Cair and other people

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: Dropping names and Si, comprende mucho!

I will indeed try to involve Cair. But I have a sneaking suspicion that you do not actually want to converse with them, you just want to make a mockery of them. And they are not a mockery. So dont call them a mockery in front of me. The people I have met there have been extraordinarily qualified. Their intent is good. Their commitment is true. They are righteous, and they are patriots.

And by the way, again, I do not wish to be Arab.

However, no one can say that if you are not Arab then you cannot know Arabic. If this is true then no one in schools should possibly take foreign language, for it is really useless. Flawed logic. Also, learning the language of another culture does not make one a wannabe. I suppose every person who knows Spanish in Texas in a wannabe Mexican. Flawed logic. I wish to learn Arabic not to be confused with an Arab, but to more thouroughly understand the teachings of God.
