  • Darrick Evenson, a new Daheshist

    Hello, my name is Darrick Evenson. I'm a new Daheshist. I was a Mormon from 1979 until 1996, then I became a Baha'i. I became a Daheshist after reading about him in The Enclycopedia of American Religions at a local public library.

    I've been a Seeker of Truth. I've studied all the religions on earth that anyone has written about in the English language.

    I always knew that somewhere on earth was a man who could PROVE he was sent by God by his miracles; a modern man. And that was Dr. Dahesh.
    I'm the author of several Daheshist websites:

    I started Dahesh Mission USA as a volunteer missionary organization, now only over the Net.

    Feel free to email me anytime:

    And the TURKEY AWARD goes to....

    It is not our policy to censor anyone, that is why we are leaving Darrick Evenson's post "as is" for the history books.

    Let it also be known that Darrick Evenson, a self-proclaimed white speparatist is the first person—ever—to threaten a Daheshist on American soil by sending him the following email:

    "If I ever meet you, you're gonna wish you have NEVER been born!"

    Please enjoy your visit to Darrick Evenson's web sites which we have awarded the Turkey Award for "Best Distortion of Daheshism" (the statue's in the mail...) Of course, we also award Doctor Ghazi Brax the Turkey Award for "Total Lack of Judgement When it Comes to Selecting a Protégé!"

      shocking

      I believe i can understand after checking Mr Darrick Evenson websites the magnitude of his miscomprehension and thus the adminstrator's reply.

      But what i can't understand is why our administrator is adressing Dr Brax
      in public without sharing with all members the problem\s found between profound Daheshists such as yourselves.

        Dear Brother Samer,

        I am sorry and maybe it's my english but ... Would you allow me to ask you to explain what do you exactly mean by these words ?

        Thank you so much.

          Afin qu’aucun malentendu ne puisse exister nous souhaiterions faire un rapide résumé de la chronologie des évènements intervenus au sein de Daheshville depuis sa conception.

          Darrick Evenson, membre depuis le 8 juin 2006 s’est présenté dès le départ comme un fervent admirateur du Docteur Ghazi Brax avec lequel il échangeait de nombreux courriers.

          Docteur Ghazi Brax répondait en privé aux questions de Darrick sous la forme d’Epîtres.

          Darrick prenait ensuite la liberté de reproduire ces Epîtres, entièrement ou partiellement, sur Daheshville en réponse aux diverses questions abordées sur le forum.

          Darrick apparaissait comme L'HOMME de confiance de Ghazi Brax qui le considérait comme LA PERSONNE potentiellement capable de répandre LE DAHESHISME !!!

          Pour autant, les divers sites de Darrick Evenson comportaient toujours autant d’aberrations et de mensonges concernant le Docteur Dahesh, le Daheshisme ainsi que Docteur Ghazi Brax lui-même.

          Au mois d’Août 2006 fut abordée sur Daheshville la question de L’immaculée Conception du Christ.

          A la suite de certains propos, Darrick fut offensé par certaines révélations et après divers échanges, le 28 Septembre 2006, Darrick a posté le 9ème Epître qui lui avait été envoyé par Docteur Ghazi Brax.

          Dans cet Epître, Dr Ghazi Brax affirmait connaître La Vérité concernant la Conception du Christ alors que Mario n’était pas de ceux qui avaient mérité de savoir.

          Par ces propos Docteur Ghazi Brax a porté un jugement de valeur sur un Frère Daheshiste privilégiant de ce fait, une personne totalement étrangère à savoir Darrick Evenson.

          Ce fut là une seconde attaque à l’encontre de Mario.
          En effet, dans une précédente intervention, Docteur Ghazi Brax traita Mario de menteur lorsque celui-ci avait évoqué le sujet de l’homosexualité, à la suite d’un autre Epître posté par Darrick sur Daheshville.

          Cet Epître présentait des idées fondamentalement dangereuses et en contradiction avec ce dont Mario avait été témoin, durant des années, au sein de la maison de La Mission Daheshiste aux Etats-Unis, dans laquelle l’homme qui s’occupait des divers travaux était en fait homosexuel.

