Ok, Soren, so here's my response to your PM:
Hope all is well. You haven't been around for a while. I assume you had some problems getting online from Saudi Arabia?
No. I just tend to come and go as I please.
you're right, I was wrong.
So basicly Ishmael was both the first prophet and the first messenger the people of Mecca received. But perhaps Ishmael was no warner? But how then can people of Ishmael's time say that "Yes indeed; a Warner did come to us, but we rejected him and said, 'God never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!" (67.8 ) Every group cast into hell a said to response like this when asked "Did no Warner come to you" (67.7)
And it's still a fact that the different other prophets mentioned above (Hud, Shoaib, Saleh) all had followers who survived the qur'anic gods wrath. So in the same aspect as the Israelites, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Babylonian etc. the Arabs had recieved prophets and messengers.
If we are to apply your logic, then Noah must be viewed as a messenger/warner to all humanity.
See what I mean? When does a people become of a need of their own messenger is unknown ot me, but certainly applying your reasoning, the answer would be: there's no such need after the first time God sent a messenger.
And on another topic. Do you have any inside knowledge on the protests which some saudis tried to stage?
No, except that it was a big failure. One protestor did show up
