It is amazing to discover that a once colleague and ex Egyptian country-man Rashad Khalifa, self-proclaimed " a Messenger of Covenant " , had fooled many naive people. I personally knew Khalifa since we both were Egyptian graduate students of agricultural sciences in USA, 1959-66 in both Arizona and California; in Cairo 1966-68 as researchers at both the Ministry of Agriculture and Ein-Shams University; in Tripoli, Libya, 1975-76, as a professor at Triploi University( myself) and researcher at the Arab Institue for Development (Khalifa).

Khalifa was a master of deception, lying and exploitation all his life. He claimed to be a chemist while the official certificates for Bsc, from Ein-Shams Univ, Cairo, Msc from Univ of Arizona , Tucson, and PhD from Univ of California, Riverside, all state he was an agriculturist-horticulturist, with a speciality in plant physiology, as myself. He defected from Egypt 1968 under the pretext to accompany his American wife for a family visit but never returned to fulfill obligations toward our country as preconditioned within the terms of our governmet scholaship to study abroad. While in Libya, he was contracted as a self-claimed chemist to turn Libya into a protein-rich and exporter country by converting its vast oil resources to animal protein. He never did that, while he abused the good-well of the Libyans delivering TV speeches on ISLAM!.

Suddenly , Khalifa the false chemist turned into a Muslim scholar/theologian deciphering a mysterious divine code of Qur'an based on absurd numerical calculations. He fooled some Muslim countries, particularly Libya and Saudi Arabia from which he received huge amount of money. Khalifa was a typical Jim Jones type misleading and abusing naive followers ....
