Who Is Allah?

“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?”

A prove muslims are in fact pagans, worshiping one of the pagan gods.
Another hint about the paganism of Islam is that it when it took parts of the Bible and Torah, it changed the the content of these scriptures. Thus in fact not only adding new 'knowledge' but also changing the old!
The Bible took the Old Testament from the Torah, WITHOUT CHANGING THE CONTENT...because Christians know it is in fact the Word of God and it is not corrupted. God does not send out twice his Word and let it be changed both times...
Another hint. All the prophets in the Bible and Torah came from the midst of the chosen people, the Jews...but Prophet Mohammed has no linkage to them...while the Quran admits that they are the chosen people.
According Quran prophets and their followers BEFORE Prophet Mohammed were already Muslim and were following Islam. They supposedly already called themselves Muslim and their religion Islam...but not ONE historian, whether muslim or non-muslim, recorded such 'muslim communities'. In fact there were no Muslim historians in those days. The only book that supports this claim is the same book that made this claim, namely the Quran.
Christians know...before Jesus there were no Christians, we don't even make such claims. And we acknowledge all Jewish scriptures to be true, from God and unchanged.
These are some of the hints of Islam being a pagan religion.

However, there are human beings, such as the Prophet Muhammad, and other prophets and saints, who have achieved the Perfect State and reflect the divine qualities.

I am not in disagreement with you. But in the case of BMZ my focus is slightly to the side of this. I am trying to get him to understand that his objection to Hamas should not only be on the basis of their religion, but on the basis that Hamas is anti-human. BMZ is basically saying that it is alright to be anti-human, just leave Islam out of it. I am going deeper than that, and asking him to understand the anti-humanity for what it is. Once he does, he can apply it as he likes.
No, you cannot say that Hamas is anti-human. The same can be said of Israel too.

I condemn their Charter because they bring Islam into it and that is not right. It is an Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

I have never suggested that it is alright to be anti-human. You are wrong there.

If you wish to put it that way, then let us be honest and agree that Israel has never been humane and is anti-human. The world has seen Israel's barbarity against an opponent, who does not have military might.

rabbee: no neither G-D or i, would continue to hate them. just as Moshe, and Avraham, were not true to G-D at first. and i am not about, to hate anyone on a true course with G-D. if i found any, in that direction. even if they are less advanced, or more advanced than i. the direction one is going in, is most important.

and remember according to TheTorah, i had failed at first too. and so it would be, hypocritical of me. to denounce even one, repenting soul. but it would be, hearless of me to not tell the truth. that might result, in stagnation or sadiation.

and i know how hard it is to even, take that first step in the right direction. when all of your worldly instincts, are telling you it is the wrong way. and your going to be going, against the mainstreams. and chances are you are going to be shunned, by the whole world.

even your own family and friend, are most likly to forsake you. this is how and why, i lost my first wife and children. o i still love them, even though they want nothing to do with me. but i had to keep going, i had to know the truth. my curiosity about what G-D said to me, i could no longer resist.

but it was still that second also unexpected visit with G-D. that actually cinched, the knot. i cannot even explain to anyone, the emotions i had after that. i was so angry and yet so much in love, with G-D at the same time. i was like a moth, to a flame. sometimes cursing the flame, but crying because you can't stay away from IT. but you have this unsationable desire, to talk about your LOVE.

Again, you are caught up in false equivalencies.

As a member of the human race you should be upset at Hamas. Not just as a muslim, but as a member of the human race.

I asked you to provide a citation from the Israeli constitution or equivalent government document where they advocate genocide. AN official charter or equivalent.

And finally, please answer these two questions:

1. How do you expect Israel, or any nation for that matter, to react when another entity fires hundreds (now thousands) of rockets at their civilian population (Including Jerusalem)

2. How do you negotiate "peace" with an organization that exists SOLEY to eliminate you?

Frijoles,
Hamas did not target the Temple Mount.
Jerusalem is a big city. The rockets did not land between Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Wailing Wall.
The people who fired the rockets had NO idea and NO control over where the rockets would fall - other than a certain range. Jerusalalem was target specifically on the basis of range and trajectory.

One of them fell in an Arab village within the municipality.

I used to think Jerusalem should be jointly owned. Now it is clear that the Palestinians dont respect the city, and therefore dont deserve it.

Note these points taken from the quote.

1. BLOCKING the way TO a relaxation of international TENSIONS.
2. Jews will NOT ALLOW PEACE in the WORLD, however hard statesmen and PEACE advocates TRY to bring it about.”

You should research the 1929 Hebron riots.http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/1929_Palestine_riots

That all said, Israel withdrew from their settlements in Gaza in 2005 with the full expectation that in return, everyone would live in peace. The borders were fully open for commerce. Within a few months, Hamas seized control of Gaza and soon afterwords started the rocket attacks.

Hebron massacre, 24 August 1929

On 20 August, Haganah leaders proposed to provide defence for 600 Jews of the Old Yishuv in Hebron, or to help them evacuate. However, the leaders of the Hebron community declined these offers, insisting that they trusted the A'yan (Arab notables) to protect them.

On 24 August 1929 in Hebron, Arab mobs attacked the Jewish quarter killing and raping men, women and children and looting Jewish property. They killed 65-68 Jews[39][40] and wounded 58, with some of the victims being tortured, or mutilated.[14][41][42][citatio n needed]

Sir John Chancellor, the British High Commissioner visited Hebron and later wrote to his son, "The horror of it is beyond words. In one house I visited not less than twenty-five Jews men and women were murdered in cold blood." Sir Walter Shaw concluded in The Palestine Disturbances report that "unspeakable atrocities have occurred in Hebron.[43]

The Shaw report described the attack, "Arabs in Hebron made a most ferocious attack on the Jewish ghetto and on isolated Jewish houses lying outside the crowded quarters of the town. More than 60 Jews – including many women and children – were murdered and more than 50 were wounded. This savage attack, of which no condemnation could be too severe, was accompanied by wanton destruction and looting. Jewish synagogues were desecrated, a Jewish hospital, which had provided treatment for Arabs, was attacked and ransacked, and only the exceptional personal courage displayed by Mr. Cafferata – the one British Police Officer in the town – prevented the outbreak from developing into a general massacre of the Jews in Hebron."[44]

The lone British policeman in the town, Raymond Cafferata, who, "killed as many of the murderers as he could, taking to his fists even", was overwhelmed, and the reinforcements he called for did not arrive for 5 hours - leading to severe recriminations.

Hundreds of Jews were saved by their Arab neighbours, who offered them sanctuary from the mob by hiding them in their own houses[14] while others survived by taking refuge in the British police station at Beit Ramon on the outskirts of the city. When the massacre ended, the surviving Jews were evacuated by the British.[14]

This massacre had a deep and lasting effect on the old and newer Jewish communities in Palestine.

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

Article Six: Peculiarity and Independence

The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinct Palestinian Movement which owes its loyalty to Allah, derives from Islam its way of life and strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine. Only under the shadow of Islam could the members of all regions coexist in safety and security for their lives, properties and rights. In the absence of Islam, conflict arises, oppression reigns, corruption is rampant and struggles and wars prevail.
