Comment on Is Allah God?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Mark Smith (United States), Jun 28, 2005 at 23:01

I respect your work and wisdom when it comes to the Middle East and the fanatical Muslims' policy and motives. However, I must disagree with the assessment of comparing just terms such as Allah and God as being the same simply because of linguistics and the way people use the terms. The God Christians and Jews worship is of a different nature than the Allah that Muslims worship. Christians and Jews also do not bow down to a rock in Mecca. There is such extreme differences in the Christian and Muslim "God" (referring to God's nature), and the way the two religions react to those differences in their beliefs. Mohammed simply took what he had learned of Christiainity and Judaism and made changes to fit his whims, thus creating a different god and a different "bible." I will never believe they are the same, and I don't really believe Muslims or Christians believe this in the majority. I would suggest further study on this subject.
