Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

Submitted by MM (Canada), Feb 13, 2008 at 12:14

I can't believe this...I would never say anything about say german without knowing german.
Having studied arabic and lived in an arab state for ages I can tell you this:
Allah is not the ""muslim" name for god!!!!!!!!!!!
it's the arabic name for God! Arab Jews and christians who know arabic and speak it and read and write it(unlike many of the people commenting here) use it to refer to GOD...why? BECAUSE IT'S THE ARABIC LITERAL TRANSLATION FOR GOD!!!!!!!! FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!!!!!
I am really sick and tired of hearing all these judgements about people I have lived with and about a religion no one knows anything about...but who am I?!!!

Millions of arabs are very well educated, speak several languages and are not terrorists and also include lots of christians...the richest man in Egypt is christian!!!! A copt who is very well respected and popular over there...two very well educated copts are also Ministers in the government!!!! they know arabic...and they use the arabic "term" for GOD

Please...it is very wise to know and read about something before having your say.
Lastly...If talk was made of silver..silence is of gold!!!

Submitting....
