Our dear Zzazz and speaking of qash wa tibn

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: Do you have any more straw men you care to share?

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Feb 15, 2008 at 20:43

So what did we learn from our dear Zzazz ? Let me help you: Nothing not a thing

>Ya ustadh "Dhimmi", Shukran Jazeelan lijawabatak.

Al-3afw ya roh baba

> Thanks for your kindly posting a logical fallacy known as a "Straw Man", as you have completely misconstrued my points.

And the fallacy is?

>In English, we do not refer to to God in the definite form.

The language here is Arabic ya roh baba it is not English

>This is a matter of SEMANTICS, not that my claim is "bogus" as you say (without having really proved, by the way).

Semanitcs? and proved what? that you have no clue or that you have no clue? so which one is it?

>So you don;t like my citing of wikipedia. Here is the exact same point that I made, but this time using Britannica.: http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9005770/Allah

Bogus again. Your source ya roh baba should be ma3ajim wa qawamees 3arabiya wa suryaniya. Why is it so difficult for Muslims to use these great inventions called ma3ajim wa qawamees.

>Just what have you cited to support YOUR argument, ya ustadh??? Would you care to enlighten us as to why you feel compelled not only to make such points,

To make what points? That you are and you must pardon me:ignorant?

> but to attack me in the process? How immature can you get? Or should I say "bogus" as you did?

Ah so it is all about ego and not about the truth. Very typical Muslim attitude

>I think it is better to say that Arabic is RELATED to Syriac (and also Hebrew), rather than to claim that it is simply "borrowed". After all the Arabs and their Arabic language has been around a lot longer than Islam itself, if I'm not mistaken.

Let me repeat it one more time the word Allah is a loan word from Syriac and it cannot be a contraction of the word al-Ilah as the word Allah means: God and not the God. Now prove me wrong

And like I say: You are here defending the religion of the Hijazi Arabs that more likely than not brutalized your ancestors. Shame

Qash wa tibn? May be you need to read a good dictionary ya roh baba
