To Shakeel: Why the non-reply?

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: RE: To Shakeel: Allah in need of anger management

Shakeel, you have avoided answering my question. If people who commit abomination are doing it because of Shaitan it is because Allah wanted them to since he created Shaitan for that purpose. Why does Allah then throw them into hell for serving his purpose?

You also have not said anything about this God with a giant size ego which needs to be bolstered with constant praise about his greatness and mercifulness. Allah's happiness depends on human praise. You yourself can if you wish make Allah dance to your tune. Do Shaitan's bidding and he is convulsed in anger. Sing his praises and He gives you a lollipop. Since there are more people on earth doing Shaitan's bidding I can imagine Allah gnashing his teeth almost continuously since he created Adam. That's why heaven needs an anger management clinic.

That brings up another thought. How is it that more people do Shaitan's bidding (polytheists, People of the Book, sinful Muslims) than Allah's. Who is more powerful?
