through the influence of Ayatollah Yazdi who was his mentor.

Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is reported to be the highest ranking member of the Hojjatieh. He denies this and has said that if anyone finds a connection between him and Hojjatieh, he will denounce everything he stands for.

According to an Iranian expatriate known as Azarmehr, these Hojjatieh holding the control of power in Iran “believe he (Imam Mahdi) will reappear again when the world has become full of oppression and tyranny.” Azarhehr goes on to say that the “Hojjatieh… actually believe in the spread of tyranny and oppression” as a means to hasten to the return of the Imam Mahdi. “If you stand in the way of tyranny and oppression then you delay the coming of the Lord of All Ages.” This taken in consideration with the overall context of statements from the Iranian government regarding the existence of Israel, and holocaust denial (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) and the 9/11 denial recently.

President Ahmadinejad announced that the West is trying to turn the September 11 attacks into another Holocaust so that nobody is dared to question the issues surrounding it.

Unbreakable associates

The two have a long history together. According to opposition sources, they first met in 1982, when a young Ahmadinejad was governor of the city of Khoy in West Azerbaijan Province. Around the same time, Mashai was appointed part of the team responsible for the security of the neighboring Kurdistan region by Iran’s Intelligence Ministry.

The two became good friends, and when Ahmadinejad was appointed governor in Ardebil Province, he made Mashai a part of his team, along with Sadegh Mahsooli (currently Minister of Welfare and Social Security) and Mojtaba Samare Hashemi (a senior adviser). Today, they are known as members of Ahmadinejad’s ‘Ardebil circle.’  Both are also believed to be followers of Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi and his messianic teachings.

Mashai, whose daughter is married to Ahmadinejad’s son, is a controversial figure that last year was rapped by hardliners and Khamenei for saying Iran is a “friend of the Israeli people.”

The Islamic republic has repeatedly vowed never to recognize Israel, which was an ally of pro-US shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, ousted by the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Esfandiar Rahim-Mashai claimed publicly that he had been told by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, “You are being attacked because of me. They cannot attack me so they have a go at you.”

Ahmadinejad hasn’t openly declared that he wants Mashai to replace him. But there’s plenty of tantalizing circumstantial evidence to suggest he does, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed in Iran.

“According to Islamic Republic News Agency reports, Ahmadinejad has described Mashai as a ‘pious man who is a devotee of Imam Mahdi,’ a Shiite saint whose return is awaited by believers. Recently Mashai said that he is in contact with Imam Mahdi directly.

The claim that this crisis passed because the “Green” opposition to Ahmadinejad’s election has disappeared or been muted always missed the wider point. Even if Government repression could take people off the streets and break up their communications, many within the Iranian establishment were not satisfied that the President had established authority. Indeed, many see him as counter-productive, sapping any strength that the Iranian system can claim.

Ahmadinejad: “We are ready for the end of days”

A message to the people of the World from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
“We are ready for the end of days (Armageddon) and We pray that this day comes sooner”.

Armageddon and Mahdi

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on August 16, 2010

Ahmadinejad has made it clear he is to play a special role in the Mahdi’s return by preparing the world for the event. This became obvious when he served as mayor of Tehran prior to being elected president in 2005. As mayor, he ordered the widening of some city streets to prepare for the Mahdi’s parade. He committed millions of dollars in funding to expand a mosque outside the holy city of Qom where it is believed the Mahdi will make his re-appearance.

As president, Ahmadinejad has gone as far as to suggest he is a messenger of Mohammad. He has confided in some Arab leaders the Mahdi will return before his term ends. Prior to delivering his first speech at the United Nations in 2006, he could be heard praying to the Mahdi. Following his UN appearance, he told Iranian religious leaders he saw himself engulfed in a “halo” as he spoke–a sign of his spiritual alignment with the Mahdi (although the halo apparently was visible only to the Iranian president).

It is believed the Mahdi’s return will be ushered in during a three year period of world chaos. Most believe this chaos must evolve naturally. However, Khamenei and Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on whose behalf Khamenei helped steal the 2009 election, believe otherwise. They believe man can serve as a catalyst in creating the world chaos to trigger events to bring about the Mahdi’s return.

As the Quran states the Mahdi will not return in an odd-numbered year, as world chaos is to precipitate his reappearance, as Ahmadinejad claims the Mahdi’s return will occur before his presidency ends in 2013, as a dying Khamenei claims the return will happen before his death, and as Iran stands on the brink of arming itself with nuclear weapons, Khamenei and Ahmadinejad view the planets as all falling into alignment for them.

A typical modernist in his views on the Mahdi, Abul Ala Maududi (1903-1979), the Pakistani Islamic revivalist, stated that the Mahdi will be a modern Islamic reformer/statesman, who will unite the Ummah and revolutionize the world according to the ideology of Islam, but will never claim to be the Mahdi, instead receiving posthumous recognition as such.

A bad word whispered will echo a hundred miles

The 12th, Muhammad al-Mahdi, is believed by these Shiites to have been born in present-day Iraq in 869 and never to have died, only gone into hiding. Twelvers, not other Shiites or Sunni Muslims 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.

The apocalyptic catch? The Mahdi is expected to appear when the world is wracked in utter chaos and war. Many Sunnis also believe that the Mahdi will come in such a judgment-day scenario, but believe that he has not been born yet.

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. Ahmadinejad has even called for the reappearance of the 12th Imam from the podium of the United Nations General Assembly. 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.

Imagine for a moment, if you would, that each year the American president, vice president, Congress and the Senate gathered together to strategize with Christian leaders to discuss how to “introduce Jesus Christ to the world and pave the way for his return.” As surreal as this may sound, this is in effect what happens each year in Iran.

Later the Iranian President, in a press statement during a tour in Iranian cities, said that “the reason the American military attacks certain countries in the region, is that a man will appear in this region that will crush all evil-doers.

The Iranian leader is quoted as saying, “The United States believes that the Mahdi will appear in the Middle East and drain all sources of oppression in the world,” adding, “they are increasingly aware that the Iranian nation will prepare the way for his appearance and rule.”

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s broadcasting website said that the Mahdi will form an army to defeat the enemies of Islam in a series of apocalyptic battles, in which the Mahdi will overcome his archvillain in Jerusalem.

All Iran is buzzing about the Mahdi, the 12th imam, and the role Iran and Ahmadinejad are playing in his anticipated return. People are anxious to know when and how he will rise, and what they must do to receive this worldwide salvation,” says cleric Ali Lari, in Iran’s religious center of Qom.
