Right, for those who want a quick backdrop as to why Muslims are rebuking James White I will inform you White, in his debate with Sheikh Awal, claimed Allah repents in Surah 2:37 and he (White) was later taken to task on this issue and his odd claim was styled a “lie” as NO translation of the Quran agreed with James White’s assertion. Sheikh Awal was stunned and confused over White’s bizarre proclamation too.
Subsequently James White was harshly rebuked (see here) and criticised for being inconsistent and inaccurate. White responded by claiming he was RIGHT (even though ALL the expert translators of the Verse disagreed with him). White cited a bloke from a missionary website as proof he was RIGHT and thus all the EXPERTS WERE WRONG!!! See Appendix 1 for the article in which James White is adamant he is right (and thus EVERY expert translator is incorrect), evocatively titled as “Facts for the Honest (To Be Ignored by the Dishonest)”
Muslim Apologist, 1MoreMuslim, Gives James White a lesson in Arabic grammar and a Stern Ticking Off
The latest (and final) chapter was an Arabic speaker giving James White a lesson in Arabic grammar and REBUKING James White and confirming what we all KNEW – that James White is in the wrong. It's time for White to come clean and up his level of scholarship. Here is 1MoreMuslim’s rebuke and lesson directed at James White:
Conclusion – White involved himself in inaccurate and inconsistent scholarship
James White shunned ALL expert translations and translators in favour of a bloke on the internet who is NOT qualified in Arabic. Once James White was found out he adamantly insisted he was RIGHT and started accusing those who found him out of dishonesty. James White was left with no hiding place after 1MoreMuslim exposed his dodgy internet translation to be grammatically incorrect.
White KNOWS he cannot just go around eschewing (shunning) expert scholarship and translations in favour of a dodgy missionary translation on the internet as this is inconsistent and intellectually dishonest. White KNOWS this but his pride fails to allow him to admit to his error.
White is being inconsistent. To paraphrase James White; inconsistency is the sign of a failed argument and a failed faith too.
If White deceived you with his helping of inaccuracy please contact him and let him know of your disapproval.
May God guide us all and may God bless those who took part in bringing James White’s misinformation, inconsistency and unreliability to the fore. Ameen.

Facts for the Honest (To Be Ignored by the Dishonest)
06/25/2010 - James White
For the few who are interested in the brief statement I made (styled a "lie" by the PPO&D, the "promoters of perpetual outrage and dishonesty"---a new term I have quoted for a certain very small, very irrelevant, but very vocal group of Muslim trouble-makers) at one point in the debate with Sheikh Awal, pointing out the contradiction between his asserting the Bible cannot be the Word of God because God "repents" (the Hebrew is nacham) and the fact that Allah is described as "oft-repenting." I made reference to Surah 2:37 simply because it was the first in a long list of substantiating texts. It says: "Then Adam received commandments from his Lord, and his Lord repented (fataba) towards him; for He is Oft-Repenting (huwa al-tawwabu), Most Merciful." He is oft-repenting. What's so difficult to understand? Well, it's simple: Muslims, as I demonstrated over and over again a few days ago, have one standard for the Bible, another standard for the Qur'an. "Oh, well, in the Qur'an, that means..." and off they go. But, if you attempt to explain that nacham likewise has a contextual meaning in the Bible, they ignore your explanation. So, the Qur'an can be explained, the Bible cannot. Double standards. Inconsistency. Sign of a failed argument, and in this case, a failed religion.
