Hi Lactantius

>Thank you for commenting as you have done about a goat (or was it a sheep?)

Well let us see the word goat means maa3iz or 3anza or tayees and the word sheep means shah or ghanam or daan also daani and like I always tell anyone who is not familiar with the Islamic historical sources when read in Arabic that you will find just about anyhting so it can be a mi3za or 3anza (singular for goat) or shah (sheep) and do not forget that there is only one but not the other here and what the islamic historical tradition is saying is that the aya was lost and when the logical question to follow is how come? the answer would be to find something to blame so the goat or the sheep is to blame and you pick which one you want

Ridiculous but true

>eating the Qur'anic "revelations" on stoning (Al-Rajam)

And speaking of Arabic: it is al-rajm there is neithr an alif nor a fatha following the jeem or Reh fatha jeem meem (see HW page 329B)

>and suckling (Rajeata),

The tradition is called rida3at al-kabeer or the breast feeding of the adult and the credit goes to Father Zakaria Botros for telling the whole world about such a ridiculous tradition

those "revelations" obviously not appearing in present-day Qur'ans. I was of course aware of the incident of "the hungry goat," (or sheep),

Well if you listen to Father Zakaria Botros' Arabic he seems to use both which means that there are traditions (as strange as it might sound) as being a goat or a sheep

>entering Aisha's house, and eating the material which contained the verses on stoning and suckling, but my focus was on the original "burn the Qur'an day," ordered by Caliph Uthman,

Oh yes and i wanted to add verses from the Qur'an written on palm leaves were eaten by hungry goats or sheep and what a scandal! I'm just being sarcastic of islam and muslims

>and I now think it well worthwhile to comment on the disparity between burning/desecrating Qur'ans and Bibles, both here in the UK and in the US, demonstrating how dhimmification proceeds apace on both sides of the Atlantic.

I agree with you and I would say that we in the US are not as bad as you are in the UK as we have very loud critics of Islam and I will be after islam until it is a relic of the past and it will happen

My last point Christians in the West should learn from Father Zakaria Botros and be more sarcastic of what the Islamic sources tell us which is always ridiculous and when Muslims threaten him he always tell them "I'm only telling you what your sources tell us and if you do not like it then destory them" and I would add to this and good riddance
