Who Is Allah?

There are 220775 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?”

Of course, but you can't tell a stupid Muslim that. They are the stupidest people that humanity has to offer.

Why don't you tell the rest of the class the name of the surrogate mother from the Torah. What's her name in the Torah? Does she have the same name as Eve? Is she Eve or whatever name you think Eve is called?

Indeed, uhuh
That is why I have been saying for years here that Jesus came with nothing new, brought nothing new and left nothing new.
He was only sent to reform and remove traditions, which were never part of the Law. The Rabbis and the Pharisees and Sadducees were controlling people's lives with all those imposed traditions. We too have a similar problem with Mullahs, who control ignorant masses with 'their traditional laws'.
One can see Jesus talking about how not to hurt people with their tongue, telling people that Sabbath was not the lord over men but men were the lord of Sabbath, etc. The man was clearly a teacher and a reformer and challenged the authorities.
And it was sad that he failed and could not complete his mission and one of his last three reported words were "It is finished" meaning "It is all gone down the drain".
Thanks fro the good points. Good night
Your interpretation of why Jesus was sent by God the Father is wrong.
You talk about the Law but what law are you talking about?
Explain God's law?

Let me educate you on this.
If you remember I have said many times before that Greek and English languages are extremely poor and unfit for a Scripture.
What would the pagan Greeks and the pagan English Neanderthalls back then know about a man appointed and sent by God?
The equivalent words for a Navi (Hebrew) and Nabi (Arabic) used are Prophet and Messenger. The English word Prophet is absurd. Everyone uses it for convenience.
uhuh gave an excellent equivalent word, "God's spokesman"
To think and say that the prophets were sent by God to prophesy, is rubbish and absurd.
That is my main point.
My main point is that you are an unthinking, presumptuous fool, Put another way, you are a proven IDIOT.

BMZ, No Doubt, MUQ and other Muslims will never relent since they've deadened sensibilities and will find some excuse or the other to defend the indefensible Quran.

You're simply wasting time, energy and consciousness in debating them.

Look at the fanatics of other faiths like Shamma, Frijoles, Eric, Rabbee, Hugh and Truth Seeker or take a look at the atheists - they, too, are like the Muslim fanatics.

Most of humanity is possessed in some way or the other and it is this possession in varying degrees brought on by the adverse beings that turns possessed people into obdurate, desensitized, bigoted, nonthinking and cruel asses.

The actual Truth is very different and is not what the scriptures and most people imagine it to be.

Above all remember Truth has to be directly experienced to the extent one is capable of doing so and manifested in life.

A Self-claimed Prophet
Mohammed was challenged to perform miracles to prove he was from Allah and that his belief was the truth. Mohammed, in a desperate attempt to convince people that he had performed a miracle, invented an outrageous story, saying he had been caught away to Jerusalem during the night while they were sleeping. Because they were not eye witnesses to the event, they doubted him even more. Finally, Mohammed admitted that he was unable to perform miracles because he was "just a man."
They say,'We will not believe in you unless you cause a spring to gush forth from the ground, or should have a river goes through a garden of palms and grapes, or make the sky fall as you claimed, or show us Allah and the angels; or should have a house of gold, or should ascend to heaven and return in front of us with a book for us to read.' Say, "To God be the glory. Am I other than a mortal messenger?" (K 17:90-93)
Failure in Mecca
When his heretical teachings were not accepted in Mecca, Mohammed decided to move to Medina, the home of his mother's tribe. He realized the people in Mecca, including his father's tribe, would not accept his beliefs unless they were forced by physical violence to do so.
Medina is a city in Arabia where Mohammed moved after his mother's tribe offered him armed support. In Medina (623-633 AD), he and his mother's tribe waged wars to force people to follow them or be killed. In the Koran, one can clearly see the difference in Mohammed's tolerant teachings in Mecca and his harsh teachings in Medina. Today Muslims, instructed by the Koran, continue waging wars wherever they have political power, to force people into Islam.

The Badr Raid
Motivated by the wealth and women taken in the first raid, Mohammed led the second raid himself. At Badr, Mohammed and his mother's tribe attacked another caravan where they again killed the men, took the women as concubines and looted the goods. Thereafter, caravans were subjected to horrible attacks by Mohammed and his mother's tribe. Subsequently, to avoid being attacked, his followers increased. In essence, Mohammed and his mother's tribe began raiding caravans as a way of life. Mohammed received one fifth of the spoils from each raid.(K 8:41)
Mohammed himself engaged in 78 battles, of which just one (the Battle of the Ditch) was defensive. Within a century after Mohammed's death in 632, Muslim armies had reached as far as India in the east and Spain in the west. Today Jihad is still using force to convert people to Islam on the threat of death.
Glossary
* ISLAM is a combination of Paganism (worship of the moon god Allah) and Ebionism, spread by Mohammed Bin Abd Allah in Arabia in the 7th century. The word "Islam" was not derived from the Arabic word "salam", which means "peace" as Muslims claim. It was derived from "istislam" which means "surrender or die", the word Mohammed shouted while pursuing his opposition. His militant commands, terrorist attacks, pagan and Ebionism beliefs are contained in the book of the Muslims (Koran).
* MECCA is a town in Arabia where Mohammed shared his beliefs in Ebionism from 610-623 AD. Because he had no power, he took no action against those who chose not to follow him in Mecca.
* MEDINA is a city in Arabia where Mohammed moved after his motherís tribe offered him armed support. In Medina (623-633 AD), he and his motherís tribe waged wars to force people to follow him or be killed. In the Koran, one can clearly see the difference in Mohammedís tolerant teachings in Mecca and his harsh teachings in Medina. Muslims, instructed by the Koran, continue Jihad attacks wherever they have political power, to force people into Islam.
* KORAN is the book of Islam that Mohammed claimed was revealed to him by Allah, the pagan moon god of the Arabs.

What was the result of "countless miracles" that Jesus showed?

How many did he bring to his side?

Our prophet transformed the whole of Arabia, without showing a "single miracle" (as you say)

What else is miracle?(You dumb ass!!- Pardon my language)

Have you been to moon and personally checked the whole surface and fault lines there?

And why there should be any "visible line" for moon splitting and rejoining?

It was the work of Creator and He does what He wills, now ask you people how to do it.

If you do not know about any subject, why you poke into it?

I don't believe that at all. The victor always writes history.
It is a strange case, you have no info of your own and you do not believe what is recorded as most authentic facts.

So history should be left "just as you wish and want it to be written"....then every one will have his own make - believe history.

Is that what you are aiming at?
