For Fahad: and Arabian imperialism!

Reader comment on item: The Pentagon Looks at the Koran
in response to reader comment: Quran does not belong to the Saudis

My dear fahad rabina yu3alimuka akthar wa akthar, but my dear Fahad the Qur'an, Islam, the Arabic language and even Allah himself are the products of the Arabs. If Allah and the Qur'an really do not belong only to the Arabs as you calim how do you explain the following?:

1. If you read the pre-Islamic history of al-Hijaz you will come to the conclusion that Hubal the chief pre-Islamic Arabian pagan deity in Mecca is no other than Allah.

2. Ramadan fasting: If you, let us say, live in the arctic and if you have Ramadan during the summer months you will be fasting 24 hours per day and if it is in the winter there will be no fasting. Unless Allah was indeed an Arabian deity that knew nothing beyond Arabia! And so nuch for the retarded Muslim calendar.

3. Why is the Qur'an silent about Hinduism and Buddhism (two of the major religions of mankind) but the Qur'an is familiar with the religions of the Middle East unless Allah was a local Arabian deity that knew nothing beyond the Middle East!

4. Why did we have the Mawali system where non-Arabs and non-Muslims have to abandon their old languages and cultures to become Arabs unless Allah indeed was an Arabian deity?

Your arguments so far are bogus.
