    From Steve Asher@3:800/432 to All on Wed Jan 11 00:54:21 2006
    Islam may be "ready to rule the world" in the view of
    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but God, through His prophets,
    declares a very different outcome when Iran (Persia) and allies
    make their move according to Ezekiel 38.

    Islam must prepare to rule the world, Iranian President Mahmoud
    Ahmadinejad told a crowd of theological students in Iran's holy
    city of Qom, according to a report.

    "We must believe in the fact that Islam is not confined to
    geographical borders, ethnic groups and nations. It's a universal
    ideology that leads the world to justice," Ahmadinejad said Jan. 5,
    according to Mehran Riazaty, a former Iran analyst for the Central
    Command of the Coalition Forces in Baghdad.

    Ahmadinejad, who has drawn global attention recently for his
    contention the Holocaust was a "myth," said: "We don't shy away
    from declaring that Islam is ready to rule the world."

    Riazaty, in a post on the website Regime Change Iran, said the Iranian president emphasized his current theme that the return of the Shiite
    messiah, the Mahdi, is not far away, and Muslims must prepare for it.

    According to Shiites, the 12th imam disappeared as a child in the year
    941. When he returns, they believe, he will reign on earth for seven
    years, before bringing about a final judgment and the end of the

    Ahmadinejad is urging Iranians to prepare for the coming of the Mahdi
    by turning the country into a mighty and advanced Islamic society and
    by avoiding the corruption and excesses of the West.

    "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 the
    Return," Ahmadinejad said. "If we work on the basis of the Expectation
    of the Return [of the Mahdi], all the affairs of our nation will be
    streamlined and the administration of the country will become easier."

    Riazaty pointed out that Iran's speaker of parliament, Mehdi Kahrubi,
    said Saturday that some people working closely with Ahmadinejad
    believe the Mahdi probably will return in the next two years, which
    means Iran needs to start building more hotels.
