Rafiq is the author of the brand-new Days of Shock, Days of Wonder: The 9/11 Age, the Ways of the Mystics, and One Man’s Escape from Babylon in the Belly of a Whale. It’s a terrific read. As I say in the blurb:
“The 9/11 inside job degraded our culture – not just American culture but the emerging global culture – beyond anything we could have imagined. No single event in the history of humanity has ever had such a profoundly negative impact on our species and its place in the web of life with the possible exception of the bombing of Hiroshima. This is not because 9/11 was an unusually large-scale act of mass murder – its 3,000 or so victims were a drop in the bucket of the 60 million murdered by US CIA and military interventions since World War II – but rather by way of its psychological impact through media propaganda.
“So how do we deal with it? Writer and documentary filmmaker Robert “Rafiq” Lewis set off on a journey that integrated 9/11 truth activism into his quest for a more authentic life outside the Matrix. If a latter-day Kerouac or Bukowski eschewed alcohol for cannabis encountered Sufism and faced 9/11 truth and its implications the result might look a bit like this. So please do read Rafiq’s account: Days of Shock Days of Wonder: The 9/11 Age The Ways of the Mystics and One Man’s Escape from Babylon in the Belly of a Whale. It’s an engrossing read and an important document of our time.”
Rafiq is writer and filmmaker Robert Sean Lewis.
