Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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?”

Religious War
"Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of religion and faith. Long Live Fatah!”
[PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]

This statement was made by the moderator at a Fatah event, and it highlights a dangerous trend by the PA and Fatah to define the conflict with Israel as an uncompromising religious war, mandated by Islam.

Indeed, Palestinian society has undergone a major shift towards fundamental Islam. In 2010, more than 98% of Palestinians surveyed said that religion plays an important role in their lives, while less than 1% considered religion not important.”[Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies (RCHRS)]. 80% of Palestinians approved of hand amputations for theft, in a 2003 poll, while 50% thought this form of punishment should be implemented immediately, and 30% conditioned it on improved judicial conditions.[Bir Zeit Univ. Development Studies Program, Poll No.14, 2003]

An integral part of this Palestinian Islamization is the teaching that Islam is at war with Jews and Israel. Jews are said to be the enemy of Allah, and PA (Fatah) and Hamas religious and academic leaders alike have reiterated on numerous occasions, including as recently as January 2012 by the PA Mufti, the Islamic teaching that the Hour of Resurrection is dependent on the extermination of Jews:

PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein:“Palestine in its entirety is a revolution… continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith… says:
"The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call:'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'”
[PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]

Thus, the murder of Jews becomes a prerequisite for and fulfillment of the Islamic ideal. In a 2011 poll,(by Israel Project) 73% of Palestinians said they “believe” the Islamic Hadith that preaches it is Islamic destiny to kill Jews wherever they are.

Similarly, the conflict with Israel is presented as a Ribat, an uncompromising Islamic obligation to defend or liberate Islamic holy land. Israel is said to exist on Islamic holy land that must be liberated for Allah.

One result of the PA Islamic teachings is the strong support for suicide terror in defense of Islam. The Washington-based PEW organization found that 68% of Palestinians “often”(31%) or “sometimes”(37%) justify suicide terror against civilians “to defend Islam.” This 68% of Palestinians justifying suicide terror to defend their religion is twice as much support as in any other Muslim country polled, with the nearest being Lebanon, where only 35% in total supported suicide terror in defense of Islam.[http://pewglobal.org]

Martin Luther
“About the Jews and Their Lies.”
“Let their houses also be shattered and destroyed ... Let their prayer books and Talmuds be taken from them, and their whole Bible too; let their rabbis be forbidden,***on pain of death***, to teach henceforth any more. Let the streets and highways be closed against them. Let them be forbidden to practice usury, and let all their money, and all their treasures of silver and gold be taken from them and put away in safety. And if all this be not enough, let them be driven like mad dogs out of the land.”
Very good, Eric. Did YOU know that he DIED almost 500 years ago?

Let us look at Judaism TODAY. When did I say?

Did I say 100 years ago? NO

Did I say 50 years ago? NO

Get it?

."A recently published book written by a Skvere HASIDIC rabbi and endorsed by the Skvere Rebbe himself TELLS Skvere hasidim and other Jews to HATE ALL gentiles.

(What did the HASIDIC rabbi teach? Answer to HATE ALL gentiles. Was he alone? No, "endorsed by the Skvere Rebbe himself")

"Gentiles are wholly EVIL, the book says. They spiritually POLLUTE the world, and even LOOKING at their faces is harmful."

"The book is called Yalkut Shaiylos u’Teshuvos. As the title indicates, it is a collection of questions and answers on halakhic topics. The QUESTIONS were asked by young Skvere yeshiva students IN New Square, NEW YORK. The answers are rabbinic."

"Question: Is it appropriate to not love, or to hate, a gentile?

Answer: A Jew is intrinsically good. A Jew is a part of God above. Even if at times he strays it is not because he has become evil. It is only that there is evil within him that he has to cleanse.

However, to separate with a MILLION degrees of separation, a gentile is an IMPURE THING. The ENTIRE ESSENCE of the gentile is EVIL and impure."

The word godhead means a presiding deity which is an archetypal being of a particular plane. For instance, the disembodied consciousness called Krishna is the godhead (presiding power or archetypal being) of the highest overmind plane, El is the godhead of one of the vital planes, Shiva is the godhead of one of the overmental sub-planes and so on. The absolute which is the unified field of consciousness-energy is beyond all the different godheads of tghe various planes of existence and is their source.

In fact, Palestine in its entirety is a revolution, since [Caliph] Umar came [to conquer Jerusalem, 637 CE], and continuing today, and until the End of Days.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-abortion_vi...
The Army of God, an underground terrorist organization active in the United States, has been responsible for a substantial amount of anti-abortion violence. In addition to numerous property crimes, the group has committed acts of kidnapping, attempted murder, and murder. In August 1982, three men identifying as the Army of God kidnapped Hector Zevallos (a doctor and clinic owner) and his wife, Rosalee Jean, holding them for eight days.[50] In 1993, Shelly Shannon, a very active member of the Army of God, was found guilty of the attempted murder of Dr. George Tiller.[51] That same year, law enforcement officials found the Army of God Manual, a tactical guide to arson, chemical attacks, invasions, and bombings buried in Shelly Shannon's backyard.[50] Paul Jennings Hill was found guilty of the murder of both Dr. John Britton and clinic escort James Barrett. The Army of God supported Hill, saying that "whatever force is legitimate to defend the life of a born child is legitimate to defend the life of an unborn child... if in fact Paul Hill did kill or wound abortionist John Britton, and accomplices James Barrett and Mrs. Barrett, his actions are morally justified if they were necessary for the purpose of defending innocent human life".[13] The AOG claimed responsibility for Eric Robert Rudolph's 1997 shrapnel bombing of abortion clinics in Atlanta and Birmingham.[52]
I would say that there is no justification in anything that Jesus taught for what these people did, which makes them misguided sinners.

Qur'an 4:157-158 And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah ." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for
certain. Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.

One major problem here is that "Allah" is presented as a deceiver of everyone involved in the "supposed" crucifixion of Jesus, assuming, of course, that "Allah" pulled off the switcheroo. The Romans, the Jews, the disciples, even Mary, the mother of Jesus -ALL were deceived by "Allah." Why?

The second major problem here is that "rescued" Jesus NEVER tells his disciples or even his own mother that he is still alive, and that some poor schmuck got killed in his place, which means that Mary helped to bury a stranger that she thought was her son, c/o "Allah's" deception, while Jesus went along with it. Again, why?

The third major problem, and the greatest, IMO, is that Muhammad's "revelation" via "Jibreel," makes Jesus a liar. In the Gospel record Jesus prophesied his own death and resurrection, but Muhammad/Jibreel denied that these fundamental
truths of Christianity even occurred. Of course, Muslims argue that Christians corrupted their texts, that is, they INVENTED their religion, but it is far more likely that a six-centuries-removed pagan Arab who was raised by jinn worshippers and was himself a conjurer and spell-caster got it completely wrong. See: http://religionresearchinstitute.org/Mohammad...

The fourth major problem is that Muhammad could easily have discovered what orthodox Christianity actually believed and taught -the Canon had been
established centuries earlier- but he was so OWNED by "Jibreel" that it would not have made any difference, which is why I regard Muhammadanism as hell's answer to Christianity.

I've presented the above reflections to Muslims, and the reply has invariably been that their "prophet" -the last and best ever!!!- could not possibly have gotten it wrong!!!!!
