My dear harrak,I'm going to be blunt:

1. You do not know any Arabic or Syriac (remember your little gem" Eli Eli lama sabachtani"?) or French for this matter and your English syntax is poor but this does not stop you from pretending to be a big 3Alim!

2. You do not know any thing about the transmission of the Greek learning but that did not stop you from writing that Muslims/Arabs translated the Greek learning (including your funny and fraudulent footnotes) including translations of Greek myth and drama and Greek philosophy. Your claim here is bogus.

And here is your lesson again:

Translations from Greek to Arabic were conducted by Nestorian Christians that is (and not by Muslims or even by Arabs who were busy collecting al-jizya, raping, enslaving poor infidels, destroying civilizations etc... and claiming that all these crimes were done in the name of their Allah). And we know who really translated these texts and on top of the list were Hunein and the Bukhtishos family. The translation here were via Syriac. And the translations were limited to science, medicine and math. Nothing about your funny "philo and mytho"! The Arabs had no interest in Greek mythology or drama and as for al-falsafa we had the foolish Islamic dicotomy of:

wahy/tanzeel vs. falsafa/tafkeer a3qlee

and the two in the eyes of Muslims shall never meet! Oh silly me you do not know any Arabic or Syriac and your French is poor and your English synatx is just as poor.

The translations of the Arabic texts of the Greek learning were done in Spain by Jews who were fluent in Arabic. They translated such texts to Catalan and then Christian clergy in Spain translated such texts from Catalan to Latin and to various European languages et voila as they say.

And you know what? Mulsims did not care to learn Latin or Catalan for this matter.

3. Your little foray in French is just as bogus as for your little Fillo (oh the baklava thing again) I mean Philo and mytho and according to my friend (La Quebecoise! See I'm learning some French) and let me repeat betrays your poor Muslim education and it is: philosophie et mythologie grecque. And notice that you did not correct me because you knew that this is the correct French and not your little bogus: mytho and philo!

And the word for today is: Chutzpah

I find it sad that you are out to defend the religion of Islam and Arabian imperialsim that brutlaized your ancestors. Shame.
