My dear Avenger I'm not really finished with you as of yet so we need to talk about your bogus understanding of proper names Biblical or otherwise and your poor command of linguistics.

1. Well let us start with Arabic a language that you do not know I'm sure that you are aware that there is no letter P in Arabic so what would Arabs do in such case as in Peter? Well Petros or Peter becomes Boutros, So do you think that Peter would have any clue what the word Boutros realy means?

There is no letter V in Arabic so Victoria becomes Fictoria. Nothing wrong with that and I'm sure Queen Victoria would have cared less if the Arabs call her Fictoria!

Now let us go a little bit more in Arabic we will talk about the letter Jeem. Jeem is vocalized as Jeem as in Jamal 3Abd al-Nasser except in the Egyptian dialect where the letter Jeem is vocalized as: Geem (this is from the Egyptian/Coptic letter Ginga) so we have Gamal 3Abd al-Nasser and the Geem here is Geem mu3atasha (do you know what is really geem mu3atasha? I do not think so) as in the word: Game. Now names like Margaret pose funny problems for the Arabic language. The Egyptians will vocalize it as: Margareet but the rest of the Arabs will vocalize it as: Marghareet where the letter G becomes Arabic Ghain as the Arabic letter Jeem would not convey the proper sound G in Margaret. Nothing wrong with that except in the eyes of people like yourself that have no clue about languages and voclalizations.

Now another example: the langauage Bengali would be vocalized in Arabic as: Benghali norice the letter ghain as the letter G in Bengali would be vocalized as Arabic ghain! Do you follow me or are you that clueless?

So your little bogus diatribe betrays your total ignorance of basic linguistics.

2. Did you ever think why you tablighees that speak Urdu do not use definite article "al" before the word let us say: Qur'an or hadith? And why is Abd Allah becomes Abd ul Allah? No I do not know Urdu and do not wish to learn it!

3. Now biblical names in the Qur'an come from Syriac and not from Hebrew (gasp)

Solomon or Sulayman in Arabic is from Syriac Slymaan and not from Hebrew slomoh and if you read Q27:15 the rasm of the name is: SLMN which is for sure not Slomoh and you can also see the brazen 3Ulama adding the following to the defetive rasm:

S they added a damma so now we have: Su

L they added a fatha so now we have: La

Then they added two dots between the lam and the meem and now we have a yeh and a sukun or: Y

Then they edited the book of your Allah by adding a long alif above the letter meem and this alif is indeed the penultimate that this is from Syriac and now we have: Maa

Then they added a damma above the nuun and now we have: N (and add I3rab)

Or: Sulaymaan and do you think that Slomoh would be surprised that your Allah and his rasul call him: Sulayman from Syriac? It seems that your Allah borrowed such proper name from Syriac.

I can give you more exmaples if you wish but you will be wasting my time and yours as you know no Syriac or Arabic or hebrew or Greek for this matter or even linguistics but you still have the audacity to babble in something that is far beyond your limited education and silly polemics.

Now let us switch to Qur'an 12:5 where we have the name ABRHM (the defective rasm) and now we have the follwoing added by the brazen 3Ulama while editing the book of your Allah:

They add a kasra below the alif and now we have: I

Then they add a sukun above the beh and now we have the: B

Then they add an alif after the reh and now we have: RA

And then they add a fatha above the yeh and and the meem and now we have: HIM

Or IBRAHIM

The way it is written in the Qur'an betrays its Syriac origin of Ibrahim and not Ibraham.

But wait if the 3Ulama have no clue if the word MLK in Surat al-Fatiha is Maaliki (the owner of) or Maliki (the king of) one can very much read the name Ibrahim in the Qur'an as: Ibraham

Alif with a kasra: I

Beh with a sukun: B

Reh with an alif: RA

Heh with and alif: HA

meem with a sukun: M

Or Ibraham! So congratulations my dear the avenger it seems that the Quranic Ibrahim is in actual fact Ibraham!

So much for your bogus linguistics.

Now do you know what the word Churzpah really means?

Stay tuned for more!
