Who Is Allah?

There are 256357 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?”

Contradictions between the Barnabas Gospel and the Qur’an

There are other contradictions between the Qur’an and the Gospel of Barnabas which cannot be satisfactorily explained. One relates to the birth of Jesus as it is told in each book. The Gospel says this about the moment of his delivery:

The virgin was surrounded by a light exceeding bright and brought forth her son without pain. Gospel of Barnabas, para 3

This statement has no Biblical equivalent but parallels Catholic beliefs of the Middle Ages. It is further evidence that the Gospel of Barnabas is a forgery composed up to fifteen centuries after the time of Christ. What is significant for Muslims, however, is that it totally disagrees with the Qur’an which says of Mary and the birth of Jesus:

And the pangs of childbirth drove her unto the trunk of the palm tree. Surah 19:23

There is little room here for Muslims to maintain their cherished belief that they have, in the Gospel of Barnabas, an original Gospel which is consistent with the Qur’an and Islamic tradition. It is not surprising that many Muslim scholars have, in recent times, rejected the Gospel as a forgery. Nonetheless there are still many Muslim writers, often well aware of the overwhelming evidences against it, who still promote it as an authentic text.

Muslim Brotherhood Fact Sheet

The Muslim Brotherhood logo fits its motto:

"Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!”[1]

· The Brotherhood’s goal is to turn the world into an Islamist empire. The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is a revolutionary fundamentalist movement to restore the caliphate and strict shariah (Islamist) law in Muslim lands and, ultimately, the world. Today, it has chapters in 80 countries.

“It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”—Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna[2]

· The Brotherhood wants America to fall. It tells followers to be “patient” because America “is heading towards its demise.” The U.S. is an infidel that “does not champion moral and human values and cannot lead humanity.”—Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[3]

· The Brotherhood claims western democracy is “corrupt,”“unrealistic.” and “false.”
—Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef [4]

· The Brotherhood calls for jihad against “the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.”—Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[5]

The Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat in 1981 for making peace with the hated “Zionist entity.”[6]It also assassinated Egypt’s prime minister in 1948 and attempted to assassinate President Nasser in 1954.[7]

· Hamas is a “wing of the Muslim Brotherhood,” according to the Hamas Charter, Chapter 2. The Charter calls for the murder of Jews, the “obliteration” of Israel and its replacement with an Islamist theocracy.

· The Brotherhood supports Hezbollah’s war against the Jews. Brotherhood leader Mahdi Akef declared he was “prepared to send 10,000 jihad fighters immediately to fight at the side of Hezbollah” during Hezbollah’s war against Israel in 2006.[8]

· The Brotherhood glorifies Osama bin Laden. Osama is “in all certainty, a mujahid (heroic fighter), and I have no doubt in his sincerity in resisting the occupation, close to Allah on high.”—Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 2007[9]

· The Brotherhood “sanctioned martyrdom operations in Palestine.…They do not have bombs, so they turn themselves into bombs. This is a necessity.”— Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Dec. 17, 2010[10]

· The Brotherhood advocates violent jihad: The “change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life,” said Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi in a September 2010 sermon.[11] Major terrorists came out of the Muslim Brotherhood, including bin Laden’s deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (mastermind of the 9/11 attacks).[12]

The Brotherhood advocates a deceptive strategy in democracies: appear moderate and use existing institutions to gain power.“The civilizational-jihadist process…is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious overall other religions,” reads a US Muslim Brotherhood 1991 document.[13] It believes it can conquer Europe peacefully:“After having been expelled twice, Islam will be victorious and reconquer Europe....I am certain that this time, victory will be won not by the sword but by preaching and [Islamic] ideology.”— Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi,“Fatwa,” 2003[14]

· The Brotherhood uses democracy, but once in power it will replace democracy with fundamentalist shariah law because it is the “true democracy.”“The final, absolute message from heaven contains all the values which the secular world claims to have invented....Islam and its values antedated the West by founding true democracy.”
—Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 2007[15]

· The Brotherhood’s view of women’s rights is to subjugate and segregate women: The ideal society would include “a campaign against ostentation in dress and loose behaviour…segregation of male and female students; private meetings between men and women, unless within the permitted degrees of relationship, to be counted as a crime for which both will be censured…prohibition of dancing and other such pastimes." —Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna,“Five Tracts”[16]

· The Brotherhood supports Female Genital Mutilation:“[the Americans] wage war on Muslim leaders, the traditions of its faith and its ideas. They even wage war against female circumcision, a practice current in 36 countries, which has been prevalent since the time of the Pharaohs.”—Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 2007[17]

· The Brotherhood will not treat non-Muslim minorities, such as Coptic Christians, as equals.“Allah's word will reign supreme and the infidels' word will be inferior.”—Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[18]

The Brotherhood refuses to commit to continuing the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.[19]Muslim Brotherhood leaders have said that “as far as the movement is concerned, Israel is a Zionist entity occupying holy Arab and Islamic lands...and we will get rid of it no matter how long it takes.”—Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 2005 and 2007[20]

· The Brotherhood has anti-Semitic roots. It supported the Nazis, organized mass demonstrations against the Jews with slogans promoting ethnic cleansing like “Down with the Jews!” and “Jews get out of Egypt and Palestine!” in 1936; carried out a violent pogrom against Egypt’s Jews in November 1945; and made sure that Nazi collaborator and Palestinian Mufti al-Husseini was granted asylum in Egypt in 1946.[21]

· The Brotherhood remains virulently anti-Semitic.“Today the Jews are not the Israelites praised by Allah, but the descendants of the Israelites who defied His word. Allah was angry with them and turned them into monkeys and pigs….There is no doubt that the battle in which the Muslims overcome the Jews [will come]....In that battle the Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them." —Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi[22]

The point was that Matthew churned out big lies. There was no massacre of little boys carried out.
If there were any massacre, it would have been reported and recorded in the Jewish History and also in the Roman History.
So, you should not give a rat's arse about Matthew's junk and stuff.
BMZ---The point was that Matthew churned out big lies. There was no massacre of little boys carried out.

