    ambiguous meaning


    Help me to find the exact meaning of the sentences! It is about inhabitants of a city in Iraq, nearly 400 years ago.

    "These are divided between two factions. Some are descended from the old inhabitants of the land, and are Moors in name and appearance. For the rest, they rate the doctrines of Mahoma at their true value, but are none the better for that."
    thanks very much

    Re: ambiguous meaning

    Some are supposedly Muslim, but do not have deep beliefs. The others follow the faith more seriously, but that does not make them better people.
