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?”

I assume he was in his warrior mode - he would be wearing military gear not royal gear. Plus, when I think of royal gear, I think of white European kings, not tribal warrior chiefs of the desert hills.

<quoted text>This is why I prefer Maimonides the realist, because Mohammad would simply NOT "leave the rest of us the F alone." How could he? His mandate was LARGE; it encompassed ALL the worlds!!!

Granted, Mohammad preferred Christians to Jews, but that didn't stop his soldiers from sacking "unbelieving" Constantinople, murdering the men, and enslaving the surviving women and children. It is why the Hagia Sophia is now a Turkish museum instead of an Orthodox Cathedral.
Interesting point.

My take on the Yemenite would be that he acceped the notion of Mohammed the (misunderstood and misapplied) prophet but not the legitimacy of the details of the koran.

So I think he is around, but someone, hopefully a caseworker, has him on a short leash.

was david a product of...incest? or
was his lineage shadowed and shameful: his father descended from Moab, a product of incest between Lot and his daughter after Sodom's destruction, down through Ruth, a Moabite convert of convenience.

My! How you DO like repeating yourself!
For the "international readers": Last year I e-mailed the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston (my home Diocese) to express my thanks that the RCC was trying to mend relations with the Jews, but also to ask why it had taken so long for the RCC to begin to understand what Jesus had taught about human relations.
In short, you're a liar.
Hey non-gentile..bu(tteredbuttturd lick)ford...not many Christians agree with your rubbish!

Do you know the best way to mend relationship with non-gentiles?
Help them get rid of the Gospels.....they are doing it covertly...if you help them, they can do it overtly.

What the hell do you know aout Christianity you fool.

The inner sanctum knows what non-gentiles are doing.
They are taking their time to drop the non-gentiles from a great height...

You know nothing...buttboy..you are just a paid agent..

<quoted text>Phallus Phace,
Your "prophet" had no problem with Jesus or Mary, six centuries removed. His problem was with those Jews who rejected HIM to his face as a demonstrably false prophet.
buttboy...just because you are a clueless uneducated woodglue sniffer does not mean that we can forget Christian persecution and destruction of the JEWISH race over 1800 years as CHRIST KILLERS...

This would never have happened if the idiots accepted Quran that gives the non-gentiles a "get out of gas chamber" card.
Stop pumping lies you fool...

READ the Jewish books!!
They have turned ONE GOD into their OWN slave god....
You simply have no wisdom....
Islam gives DIRECT access to the ONE TRUE GOD, by ANY human irrespective of their race colour or nationality.
Buttboy...your fake claims about the Holy Prophet makes even less sense with your "gospels" that CLEARLY accuse JEWS of the MURDER of your mangod!
Your lovely "john" is doing a great job insulting the JEWS as CHRIST KILLERS.
Dumb buttboy...
If the HOLY PROPHET hated the JEWS, he would NEVER claim that Jesus the JEW was a good man of God and his JEWISH Mother Mary was a pure woman.
If the HOLY PROPHET hated the JEWS, he would have joined biogts like you and branded JEWS as CHRIST KILLERS.
You are dismissed...you are an insignificant ignorant glue sniffer...
I would love to visit your "church" incognito and make you kneel down in front of me...
I may do it one day because you will never know that I am a Muslim!
Rock on..buttboy..

Later views
Very few texts in Judaism refer to or take note of Muhammad. Those that do reject Muhammad's self-proclamation of receiving divine revelations from God and label him instead as a false prophet.
......
Exactly what is expected of non-gentiles!!
They humiliated Jesus...stripped him naked..broke his bones..and stuck him on a pole to die as a condemned false prophet!
If they can do this to their own man...why should they accept a semite from Arabia?
Do non-gentiles accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah or even a prophet?
yes or no?

Actually, Buford is keenly aware of my position. Acceptance, as I understand it, is a Christian term. Therefore it has no meaning to me. I dont reject Jesus, rather I dont think about Jesus. He has no meaning in my system.

Personally I have no reason not to think that there are many prophets out there, each with their message particular to their group. Prophecy has nothing to do with messianism.

The problem with non-gentiles is quite obvious..

If you have any decency you will admit that Islam is more charitable towards the Jews compared with Gospels and Gentile Christians.

More on the topic of Jews and Mohammed

----------
http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/b...

....Interestingly, Medina also had a sizeable Jewish community, which had probably moved there after being expelled from Palestine by the Romans. Muhammad respected the Jews, and his early teachings appeared to borrow from Jewish tradition. The Jews began to distance themselves from Muhammad, however, when he became critical of their not recognizing him as a prophet.

Once it was clear the Jews would not accept him, Muhammad began to minimize or eliminate the Jewish influence on his beliefs. For example, he shifted the direction of prayers from Jerusalem to Mecca, made Friday his special day of prayer, and renounced the Jewish dietary laws (except for the prohibition on eating pork). Originally, he said the Arabs were descendants of Abraham through his son Ishmael, but in the Koran Abraham's connection to the Jews is denied, with Muhammad asserting that Abraham is only the patriarch of Islam, not Judaism as well, because he "surrendered himself to Allah."

One of the immediate consequences of Muhammad's frustration was the expulsion of two Jewish tribes from Medina and the murder of all the members of a third Jewish tribe (except for the women and children, who were sold into slavery). But even worse for the long-term treatment of the Jews were a number of inflammatory statements about Jews that Muhammad made that appear in the Koran — which, over the years, stoked Arab/Islamic anti-Semitism....
