    In a greeting to the world's Christians for the coming new year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he expects both Jesus and the Shiite messianic figure, Imam Mahdi, to return and "wipe away oppression."

    Here is an interesting article about the Mahdi in the Encyclopaedia of the Orient. Sunni and Shia Muslims view the Mahdi differently:

    The Mahdi just may be the anti-Christ....

    The Jews are looking for the Messiah, so they will accept the Anti-Christ when he comes. The Muslims will be looking for the Mahdi to come, and are also looking for Jesus to come back to wipe out their enemies, so they will accept the Anti-Christ. Christ will come back and take up the believers, and that may be interpreted by the Muslims as Jesus wiping us out. The Hindus are looking for Kalki, so they will accept the Anti-Christ. The Buddhists are looking for Maitreya, so they will accept the Anti-Christ. And then the atheists will be looking for a world politician to deliver peace, so they will accept the Anti-Christ. With everyone expecting someone, it will all fit nicely together.

    The Muslims also believe in the Anti-Christ. They call him Al-Dajjal (the liar). They believe that Christ will return and kill him. Jesus will then kill the pigs, eliminate the tax placed on non Muslims in Islamic countries, and Jesus will judge the world by the Quran and not by the Gospel. Jesus will then live for 40 years, then die, and the Muslims will pray over him. They have a different idea of the end times than Christians do. They say that one of the signs of the end of the world will be the sun rising from the west instead of the east. All the Muslims will die, but the non Muslims will be alive to see the end of the world.
