Tuesday, January 10, 2006 Talk of a hotel being built in time for the 12th Imam's reemergence
Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzzi. Discussions have been being held in the Islamic Parliament around the idea of building a hotel in order to accommodate pilgrims who wish to worship the 12th Imam, upon his reemergence [in the town of Jamkaran]. Mullah Mehdi Karoubi, the former minister of the interior and defeated presidential candidate, made the proposal; he has forecast that the 12th Imam will reemerge within the next year or two.
However, Ahmadinejad's own site FARDA, reports that Javad Aryamanesh, the member of the Islamic Parliament from Mash'had who sits on the cultural council stated: "We have it on good authority that anyone who specifies a date for the reemergence of the Mahdi, is a liar. Surely Mr. Karoubi jests when he says such a thing; he probably just wanted to have a bit of fun when he made those remarks. There are no plans for any hotels, however it's natural that places like Jamkaran, Qom and Mash'had, being that they're holy sites, will attract large crowds of the faithful from around the world and our tourism board will certainly look into responding to those pilgrims needs."
If he sees his shadow, does that mean six more weeks of jihad?
Motel 12. We'll leave a torch on for ya.
A hotel for the Great Getting Up Day. These slugs have no imagination.
Just in time for the anti-christ's coming out party.
"Hotel 12, we'll leave the light on for Iman"
You can book at a discount through jihatwire.com
They'll need a new road for the pilgrims to travel -- they should call it Route 666.
Are you the 12th Imam, come to bring death and destruction to the infidel and raise believers up to paradise with 72 virgins apiece?
No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Suites last night.
The Very-Hot Marriott
"So, are you the Twelfth Imam?"
"No, but I did stay at a Jamkaran Inn Express last night."
Damn you! A fatwa on you and your family!
A.Q. KHAN!!!!!!!! You didn't book through Priceline!!!!!!
It means there will soon be a second sun rising over Iran..
Do we want these nutcases to have nuclear materials?
My family has plenty of fatwa to go around, thank you. In fact we're trying to lose some.
Careful! They are known to light their fatwas!
