  1. But do these palestinian christians take photographs of themselves holding the disembodied head of some disbeliever while they are saying “Allahu Akbar”?

    Which highlights the fallacy of equivocation at work here.

  2. D,

    More than 99% of the global Muslim never do that – only relatively insignificant fringes do that!

    No text of Islam in context advocates that, as you may know.

    So associating Islam or mainstream Muslims with that is not only fallacious but a heinous crime.

    So it is fallacious to

  3. Getting back to the original post “Did You know?” and what the Archbishop says.
    “Did you know?” – yes, I actually knew that. I have had interaction with Palestinian, Lebanese, and Egyptian Christians years ago – their everyday language is Arabic. (since 1983)

    Arabic slowly became the language of the area after the Muslim Arabs of Arabia conquered the whole area. (after the 2nd Caliph, Omar Ibn Al Khattab’s aggressive warfare from 636 AD onward)

    Originally, before Omar’s wars; the main languages were Greek and Syriac (Aramaic). Aramaic/Syriac still survives in very rural areas; but most cities became Arabized over centuries of waves of Arab Muslim invasions in aggressive warfare; and then the Dhimmi and Jiziye policies slowly wore down the Christians and many either immigrated to other areas or became Muslims because of social and economic reasons.

    You can see the Archbishop’s name is very Greek.

    North Africans speak dialects of Arabic that are mixtures from their ancient languages of Berber dialects. Some Latin words also survive in everyday life from certain areas, even in Palestinian Arabic. Arabic has about 5 major dialects – 1. Egyptian, 2. Arabian/Gulf Arabic, 3. Levant Arabic, 4. North African Derije, and 5. Iraqi Arabic. Even those also have subsets of dialects.

    The Coptic language of Egypt is a dead language (like Latin, used in rituals and scholarly material related to the history of the Coptic Church and their theological works and creeds, etc., but not everyday life anymore); and the Coptic Christians speak Arabic also.

  4. “since 1983” means since the time I started reaching out to Muslims and learning about their culture. I met many Arabs from many Arabic speaking countries and they told me about the different dialects, etc. With that, I also met many Christians from the Coptic and “Rum” churches (means Byzantine Orthodox Churches that still survive in the Levant areas.).

  5. LOL! Fido tries desperately to deny the religious war that that the LRA is fighting. It just goes to show how deceptive this missionary dog of hell is. The LRA is fighting to establish Biblibal law. They have said that before. And it is not the only Christian terrorist group. Here is a list of others for you enjoyment:

    I say;
    Jews will tell you that under Islamic rule they have more money than some Muslims and Christians will tell you tell you the same. So, to continue to peddle lies by you with regards to people converting to Islam at that time because of economic reason is a lie Jesus Christ will not be happy with especially you who have the Holy Spirit in you. I corrected you over and over but you will keep bringing it. There are Muslim poor and there is no guarantee when you convert to Islam you will be rich.

    I know Christians who preach that when one converts to Christianity they will be rich. Muslims do not do that because it is a lie. Only Allah gives riches to whomever He pleases. Ken, there are more Christians and Jews In the Muslim Majority countries and when you visited Iran you saw a lot of Jews there. Why did they not convert to Islam? because of economic reasons? Are those Jews and Christians not rich? from centuries till today?

    Greek is never the language of the middle East but Hebrew, Aramaic and Arabic and Arabic was there for centuries and not that it came at Umars time.

    You did not mention the Crusader Christians killing Jews and Arabs before Muslims arrived to set the inhabitants free.

    First Crusade

    ———————-
    During the crusade, knights, peasants and serfs from many regions of Western Europe travelled over land and by sea, first to Constantinople and then on towards Jerusalem. The Crusaders arrived at Jerusalem, launched an assault on the city, and captured it in July 1099, massacring many of the city’s Muslim and Jewish inhabitants. They also established the crusader states of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the County of Tripoli, the Principality of Antioch, and the County of Edessa.

    • Donald Trum, Juliani. Newt Gingeritch Dr. Ben Carson Christian etc. inspired terrorist has short a Muslim Imam and his assistant and killed the Imam in New York and it is no news in the western media. Imagine if the was a person with a Muslim name killing someone. The whole world would have heard the news.

      The police call it a hate crime. Imagine if Juliani, Newt, Carson were Muslims, they would have been arrested of killed.

      Thanks.

    “The LRA is fighting to establish Biblibal law. They have said that before. And it is not the only Christian terrorist group. Here is a list of others for you enjoyment:

    Those groups,as far as I know,identify as Christian,part of their self-definition,and you could have added the Taiping(Supreme Peace) group,whose leader, a Chinese,

    said he was Christian and in fact,the younger brother of Jesus.

    He led a rebellion to overthrow the Chinese emperor,it lasted from 1850-64 and killed 20 million people.

    So I have nothing against technically labeling them Christian since in fact that is what they label themselves.But even the most skeptical NT scholar would say that the historical Jesus accepted the Golden Rule as the heart of his ethics.

    It appears in the Sermon on the Mount:

    Matthew 7:12

    ““So whatever you wish that others would do to you,

    do also to them(the Golden Rule or Ethic of Reciprocity),

    for this is the Law and the Prophets“.

    Later,in the very same sermon,Jesus refers to groups like the LRA and Taiping:

    Matthew 7:21-23

    ” “Not everyone who says to me,

    ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,

    but the one who does the will of my Father(like the Golden Rule which Jesus said was the Law and the Prophets) who is in heaven.

    On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in YOUR NAME, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’

    And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”
