Just in case you didn't know. And I have absolutely nothing to wear. The recent disrupted London based terrorist plot seems to fit suspiciously well as far as timing is concerned or it may have all been a coincidence. The long awaited 'other shoe' has not yet dropped, but I have to admit the Dark Lords of the Shia have been making me nervous lately with their veiled threats and mutterings and the other brand of militant Islam represented by the Al Qaeda always hates to be left out as well. One never knows for sure what's going to happen and when it comes to crackpots and murderous fanatics, the crystal ball is hazy at best.
There has been a lot of speculation throughout the internet but this Infidel may be a Sage but is a hesitant prophet. Could there be something be brewing? Absolutely. Will a world war break out on Tuesday? I doubt it. But I'll top of the gas tanks just in case. More here: Opinion Journal's August 22 Does Iran have something in store? . A couple of large FReeRepublic posts here, here and here. And FrontPageMagazine's Iran's Day of Terror?, and NewsMax's Iran Hints at Aug. 22 Doomsday for Israel.
"In Islam, as in Judaism and Christianity," the professor writes, "there are certain beliefs concerning the cosmic struggle at the end of time - Gog and Magog, anti-Christ, Armageddon, and for Shiite Muslims, the long-awaited return of the Hidden Imam, ending in the final victory of the forces of good over evil, however these may be defined.
"Mr Ahmadinejad [the Iranian president] and his followers clearly believe that this time is now, and that the terminal struggle has already begun and is indeed well advanced. It may even have a date, indicated by several references by the Iranian president to giving his final answer to the US about nuclear development by August 22. This was at first reported as 'by the end of August', but Mr Ahmadinejad's statement was more precise."
BTW, we just had sudden 10 cent drop in gas prices. I was pleasantly surprised.
Is that date for this year or next. I need to know.
