If as you say Mr. Norman, we Christians and Jews have the same God as Muslims, then we will have to acknowledge that God has gone through complete metamorphoses or personality change between 100 AD and 640 AD. The God of the Bible is gentle, forgiving, kind and loving, but Allah is angry, condemning, hateful, intolerant, spiteful and vengeful. For the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, which Christians believe were inspired or directed by God are diametrically opposite from the teachings of Allah through his prophet Muhammad. While Jesus suffered at the hands of his enemies and taught Christians to love their enemies, Muhammad, inspired by Allah, killed, robbed, raped and introduced the worship and obedience to Allah through violence.

Some Ayas from the Holy Qur'an

[2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

[3.118] O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people;

[4.56] (As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

[5.51] O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other

Some scriptures from the Bible

Mat 5:44 Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you.

Mat 18:4 Who so ever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.

Mat 18:21 How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?
Mat 18:22 Jesus said, not until seven times: but, until seventy times seven.

Now Mr. Norman, do you see any difference between God and Allah?
