Anthroposophy In The News: Ahriman Speaks to the Faithful
- Islam is an Ahrimanic reflection of the Christ-impulse and Ahriman works
wherever consciousness is lowered, as in the dream state.
STRANGE DREAMS OF THE MULLAHS
September 11, 2001--the image is stark, stunning and unforgetable--a
modern jetliner crashing into a tower at the World Trade Center in New York
Seeing it on live TV as jarring enough. But some of the mullahs of
Osama Bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network claim to have seen the exact same scene
in their dreams a year ago.
On Saturday, December 15, 2001, the Bush administration released the
full text of a videotape the CIA claimed to have taken of Osama Bin Laden
in Kandahar in November. During the discussion with his aides of the WTC
events, Osama mentioned several strange incidents of prophetic dreams among
the Al-Qaeda faithful.
On tape, Osama said an aide, Abu Al-Hasan Al-Masri, "told me a year
ago: 'I saw in a dream, we were playing a soccer (futbol in Latin America)
game against the Americans. When our team showed up in the field, they
were all pilots!' He said, 'So I wondered if that was a soccer game or a
pilot game? Our players were pilots.' He (Al-Hasan) didn't know anything
about the operation until he heard it on the radio. He said the game went
on, and we defeated them. That was a good omen for us."
Another mullah, Abd Al-Rahman Al-Ghamri "said he saw a vision before
the operation--a plane crashed into a tall building."
Abu Daud, a Taliban cadre, also reported a precognitive
dream: According to Osama, "He (Abu Daud) told me that he saw, in a
dream, a tall building in America, and in the same dream he saw Mukhtar
teaching them karate. At this point, I was worried that maybe the secret
would be revealed if everyone starts seeing it in their dream. So I closed
the subject. I told him if he sees another dream, not to tell anybody
because people will be upset with him."
(Editor's Comment: Apparently Osama believes precognition is contagious.)
And unidentified Taliban woman in Kandahar also "recounted a dream
about two planes hitting a big building." (See the Duluth News-Tribune for
December 16, 2001, "Text of the Bin Laden videotape," page 5A.)
