Our dear Amr whose ancestors the Amazigh were brutalized, murdered and enslaved and then forced to convert to the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only and in the process they were forced to stop speaking their language and were forced to be Arabic speakers right our dear Amr?

Now our dear Amr quote Q109 as evidence that Islam is a religion of tolerance and this is what he wrote

I do not worship what you worship .. neither you worship what I do

1. Now our dear Amr did not tell us that Q109 is called Surat al-Kafiruun or the Chapter of the Unbelievers so why did you not tell the readers that this Sura is called Surat al-Kafiruun?

2. Now who are really al-Kafiruun? Well as usual is Islam no one has a clue but if we trun to al-Qurtubi and Ibn Kathir they tell us that al-Kafiruun are the pagans of Mecca as well as the Jews and the Christians right? But wait your Allah says in Q14:4 that he leads astray whom ever he wants so if the pagans of Mecca as well as the Jews and Christians are Kuffar then we can only blame Allah for making them kuffar

Does this make any sense to you that Allah makes them kuffar then he is mocking them? But again the author of the Qur'an was not a systematic theolgian

3. How about the Hindus and the Buddhists? are they kuffar too? and why is Allah silent about them? could it be because your so called Allah is an Arabian deity that knew nothing beyond Arabia?

4. But here is the ultimate disaster and it is the last aya in the Sura and here is the aya in Arabic so no one can say that we kuffar make things up:

لكم دينكم ولي دين

Or Lakum Deenakum wa leya DEEN

Or لكم means and to you

دينكم Could very well mean and to you your religion

Here is the real disaster the word Deenankum here has no clear meaning and we are told that it very well could be al-Qurtubi suggests that the word جزاء (what befalls you) is missing before the word Deenakum

What a disaster al-Qurtubi is fixing Allah's poor syntax

ولي or Wa Leya means And to me

دين or Deen and it means religion but this is a linguistic disaster because this is how I would translate this little gem

And to you your religion and to me RELIGION

And as usual in Islam al-Mufasereen come to the rescue and al-Qurtubi tells us that the word دين or Deen which is the last word in the verse there a letter ya missing and that it should be ديني or Deeni or my religion

So you tell us our dear Amr what happened to the missing Ya or ي ? was the ي also eaten by a hungry goat like the one that ate Ayat Irda3 al-Kabeer or ayat al-Rajm? and how come Allah is not able to protect his revelation from a hungry goat?

So let me fix this poor Arabic as per al-Qurtubi

ولكم دينكم ولي ديني

Or And to you your religion and to me MY religion

What a disaster

4. But here is the ultimate disaster and read that al-Qurtubi tells us about this disaster and this is what he says so you do not tell us that we kuffar make things up

وقيل السورة كلها منسوخة

Or and it has been said that the ENTIRE Sura was ABROGATED

What a disaster the Sura is abrogated it means that it should not be in the Qur'an and it should not be quoted so why do you quote a Sura that has been abrogated as evidence you tell us!

But wait Shiekh al-Azhar has the answer and it is if all the abrogated verses in the Qur'an are to be removed the Qur'an would shrink to the size of a little كراسة or booklet

So how come you did not know that al-Qurtubi tells us that the whole Sura has been abrogated? Could it be because you really did not know which means that you are and you must pardon me ignorant or could it be that you knew and you were hoping that we kuffar do not know but this would mean that you are not telling us the truth so which one is it?

Oh next? اقانيم الله and could Allah be a مكار and also صادق unless we have more tha one Allah so do we have more than one Allah?

I will be waiting for your answer with great anticipation
