IRI Preparing Mahdi Special Forces for terror and destruction of the West
The Qods Forces, a special Iranian unit of thousands of operatives tasked with exporting Iran’s Islamic revolution, are being told to step up preparations for terrorism for the coming of the last Islamic messiah and the destruction of the West.
Ali Saeedi, the Iranian supreme leader’s representative to the Revolutionary Guards, emphasized during a Friday sermon in Tehran that the Islamic republic must directly confront America so that the necessary environment is created for the reappearance of Mahdi, the Shiite’s 12th imam, who will kill all infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

“In three points of history, God directly confronts the will of unruly humans in which, of course, the Right will overcome the False,” Saeedi said, according to the Sepah News, the Guards’ official publication. “The first point in history was during the era of pharaoh, the second era was Bani Abbas, and the third is our current era in which it seems that God has willed us to enlighten the world with the coming of Imam Mahdi.”
Saeedi, “Many of the signs [necessary] for the coming have taken place during the previous years; however, the main sign will take place right before the coming.”
There are five levels of readiness that have to be prepared for the coming, he said: “Individual readiness, the readiness for creating the environment, systematic readiness, the readiness in the region and the international readiness. This means Occupy Wall Street must take place, the Americans must lose hope with the Democratic Party and others, and lose faith in the U.N., while at the same time the unraveling in the Middle East, which was not ripe before, must have taken place before the coming.”
This is the first time a high-ranking Iranian official has stated on the record that the Qods Forces are not only involved in the region, but also internationally for a final confrontation with the West.
“The Revolutionary Guards are one vehicle for preparation for the coming, and in the current Islamic Awakening [the Arab Spring] in the region and on international arena, the Qods Forces play a major role in preparing the readiness of the human force needed for such an event,” Saeedi said. “The chief commander of the Guards and the supreme leader’s representative are tasked for preparing the individual readiness, regional readiness as well as international readiness for the coming.”
In another Guards’ weekly publication, Sobhe Sadegh, a front-page analysis explains that the opening of Iran’s geopolitics and the empowerment of its Islamic power are a reality in which Iran’s influence has expanded not only in the region, but also in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Asia and even in Europe and America.
As was the fall of socialism and the Eastern bloc, the analysis promises, so will be the fall of the capitalism and liberal democracy.
The analysis refers to the statements of the founder of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini:
- “I say with all certainty that the 21st century will be the century of Islam.”
- “I say with all certainty that Islam will conquer all key entrenchments of the world.”
- “I say with all certainty that Islam will defeat all world powers.”
- “I say with all certainty that the 21st century is the century where the oppressed will be victorious over the oppressors.”
While the Qods Forces have recently expanded their operations in shipment of explosives to Latin America, Africa and other places in the world, and at the same time have put terror cells on high alert for terrorist acts, the Islamic regime in Iran has expanded its nuclear program in which over 11,000 centrifuges are now running at two facilities, increasing its enriched uranium stock.
As of the last report in May by the IAEA, Iran had enough enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs, and despite all negotiations and recent sanctions, the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, announced days ago that there will be no turning back from the nuclear path.
Suicide Bombers Poised to Strike U.S., Iran Warns
Iran has sleeper cells throughout the United States and the West that will unleash suicide bombings should Iranian nuclear facilities be attacked.
The leaders of the Islamic regime have long prepared for a confrontation with the United States. Now, with tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, U.S. Navy assets taking position in the Persian Gulf, Israel threatening strikes against Iranian nuclear sites and the decision by the regime in Tehran to pursue its goal of obtaining nuclear weapons, the Iranians are making it clear to America that U.S. military bases around the world and sites inside the U.S. will be attacked if Iranian nuclear facilities are attacked.
In a recent Friday prayers sermon in Tehran, the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, promised that if America attacked Iran, Iran would respond by causing 10 times as much destruction to America as it had caused to Iran. Others in the regime have been more specific.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper recently told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about his concerns of Iran’s willingness to attack the United States in response to any confrontation.
As I reported last June, Brig. Gen. Mohammad-Reza Naghdi, during a gathering of high-ranking members of the Revolutionary Guards command and the Basij militia, announced that Iranian assets have successfully infiltrated deep within the West, from Europe to New York.
Another commander of the Guards, Hussein Babai, revealed that Hezbollah terrorist cells, under the direction of Iran, began forming after the 2006 war between Israel and the Lebanese Hezbollah. With the current Arab Spring, they have expanded their operations. Their mission, Babai said, is to help create an Islam-dominated world.
With my background as a CIA spy in the Revolutionary Guards, I can attest to how the Guards successfully use mosques, Islamic cultural centers, Islamic student associations, alliances with other Islamic groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and Muslims from Afghani and Pakistani groups to infiltrate the West and infect its society.
The Iranian Qods Forces along with Hezbollah cells have a large presence in Latin America, especially in Venezuela, and through collaboration with drug cartels, they get into Mexico and from there into the United States.
In order to understand their motives, one must understand their ideology, which is best described in articles by Alireza Forghani, the former governor of Kish Province and an analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp. I recently exposed one piece, carried on every major Iranian media outlet and within the Revolutionary Guards, that detailed Iran’s religious duty to destroy Israel and kill all Jews. Forghani now promises an Iranian response to any attack by America on the world stage.
His latest piece, entitled “We Welcome War,” warns America that within 48 hours of any attack on Iran, all U.S. military installations around the world will be attacked by martyrdom-seeking Muslims.
