Who Is Allah?

There are 230625 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?”

all this worlds denial, of being here in TheStory of Creation. is only going to result, in the deluvian actually happening just again. just like it did all the other times, because of all the nobodies here in TheTorah while it is Happening.

congradulations! o-world you, all just murdered all of your grandchildren again. becaue of all you, nobodies here in this story of the physical creation. and after thousands and thousands of other third and fourth times. do not even try to tell me, G-D can't do this all over again. because of all your mental errors in witchraft causing idolatry.

this world has again, done everything possible to keep us all out of GanEden. so why should any of you, be supprized. supprized with all the hell and death today, in this world denouncing the truth.

and unless you are all, physically born again by me and your same grandmother. then none of you, shall ever exist ever again. but since oblivion is your mo, i have no objections to you all going there. i can do without all your, lying talking critter acts.

Wait, that's not what Hugh said. Hugh said that unless you voice positive support for an idea, you are not promoting it. There is no problem with remaining silent and support an idea through your silence and through your enforcement of the idea, so long as you never voice positive support.
What has that got to do with my repsonse to your sarky comments:

HughBe on the other hand KNOWS you folks corrupted God's words.
No DECENT God would play slave to only one group/race/tribe.
Your masters created such an antigentile mini slave god.
its time we dump such biased deities and embrace the TRUE GOD who LOVES ALL Creation equally and allows ALL creation equal access.

Take a FRESH pair of glasses...READ your books!! Do they look like God gave them to you? lol...these were edited/corrected by liars.
Time to stop promoting such a dreadful deity.
Thank you.

Well, Alex, to tell you the truth, I don't read more than 1% of the tripe that is spewed by either you or Buford. I do read a lot of Hugh's stuff; although some is skimmed. And, I was addressing Hugh's statements and not your or Buford's in my initial post. Once you interceded, I made an honest comment on how I see things.

You, BMZ and Buford have been going at it for quite some time. Almost all that is said is uncivil--on both sides. At one time Hugh and you were going round and round and now the allegiance has changed.

People make a living out of commenting on the social milieu. I was but doing the same. I haven't taken a position for or against either you or Buford, except to think that sometimes you both act childish. Since I haven't taken a position against you with Buford, does that mean I support you?

It's tripe because you are in denial eric.
READ your books!!
Do they look like books written by unbiased people? NO!
So please stop deluding yourself.
God will NEVER suck up to just one group of people!
Just look at good old judah...where did he suddenly make his appearance...how come other 11 tribes were coincidentally wiped off....
how come the GOD of multi-universes...becomes..god of jacob...and then of judah??lol...
The open seceret is this:
Non-gentiles "know" that they are the only favoured people of god!
No REAL God will be like that.
Therefore, non-gentiles have made up their own tribal, racist, sexist, bigoted, antigentile slave god of non-gentiles!
Just READ the opening of genesis...your minigod curses woman!
You know why?
it was OBVIOUSLY cooked up by a sexist male chauvinistic pig and NOT GOD!!
It is time for reality check...chuck the lies out and embrace the TRUE GOD of ALL CREATION, WHO ALLOWS ACCESS TO ALL CREATION ON EQUAL TERMS BECAUSE THE TRUE GOD IS MERCIFUL.

HughBe--- I am still waiting for your "CORRECTED" quote of my words.

Eric--I wasn't quoting you I was paraphrasing you.

HughBe--- Actually you were interpreting my words and NOT paraphrasing them. Also you should have phrased it differently. You should not have said "Hugh said..." when the truth is I said no such thing and it did not enter my mind.

Eric-- It's what you told us all on Monday.

HughBe--- WRONG. I said no such thing.

Eric--- These are the 3 examples I gave as to why the New Testament promoted slavery; and you told me that that wasn't so.

HughBe--- Let me tell you a story. Once there was a young man that was being arrested by the police. His father cried out to him and said, be respectful to the police and OBEY them. He then said to the police treat my son fairly and kindly.

Tell me, was the father supporting the arrest of his son?

