Islam: Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur'an By Zahir Ebrahim

The Noble Path: Denying to Caesar what is not Caesar’s - Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur'an
California, United States of America
Sunday, July 31, 2011, Ramadan eve in the United States, Muslim year 1432 A.H.
There is evidently a great deal of confusion among the pious regarding Islam's pathway to Heaven. Mosques in the United States as in all Muslim countries are filled in Ramadan with worshippers seeking the spiritual blessings of the Night of a thousand nights of prayer. In their efforts at spiritual self-cleansing for a life that is not in a state of loss, most ignore the abysmal fact that tyranny is spreading faster than virtue, worldwide. Few dare to standup to it as readings of the Holy Qur'an resonate throughout Ramadan. The pulpits worldwide of both Sunnidom and Shiadom lead the flock in obsessing about ritual worship. What does the Holy Qur'an have to say about the life that is not in a state of loss?
Reproduced here is the full recipe of the pithy Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur'an for a noble life which is “not in a state of loss”.
Notice what's stated and what's omitted in this self-sufficient tiny Surah which evidently requires reflection in inverse proportion to its length.
There is no reference to Muslims, or to Islam, or to any particular people or religion.
The Surah is directly addressed to man, “insaan” ( الۡاِنۡسَانَ ), to every people of all religions, and to people of no religion (the overarching pluralistic context for peoples of different faiths has previously been established in the article: Islam and Knowledge vs. Socialization).
Islam: The AND Logic of Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur’an
Caption Islam: The AND Logic of Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur’an, Chapter 103* (Engineering representation of the semantic logic of Surah Al-Asr; author's conception)
By the declining day, (1)
Lo! man is in a state of loss (2)
اِنَّ الۡاِنۡسَانَ لَفِىۡ خُسۡرٍۙ‏
Save those who believe,
and do good works,
and strive for “haq”,
and are patient** (103:3)
اِلَّا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا
وَ عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ
وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ
ۙ وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالصَّبۡرِ
Caption Full text of Surah Al-Asr, Chapter 103 of the Holy Qur'an
The logic of the verses 2-3 is the AND conjunctive clause. Meaning, a concatenation of conditions joined by the AND clause (Arabic وَ ). Every one of the listed conditions in such a statement has to be individually true in order for the overall statement to be true. Otherwise the statement is false.

What or when “This day” was, or what was the significance of events transpiring on “This day” that caused this verse to be revealed and inserted in what appears to be a random place, as a verse fragment of 5:3, is not stated in the Holy Qur'an. Indeed, many verses of great import are similarly contextless, or both open-ended as well as contextless, and therefore perennially ripe for self-interpretation. This makes possible a multiplicity of 'kosher' misinterpretations of the religion of Islam by the learned scholars imparting any meaning to the open-ended and contextless verses that suit their mental genius or their self-interest, interpreting individual verses in isolation to suit their socialized predisposition, but without altering the syntactic and overt structural composition of the text of the Holy Qur'an. This book, Hijacking The Holy Qur'an And Its Religion Islam, illustrates how much of the plurality of interpretations is in fact enabled by the Holy Qur'an itself – by design!