          Docteur Ghazi Brax aurait pu s’adresser directement à Mario s’il avait eu des observations ou des critiques à formuler à son encontre … au lieu de cela, ses remarques ont été faites à Darrick Evenson qui ensuite a pris la liberté de les poster sur Daheshville. On peut ici aisément s’interroger sur la confiance que Ghazi plaçait naturellement en la personne de Darrick Evenson.

          Nous remarquons à grand regret que personne ne s’est jamais posé la question de savoir quelles ont pu être les conséquences psychologiques de 'tout cela' sur la personne de Mario.

          Pour continuer les dommages et dans la foulée, Mario s’est vu licencier de son poste de Directeur de Marketing au sein d’une Société qu’il avait fondé avec un homme connu pour être le bras droit de Docteur Ghazi Brax.

          En résumé:
          Pour avoir osé exprimer la vérité dont il avait été témoin et décrit ce qu’il avait entendu de la bouche même du Docteur Dahesh, Mario s’est vu pénaliser par deux frères mécontents du fait qu’il faisait libre usage de sa Liberté d’expression.

          A l’exception des membres faisant partie du conseil de Direction de Daheshville et de certains membres de Daheshville présents au moment des faits, aucun représentant Daheshiste ne s’est manifesté pour dénoncer l’injustice commise à l’encontre de leur Frère Mario. Au contraire, il semblerait que Mario soit considéré par Ghazi comme un 'fou' sur lequel on ne peut compter ...

          Nous nous permettrons ici de faire une parenthèse pour évoquer notre étonnement et notre indignation sur le fait que Docteur Ghazi Brax n’a jamais publiquement dénoncé la prise de position des responsables du Musée Dahesh proclamant que : « Le Docteur Dahesh n’avait jamais fondé de mouvement spirituel et qu’IL n’avait jamais proclamé être un Prophète… »

          Il semblerait que l’on fasse grand cas de Dr Ghazi Brax alors qu’aucune voix – à l’exception de celles exprimées sur Daheshville - ne s’est jamais élevée nulle part pour dénoncer l’INJUSTICE faite au Docteur Dahesh lorsqu’on ose LE présenter comme un simple philosophe et collectionneur et que l’on nie également officiellement l’existence du DAHESHISME !

          Il nous paraît de la plus haute importance de toujours placer LE DOCTEUR et LA MISSION DAHESHISTE au cœur du débat et des discussions qui nous animent sur Daheshville et ailleurs…

          N’oublions jamais que Dr Ghazi Brax aussi important et érudit soit-il, est avant toute chose, au service du Docteur DAHESH et du Daheshisme.

          Entre temps, diverses personnes sont venues se plaindre auprès des membres de Daheshville de l'attitude et des propos tenus par Darrick Evenson sur l'Internet et sur divers autres forums ... Darrick se présentant comme étant Daheshiste, la suspicion et le doute commençèrent à plâner sur Le Daheshisme dans sa globalité ainsi que sur nos motivations profondes ... ce qui est absolument grave et intolérable !

          Pour finir, mentionnons le fait que Darrick Evenson a envoyé la 23 Mars 2007 à Mario une sérieuse menace ayant fait l’objet d’une enquête policière et entraîné l’ouverture d’un dossier auprès du FBI …

          Une fois de plus, personne n’est venu s’inquiéter des conséquences pour la vie déjà fort perturbée de Mario.

          Nous considérons bien entendu Docteur Ghazi Brax comme un être humain de la plus haute importance pour le Daheshisme et nous avons le plus grand respect pour lui, bien malheureusement, il semble être entouré de personnes qui veulent avant tout tirer avantage de SES connaissances Daheshistes afin de nourrir leur propre ambition.

          Dr Ghazi Brax est à nouveau chaleureusement invité à participer au sein de Daheshville afin que SA vérité puisse s'exprimer.

          Ce qui vient d'être évoqué nous semble constituer des faits hautement préoccupants pour le devenir de notre Foi Daheshiste ... LA MISSION DAHESHISTE habrite avant toute chose des hommes et des femmes guidés par LE DOCTEUR DAHESH ...

          LA MISSION est d'essence divine, Elle est Pure et Noble ... et ceux qui voudraient tenter de lui ôter son caractère sacré seront responsables devant DIEU ...

            So that there is no room for misunderstanding we wish to make a quick summary of the chronology of the events that took place within the heart of Daheshville since its inception.

