in response to reader comment: I am OPENLY LAUGHING ...

I asked for Proof Amin, none of the books you mentioned have any print runs that would indicate all of Europe has read them, to be honest I can find no data to show their print runs at all ! This does not mean they do not exist, it just means not many have been printed.

Agatha Christine has a single book ( and then they were none) with over 100 million copies sold, not how many books have these collective unknowns had printed and sold, are these the writers you claim all of Europe has read? Are you on some form of medication?

Your lie about all of Europe having read Classical Arabic is looking very exposed.

Provide facts my hollow little man, provide evidence to support you stance, not just drop a few names that are relatively unknown, put up or shut up.

You keep asking for evidence and harping on, I have asked for the same thing 6 times and each time you slime away from a response.

Who are the Arabic Authors you claim are so well known and how many books have been printed and sold? The question is in response to your claim all of Europe has read classical Arabic. Now if they have only printed a few thousand copies, your claim for nearly 1 billion people to have read them will be exposed as a boast of a moron with no evidence and makes things up.

I also asked for authors and print runs of Arabic books that are recent, because my research shows no one reads Arabic literature, not even Arabs. You again have slimed away from answering that one too, after saying I do not know what I am talking about.

Well Amin, name the Author title and print runs of these great modern Arabic nooks that millions have read? Name them or admit Arabic literature is dead and has been for centuries.

Provide proof, not hot air. The Absence of modern Arabic literature shows it is dead, prove me wrong with facts not BS and bluster.

Still awaiting a fact from you Amin, are you going to provide one or go off on another tangent?

You referred me to Wikipedia for some basic education on Arabic, I laughed after reading the information of the link you provided.

Did you bother to read then whole article? Did you miss the section on The decline of Arabic?

I guess your limited English language skills may be the reason, but you seem to have provided a link to data that confirms my position, not yours!

You keep boasting about your linguistic( Liguistic, that is how you spelt it) skills, and how knowledgeable you are.

BTW Amin, you were the one boasting about your superior English Language skills, do not cry and carry on when I call you to account for your non existent punctuation, poor grammar and spelling. You were the one boasting, not me. I Just showed again how full of hot air you truly are!

So Amin, I ask again, who are the authors, name of title and print runs for your dead language?

Provide the facts, put up or shut up!
