“Doctor Sahib! Towers in the village of New York in your country were attacked. Uzum mofsar (I am sorry)” said Faisal Baig

Two weeks before the attack on the Twin Towers in September 2001, Greg Mortenson was in north Pakistan,  building one more of the many primary schools for girls under the supervision of his Central Asia Institute, a foundation that Jean Hoerni financed and appointed Greg as director..

Greg started his mission in 1994 and was getting very familiar with the Karakoram and Hindu Kush regions, after his failed assault on K2 in 1993.

Greg, Apo and Hussein (the driver) were driving in the Shigar Valley near the town of Gulapor. This district was predominantly of Balti ethnics and of the Chiaa sect. And yet, they were observing a brand new huge and long edifice (200 meter-long and enclosed within a 6-meter wall).

Apo said: “This is a madrassa” (one of the hundreds of religious schools that the wahhabi Saudi Arabia absolute monarchy was investing billion to build in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt… Anywhere the Moslem Sunni sect was predominant, and also erecting mosques and hiring Wahhabi religious clerics to preach and run the mosques and religious schools…

Mortenson said: “Are you sure Apo that it is not a military base? You would expect these kind of schools to be mushrooming in the Waziristan region” (Where the Afghan Taliban had their bases and headquarters in western Pakistan)

Apo tried to explain that these religious schools are so large because thousands of poor male kids attend religious indoctrination: They are crowded as bees…

The most promising students are dispatched to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for further “education and formation” during 10 years and then sent back to teach, marry 4 wives, procreate and increase the number of wahhabis…

Mind you that after the Soviet troops withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, the USA totally forgot Afghanistan: The US administrations were busy handling the situation after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union States, particularly in eastern Europe, and the mass genocides that ensued in Yugoslavia…

For over a decade, the extremist and obscurantist Taliban (financed and supported by Saudi Arabia and Pakistan secret services) occupied Afghanistan, except the north-eastern province of the Panjshir and the Wakhan Corridor, under the Tajik warlord Massoud.

The El Qaeda of Ussama bin Laden was firmly entrenched in Afghanistan and in the western provinces of Pakistan, and enjoying the full support of Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader, a graduate from a “madrassa” in Pakistan.

In early September 2001, a new wahhabi mosque was finished in the center of the city of Skardu, the capital of the Balistan province in north-east Pakistan.

On Sept. 9, Mortenson was heading toward the town of Zuudkhan in north-west Pakistan in order to inaugurate 3 projects: A water purification, a small hydroelectric generator, and a dispensary.  The team spent the night at the village of Sost and he received the news that the Afghan Tajik warlord Ahmad Shah Massoud was assassinated by al Qaeda recruits. The executioners were two female Algerian jihadist who claimed to beBegian film makers. The instrument for the killing was a camera loaded with explosives.

Massoud was at the military base of Khvajeh Ba Odin, an hour flight by helicopter to Sost.

Ussama bin Laden figured out that if Massoud is eliminated and the Sept. 11 attack a success, then there will be no serious opponents in Afghanistan to support the US troops…

The people in the region were apprehensive and expected a soon Taliban attack and were looking toward the Afghan borders.

Two days later, 19 kamikazes, of mostly Saudi Arabia, launched their commercial line attacks on 4 targets on US soil.

This time around, the US remembered the plight of the Afghan people by launching 150 cruise missiles. Each cruise missile cost $900,000, enough to build hundred schools in Afghanistan and pay for the teachers for an entire year.

Mind you that a teacher cost $20 per month in Afghanistan at that time!

Note 1: In December 2000, the daily Ain al Yaqeen (Eye of Certainty) had disclosed that the foundation Al-Haramain, one of 4 such organizations for proselytizing the wahhabi sect, had constructed 1,100 mosques, madrassa, and Islamic centers, just in Pakistan and was paying the salary  of 3,000 instructors and employees.

