Our dear Sophia wrote

>A. I never said I was using an Arabic term.

Hello: you wrote that a Muslim woman means muslimana or did you forget?

> I don't speak Arabic, nor am I of Arab ethnic origin (I'm Scots/English and Spanish).

It is obvious that you do not but that did not stop you from pontificating on a language that you cannot speak right? and did I ask you about your ethnic origin?

> The term 'that was used in my travels in Xinjiang (so I would think it would be in Uighur) is: MUSULMANA. Meaning a woman who is Muslim.

Well your Arab masters call a Muslim woman muslima. You see our dear Sophia those Uighur do not seem to realize just like you that to be a Muslim you must konw a foreign language called Arabic

>B. The writing on the tombs in Xinjiang is in Persian. Persian was the language of the Khanates from which the tombs date. The writing, in Persian, was in KUFIC SCRIPT. Nothing to do with Arabic whatsoever.

There is really Persian written in kufic script? really? and how did you know? Let me guess you were told right?

>C. I am not Muslim. What you said about "Arabic Masters" doesn't seem to even relate to anything I was commenting on.I was commenting on how quickly the Chinese are trying to eliminate the Uighur culture in Xinjiang,

And i was telling you why are you surpised when their masters the Arabs eliminated other non Muslim cultures

>including tearing down historical places. Examples: the old city section of Kashgar and the old Mosque in Hotan. Yes, many other empires and conquerors have done so as well.

Oh so much for Arabian imperlalism and the victims of Arabian imperialism
