Elections in Iran resulted in moderate conservatives, who are opposed to Ahmadinejad, winning a majority of seats in the Iranian parliament. Reformists, also not in alliance with Ahmadinejad, won more seats than those of Ahmadinejad's party as well.
Ahmadinejad's response was to cry out that Iran would not be intimidated by the demands to dismantle its nuclear program, and of course he tore into Bush, saying, "Bush is the most hated person in the world."
The West believes that Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons, but Ahmadinejad has denied the allegations, claiming that the nuclear development plans are for only generating electricity.
As Ahmadinejad escalates tensions with the United States and enriches uranium, his debate that cast doubt on the Nazi Holocaust has made him look foolish. Perhaps the recent vote is the people asking him to put more energy on domestic issues.
Aside from the votes regarding the parliament, election results also showed a heavy defeat for Ahmadinejad supporters.
Elsewhere in the region, Christian leaders issued a worldwide call for prayer regarding "Arafat Day." Arafat day is a day when leaders of Islam ascend to Mount Arafat for a day of prayer and blood sacrifice, and throwing rocks at Satan.
The day is in support of the belief that the Devil tempted Father Abraham on Mount Arafat to sacrifice Isaac instead of Ishmael. They believe that the way the story is relayed in Genesis is a lie, and it is the root of deception for Judaism and Christianity.
Arab Christian Ministers in the Middle East are praying against the stronghold of Islam on this day, hoping for Christians everywhere to unite in prayer on December 29th and 30th.
The elections in Iran, and this story about Arab Christian Ministers, makes me think. Is Islam collapsing from within? Have the people decided that they've had enough of the Jihadists?
Let's hope so.