Being a techie engineer, I have depicted this AND conjunction in electrical engineering parlance in the top figure using a simple electronic device called the AND Gate. One can purchase it for a few cents at Radio Shack. The logic device is made out of a few transistors and implements this AND conjunctive clause function.
The 4-input AND Gate in the diagram captures the logic of Surah Al-Asr verses 2:3 with exact precision. Those more inclined to be “Left-brained” (logic, math, and problem-solving dominated) than “Right-brained” (art, creativity, and language dominated) can perhaps appreciate the import of Surah Al-Asr better in this representation.
Imagine that an LED is attached to the pin labeled Output (metaphor for a man's life).
  • It glows green (to indicate a life which is not at a loss) only if all four inputs of the AND Gate labeled I1, I2, I3, and I4 are TRUE (represented by a “one” in the truth table). Observe that there is only a single statement in the truth table when the LED is ever green.
  • It glows red (to indicate a life which is at a loss) if one or more input is FALSE (represented by the corresponding “zero” in the truth table). Observe that there are fifteen statements in the truth table representing all the remaining permutations for which the LED is red!! The obvious first statement of all zero inputs clearly captures the vile hectoring hegemons of the planet and is of no surprise to anyone. But the remaining fourteen can indeed be very surprising.
  • it doesn't matter how many prayers one offered and how many Hajj one performed to “believe” ( اٰمَنُوۡا );
  • or how many hungry mouths one fed, how many hospitals and schools one built, and how honestly one earned one's income and paid one's zakat to do “good works” ( عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ ) ;
  • if one didn't strive to oppose falsehoods and uphold “haq” ( حَقّ ), the life, even if otherwise piously and well-lived, is still one of “loss” ( خُسۡرٍۙ ).
I am not making this up. That's what the Holy Qur'an itself states, unequivocally – reflect on it yourself while further recalling the admonishment of the Author of the Book of Reflection:
'That this is indeed a Qur'an Most Honourable, In a Book well-guarded, Which none shall touch but those who are clean: A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem?' Holy Qur'an, Surah Al-Waqia, 56:77-81
Witness that the hardest thing to do in modern life is to stand up to oppression and tyranny ( وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ ). And also to persevere in adversity when one is experiencing the jackboots of the new Nazis upon one's neck ( ۙوَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالصَّبۡرِ ).
Whereas the easiest thing to do is to sit in a mosque, and/or to feed the hungry in atonement of a guilty conscience.
We already see what the pious Muslims worldwide tend to excel in. We pay our zakat, khums, fitra (religiously mandated donations) on time, pray our namaz on time, and keep our fasts on time. Aspire to go for Hajj at least once, while the privileged take great pride in performing it repeatedly. Many among the oppressed are also incredibly patient in affliction. Indeed, we are so patient that we oft proclaim “Allah chala raha hai” (God is running the world), “Allah malik hai” (God is our provider), and often cry ourselves to sleep with utmost sabr (patience in the sense of resignation to fate), repeating to ourselves with quivering lips and glistening eyes: “hasbun allahu wa naimal wakeel” (Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the Protector, Arabic: حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ Holy Qur'an, Surah Al-e-Imran 3:173).
According to the testimony of Surah Al-Asr, take it any which you want, the fact remains that most of us are still in خُسۡرٍۙ unless we stand up to oppression and unequivocally affirm حَقّ with some measure of constancy to the best of our individual capacity. While it is true that only Allah can be the fair judge of that capacity and to what measure each individual is at a loss and not at a loss, silence and acquiescence to tyranny are the obvious antithesis of ( وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ ). And that, lamentably, seems to be the modus vivendi of the majority of Muslims today.
The crafting of that antithesis, evidently, has also come about courtesy of the imperial scholars subverting the meaning of the religion of Islam in the service of tyrants and kings throughout the ages, modernity being no exception. Language being the first target of corruption.
Thus, وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ has been reduced to some nonsensical gibberish by the pious turbaned man on the pulpit to mean: just talk about justice حَقّ with utmost earnestness while occupying oneself in the mosque believing اٰمَنُوۡا and in doing good deeds عَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰت ! The exposition of وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ from the pulpit and among the masses never includes standing up to kings, rulers, governments, and to their usurpation, oppression, injustices, and “imperial mobilizations” writ large in the blood of the masses.
The ullema (plural for the Muslim man on the pulpit) today, as yesterday, selectively focus people's attention with verses from the Holy Qur'an that exhort people to good works and belief promising a pleasing Hereafter (e.g. Surah Al Baqara 2:25), to mask their crafty omissions in the service of empire.
Keeping the masses occupied in rituals and salvation, and “rendering unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s,” is not merely a Biblical saying (Matthew 22:21). That semantics has existed from time immemorial. Its biggest harbingers have always been the man on the pulpit.
Witness the 600-page one-sided Fatwa on Terrorism by the vaunted “scholar of Islam”, the posterboy of “moderate Islam” who issued a jurist's proclamation (Fatwa) against the terrorism of the pirates (see ) but not the emperor's. For services rendered to empire, the house nigger (see Faq: What is a house nigger) soon found a place-setting at the massa's table. As previously examined in Islam vs. Secular Humanism and World Government (, the religion of Islam was hijacked from its very early days to service “empire” - Muslims' own. Nothing has principally changed today except for the color of the imperial flag.
Liberating the meaning of the religion of Islam, the Deen-ul-Haq (religion of حَقّ ) from the clutches of the so called scholars and jurists among Muslims is only as difficult as the uncongeniality of pondering the message of the Holy Qur'an directly, with one's own head and commonsense, rather than merely mouthing its melodic and soothing verses which no doubt are magic to the soul.
To strive for “haq” ( وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالۡحَقِّ ) against anyone's tyranny requires no man's sanction – when Allah Itself has sanctioned it for every man and woman ( اِنۡسَانَ ) in creation.
That is the momentous import of Surah Al-Asr – that tiniest Surah of the Holy Qur'an comprising a mere 27 words (as counted for the English translation used here). Its utility as a rallying call for denying to Caesar what is not Caesar’s, for affirming to God what is God's, and to man what is man's, remains unsurpassed.
But, at the end of the day, only Allah is also the final Judge of the extent to which we each did our own due diligence to Allah's guidance given our individual trials and tribulations, and our individual bounties and blessings, on all four criterion for a life which only Allah shall Deem as “not in a state of loss”!
The holy month of Ramadan, a joyous month of fasting and reflection, commences tomorrow (or the day after) worldwide for 1.6 billion Muslims. Perhaps while rushing to “finish” the recitation of the Holy Qur'an in this month for nourishing the starved soul, the hunger in the stomach from not eating all day will be matched with a hunger in the intellect from not thinking at all.
Ramadan Mubarik.

