Look, you are being called upon to expend in Allah's Way, yet some of you are being niggardly, whereas the one who is niggardly is, in fact, being niggardly only to himself. Allah is Self-Sufficient: it is you who are the needy. If you turn away, Allah will replace you by another people, and they will not be like you. (47:38) (O Prophet!) Tell those of My servants who believe that they should establish Prayer and spend out of what We have provided them with, both secretly and openly, before there arrives the Day when there will be no bargaining, nor any mutual befriending. (14:31)

The Word 'Elohim' in the Hebrew Qur'ân

The Word 'Elohim' in the Hebrew Qur'ân


Often the missionaries try to argue that the name for God is Yahweh, and that since Allâh () is not etymologically related to this name (though they sometimes reluctantly admit that Elohim is related), it therefore follows that Muslims worship a different deity. However, what they fail to recognise is that it is etymologically accepted that the root word of Elohim (), which is eloh, is indeed

[...]a cognate form of the word allah, the designation of deity used by the Arabs.[1]

The following appears in Qur'ân 1:1 of the Hebrew translation[2]:


B'shem Elohim, ha-Rachaman, V'ha-Rachum

Compare it with the very same verse in the Arabic Qur'ân:


Bismi-Allâh ar-Rahman ar-Rahim

Both translates in English as: "In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful."[3]

Apart from the example we gave above, we would like to present more examples from the Hebrew translation of the Qur'ân, which uses the word Elohim and Eloh. Note that the Hebrew translation always renders Ilah and Allâh as Eloh and Elohim, respectively.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following appears in Qur'ân 3:2 of the Hebrew translation



Elohim, ein eloh mibaladaiv, ha-Chai, ha-Qayam

The original Arabic rendering of Qur'ân 3:2 is



Allâhu la ilaha ila huwal hayyul qayyum

which translates into English as: "God! There is no god but He, the Living, the Self-Subsisting, Eternal".


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The next image appears in Qur'ân 3:18 of the Hebrew translation:



He'id Elohim ki ein eloh mibaladaiv, V'ha-Malakhim V'Anshei hada'at (ya'idu ken). Po'el tsedeq ein eloh mibaladaiv, ha-gibor, V'ha-chakam

The original Arabic rendering of Qur'ân 3:18 would be



Shaheeda-Allâhu innahu la ilaha ila huwa wal malaikatu wa ulul `ilmi qaima bil qisti la ilaha ila huwal `azeezul hakeem

This translates into English as: "There is no god but He: That is the witness of God, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, The Exalted in Power, The Wise".


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This final example is from Qur'ân 6:1 of the Hebrew translation:



HatT'hilah L'Elohim, asher bara et ha-shama'im V'et ha-arets, V'ya'as afelah V'orah...

The Arabic from Qur'ân 6:1 is



Alhamdu-lillahi lazhee khalaqa' as-sama waa ti wal-ardha wa-ja 'alaazhu-lu mati wan-nuur...

The English translation is: "Praise be to God, Who created the heavens and the earth, and made the darkness and the light...."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The similarities are so obvious that it can no longer be denied, in the face of these linguistic evidence, that Elohim is indeed related to the word Allâh, as both Hebrew and Arabic are sister languages in the Semitic family. Insha'allâh, the comparisons above will help quell the doubts of those who have been duped into believing that "Muslims worship a different god" by Christian missionary propaganda, and which some missionaries had even go so far as to say that "Allâh" is the name of a moon god.

And only God knows best.