            Darrick Evenson, member since June 8, 2006, has presented himself from the beginning as a fervent admirer of Doctor Ghazi Brax with whom he would exchange numerous letters. Doctor Ghazi Brax answered in private Darrick's questions in the form of Epistles.

            In response to the diverse questions raised on Daheshville, Darrick would take the liberty of reproducing these Epistles in whole or in part. Darrick appeared to be THE MAN of trust of Ghazi Brax who, in return, considered him as THE PERSON potentially capable of spreading DAHESHISM!!!!

            All the while, the many websites of Darrick Evenson always featured aberrations and lies concerning Doctor Dahesh, Daheshism, as welll as Dr. Ghazi Brax himself.

            In August of 2006, the subject of the Immaculate Conception of Christ was discussed. Pursuant to certain topics raised, Darrick was offended by certain revelations and diverse exchanges. On September 28, 2006, Darrick posted the 9th Epistle sent to him by Doctor Ghazi Brax.

            In this Epistle, Dr. Ghazi Brax affirmed knowing The Truth concerning the conception of Christ and that Mario was not among those who merited to know.

            By these words, Doctor Ghazi Brax brought a value judgment upon a Daheshist brother, thus privileging a total stranger known as Darrick Evenson.

            This would be the second attack upon Mario.

            In fact, in an earlier intervention, Doctor Ghazi Brax treated Mario as a liar when the latter evoked the subject of homosexuality pursuant to an Epistle posted by Darrick on Daheshville.

            This Epistle presented ideas fundamentally dangerous and in contradiction with what Mario had witnessed over the course of years in the heart of the House of the Daheshist Mission in the U.S.A., where a male housekeeper was in fact a homosexual.

            Doctor Ghazi Brax could have addressed himself directly to Mario if he had any observations or critiques to give him... Instead of that, his remarks were made to Darrick Evenson who then took the liberty of posting them on Daheshville.

            Here, we can easily wonder about the trust that Ghazi placed naturally in the person of Darrick Evenson.

            With great regret we point out that no one has ever asked what were, or what could have been, the psychological consequences of "All That" on the person of Mario.

            To add insult to injury and without giving him time to breathe, Mario was fired from his post of Vice President of Marketing from a company he co-founded with a man known for being the right arm of Dr. Ghazi Brax.

            To summarize:

            For having dared to express the truth of which he was a witness and for having described what he heard from the mouth of Doctor Dahesh, Mario found himself penalized by two brothers who were not happy with the fact that he was freely exercising his freedom of expression.

            With the exception of the members who make up the Board of Directors of Daheshville and certain members of Daheshville present at the time these events took place, no Daheshist representative has come forth to denounce this injustice committed against their brother Mario.

            On the contrary, it would seem that Ghazi considers Mario as one who is "crazy" and upon whom one cannot count...

            We permit ourselves here to open a parenthesis to evoke our astonishment and indignation over the fact that Doctor Ghazi Brax has never publicly denounced the position taken by those in charge of the Dahesh Museum. In a six page article titled "The Riddle of Doctor Dahesh" published in the December 1996 issue of ArtNews magazine, we found the following official statement on behalf of the Dahesh Museum board of directors:

            Kaplan goes even further. Speaking on behalf of the board, she denies that Dr. Dahesh founded the spiritual movement. "He didn't establish it," Kaplan says. "The fact is, these people (Daheshists), that's what they say. He never proclaimed himself anything, not a prophet, not a reincarnation. He never claimed anything that people are claiming for him. He was born a Christian, and he must have been very charismatic."

            It would seem that we are making a big case of Dr. Ghazi Brax whereas no other voice—except for those expressed in Daheshville—was ever raised anywhere to denounce The INJUSTICE done to Doctor Dahesh when one dares to officially present HIM as a mere philosopher and art collector and when one also officially negates the existence of Daheshism!

            To us, it seems of the upmost importance to always place THE DOCTOR and the DAHESHIST MISSION at the heart of the debates and discussions that move us in Daheshville or anywhere else.

            Let us never forget that as erudite and important as Dr. Ghazi Brax is, he is first and foremost at the service of DOCTOR DAHESH and of Daheshism.

            And while all this was happening, different people came complaining to the members of Daheshville about the attitudes and subjects expressed by Darrick Evenson over the internet and on many other forums... Darrick presenting himself as being a Daheshist, suspicion and doubt began to loom over Daheshism in its totality as well as our deep intentions... which is absolutely serious and intolerable!

