Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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?”

Ok, Frijoles, enough for today. I have to go to bed now. Have a good day.
I just wish to tell you that if you put Israeli leaders to a Lie Detector test, the machine will print out immediately upon the first contact, "'Liars!' Disconnect immediately. No need to test!"
For the Palestinians, the machine will analyze and print out "Angry men".
rabbee: no! that, is not true. if anyone actually, believes in the lies they have been brainwashed with. a lie detector, will not regester it as a lie. truth tends to be relative to the source of the truth. no matter how untrue, it is to G-D.

A brief history of Israel
1897: Zionism gets established
Jews have been scattered around Europe and Russia for centuries. However, they were never welcome anywhere, except for brief periods. Not surprisingly, many Jews dreamed of having their own nation.
In 1897 Theodor Herzl officially announced the creation of the Zionist movement. The goal of Zionism was to create a nation for Jews in Palestine. Their goal was not to make friends around the world, nor to love other nations or other people.
The problem they faced was that the Arabs who were living there had no desire to give it up. Also, Turkey had control of Palestine of this time, and Turkey refused to give any part of Palestine to the Jews.
A few Jews moved into Palestine at this time, but only in small numbers were allowed in, and they could not take the land for their own nation.
The Arabs were not concerned when the first few Jews arrived. The Arabs did not realize what was coming up in the future, just as the Native Americans did not realize what was happening when the Pilgrims landed on their shore. Only after a few years, when the quantity of Jews increased, did the Arabs become angry.
There were a few Jews then and now there are millions.
This is illegal occupation by foreigners.
They must leave or get back to the tiny state they were before blaming the neighbours to justify their land theft

The Israelis can't help it if the Arabs started a war they didn't win. They had 2/3 of the old protectorate but wanted the 1/3 also. They lost. They refused to negotiate peace even when the Israelis offered to negotiate repatriation and borders in the early 1950's.

What's even more interesting is that what they are asking for now (1967 borders) is way less than what they had in 1948. It's less than what was offered in the 1950's in exchange for a promise of peace.

What an awful, awful waste of life. Think how many died for nothing. Think how many suffered for nothing.

The model land thief for Muslims everywhere and for all time was Mohammad/Allah.

Qur'an:33:26 "Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before."

The most hateful thought of all for Muslims was that Jews -those cursed descendants of apes and pigs- should exercise rule over them. That's NOT how Mohammad envisioned "the divine scheme of things."

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.
