A simple question for Mr. Ansari,

If Allah is so Great, why does Allah permit such violence in his name? Can't he control his people?

Adonay, the God of Christianity, does not permit his followers to bomb embassies, fly planes into buildings in His name.

Back in the 13th century, the Roman Catholic Church established a tribunal for "suppressing" heresy and heretics. It was violent. It was also against Christians who refused to commit to the Catholic Church.

In modern day, when David Koresh tried to establish a twisted version of a Christian community, Mr. Koresh was wiped out. Jim Jones tried the same thing, down in South America, and he was wiped out.

Which again leads me to ask Mr. Ansari, is Allah so great? -JS
