Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Still waiting for your answer to my original question

My dear Tim and in this little gem to follow you will be!

While I'm waiting for the answers to my questions so we can start our little chat, I thought you would be most interested in learning about the following story but this time it is from Muhammad's biography (Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishaq in Ibn Hisham's recension and see pages 571-572) and now speaking of the one God in the Qur'an your Allah (oh I forgot that you are Jewish) accuses you as a Jew of being mushrik or polytheist in Qur'an 9:30 where we are told that the Jews regard 3Uzair (Ezra) as the son of God (sic) and therefore the Jews must be polytheists!

I'm also sure that you must be aware of the so called Rabbinical test of prophethood and as expected the Jews of Mecca or so we are told were not impressed with Muhammad's bizarre claim about 3Uzair or even about the fact that Muhammad was a Nabi period! So the very smart Jews of Mecca posed the very simple and very profound Aristotelain problem to Muhammad: "If God is responsible for this creation who then created God?"

So what do you think the answer of Abul Qasim oh I mean Muhammad was? But again do not expect much as neither Abul Qasim nor his Allah had any clue in matters of logic!

So much for the one God!

Stay tuned for part deux
