My dear Harrak your assertions are nothing short of being bogus.

When you wrote Philo and with your lame execuse you reminded me of Zakir Naik's, the tablighee, little problem with his last name. I understand that during a speech that he was giving in Cairo no one was willing to use his last name as the poor guy's last name "Naik" is a very vulgar Arabic word! May be you can go and ask your Mullah to tell you what it means. I suspect that the poor chap knows by now what the word Naik really means.

So when you use the word Philo in the context of the Greek learning you did not realize that there was a very famous Jewish writer by the name of Philo that wrote in Greek and lived in Alexandria. This reflects poorly on your education. And then you have the audacity to give us an opinion about such topic as the transmission of the Greek learning? Shame!

You did not even know with your silly "mytho" that Arabs were not interested in the least in translating the Greeks drama and myth? But you still included the "mytho" out of yout total ignorance of the subject. And how about your funny Arabic "footnotes" wher would I find them in let us say the "Iliad"?

As for Hunein the Nestorian he was translating the Greek works into Syriac. However, as we are told the great al-Khalifa la-Ma'moon who was a Persian and not an Arab in his heart and soul invited him to work in Dar al-Hikam as a _doctor/physician_ which he was and not as a translator.

And why do you assume that we the readers will undestand the Quebec's "Mytho and Philo thing"? Did you ever hear of "never multiply entities"? So much for Muslim education.

And to add insult to injury the sentence did not make any sense the Philo and "Mytho" (sic) but I'm not here to correct your poor syntax.

So Sibawayhe was Persian or Afghani so what is your problem? But you know what? the father of the Arabic language was even not even an Arab!

Without the Persians Islam would not be what it is! The Arabs? Like I said they were busy looting and enslaving and raping and collecting the jizya!

Now you come here and tell us that it was Arabs/Muslims that translated the Greeks works to Arabic and I'm telling you that your claim is nothing but fraudulent.

If you detest the West so much why do you live in Quebec? Wanna share?
