Who Is Allah?

“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?”

<quoted text>Imam Some vs. Many,
YOU would judge me as "silly and idiotic" for throwing your own sacred bullshit back in your snarling and uncomprehending face.
In your post #157517, you deliberately misquoted:

"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." "

I judged you right when I rubbed dung in your face as advised in Malachi. And whenever I judge you, I always let you know.

<quoted text>Idiot,
What is the difference between "some" and "many?" No matter the number, the fact, "that no one can deny," is that your prophet was a MURDERER of captives.
Why don't you consider that a summary trial of treacherous men, who had planned to wipe out the Prophet and the Muslims? It would be easy on you, if you did that.

Think of the summary trial of Banu Afghanistan. Was fast and justified, because 3,000 plus Banu America had died due to an action by a rogue. Right?

Changing topic.

Let us discuss Banu Israel and their killing in Europe.

Question to Buford:

Why were millions of Jews murdered, beheaded, slaughtered, burned alive and boiled in oil by Banu Jesus, I mean the European Christians over centuries?

What was their fault? Had they sided with a particular Banu Europe? What wrong had they done?

Was it because they believed in one God, while the Banu Europe or Banu Church believed in three?

Why didn't Allah send him back after saving him?....you stupid bluddy fool.
What for? To have him killed?

It was a total recall.

He was withdrawn, as the mission was not going anywhere. Also, he had wasted three years in the Israel Forum, getting embroiled in Tu Quoque and Red Herrings. He was exactly in the same situation as the one at Topix Forums.

John had already lost his head, so it was prudent to pull the man out. When you save a person from drowning, you don't throw him back into the sea.

Afghan papers shed light on Jewish life

National library in Jerusalem unveils cache of 1,000-year-old documents written by Jewish community, which were discovered by chance in cave which have served as hideouts for Taliban insurgents

A cache of 1,000-year-old documents written by the Jewish community in Afghanistan and unveiled in Jerusalem on Thursday sheds unprecedented light on the mediaeval Jewish community in central Asia.......

....The collection gives an unprecedented look into the lives of Jews in ancient Persia in the 11th century. The paper manuscripts, preserved over the centuries by the dry, shady conditions of the caves, include writings in Hebrew, Aramaic, Judea-Arabic and the unique Judeo-Persian language from that era, which was written in Hebrew letters.

"It was the Yiddish of Persian Jews," said Ben-Shammai.

.....He said the Jewish community in the region at the time lived largely like others in the Muslim world, as a "tolerated minority" that was treated better than under Christian rule. Afghanistan's Jewish community numbered as many as 40,000 in the late 19th century, after Persian Jews fled forced conversion.

By the mid-20th century, only about 5,000 remained, and most emigrated after Israel's creation in 1948. A lone Jewish man remains in Afghanistan, while 25,000 Jews live in neighboring Iran — Israel's bitter enemy.....

Yes, that is correct and the Jews lived a better but a simple life in all Muslim countries.

I do believe that if the modern state of Israel had not been created, the Jews would have lived happily along with their Muslim counterparts in the states that they lived in.

The treatment of Jews in the Christian Europe, has always been a nightmare and a thing of the recent past. That episode of centuries ignited by the massive killing just seventy years ago, was the main reason that the state of Israel was formed.

After reading your post, I searched and found this. Liked it very much. Lovely pics. Hope you will like them too.

Since brother Jesus left no scripture, the Christians had nothing. They did not even have an exact copy of the Jewish Holy Scriptures with them. They knew nothing, so they could not protest at anything. They were clueless.
What they had was a very poor translation of the Torah, known as the Septuagint written in the non-scriptural market language Greek, which the Jews did not even read or recite. Even the Jews do NOT read or recite from the Christians' Old Testament. Most of them do NOT even touch it.
That translation was not an authorized and an approved translation. It was done for the private collection of Ptolemy.
The Jewish Holy Scriptures were edited, corrupted and forged by the early Church fathers, who were at them for a few centuries and came up with a "Reverse Engineered" book, known as the Old Testament. There was no such thing as the Old Testament and this book was plagiarized and copied wholesale by the Church, which needed to have a scripture of some sort, badly.
The Church fathers dug into the Greek translation and tried their level best to show Jesus in the Jewish Holy Scriptures and even a dry twig, was considered as pointing to Jesus. Corruption was rampant in the first ten centuries. It only stopped after the arrival of printing press.
The Jews did not protest because they knew the Old Testament was a forgery, full of perversions and they did not care, because they had the right ones with them. Also, the Christians had no access to their Holy Scriptures.
People did write books and presented them as if they were from God.

There used to be two Jews left in Afghanistans. Ironically, they hated each other. A few years ago one of them moved to Israel. There were a few newspaper articles about this.

What I find even more sad is the history and culture of the Persian Jews - they even had their own langauge! Yet Iran and Israel are considered enemies now.

THE FIRST FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WERE JEWS
and so their scriptures were the Jewish scriptures. They read them and studied them, praying their prayers and singing their songs.

lol!

How nice, if both were still communicating. May be the 2nd last wanted the last to emigrate.

Iran and Israel were friends during the Shah's regime. The enmity grew only because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As the Arab leaders were docile and provided only lip service, Iran became more vocal and rhetorics flew from both sides.

The Persian Jews still have their Scriptures in Hebrew. However, the learned Rabbis handle that. The situation is similar to that of non-Arab Muslims, most of whom cannot speak Arabic but can pray in Arabic..

There was also no religion left behind by Jesus. Disciples were dumb and did not teach anything.

What was there for them to teach?

Many verses are quoted in the Gospels!
