>Our dear maria Khan, but you ain't no Arab either, so what is really your point ?

I sure ain't an Arab :) you got that right. My point is, you mentioned;

"it says in Arabic a language that you cannot read because you ain't no Arab"

which implies you have to be an Arab to understand Arabic.

It would help our dear maria who ain't no Arab but a wannabe Arab

> But what about them people

Oh I love it: "them people" and you aint' American either

>who ain't Arabs but can speak Arabic fluently as if its their first language i.e. people who have gained a degree in Arabic?

Really? But you are not one of "them people" either our dear Maria and this is what matters. And sorry but your Allah speaks no Urdu!

Well let me paraphrase what I wrote: You ain't no Arab and you do not speak, write or read Arabic and you ain't one of "them people" either

Why do you live in England our dear maria?
