To Abdul Muiiz

Your title-wording "Lactantius Jr.....bully?"does me an injustice Abdul, but be that as it may, I thank you for your greeting of peace, and gladly greet you with the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

Whatever Nadias's ‘understanding' is grounded in, and if you are saying Nadia is an academic ‘with well-grounded knowledge,' she doesn't need you to respond on her behalf Abdul, saying herself that "when a little research is done, anyone can prove my little facts wrong," although not attempting to "prove my little facts wrong" herself

My response to Nadia wasn't "throwing a challenge," it was correcting her assertions about Muslim men and wife-beating, Muhammad and his partiality in the treatment of his wives, Muhammad and slaves, recycling of apocryphal stories in the Qur'an, and that Christianity and Islam "share the same roots."

How is using Islam's most authoritative sources, that is the Qur'an and Qur'anic Tafsir, Sahi Hadith, Sirat and Ta'rikh literature in correction of Nadia's wrongful assertions, "intimidation" Abdul?

Like you, I hope we get the chance to finish, but despite appearances that my lengthy email to Nadia may have created, I really am too busy to have done it, I shouldn't have spent time I really don't have in preparing my posting to her, without first having responded to your email to me dated 17th.January 2008, and I apologise to you for not having done so. I will respond to you ASAP.

With kind regards and best wishes

Lactantius Jr.
