My dear Tim you wrote:

>I am indeed a Jew and your opinion mean little to me

If so why did you not provide me with a translation of the very basic and simple Hebrew sentence that I asked you to translate? Or is it that you live in a world of fantasy and you like to pretend to be somthing that you are not! So which one is it?

>I have no hatred for Muslims

Good for you but I have a question for you: as a "Jew" do you believe that your allah (I forgot again that you are a "Jew", silly me) was correct in claiming in Q9:30 that the Jews regard Ezra or 3Uzair as the son of God? And your answer is!

>You seem to have

And your point is?

>You claim that Jesus was "assumed" into heaven

Wrong. No I did not say that Jesus was "assumed" into heaven. The Qur'an says:

1. Bal means "but."

2. Rafa3ahu means "lifted him (Jesus)"

3. Allahu means "Allah"

4. Ilayhi means "to Him (Allah)"

Or "But Allah lifted him (Jesus) up to Him (Allah)"

Nothing here about "assumed"!!

The Quranic word is lifted him or Rafa3ahu (root RF3) and not assumed (him) or akhadhahu and they are very different words with very different meanings.

So where did you get this poor translation of the word: rafa3ahu from? You for sure do not know any Arabic or Hebrew for this matter.

>and he did not die he was God

Right! What can I tell you your Allah and his rasul were poor theologians and their command of basic logic was very defective.

>Well what about the prophet Elijah?

What about the prophet Elijah?

>He was assumed into heaven and did not die, was he God too?

You make a good case for Elijah being God too . See how basic logic can be?

Congratulations my dear Tim: it seems that Elijah is your God too!

>Your Christian logic seems faulty

I will leave this little gem for the readers to judge you my dear Tim

And by the way: what I'm after here is the confused book of your allah nothing more and nothing less

PS; I find it bizarre that you are out to spread the religion of the Arabs that brutalized your ancestors. Shame.
