My poor Taqiyya Amin. Lost and confused again !

You really just do not have a clue do you!

I did not say the article we are commenting on, states Arabic is weak. I said the article states you do not need to be an expert on Arabic to comment on it. It says that the attitude; that you need to be an expert on Arabic to comment on Arabic, is held by Arabist Snobs!! Therefore I am agreeing with the Author of the article, and calling you an Arabist Snob! Do you follow me Taqiyya Amin?

It was my original comment, which 16 people have agreed to so far, that stated Arabic was a weak language. You obviously have trouble with numbers as you are inaccurate by a factor of 400%(you claim only 4 readers support) and following lines of thought.

Do you understand, Taqiyya Amin, your error? Or is this more Taqiyya for when you have no answer? Are you trying to confuse the readers, or are you just plain confused. You really seem to have difficulties in separating segments of an argument, do you have concentration problems?

You keep repeating the argument, that because I cannot read nor write Arabic, I can not comment on it and form an accurate conclusion. I point out that this very article refutes that argument of yours! Yet you do not seem to grasp the point, but go off on another tangent.

Your attempts to cover your absence of facts is clearly showing, even other readers have noticed your lack of substance. I think you have embarrassed yourself enough as it is, Taqiyya Amin. Maybe its time for your nap.

Well Taqiyya Amin, when I encounter someone as arrogant as you, who makes so many big claims and has so little to back them up, I feel justified in my comments. I have noted you numerous attempts to bully when others do not hold the same view as you.

If a person acts like a fool, I have no problem calling them a fool. If someone claims to be superior to me in something and boast what a great linguist they are, I have no problem calling them into account. Your superior English has been systematically shown to be a hollow boast. Your boasts of how superior Arabic is to English as been dismissed in a similar way, and your attacks on me have been returned in kind. Hence, you are Taqiyya Amin! Live with it or adjust your attitudes.

Next time you attack a person's English, maybe you should be better prepared when they laugh at your spelling and lack of punctuation. When you say someone has no facts, maybe you should have some yourself. Maybe when you ask for "just one scholar" you should be prepared for them to find one. Maybe when you comment on an article, you should be prepared for that person to use your own tactics against you and hold you up to scrutiny.

I am always prepared to have my own views altered when presented with facts and logical conclusions. However, I will not change my views when confronted with wanna be bullies. Your dismissive response to my original comment has backfired, and now you just look plain silly Taqiyya Amin.