He then quotes the Quran (Al-Anfal 60): “Prepare with all your armaments and force in your possession to confront the enemy so that your enemies and enemies of Allah will become fearful.”
In Islam, he says, war is a duty and Allah will resent any Muslim who backs down from it.
“America should know that while they have been preparing for war, we have been ready for the re-appearance of the Imam Mahdi, Shiites’ 12th Imam, and ready for war and jihad,” he says. “America should know that while it pays its soldiers to fight, the Islamic fighters wage jihad in war with pride, as dying otherwise is too shameful for them.”
Then Forghani makes the clearest threat by stating that America should know there are many young people of Hezbollah who are placed outside Iran and that they will carry out attacks and martyrdom operations on every American military base in 112 countries around the world in less than 48 hours after any aggression by America.
He concludes that “America needs to know that while the American youth shout the slogan ‘Stop the war,’ for fear of dying, the children of Ruhollah [Khomeini], founder of the Islamic regime, never flee from war and always pray to Allah for the chance of martyrdom.”
Renowned Iranian ideologue Hassan Rahim Poor Azgadi, in a speech titled ”A Model for Tomorrow,” which recently aired on Iran’s state-owned TV, called for jihad in Europe and America. He said that Iran’s forces must get ready for a global operation.
He says that the Islamic revolution in Iran, as promised, has now been exported and warned that “our fellow fighters” are present in all five continents of the world in the fight against imperialism and in preparation for the coming of Mahdi. Shiites believe the 13th-century imam demands world chaos and destruction — Armageddon — before he will return.
An international jihad must be provoked, Azgadi said, and there must be no fear of anyone. Citing Khomeini’s dictate that “We must destroy Israel and free Jerusalem,” Azgadi concludes that “We will do this.”
40,000 IRI Agents Reside in the Western Hemispher
Iran has expanded its terror network and now has tens of thousands of agents in Latin America, according to a former Iranian official who has witnessed the regime’s crimes against humanity inside Iran and has knowledge of its terror network targeting the West.
In interviews with the opposition outside Iran, the official revealed that more than 40,000 of the regime’s security, intelligence and propaganda forces successfully have been placed over time in Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela.
These forces consist mostly of former interrogators, torturers and security forces along with the members of the Qods Forces.
Many of them, according to the source, are other nationalities, such as Afghans, Lebanese, Iraqis and Somalis.
Hassan Rahim Pour Azghodi, a member of The Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in Iran and a noted ideologist and theorist of the Islamic regime who visited Ecuador, Venezuela and several other Latin American countries last year, is a former interrogator and a torturer who is now a close adviser of Ghassem Soliemani, the chief commander of the Qods Forces, the source said.
Azghodi, in a lecture last September aired on Iranian state-owned television, stated, “We must get ready for global operation. … Our fellow fighters are present in all five continents of the world. … An international jihad must be provoked; we must fear no one.”
According to the source, many of these forces have flown directly from Tehran to Caracas, Venezuela, whose president, Hugo Chavez, is an ally of Tehran. Many also have been placed in Bolivia. Their duties are to expand the regime’s ideology, gather intelligence and be ready for operations against the West.
“We have Imam Ali Mosques in Bolivia, in Venezuela Imam Ali centers, as well as in Brazil and other countries of the region,” the source said. “Many of the forces are a front involved in projects to help the host country such as building homes, roads and others. These forces always get together and share information in the mosques.”
As reported in May through a source who served in Iranian intelligence and had recently defected to a country in Europe, the Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence division runs operations out of mosques.
Those operations include recruitment, reconnaissance and transfer of arms and cash.
This source also verified then that all Imam Ali Mosques are controlled by regime intelligence operatives and that the cells are well placed in Europe and America for terrorist acts.
“The Qods Force has established a command and control center in both Bolivia and Venezuela. Though it has presence in Europe and other parts of the world, it has focused on Latin America,” the former official said. “They have forces in Guatemala but mostly for training on torture methods – though not modern but very effective – as Guatemala is one of the best in the world and training for torture is one of its resources for income.”
Many of the forces are also trained in Iran for suicide bombings. They are brainwashed and go through a ritual in which they are naked but for their shorts and are washed on a stone where verses of the Quran are read to them. Then they are taken to the supreme leader for final approval.
According to the source, members also include Palestinians and Iraqis, and many were behind suicide bombings against American forces in Iraq. Should war break out, these forces are to conduct terrorist acts in Europe and America.
The source warned that the regime is active in recruiting and training for terrorist activities and assassinations of the opposition in Canada and America. Recently, Hamid Mohammadi, the Iranian cultural affairs counselor at the Islamic regime’s embassy in Ottawa, in an interview with an Iran-based website, urged those loyal to the regime to be ready to advance the Islamic regime’s interests.
The source, also revealing atrocities inside Iran, said that as a reward, the Islamic regime’s judicial officials offered virgin girls to the torturers to rape, calling it permissible in the Quran. Virgins will end up in heaven even if they have sinned, according to the Quran, so they wanted to deny them this entry.
Thousands of girls, some as young as 13, were rounded up and taken to prisons, at times in secret locations, and raped before execution. The interrogators and torturers were even rewarded for cruelty and the number of executions conducted, the source said.
The former Guards’ intelligence officer also verified that rape of girls and women in prisons across Iran is routine and mass executions and burials still occur for those who dare to challenge the regime. At times the families never know what happened to their loved ones.
