They [the Iranians] have said this plan is rooted in their fundamental religious beliefs and doctrines regarding the return of their God to Earth. ~Peter Ferrara

Um, the Mahdi is not “their God,” because Twelver Shi’ites don’t believe that God was ever on earth, and indeed they take a dim view of people who do believe this. If Ferrara cannot get even this much right about the fundamental religious beliefs of Iran’s government, why would we trust anything else he has to say on this?
