Who Is Allah?

There are 256361 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?”

Are you really that obtuse?
The reason I brought up the past was to try to demonstrate to you the folly of your argument. On one hand you are blaming muslims for killing, but on the other hand you dont blame Christians for killing people.
The error in your approach isnt whether one case is more RELEVANT, but they fact you are playing stereotypes for the present but are unwilling to accept them for the past.
PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE.
Some of these people who do the killing happen to be Muslim, just like as in the past where some of the people doing the killing happened to be Christian.
If you are going to play the stereotyping game you have to be fair and consistent.
NOTE how Buford handled the same issue. He is on here al the time knocking Muslims. But when the topic of the church came up, he did not hesitate for a moment to apologize for the past. Without even being asked. That way he was able to move forward with his criticism with some credibility and moral authority.
You, on the other hand, not only get hung up on revisionism (and miss the point of the argument ENTIRELY) but you confound your argument by adding new garbage such as Blood Libel.
I have no folly.
You do not read to well, nor do you understand what you read.
You have a mind that does not except reality.
The Jews are guilty of past Murder just as the Christians and Muslims were guilty of past Murder.
The difference is the Muslims are still committing murder in todays world and you refuse to admit that.

You refuse to accept the history of murder by the Jews and Muslims, only accuse Christians of past murder.

You are a sick person that refuses to accept reality.

The first mass killing of the Jews was carried out by the so-called People's Crusade, which attached itself to the army of knights and followed on behind them .... They came largely from Flanders.[But] they proceeded down the Rhine, where there had been large Jewish settlements, ever since Roman times, the oldest Jewish settlements in Europe. And they were really destroyed by these hordes, who felt that as a necessary preliminary to the Second Coming, it was necessary to kill all Jews. This was not the official Church doctrine. The official doctrine was that all Jews must be converted to Christianity before the Second Coming. But one way of settling this matter was to kill them, and there would be no unconverted Jewish left. And that's what they did, in very horrible massacres ....

The Jews have since the beginning of Christianity have persecuted the Christians.
Even today the Jew wants to remove the common accepted religious law of marriage between a man and a women and add the gay life style of gays as included within the marriage between a man and a women law.

The Crusades Devastated the Jewish Rhineland

The events of 1096 temporarily stopped the intellectual and social activity of Ashkenazic Jewry. Urban II’s call for the Crusade did more than arouse interest in the armies that went to Jerusalem. Two other groups formed, both of which harmed the Jews: itinerant preachers and bands of German peasants. For the most part, the itinerant preachers were only interested in exploiting the Jews financially, demanding money for provisions. The peasant groups were much more dangerous. These bands coalesced around a charismatic leader and engaged in spontaneous violence against Jews.

In the early stages of the Crusade, these latter groups destroyed the Jewish communities in Speyer, Worms, and Mainz. There are accounts of these peasants ruthlessly slaughtering defenseless people, attacking Jews while in synagogue, and storming royal buildings to massacre the Jews.

You are delusional, you are the only one my post is directed at.
Apparently you are you possessed with multiple personalities.
You are a loser Frijoes.
The more you push and shove the deeper you dig yourself in your own hole.
You are burring your self deep in your own hole with your own stupidity.

There is an ignorant fool here, who is very fond of "I am he" and he can take the he to mean his he.
The biblical Jesus never told any one openly who he was and if anyone said anything, he always added, "I am he".
I have been waiting to see Shaman, Paul WV and the new arrival John from the asshole of the earth (Australia) to write, "I Am He!"

Still holding your own with these rabid little shrews? LOL! I would have thought after 1000s of factual entries,and millions of heated arguments you would have converted this whole thread into submission to ALLAH-ALONE! They must be thicker than my ex,s Skull! LOL! Perhaps the inclusion of a little "zen-trickery" would soften up even the hardest skull here.Chat with the nearest buddhist acholite,they can give you great incite into the most stubborn of animals...The upright hairless Bi-pedz!

No ones hands are pure and clean with out stain in that era.
Do the Jews ever apologize for past murders of innocent people?
Have the Jew ever hid their crimes of murder of innocent people under their religious laws to justify murder?
Can you be truthful?
Up until 1932 the Jews justified their persecution and killings under their religious laws.
The same as Muslims were doing in the past using their religious laws to murder non-Muslims and are still murdering innocent people under their religious laws day.
And that is how you justify your own hate and bigotry.
In your mind there is no common era of peace and tranquility between
Christians and Jews.

You left out Hate and Bigotry.
The main cause of war between the peoples.
You pretend that Jews and Muslims are free of hate and bigotry.
So you fail in your attempt to correct me to side of your false reality.
