Who Is Allah?

There are 254799 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“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?”

rabbee: so are you a follower of hasatan G-D hates, or baal hamolech G-D also hates. cause it don't appear you are a follower of halooseefer, G-D hates also. cause you most certainly, are not following what G-D is having done. and the foriegners, are who G-D says are the illegal aliens. no matter what you, demonicly think is true against G-D.

The governor was not murdered by the government and neither was the girl attacked by the government. The persons, who did that, were miserable Bs.
Public opinion in Israel is not 100% in favour of the Israeli regime. I know that well.
Freedom of speech has nothing to do with isolated incidents of killing.
The monetary aid should stop. I consider that a heinous crime. Why does Israel need aid, if it has a good economy? Why does Egypt need aid? Let them work hard and make money. I consider monetary aid a bribery and corruption. China closed her doors for thirty years and has become the richest country through hard work.
If you keep on giving fish to people, every day, they will not work hard. They will wait for you and fish. Instead teach them how to fish!
ANd neither is israeli public opinion 100% behind your video or behind your friends.

Like I said, a lot of it is not aid, it is treaty obligations.

And for the rest of it (the aid) the US benefits immensely benefits militarily (an actually ALLY) and economically (by law a lot of that aid has to be spent buying American products). It always has been a win/win. Bromides that are floating around in the anti-Israeli press dont always work.

Frijoles, the figures are bloated. The British Prime Minister made it 40,000, when it was not even 20,000.
The Arab rulers against Asad, are as bad as the Western leaders. Politically, both are in each other's pockets.
You asked a very good question. I cannot blame the entire West for all the miseries in the region.
However, I do blame the British for all the mess that they sowed and created in the region. And I blame America for foolishly carrying the baton or Britain's babies after the British lost their power and might after WWII.
Do you know who created Arab states and appointed bloody fools as heads and who they sided with just for their own gains?
You are reaping what the British sowed!
Before the Brits, there was the Ottomans. And now there is the Iranians, It really never ends.

The real question - still not answered - is less from the historical and more from the contemporary Israeli point of view:

How do you negotiate "peace" with an entity whose sole reason for existing is to destroy you?

Excellent!

That is what all should do. I will send the link to Hamas, Hizbullah and Iran.

By the way, Iran has worked very hard on achieving superior firepower. This would help in achieving peace, as suggested by the link provided by your goodself.

Thanks, Buford.

Of course, Israeli public opinion is not behind me or my Jewish friends but to say that all the Israelis are 100% behind this regime, is absurd.

Was the aid a part of the peace agreement? That is not a treaty obligation. That aid is a bribery.

Bromides would have never floated, if the US had any advantage in trade. Israel is costing the US about USD 20 billion minimum per year. Please dig it out. Official is USD 3 billion and USD 17 billion is under the table. Please check out the trade deficits.

Question: What is something great that this ally done for the US?

Ottomans did not ruin the region. The Brits did.

Iranians have done nothing. If Iran had wanted, it would have taken all of them centuries ago. Does the name Cyrus ring a bell?

Was Iran expanding when the European nations were colonizing the world using trade and deceit?

Now to your question, which I consider a great question. The answer is:

Sit down and talk!

The best example is the USSR, an entity, which was out to destroy the US. Right? Does Russia want to destroy the US and vice versa? Follow the example.

Frijoles and Eric, note the words MONOPOLY and LIFE. I'm confident that in the past both of you have denied the rule of the overlords over the Jewish people.

I have come to realize that your position was unadulturated BS.

"some Reform leaders in Warsaw affiliated with the European Union for Progressive Judaism are dismissing the move as a ploy to restore the Orthodox MONOPOLY over Jewish LIFE in Poland

rabbee: well then you are calling, G-D a liar. cause i got this directly from G-D, about those three angels being set loose on earth. and i have been, observing their works in the world since then.

and from what i have observed, over the years on message boards. this is even mentioned, in the christian book of Revelation. and in fact, even mentions the meeting. meeting between me and G-D, for about half an hour for the first visit. and exactly like it, happened. and even says, you all don't actually know my name.

and this story of creation again, is not about what you or anyone else on earth against G-D wants. no matter how much you, are all against what G-D wants. G-D wanted for us to have GanEden, but nooo!!! you all and your grandmother of all rather get gan hell instead.

Iran is a major instigator of violence in the region. Please stop being in denial. Who do you think is supplying the weaponry and the training? Santa Claus?

So, please answer my question - how DO you negotiate peace with an organization that exists solely to eradicate you?

Look up the details of the Camp david accord. The answer is yes.

How is Israel an ally? Please tell me another country in the region that has allowed US soldiers onto to their land without quibbling? AFter the Arab Spring, this is ever the more obvious.
