It is a fact,commonly acknowledged that you should only DESIRE to learn the language of a culture you admire and respect. I therefore am amazed that any intelligent westerner would STILL WANT to delve into the semantics of Arabic.

Really? The start of your sentence is a common logical fallacy. And it is incorrect. It is neither a fact nor commonly acknowledge. What if someone wishes to learn the language to communicate with Christian Arabs? If you genuinely cannot understand why might one learn the language of a culture with out respect for it ....

The ... shows your ignorance and prejudice.



The murder of Tali Hatuel and her girl children, one still unborn, sums up the Muslim "man" to me and always will.

This really shows your greatest ignorance, hate and prejudice.

So by the above logic how would you define for example... the Deir Yassin massacre?