            In closing, let us mention the fact that on March 23, 2007, Darrick Evenson sent a serious threat to Mario which led to a police investigation and the opening of an F.B.I. file.

            Once again, no Daheshist representative came to express concern over the consequences for Mario's already highly perturbed life.

            We of course consider Doctor Ghazi Brax to be a human being of the highest importance for Daheshism and we have the utmost respect for him, although unfortunately, he seems to be surrounded by people who wish to take advantage of HIS Daheshist knowledge in order to feed their own ambition.

            Dr. Ghazi Brax is once more warmly invited to participate in the heart of Daheshville so that HIS truth can be expressed.

            To us, all that which has been evoked above, constitutes highly critical facts for the becoming of our Daheshist Faith... THE DAHESHIST MISSION shelters, before anything else, men and women who were guided by Doctor Dahesh.

            THE MISSION is of a Divine essence, SHE is Pure and Noble... And those who would attempt to strip her of her Sacred Character will be responsible before GOD...

              As always Sandrine, beautifully written. I agree with everything you expressed.

              To my knowledge, all parties involved in this issue have been contacted privately, directly or indirectly as well as openly here in Daheshville. Also, anyone involved knows the severity of the threats that have been leveled against Mario and only those on Daheshville have stepped up and even acknowledged that they existed at all. One of our Daheshist brothers has been personally threatened and no one, and I mean no one but those here have stepped up to Mario’s defense. The people feeding Darrick information and leaving him unchecked have never acknowledged or even contacted Mario to offer any form of support or follow up… like “hey Mario…are you ok?”

              We here at Daheshville have always welcomed everyone to come and participate in any and all discussions that happen here. We have never tried to fan the flames of controversy …we have only tried to the reveal the truth.

              •First and foremost, we are a community united to discuss the life and facts and teachings of Dr. Dahesh.
              •Secondly, we are a community to bring to a central common location all those Daheshists and non-Daheshists from all parts of the world and all walks of life together in to one shared location.
              •Thirdly, as a community, it means people are involved, and invariably there will be “issues”. We also address these “issues” here as well.


              We have publicly stood up for one of our brothers when he was attacked. We have defended rigorously the privacy and rights of the Trustees (even when we have not always agreed with them). We have publicly invited those that have knowledge to share to come and share their writings here…even when they have passed along through their emissaries that “Daheshville is a bad place”. We have addressed issues of maintaining decorum of all members of Daheshville without ever editing any individual’s point of view.

              We have discussed the fine line between “airing dirty laundry” publicly and speaking the truth. None of these posts have been posted in haste. Careful thought has always been put in to the content, the meaning and potential interpretations and ramifications of talking about these issues online. In the end, the facts are the facts. To some they may seem inflammatory and insulting, to others they reveal the honesty with which they are spoken. And, most importantly, as with everything else discussed here in Daheshville, all counterpoints, responses and commentary are always welcomed…and encouraged.

                Let's get to the crux of the matter, shall we?

                Dear Samer:

                A very close Daheshist to me spoke in person with Dr. Brax—after Darrick's threat.

                Brax's response was (in a nutshell) that it was all our fault and we brought it upon ourselves and that if Daheshville never existed Darrick would never had done all that he had done (and I remind everyone that Daheshville came AFTER Darrick's websites). Then he added that "It is dangerous that Mario is all alone at the the head of Daheshville." (Which is NOT true. I may be outspoken, but so can EVERYONE ELSE! In case no one's paying attention, Darrick is STILL a member of Daheshville and he is NOT banned and NOT censored. And, who's stopping YOU Ghazi Brax from freely joining the forum and expressing your opposing views.)

                Meanwhile... the public is STILL seeing his picture and email address on Darrick's cult-like website... hence, giving the impression that we are a cult. But don't take my word for it, go read what New Yorker Magazine said...

                To add insult to injury, practically no one was showing any level of concern.

                So, why should we protect ANYONE who, so far, has been an enabler of Darrick Evenson, and one who refuses to either work with us or even acknowledge our efforts, and especially when doing so gives the impression we condone their actions?

