Default An extremely important prayer.

I want to raise a prayer for the unity of all faithful brothers; at least to the believers who consider themselves faithful.
We should not forget that the deeds of the first and second generation Daheshist brothers and sisters who were great in the eyes of God. They stayed up day night, tasting all kinds of bitter persecution, for the sake of us to be happy and experience the highest degrees moral comfort.
Lets pray so that God may grant them comfort. Lets pray and ask God to forgive us if we abused and offended them in any way or form.
For the goal of evil spiritual fluids is dismantling. But the Daheshist message is as firm as the prevailing mountains.
Lets remember that many of our spiritual fluids may be linked to them in any time.
Their words link us to each other and to them. Its a great sin if we deny their virtue. We should be with them by prayer and good deeds, so that God may accept our spiritual offering.
We are all sinners, and as saint Paul once said: Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.(Philipians 3:13)
Again lets remember with pure hearts. For the world rejected them, they weren't worthy of being on Earth. What a shame! for who are we to accept or deny them, if God accepted them?
And let the seeds of love, mercy, and compassion be our guiding light, and be present in our actions with each other. Amen
May God accept my prayer, and that it may be read and applied worldwide.
And that Daheshville be an anchor of words for many lost souls. Amen.

We want to pray today for all poor people, for refugees who are victims of all kinds of terrorism.

We want to pray for the thirsty souls for the truth so that they may receive the appropriate spiritual guidance.

We want to pray for the fulfillment of the heavenly words of our guiding beloved prophet so that it will be applied each second in our daily life, so that it shines through us, and, through every true willing soul to apply it.

We want to raise a prayer against all types of bully-ism; for bully-ism is a crime, weather mental-psychological or physical.

We want to ask God almighty for MERCY, the world needs it, we need it.

May God bless you all the time.

Default A take on the Terrorism at Nice

I will not go into the grisly details of the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France as I am sure everyone already knows them. It was simply the latest in a now all-too-long list of attacks by Muslim terrorists, some fanatics, some hypocrites who simply wish to attach themselves to a cause, against western countries and France has certainly been a prominent target. In fact, France was still in a state of emergency from the last such terrorist attack. This one, however, happened on Bastille Day, the national holiday held on the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, traditionally the event used to mark the start of the French Revolution. In a way, such an attack on Bastille Day was disgustingly appropriate. The French Revolution, the damage that it did and the mentality that it caused to take root in France, is directly responsible for the current state of affairs which made such an attack possible. Will the French ever truly come to grips with this? It seems doubtful, certainly the response by French leaders has been no different and showed no greater urgency than after previous attacks, and so the body count of innocent victims will continue to rise while people cling desperately to their delusions. And that is what this is, make no mistake about it.

The motto of the French Revolution and, subsequently the French republics, is "Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood". There is a delusional start for you right there. Liberty is a rather subjective term, equality is an impossibility and if you are determined to try to make equality possible, you make liberty impossible. As for brotherhood, that may have been fine when considering only the French alone but, of course, the revolutionaries never intended it that way and France has been paying the price ever since. The idea of spreading the revolution to France's European "brothers" led to years of disastrous wars that resulted in France being weakened and the Germans being united. Today the mentality has widened to include people from all around the world; Algeria, Tunisia, Senegal and so on. However, even when such people are brought to France, taught French history, had the values of the Revolution pounded into them, even if they are born and raised in France, it does no good when they have another "brotherhood", one of race or religion that runs far deeper than a liberal civics examination. Any Frenchman worth his snails would look at any of these recent attackers, even those born in his country and say, 'I like the word "Fraternity" but still I draw the line / He may be a brother of Francois Hollande but he ain't no brother of mine'.


No, for France to triumph over this crisis, not simply the terrorist attacks which are a symptom of a deeper problem, all the idealistic, ideological nonsense of the French Revolution has to be kicked to the curb in favor of a revival of that older France, that nobler France that the Jacobins worked so hard to eradicate. The terrorists like to refer to the western powers as "Crusaders", which, of course, no western country today is at all but they damn well should be and no one was more prominent in the era of the Crusades than the Kingdom of France. France needs to forget this "fraternity" nonsense and remember the likes of Charles Martel or St Joan of Arc and how they dealt with invaders. If you want crusaders, France has had plenty, there was hardly a crusade in which the French didn't play a major part. The Kingdom of France was officially and proudly Catholic. That did not, as most know, prevent France having good relations and even alliances with Islamic countries or those of other religions, but it was always perfectly clear that France was a Christian nation and expected to remain so. "One king, one law, one faith" as the ill-fated Louis XVI put it.

