Why do you pontificate about a language that you cannot speak or even understand, Arabic that is?

Infidel means kafir (kuffar pl.) and a kafir means a non-Muslim (ref: Wortabet Arabic dictionary page 204A) and Muslims that let us say celebrate Mawlid al-Nabi they can also be regarded as infidels even if they declare al-shihada (see Ibn Taymiyya's Kitab iqtida al-sirat al-mustaqim).

For readers interested in reading real scholarly work about who is really an infidel? I suggest reading Ruthven's "A Fury for God the Islamist Attack on America" pages 134-136).

You see? we infidels do our home work. You? you do not know Arabic and you ain't no Arab but this does not stop you from pontificating about the religion of the Arabs and you ain't one.

As for your little funny claim that the God of the Christians and Muslims is the same. Then congratulations our dear M&M Jesus is your Allah. But wait this is indeed what the Qur'an says. Wanna talk about it again?

Your claims are bogus as usual.
