Reader comment on item: What Is Israel's Next Move In The New Middle East?
in response to reader comment: 'Allah,' Is Not the God of the Bible

It is very strange and odd that the learned judges of Malaysia refer to a Facebook commentary reproduced in the Daniel Pipes Comments section by someone called Brutus Balan, who as far as I know is neither a religious scholor nor a learned judge deciding on religious matters. One would have thought the the Malaysian judges would take legal rulings on Islamic issues - like they have done by referring to Indian Court Rulings - as a precedent. By going for an internet comment of a private individual in his private capacity - which is the essense of internet postings - in deciding whether Malaysian Christains can use the word Allah , they have done a great disservice to their high office, putting non-Muslims in Malaysia to much trouble.
