New Rantings From Mad Mahmoud

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that the end is near for Israel. Ahmadinejad has made headlines in the past for denying that the Holocaust ever occurred, and for threatening to wipe Israel off the map (with those nukes he's developing, no doubt).

In this most recent outburst, however, Ahmadinejad seems to envision a more imminent timetable:

I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene," he said. (Emphasis added.)

This is the man with whom Barack Obama wants to sit down and negotiate -- without precondition. We don't have to wonder if Obama would throw Israel under the bus; look what he did to his own grandmother.

As for the U.S., Ahmadinejad predicts:

Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started.

If he's referring to the inauguration of Obama, Ahdmadinejad should note that we survived the Carter administration, and likewise can survive Obama, if it comes to that.

Like an Obama groupie, moreover, Ahmadinejad has been seized with messianic fever:

With the appearance of the promised saviour... and his companions such as Jesus Christ, tyranny will be soon be eradicated in the world. (Emphasis added.)

Ahmadinejad has always been a devotee of the Mahdi, who Shiites believe disappeared more than a thousand years ago and who will return one day to usher in a new era of peace and harmony.

Maybe that's why Obama thinks that he can persuade Ahmadinejad to be reasonable if only the two can meet -- maybe Obama's secret plan is to convince Ahmadinejad that he, Obama, is the Mahdi!
