Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment
in response to reader comment: Eloi is in the Bible

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Feb 18, 2009 at 18:00

For reasons that i do not get Paki/tablighees have great fascination with the sentence below

>I really think you should get a new Bible.

But the Bible is a corrupted (sic) book so what is the use?

>Eloi is in the Bible. (might be a corrupted romanization of what Jesus was saying in Aramaic)

This remark is more evidence that you have no clue about what you are talking about as you below and that the Syriax word is Eli Eli and the Arabic word is ilahi ilahi or my god ...

Hint: you need to stick to urdu

Oh the corrupted? It is an Arabian book of ignorance that shall remain unnamed

>"And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which means, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?" ...

No it is Eli Eli lama sabachtani or

Eli Eli means my God my God'

lama means why

sabachtani means (you) went ahead of me (left me bedind)

Oh and you can tell your glorious madrassa that such a sentence in Arabic would be

Ilahi ilahi lema sabaqtani

Oh the similarites? Because both Syriac and Arabic are semitic languages and have much in common but nothing in common with Urdu

And at times I wonder if your Allah was indeed a Syriac speaker as the Qur'an is full of Syriac words but again Jesus spoke Syriac and the Qur'an really says that Jesus must be God therefore congratulations our dear covert but Jesus is really your Allah

>And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last. And the curtain of the Temple [see Temples] was torn in two, from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood facing Him, saw that He thus breathed His last, he said, "Truly this man was the Son of God!" (Mark 15:33-34,37-39 RSV)

The Bible is corrupted (sic) right? then why do you quote a corrupted book ...?
