Apocalypse Soon

That crazy Ahmidenijad and his dreams of Immams and Doomsday may be planning to actually jump-start the Apocalypse on Aug. 22 (in honor of Muhammed`s ascent into Heaven), according to Ultima Thule. First, it appears they may be planning an attack on Israel`s nuclear reactor at Dimona. This, they believe, could start the Last War and trigger the unveiling of the 12th Immam and the Kingdom of Islam.

I mention it here because of a report I heard last night on the John Batchelor show about the ominous possibility that the long-term strategy of Iran and Hezbollah in this current war with Israel may be a direct strike on this facility with one of Iran's guided long-range missiles, a missile reportedly accurate to within 100 meters. If a direct missile strikes this facility and manages to crack the shell, the resultant contamination would be devastating.

There are an increasing number of signs that Iran may have deliberately pulled the trigger on this confrontation with Israel through its proxy Hezbollah, and a number of Iranian actions and statements by Ahmadinejad point to the same conclusion. If you read the article published right below from the Philadelphia Inquirer, the cofounder of the Iraq the Model blog believes that Ahmadinejad is framing the current crisis in apocalyptic terms and envisions an Armageddon, ending with the destruction of Israel and the return of the 12th Imam. Could this be Iran's way of making a nuclear strike on Israel without even needing a nuclear weapon?

The date of August 22nd has been mentioned by a number of writers, including Gordon Cucullu and Robert Spencer, as being one we should keep our eyes on. It is the date on which Mohammed supposedly ascended to the heavens on a white horse over the skies of Jerusalem. In regard to this Ahmadinejad recently declared that he would "illuminate the night sky over Jerusalem" in a magnificent display that would commemorate this great event.

Iranian friends tell me that there is growing alarm in the expatriate Iranian community that Ahmadinejad is planning a nuclear strike on Israel for the 22nd of August. All evidence continues to mount that this confrontation was not an accident and that Iran has a definite plan of escalation in mind.
