Reader comment on item: Obama's Mansion, Saddam's Money
in response to reader comment: kman, who is Allah

Submitted by kman (United States), Nov 19, 2008 at 22:24

I did know that the name "Allah" came from a moon goddess of that period of time. I had never heard the details behind it. Just one of those bajillion things that have to be done but, well ... it is one of a bajillion things.

I thank you for filling in some blanks for me. I'm going to copy that info to my documents.

My only point was one where people are always trying to make a point by introducing something irrelevant. Someone has tried to make a point by saying well, Actually it says "Allah", Yaweh (sp?), or some other way to drag me off the main point. The main "point" is, I don't care what your label is, let's get down to the ideology, message, and so on. That is the issue not whatever we think the label is. Let's get beyond the label and look at actions, messages, and results.
