>>I thought you read Arabic, but no matter where it comes , these writings are from the Holly book of Qur'an , JUST READ SORAH , ' al-3uMRAN , verse 101 '

>>From the book of QUR'AN is the writing above , sorah 101 of 3umran
>...the word "nation" could not have applied to Arabs at that time since there was absolutely no national feeling...no sense of an Arab "nation" as such. In fact the hardest thing to do was to get the various Arab tribes to think of themselves as one people...this is where you constantly mistake moderm notions of "nation" with ancient and archaic ones...it could just easily mean a nation of Islam, than a nation of Arabs...Islam was for all people, not just Arabs.
>...you're basically a Racist.
We know well and I think that Jumblat knows well that the verse is not talking about Arabs but the "Islamic Nation"(ummah) which was never and will never be a nation of nationalism and tribalism. Islam brought humanity together and united all. The modern Arab States and nations are nothing more than British, French and other inventions of the west. The Arab nationalism was invented recently just like the Assyrian nationalism was invented less than 100 years ago. Muslims use always identify themselves as Muslims first and then which tribe or nation they belonged to. This modern nationalism in the Arab world is due to secular governments and not Islam.
