"Your Arabic is bogus".

Define bogus.

As for me I can not Read, Write and Speak Arabic beside Quran Hadith and Common Arabic books.

"The word al-ghazwa means the invasion and the plural is al-maghazi or the invasions! Shame on you for debating a language that you do not know"!

For sure, not debating on the word but let you know (in principal) that words have shades when translated from one language to another. There are other meanings maghazi as well. of And you already know it, I am just pointing to it.

My love to you.
