Marx and the Story of Moses; مارکس و داستان موسی

فرعون فقط اهرام ثلاثه می خواست توده های مردم از فرسنگها دورتر شاید ازدره های کلیمانجارو تخته سنگهای عظیم می آوردند دربین راه و در کنار نیل در زیر سایه های سنگین سنگ ها مقدمات حرکتی جمعی و شورشی گروهی را برنامه ریختند فرعون پس از پی بردن ماجرا به موسی دسنور داد تا نابخردان را به دوردستها ببرد و سرزمینی موعود را نشانشان دهد بدین صورت بود که هم فرعون خدا ماند و هم موسی پیامبر شد

In my school times in Iran, we never got a chance to view the history of religions from other perspectives! Did you know that it was Moses who by diverting a workers' revolution to a promised land saved the throne of the Pharaoh?!!!

Never mind the truth, it is the imagination that matters!

It is all about imagination! N'est-ce pas????

ISRAEL'S LATEST NEGOTIATIONS
Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2003 11:02:08 0000
ISRAEL'S NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE PALESTINIANS ENTER A NEW PHASE:

The prime minister of Israel sits down with Arafat at the beginning of negotiations regarding the resolution of the conflict.
Prime Minister Sharon requests that he be allowed to begin with a story.
Arafat replies, "Of course."

The prime minister begins his story:
"Years before the Israelites came to the Promised Land and settled here, Moses led them for 40 years through the desert. The Israelites began complaining that they were thirsty and, lo and behold, a miracle occurred and a stream appeared before them. They drank their fill and then
decided to take advantage of the stream to do some bathing -- including Moses. When Moses came out of the water, he found that all his clothing was missing.
"'Who took my clothes?' Moses asked those around him.
"'It was the Palestinians,' replied the Israelites.

"Wait a minute," objected Arafat immediately, "there were no Palestinians during the time of Moses!"

"All right," replied the prime minister.
"Now that we've got that settled, let's begin our negotiations."

I did not get the point clearly, however, I like the Marxist story, simply because it is an alternative analysis! It is always good to remember that religions might be socio-political events over power.
All the stories in Qoran and the Bible have the root in Greek mythology, which then retold as God's words.

Well, it's the first time that I heard Biblical stories have roots in Greek mythology. Where did you read this? please give a reference.
