THE SHIA END OF TIMES

Reader comment on item: Iran's Nuclear Buildup and American Irrelevance

Submitted by Tom Dundee (United States), Feb 22, 2014 at 22:26

I understand the the Mahdi will only return during a period of chaos and war. So, starting a war is a win-win situation for the Shia. Correct?

If Iran starts a war, the Mahdi returns, leads them to victory and then leads the Faithful to Paradise.

If the Iran starts a war, gets blown apart, then they join Allah in Paradise because they died martyrs.

Are they that insane?
