Allah is not another name for God, it is the name of a false being created by Ishmael centuries ago. Mohammed was a madman/pervert he preyed upon children, some prophet, eh ?

"...Mohsen Namjoo is Iran's most popular, and controversial, musician.

He is known for fusing traditional Persian music with Western styles such as rock, jazz, and blues. He blends the verses of great Iranian poets, such as Hafiz and Rumi, with his own poetry and words.

Many see the 32-year-old Namjoo as a genius -- an avant-garde artist who breaks barriers. Others dismiss him as a lunatic. The fact is that no one can remain indifferent while listening to his songs."
