After the Mahdi

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
in response to reader comment: The Coming of the Mahdi

Submitted by Martha (Australia), Jan 16, 2006 at 18:00

The coming of the Mahdi - like the coming of Jesus Christ and other religions promised returns - in a blaze of war, violence and apocalyptic events makes me wonder what kind of "peace" they can possibly hope for or expect after their return. It will be the peace of a single party dictatorship, the peace of the grave - or no peace at all - a desparate struggle by those who don't share their views and wish to live their lives free of temporal lobe insanity.
