In searching out this word, I also discovered that Bar Bahlul (fl. mid-10th C) cited one "Ibn Sina," but presumably not the famous #IbnSina who died in 1037 CE, who was not born until c. 980 CE. Bar Bahlul describes his "Ibn Sina" as "I asked the Rumi (Byzantine?) physician Ibn Sina about this." According to the digitized text of Bar Bahlul's dictionary in the Simtho corpus, Bar Bahlul cites Ibn Sina five times, all in the first letter of the alphabet, and never thereafter.
This is like the phenomenon that if you share a name with a really famous person, no one can ever find you on the internet.

Some missionaries' lives are too tangentially connected with #Wales to be considered for inclusion in the #Bywgraffiadur. That said, their lives are not less worthy of recognising, but may need a different format or place for publication. Such as the case of Issac Khamis. From what I can piece together, he was born c.1859 into an #Assyrian Christian family. He spent some time preaching and acting as a missionary when he decided in the late 1880s to walk across Europe to London to enroll at a college and learn English to improve his chance at collecting financial support for the Christian mission in the #MiddleEast. As part of this journey, he also spent considerable time in Wales, speaking to many congregations about the #EasternChurch and his own life. In the early 1890s then he returned home to continue his work.

It sickens me to no end to the complete failure of our politicians, the political class, and the yellow media. While the chattering class endlessly talk about India and some dirtbag terrorist being whacked on our soil, Canada repatriated literal terrorists that were the wives of ISIS jihadists and their offspring. They made a choice. We shouldn't be penalized for their actions. #India #ISIL #ISIS #terrorism #Cdnpoli #extremists #MiddleEast #justice https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/4/8/canada-repatriates-14-citizens-from-isil-camps-in-syria
