Once again, this observer extends an appreciation to DNM and to Dr Pipes for providing certain perceptions and studied observances in how one of the more troubling aspects of how a world searching desperately for peace is frustrated time and again with attitudes of indecent animosities towards those who seek peace but are targeted by expressions of ancient hatreds by actors who cannot see past their darkened expressions to realize they are targeting themselves for extinction as well.
What's in a name? In Arabic, whether classical or Egyptian (which is the clearer expression of the Aramaic local languages in the Levant versus the much older Egyptian expressions coming from the Land of the Pharaohs?); the MB appears to be having an identity crisis; which linguistic practice of Islam are they really following: al-Tabari or al-Qurtubi? DNM, anyone?
