Dhimmi,

I understand that you were talking about Hijaz. Of course Muhammad lived in Hijaz. Yet you should know full well that he did not stay in one place for all of his lifetime, and was not alone in this regard. It is well known that there was extensive trade between Yemen in the South (frankincense harvested in Hardramawt) , and the North to Syria (perhaps even as far as Aleppo? We do not know every place that Muhammad personally visisted, but there was a lot more movement between cultures and language groups than you seem willing to acknowedge. Therefore your argument is entriely moot (or BOGUS, to use a term that you've nearly beaten to death).

Furthermore, it is not difficult for me to understand that Allah/Alaha/Allaha/Elohim have much in common. It is OLIVER who is having a problem understanding this. Why you feel the need to ascribe this to me is a result of YOUR poor reading comprehension, not mine.

Once again, you keep posting straw men. Do you know what that even means? It means that you intentionally mischaracterize my argument and then pretend to refute a position that I never even took in the first place. Dhimmi, you should know that when you stoop to using such logical fallacies, it only makes you look very foolish.
