Iranian military leader confirms plan to cause Armageddon
Paging Sean Penn. Mr. Penn? You said that the traditional Iranian chant of “Death to America!” shouldn’t be taken literally. What do you make of this?
Iran has prepared almost 200,000 young men in countries across the Middle East to help with the arrival of the Mahdi, a Muslim leader who will usher in justice prior to the Day of Judgment, a Revolutionary Guard commander said earlier this week. Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said recent violence across the region, including the rise of the Islamic State group, was a sign the arrival of the messianic Muslim leader was imminent, the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reported.
Jafari said the current developments in the region, “the formation of [the Islamic State group] and Takfiri [extremist] groups, and the events that occurred in the past years are paving the ground for the emergence of Imam Mahdi,” Middle East Monitor reported. “You can now see the positive results in the readiness of nearly 200,000 young armed in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.”
Shiite Muslims generally believe the Mahdi will arrive following a period of widespread violence and instability, and will usher in justice and an event like the Armageddon, the conclusive battle between good and evil.
Today the US and the EU lifted economic sanctions on Iran, because the Islamic Republic has met the “political commitments” of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Let’s be clear: Major General Mohammed Ali Jafari is not a commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC); Jafari is the commander of the IRGC. The formal name is the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution. Jafari is its highest-ranking officer.
Jafari said that the 200,000 men have been prepared to help the Mahdi in the final battle between good and evil. The Mahdi will usher in an era of peace and justice by imposing Islam on the world by force. In order to conquer the planet, the Mahdi will need the best and most destructive weapons available.
But Iran would never acquire The Bomb. Heavens, no!
Please. The head of the IRGC just admitted that Iran is doing everything in its power to make the world submit to Islam. That’s why Iranian foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif looked like this the day that the JCPOA—the Iranian nuclear deal—was finalized.
It’s easy to fool ourselves that Iranian intentions are pretty much the same as those of everybody else. Well, the commander of the IRGC just said that a messianic figure is going to appear shortly, and the Iranian armed forces stand ready to help him fight the final battle between Muslims and non-Muslims.
In the US Army, the Chief of Staff is the highest-ranking officer, but by law he has no operational command authority. General Mark A. Miley can’t give any orders. The chain of command for the US armed forces is as follows.
President of the United States
Secretary of Defense
Commanders of the Combatant Commands
I get a lot of mail from non-Iranians who tell me that we have nothing to worry about from Iran. Let me ask those people a question.
This is General Lloyd J. Austin III, head of US Central Command (CENTCOM).
How would you feel if Austin made the following statement?
“The United States has armed and trained almost 200,000 young men in countries across the world to help with the return of Jesus Christ. Recent global violence, including the rise of the Islamic State, is a sign that the return of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is imminent. You can now see the positive results in the readiness of nearly 200,000 young armed Christians in the UK, France, Brazil, Japan, and India. The United States military stands prepared to help Christ defeat the forces of evil and usher in a new era of peace and justice.”
You’d all have strokes. Austin would be immediately and RIGHTFULLY relieved of duty and carted away in a straitjacket.
So why is it different when the head of the IRGC says that Iran is going to help the Mahdi defeat non-Muslims in a global war?
Iranian propaganda has backfired
Here’s what the Iranians actually believe, due to their own propaganda. They’re dead serious.
A senior Iranian military commander in charge of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps claimed that the 10 U.S. sailors who were recently captured and subsequently released by the Islamic Republic “started crying after [their] arrest,” according to Persian language comments made during military celebrations this weekend.
Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the IRGC, which is responsible for boarding the U.S. ships and arresting the sailors, claimed in recent remarks, the “American sailors started crying after arrest, but the kindness of our Guard made them feel calm.”
“Since the end of the Second World War, no country has been able to arrest American military personnel,” the commander said, according to an independent translation of his Persian-language remarks made Friday during a “martyrs’ commemoration ceremony” in Isfahan.
Well, except for North Korea, the Soviet Union, North Vietnam, Laos, Iraq, Somalia, and the People’s Republic of China, Iran is indeed the only country to have captured American military personnel since the end of World War II.
Meanwhile, during Friday prayers in Iran, a commander of the IRGC unit that detained the U.S. boats claimed that the American military cowered when faced down by Iranian troops.
“I saw the weakness, cowardice, and fear of American soldiers myself. Despite having all of the weapons and equipment, they surrendered themselves with the first action of the guardians of Islam,” Ahmad Dolabi, an IRGC commander, said in Persian-language remarks at a prayer service in Iran’s Bushehr providence.
“American forces receive the best training and have the most advanced weapons in the world,” he added. “But they did not have the power to confront the Guard due to weakness of faith and belief.”
You need to understand that they’re not kidding. They’re acting out of religious zealotry. To them, the US is genuinely—not metaphorically—the Great Satan; because Americans aren’t Muslim, they’re weak and easily defeated. Islam in and of itself will
