Who Is Allah?

There are 228237 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?”

Demons don't exist. Even if that story came from Arabs, those ignorants are not able to get their stories straight. for over a week, let alone 1600 for years.
I prefer agnostics who simply don't know what is or what isn't and will not say one way or the other because of their fundamental assumption that we and our tests are not the measure of truth, which is another way of saying that the existence of demons -however they are defined for testing purposes- has not been proven or disproven conclusively.

Yes he is. But when in my post I confirmed that Islam is all about Mouhammed?
I made that assertion, because you wrote that the Jews will go to hell for rejecting Jesus and Mohammad. Jesus might disagree with you, but "Mouhammed" wouldn't, because HIS religion was all about getting the Jews and Christians and all other "infidels" to submit to HIS mandates.

<quoted text>OOPS!
Sorry about that!
The thing about Mohammad is that he WASN'T THERE, so his Qur'an is the "word" of Jibreel/Allah, and the whole world is supposed to believe it, or else.
No worries.

<quoted text>Idiot,
Muhammad ordered Muslims to kill Jews?
http://www.wnd.com/2003/07/19775/
The killing of Jews is a mandatory religious obligation established by Islam’s founder Muhammad, according to a Muslim academic who spoke on Palestinian Authority television.
“Muhammad said in his Hadith:“The Hour [Day of Resurrection] will not arrive until you fight the Jews,[until a Jew will hide behind a rock or tree] and the rock and the tree will say:‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’” said Hassan Khader, founder of the Al Quds Encyclopedia.
Khader spoke during a lecture, broadcast Sunday, on what he describes as the war of the Jews against Palestinian “trees.”
The program was monitored by Palestinian Media Watch, or PMW, an Israel-based group.
PMW director Itamar Marcus says Khader’s statement was one of many instances in recent years of Palestinian religious leaders teaching publicly that this Hadith – part of Islamic traditions attributed to Muhammad – is a current obligation of Islam.

You start a debate, you don't answer to what it was asked to prove, because you know you lied, then you divert all on other things, making this debate infinite. You said Muslims kill Jews because they are Jews. Then I asked you to prove the frequeny of killing of Muslims towards Jews, in your city, Canada, Portugal, Spain, France, Swiss, Italy, Germany, Uk? If your lie is true you should be able to give plenty sources supporting your lie. Until now you came out with naught. The Palestina issue, is another thing ywe will talk after you provide what I asked you.

I take the agnostic position only in regard of the existence of something that may have originated and not created the universe and what else there is, if there is, out the universe. Demons are as true as the angels, or pink elephants.

And true.

The reason why I believe that Mohammad was a thieving, murdering, rape-enabling liar is because of what I have read in the early records that were made by devout MUSLIM biographers and compilers like Bukhari, Tabari, Ibn Ishaq, and Muslim.

It actually amazes me that Muslims would NOT have destroyed these records because the picture that they paint of the life, sayings and doings of the "prophet" of Islam is horrific.

Let me put it this way. If ANYONE tried to pull off TODAY what Mohammad got away with in 7th century (A.D.) Arabia, he'd be arrested and thrown in jail and be subjected to a psychatric evaluation to see whether or not he was even fit to stand trial for various and sundry crimes against humanity.

You claim that Jews believe that Bahais enter heaven exactly the same way and in the same chosen state as Jews.
Please tell us what happens to Muslims and Christians?
Where is the authority from your scriptures?
Thanks.
I see no reason why a Muslim or a Christian could not enter heaven the same way as Jews. In fact, since they only have 7 requirements as opposed to hundreds, they probably have a better chance.

Eric---Where in your story do you state that it was "unjustified,unmerited or UNLAWFUL"? Sounds like a late prevarication to save your tush.
HughBe--- Tell me where in my story did I say that the "arrest was NOT immoral", as you have stated, or that it was JUSTIFIED, MERITED or LAWFUL?
Also, there is no "LATE prevarication" as you have so erroneously stated. Your words show that you have not fully understood the story.
HughBe--- Let me tell you a story. Once there was a young man that was being arrested by the police. His father cried out to him and said, be respectful to the police and OBEY them. He then said to the police treat my son fairly and kindly.
Tell me, was the father supporting the arrest of his son?
See, you are assuming facts not in evidence. No where in your story do you state that the arrest was anything but proper.
