self-evaluation - rarely accurate

Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History
in response to reader comment: Got Cha! Answer for Dhimmi ...

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Dec 25, 2011 at 22:33

Mr Riaz writes:

"...Do you call petty personal insults reams of them repeated with each posts .... as logical and rational?"

Do you mean your own personal insults - or Dhimmis vigorous though accurate responses?

".....He he he - ha ha ha got you! ..."

Let's see - late teens to mid twenties - right?

"........I have DEFEATED Dhimmi - countless times. I have DEMONSTRATED how ..."

In your own estimation - most surely - but it's best to let others be the judge of that.

For a person who claims to be born in England - Mr Riaz continually demonstares poor grammatical skills. Typos can be forgiven (I'm as guilty as anyone on that front) - but the repeated absence of the indefinite and definite articles and many other faux pas point to maybe a lack of education , a good education but with poor teachers, living amongst a group of people with similar poor habits or actually not having English as a first language.

Aside from this minor point - Dhimmi's arabic language skills clearly surpass Mr Riaz's. Would Mr Riaz agree? This has been demonstrated time and time again in response to muslims on this blog whose first language is arabic.

I'll make it clear right now - I have zero arabic language skills so cannot hold myself out to be any sort of expert in this area. However, as Mr Riaz mentions - there are websites which authored by arabic language speakers - many of them ex-muslims - who clearly and cogently highlight the various errors and inconsistencies in the Koran. These people have no agenda other than to bring to public awareness some of the ridiculous claims of their former 'religion' - which they have finally been allowed to break free from now that they are living in the West.

They have nothing to gain by lying and are not outwitting themselves in trying to defend indefensible fables. Their whole lives and raison d'etre will not fall to pieces if the Koran is proved to be a manmade fiction based on earlier scriptures of other religions.
