I always thought Sinead O'Connor was actually the Quarterflash singer with a shaved head acting out her anger issues.

All I know of her is that she had many many issues and that her music sucked.

I hope she has found peace of some sort finally.

Nirvana was my most disliked band and Curt Kobain or whatever his name was, was my most disliked person in music. I knew he was sick in the head so when he killed himself it wasn't much of a surprise... more of a relief.

So double yuck.

This was before YouTube.. even before the internet proper... all we had was satellite TV and MTV. And people like Nirvana and this New WAHABI chick only gave me depression when they drowned out all the good music out there.

So I am happy for her. She should please go to Saudi and stay there.

There have been many Muslim female heads of state. Meanwhile the US has had none... and will never have one.

Politically regressive? LOL

So what? Islam is easily the world's most reactionary religion: homophobic, misogynist, anti-semitic, opposed to secularism, the separation of church of state and liberal values.

We don't know she is WAHABIST for sure... but I am like 90% sure. From the way she is covered up and from the way the article spells Azaan (the muslim call to prayer) as "Adhan".

Like Ramzaan is spelled "Ramadhan" by WAHABIs... like they got a speech defect.

#18 | Posted by J_Tremain at 2018-10-26 11:13 AM | Reply

"Like Ramzaan is spelled "Ramadhan""

The former is Urdu and the latter is Arabic, no?

Nope....

See here:

In Arabic, they write it like this...

That round thing with a dot on top makes a Zed sound.... zzzzzzzz.... RamZaan. I have no idea how retarded these people have to be they can't read what they themselves write.

I think it's because they are snooty bastards. They want to give the impression they know better so they tweak it to sound different.

#21 | Posted by J_Tremain at 2018-10-26 02:07 PM | Reply

Hell I wouldn't even spell it that way... goddam Arabic script.. only got 28 letters and no "P". (Urdu has 58 letters).

Pakistan is "Bakistan" and Pepsi is "Bebsi".

I call that a speech defect.

OK... I am going to ignore that Mofo Hindoo who thinks he knows whatever. I don't care what he thinks he knows.

But the third guy on your page said something interesting:

The letter Thawd in the Arabic, which is the 3rd letter reading from the right going to (left رمضان), has no English equivalent- it's a hard TH sound in Arabic. AND IS NOT PRONOUNCED WITH A " Z" SOUND as some people think.

The Arabs, when they spell out the word in English, Ramadhan with the "dh" is used, because it is actually more accurate.

It's a very hard TH sound than those in THat,THis and THere.

I looked it up further and it seems what they call the letter "Thawd" in Arabic, they call it "Zo-ay" in Urdu. So in Urdu is would be zzzzzzz and in Arabic it would be "TH". It seems this is the Bedouin Arabic way of speaking.

But as I am not Arab, much less a Bedouin, I have no desire to pronounce it like I got a speech defect.

And I was correct... only some WAHABI would use that pronunciation. She has turned herself into a Shwarma.

#26 | Posted by J_Tremain at 2018-10-27 12:09 AM | Reply

WHOOPS!!! I clicked on her Twitter and she is using the correct spelling ... AZAN, not "Adhan".

"Here is my 1st attempt at singing the Azan."

Might not be a WAHABI Shwarma after all.

Apologies.

Well of course, you'd rather pronounce it in your native Urdu. Otherwise your neighbors might think you're a foreigner. >:-)

#28 | Posted by sentinel at 2018-10-27 08:38 AM | Reply

Dude.... there are only a handful Arabs in the world.

On the other hand, there are like 1.5 - 2 BILLION non-Arabs. At least.

The majority... the VAST majority... would pronounce it the way I do.

Why should I even consider a language that can't make a "P" sound? LOL

Anyway, what our back and forth has shown is that if you want to know who is a WAHABI and who isn't, see how they spell things.

Nope. Wahhabi are a small minority in the Arab speaking world. Even if you're counting Salafists, still a minority (about 50 million out of 400 million). Even though a minority of Muslims in the world are Arab today, it doesn't change the fact it's originally an Arab religion.

I am.

Wahhabi are a small minority in the Arab speaking world.

Not when it comes to cash.

it's originally an Arab religion.

Islam was started by Adam.

Adam could have been American for all I know, though many people think he first came to Earth at what is now Sri Lanka on Adam's Peak.

I'm not the one who was mocking actual Englishmen for having a "speech defect" and not spelling or pronouncing their own language correctly. That's what you're doing with Arabs.

This is the point where you clumsily change the subject again and hope no one notices.

Where did I mock any Englishmen for having a speech defect?

What are you talking about?

That's what you're doing with Arabs.

Whatever. I find Arabs irritating. When I hear speech that is trying to be "authentic" I find it funny. In this case, it was the BBC trying to sound "authentic" when they don't even know the ABC of Arabic. At least I am familiar with the alphabet.

So NOW I am saying the Englishmen have a speech defect. LOL

I also find white people becoming Muslim highly irritating. It gives me a tummy-ache.

This is the point where you clumsily change the subject again and hope no one notices.

This is my thread. I can change the subject as and when I please. I don't care who notices.

Tremain wanted to ask you, for a white boy like me when I'm fixing a fireplace in someone's house how can I tell if they are Pakistani or Indian? I mean short of learning Urdu and Hindi.

Had a family they other day who I was pretty sure was Pakistani but am afraid to ask because of the animosity between the two countries.

Say this, "Man... I had this beef burger the other day and it gave me a tummy-ache..."

If they are Indian, they will say, "Well you shouldn't be eating beef".

If from Pakistan, they will suggest a better beef burger.

OR

Say "Namaste"... and if they look at you funny, they are from Pakistan.

OR

Ask daddy to take his pants off. If circumcised, they are from Pakistan.

OR

Just ask them for Gawd's sake. "What part of the Subcontinent are you from?"

Generally Indians are a lot darker in skin color than Pakistanis.

#48 | Posted by J_Tremain at 2018-10-28 09:00 AM | Reply

If the lady of the house is wearing too much gold bling... probably Indian... if wearing a sari... Indian for sure.... if talking in a "sing song accent" then Indian... Pakistanis don't use a "sing song accent".

Many many ways to tell.

If they randomly break into Bollywood song and dance... they might be Indian.

If they act drunk... they might be PK.
