Do you have any more straw men you care to share?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: Our dear Zzazz and more bogus falsafa

Ya ustadh "Dhimmi", Shukran Jazeelan lijawabatak. Thanks for your kindly posting a logical fallacy known as a "Straw Man", as you have completely misconstrued my points.

In English, we do not refer to to God in the definite form. This is a matter of SEMANTICS, not that my claim is "bogus" as you say (without having really proved, by the way).

So you don;t like my citing of wikipedia. Here is the exact same point that I made, but this time using Britannica.: http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9005770/Allah

Just what have you cited to support YOUR argument, ya ustadh??? Would you care to enlighten us as to why you feel compelled not only to make such points, but to attack me in the process? How immature can you get? Or should I say "bogus" as you did?

I think it is better to say that Arabic is RELATED to Syriac (and also Hebrew), rather than to claim that it is simply "borrowed". After all the Arabs and their Arabic language has been around a lot longer than Islam itself, if I'm not mistaken.
