It's a rather harsh and angry tone you have taken with a twelve year old girl. She doesn't make her claims based on an argumentative spirit - it seems to me that she makes her claims because she is a Christian. Also, doesn't it seem logical that if I believe that your god Allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, and Jesus, that I would say that Allah is not a god?

I would expect someone who doesn't believe that the God of Abraham and Jesus is a god to not be afraid to make the statement that Abraham's God is no god at all. As it stands, I do believe in the God of Abraham, etc., etc., and Jesus, and I am not afraid to say what I believe. To say that corrective suggestion to a person's behavior (i.e. faith practice) is wrong is to say that we are in no way accountable for each other, and that we should not (and cannot) help a fellow stray sheep find the shepherd.

A Christian does not (at least a genuine follower of Christ should not) criticize another's faith practice in order to wish condemnation; he/she does so to help the other find salvation in Christ Jesus. It's called Agape love, it's the type of love that is unconditional, that God has for all of His creation. That's why we care.
