Mr Riaz has it in his mind that GIK is here to defend Dhimmi. That is a false assertion.

Clearly Dhimmi's arabic language skills do exist. It is unknown whether A.R. has ANY Arabic language skills at all.

The corrections A.R. made to GIK's sentences were mostly corrections to typos and double typing and not fundamental errors of grammar.

Notice that A.R. - even after been having shown his obvious and fundamental grammatical errors - has never admitted to making them - let alone offering an explanation.

In regards to grammar etc - we'll settle with his closing sentence which he quotes from GIK.:

So which is it - a lack of education , a good education but with poor teachers, living amongst a group of people with similar poor habits or actually not having English as a first language?

The examples given show fundamental errors of grammar and would tend to indicate the latter.

And while parroting back the sentences with trivial corrections like capitalising the 'M' in muslim such as :

"......What is puzzling though is why Muslims are on blogs like this making ridiculous claims and defending ridiculous claims of things they have never witnessed, splitting hairs over arabic grammar and etc. Yet they do absolutely nothing about their fellow believers strewn across the globe who are causing pain and suffering to living human beings today....."

- Mr. A. R. completely ignores the point and fails to answer the question posed in the sentence itself. Mr. A.R. is indeed happier splitting hairs and bothering with trivial issues of syntax than making any real contribution to doing anything about allaying the suffering caused by muslims to other people (muslims or not).
