A quick summary

in response to reader comment: still no answer?

I have answered this ... but I do NOT control when my answers are posted.

Let me summarize:

You do not understand the Arabic language.

You present a judgement of Arabs - then call Arabic weak - and this your argument. Which is illogical argument. Because to call Arabic weak - you need linguistic evidence for it being weak.

You have no knowledge about Arabic - and you have not read a single book about it.

You have very little knowledge about Arabic - you do not even know what language they speak.

You formed your ignorant view first about Arabic - then tried to find evidence - all you came up was a few wiki and other references - talking about

Then you claimed "presumption" on those basis that Arabic is weak.

You have found no academic support at all - and you in your stupidity - you tried to dismiss that all Academics/Scholars are prejudiced - which is a strange and stupid view. Because then you do a U-turn and claim evidence and give few website addresses - such as wiki the fact book. Why?

You give an analogy of "poor tools" - yet you do not know why Arabic is a poor tool - for the analogy to work one has to have knowledge for comparison analysis - yet you openly say you have no knowledge of Arabic.
