    I rarely click on external links. Is the video in German or English?

    It's late here. I might have a go at it tomorrow. For now, please note my corrections to your post.

    Re: Problems to understand some sentences in a video

    Let me begin by saying that I strongly disagree with the religious propaganda spouted by this pseudo-scholar, who takes some aspects of current Saudi-Arabian society and implicitly argues that they apply to the whole Islamic world, a patently obvious falsehood. Nevertheless, I will transcribe his words.

    1:49.84 till 1:54.92 So also the ??? toddler ... "the tolerant toddler of peaceful Islam eventually goes through puberty."


    01:55.48 till 2:02.54 that's when we all find out how ???, Jew-hating, church-burning, wife-beating, ???-killing ... "apostate killing"


    03:18.24 till 3:22.36 But in the meantime ???, live... "live and let live."


    7:20.38 till 7:25.00 They were getting angry when he began attacking their beliefs and ??? ??? a bit "they had to put up with quite a bit."


    19:22.88 till 19:26.04 ??? and ???, if you are not a Muslim ... "you can't preach, you can't build a place of worship, you can't even set foot in the city of Mecca."


    Thank you.

    Re: Problems to understand some sentences in a video

    First questions:

    At 1:41 the acorn is 'lowly' not 'lonely'.

    At 3:19 it's, '…to each, his own. Live and let live…'

    At 19:22 it's 'lo and behold'.

    Second questions:

    At 1:55 'That's when we all find out what full-grown…'

    For the others, see above.

    Re: Problems to understand some sentences in a video

    By the way, Hans, you should use the present continuous, "I am translating" rather than the simple present.
