Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs
in response to reader comment: Taqiyya Amin strikes again, and again, and again

You couldn't even argue without lying, name calling, stereotyping, prejudice and petty personal insults. That is illogical.


If I am good at lying .... list them. With evidence where I have lied. And I mean lying not supposed lies...

I have asked you this before - you haven't managed it. But repeat the feeble assertion.

Such as the one where you changed your story over the word LASER. Or you doctored 60 million to 200 million.

It easy to call people people a liar - harder to prove it.

And you are nothing but a nasty and vile person. Given your tendency to lie, insult, name call... and etc.


Well Amin, Have you bothered to read the Article you have been commenting about??

Have you? Your statements about my lack of Arabic are truly laughable ... Even the author of this article clearly states that you do not need to understand Arabic, to comment on it. Hence my placing you in the more unintelligent Arabist snob catergory.

Here you lie again. Another one to the elongating list - you lack of Arabic knowledge is to do with your defining Arabic as weak.

The above was the full comment - a) I did not comment to the article - but to your ignorant assertion.

b) It is not the Arabic - but about Arabic and Arab world. You need to have knowledge about your subject. I have asked you this over and over again. You couldn't name a single book you read about the subject.

Hence views out of ignorance. Pretending that it is only you lack of Arabic i laugh at. Not it is the no knowing much about Arabic as a language.

You find basic facts about the Arab world - then allege it is the weakness of the Arabic language. The two are different arguments. I keep asking you this. What is is it about Arabic the language that it is weak. This is a linguistic question. Yet you have given no evidence. Other than calling Academia "Prejudiced" in stupidity.

Then you wrap all this with some pretty ignorant opinions - below are some I have asked for evidence - yet you have not answered yet:


Tell me Taqiyya Amin, how have I lied? I have been honest, and used available evidence.

So where is that formula .... by which you proclaimed Arab countries had literacy levels of 10%. Whilst that is not what the figures show.


India and China militaries are both equipped with huge numbers of low-tech equipment.



J K Rowlings has written a series of children's books that collectively, would have been printed more copies that the total number of books printed by the whole Arabic world combined.



All the Arabic writers have been doing the last few decades is copying a style of writing that is Western in nature, not Arabic.