HughBe--- Greetings BMZ, I am going to make a few observations.

1. The Matthew that you speak of was a JEW.
2. This same JEW, Matthew, reported and recorded his JEWISH History.
3. Matthew the Jew was not writing his Jewish history for non-Jews but for the benefit of his fellow Jews.
4. Let me give a VERY GOOD reason why the massacre was not recorded by OTHER Jewish sources beside Matthew's account. It is to DISCREDIT Christianity and to support the programme of DECEPTION of the Jewish people by the rabbis.
Also, do NOT underestimate the CORRECTION of scriptures and other history by the rabbis and their disciples.

Hamas Charter

http://www.thejerusalemfund.org/www.thejerusa...

Article Thirty-Two (in part): The Attempts to Isolate the Palestinian People

World Zionism and Imperialist forces have been attempting, with smart moves and considered planning, to push the Arab countries, one after another, out of the circle of conflict with Zionism, in order, ultimately, to isolate the Palestinian People. Egypt has already been cast out of the conflict, to a very great extent through the treacherous Camp David Accords, and she has been trying to drag other countries into similar agreements in order to push them out of the circle of conflict. Hamas is calling upon the Arab and Islamic peoples to act seriously and tirelessly in order to frustrate that dreadful scheme and to make the masses aware of the danger of coping out of the circle of struggle with Zionism. Today it is Palestine and tomorrow it may be another country or other countries. For Zionist scheming has no end, and after Palestine they will covet expansion from the Nile to the Euphrates. Only when they have completed digesting the area on which they will have laid their hand, they will look forward to more expansion, etc. Their scheme has been laid out in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and their present [conduct] is the best proof of what is said there.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Protocols_of...

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion or The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion is an antisemitic hoax purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination. It was first published in Russia in 1903, translated into multiple languages, and disseminated internationally in the early part of the 20th century. Henry Ford funded printing of 500,000 copies that were distributed throughout the US in the 1920s.

Adolf Hitler and the Nazis publicized the text as if it were a valid document, although it had already been exposed as fraudulent. After the Nazi Party came to power in 1933, it ordered the text to be studied in German classrooms. The historian Norman Cohn suggested that Hitler used the Protocols as his primary justification for initiating the Holocaust —his "warrant for genocide".

The Protocols purports to document the minutes of a late 19th-century meeting of Jewish leaders discussing their goal of global Jewish hegemony by subverting the morals of Gentiles, and by controlling the press and the world's economies. It is still widely available today and even now sometimes presented as a genuine document, whether on the Internet or in print in numerous languages.

But they did not have high resolution night vision, which Jesus had. Please read this story from Mark 6 and look out for Stefano's 'Grande' comment:
"45 Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray.
47 Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land.
48 He saw the disciples straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake......."
Having studied the three accounts, I conclude that the boat had not gone far out at all.
If it had been stuck up at about 4 miles, Jesus would not have been able to see men straining at oars in the dark, even if it were a full moon night. And how could have those men seen Jesus walking in the dark stormy night?
I think the boat was stuck up all night, a few metres away from the shore and Jesus waded in to help and the fools thought he was walking on water.
The story is absurd!
Why did you call me out for this?

I believe in Muhammad's testimony for a very good reason and that is:
Your God is only one God! There is no other besides God.
So the good reason why you believe in Muhammad, leaving aside all the absurdity recorded in Quran, that them alone are enough to disbelieve him, is because he introduced to pagans the monotheistic idea of god? LOL

Do you have the capacity of thinking of a child? Have you ever thought to use the brain to reason?

Has ever passed in your mind that is not the number of gods the main factor to believe or reject a god or religion but the evidences that a prophet, messenger, spokesman ect brought to the folks?

As far as we know Muhammad had brought no evidences at all to support the claim of the existence of his god.

I do wonder why you tell to others to think hard when from your post that attitude totally miss?

For absurd stories, you must read the not-so-holy Bible.
About the absurd story of Jesus walking on water, my point could be read again here:

Nothing can walk on water. Either you swim or float or dive. If Jesus had tried that, he would have drowned.

Earlier I got bmz to admit that his assertion that God actually spoke to Mohammad was something that Mohammad never said happened.

(I then called him a liar, not that he even realizes it.)

Howeever, Mohammad DID speak about this "Jibreel" creature who supposedly gave him "revelations" from "Allah" about things that supposedly occurred many centuries before Mohammad ever went into the prophet/warlord business.

The thing is, this "Jibreel" creature didn't introduce itself by name. Rather, it was Mohammad's wife's quasi-Christian cousin Waraqa who suggested that it was "Jibreel," a.k.a., "Gabriel," who was recorded in the Hebrew and Christian SCRIPTURES as being an angellic messenger sent by God, so OF COURSE, it only made sense that the creature that appeared to Mohammad in some fashion and scared him so badly that he went running home to mommy Khadija like a scared rabbit could only have been the same messenger "Jibreel/Gabriel" that appeared to Mary and others because, after all, Mohammad could not possibly have had a psychotic meltdown after spending so many days alone in that dark, dark cave...right?

In many cases when bmz is caught in error in islamic doctrine, the fool does not admit openly his mistakes, but try to ignore them.

The funny thing is that a teenager like Mary is said to have encounter Jibreel, but she wasn't that shocked from that, while Muhammad was so shocked that he got the fever. What a masculine prophet they have.
