Who Is Allah?

There are 254894 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?”

This is comical Frijoles.
You can be a good human without telling others what to do!
There should be no conditions.
When do you properly agree that Palestinians are Semitic without mentioning their "non-gentile" origin?
Are Arabs Semites?
Returning to Gentiles and Non- Gentiles, I think "Non-Gentile" is much better that the much maligned and derisory "Jew".
Who chose to call us "gentiles"? The non-gentiles!!
If you can call us Gentiles why can't we call you "Non-Gentiles"?
Also we can now properly define people and religions:
There is "Non-Gentile" Judaism and the rest of the world's religion are "Gentile":
Now we have:
Non-Gentile Judaism
Gentile Christianity
Gentile Islam
Gentile Hinduism
Gentile Buddhism
Gentile Sikhism
Gentile Jainism
Gentile Paganism
Gentile Shinto
Gentile Taoism
Can you see now?
The Gentiles have been kept divided through their religions.
It is time the Gentiles united.
Alex---When do you properly agree that Palestinians are Semitic without mentioning their "non-gentile" origin?

HughBe--- you are too awful, Alex. Why do you insist on truth? This insistence makes you EVIL, Alex.

Alex---Who chose to call us "gentiles"? The non-gentiles!!

HughBe-- evil questions.

Alex---If you can call us Gentiles why can't we call you "Non-Gentiles"?

HughBe--- why do you insist on asking intelligent questions, you evil man?
Don't be foolish and believe that Frijoles' words apply to you, they ONLY apply to him. Recall his words, "To begin with, call us Jews. Thats what WE CALL ourselves. Unless you are incapable of even that attempt of respect."

Your post appears to be full of evil and so I shall read no more.

Sahih International
O you who were given the Scripture, believe in what We have sent down [to Muhammad], confirming that which is with you, before We obliterate faces* and turn them toward their backs or curse them as We cursed the sabbath-breakers. And ever is the decree of Allah accomplished.

*It is MANY, not SOME faces that are threatened with obliteration here, and most probably Jewish.

Please try to respond to my comments below. I am confident in your ability to do so based on the fact that you are well schooled by your overlords plus you are an intelligent man. My memory tells me that you are a graduate of an Ivy League college but I could be wrong. However,if correct it confirms your intelligence.

Using scriptures ONLY define the word Jew.
Using scriptures ONLY tell me if God made any covenants with a people called Israel/Jews.
Using scriptures ONLY tell me when did the seed of Israel become Israelites.

Here is help:"And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the ISRAELITES dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go." Exodus 9:7

Using basic common sense ONLY tell me who are Israelites.

Finally, quote the scripture that supports the idea that Jacob's name was changed to ISRAEL because of a COVENANT. In other words, demonstrate that the name Israel came about because of a COVENANT.

And because the desciples were being executed for what they taught, Matthew wrote his teachings down!....then he too was executed!
Jesusess,

Jesus did not come with anything new and also did not bring anything new.

Matthew copied from Mark. Perhaps copying made him tired and he made blunders.

How come the ignorant fool Tabari forgot to mention the third? I mean Christianity, which was also there.

Anyway, it is true that two religions cannot exist in the same place. That is why the Jews kept Judaism in Israel as their religion. It is neither a Christian nor a Muslim state. Looks like Tabari's "prophesy" came true.

Compared with the size of Arabia, the Zionist entity was a peanut in size.

No, Arabia did not include the Zionist entity in the distant past. It is important to note that the Zionists actually appeared on the scene only about a hundred and twenty years ago.

Braindead Muslim Zealot,

I didn't deliberately misquote, I simply copied the verse as written at http://prophetofdoom.net/Islamic_Quotes_Hell .... and then I pasted it here.

The REAL issue here isn't whether or not your "prophet" terrorized Jews who had allied against him by killing SOME and making captives out of MANY, while seizing all of their property as BOOTY to be distributed among his cutthroats while he kept the better portion,(including Safiyah). The REAL issue here is the FACT that your "prophet" was a proven liar who spouted "fables of the ancients" as though they were the revelations of "Allah," which is why the Jews rightly rejected him as a deluded fool in the first place.

You've never even considered this as a possibility, have you.

* Ah yes, the bestial transformation of Sabbath-breakers, one of the many "fables of the ancients" that Mohammad "reimagined" and used as a threat because he was getting absolutely nowhere with the Jews.
Jesus used to talk to demons and snakes.

One day after he had his fish and chips, he retired and went into the desert. He then addressed a huge crowd of vipers and the snakes and said, "You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good?"

They ignored him.

Braindead Muslim Zealot,

This is why I posted the same passage from other, MUSLIM sources, passages that confirm that "SOME" Jews were killed, and that "MANY," were taken captive, which is why I commented that it REALLY didn't matter, because the FACT is that your "prophet" spouted JEWISH "fables of the ancients" as though they were the revelations of "Allah," which is why the Jews rejected him as a deluded fool in the first place and why they would gladly ally themselves against this murdering thief, rape-enabler, and enslaver of women and children.

Just being frank!

Al-Ahzab

Waanzala allatheena thaharoohum min ahli alkitabi min sayaseehim waqathafa fee quloobihimu alrruAAba fareeqan taqtuloona watasiroona fareeqan

Sahih International
And He brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts [so that] a party you killed, and you took captive a party.

Hmmm...how big is a "party?"

http://www.muslimaccess.com/quraan/arabic/033...

And those of the People of the Book who aided them - Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts.(So that) some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners.

Hmmm...it's "some" and "some" in this rendering, as also here: http://www.masjidtucson.org/quran/noframes/ch...

This site has LOTS of renderings:
http://www.alquranverse.com/33/26/

The Coalition

And He descended those who cooperated/supported (against) them , from The Book`s people from their fortresses/strong holds , and He threw/hurled in their hearts/minds the terror/fright, a group/party you kill, and a group/party you capture/imprison.

(group/party and group/party)

Ahmed Ali

He made those of the people of the Book who had helped (the tribes) descend from their forts, and filled their hearts with dread, so that you killed some and made many captive;

(some and many)

Faridul Haque

And He brought down from their forts, the People given the Book(s) who had supported them, and instilled awe into their hearts - you slay a group among them and another group you make captive

(group and group)

Other renderings have "some" and "others."

You shouldn't have done that. A liar will only use reference from another liar and that is exactly what you did.

It is good that I noticed that lie and brought it up.

You've never even considered this as a possibility, have you.
The Jews of Banu Nadir, Banu Qaynuqa and Banu Quraizah got the punishment, they deserved.
Period!

Even your pet source Wikipedia confirms that they were treacherous and conspired with the Meccan pagans. And they worked against the man, who had made peace between those Jewish tribes, who were fighting with each other.

Banu Nadir and Banu Qaynuqa begged to be allowed to go into exile and they were allowed. The leaders of Banu Quraizah, who had conspired with the pagans to annihilate the Prophet and Muslims, were killed.

Safiyah became the mother of all believers and never grumbled like the polemicists and you. Can you show me any ahaadith showing Safiyah talking against the Prophet and Islam? Nothing!

You should talk more about the millions of Jews killed by European Christians and also about those killed in Christian countries during WW II more often. While you are at it, tell us also about the Christian hate of the Jews that lasted for centuries.
