Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Henry (United States), Jul 21, 2005 at 09:10

There is a MAJOR point that many people keep missing, even though it's a simple one.
The God of Abraham is the God that ALL THREE religions have in common. "Allah" , like "Jehovah" means "God".
People don't seem to have a problem believing that the Jewish God and the Christian God are the same, but when it comes to Muslims and the faith of Islam they just can't seem to connect the dots.
The three religions split off at a certain point, but they all have the same beginning to their faith.
Mind you, I'm not a religious scholar, but the concept here doesnt seem that difficult to grab hold of.
