    Hello Dr. Fazal Rahman

    My name is Gilberto Sieber and I’m from Switzerland. I’m writing you hopefully you are the person that I’m searching for. About maybe 20 years ago you where in Brazil and met my mother Aparecida and my father Daniel. Now I was coming home from work and my mother tried to translate a mail you wrote 22 years ago. In hope she can find some a contact address. So I took the mail and i read that your are a prof. So I stared searching you by the way how its today usual with google and I found this blog. My mom was searching you for so long and now I hope that you remember bout your time in Brazil as my mom helped you and I found the right Fazal.

    • Hello Gilberto:

      I also sent this to your email address.

      It is great that your mother still remembers me. Yes, I am the one your mother had met. It is very rare to find souls like that here in the USA. She has very rare higher human qualities. Please tell her that I still love her soul and miss being close to her. Please inform me about her well being. How many children did she have? Is all your family still together? Have you been to Brazil? It is such a great country with great potentials, but corrupt politicians and financial elites, as well as the Americanization of its culture and political economy, have messed it up. Are you happy in Switzerland? Is Cida (Aparecida) happy there?

      Let us keep in touch,

  2. Hello Dr. Fazal Rahman,

    My name is Casey and I am a junior undergrad student of philosophy and French. I came upon your blog during my current assigned research of fundamental religious groups. This research is pertaining to my French class (of which the professor is a scholar of the African Diaspora and imperialism of the West) called “Islam in West African Society”.

    With that being said, I’ve been particularly doing my research on the Islamic State (ISIS/Daesh) and have found a lot of my (internet) research to be quite complicated. Knowing of course that not everything on the internet nor the media may be permitted as the absolute and unadulterated/exaggerated truth, I am now quite lost in comprehension of the full story of ISIS.
    If you could respond with aid and clarification I would be very grateful and appreciative.

    So from what I understand so far, briefly, Daesh has its origins in Iraq as a split– or renaming of Al-Qaeda. From Iraq, Al Qaeda was formed in response to the US Invasion to take over their oil (?and to spread democracy/western “civilized” values?). And due to Al-Qaeda as a rebel group, it caused the emergence of civil wars in the surrounding area (?to spread/retain fundamental Muslim values?). From here, why did Al-Qaeda branch off to ISIS and how does ISIS attract Muslims from around the world (US and Europe) to join them in their “terrorism”?

    Your help and further leads will be greatly appreciated
