    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims the United States is attempting to thwart the return of mankind's savior, according to reports from Al Arabiya, a television news station based in Dubai.

    Ahmadinejad reportedly claims he has documented evidence that the U.S. is blocking the return of Mahdi, the Imam believed by Muslims to be the savior.

    “We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a speech on Monday, according to Al Arabiya.

    "They have devised all these plans to prevent the coming of the Hidden Imam because they know that the Iranian nation is the one that will prepare the grounds for his coming and will be the supporters of his rule," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

    Ahmadinejad continued the rant by claiming there have been plots by both the West as well as countries in the East to wipe out his country, according to Iranian news Web site Tabak.

    "They have planned to annihilate Iran. This is why all policymakers and analysts believe Iran is the true winner in the Middle East," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the site. He also alleged that foreign nations seek to control Iran's oil and natural resources.

    It is clear that Mr. Ahmadinejad has no clue as who mankind's Savior is. And that is sad for him. May God open his eyes to the truth.

    What is clear is his elevator does not go to all floors.

    I have wondered if we could speed up the Lord's return by cutting off our foreign aid to Israel. But I know that would result in a lot of deaths. Time is ours. The Lord does not operate on our concept of it.

    Yes, I thought the same thing.

    My what a small god Ahmadinejad must have to be thwarted in his return by mere America.

    So Ahmalooni's still a nutjob? In later news, elderly German gent in Vatican admits he's not a Protestant and bears are seen not using public washrooms in sylvan settings. Film at 11.

    Are you a dispensationalist? I'm not. While I support Israel, it's not for religious reasons. The Lord will return on His own time.

    Not sure if this is what you intended to imply but dispensationalists do not believe that they can usher in the Lord's return. However, "Kingdom Now" and "Latter Rain" folks do.

    I know that's not what they believe. My main issue is that some believe that a third temple must be rebuilt before Jesus is able to come back. Sorry for the confusion. I should have phrased that better.

    Not exactly correct either. While it is true it will be rebuilt not because God is re-establishing the sacrifices but because the lost Jews will do it having failed to recognize the Savior. But this occurs during the tribulation which is when the wrath of God will be poured out on the world in the bowl judgments.

    I see we're into the usual sterile eschatological debates already, before even the end of page 1 of the thread...
