My dear Avenger, now let us examine your little mu'azzi (sic) or mu3azzi. You claim that the word mu3azzi means: the comforter or Muhammad or is it Ahmad or is it Abul Qasim.

Yes the word Mu3azzi could mean the comforter but it takes on a very different meaning in modern Arabic and it would mean: He who provides condolences (in the case of al-3aza'! The Arabic word 3Aza' means: ceremony of mourning! So you can see that if you tell an Arab that you the Avenger is a mu3azzi the question will be: "then who died in the family?" Or you the avenger who knows no Arabic will be called al-mu3azzi if you go to a ceremony of al-3aza' or the Arabic ceremony of mourning! So do you still think that Abul Qasim is mu3azzi!

(see Hans Wehr Dictionary page 612A: 3aza', ta3ziya, mu3az)

Do you see how ridiculous is your command of Arabic?

On the other hand The word yurariah (he who provides comfort) from raha or comfort is the word to use to describe the comforter.

So far your Arabic as well as your falsafa are bogus.

Stay tuned for Alcohol and Allah!
