Who Is Allah?

There are 252784 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?”

On September 8, 1997 Pope John Paul II announced corrections concerning the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition English Translation. Corrections were made to bring into line the differences between the English Version and the Official Latin Catechism.
It was not due to Scripture changes of which there was no change.
The corrections were made in the translations from the Official Latin Catechism into English version.
You Muslim mind...
1st edition came out in 1994
but the "official" Latin text came out LATER, in 1997

ESAU'S CROCODILE TEARS:

In "Esau's Tears: Modern Anti Semitism and the Rise of the Jews" (1997) Albert Lindemann writes:

Jews have been as capable as any other group of provoking hostility. They actually do not want to understand their past, or at least those aspects of their past that have to do with the hatred directed at them, since understanding may threaten other aspects of their complex and often contradictory identities.

KHAZARS AS JEWS:

The overwhelming majority of the people who claim Jewish identity today descend from Khazari ancestors and therefore are technically not even Semites.

In fact, according to Shlomo Sand's 2009 book, "The Invention of The Jewish People," even David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Modern Israel openly and in writing acknowledged that most of the original Jews of Palestine voluntarily convert to Islam in the 7th and 8th century never having left their homeland.

According to Ben Gurion, "The fellahin [the people of Palestine] are not descendants of the Arab Conquerors, who captured Eretz Israel [The Land of Israel] and Syria in the seventh century CE.[AD]. The Arab victors did not destroy the agricultural population they found in the country. They expelled only the alien Byzantine rulers, and did not touch the local population." pp. 185-187

So, technically, it was not until the 1940s and after the Six Day War in 1967 that that the fellahin, the ancestral 'local population' were not only "touched" but became the victims of wholesale massacres (aka ethnic cleansing) and thereby forcibly removed from their homelands at the hands alien Zionist Khazari Pseudo-Judeo invaders.

LOL.

BITTER TRUTH:

"I had an 'Eureka' moment when I read an interview with Shlomo Sand, the author of 'The Invention of the Jewish People.' He shows that the Jews today are not the descendants of Biblical Hebrews but are people of different races who converted to Judaism down through the centuries."

But you do not get it Muslim.
There was no change in the faith and morals teaching of the contents in the Catechism.

The teaching that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is an infallible truth revealed by God.

The teaching that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is a big lie and it is a 4th Century fraud.

Do you see any disciple calling Jesus, Son of God? You don't.

Catechism itself is another fraud and forgery spanning over another six centuries. It is nothing scriptural and is only full of opinions of very inferior minds. It is something like our Fatwas.

There are a million hypotheticals.
Over all, my personal view, which is IRRELEVANT because I am not in that position, is that life begins at a certain time, which is later than fertilization. When that time is, I dont know, but I do know it is a matter of philosophic opinion or religious belief, therefore I dont expect every one to agree on it.
As a matter of biology, life is a continuum. The sperm is alive, the egg is alive, and a fertilized egg is most definitely alive, but as a matter of law it is not yet a PERSON, and that's what all of the hullabaloo is about.

When EXACTLY does PERSONHOOD accrue to the living entity during the course of a pregnancy? Is it at the onset of a brain waves, for example, or when the first breath is drawn, post-birth?

This is where philosophers and theologians and lawyers disagree, but what bothers me the most about how the U.S. Supreme Court handled this question when it inflicted Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton on this country some 33 years ago, is that it not only refused to grant the "potential life" -its term- the benefit of the doubt, it declared open season on the unborn. That is, they could be killed at any time during pregnancy and for basically any reason at all, in light of Doe v. Bolton's wide-as-the-universe "health" exception:

"The medical judgment may be exercised in the light of all factors—physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman's age—relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health. This allows the attending physician the room he needs to make his best medical judgment. And it is room that operates for the benefit, not the disadvantage, of the pregnant woman."

IOW, it is to the distinct disadvantage of the "unwanted" baby that she carries, unless, of course, the baby manages to be "wrongly" and "accidentally" born alive and is viable, in which case, does one of your "million hypotheticals" include providing medical assistance to the baby FOR ITS OWN SAKE?

