Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Nov 19, 2008 at 07:55

Our dear Samer who now realizes that he cannot get away with his little game and who did not know that the Arabic word bitaanah means the lining of his coat wrote

>You should check the meaning of Dahaha in Lane Williams Arabic Lexicon Year 1860, a very comprehensive arabic-english dictionary of 12 volumes

Could you give me the page number?And you either put up or shut up.

>Also you should check what the Libyans and north africans say about the eggs ,

And what does this have to do with Hijazi Arabic?

> how they pronounce the word egg in arabic (Dahi),

Mr. ignorant if you care to learn for example Egyptian Arabic you will realize that it is full of non Arabic words that do not mean much for non Egyptian Arabs eg; tomatoes is bandora or tamatim in Modern Arabic and it is outa in Egypt which is an Egyptian/Coptic word for fruit. So what does Libyan Arabic have to do with Hijazi Arabic ?

>also you should look at an ostrich egg and see the difference between it and a small bird or chicken egg how it looks like - it is flat in both polesalso you should look at the resemblence between and egg and the earth in terms of structure, they are similar - the shell-crust , the the white and the mantle and the yolk and the core

Now here is a callenge for you: where would I find in tafseer that the word DHHA (i'm only using the rasm) means the egg of an ostrich? you either put up or shut up
