Karen Armstrong the wannabe historian admits in her little biogrpahy of Muhammad that she does not speak, read or write arabic and then she also makes it very clear that without Rodison's and Watt's biopgraphies of Muhammad her work would not have been possible.

Do you know what this means? It means that this ignorant woman is writing a biography without reading the pirmary sources in their primary language Arabic that is and that her little bogus biography is no more than a book review of Rodison and watt's biographies of Muhammad

And you know what is most damaging to the credibility of this woman? She seems to be unaware of the recent advances in the study of ealy islam by Wansbrough, Crone, Goldziher, etc....

And you know what? her ultimate humiliation is that no under-graduate or graduate program here in the US use her horrible book in a class

And now trun to page 12 and you will find our dear karen Armstrong telling us that female genital mutilation is not Islamic then she tells us that that US feminists are to be blamed for telling us that Islam promotes FMG then she tells us that one school of islamic law allows such barbarity but she never tells us the name of such school. Go figure

But the most damaging thing is that she wrote that the Qur'an is silent about female circumcision therefore there is no place for FMG in Islam but what this ignorant woman did not seem to know is that the Qur'an is also silent about male circumcision. So much for ignorance of this woman

But the surprisng thing is how does she get her books published in the first place?

How come you did not know that our dear sTs aka samer who is not man enough to admit that he does not know any Qurnic Arabic as in adna v. al-adna? Shame on you