* For those “Left-brained” readers with a precision oriented engineering bent of mind, there is an implicit A/D convertor at each of the four inputs in the figure above to characterize the threshold of conversion from a “zero” to a “one” for every individual. This is consistent with the Accountability Equation of the religion of Islam for every individual: Output / Input, wherein, the Output is the individual's voluntary behavior, choice of acts, performance, thoughts, beliefs; and Input is the individual's involuntary assets and liabilities, more specifically: inheritance, DNA, innate abilities and limitations, psychological bent of mind, involuntary nurturing and opportunities or lack thereof due to the general lot in life, and life's trials and tribulations upon which the individual exercised little or no control. The calculus of Output / Input is merely the verse fragment of Surah Al-Baqara 2:286: “On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns.” expressed mathematically. Thus, for the purpose of individual Accountability in reference to Surah Al-Asr, in order to be fair and just to every individual given their respective limiting or extenuating circumstances, the measurement of individual Accountability is sensibly not Absolute Output, but Relative Output / Input, whereby the threshold of a “one” or “zero”, i.e., threshold of pass or fail on every criterion, in this abstraction is also set individually for every human being. And according to the religion of Islam, only God has the perfect knowledge to determine this threshold for every human being. This also automatically implies not to judge others, of who is “pass” and who is “fail”. That determination is exclusively the Right of Allah, Haquq-Allah, in the religion of Islam! See the travesty done to minorities among Muslims for political reasons by encroaching upon this Haquq-Allah, as for instance: What Role did Shias Play in Condemning Qadianis to Kafirdom in Cahoots with Sunni Scholars in 1974? (
** وَتَوَاصَوۡا بِالصَّبۡرِ To strive with perseverance, constancy, steadfastness – and not passivity or self-defeatist resignation to fate. The word “sabr” is often misused, at times deliberately, to incapacitate strident action in the face of adversity. Once again, linguistic hijacking permits subversion of the mind and consequently controlling of mass behavior. The popular meaning of the word “sabr” in the Muslim public mind has been transformed into what is perhaps most closely akin to the Hindu Karma --- it is just one's lot in life to be born under oppression, so grin and bear it for in the next life one will surely be compensated for the full resignation to fate in this one! No devil could have incapacitated human endeavor to strive to better their condition more than this hijacking of semantics.

