“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 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.

<quoted text>Interesting read! I'm reminded of Carlos the Jackal, only he wasn't Chechen.
Excerpt:
Another thought is that they werenÂ’t really taking directions from anyone. You can see how the older brother, Tamerlan, might have felt like a failure, disappointing his father by dropping out of college, with a boxing career that never materialized. People who knew them say the younger brother was under his sway. Probably someone like that, who felt so powerless, would be very attracted to the powerful super-warrior image of Chechens. That along with the fiery certainty of Islamist rhetoric might be pretty tempting to a young man who felt weak and lost.
It is interesting. The boys were Chechen but yet they were part of the post-Stalin Chechen diaspora that was exiled to Kyrghizstan. So they werent (as)Chechen. Then they spent some of their formutive years in the US - though Boston is obviously not the heartland - if anything their neighborhood was mainly Jewish/Israeli and Arab. So I could see the older one needing an identity and becoming "Chechen" via extremists, or Islam via extremists, or some type of combo. Its possible that the Chechen culture played virtually no role in his indoctrination other than providing him the gateway to encounter Islamic extremists....

rabbee: yeah! just like catholicism, is a seperate religion from the inquisition.

given the chance to rear their ugly head, all religions have done that. as long as they only thought, they could get away with it.

To be call idiot is the least, because as soon as one criticizes about Muhammad, that Muslim, in most cases, will try to phisically hurt you, if not killing you.

I guess such an ordinary behaviour is not considered radical Islam but civilized Islam, hence they are right, after all.

all religions have, their bad cop vs good cop thingie going today.

but the fact is, since all religions today are biased with evil. they shall have a range, of looking good on one side, and being totally horrible on the other.

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.

For our purposes: Definition of RADICAL

2: of or relating to the origin: fundamental
3a: very different from the usual or traditional: extreme

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!
