Secondly, the Christians’ concept of trinity waspuzzlesome for me. The similitude like Canadian Mapleleaf being one despite three sections appeared utterlyunapplicable.
The crunch came when an Egyptian started questioningme. Despite being confused about the Christian belief Iwas trying to be dogmatic as most white, middle-class,English Christians do. I was flummoxed when he led meto accept that the God died on the crucifix, thus layingbare the hollowness of the Christian claims of eternityand infinity of God. I now came to realise that I wasbelieving in as absurd a concept as two plus two isequal to five all through my adolescent years.
West’s prelaid, programmed life intensely repelled me. Ibegan to question if a person has to live a life merely toget strait-jacketed in a rigorous schedule. I foundEuropeans struggling a lot to enjoy life. They had nohigher purpose in life.
West’s capacity to brainwash its people became plain tome when I discussed the Palestine issue with Egyptiansand Palestinians. Several myths-historical, political,economic - were fabricated by the Zionists andpropagated unchallenged by the Western media. Howcould a land vacated by Jews 2000 years earlier be theirhomeland? I also came to know that existing Jewishpeople were actually Slaves, not simites and thatPalestinian land was always a green orchard. Israelfabricated the myth of “magical transformation of desertinto greenland.”
The American double-speak and hypocrisy began to sinkin as I studied the US role in planting and sustainingdespotic rulers in Latin America while punishing theSoviet Bloc.