What does the Holy Qur'an say about Haq - Truth and Justice? By Zahir Ebrahim

Toronto Hearings: A strange cast of characters among 9/11 Truth Leadership


9/11 Toronto Hearings: Long-awaited International Hearings Set for September, 2011

Video titled: 911 - Parallels - Steven Jones sabotaged the 911 truth, as he did with Cold Fusion
Caption Professor Steven Jones of BYU (standing second from left) officially appointed in 1989 by the President of the United States, George H.W. Bush Sr., as an establishmentarian scientist to lead the DOE investigation into the potentially revolutionizing discovery of Cold Fusion. Can a George Bush Sr.’s trusted establishmentarian scientist suddenly become a genuine dissenting scientist against the same establishment in George Bush Jr.’s administration as anything other than controlled opposition? Steven Jones immediately rises to become the most prominent leader of 9/11 Truth seekers who even want to award him the Nobel Peace Prize! Hmmm.... watch the video above and click on the image of Steven Jones with Bush Sr. to read more about his previous role in Cold Fusion. We learn from history – or is that merely a cliché to use ex post facto in pedantic papers and history books? (Click on image for more context on Steven Jones' role in 9-11)

David Ray Griffin on global government
Caption David Ray Griffin, the author of many famous books on 9/11 and the 'Dean of 9/11 Studies' according to many of his prominent cheerleaders who claim inspiration from him, is a self-admitted globalist seeking world government in the most eloquent Newspeak of Orwellian Establishmentarians. Hmmm.... watch David Ray Griffin proclaim world government in response to an audience question in the video above (Click on image for more context)

Vanilla or Chocolate is merely the icing on the devil's cake!
Caption Vanilla or Chocolate is merely the icing on the devil's cake! Is the brilliant Western intellect really so naive that it cannot see that they all principally serve the same globalist agenda? Click on image
Is this ten year old pursuit of what was already obvious on September 11, 2001, “Operation Canned Goods” look-alike, really relevant to derailing “imperial mobilization” to one-world government which was irrevocably launched by that super terrorism of 9/11? Read what was already obvious on day one.
Even the Financial Times has argued that 9/11 finally enabled one-world government: 'for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible. ... it is increasingly clear that the most difficult issues facing national governments are international in nature: there is global warming, a global financial crisis and a “global war on terror”'! Read Gideon Rachman's 'And now for a world government'.
Hear the bold proclamation on global governance by the EU president: “2009 is also the first year of global governance.... The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet.”

