in response to reader comment: For phonetics: you want me to read Karen Armstrong? She is a joke!

"What is most absurd is that Allah or is it the poor theologian Muhammad, the Arabian war lord, caravn raider and wannabe prophet plagiarized the secular literature of the Greeks and the Syrians (eg: the story of "The seven sleepers of Ephesus" that Muhammad calls the story of Ahl al-kahf, and the story of ":The Romance of Alexander" which Muhammad calls the story of Dhul Qarnain) and he had the audacity to call stories of fiction the word s of the god of the universe.

Karen Armstrong? She ain't no historian"

Well... you sure do have a lot on history... not very much knowledge though.... With regards to Karen Armstrong, you are going to have to take it up with her, cause she never claimed to be a historian, a theologian perhaps but a historian never.

And as for Muhammad, being an orphan and not being able to read and write, "plagiarized the secular literature of the Greeks and the Syrians"? wow! Maybe i should be illiterate like this so called Muhammad you speak of (the Arabian war lord, caravn raider and wannabe prophet? no islamic prophet that's for sure) or perhaps you were speaking of yourself?

BTW, Each Arabic word has a derrivative that is only common in certain countries that have developed the language and integrated it into their own, hence "eidul Fitr" turned "idul Fitri" or "idul fitrah" and judging from your words you must be from Pakistan Or India perhaps? Do not confuse the majority with the minority that have still been using the "dhimmi" in their society... How primordial are you? BTW that word has no basis in the Quran, the Hadith speaks of it but their are so many and yet so few to give recognition to... How sad it is that you still recognize it by calling yourself "Dhimmi no more"...
