Good prose, to sum it up, all who seek The One G-d are seeking Elohim, Jahweh, or Allah. These are all His names as delivered by His messengers the Prophets, peace and blessings be upon them, of whom Muhammad was the latest. Where I think the article gets it wrong, is that yes, Judaism was the first and original religion, but that the Prophet Jesus was sent to remind the Jews and all peoples to return to the roots of Judaism with their heart, the purest sacrifice. Islam was needed because the message got distorted by greedy men and people started worshiping Jesus instead so Allah sent Gabriel to Muhammad to get people back on track. Now the message of Muhammad is being distorted by men again, but this time it is not greed but vengeance, hatred, and murder. These were not the teachings of either Jesus nor Muhammad,, PBBUT. The Koran states at the very beginning that the Prophet Muhammad said "You do not fight evil with evil, but with love and forgiveness".

There needs to be tolerance on all sides. We need to all understand that we are all subservient to the same G-d. We need to stop fighting amongst ourselves and turn our efforts, united, against the evil ones.
