in response to reader comment: grasping at straws...

Islam is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion, originating with the teachings of Muhammad, a 7th century Arab religious and political figure. The word Islam means "submission", or the total surrender of oneself to God (Arabic: الله, Allāh) not Deity (polytheistic, according to Mac OSx Dictionary). An english translation would indicate this however in deeper thought in means PEACE.

Like you refer to an Egyptian Imam blah,blah. What about the Dutch priest that suggested evryone should call GOD "Allah". Forget what these guys say. Show me where in the Quraan it says beating a women is allowed or hates Jews. Yes, he has no son is in the scripture.

Peace be upon you my friend.
