You Better Watch Out/You Better Not Cry/You Better Not Pout I'm Telling You Why: Twelfth Imam Is Comin' to Town

By overlooking Shia eschatology, writes Robert Spencer, Obama has made end game intended to bring about the Mahdi's arrival far more likely:
The two powers that the Iranian mullahs have long designated as the “Great Satan” and the “Little Satan” – America and Israel – would be the only targets of an Iranian attempt to hasten the Twelfth Imam’s coming.
A nuclear strike from Tehran into Israel could kill, estimates say, upwards of twenty million people, completely destroying the Jewish State.
Barack Obama, by acceding to the Iranians’ nuclear ambitions, has given a tremendous impetus to these revenge fantasies, probably not realizing or caring that Iran’s mullahs take the prophesies of the Twelfth Imam very seriously indeed – seriously enough for them to bet the entire world upon them. Obama has just made the odds appear to them to be considerably more favorable than they were just a week ago.
Way to go, O!
