    How would you answer this survey?

    Clearly, a majority of people want American numerals taught. Is it time to speak up about this encroachment of Arabic culture into our society? Do the Muslims already have too much influence? What's your opinion?

    3,000 people surely is representative of a country of over 300 million. How ever will we stop the invaders?

    I don't know. We'll have to find a way to counter the Arabic numerals plot.

    Aren't we using Arabic numerals?

    No, no, only American numerals. Nothing good comes from the Arabs, after all. Don't you see how many agree that we should not teach Arabic numerals? What do you conclude from that survey?

    Absolutely. Most of them hate anything that they don't understand, and algebra heads the list. If you tell them that it was invented by Arabs, then they'll hate it even more.

    Algebra is an Arabic word in the first place.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.
