It is the Arab society who has been reacting to such turning-back
I wrote it in the previous BLOG that the 'Modern Standard Arabic',
which has been used all over the Arabic sphere, from the west end
of Africa to the east of Iraq, has little been changed from the
words with which Muhammad, the last and true prophet, was revealed
by the absolute God, Allah, about 1400 years ago, and the Arab society
is the one in which any deviation from those words is not forgiven.
This is the community in which the transcendent religion and the
secular society are closely combined by the words of the Qur'an.
As it is symbolized by the fact that Muhammad came from a merchant,
on the other hand the Arab society is considerably pure association
Former terrorism before the Internet prevailed could be found its
prime motives and causes in such secular problems as politics and
economy, except for terrorism aiming at personal revenge, however
today's terrorism as in New York the other day, in London recently
and in Baghdad frequent everyday, cannot be found its roots from
such secular viewpoints as before.
Because they fundamentally mistook the judgment and have not yet noticed
it, otherwise they may have been pretending as if they don't notice
it because they cannot turn back now, Iraq has been unable to get
rid of the present horrible condition.
The attack against Iraq can be accounted by secular reasons, but the
occupation of Iraq cannot be accounted by them only.
Looking at the bustle of Sazaby's and Christy's auctions held in London
and New York, sometimes in Tokyo as well, the slogan or the message
that let's make cultural assets human's common property looks something
even like a dreamy story of a maiden of the white rose of virginity.
Almost all of the features in those auctions are the cultural assets,
they are made a bid of so extraordinary prices as to outsiders, will
be moved from one's hands to another's hands, openly in some cases
or secretly in other cases.
Even though, unless making cultural assets humans common property
or making it possible, it is impossible in the present society in
which the Internet has already appeared to lessen, I don't say wipe
them out!, the terrorism. Pandora's Box has already been opened!
It is cultural assets which can carefully bring up a tiny fairy 'hope'
of the Internet combining the transcended and the secular. It is the
area of the Middle and Near East, duplicated with the modern Arab
society, which has been looted most of its cultural assets.
In the flooding of the Internet cafes at every corner in Arab towns,
one of the safety devices which may be able to avoid the nuclear explosion,
of the community, especially of the Arab community, is 'cultural assets.'
