Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that the conflict between Lebanon and Israel could trigger “a hurricane” of broader fighting in the Middle East.
Ahmadinejad’s nation is a major backer of the Hezbollah militant group and a sworn enemy of Israel. In his comments, he referred to a proverb that says: “He who raises the wind will get a hurricane.”
“That proverb fully relates to the Middle East, which is a very volatile region,” he said. “And it will be a strong hurricane which will strike really hard.”
El Jefe adds this comment:
Mad Jad is saying that things are going to happen, or that, if they do, nobody should be surprised, because we all have “hurricanes” coming. In particular, I think Mad Jad’s use of the term “hurricane” - supposedly AP tells us, from a proverb - interesting. I hope Homeland Security is on alert.
Is India feeling some of the premonitory breezes from the coming storm? According to a story in The Times of India (warning to readers — expect numerous popup ads at this site):
US embassy put on terror alert
The next few days are likely to be very tense for the US embassy here. For a top IB official has sent a letter to security agencies with a chilling message the American embassy is expected to be targetted any time between now and July 30 by terrorists owing allegiance to an Iranian terror group.
This intelligence input has already sent security agencies scampering to plug real or imagined weaknesses in the security ring around the mission. Sources revealed on Monday that the input was received early last week and has been circulated among all security agencies in Delhi, including the police and paramilitary forces.
“The US embassy has been on an extremely high state of alert and things will remain the same for the next few days. The input has even identified one of the men likely to participate in the attack and efforts are on to establish his presence,” said a source.
“The threat is that they would launch an all-out assault in the nature of a ‘fidayeen’ attack. The security review was done in keeping with this possibility,” said the official. According to the input, the Iranians in the group of 20 are associated with a Iran terror group comprising terrorists who earlier backed Saddam Hussein.
The alert has also left many wondering if international terrorist groups are trying to join hands with Kashmir terror groups. The letter specifically mentions that people of Kashmiri descent are expected to help the Iranians and Afghans carry out the attack. [emphasis added]
I saw a story yesterday about some Christian groups who interpret current events in the Middle East as a sign of the imminent arrival of the End Times.
But the problem isn’t the Christian chiliasts, it’s the Islamic ones, particularly Iran’s ruling Shi’ite oligarchy. They believe the Millennium is about to arrive, that the Twelfth Imam will soon appear to usher in the End, and that they are his appointed assistants.
And they are about to acquire nuclear weapons, while we dither around with the EU and the UN and the IAEA and Iran’s lapdog, Mohammed El Baradei.
I swear, we’re as nutty as Mad Jad, in our own way.
Just look at the anemometer spin!
