Thrust of argument: I mentioned this translation of Ibn el Arabi: "The Special Love
As the full moon appears from the night, so appears her face amid the tresses.
From sorrow comes the perception of her: the eyes crying on the cheek; life the black narcissus
Shedding tears upon a rose.
More beauties are silenced: her fair quality is overwhelming.
Even to think of her harms her subtlety (thought is
Too coarse a thing to perceive her). If this be
So, how can she correctly be seen by such a clumsy organ as the eye?
Her fleeting wonder eludes thought.
She is beyond the spectrum of sight.
When description tried to explain her, she overcame it.
Whenever such an attempt is made, description is put to flight.
Because it is trying to circumscribe.
If someone seeking her lowers his aspirations (to
Feel in terms of ordinary love),
-there are always others who will not do so."
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Apparently, 'Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, Muhammad b. 'Ali Ibn 'Arabi is one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Known as Muhyiddin (the Revivifier of Religion) and the Shaykh al-Akbar (the Greatest Master), he was born in 1165 AD into the Moorish culture of Andalusian Spain, the centre of an extraordinary flourishing and cross-fertilization of Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought, through which the major scientific and philosophical works of antiquity were transmitted to Northern Europe. Ibn 'Arabi's spiritual attainments were evident from an early age, and he was renowned for his great visionary capacity as well as being a superlative teacher. He travelled extensively in the Islamic world and died in Damascus in 1240 AD.'

Removal of resistance: Since it is likely you've made all kinds of genocidal statements about Islam and muslims, maybe it's time you spent some time reading about muslims and islam instead? Eh? Don't you think? Or do you prefer being a nazi bigot?
