Hi Vijay:

Thank you for your very kind remarks. The Arabic language is a great language like any other language. And no I'm not an Arab and I have never been, God forbid, a Muslim.

There is no doubt that the 9/11 Atrocity was the inspiration for me to examine Islam by reading its primary sources (Qur'an, sira, hadith, tarikh, law) in their primary language and that is Arabic. And as a student of Semitic languages it was not difficult to learn Arabic at all.

What is amazing about the likes of our friend Fahad (in actual fact the Arabic name would be: Fahd) is that he pretends to know Arabic when he does not have a clue but still has the audacity to debate questions of grammar that are far beyond him. I call this: Chutzpah. This is a great Yiddish work and I urge you to look it up.

As for Islam: It will be defeated in the market place of ideas. And if communism (another fascist religion) can collapse overnight so will Islam.

Submitting....