In the same decade, the most active of these  4 organizations, The international Islamic Rescue Organization (IIRO) had built 1,800 mosques, and budgeted $45 million for the teaching of Islam, and hired 6,000 “educators”, and these money were mostly invested in Pakistan… The IIRO was directly funding and supporting Taliban and Al Qaeda

Note 2: The Pakistani journalist Ahmed Rashid of Lahore, and the most eminent specialist in extremist Moslem movements, estimated in “The Shadow of the Talibans” that about 80,000 students from various madrassas have joined Taliban, and that 20% of the students undergo military training for the Jihad purpose against the “infidels”

Note 3: The World Bank study in 2001 revealed that 20,000 madrassas were dispensing a fundamentalist Islamic program to 2 million Pakistani Students

How the Gods were created? (May 5, 2010)

            In India, oral transmission of the sacred texts or Books is considered far more reliable than transcribed Books such as the Vedas and later the Upanishads.  The vast masses of illiterates in India memorize the Vedas in songs chanted in groups.  It is the same process with Islam.  Illiterate Moslems and Moslems who cannot read and comprehend the Arabic slang of the tribe of Kuraich of Mecca that is used to write the Koran are made to memorize the verses since childhood in “madrassa”(Islamic schools for studying the Koran); memorization is enhanced by learning in rime chanting cadence.

            According to the Vedas, in the beginning, a vast chaos is vibrating with cosmic sounds. Then, the cosmic sounds or background noise transform into vowels that are attached to consonants.  Thus, words are created to compose the Vedas.  The Vedas have thus no author; they are the wordings of the universe, the unlimited depth of the universe.  As the Vedas started to be composed by authors through the various founding texts then Gods were created to explaining obscure interpretations.  In India religion, it is the written words that created Gods.  It is the same with the monolithic religions that say: “In the beginning was the Verb; and language was made God”.

            There is this funny story; in the 19th century, the State of Texas wanted to teach a few foreign languages.  One senator opposed vehemently the motion on the ground that “If English was good enough to Jesus then we have no need for other languages.” This ignorant Senator had no idea that Jesus spoke in Aramaic and that Jesus message was transcribed in Greek and also Aramaic before being translated into Latin. Papal Rome lost its grip on power in most of Europe once the sacred Books were translated from Latin to local languages such as German, English, and so forth.  The literate common people didn’t need the mediation of monks to read and interpret the written messages.  European Monarchs were thus emboldened to split with the Church of Rome and creating their own sects when politics diverged:  Monarchs could spread the falsehood that Jesus spoke the language of the land, as the Texas Senator believed.  It has been proven again and again that languages create their own Gods.

The created gods varied in location, responsibilities, and set of values.  A few civilization placed god within each mankind and thus, man had to respect the god/spirit and improve his behaviors in order to emulate God’s value system.  An extension of that notion is to placing god/spirit within either all animals, or vegetables or both.  Thus, vegetables, trees, and animals had to be spared and treated kindly.

A few other civilizations placed god among mankind and on earth.  Usually, this god was used to support clans and tribes defeating enemies.  This god was dusted off and cleansed during periods of wars and revenge.  This was the warrior god imported by Moses and his tribes.  Protestantism adopted that kind of god and pray for him in period of wars.

A few other civilizations placed god/spirit “outside” mankind existence  such as in the sky or heaven.  Christianity returned god to his “proper location” outside the turmoil of mankind and no other human entity could share this divinity.  Consequently, various Christian sects that created the concept of trinity (after Byzantium Emperor Constantin imposed this trinity around 325 AC to satisfying predominantly atheist religious structure) persecuted the Arius sect in Alexandria and later the Nestorian sect in Syria around 425 AC.  This war on the nature of Jesus Christ lasted over 1000 years.  Generally, the prevalent dogma in Alexandria (Egypt) were favored and adopted, simply because Egypt was the bread basket of the various Roman Empires and it was not worth bringing calamities on ridiculous abstract notions.  The persecuted Nestorian sect translated their bible to Chinese and established monasteries along the “Silk Road” before the advent of Islam.

As god was created by the written language so was Satan, Shaitan, Azazeel, or Osrael.  It was not conceivable that God behaves as mankind with two opposing sets of values.  Satan role was to get immersed in our every day decisions. Thus, Satan was to play the role of “devil’s advocate” in religion and for the power-to-be.  Otherwise, how could mankind develop without a reflexive mind of asking pertinent questions (and pay the price), even though he is unable to resolve them?

            Mankind is invited to exercise his individual responsibility for refection; mankind is to be set free and reclaims his human rights; mankind is to send to the waste bins archaic knowledge accumulated from sacred Books and to liberate his free-spirited potentials.
