From WND News: For the first time, Iran’s highest-ranking military official has tied the reappearance of the last Islamic messiah to the regime being prepared to go to a war based on ideology. ‘With having the treasure of the Holy Defense, Valayat (Guardianship of the Jurist) and martyrs, we are ready for a big war,’ said the Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi. ‘Of course this confrontation has always continued; however, since we are in the era of The Coming, this war will be a significant war.’ Shi’ites believe that at the end of time great wars will take place, and Imam Mahdi, the Shi’ites’ 12th imam, will reappear and kill all the infidels (Israel, America, and Europe), raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

Iran’s leaders have repeatedly threatened to attack Israel if it launches a strike on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear facilities.
