Download or read book Conspiracies and Atrocities in Afghanistan PDF or another Format written by Engineer Fazel Ahmed Afghan, MSc and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2015-06-12 with total page 780 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Afghanistan is the victim of conspiracies. History tells us about happenings and events of the past. Life would be empty in the absence of history. Therefore, the author—intrinsically motivated to understand his roots, his motherland, and the cause for the backwardness and suffering of Afghanistan—decided to take this adventurous journey and complete this three-hundred-year history in thirty years and share them with all those interested about Afghanistan issues. In the course of thirty years, the author had gone through very rough, bumpy, and sometimes painful routes, making him cry, especially feeling in his heart the pain and fear of not reaching the destiny. In spite of all his difficulties, he has dug out a lot of painful documents from very reliable sources and compiled them in this book titled Conspiracies and Atrocities in Afghanistan: 1700–2014. Thereby, the author of this book has endeavored to present the link between various eras and major historic events inside Afghanistan with the purpose of exposing the facts about the Afghan and foreign conspiracies and atrocities which, as a result, caused the backwardness of this nation. Afghanistan has suffered immensely through the course of this three-hundred-year journey and especially in the last thirty-six years. The author leaves the judgement to the respected readers.
Download or read book The Bishop, the Mullah, and the Smartphone PDF or another Format written by Bryan Winters and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2015-05-01 with total page 318 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Not so long ago the world resisted change, often using religious-reasoning. Small wonder--the printing press, a sixteenth century disruptive device, split Christianity. Now the globe welcomes digital disruption, even praising it as a solution for faltering economies. Religions don't have much choice but to follow, because information is a prime asset of faith. Believers treasure and reframe their past, and present. However, both old and current data is now available in huge quantities, visually and instantly. Movies provide more spiritual guidance than holy texts, and terror merchants use the uncontrollable Internet to gain hearts and minds. Nevertheless a turbulent re-mythologization of adherents towards peaceful versions of their belief can be tracked. There are positive things we can all do to help, which is just as well in a world that suggests only political acts count.

Download or read book Biblical Mullahs PDF or another Format written by and published by Abu Hurairah Mythmaker Publications. This book was released on 2014-09-16 with total page 199 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The theme of this book is that the Muslims are embroiled in insanity because they do not obey the literal Koran. The Muslims are far removed from their own Koran. This book will show that there is not one thing the Muslim does everyday in the name of his religion which can be traced back to the Koran. The Muslims have become raving mobs and gargantuan failures in life because they have abandoned the Koran. And in the process the Muslims have also become rejectors. In Arabic the word for ‘rejector’ is ‘kafir’ i.e. one who opposes. The vast majority of Muslims are actually outside the pale of Islam.

Download or read book Global Jihad and America PDF or another Format written by Taj Hashmi and published by SAGE Publishing India. This book was released on 2014-06-26 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Global Jihad and America questions the assumption if Islamist terrorism, or “Global Jihad,” poses the biggest threat to modern civilization in the East and West. It explores if Islamic and Western civilizations, being “incompatible” to each other, are destined to be at loggerheads. Consequently, the book argues that state-sponsored terrorism and proxy wars—not terrorist acts by “non-state actors”—will pose the biggest security threat to the world. This study does not suggest that the world has already reached the cul-de-sac of its destiny with no point of return. Both America and the Muslim World can play important roles to avert the catastrophe. Meanwhile, the gap between the needy and the rich and powerful is widening. Throughout history, sections of the rich and powerful have manipulated wars in the name of peace and justice, religion and freedom. So the big question now is: with America and its allies waging a “war on terror and extremism” and their Muslim adversaries defending honor and religion, is a disaster looming?

Download or read book Empire and Tribe in the Afghan Frontier Region PDF or another Format written by Hugh Beattie and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2019-09-19 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Waziristan, a region on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, has in recent years become a flash point in the so-called 'War on Terror'. Hugh Beattie looks at the history of this region, examining British attempts to manage the tribes from 1849 until Pakistan's declaration of independence in 1947. He explores British attempts to divide the frontier region into separate British and Afghan spheres of influence. In the minds of British policymakers, this demarcation would secure the position of the Empire, and so Beattie highlights the various policy initiatives towards the frontier region over the period in question. Crucially, he analyses how the British perceived the local tribes, what constituted authority within tribal frameworks, and the military and political ramifications of these perceptions. As he also explores the contemporary relevance of this region, taking into account the resurgence of the Taliban in Waziristan, Beattie's analysis is vital for those interested in the history and security implications of the Afghan frontier with Pakistan.
Download or read book Eminent Persians PDF or another Format written by Abbas Milani and published by Syracuse University Press. This book was released on 2008-12-19 with total page 1246 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the 25th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution approached, Abbas Milani realized that very little, if any, attention had been given to the entire prerevolutionary generation. Political upheavals and a tradition of neglecting the history of past regimes have resulted in a cultural memory loss, erasing the contributions of a generation of individuals. Eminent Persians seeks to rectify that loss. Milani’s groundbreaking portrait of modern Iran reveals the country’s rich history through the lives of the men and women who forged it. Consisting of 150 profiles of the most important innovators in Iran between World War II and the Islamic Revolution, the book includes politicians, entrepreneurs, poets, artists, and thinkers who brought Iran into the modern era with brilliant success and sometimes terrible consequences. The biographies and essays weave a richly textured tapestry of lives, ideas, and events that reveals the true story of these decades in the life of a nation. The two volumes are divided into sections on politics, economics, and culture, each accompanied by an introductory essay that places the individual stories in their broader historical context. Drawn from interviews, extensive archival material, and private correspondence, Eminent Persians is a treasure trove of original documents, many appearing in print for the first time. Detailed sketches of personalities and personal foibles offer a compelling and highly readable account of this remarkable period of history on a human scale.
