in response to reader comment: For Ianus: Thank you

Hi, dhimmi no more!

Thanks a lot for your kind words.

> The only way that we can fight Islamic fascism is to get to know our enemy and the enemy of our civilization.

> This means that we have to know Arabic the central theme of Islam.

Exactly, but I have to admit that to someone who faces the Moslem enemy Arabic doesn't seem to be very attractive as a subject. Most surviving Jews after the holocaust couldn't stand German , let alone speak it although for many it was their mother tongue.

> Notice that 99% or those who post in this blog know no Arabic.

Alas, I belong to this category. :(

> That does not stop them from pretending to know Arabic the language of their Allah.

They have to. Allah is an Arabic deity after all. How can a Pakistani imagine that an Arabic idol can understand Urdu ? He is constantly reminded that basically Allah is still a narrow-minded local fetish of Mecca.

> And when they are exposed they run away.

Typically Moslem behaviour, what ? ; )

I'll try to learn from you as much as I can. I admire people like you who can beat the Devil with his own tail, so to speak.
