YHVH = JESUS = ALLAH ... What's wrong with that?

Narrated Anas ibn Malik: "I was sitting with the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and a man was offering prayer. He then made supplication: O Allah, I ask Thee by virtue of the fact that praise is due to Thee, there is no deity but Thou, Who showest favour and beneficence, the Originator of the Heavens and the earth, O Lord of Majesty and Splendour, O Living One, O Eternal One. The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) then said: He has supplicated Allah using His Greatest Name, when supplicated by this name, He answers, and when asked by this name He gives."

OK - maybe my English isn't so good - but did I just read that Mohammad said that Malik supplicated Allah using his 'greatest name'? Doesn't that 'seem' to indicate that one of them knows Allah's 'greatest name' - and that it was just spoken in the supplication? From my own observation, I see a lot of 'Titles' being thrown around - but only one NAME = ALLAH.

In my humble opinion - the one thing that identifies a true beliver in YHVH is the recognition of the special relationship that exists between YHVH and the Jews. They are His peculiar people. His covenant with them is an everlasting covenant. Their enemies are His enemies - their friends are His friends. Jesus is a Jew - He loves Israel - He wept for Jerusalem shortly before His crucificxion. A true Christian will love Israel as Jesus does and should pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. The Quran is filled with little more than contempt and hatred for Jews and Christians - if you think dhimmitude is an extention of gracious love from Allah toward the 'people of the book' - think again.

Josuha 24:15

... choose this day whom you will serve ... as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. [the LORD = YHVH]
