Follow up to Netanhyahu's Middle East speech: Justice, Muslim style, cometh?

This is an update to the previous post. Please read the previous post to understand the full impact of this post, and then you will understand better exactly where we are on the prophetic timeline...

In the last post, I read the headline about how Iran has been going around strengthening ties on the basis of common interests "and justice." Initially it seemed like a throwaway part of the quote ("Tehran is ready to increase ties with African countries and particularly Islamic ones in all fields and on the basis of justice.”) but the world justice kept nagging at me for these last few minutes so I looked it up. And here is the root as to the driving force behind Iran's world tour of strengthening ties. Justice is a key word for all Muslims. Any Muslim reading that will understand what Iran has in mind. According to the "Religion of Islam" website,

"Justice is an obligation of Islam and injustice is forbidden. The centrality of justice to the Quranic value system is displayed by the following verse: “We sent Our Messengers with clear signs and sent down with them the Book and the Measure in order to establish justice among the people…” (Quran 57:25)

"Islam’s approach to justice is comprehensive and all-embracing. Any path that leads to justice is deemed to be in harmony with Islamic Law. God has demanded justice and, although He has not prescribed a specific route, has provided general guidelines, on how to achieve it. He has neither prescribed a fixed means by which it can be obtained, nor has He declared invalid any particular means or methods that can lead to justice. Therefore, all means, procedures, and methods that facilitate, refine, and advance the cause of justice, and do not violate the Islamic Law are valid." Quote from Qaradawi, Yusuf, ‘Madkhal li-Darasah al-Sharia al-Islamiyya,’)"

"‘To render justice’, in the words of Sarkhasi, a noted classical Islamic jurist, ‘ranks as the most noble of acts of devotion next to belief in God. It is the greatest of all the duties entrusted to the prophets…and it is the strongest justification for man’s stewardship of earth..."

We can see the prophetic indicators on overdrive, as the Muslim nations ready themselves for bringing about justice in the world. This comes as no surprise after the revealing of the video produced by the Clerics at top levels of Iraninan government stating explicitly that the 12th Imam is so near

Iranian Video Says Mahdi is 'Near'

"New evidence has emerged that the Iranian government sees the current unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi--or Islamic messiah--is about to appear. CBN News has obtained a never-before-seen video produced by the Iranian regime that says all the signs are moving into place -- and that Iran will soon help usher in the end times. While the revolutionary movements gripping the Middle East have created uncertainty throughout the region, the video shows that the Iranian regime believes the chaos is divine proof that their ultimate victory is at hand."

Joel C. Rosenberg responded to the news of the video with this comment: "It’s a grave development for Israel and the US because it reinforces the notion that the Iranian regime believes chaos and carnage in the epicenter are essential to the Mahdi’s coming."

Meahwhile, since I began this post, Syria's Cabinet has resigned and the nation teeters...
