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?”

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.
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..

LISTEN TO ME!
SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!!!!

not many people could read and write and if they could they would have needed to be able to afford texts!!!!! RIGHT?
And because the desciples were being executed for what they taught, Matthew wrote his teachings down!....then he too was executed!

Let us examine below some valid questions and answers :

To begin with, call us Jews. Thats what we call ourselves. Unless you are incapable of even that attempt of respect.
Then, perhaps, then, I might reconsider not labeling you a Jew hater.
This is comical Frijoles.
You can be a good human without telling others what to do!
There should be no conditions.

When do you properly agree that Palestinians are Semitic without mentioning their "non-gentile" origin?
Are Arabs Semites?

Returning to Gentiles and Non- Gentiles, I think "Non-Gentile" is much better that the much maligned and derisory "Jew".

Who chose to call us "gentiles"? The non-gentiles!!

If you can call us Gentiles why can't we call you "Non-Gentiles"?

Also we can now properly define people and religions:

There is "Non-Gentile" Judaism and the rest of the world's religion are "Gentile":

Now we have:

Non-Gentile Judaism

Gentile Christianity
Gentile Islam
Gentile Hinduism
Gentile Buddhism
Gentile Sikhism
Gentile Jainism
Gentile Paganism
Gentile Shinto
Gentile Taoism

Can you see now?

The Gentiles have been kept divided through their religions.

It is time the Gentiles united.

According to the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise, a Jewish presence in Afghanistan goes back around 2,700 years. While there were possibly 80,000 Jews in the region in the 12th century, the number was about 40,000 in 1839.

“The decline came in 1870 after Afghan Muslim authorities enacted anti-Jewish measures, triggering a mass exodus to Central Asia, Persia and Palestine,” states the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.“The 1933 assassination of King Nadit Shah triggered another anti-Jewish campaign. Jews were banished from most Afghan cities, limiting them to Kabul, Balkh or Herat. In addition, Jews were forbidden to leave town without a permit and forced to pay special taxes.

“By the time Israel was created in 1948, approximately 5,000 Jews remained in Afghanistan, but they could not legally immigrate. Once the restriction was lifted in 1951, most Afghan Jews made their way to Israel. By 1969, only 300 Jews lived in Afghanistan, most of whom left in 1979 after the Soviet invasion. In 1996, 10 Jews remained in Afghanistan, nearly all in Kabul. In 2005, there were two Jews in Afghanistan.”

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.
Braindead Muslim Zealot,

I didn't deliberately misquote, I simply copied the verse as written at http://prophetofdoom.net/Islamic_Quotes_Hell.... and then I pasted it here.

The REAL issue here isn't whether or not your "prophet" terrorized Jews who had allied against him by killing SOME and making captives out of MANY, while seizing all of their property as BOOTY to be distributed among his cutthroats while he kept the better portion,(including Safiyah). The REAL issue here is the FACT that your "prophet" was a proven liar who spouted "fables of the ancients" as though they were the revelations of "Allah," which is why the Jews rightly rejected him as a deluded fool in the first place.

You've never even considered this as a possibility, have you.

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?
Jews were murdered by "Christians" for no good reason, whereas your "prophet" murdered Jews because "Allah" inspired him to do just that.

WHAT BECAME OF THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS THE CHRIST?:

ANDREW
According to Hippolytus:
'Andrew preached to the Scythians [modern day Georgia] and Thracians [modern day Bulgaria], and was crucified, suspended on an olive tree, at Patrae, a town of Achaia [Greece]; and there too he was buried'.

BARTHOLOMEW
According to Hippolytus, Bartholomew preached in India:
Bartholomew, again, preached to the Indians, to whom he also gave the Gospel according to Matthew, and was crucified with his head downward, and was buried in Allanum, a town of the great Armenia [modern day southern Georgia].

EUSEBIUS
in his Church History, confirms the ministry of Bartholomew in India, and adds an eye witness account:

About that time, Pantaenus, a man highly distinguished for his learning, had charge of the school of the faithful in Alexandria... Pantaenus...is said to have gone to India. It is reported that among persons there who knew of Christ, he found the Gospel according to Matthew, which had anticipated his own arrival. For Bartholomew, one of the apostles, had preached to them, and left with them the writing of Matthew in the Hebrew language, which they had preserved till that time.----(Book 5, Chapter 10)

JAMES, Son of Alphaeus
Hippolytus identifies that James was stoned to death in Jerusalem:
'And James the son of Alphaeus, when preaching in Jerusalem, was stoned to death by the Jews, and was buried there beside the temple.'

JAMES, Son of Zebedee
James was the brother of John,
According to the Book of Acts in the New Testament, James was killed by Herod:

JOHN, brother of James and son of Zebedee
John was one of the few disciples that did not die a cruel death, but of "old age".
According to Hippolytus, John was banished by Domitian to the Isle of Patmos, and later died in Ephesus:

John, again, in Asia, was banished by Domitian the king to the isle of Patmos, in which also he wrote his Gospel and saw the apocalyptic vision; and in Trajan's time he fell asleep at Ephesus, where his remains were sought for, but could not be found.

MATTHEW/LEVI
According to Hippolytus:
Matthew wrote the Gospel in the Hebrew tongue, and published it at Jerusalem, and fell asleep at Hierees, a town of Parthia.\224 [Parthia is near modern day Tehran]

SIMON/PETER
Irenaeus (c. 180 A.D.) mentions that Peter and Paul founded the Church in Rome:
Eusebius records that Peter was put to death under Nero in Rome.
Hippolytus confirmed the fact that Peter was crucified by Nero in Rome:
'Peter preached the Gospel in Pontus, and Galatia, and Cappadocia, and Betania, and Italy, and Asia, and was afterwards crucified by Nero in Rome with his head downward, as he had himself desired to suffer in that manner.'

PHILIP
According to Hippolytus, Philip preached and was executed in what today is eastern Turkey:
'Philip preached in Phrygia, and was crucified in Hierapolis with his head downward in the time of Domitian, and was buried there.'

SIMON the Zealot
According to Hippolytus, Simon the Zealot was the second Bishop of Jerusalem.

THADDAEUS/JUDAS son of James
Hippolytus records:
'Jude, who is also called Lebbaeus, preached to the people of Edessa, and to all Mesopotamia, and fell asleep at Berytus, and was buried there'.

THOMAS
Hippolytus records that Thomas was an active missionary, and that he met his fate in India:
'And Thomas preached to the Parthians, Medes, Persians, Hyrcanians, Bactrians, and Margians, and was thrust through in the four members of his body with a pine spear at Calamene, the
