Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other pilgrims perform a ritual in Mecca, Islam’s holiest site, during an August 2012 visit to Saudi Arabia. Like supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and most Shi’ites, Ahmadinejad adheres to the belief in the twelfth imam, who they believe will reappear at a time of global chaos.
