Reader comment on item: Islamist Advice to Jews

Mohammed believed that he got his information from the angel Gabriel. This could easily be a slight error in sound perception. The more likely candidates are:

Gadriel - Chief ruling angel of the 5th Heaven in charge of wars among nations. [see Gadreel.] When a prayer ascebds to Heaven, gadriel crowns it, then accompanies it to the 6th Heaven.Galearii are the lowest ranking angels.

Gadreel (Gadriel--Aramaic, "God is my helper") - It was Gadreel who, reputedly, led Eve astray -- which, if true, would make Gadreel rather than Satan the talking serpent and seducer in the Garden of Eden. Like Azazel, Gadreel made man familiar with the weapons of war.

These may be the same. I am not sure. This "angel" was among the legions of lucifer, and was accustomed to trickery, calling others "God" besides the one true Lord.