                Any idea I have about ANY Daheshist is either based on personal experience or on what I heard from Dr. Dahesh himself. There were—I assure you—a couple of "MYTHS" I dared not challenge until they were extinguished in an instant by Doctor Dahesh. And, he didn't just say to me "don't believe it..." He told me stories that were, in fact, "wake-up calls."
                One might even say that he DEPROGRAMMED ME... And I can't tell you how many people I ran into years later who STILL clung to those myths.

                The only thing that impresses me in any man, woman, deer, or mouse, is their words and actions. I couldn't care less how much knowledge they have.

                Knowledge is power. Power can also corrupt... The way Brax behaved was not appropriate. But, to whom am I going to complain? Where IS the Daheshist organization that I can trust to hear me and deal with this issue fairly and objectively?


                Regards,

                Mario Henri Chakkour

                  That’s right Mario and if Daheshville was not there … Who would denounce Darrick’s websites, his writings on many forums in order to proselytize in the name of Daheshism which is totally against the Doctor’s wishes ? …

                  Can we be proud of ourselves when we see the Doctor’s photo and the comments under Darrick’s post dated from May 22, 2007 (and it's only a sample of what we've seen) ?

                  http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index....opic=234927111


                  Isn’t it our duty to condemn what we consider to be an offense to our faith ?

                  We know that at the begining of their relationship, Dr Ghazi Brax gave many credits, information and trust to Darrick … thus, we consider that Ghazi should have taken great care of HIS student …

                  Now that the damages have been done, we've heard from a reliable source that, in no way Dr Brax feels responsible for anything ... and yes unfortunately, it’s as if Daheshville was to be blamed when in fact Daheshville has been and still is, the only public place where we've always denounced these regrettable facts …

                  Isn't it sad ?

                    The Double Standard!

                    Oh, Brax blames Daheshville, huh...

                    Here is the emails between Darrick Evenson and Brax's partner, who was first contacted by Darrick and who was so happy that Darrick wanted to use quotes from his website and book. Darrick then created his web sites. Brax's partner writes him a letter in which he accuses Darrick of having hijacked Daheshism (and Carbon Copies me as well as Brax and another) As far as I know, Brax was NOT in favor of what his partner did. And you can clearly see that Darrick is saying he will do whatever he wants whenever he wants...

                    The reason, my dear Ghazi that Daheshville was created was shortly after he came back and contacted me. I told him that I did not agree with the way your partner treated him and that I would be ready to create a place where he could come and "preach." I HAVE THE EMAILS.

                    Anyway, that way, he can do it in a place where (at least) his activities can be monitored and his understanding corrected... where YOU can come and make sure of that. INSTEAD... well, we know what happened: you begin to give him bits and pieces, incomplete information. He calls you the closest thing we have to a Pope... and VOILA! The Ego has been stroked and Darrick can do no wrong!

                    Anyway...

                    1) Darrick sends an email informing Brax's partner that he is blocking his email.

                    From: Darrick Evenson <[email protected]>

                    Take care, and good luck.

                    _____________________

                    2) Darrick sends an email informing Brax's partner informing him of his intentions... Please note, that this took place months before Daheshville was created.

                    I'm going to have to do my own thing, and go my own way. I will write what I wish, when I wish, how I wish. This is my final communication to you. Take care.
                    Darrick Evenson


                    And this is the letter that started it all...It was sent by Brax's partner to Darrick Evenson, after he had a chance to see what the latter had posted on his web sites.


                    _______________________________ wrote:

                    Dear Darrick,

                    First of all, I am sorry for referring to you as "Derrick" in my
                    previous email. Please accept my apologies.

                    Second, I finally had the chance to read many of the things you have
                    written--especially the FAQs about Dahesh and Daheshism. I have to
                    admire your enthusiasm and intellect. I like many of the things you
                    wrote, however, it didn't take long for me to get upset. Please forgive
                    me and allow me to explain:

                    It is perfectly okay to state opinions and to write anything you feel
                    like writing, however, such opinions and writings are yours and should
                    not be attributed to anything or anyone. There is a lot you don't know
                    or understand about Daheshism and some of the things you have written
                    are contrary to the teachings of Daheshism and are very damaging. This
                    is exactly what I meant in my previous email about being careful in our
                    approach to people, because the damage can be severe.

