I think it's fairly obvious that the 1st Assembly of God is simply jealous of the work of *Hoter ben Shlomo,* a scholar and philosopher from Yemen<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yemen>
who was heavily influenced by the earlier works of Nethanel ben al-Fayyumi... duh... everybody knows that... but this was new:
The connection between the *"Epistle of the Brethren of Purity<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brethren_of_Purity>
"* and Ismailism <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ismailism> might have suggested the adoption of this work as one of the main sources of what would become known as “*Jewish Ismailism*” as was found in Late Medieval Yemenite Judaism. This “*Jewish Ismailism*” consisted of adapting to Judaism a few Ismaili doctrines about cosmology, prophecy, and hermeneutics. I know, wow!
Steve F, I'm considering hitting up Tiger tomorrow. What do you think about the forecast?
