Now this time one of her little helpers by the name of Aziz Poonawalla who is really a shi3a astaghfirullah and in typical Muslim fashion he is pontificating about what names would sound in Arabic by his masters the arabs and it is a language that he cannot speak read or write and I call this ignorance

For the readers:

1. There is no letter P in Arabic and the letter beh (B) is used instead however you can also write a beh with three dots under the slope instead of one et voila those that can read know that this letter is not a beh but a P

2. There is the Arabic letter 3ayn and i use number 3 as it is the mirror image of the letter in arabic

3. Arabic has short and long vowles and they are

- fatha and alif are the letters a and aa

-. Damma and waw are the letters u and uu

- kasra and yeh or the letters i and ii

3. one's own accent is a function of the way we use vowels in our primary language or in Arabic lahja and this is why a Brit does not sound like an Australian or a Canadian or an American and this is why a Saudi does not sound like a Tunisian but ignorant people like our dear 3aziz believes that all arabs use the same lahja (read this as accent)

Hello Mr Poonawalla your masters the Arabs would have great difficluty vocalizing your last name in Arabic so let us see in Egypt

1. Your first name would be 3Aziz with 3ayn oh I forgot is there a letter 3any in Urdu?

2. Poonawalla wow a real mouth full this would be

buna wala but do not ask an Egyptian to repeat your name again

Oh and this is where it is heading so our dear el-estaz bun wala tells us that the Arabs would call Robert Spencer: Robert Sbensar and so what?

Well he is ignorant because he does not realize that there is no one Arabic dialect/lahja and in the case of let us say Egypt if you have an educated Egyptian then it would be

1.Ruu birt (reh with a damma followed by a waw then a beh with a kasra then a reh with a sukun and a teh with a sukun) et voila it is Roo bert and more likely than not it would take the Egyptian/French vocalization or Ruu ber and no T at the end

2. Spinsar (seen then then a loan P from English as there is no letter P in Arabic then a kasra then a nuun with a kasra then seen with a fatha and a reh with a sukun)

Et volia Ruu bir or Ruu birt Spinsar

Where did the teh go at the end of his first name? Many educated and almost all uneducated Egyptians would use the Egyptian/French Rober (drop the T at the end)

For uneduacted Egyptians it would be

Ruu bir Zbinsar

So if our dear boon wala is reading this; You need to stick to Urdu mr ignorant

So what does this have to do with this annoying woman? She thinks that our dear boon wala is great

Whatever
