Some thoughts.

I think it is both strange and puzzling why you would look for signs of your history in the Holy Bible yet explain to all who will listen that the book is corrupt. I repeat, you cannot have it both ways. This must cause great confusion and internal conflict within your mind and might explain why you are told that you cannot question Mohammad. It also might explain why you are not allowed to have Bibles so that you can read and study for yourself and not have to have someone else explain things to you. Through Ishmael you want to find a relationship with the people in the Book, but at the same time you are taught to hate them, despise them, and curse them. Surely you see that it does not make sense to yearn for a connection with a people but at the same time wish for their destruction.

I do not think there is any more to say.
