Hi Ianus

It does not surprise me in the least. Just watch the remarks that I get when I remind an Indian Muslim or Pakistani that his ancetosrs were Hidnus and they were brutalized by Islam and the Arabs that they are defending

A few days ago I was watching the rantings of an Islamic Egyptian sheikh and he was saying that allah blessed him as his family are the direct decendants of Muhammad! The interesting thing is his family's name is Qinawi which means he who is from Qina and Qina is located in upper egypt and to be more specific in the heart of what I call Coptic Egypt which is the area that extends from Aswan all the way down to Asuit and Qina is mid way so the chances are his ancetsors were not Arabs but Copts. I'm sure the poor guy would have the shock of his life if he is told such fact. And what is most interesting he looks like those ancient Egyptians that you can see itched on Egptian temples. But the ultimate fact is that as per Gason Weitz 92% of Egyptians can trace their ancestors to the Copts as the importation of Arabs to Egypt was very limited

Again the ultimate victim is the one that does not realize that he is really a victim
