JERUSALEM (TheBlaze/AP)— A trove of ancient manuscripts in Hebrew characters rescued from caves in a Taliban stronghold in northern Afghanistan is providing the first physical evidence of a Jewish community that thrived there a thousand years ago.

On Thursday Israel’s National Library unveiled the exciting cache of recently-purchased documents that run the gamut of life experiences, including biblical commentaries, personal letters and financial records.

Researchers say the “Afghan Genizah” marks the greatest such archive found since the “Cairo Genizah” was discovered in an Egyptian synagogue more than 100 years ago, a vast depository of medieval manuscripts considered to be among the most valuable collections of historical documents ever found.

Genizah, a Hebrew term that loosely translates as “storage,” refers to a storeroom adjacent to a synagogue or Jewish cemetery where Hebrew-language books and papers are kept. Under Jewish law, it is forbidden to throw away writings containing the formal names of God, so they are either buried or stashed away.

The Afghan collection gives an unprecedented look into the lives of Jews in ancient Persia in the 11th century. The paper manuscripts, preserved over the centuries by the dry, shady conditions of the caves, include writings in Hebrew, Aramaic, Judea-Arabic and the unique Judeo-Persian language from that era, which was written in Hebrew letters.

I truly think this Lad gets off on being humiliated by kaffir women on a public forum. Some kind of sexual fetish perhaps.

Poster said this at juancole:

The decline of the Muslim World is primarily due to Al-Ghazali and the Ashar’ites shutting down free inquiry in the 10th and 11th centuries. Prior to the ascendence of the Ashar’ites, Islam was very progressive and encouraged free enquiry in the sciences and philosophy.

Al Ghazali’s seminal work,“The Incoherence of the Philosophers,” as well as the Ashar’ite School, completely negated free, rational enquiry, claiming that it was blasphemous, and that all knowledge was contained in the Qur’an. This had the unsurprising effect of cutting the Muslim World off from rational enquiry, while the West began to advance as a result of the pre-Renaissance re-discovery of philosophy and rational enquiry.

Islam makes no distinction betweeen the sacred and the secular, and there has never been an Islamic equivalent of the 18th century European Enlightenment, separating rational enquiry from faith.

That the 10th and 11th century movements, represented by Al Ghazali and the Ashar’ites, replaced rational inquiry with faith and revelation remains an obstacle to modernization in Islamic societies to this day.

I know you Muslim men don't see Faith and Thunder and Trisha and Lipush as your equals. For once I am going to agree with you. They are far better than you and to call them your equal would be an insult.

Ancient Hebrew never existed? And what proof is in your disposal to claim such a thing? the whole Antropological findings will tell you otherwise, so why should your word be any meaningfull to theirs?

Ancient Israelites spoke Hebrew and Aramic, and ancient Hebrew is a very well known prooved language that exist.

You say that it doesn't but you don't have proof. You say Jews circumcise girls, but you don't have proof, you say the Judaist laws of war permit Jews to kill women and children, but you don't have any proof.

You are basically the MASTER of unproved claims.

Well, at least your are best at SOMETHING.