Meanwhile, among other criminal charges that he faces, Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia for murdering 7 "unwanted" late-term babies that survived being aborted. He killed them by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, thereby ensuring "fetal demise." Could these babies have survived with minimal medical care? We'll never know.

To some "pro-choicers," Gosnell's abortion "practice" is, or rather was, a "necessary evil," which helps to explain why much of the media has ignored the court proceedings. These "pro-choicers" fear an erosion of abortion "rights," and calling attention to a hired killer who ran a filthy clinic and kept jars full of aborted baby feet doesn't exactly help their favorite "cause." They prefer covering stories about "right-wing" "evangelical" "anti-choicers" who shoot *sainted* late-term abortion specialists like George Tiller.

Sure and that was on page 8198 but let us recap first:
In your post #173713, you asked:
"Where in the Koran does it state that Islam abrogates all other religions? I am asking you because I was just reading an article by Sachedina, where he wrote that the Koran encourages pluralism, and nowhere does it state that it abrogates Judiaism and Xtianity."
And you asked the same in your post #173737
"Where in the Koran does it state that Islam abrogates all other religions? I am asking you because I was just reading an article by Sachedina, where he wrote that the Koran encourages pluralism, and nowhere does it state that it abrogates Judiaism and Xtianity."
And I had replied:
"Qur'aan does not say that. However, it does not encourage pluralism. It encourages belief in only one God.
It definitely does not encourage Christianity, which is a post-Jesus "Made in Rome" religion."
And then in your post #173743, you asked a very foolish question after reading my reply:
"Does the Koran say that Xtianity is post-Jesus made in Rome?"
I had replied in post #173747
"What a foolish question, Mahmood!
And if I write that the biblical Jesus was possessed by demons, would you ask me a similar question?"
Check out post #173809 when you wrote: "I couldn't care less about your opinion of Jesus, all I am asking is where in the Koran does it say "made in Rome" as you claimed or is this one of your own assertions.
In post #173822, I wrote: "Silly question again, Mahmood!"
So, you were being silly in asking me those stupid questions like "I couldn't care less about your opinion of Jesus, all I am asking is where in the Koran does it say "made in Rome" as you claimed or is this one of your own assertions."
Even a 5th Grader can easily understand what I wrote and what was in Qur'aan.
And now you come up with your post #173855, which has nothing to do with your original question.
The point is that you should be able to understand what is in Qur'aan and should be able to differentiate between my personal comments and the verses of Qur'aan.
If I say that the Christian Trinity was formed by pagans, you cannot ask me a foolish question, such as, "Does the Qur'aan say that the Christian Trinity was formed by pagans?"
So, it is you, who keeps the foot in mouth when discussing with me.
I will address the latest post of yours separately.
Okay, so where in the Koran does it say Islam abrogates all other religions? You never answered.

You then made a claim about Made in Rome Xtianity. I then asked you where in the Koran does it say this, you never answered.

I then asked why would allah ask you to believe in previous scriptures when Mohammad's scripture abrogates them all, you again did not answer.

My questions are simple and stright forward, and you are choosing to ignore them because it will eventually lead to contradictions in the Koran.

SEX & EXCRETION:
The Communist writer Berthold Brecht seized upon another design problem to explain why he was an atheist:
He said, "No Divine Intelligence would place the excretory and sexual functions in such close proximity."
Or, as a wag put it, "God put the snack shop too close to the outhouse."
..........
HUGH dear,
Where are you, dear?
Shacking up with your boyfriend?

1. It would have been useful if BB or Berthold B had suggested better placements. Perhaps he would have made no separation between his mouth and his excretory orifice. It appears that he uses his mouth for both functions.

2. Recall, we are to link up next week.

I recall that not that long ago BMZ stated at least twice in this thread that the Qur'an abrogates all previous scriptures, but I wouldn't expect him to admit it. He never does admit to lying, even when it is completely obvious that he makes it up as he goes, like his Pilate orchestrated stage play rubbish.