That France, the France that restored Christianity in the near east, that explored the interior of North America, that frustrated the combined armies of Europe and built the Palace at Versailles, that France would have no problem dealing with this current crisis, because it had all the tools with which to do so. It had a will to survive, ambition to do great things, loyalty to a single leader and the faith of the "Eldest Daughter of the Church". When the France of today, revives and restores the values of that France, the current crisis can be swept away.

France has over 5 million Muslims. Many Muslims died in the Nice attack. It was a Muslim who saved the lives of the Jews in the Kosher Supermarket attack.

That criminal behind the Nice attack was a depraved, and unstable person who was quickly radicalized. In another time or place, he could have been a "Christian Terrorist":The Srebrenica massacre, also known as the Srebrenica genocide was the genocidal killing, in July 1995, of more than 8,000 Muslim Bosniaks, mainly men and boys.

As for the French Revolution, you're forgetting that the monarchy did return. And you certainly have forgotten to mention Napoleon. And speaking of "Empires," how about we, Americans, bow our heads in shame at the crimes committed in the name of defending our "freedom."

How about we realize that the illegal war we began in Iraq, where we summarily (because we've got this colonization business down to an art!) disassembled the Iraqi army, and left thousands of men without a way to earn a living, gave rise to the problem, which the French have now inherited.

And speaking of leaving thousands of Iraqi soldiers without a way to earn a living and robbing them of their dignity, one of my favorite lines from "Law and Order, Criminal Intent" was delivered by detective Goren in the episode called "Gone" (Season 4-Episone 11):

"See, that's what happens when you keep people from doing what they do best. It makes them insane."

Default Bravo Mario

Bravo Mario...for your comments regarding the "Mad Monarchist" article on the French Revolution. You speak from true conviction.
Of course, we also may remember that after another bloody & horrible revolution against King George III with victory in driving out the Brits....It was George Washington that became president and brought the Colonies together...
as he stepped down....the Founding Fathers begged him to become King, for life...he declined!
The Founding Fathers saw the need for a restored Monarchy.

What followed is a most divisive and often times immoral self rule, that we call (erroneously) Democracy....with all of the attendent failures that America brought forth to the world....and so it continues, this very day!

respectfully, Observer

Why, thank you, Observer Jules!

The thing is, I'm not advocating any particular mode of government.

What I am, however, after is the human-rights element of the equation: If you read Doctor Dahesh's "Words," the theme of liberty jumps out at you.

I am thousands of literal miles away (no pun intended) from my bookshelf, so I can't grab it and translate some of its passages for you. Nevertheless, I'll give you gist of the impression I was left with after having read it:

Let's say I'm ruled by a king, or any type of ruler, and that ruler is a tyrant (i.e., jails people without due process, revokes freedom of expression, the usual...) In that case, my solemn duty—being that freedom is a right, a gift from God, and not a privilege— would to rise and fight that ruler until he or she is no longer in power.

What I can't (absolutely, categorically) do is wait until that ruler is removed from power to speak out, and criticize him or her.

So, the concept of mounting a revolution is intrinsic to Daheshism. However, it's how you go about waging that battle, as it were, that makes the difference being honorable or not. Again, this is my own understanding based on (both) what I read, and my personal contact with the Doctor.

Basically, you have to be the conduit that allows Divine Justice to take over, it that makes any sense...

I have to confess that I'm slightly disconcerted with the framing here. Long story short, it seems like an endorsement of the worst notions of feudal kingship. Feudal kingship is very much out of step with ancient kingship, which oddly enough for our post-modern minds to conceive was in dyad with what folks in the know would call a 'republic' or 'commonwealth'. No kingship is legitimate without that dyad because no Jubilee Year to gather and kick a non-performing king off the throne!

Yes, in the ancient world kings were often elected, through acclamation. There is such a scene in the Quran by the way where all souls are gathered before Allah and Allah asks us all "Am I not your Lord?"
But French monarchy was about as ungodly as one can get.
Mind you, I'm not apologizing for the excesses of the French Revolution. I don't think we can lay those excesses at the feet of the French Enlightenment itself. (and I'm speaking as one who is much more favourably inclined toward the Scottish Enlightenment!).
