“I suggest that all children read this letter and that it be read in schools and universities and that state television and radio repeatedly broadcast it”, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, head of the Guardians Council said.
“Whether [the U.S.] answers it or not, it will be to their loss. If they answer, what will they want to say? If they don’t it will show their weakness and resignation”, he added.
Jannati added that the U.S. was heading towards its demise.
The more I read this letter, hard as it is to follow the psychotic ramblings of a self-proclaimed madman, the more I am convinced it is merely a check mark in Ahmadinejad's to do list before his expectation of the arrival of the twelfth Imam and Armageddon.
When an aircraft crashed in Teheran a few months ago, killing 108 people, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thanked the dead, saying: "What is important is that they have shown the way to martyrdom which we must follow."
Is this the statement of a rational national leader?
A few months ago, he told a cleric that he had felt the hand of God entrancing world leaders as he delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly.
Ahmadinejad described how one of his Iranian colleagues had claimed to have seen a glow of light around Mahmoud as he began his speech to the UN.
"I felt it myself too," Mahmoud recounts. "I felt that all of a sudden the atmosphere changed there. And for 27-28 minutes all the leaders did not blink…It's not an exaggeration, because I was looking."They were astonished, as if a hand held them there and made them sit. It had opened their eyes and ears for the message of the Islamic Republic."
Of course they were astonished, they were not expecting to be subjected to the rantings of a man speaking as if demonically possessed.
Ahmadinejad boasts that the Imam (yes, the missing one, who is supposed to return) gave him the presidency for a single task: provoking a "clash of civilizations" in which the Muslim world, led by Iran, takes on the "infidel" West, led by the United States, and defeats it in a slow but prolonged contest.
You see, Mahmoud believes he has khalvats (tête-à-têtes) with the Hidden Imam. According to Shia lore, the Imam is a messianic figure who, although in hiding, remains the true Sovereign of the World. In every generation, the Imam chooses 36 men, (and, for obvious reasons, no women) naming them the owtad or "nails", whose presence, hammered into mankind's existence, prevents the universe from "falling off". Although the "nails" are not known to common mortals, it is, at times, possible to identify one thanks to his deeds. Guess who thinks he's a nail? Survey says, Mahmoud!
So, although much is published about his rantings regarding Israel, it is not Israel that he's after although its annihilation would be a side benefit. He wants to be an instrument of the Hidden Imam who will destroy the infidel, punish the West and remove the stains of disgrace from Islam.
Unfortunately for Mahmoud, the Imam is so well hidden that he exists only in Mahmoud's hallucinations.
Unfortunately for us, we have a very mentally ill fanatic leading a dangerous nation that is very close to having true destructive power.
We have learned what happens when you appease goose stepping insane arrogance before; we must not let history repeat this mistake again.
