Who Is Allah?

There are 243370 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?”

the least you could do, is bias your religions at a closer to holy level. so the worst, evil range you might get is - hey! somebody stole my lollypop.

but as is, your religions of today. have been biased well too much, into the depraved zones. because you are going to have, a range above and below the highest standard you set.

and this whole world, definatly does not need. to lower your standards, any lower against and away from G-D. than they all, are today.

The real question up for debate is whether radical Islam is a separate religion from Islam, Islam itself, or somewhere in between. BMZ takes the position that it IS a separate religion, and you take the position that it IS Islam itself. Both of you would agree that the value system is not very nice.

Looking at the original Islam that Mohammad himself lived and breathed and ruthlessly enforced against all perceived enemies "of Allah and His Messenger," both foreign and domestic, I can't help but think that Mohammad's "radical" Islam is one that BMZ rejects as a "separate religion," even as BMZ maintains the necessary fiction that his own Islam is true to Mohammad's model. IOW, there's a "radical" disconnect at work here.

Islam is extremist since the explicit aim of the fanatical duo of Allah-Muhammad is, as declared in the Quran, the conversion of the whole world to Islam. No other faith but Islam will be accepted of people, says the book. Besides, Muslims can declare war if the spread or observance of Islam is blocked and not surprisingly in typical unjust fashion non-Muslims can be executed or war declared on them if they seek to spread their faith in an Islamic land. Further, anyone questioning the logic of the Quran or leaving the fold of Islam is viewed with the greatest displeasure and the choicest curses or abuses that may translate into corporal punishment are reserved for them. The levying of jiziya on non-Muslims living under Islamic law and the compulsory extraction of zakat from Muslims are clear indicators of its dictatorial nature. So, neither do Muslims or non-Muslims have any say in the matter.

You declare them lunatic for the purpose to justify your false god, and the right to murder Christians under your false gods evil laws.
Under Muslims evil laws murdering Christians is their way to inter into Muhammad's whore house paradise.
That is what you are all about.
That is what Muhammad's religion of Islam is about.
You falsely accuse Christians so Muslim can murder them under your false gods evil laws.
You know you are worse than the men, who penned the books and letters of the New Testament. Your incoherence and off-topic responses matches those writers.

I had actually written this:

"It is a lie against Jesus and is also a great blasphemy against God, the true LORD Almighty.

Could you please tell us the names of those ignorant fools, who made that junk statement?

It would have been different if the Son of Mary had said that himself. And in that case, we would have declared your Jesus a lunatic person."

So, why can't you tell us the name or the names of the bloody fool or the bloody fools, who first made the statement that Jesus is God?

Surely there must have been some ignorant fools, who said that. Tell us! name those clowns, please.

As far as we are concerned, Jesus never made silly and absurd jokes such as, "I am the son of God', "I am God in flesh" or "I am God" or "I am the Father in heaven". Jesus never unloaded any of the mentioned Horse Shit.

All bull shit!

Muahmmad never boasted. He was not a Christian or a follower of Jesus' fairy tales.

I have told you that Hadith is a collection of tales, narrations and many ridiculous stories, just like your New Testament. Most of the material in both books is not trustworthy and not reliable.

I had already told you not to blame the Jewess. If the lady had poisoned, all the companions would have also died around the same time, ignorant fool!

Again, its the radical Islam vs Islam debate again. Though, you yourself just suggested the clarification that the extremists werent Islamic but radical Muslims. So labels do get fuzzy. But that doesnt excuse the black and white behavior of Shamma.

The point being that it is really difficult to use the far past as a benchmark for ANY religion. The real question is the behavior of the practictioners now. Is there is benchmark? I.E. is there today a nonradical Islam to judge extremists as extreme?

You say no, but BMZ is Muslim, and he offers his views as the center. I would have to accept that an insider practitioner, and not an outsider like you or me gets to define what the center of their religion is, or at least is in a more credible position to do so.

Good question and the answer is a firm NO!

If they had, they would have been members of the Jewish faith, would have attended Synagogues, would have prayed only in the Synagogues and would not have kicked their feet, instead of bending the knees in the churches upon hearing Jesus' name.

Labels do get fuzzy and I would blame the Western Media and Christian scholars for making them fuzzy and funny.

The religion is Islam and the followers are Muslims. Initially, Muslims were called Mohammadan by ignorant scholars of Christianity, who were bigots.

And then came the term Islamist. lol! Another term came recently 'the militant Islam'.

The so-called extremists are still Muslims.

If Shamma had his way, he would have been far more dangerous than OBL. Thank God Almighty that Christianity was fully tamed after WWII.

Muhammad failed to dedtect the poison in his food but realized that something was amiss on eating the food and quickly warned his companions about the same. It is said that Ayesha and Abu Bakar with the help of Omar were behind the incident. I doubt this version. Well, whoever poisoned him the fact remains tha t Muhammad had a most horrible death. Muhammad did not die on the spot but suffered for many months before passing away in great pain . I guess it was a poison that worked slowly and made the victim suffer a lot before dying in anguish., So, Muhammad could not detect the poison in his food nor could he neutralize the poison in his body which reveals that this asura , Muhammad, had almost zero yogic powers. ROFL.
