    Islamic History Expert: Never Will be Moslem Peace With Israel

    Islam History Professor Moshe Sharon of Hebrew University told a counter-terrorism conference Thursday that, "There is no possibility
    of peace between Israel and the Palestinians whatsoever - ever."

    Sharon, speaking at the annual conference of Herzeliya's Counter
    Terrorism Institute, said that Iran is dead serious about obtaining
    and using nuclear weapons in order to bring about its vision of an
    Islamic End of Days.


    Sharon's assessment focused on the danger posed by Iran. From studying
    Iranian culture, literature, newspapers, broadcasts and interviews
    with major players in the Islamic regime, Sharon concludes that a deep
    belief in a Shiite messiah is at the root of Iran's nuclear project.
    "They truly believe that the Shiite messiah, the twelfth Imam (also
    known as the Mahdi), is here, and that he will reveal himself. What
    moves the Iranian government and leadership today is first and
    foremost the wish to bring about the twelfth Imam."

    Addressing the theological doctrine of how exactly the 12th Imam will
    be revealed, Sharon explained: "How will they bring him? Through an
    apocalypse. He (the Mahdi) needs a war. He cannot come into this world
    without an Armageddon. He wants an Armageddon. The earlier we
    understand this the better. Ahmadinejad wants nuclear weapons for

    Sharon has in the past insisted that the Western world was engaging in
    great folly by differentiating between radical and peaceful Islam.
    "All of a sudden we see that the greatest interpreters of Islam are
    politicians in the Western world," he wrote. "They know better than
    all the speakers in the mosques, all those who deliver terrible
    sermons against anything that is either Christian or Jewish. These
    Western politicians know that there is good Islam and bad Islam. They
    know even how to differentiate between the two, except that none of
    them know how to read a word of Arabic."

    "The difference between Judaism, Christianity and Islam is as follows:
    Judaism speaks about national salvation - namely that at the end of
    the story, when the world becomes a better place, Israel will be in
    its own land, ruled by its own king and serving G-d. Christianity
    speaks about the idea that every single person in the world can be
    saved from his sins, while Islam speaks about ruling the world. I can
    quote here in Arabic, but there is no point in quoting Arabic, so let
    me quote a verse in English: "Allah sent Mohammed with the true
    religion so that it should rule over all the religions."

    "The idea, then, is not that the whole world would will necessarily
    become Moslem at this time, but that the whole world would be subdued
    under the rule of Islam." That, Sharon insists, is the plan, in black- and-white, of the Iranian regime.

    "This is why [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad seeks nuclear
    weapons," he emphasized. "The faster we realize this the better."
