Allah means god in Arabic?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

To say that Arab Christians used Allah as term for God is hilarious as even Muslims Arabs know that the term for God or god is ILLAH even the Arab Muslims say LA ILLAHa ILLA ALLAH that means there is no God but Allah.

They say that ALLAH is short for AL ILLAH so Allah they claim simply means the god