                    There are many issues that need to be addressed, from those I will list
                    a few:

                    -There is no such a thing as "Daheshite-Christians." There is only ONE
                    Daheshism.
                    -Daheshism respects all religions. All religions have an element of
                    truth, yet some are spiritually more advanced than others. This doesn't
                    give any religion an exclusive right to the "truth."
                    -The goal of Daheshism is NOT to attack other religions, but rather to
                    state its principles and attract those of spiritual maturity. No goats
                    and no lambs here.
                    -Where on earth did you come up with the extrapolation that heavenly
                    worlds are near the center of the Galaxy? There are billions upon
                    billions of Galaxies, with Billions upon Billions of stars--many with
                    planets. This is only in this Universe, and only God knows if other
                    Parallel Universe(s) exist.
                    -There are NO requirements to becoming a Daheshist other than belief.
                    There are no requirements for serving as a Daheshist Missionary other
                    than proper moral values and proper understanding of Daheshism.
                    -Your understanding of the Daheshist concept of Heaven, Hell, and the
                    Spiritual Worlds is very limited--It is not your fault. There is a lot
                    to learn before writing about it. If you need to write about them from
                    the Daheshist view, you would need to understand how Daheshism defines
                    such worlds.
                    -Your understanding of the Christ entity from the Daheshist point of
                    view is flawed. There is a lot to learn about this topic.
                    -Your classification of Edgar Casey as a Spiritual Guide does not agree
                    with Daheshism. I have other words to describe Edgar Casey and none
                    have anything to do with spirituality and religion.
                    -The Daheshist Teachings are pure and should remain so.

                    To be honest with you, if you remove all references to Daheshism or
                    Dahesh from your entire FAQ section I would have no problem with any of
                    the things you have written because it is your opinion and
                    interpretation. However, I feel that you have "hijacked" Daheshism and made it into "Evensonism." Again, I have no problem with "Evensonism"
                    as long as they do not reference Daheshism or Dahesh, because it is a
                    distortion and a contradiction to everything we believe in.

                    You are a man of intellect with an insatiable desire for seeking the
                    "truth." I do share this desire with you, however, we need to act
                    within the constraints of Daheshist Teachings. If after becoming
                    knowledgeable of our teachings you decide that Daheshism is not for
                    you, I would fully understand and it is well within your right as a
                    free individual.

                    I hope my comments do not discourage you and I hope you view them as
                    constructive. If I may suggest that you take what you have written so
                    far offline until we are able to supply you with the correct
                    information. Look at it this way, would you want to be responsible for
                    deliberately misleading people?

                    Again, please forgive me Darrick if my comments to you seem harsh.

                    May God be with you and enlighten your path,

                    Sincerely,

                    ____________________

                      What is the Solution then?

                      Darrick Evenson is still going around proselytizing... and for any Daheshist who thinks this OK: how would feel if someone entered Daheshville and posted a Photo of their prophet, and did a sales pitch. We're not talking about bringing awareness about other religions and building bridges here. No, here, we are talking about aggressive recruiting methods.

                      I once told a member of Daheshville who called me the following: "I am not looking for any friend, but should one knock upon my door, I will welcome them in and nurture them."

                      NURTURE.

                      It is NOT about hammering information in people's mind, recruiting, and quotas.

                      It is about knowing how to appeal to the RIGHT people who WANT the message.

                      Yes, we CAN put an Ad in a Newspaper. Yes, we CAN introduce ourselves in a forum. But if our only goal is to convert anybody and everybody... We've missed the point.

                      Christ said "I know my sheep and my sheep know me"

                      He didn't say "I'll just let my sheep dogs round up the herd!"

                        Thank you brothers and sisters for answering the question posted earlier concerning the problem provoking public tension.

                        After reading what was posted by Sandrine and Mario,i find myself watching a boxing match for which the prize is apology.i don't know how deep the conflict goes,but what i know is that if compared to the depth of the spiritual message we are very shallow.

                        First i don't know the reasons for Dr Brax to discourage Daheshville for no such information was published.So if there is any clarification,we would highly appreciate.(I think the public critisizing and judging is harmful)

                        Second,concerning the Dahesh museum.Is what was declared in the newspaper article coming from Daheshist person?
                        Why was there no reply for such declaration?

                        Third,Mario,i pray that the effort you're doing with all brothers and sisters in Daheshville flourish and help in spreading The Holly Message properly.

