Really? let me see an idol is something the you venerate and oh kiss and therefore the ka3bba is an idol and so is a copy of the Qur'an ink paper and all and so is Muhammad and so is your Allah and so is "American idol" too

>An idol is something you worship as a God.

Not really and for this see

Let me help you: there is no difference except in the mind of an ignorant arab that was blindly following those nasty Semitic with their sky god but you know what? it seems that Allah and his rasul flunk psycholinguistics

>Remember???

remember what? that you are no more than a victim of Arabian imperialism?
