Open Thread: What the heck is Glenn Beck talking about?

Glenn Beck and his guest make some pretty outlandish claims about Iran in this video, including:

  • Ayatollah Khomeini banned Twelver Shiism in post-revolution Iran;
  • Jesus is a “deputy” of the Hidden Imam who will force people to convert to Islam at the end of days;
  • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is hastening the apocalypse by planning a genocidal war against the Judeo-Christian world; and
  • Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is a “secret, closet Twelver Shiite.”

We’d like to hear your thoughts.  Comments are welcome in the section below (h/t EA).
