More hot Air Amin

You gave the names of many Authors, and NO NUMBERS Your Top Author only has managed print runs of 10,000 copies. This PROVES that Arabic is not a language that people want to read. it shows it is a weal language when it comes to literature. I have already shown how weak Arabic is in the sciences, and how weak it is academically. I ask for one fact Amin, just one single fact that supports your claims. Your claim that Classical Arabic has been read by all of Europe is now looking like hot air. Your claim of great Arabic literature is looking the same if no one reads it. You are looking like hot air if the only response you have is going on about laser, which obviously is a challenge in Arabic. No facts, = NO PROOF.