The only people who are evidently unaware of these real-world developments, are the 9/11 Truth Movement born-again zealots – or, at least, they seem to behave that way when Pollyannaishly broaching their “new investigation” treadmill.
I haven't paid much attention to the 9/11 Truth Movement people because I have found them patently silly in their prime demand: new investigation. By who? Of what? There is no crime scene hard evidence preserved. And when the judge, jury, executioner, sherif, and posse, all work for the same club, the club of "imperial mobilization", what sense does new investigation make? The only sense of a red herring to keep more peoples occupied in specious pursuits, and administering some additional Hegelian mind-fck towards eroding national sovereignty by internationalizing the investigation, perhaps under the auspices of the vaunted UN, as baby-step towards accomplishing more world government. Now local crimes are investigated by a global body – a justification solidified, since none of the national authorities are deemed capable of it for one reason or another! After my brief communication with the 9/11 Truth movement cheerleaders and scientists, I had given up on anything useful coming out of this lot except hard runs on the treadmills of inefficacy. And they are at it again.
What's the point of the following stated agenda of the Toronto Hearings when all Western governments and international agencies are conniving to usher in world government which was enabled by 9/11: '(3) To submit a record and a summary of the Hearings, together with signed Statutory Declarations by witnesses, to relevant governments, groups and international agencies with the request that a full and impartial investigation be launched into the events of September 11, 2001'?
What is this farce of presenting the obvious by the learned foxes in hen's feathers to other foxes all pretending to guard the hen house amidst the cheering hens?
Only the sharp Western intellect can think of such absurdities and be taken seriously by useful idiots! For others, please click to read: The Poor-Man's Guide to Modernity.
Please see the full deconstruction of why I no longer trust Steven Jones and his coterie of Johnny come lately “experts” who have instantly acquired a following as if they were “collection agents” – and what have they been collecting?
I would suggest that they have been shepherding the well-intentioned conscionable peoples, citizens, anonymous good hearted folks, who were and are waking up ex post facto of Iraq invasion of 2003, lest the sheep wakeup too violently! Just get them to speciously demand a “new investigation”!
I wonder what these brilliant scholars and scientists and theologians where doing in September-October of 2001 when Afghanistan was being prepared to be bombed to smithereens? And in 2002-2003 when Iraq was being prepared to be “shock and awe[d]”? But suddenly, in 2004, these “experts” began to burst onto the public scene to become leaders of other ordinary mortals not endowed with brilliant titles like these scholars and scientists, who were also waking up slowly to the commonsense reality that no WMDs were found in Iraq? That steel buildings couldn't just collapse like that? It took David Griffin to write the New Pearl Harbor three years after 9/11 when a simple attendance at any anti-war teach-in during 2001-2003 protest demonstrations would have informed anyone principled enough to oppose the slaughter of innocent 'lesser peoples' of that fact?
Imagine that Richard Gage advertised on his website, by implication of comparing Steven Jones to Linus Pauling, that a Nobel Peace Prize might be in it for the new comer: “Steven Jones' call for a "serious investigation" of the hypothesis that the WTC 7 and the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fire, but through the use of pre-positioned cutter-charges" must be the rallying cry for all building design experts to speak out. Dr. Jones is following in the footsteps of Dr. Linus Pauling of the California Institute of Technology, who rallied his fellow scientists to oppose the development of the Hydrogen Bomb and the testing of nuclear weapons. He was later awarded the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize for these efforts.”
The same Dr. Jones who is pictured with George H. W. Bush Sr., above, being appointed by the heralder of the “New World Order” to scuttle the discovery of Cold Fusion? No – must be some other fellow.
But still, Nobel Peace Prize for what?
  • For co-opted fools and mercenaries without conscience suffering from the superiority complex of silently watching the spectacle of genocidal slaughter of the 'untermenschen' on their telly and not uttering a public word of protest while Afghanistan and Iraq were decimated with “shock and awe”?
  • Or, for being further set-up as glorified “collection agents” for type-2 ordinary citizens; to attract those ordinary peoples who are finally waking up to the reality that 9/11 was an “Operations Canned Goods” as they lose their own skirts and shirts while their own nation descends into a police state? No they didn't protest when it was happening to that other fellow over there, but Machiavelli knows that they will protest when it starts happening to them right here at home. He is ready!
See this report to understand “type-2” and the political science of manufacturing dissent as an integral part of social engineering of consent. “Type-2” is Adolph Hitler's categorizing of people who “wake up”, who were formerly “type-1”, the flag-waiving and/or silent bystanders of mainstream with their full faith in their government. They suddenly “wake up” with lost faith in government. Virtually the entire majority of “9/11 Truth Movement” rank and file appear to be mainstream waked-up citizens whose newly awakened conscience and skepticism is being corralled into expending their energies on specious pursuits of what is already a fait accompli. All “type-2”.
These good and noble citizens of empire, benefiting from its loot and plunder of the rest of the world – ahem, the hidden hand of the market backed by the hidden fist, as Thomas Freidman put it in the NYT – in what became known as the 'American Dream' (see Unveiling America's Secret History), can no more think independently without a pied piper leading them as the new dissentstream, than they could as the silent majority of mainstream. In either case they must be led. They look to “experts”. So “experts” are provided to them. And led they are, to the same pastures of ensuring that fait accompli of “imperial mobilization” is not impacted by their loss in faith in government. Read the aforementioned report to perceptively understand this straightforward mechanism of predatory statecraft in Western “democracies”.
