It was more like a personal issue that mutated into another religious argument.
the basic argument as you probably noticed "the comment of that "A" guy advising "Sarah" to
change her name becasue he's not familiar with a muslim to be called so "since it's a basic
biblical name"..

my reply was adding an information that those following names :
Sarah,hagar,marym (mary)Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma'il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob) and his 12 sons,,Dawoud(david),Yousef(joseph),Jesus(Isa),Moses(Musa).. { were mentioned in Quran as an Islamic names also}..

Then the issue was re-opened with a very provoking reply accusing us and "our fake" religion to be copycatting from bible !
maybe "Sarah" wasn't aware of the new and old "Testament"issue which goes under the same
book named bible, frankly a lot of muslims get confused by the mistranslation of that word"
bible".It's defined in our book this way "Injeel" stands for the "Gospels",Taurat stands for(Torah)
common phrasal mistake to translate that word "Injeel" into "Bible",becasue from your point of
view,bible stands for both "new and old testament"..

It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur'an) to you (Muhammad ) with truth,
confirming what came before it. And he sent down the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel). Aali Imran 3:3)

"My respect is saved for the decent people only"
-Though i was aware of that fact,i couldn't stop my self from laughing over that "IQ" zero thing !
as you don't stand "some" in here,we dont as well.And honestly what i can't take is arguing with someone who keeps talking about secret plans for Islamic invasion over the falling Europe! ! so yes, i'll laugh to my knees whenever another act of stupidity is being committed !" that wont affect my intelligence though .incase you were worried !"

regarding your point
"Jesus was a Jew. A Muslim may argue this point but does that mean that Mary (Maryam) and
Joseph were also not Jews?"

And will make him ['Iesa (Jesus)] a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying): "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allâh's Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I bring the dead to life by Allâh's Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe. (Aali Imran 3:49)
No better answer than this i believe..

P.S"hope you've read my article regarding the geographic location of those prophets,and why
would we be named after them apart from religious beliefs !"
