RE:To dhimmi and Plato: Arabic translations

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Arabic translations

Hello dhimmi,

Your Arabic is worse than I ever thought. Bashr means Human not mankind.

For example, when Angel comes to Mary, he says, you will be pregnant with a child. She replies,

"How can I, I have never been touched by any Bashr"

With little brain, one can see, Bashr means human not mankind

How funny, the person who himself does not know Arabic is worried about my Arabic?
