    Is Barack Obama the "promised warrior" coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?

    The question has made the rounds in Iran since last month, when a pro-government Web site published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.

    According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet's cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us."

    In a curious coincidence Obama's first and second names--Barack Hussein--mean "the blessing of Hussein" in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means "he is with us," the magic formula in Majlisi's tradition.

    I wouldn't be surprised. But more importantly, how do you pronounce Shiite?

    When I see it I pronounce it "Shit" Muslims.
  6. Well you wouldn't want to ask me, :D

    I'll go with what you said.

    Not if he doesn't get a second term.

    I say after he is defeated in November we kick his ass out of the country and back to Kenya. I don't ever want to see his Jimmy Carter face on TV again.
  8. Of course, because he showed and proved in his book what is disgusting and worse than an apartheid state. Zionism attacked him because he is a just man, and he is a Nobel peace prize winner on merit. Now it is the turn of Nobel peace prize winner Obama to be insulted to attempt to make him lose, but he would won. President Carter'scourage probably comes from his knowledge that Jesus Christ was subjected to worse, and is even insulted to this day as in video below:
