Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History
in response to reader comment: Dhmmi Not even Aware of Basics of Arabic!

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Jan 15, 2012 at 21:24

Mr Riaz ,continues:

"....Mr Riaz was asked to prove that point by doing exactly what was described by himself . One suggestion was to comment on the Tao Te Ching by cutting and pasting in Mandarin - and then arguing the point with a native speaker. Mr. Riaz has not jumped at the opportunity to prove himself right.

".....Ah dhimmi doesn't argue. "

Dhimmi certainly does argue.

"....That is apparent from his repeating EVERYTHING thrice. The same assertion."

He sticks to the points he makes and invariably his ostensibly arabic speaking respondent is not able to convincingly refute his statements.

"...I told you we have EXCHANGED several hundred messages. He doesn't understand. That is the whole point."

Yes, Mr Riaz has said that he has had Several hundred exchanges between Dhimmi and himself. Several hundred have not been fund on this blog. So either he has had exchanges with apart from this blog - or .......

"....And you cannot judge whether his Arabic is right or wrong... I gave you a simple task to verify one type of his numerous lies..... you HAVE REPEATEDLY ignored it. Yet you expect ME to carry out your commands... dear dear."

It was made perfectly clear to Mr Riaz earlier on that GIK cannot read Arabic . GIK expects nothing from Mr Riaz (and will not be disppointed.)

".....The material he posts about is commonly available by other. "

?? by other what?

"He never strays from that. Anything he cannot answer he ignores it. He makes mistakes after mistake after mistake..."

He never strays from the relevant points being discussed - why fault him for that? Usually it is about inconsistencies in the Koran. That is the point being discussed and he sticks to it.


"...Second where is the native Mandarin?"

If Mr Riaz was up to the challenge , I'm sure a native mandarin speaker could easily be found who would be quite willing to test his ability to cut and paste and successfully make cogent arguments about the meaning of passages from the Tao Te Ching. Let's make it easier - there are Finnish readers of this site - perhaps Mr Riaz could cut and paste and intelligently criticise phrases from tracts of the Kalevala in Finnish - with a native Finnish speaker. Why, they even use the Roman alphabet. Should be an easy thing for Mr. Riaz.


"Point proven over Dhimmi though. He is not even aware of basics of Arabic grammar. "

Despite everything discussed, Mr Riaz still maintains that Dhimmi has no knowledge of Arabic. Demonstrating a great ability to believe the ridiculous instead of the obvious. Where have we seen that before?


"..Whats with repeating of the self worth mantra.... "

What does Mr Riaz mean - has anyone ever mentioned the term 'self-worth'?

"...and why is it you are engaging me in mere trifles when there is world poverty that needs sorting out. "

??? How bizarre. On three occasions Mr Riaz was asked what he and other Western resident muslims are doing about muslim on muslim violence in the muslim world. The issue was sidestepped at every turn. Now he asks about poverty? Nothing was said about poverty - although that is prevalent in but not specific to the muslim world.

The question was - what is being done about the ideology that drives muslims to kill or maim or exploit other muslims (putting aside the 5.5 billion non-muslims)?

It is extremely easy to find examples of muslims promoting very unhealthy attitudes towards other people who do not share their specific beliefs - and that can include other muslims who do not share their supreme belief system . Here's an example of some clown mouthing off at that old favourite - the Jews.


Mr Clown may be a kindly greengrocer during the day - but put him in front of a mike in front of other muslims - and he becomes something else completely.

Instead of taking ownership of their own fear anger and hatred - Mr Clown and his ilk sink into further unconsciousness and project it on the 'enemy' in the 'outside' world - hoping to rope in as many gullible fools as possible. There are no winners - the result invariably ends in bloodshed.

Of course - there are a myriad examples - of what can only be described as hate speech and the complete demonization of a small group of humanity (Jews) - but it can just as easily be Ahmadiya muslims in Indonesia, Bahai's in Iran or Shia in Pakistan or Iraq. Not mentioning of course non-muslims Christians in various parts of Africa, Christians and Hindus in Afghanistan or Pakistan, Bangladesh etc

Does Mr Riaz concede that people like this and their philosophies are not only not bringing any benefits to the world - they are actually causing harm?

If he does not then further discussion is pointless as he agrees with their actions and philosophies.

If he does agree - then what are people like Mr Riaz (Western resident muslims ) doing about it? They have the opportunity , the access to technology and the freedom of speech to speak out countering the divisive philosophies of their co-believers. Muslims are not going to listen to the lucid arguments of infidels - but they should listen to other muslims.

So why the deafening silence, why the inaction? Is it fear of muslim repercussion and a loss of social standing in the eyes of other muslims for speaking out ? i.e. hindering the establishment of the worldwide ummah?

Or is the situation appraised as being hopeless - and inaction becomes the most comfortable reaction?


Mr Riaz relies on a self-aggrandizing pop star to fix poverty?
