Ahmadinejad: Egypt Revolution Reveals Hand of the 'Mahdi'


In the near future, will America and Israel somehow leave the Middle East? According to this news account from Iran's state-controlled Kahyan, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has told cheering crowds celebrating the 32nd anniversary of the Iranian Revolution that the Mahdi, the Muslim version of the messiah, is managing the Egyptian Revolution and global affairs, and that he will soon deal with the 'child of Satan' - the United States.

TEHRAN: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Friday that a new Middle East is being created, that would be free of the United States and the occupying regime of Israel. He backed the Arab uprisings, but also warned Egyptians to be wary of America's "friendly face."


Massive crowds of Iranians, waving flags and chanting "Death to Mubarak" and "Death to America," descended on Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Square. There, the president lashed out at the West and the Zionist regime in a speech marking the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.


"We will soon see a new Middle East materialize - one without America and the Zionist regime, and there will be no room in it for the World Arrogance," Ahmadinejad told the cheering crowds, who gathered despite cold and cloudy weather.


He warned Egyptians that the United States had “adopted a friendly face," saying that "we are friends of the peoples of North Africa and the Arab countries," and to be watchful and united. "You will be victorious,” he said. He went on to express Iranian support for the uprising in Egypt, with which Iran has no diplomatic ties: “The Iranian nation is your friend, and it is your right to freely choose your path. The Iranian nation backs this right of yours."


He urged the arrogant powers not to interfere in the internal affairs of countries like Egypt and Tunisia, saying that, "If you want people to trust you, first of all don't interfere in their affairs, and that includes Tunisia and Egypt. Let them be by themselves." He also asked of them, "What are you doing in Afghanistan? What are these military bases in the region for? Are you compassionate or just hypocrites?"

He argued that the West is deceitful in claiming that, with the two-state slogan, it can pave the way for the occupying regime of Israel to dominate the region. He said that that United States is an “accomplice to the oppression of the Zionist regime,” and urged them to "come and take away the Zionist regime, which is the source of all crimes ... take it away and liberate the region. Free the region and give it to the people and take this regime, which is the child of Satan (the United States), out."


Ahmadinejad said that the world is witnessing a revolution managed by Imam Mahdi, the 12th infallible imam who disappeared in the 10th century and who, it is believed, will return to usher in a rule of justice. "The final move has begun … we are in the middle of a global revolution managed by the dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of the imam in managing it."


Despite rain and snow, the turnout was high at the mass rally marking the victory of the Islamic Revolution 32 years ago. Crowds of Iranians chanted pro-Egypt and anti-U.S. slogans as they participated in the anniversary, which was covered by 1,100 domestic and foreign reporters. Similar marches occurred in provincial areas and, in all, rallies were held in 850 cities and some 400 small towns and villages.



The 1979 revolution toppled the monarchy of Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, a key U.S. ally in the region, ending 2,500 years of monarchial rule in the country. Diplomatic relations between Tehran and Washington were broken off soon after, and remain so to this day.


"Death to America! Death to Israel!" chanted the crowd as they carried Iranian flags, banners and posters of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, the late Imam Khomeini, who led the uprising against the shah, and of the current leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.


Elsewhere in his speech, Ahmadinejad insisted that the nation remains determined to continue on its nuclear path, and that Western countries should adopt a policy of coordination rather than confrontation.    



"The Iranian nation will continue on its way, and it doesn't need you (world powers),” he said, “Iran is now the most independent and dignified nation … its revolution was a great event in moving toward the summit of perfection."


On Thursday, Ahmadinejad addressed foreign ambassadors and representatives, saying that Tehran had expanded its international ties based on the principles of justice, maintaining human dignity and love, and that its message to the world was of peace, comfort and purity. "Today, divine and humane values are appropriate in global relations," he said, "A shining future for the world would come to pass with general cooperation in its management, based on the principles of justice and spirituality, which is found in the perfection of human beings.”


The Iranian president also noted that the Islamic Republic welcomes every step toward establishing fair relations between nations.