I agree with those, who have judged you sooo well, Colonna. Did you even read and understand my post at all.
Even our in-house ignorant fool Buford, could not spot two things, which you wrote.
First the extremely hilarious part written by you:
"Let me take Mark's verses and substituite the Greek words with their English meanings.
Mark 15:43-45
"Joseph went to take Jesus and asked for his body. After getting a surprising shock that he had died SO FAST, Pilate gave him permission to take his corpse."
Mark 15:43-45???
I wrote that and now you have made it Mark 15:43. You made my day. How nice it would have been if you had not butted in the post that I ahd addressed to Buford, the clueless.
However, I must thank you for saying this: "In Greek soma means living body, while ptoma means corpse"
Check out if Buford agrees with you!!!
Regrettably, you have confirmed that you are still the arrogant and unteachable fool that you have ever been.

Go practice your Arabic recitations.

The last time you and I had such a conversation, I said that the Jews believe that G-d will accept all who abide by 7 principles known today as the Nohide laws. You discounted that.

You then said the Muslims believe that G-d will accept all who show minimum piety. I asked what was that minimum piety (because to me it seemed similar to the idea of the Noahide laws). You never answered that question. Could it be that minimum piety means becoming a Muslim?

Therefore, instead of speaking out against the evils of slavery, the New Testament told the slaves to capitulate. Instead of following Mosaic law, Paul told the escaped slave to go back to slavery. If you believe Alex, this is the promotion of slavery by silence--or worse because the early Christians aided and abetted the evil institution.

I wouldn't say that the early Christians aided and abetted slavery, necessarily, but that they saw this life and its "enslaving" institutions as impermanent. They were pilgrims here, and going to a much better place, so that no matter what they had to endure in this frame of reference from "the world, the flesh, and the devil," to quote John, they could abide in the hope of a far better post-death eternity with God, one that could even make cruel martyrdom bearable.

First-- Eric wrote--Hugh said that unless you voice positive support for an idea, you are not promoting it.

Second-- Eric wrote--If you believe Alex, this is the promotion of slavery by silence--or worse because the early Christians aided and abetted the evil institution.

Third-- HughBe writes-- So in speaking to Alex why not remind him of his words above? Why tell him about something that I did not say in the first place?

Viewpoint: Pro-Life and Feminism Aren’t Mutually Exclusive
http://ideas.time.com/2013/01/03/viewpoint-pr...

Excerpt:

From its early beginnings, feminism was a young women’s movement. Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, Charlotte Lozier and so many others began their suffragist work in their 20s. These women — the original feminists — understood that the rights of women cannot be built on the broken backs of unborn children. Anthony called abortion “child murder.” Paul, author of the original 1923 Equal Rights Amendment, said that “abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”

So the pro-life movement hasn’t changed the meaning of feminism, as has been suggested. It was the neo-feminists of the 1960s and ’70s who asked women to prize abortion as the pathway to equality.
...
Not only does this young generation of pro-life women shun the notion that abortion somehow liberates women; it views abortion as the civil- and human-rights cause of our day. Abortion is an injustice that permeates our society. Forty years after Roe v. Wade, we realize that a third of our peers are not here to share our progress and our hopes. It is our loss as well as theirs.

In his letter from a Birmingham, Ala., jail, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote,“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” It is in this same spirit of King and the original feminists that young pro-life women are rising up in increasing numbers to say abortion is a radical injustice that affects us all and must end. Achieving this will require more efforts to extend our understanding of the equal rights of the disabled unborn, prevent rape and make this crime against women a thing of the past, expand adoption and make the benefits of modern prenatal care and specialties like fetal surgery more available, so that even younger and sicker children can be spared an early death.

Our fight transcends elections and legislative battles because our fight is in our hearts. This is why, 40 years after Roe, our movement is still growing. We won’t give up; we can’t give up. Our fight is for life.

Rabbi Raphael gave statistics, did he make them up?
Understand, these exchanges are saying OUR rabbis cannot be TRUSTED because they "CORRECT" or PERVERT truth and HISTORY.
Idiot I never said he fabricated anything. If I implied it, i didnt mean to.

WHAT I SAID (FOURTH TIME)

was that 16 years later another scholar looked into the issue and had a slightly different conclusion.]

This is how historical studies work.

Each work IMPROVES on the previous, and/or criticizes the previous.

If you have a problem with that, adress it to the second work 16 years later, NOT ME.

More importantly, read BOTH works. At this point you havent even read the first work. All you do it cut and paste, and ground your comments on reputation instead of CONTENT.

Moving on. i.e. please dont bother replying the same reply again.
