So let me be blunt:

1. You post this little gem that Christian Arabs call their God Allah and then you copy and paste a quote from an Arabic translation of the Bible. And you know what? This nonsense has been posted in the past by other Pakistanis and wannabe Arabs like you. So you are not even original.

2. Then when you are told: so what is your point? You have no answer.

3. And when you are told: may be Christian Arabs call their God Allah because the word God is Syro-Aramaic (read this as Syriac and more later about your total confusion about Syriac and Aramaic) is Alaha/Allaha and it is Arabized as: Allah. Even the word Alaha/Allaha was familiar to the Copts in the late antique period and they indeed use the word Allah in their Arabic Bible. Now you have your references. But I can assure you our dear zzazz that your knowledge of English and Urdu will not be enough to really get you to understand the sources because you do not seem to have the skills to read such sources

4. Then you seem to have no clue that Syriac and Aramaic are one and the same ( not unlike Egyptian and Coptic).

5. Then when you are told that may be Christians in the Middle East call their God Allah because this will be politically correct. I never got an answer.

6. Then when you are told that according to your bogus logic if Allah of Islam is the same Allah as that of the Jews and Christians in the Middle east then congratualtions our dear zzazz: your Allah is also the ethnic God of the Jews and your Allah is also Jesus. Oh and Muslims should be offended if Christian Arabs call their God, Jesus, Allah but they are not and why is that our dear zzazz?

You then realized that you must admit that this does not mean that their Gods are one and the same. Which brings me back to the same point: then why do you post this ...l?

7. Then you post poorly transliterated Arabic and then you tell us that the plural of the word Ilah is Ilahat. Remember that? And when told that no it is Aliha, you went back to the dictionary which you cannot even read properly you came back with more nonsense. But you discovered that your little thesis about the word Allahuma which I susepct that you borrowed from some tendentious Pakistani sources, as you are not original, was bogus.

8. Now you tell me that you are a linguist. What on earth is a linguist our dear zzazz?

9. But your ultimate and pathetic defense is: that you are American! Give me a break

Now let me ask you the question for the Nth time again: So Christian Arabs call their God Jesus that is Allah then what is your point?

Submitting....
