Ahmadinejad: Chávez Will Return

There’s always an encore. Fear not, those mourning the passing of Venezuelan autocrat Hugo Chávez. Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad posted a letter on his website, promising that the deceased president would “come again” with Jesus and a Muslim prophet expected to redeem mankind. Ahmadinejad called for a day of national mourning for the “Latin American anti-imperialist figure.” In the capital of Caracas, Chávez’s coffin was carried through the streets as 8,000 people gathered outside the hospital where he died and thousands more flooded the streets.
