I think it reasonable to say that you must be living in the Twilight Zone. This debate is not, nor ever has been, about the faith of Islam. It is about the intolerance of those that follow it, their historically proven inability to function as a minority in any country, and the atrocities that they commit in the name of their God.

The claim that Allah means God does not make it the same God. This is absolutely moronic. The word also means god (you will note the subtle change from pronoun to noun there?). Just because two faiths have a single God does not make them identical - any more than the sun worshippers worshipped the same god. We are all well aware of the fact that Islam 'borrowed' numerous characters from the Bible to create this cult. However, as everybody else is aware, these characters retained little else other than their original names - therefore making them different people altogether insofar as faith is concerned. Of course there are parallels between the religions - mainly because the last Prophet could not read or write and therefore 'borrowed' stories from some neighbouring religions.

The problem is exclusively about the inability of Muslims to answer ANY of the more difficult questions that have been put to them on this site about their faith. The only response, and it is incredibly consistent, is 'you don't know what you are talking about'!

However, I would be very interested to know why the steady stream of 'Prophets' that 'have always existed' suddenly ended 1400 years ago

Why is Mohammad the ONLY Prophet who cannot be pictured given the fact that Alexander the Great (another 'prophet' of Islam) and Jesus have been pictured many times and have even been 'blasphemed against' in a far worse manner.

If you accuse people of ignorance of your faith whose fault is their ignorance but your own? You are unable or unwilling to answer any of the questions regarding your own barbaric practices and live in denial. You deserve all that you get. But if you don't like it ...
