Talmud, I hear, comes from the word "lamad" which means "to learn."
Taliban is derived from the Arabic word "talaba" which means "to seek" & the "-an" is a suffix that makes the word plural.
I don't remember what this person said exactly to make the linguistic connection. Maybe he was wrong? I don't know Hebrew, Aramaic, or Arabic.
