Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Dhimmi, I give up, I can't overpower your ignorance with logic and I won't try anymore.

So our dear Angela went into ghiyab or she disappeared for now.

For the readers: she (Angela that is) does not know any Arabic and she tells us that the word islam really means peace. And I told her to provide us with evidence from the following sources to support her claims:

1. Kutub al-nahw al-3Arabi or the Arabic language books of grammar

2. Qawamees al-lugha al-3Arabiya wa ma3ajim al-lugha al-3arabiya or Arabic dictionaries and Thesaurus

3. The Muslim masora which is the linguistic activity by the Muslim 3Ulama in the 3rd century of islam that involved examination of the language of the Qur'an and therefore the arabic language (syntax, morphology, etymology etc...) and it involves lexical explanation, grammatical analysis and variant readings of the Quranic logias and pericopes (See QS page 202).

Angela was also told that the following sources will not be regarded as evidence:

1. wikipedia.

2. Tendentious Muslim web sites

3. Our dear Angela's EDUCATED Muslim friends.

Is this asking for too much? I'm still waiting for the answer from our hidden Imam.
