Hi ,

"And if you did read the article then why not refute what they are saying? Let me guess becuase you cannot right?"

My Answer : Give me that article translated in English , I need it in English since I am still a beginenr in Arabic or German for that matter. Only then I can comment about it.

"For the readers Gerd Puin was the "old German" that was selceted by our dear Deb the wannabe Arab Arab masters in Sana' in-order to read and restore the Sana' Quranic leafs now why did they not ask a tablighhe like you to do such a job? Could it be because you do not know any Arabic ... ?"

My Answer : First of all who cares about what the authorities in Sana wants to do with that Gerd Puin ? Remember many intellectuals in the Western World have said that Holocaust did not happen at all. I consider Gerd Puin in that same category. Do you get it ?

"It is built like a Byzantine Church! It does not even look like a mosque"

My Answer : You have only one so-called "proof " to prove to the whole world that early Muslims were Christians. Let me summarize the "proof" for you.

You believe that the Al-Aqsa is a Byzantine Church since it looks like Hagia Sofia Church in Byzantine.

My view is that it does not matter about the shape of a Mosque. There is nothing in Quran or Hadhith to justify that the Mosques should follow only a particular architecture. The prophet himself said that the whole world is a mosque for the believer so that he can pary anywhere he wants to. Do you get that clear ? So any Muslim is justified in making a mosque in whatever shape he wants. I can convert my own home into a mosque. I can even pray at the Capitol Hill or White House and those buildings also can be considered as a mosque.

Another point even if we go your way of thinking , remember that the U.S. Supreme court building looks like a Greco-Roman structure. Does that mean the early founding fathers were either Greeks or Romans ?

"OK let me help you: do you have any extant evidence that would support that such characters did exist? Here is your chance to shine our dear deb al-tablighee and I will be watching you making a fool of yourself again"

My Answer : I have given you all the evidence a rational man needs to understand about the truth of the existence of Calipha Al-Rashidun.

See my faith is not dependent upon the existence of Calipha Al-Rashidun. Because remember I do worship only Allah and not the servants of Allah.

And I care less if Paul Revere did or did not shout his "the Brits are coming"

But you know what? I'm here to dismantle the foundation of the religion of the Arabs"

My Answer : As long as I live , I will have faith in the oneness of Allah and in the infallibility of his Quran.

Many people have tried to dismantle the foundation of Islam. You are not the first one and you will not be the last one. Here are some of them , St. John of Damascus , Dante Alighieri , Martin Luther , Tom Jeffy (Thomas Jefferson) , Winston Churchill , Jerry Falwell and so on. Now tell me what happened to this fellows ? Who gives a damn about these peoples' views on Islam now days ? Same is going to happen to you .

"when those Muhajiruun (later known as Arabs and Muslims) invaded the civilized Middle East"

My Answer : Hello : the Muslims did not invade any land whatsoever. They were threatened by the Byzantine and Persian empires from both sides. They just fought the war for survival agaisnt these empires and they won , thanks to Allah.

Remember even after the Muslims were victorious nothing happened to the newly subject Byzantine and Persian peoples. They lived peacefully and prospered under the Muslim rule.In fact if you look at the history at the time , the whole Middle East was getting devastated into a empirical war between the Byzantines and the Persian empires. It was the Muslims who brought peace to the region and ensured that civilization survived and flourished again.

I would like to point to you that it is your anglo-saxon forefathers who invaded what we call now America and exterminated the native American population and founded what we call now USA. You people do not have any right therefore to call anyone , as invaders or occupiers.

Now tell me what has your American civilization has brought to the world apart from War and destruction ?
