Who Is Allah?

There are 220747 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?”

Frijoles---Um...yes

HughBe--- So, Rabbi Raphael FABRICATED the information that he wrote but your source did not.

You are a lowlife and once again out of your own mouth you have declared your rabbis to be FRAUDS and very CORRUPT.

There is nothing wrong or absurd in Greek, and those verses prove this.

In Greek soma means living body, while ptoma means corpse. Let me take Mark's verses and substituite the Greek words with their English meanings.

Mark 15:43-45
"Joseph went to take Jesus and asked for his body. After getting a surprising shock that he had died SO FAST, Pilate gave him permission to take his corpse.

As evident by those verses Joseph went to ask for the Nazarene's body and not corpse, because he thought the man was still alive, but he was shocked to know Jesus had died fast. Thus in the last verse is used the word corpse, that means dead body.

There is not problem with Greek language at all.

You proved that your mind is POOR and UNFIT to understand any language.
I agree with those, who have judged you sooo well, Colonna. Did you even read and understand my post at all.

Even our in-house ignorant fool Buford, could not spot two things, which you wrote.

First the extremely hilarious part written by you:

"Let me take Mark's verses and substituite the Greek words with their English meanings.

Mark 15:43-45
"Joseph went to take Jesus and asked for his body. After getting a surprising shock that he had died SO FAST, Pilate gave him permission to take his corpse."

Mark 15:43-45???

I wrote that and now you have made it Mark 15:43. You made my day. How nice it would have been if you had not butted in the post that I ahd addressed to Buford, the clueless.

However, I must thank you for saying this: "In Greek soma means living body, while ptoma means corpse"

Check out if Buford agrees with you!!!

Understand, these exchanges are saying OUR rabbis cannot be TRUSTED because they "CORRECT" or PERVERT truth and HISTORY.

Didnt you ever write reports in school?
Frijoles---I knew you didnt write it.

HughBe--- Thank you.

Frijoles---But others might not be so familair with your STYLE

HughBe-- really? what style is that? tell me what they would take the quotation marks to mean.

Also, what is your understanding of quotation marks?

Because it is meant to be offensive.
Hughbe believes in the Christian fundamentalist doctrine of replacement theology. I.E. Jews are unworthy of their "spiritual inheritence", leaving Christians like him free to step in.
Labeling us jews as Judaites or whatever is part of that.
You are nasty LYING serpent.

1. Jews are also Christians

2. Non-Jews are grafted into a spiritual Jewish tree

3. Like your rabbis you tend to FABRICATE and LIE too easily.

Recall, HughBe--- Are YOU telling me that Rabbi Raphael, a TOP historian of Jewish history, FABRICATED the information that he wrote?
.

Frijoles---Um...YES

HughBe--- The YES is clear. Rabbis are DISHONEST and FRAUDS and as you have said recently they are CORRUPT.

HughBe--- Please explain why the rabbi who is a historian would FABRICATE such things about the Jewish people. Is he anti-Semitic?

__________
"Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave AUCTIONS were POSTPONED if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the eighteenth century, Jewish merchants played a MAJOR role in the slave trade. In FACT, in ALL the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently DOMINATED.

"This was no less true on the North American mainland, where during the eighteenth century Jews participated in the 'triangular trade' that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which in turn was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750's, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760's, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760's and early 1770's dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent."

"Slave trading was a MAJOR feature of Jewish economic life in Surinam which as a major stopping-off point in the triangular trade. Both North American and Caribbean Jews played a key role in this commerce: records of a slave sale in 1707 reveal that the ten LARGEST Jewish purchasers (10,400 guilders) spent more than 25 PERCENT of the total funds (38,605 guilders) exchanged."

Source---"Rabbi Raphael is both a rabbi and a TOP historian of Jewish history. For the last generation he has been the EDITOR of the quarterly journal, American Jewish History.

He is the Nathan and Sophia Gumenick Professor of Judaic Studies, Professor of Religion, and Chair, Department of Religion, The College of William and Mary, and a Visiting Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford University.

in Aramaic: "Haggai and Zechariah prophesied unto yehudain in Yehud and Jerusalem in the name of Elah yisrael" (Ezra 5:1)
why should some take offense if yehudim/yehudain is translated as judahites in english?
rabbee: then you need to learn the difference, between a translation, a transliteration, and a perversion. Yehoodeem, is a proper transliteration, and translated it means - His Many Redeemed. beware of false transliterations, with a - j, w, u, c, or i. which are perversions, and not translations.
