Iran August 22

I am getting all sorts of inquiries about August 22 and Iran. I guess today's Wall Street Journal column by Bernard Lewis has sparked renewed curiosity in the Islamic significance of August 22. Well, here is the link to the post on the matter: "Welcoming the 12th Imam? Iran and August 22."
That should have all you need to know. If not, recall what Iran's president said recently:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday the solution to the Middle East crisis is to destroy Israel. In a speech during an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders, Ahmadinejad also called for an immediate halt to fighting in Lebanon between Israel and the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah.

More need now to be and to stay standing with Israel.

I will rewrite a new post and update it with the latest as soon as I have a break from the busy schedule at Witherspoon, which by the way is going very well. I even met up with a fellow blogger: Trent at X-Catholics.
