“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

…The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change this,.........
For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything 'chosen' about them,”
-Albert Einstein
Amazing quote from an amazing Jew.Ooops, now Einstein is an anti-Semite
Regardless of Einstein's religious upbringing, I am sure he deplored the mass murder of various entities and family relations around at that time. Regardless of one's scientific background, most people are people, and resent the idea of having their loved ones bombed. Regardless of "which side they're on." Even today most of us don't like the idea of sacrificing victims such as the Aztecs did it to their god.

You are right Brother, Jews and Zionists gloat over the success of Joshua, David, Solomon and other Jewish Warriors and how they dealt with "enemies of God".
However when the same rule is applied on them (on a much smaller scale against one Jewish tribe in Madina, for their treachery at the point of extreme danger to the nascent Islamic state)... all of them start weeping and raise finger at our prophet for being "extremely cruel" to those jews.
Maximum number of Jews killed in Bani Quraiza was between 450-500. And Joshua and David and Solomon and even Moses killed people in multi thousands.... but they forget all such things and only raise fingers at our prophet.
And the beauty is that Jews of Bani Quraiza themselves fixed the Arbitrators and when he decided the judgment based on the Jewish Law, none of them raised any objection to it and accepted it.
But our Modern Friends of Jews still weep over those Jews of Bani Quraizah....while they have killed Millions of Muslims in one war or another.
They weep for those 450-500 Jews and gloss over millions of Muslims they killed.
This is the unbiased western justice system!!
Um, excuse me -- it's not just the "western" system, friend. It's most every system. That is why God is God and we are not. When I see 'others' dancing in the streets over murders and killings of "westerners," trust me -- it's not "just" westerners that are concerned about "their own."

Are you also suggesting that WHILE the JEWISH BUSINESSMEN and BANKERS WERE CONSIDERING THIS model, the forefathers of the ITALIAN MAFIA KILLED JESUS AFTER BEATING HIM UP, TOOK AWAY HIS EXTREMELY PROFITABLE BUSINESS MODEL from JEWS/JERUSALEM, to their HEAD QUARTERS in ROME AFTER DESTROTYING JERUSALEM AND THE JEWISH money TEMPLE????!!!

False. The Jews were never legal bound to murder captured Jews.
MUQ wrote:
Do you mean to say that Jews have a separate law for others and another for themselves?
The Jews have always had their own particular rules of engagement with non-Jews, but Mohammad was NEVER a Jew. Put another way, he was NOT the prophet to come that Moses prophesied, even though he believed that he was, and THIS helps to explain why he hated Jews so much and cursed them repeatedly for their "disbelief" in his Qur'an.

History of Truth, The Truth about God and Religions, By:Dr. Adel M. Elsaie, Ph.D. Part-
7.6 Muhammad (Pbuh) in the Bible

The Prophet Like Unto Moses

God addresses Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18: "I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee (Moses), and will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."

Brethren of the Israelites (descendant of Abraham through Isaac) are the Ishmaelite (descendant of Abraham through Ishmael). Jesus should be excluded, as he is an Israelite; otherwise the above verse should say: "Prophet from among yourself."

Is Muhammad not like unto Moses? If not accepted, then the promise has yet to be fulfilled. The table below is self-explanatory:

In Deuteronomy 18:19: "And it shall come to pass that whosoever will not hearken my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him."
In the Quran 113 of the 114 chapters starts with "In the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Merciful." Also, in their daily work, Muslims start with this saying. Notice "in my name", not in the name of God.

God talks about His Personal Name that is Allah. As it is a Personal Name, it is not subject to gender, like god or goddess, or to plurality, like god or gods. Christians start with "In the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit." Thus the above verse of Deuteronomy applies only to Muhammad.

Art Thou That Prophet?

The Jews are still expecting the fulfillment of the prophecy of "unto like Moses." When Jesus said that he is the Messiah of the Jews, they began to inquire about Elias and the prophet. The Jews had a parallel prophecy that before the coming of the Messiah, Elias must come first in his second coming. Jesus confirms this Jewish belief:

Matthew 17:11-13 "...Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not, then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist."

The Jews did not believe Jesus about Elias, so they sent priests and Levites to John the Baptist to ask who he really was:

John 1:20-21 "And he (John the Baptist) confessed and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, what then, Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No."

Jesus said that Elias came, and it was understood that he was John the Baptist. But John the Baptist denied that. I will leave this discrepancy between John the Baptist and Jesus for the Christian scholars to solve!
The Jews were waiting for the fulfillment of three distinct prophecies:

1. The coming of Christ.

2. The coming of Elias.

3. The coming of that prophet.

And the crucial question here is "Art thou that prophet?" Who was then the long awaited prophet after the advent of John the Baptist and Jesus? Was it not the one like unto Moses, as described above, who was Muhammad?

Another Comforter
John is the only apostle to report the story of the last dialogue between Jesus and the apostles. It happened after the last supper and before Jesus’ arrest. It ends with a speech of four chapters long; John 14-17.
It is interesting to note that the synoptic do not refer to this very long speech. Did the text initially exist in synoptic and then removed? If so, why? This adds to the long list of mysteries of the Bible. Nevertheless, these chapters present a futuristic outline with very important subject.

This farewell speech seemed like Jesus was addressing the entire humanity with his vision and recommendations. His main concern was to specify who would guide humanity after him. In John 14:16: "And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever."

We do not know exactly the original Aramaic word that Jesus used for the Comforter. Other Bibles use Consoler, Advocate, Helper, and in Greek Bibles the word is Baraclete. There are different explanations for the Comforter: the Holy Ghost, the Word, a person, etc. In John 14:18, Jesus said: "I will not leave you comfortless."

This means that he referred to himself as Comforter. However, in John 14:26, the Comforter is referred to as the Holy Ghost! And Christian preachers assure their audience that the comforter is the Holy Ghost, without any mention to the following references from John 15:26: "...he shall testify of me."

John 16:7-8 "...It is expedient for you that I go away, for if I go not away, the comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:"

John 16:13-14 "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth, for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak, and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you."

Does the above descriptions fit the Holy Ghost, spirit, or a person? The comforter is described as to be able to hear and speak; does this fit a spirit or a person? Did a deliberate adaptation of the Bible add a few words here and there to alter the intended meanings that predicted the advent of a prophet after Jesus?

Was the Holy Ghost absent when Jesus was on Earth, and it was waiting for him to depart, so it can guide the believers? Without any prejudice, one can honestly conclude that Jesus was talking about a prophet that will establish righteousness and Judgment. This is what Muhammad accomplished: righteousness and Judgment, faith and law.

Whatever the explanation is for the Comforter, we conclude that Jesus left unfinished work and that someone was coming to complete his mission.

If one puts together all the above-mentioned verses of the Bible about Shiloh (Islam), Baca, chariots of camels, Prophet like unto Moses, Art thou that Prophet, and Comforter, one should conclude without any doubt that these verses relates to Islam and Muhammad. These verses escaped the human’s revision of the Bible. And we can only hope that these verses will not be expunged from the next revised version of the Bible!

(Contd.)

When we discuss about our prophet, we should limit our discussions to his character and his actions only.

To justify what Moses, Joshua, David and |Solomon did and only condemn our prophet is not justified.

We should use the same standard for all of them.

He is talking to his disciples and saying: and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever." So the father will give the disciples in their life time another conforter, so how can this be related to an event 600 years later?
Jesus also said: that he might abide with you for ever? Did muhammad live for ever?