                        Fourth,the advertising link posted By Sandrine shows the size of harm Darrick is creating.From the message sent to Darrick by Dr Brax's partner, we can see clearly that we all as Daheshistes refuse this.And honestly i don't understand the implication that Dr Brax is protecting Darrick.From who and what,and is he really?

                        I hope if there was any problem between Daheshist brothers and sisters to be resolved and not brought to pubic.(Please this is my opinion)

                          It all depends on your definition of "protect."

                          The message sent to Darrick by Brax's partner was in October 2005.

                          Brax was still helping Darrick by giving him valuable information up until October 2006—12 months after the letter.

                          Have you seen the Epistles posted on Daheshville? Here is the opening of one of them for example... Sent to Darrick on July 11, 2006 (9 months after the partner's letter and WAY after Darrick has really infiltrated the web with this damaging activities)... Note how the letter begins (supposedly written by Najwa Brax... Which I know for a fact is not true—Oh, I forgot, my first hand witness does not count... OK, how about this: How many old fashioned Daheshist Women do you know will openly discuss sexuality in writing with a man (that's #1) and a man they never even met (that's #2). According to my witness, both Najwa and the "partner" were not in agreement with Brax. Brax refused to listen. He was determined to believe that Darrick was good for Daheshism. In fact, he (according to my witness) even suggested that his partner should work with him (this is AFTER the letter...)

                          " Dear Darrick,

                          Dr. Brax is pleased with your successive questions; this is a sign that you are eager to get full about Daheshism, and this is good for you if you plan to
                          proselytize. As for your questions stated on your e-mails of June 13 and July 3, 2006, here are Dr. Brax’ answers: ... "

                          Hopefully, my above reply was satisfactory in establishing that —even after having seen evidence that Darrick is NOT good for Daheshism—Brax was still SECRETLY sending him information... Darrick's mistake is that he never heeded my advice and requests. And Brax was not helping the situation by making Darrick feel soooo special... So, I waited, and waited... and waited... But after seeing that Brax was REALLY going overboard, I had no recourse but to go public with these letters (and that was AFTER he defamed ME in Public).

                          As for this issue of being a shallow issue... Please read what Sandrine wrote some time ago in the Forum having to do with the Role of Women in Daheshism...

                          As for this issue about the museum... Once again... The spokeswoman works for the Trustees.
                          She spoke on their behalf in 1996.

                          There has never been a retraction.

                          Not one open apology.

                          And in 2006, that same woman was made interim Museum Director. "Mabrook."

                          As to why? God only knows... I HAVE written a LOT on the subject matter and I invite you to dig through the archives. I presented theories, opinions, etc.

                          Maybe I should tell you and the world of the many dreams I've had... Would that matter?
                          How about what Brother Ali told me and what the Doctor said it meant?

                          Or should we simply rely on *** logic and common sense ***

                          Logic and common sense dictates that we DO NOT NEGATE DOCTOR DAHESH and DAHESHISM IN PUBLIC.

                          Duty calls that we PUBLICLY DEMAND A RETRACTION.

                              Dear Samer,

                              What did I do to Ghazi Brax that would necessitate that he would publicly defame me?

                              If memory serves me, when Daheshville was created, Hussein filled it with Ghazi Brax literature and content. Did I or anyone object? Did anyone comment? Did anyone accuse?

                              No. And that is a fact.

                              Ghazi's mistake is that he attacked me in public.

                              I had two choices: say nothing or defend myself.

                              If I kept quiet, people would then get the impression that in Daheshism one does not challenge authority. Ghazi in an authority in some areas. But he is not perfect and he certainly did not earn the right to treat a man of my age and my accomplishments that way, in public.

                              Daheshism is not a cult. We do not bow in front of each other. We love and respect each other.

                              How can I speak or even consider collaborating with Brax knowing what he said about me behind my back?

                              If Ghazi Brax wishes, he is more than welcome to set camp in Daheshville.
                              All he has to do is send instructions to You, Hussein, whomever. We'll create a forum for him and he can be its moderator. But he'd better be ready for people challenging, asking, and wondering...

                              Not unless Brax is expecting that once the information is published... Poof! Daheshism will spread... That does not make any sense...

                              Daheshism is both product and process. You're an architect, you know what that means: when you show your client the floor plans, do you assume they are going to accept them or do you take them through the process?
