Clearly you have trouble with reading

Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs
in response to reader comment: More Fiction (Doctoring Figures)

Submitted by Peter Hall (Australia), Jan 4, 2012 at 18:05

Well Amin, Have you bothered to read the Article you have been commenting about??

Have you? Your statements about my lack of Arabic are truly laughable ... Even the author of this article clearly states that you do not need to understand Arabic, to comment on it. Hence my placing you in the more unintelligent Arabist snob catergory.

Then you go on and say to further show you ignorance

Also that the Top Arabic Author relied on a Government Job until his 60s and only had print runs of 10,000 copies.

Here is your clear lie:

Where am I lying Amin, I said print runs of 10,000, not print run! Do you not understand that an s at the end of a word makes it a plural? Do you know what a plural is? Some linguist your are Amin, talk about going off with your mouth frothing on a tangent. Do you have not shame? Or is this more Taqiyya?

It would be obvious to any reader with half a brain that my 200 million figure was an error, what benefit would I derive from exaggerating the numbers of books printed by an Arabic author? Tell me? Yet your response to this obvious error is to carry on and trying to twist and obvious error into something it clearly is not.

Submitting....
