Well Amin. You prove once again that you should quit while behind you are pretty proud ... otherwise why would you keep showing... ?

You say

Then why is that EVERY single response from you is filled with personal attack... just read the above...

I have twice/thrice pointed out that it is a logical fallacy....

Well Amin, if it is a logical fallacy, why do you start with personal attacks then? I am only doing what you did?

Do you not recall your very first comment to me?

You get many such comments on this site - that have no basis in reality. One wonders at the mind coming up with such drivel. Why bother? Peter Hall - does not know 2 things about Arabic. Yet he has a an opinion.... this is one major objection I have with democracy. Such people have the VOTE

Now are you crying foul of personal attacks? Taqiyya Amin is sulking? Live with it loser, if you start personally attacking someone why are you so amazed? I am amazed such people like are are allowed to vote? I am amazed you are amazed that your have been getting a public butt kicking and now are crying.

Then you say

No ... you pasted link to old figures. Which I took to be true... but was wrong myself. Later when I came across 2011 figures.

Again poor English, yet again. Where are your figures Lazy Taqiyya Amin? If earlier figure are wrong what are the correct figures, and what is your source? It is illogical to say someone is wrong and then not provide correct data and source. What are you thinking Lazy Taqiyya Amin? Or do you just like saying something is wrong and never providing evidence to show this. You are like a dog who barks at the moon? Why say you someone is wrong but not provide correct data if you have it at hand? Or does the truth and facts have no value to you? Do you just like barking?

I do not understand you ... Amin! ... I say I am describing you accurately. Here are a few gems from you.

You said;

And where is that you have given evidence for your "UN" formula - 3 or 4 time? I have repeatedly asked.

I got it from the UN you fool ... Question asked and answered. Where is the Arabic book all Europe has read ... Amin? Then you say again;

And which educators..... where is the rule of thumb... who is it by...? I dont know it. That is what I have been asking for.

The UN stupid ! That was my source. Then you say again, just to prove ...


Its the UN you ... fool!How many times do you need to be told?

I guess you do need something explained 3 or 4 times. Reading is difficult for you. Then you prove mathematics are beyond you. In your vain attempts to sound intelligent, you attack my figures, however the result is that you look ... !

Let me show you again ... Amin.

you said;

How does multiplying the illiteracy rated by 2 come to 60% literate? We already know that 70% are literate according to the figures.....

Only you said that ... Amin. ... I said if you multiply the illiteracy rate by 2, this gives the estimate for the literate but uneducated. Why do you get so confused?

then you show you cannot read again by saying;

But we already know the literacy rate is at 70% - so why are you doubling the illiteracy rate - and then calling it 60% literate?

READ ... AMIN !!!! I never said that, I said if you multiply the illiteracy rate by 2 gives the estimate for literate but uneducated,

Again you say the same ridiculous thing

Wow - what a confused mess....

why would doubling the number of illiterates then subtracting from number of literates - show how many people are educated?

You really are a confused mess! Doubling the number of illiterates is a way of estimating the numbers of literate but uneducated. ...yet again!

Well ... Amin, if 30% of Arabic speakers are illiterate, and 60% are estimated to be literate but uneducated, guess what? Do I really need to spell this out again ?

60% literate but uneducated plus 30% illiterate equals 90% of the population. So why would the remaining 10% NOT BE THE EDUCATED? If you resent being called anything stop writing ... comments!

... Please stop inflicting on the readers here the agony of your poor English ...
