Mahdaviat
 n.— «A spokesman last week dismissed the video as fake (other sources confirm it is authentic), and denied that Ahmadinejad bases decisions on “heavenly affairs.” But this presidential obsession with the Mahdaviat [belief in the second coming] yields a certitude that leaves little room for compromise.» —“Waiting for the rapture in Iran” by Scott Peterson Christian Science Monitor (Boston, Mass.) Dec. 21, 2005.
