Iran votes for the ‘divine assessment’
The Principle-ist won an impressive 63 per cent of the vote, having stood on a platform of maintaining the institutional status quo, sustaining anti-Western attitudes and progressing a nuclear programme. He is the one who has been chosen to lead Iran out of recession and to tackle falling oil prices, government overspending, high inflation and chronic unemployment.
And to pursue his global vision – the death of capitalism, the eradication of Israel, and the founding of a new caliphate.
President Ahmadinejad is devoted to the Hidden Imam, the Messiah-like figure of Shi’a Islam, and he will now be emboldened in his belief that his government must prepare the country for the return of the Mahdi – the divine saviour who will appear at the End of Days in the company of Isa (Jesus). President Ahmadinejad’s manifesto and entire political strategy – domestic and foreign – is predicated upon this eschatological religio-political event. His military involvement in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq is purposely designed to agitate against Israel to hasten the Last Day.
This election was not remotely democratic. Iran is ruled under a system known as Velayat-e Faqih, or ‘Rule by the Supreme Jurist’, who is presently Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He wields ultimate power, by the will of Allah. He has urged all Iranians, including the losers, to support the re-elected president, describing the result as a cause of ‘real celebration’. He declared: "Enemies may want to spoil the sweetness of this event... with some kind of ill-intentioned provocations." The result, he asserted, was a ‘divine assessment’.
Iran’s clerics are the guardians of Shi’a theology and it is their task to ensure that all legislation complies with Islamic law. Although they are riddled with division, they are united by one aspect of foreign policy – the destruction of Israel. For they hold to the divine promise made in the Al-Israa Sura (Sura 17) that they will liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque – the first 'Kaba' to the Muslims – and will enter it as they have entered it the first time (Sura 17, ayat 7). And the prophetic foundation is the message of Mohammad that Islam will enter every house and will spread over the entire world.
President Ahmadinejad has pledged his life to the ‘liberation of Palestine’, and he now has four more years to fulfil the divine will.
This is Iran’s final solution.
And the world’s Obamageddon.
