kman, you state that; "if you want to call God, "Allah", that's fine and, he himself probably doesn't care as long as you know which ideology is the one to attach whatever "label" you want to use".

The real information is that; "Allah is not an Arab name for God". If you want more info, then "google" Allah.

Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah." The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, Prophets, and Apostles. In fact, he was the Moon-god. Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most widespread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. The ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. Allah name of deity was pre-existed much before the arrival of Islam. Pre-Islamic Pagan peoples worshipped Allah as their supreme deity (moon-god).
The most popular names were Nanna, Suen, Asimbabbar and "al-ilah". His symbol was the crescent moon.
