"And the entery for the word اسم or name you will get Syriac: ܫܡ or shm or ܫܡܐ shma and in both Arabic and Syriac the "in the" means ب or B and in Syriac it is ܒ or and you guessed it B"

Ha ha ha ha . . . . Oh dear . . . your NONSENSE . . . is falling down AROUND your ears. . . now - as i have said. There is NO word called Bishm

. . . Even you ADMIT it. . . ha ha ha - this is too funny.