And read this analysis to acutely comprehend the concept of fait accompli and the role of absurdities in political science. Unless you can insightfully understand that, and shrewdly begin to identify and eschew your fabricated leaders who are now your new pied-pipers, you will never comprehend how you are being taken for a ride no differently than when you were part of the flag-waiving mainstream! And it doesn't matter how many credentials you have, or what your station in life is. These matters are not decided by socio-economic, race, or class status, but by indoctrination and ability to think independently. Both of which are entirely wealth and college degrees agnostic.
For today's dissent-chiefs: It doesn't matter if you have a Ph.D. from MIT or Caltech – the Nazi Scientists, hard and soft, meaning, from physicists to social-psychologists, were far more brilliant than many coveting the Nobel prize in Physics in America today. And they stood United with their Führer too, at the peak of the Third Reich's hubris. Then they came over to America as defeated brilliance, often under new identities – “Operation Paperclip” – to run your science in America, blithely stating, and believing, as is famously quoted from the father of the rocket who ended up heading NASA to send America to the moon: “our job is to send it up, what does it matter where it comes down.”
If you didn't speak-out then, didn't protest then, didn't put your jobs and your life on the line in orchestrating nation-wide protests of the kind witnessed during the tail-end of the Vietnam War when your own peoples' body-bags were in ample display – a lesson many of you learnt while still in college during that most recent yesteryear – and you are suddenly prominent dissent-leaders today having silently watched tens of thousands of innocent 'lesser' civilians not even get a used body-bag, never mind a Muslim burial in DU soaked lands, I have to wonder about this sham.
It can only succeed in brain-washed, or perhaps brain-dead America!
The compromising image above, and the admission of being a globalist pitching the very message that David Rockefeller, the Council on Foreign Relations, the EU president, et. al., have been pitching loudly and publicly, indeed since the very founding of the Federal Reserve Bank that generations of bankster oligarchy has been pitching, condemn you as the vile assets of the Mighty Wurlitzer in the service of empire.
You only fool type-2, your primary mission.
Sorry – no brownie points for the silly Toronto Hearings. If you are genuine, you must prove it.
There is no reason for anyone to assume anything of anyone in an age when “deception is the state of mind and the mind of State”.
Convincingly answer the questions raised here by one whose 'lesser peoples' and civilizations have been bombed by your very first silence – and by the hubris of your elected representatives who “United We Stand” with their purse-strings right alongside your government which you install and replace every four years without a damn change occurring while you continually believe like damn fools that you are getting a change while the winner earns the 2008 Marketer of the Year award – before you head off to fool many more men and women of conscience on this Toronto journey. Stop fooling yourselves first, if indeed that's what this is and not controlled dissent to run the fed-up public on glamorized treadmills for a healthy democratic exercise of the conscience.
Why should damn fool “leaders” be welcomed by ordinary peoples? Damn fools who are asking the same ruling powers to investigate a fait accompli – like asking the robber to investigate his own crime, and the judge is the robber's father, the jury are his fraternity all having benefited from their brother's crime, and the other rulers being appealed to are part of the same Mafioso pact?
Of course, I hope I am wrong. That damn fools will turn out to be wise savants! So show me the effective and practical path to derailing “imperial mobilization” from your silly obsession with unraveling the mysteries of “Operation Canned Goods” and I will be converted to your religion.
Just Look at the absurdity of this obsession in the larger global context:
  • the invasion of Poland is a fait accompli;
  • the slaughters of the 'lesser peoples' are continuing on both the Eastern and the Western front; France and Western Europe is militarily occupied;
  • the Allied fire-bombings of occupied cities and Germany is at its peak killing more innocent civilians in the most atrocious manner than those killed by the Nazis in their hideous concentration camps;
  • Nuremberg is a distant memory;
  • the next nations to fall to “democracy” and “revolutions” in prelude to invasion and occupation, are along the rapidly expanding “arc of crisis” in the “global zone of percolating violence” and already visible;
and some brilliant scholars are discussing the how-tos of “Operation Canned Goods”?
An even greater absurdity is that these wise savants are making appeals to the Reich's henchmen installed all across the world for a “new investigation” of “Operation Canned Goods”?
And the greatest absurdity of it all is that they don't see that “Operation Canned Good” enabled the world government of Mein Führer's long-held dream, and all rulers in the dominion are now his lieutenants?
Those absurdities can only happen in two places in all of creation:
  • One, in Alice in Wonderland – the creation of the fertile imagination of an allegorical novelist for school children's reading pleasure and adult contemplation.
  • Two, in a nation so dumbed-down that they can no longer even use an iota of commonsense to rationally add two plus two to come up with four – the creation of the diabolical imagination of Machiavelli and its social engineers to ensure that the self-inflated with superiority-complex public continually look only towards designated “experts” for the answer to even simple arithmetic, to be happy when they invariably get “five”, and run helter-skelter with their new discovery!
Yah – I am in the presence of greatness singing “Hallelujah” and “Hava Nagila” to the white man's burden – give them all a Nobel Peace Prize. The prize given to the greatest mass murderers and henchmen in history!

Toronto Hearings: A strange cast of characters among 9/11 Truth Leadership By Zahir Ebrahim
