"First of all, if memory serves me right, Allahu Akhbar means God is great. "
NO it means GOD (their god) is GREATEST, GREATER (than any other god)
If you don't know islamic scriptures, restrain from giving wrong explanations/translations.
"Such enclaves are a socio-demographic powder keg and it should be outlawed to have stores with merchandise not labeled in English, street signs in Vietnamese or city blocks which feel like a countryside in China."
this is a proof that you treat non-muslim immigrants worse than muslim immigrants. Why we are criminalizing chinatown when chinese people don't want to overthrown the government? they don't want to even import their communism.
There is no need to victimize chinatown or little italy when the problem is with islam
"I never denied their violent past nor the letter of that book.( Nor ours for that matter or some enigmatic , cryptic and easily as aggressive or at least exclusive interpretable passuses in the Bible)."
back to your christianophobic words of the beginning. For it's own constitution the bible has never been the exact word of god, so stop comparing it with the koran, that's the exact and immutable word of god.
You are christianophobic, I already explained to you this. The bible is a book written by MEN by inspiration of god, which is different than being the exact word of god.
second time around that this very easy matter is explained to you. I bet if it was Noah telling the very same stuff you'd be... ok. If there is someone writing the same stuff as myself is noah. Yet you are ... agreeing, could it be that you are misogynist at best? ...