Do Muslims Worship The Moon God? Refutation To The Myth By Etymological Evidence


Christians who try to claim that Allâh () is the name of the "moon god", are influenced by the writings of Dr. Robert Morey, who wrote as such in his book The Islamic Invasion. Regardless, they (and Dr. Morey included) are playing a silly game. The writings of Dr. Morey are nothing more than the thoughts of a mid-Western creationist closet-fascist, and were not originally intended for a wide audience. Regardless, his "evidence" of a so-called moon deity named "Allâh" actually hurts his religion as much as it does Islam. The basic claim is that the pre-Islamic Semitic world (not just Arabia) was the home to widespread worship of a moon god or goddess named "Allâh". The problem with speculations about pre-Islamic deities from the Semitic world in this case is the fact that any inscription prior to the advent of Islam is also prior to the introduction of diacritical marks in the Semitic languages. Why is this a problem? Well, if one claims to have found evidence of a moon god named "Allâh" in Palestine, Syria, or Lebanon, this claim applies to the respective deities of both Christianity and Islam. The first time the word "God" appears in the Bible, it is in Genesis 1:1, when it states:


B'reshit bara ELOHIM et ha-shama'im, V'et ha-arets.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

While Christians will forever speculate on the word "Elohim" (), honest Hebrew speakers would admit that this archaic word for God has a history that is lost to us. The "royal plurality" hypothesis may be a possible explanation for why the word is plural, but this seems to have been unknown to early Hebrew speakers (such as the Jewish missionary who, according to the Kuzari, competed with Muslims and Christians to convert the king of the Khazars in the eighth century). It is difficult however to translate this word to "gods," as the Hebrew text conjugates the verb "to create" in the singular. Regardless, (Elohim) is a plural forum of a more basic root-word for God, (eloh)

However, if one were to find the word (eloh) (alef-lamed-heh) in an inscription written in paleo-Hebrew, Aramaic, or some sort of Nabatean script, it could be pronounced numerous ways without the diacritical marks to guide the reader. This letter combination (which can be proncounced alah) is the root for the verb "to swear" or "to take an oath," as well as the verb "to deify" or "to worship", as can be seen as follows:

[1]

The root itself finds its origin with an older root, el, which means God, deity, power, strength, et cetera.

So one of the basic Hebrew words for God, (eloh), can easily be pronounced alah without the diacritical marks. Not surprisingly, the Aramaic word for God[2] is (alah). This word, in the standard script (), or the Estrangela script (), is spelled alap-lamad-heh (ALH), which are the exact corresponding letters to the Hebrew eloh. The Aramaic is closely related to the more ancient root word for God, eel.[3]

The Arabic word for God, Allâh () , is spelled in a very similar way, and is remotely related to the more generic word for deity, (ilah). We are quickly starting to notice the obvious linguistic and etymological connections between the respective words for God in these closely related Semitic languages (e.g. Allâh, Alah, and Eloh being related to Ilah, Eel, and El, respectively). So, in conclusion, if monolingual tri-theists want to claim that Allâh/Alah was the name of a tribal moon god, and that worship of such a deity is a gross pagan practice, they should throw their Bibles in the dustbin for including this deity in its text. They should also repudiate Jesus for calling on an version of this deity while on the cross (as per the Biblical account).

Interestingly enough, there is proof from a Christian source that clearly demonstrates the above.

[4]


The above book mentions that Ezra and the Prophet Daniel called their God as "Elah". The passage above is more than enough to counter the allegation made by misguided Christians about Allâh being a moon god. For, if Allâh is the moon god, then what were Ezra and Daniel worshipping?

Conclusion

Pantheist/Buddhist thinker Brett Neichin has said of Christians that they are reformed Jews and do not even know it. Indeed, much of Christianity finds its roots in the Semitic world, yet the believers of this religion are notorious for their interpretations of the faith in a European world view. This is the reason they would actually try to find fault with a religion that acknowledges the existence of the exact same God they do; this is the reason they would erroneously claim that Eloh, Alah, and Allâh are different Gods.

The question of why Islam adopted the crescent moon as its symbol, or why it uses the lunar calendar, is addressed in What is the Significance of the Crescent Moon in Islam?

And certainly, only God knows best!

But "Allah" sounds different than the Hebrew "Yahweh"!


The sections of this article are:

1- But "Allah" sounds different than the Hebrew "Yahweh"!
2- How can a title beginning with "the" be a name? Yahweh, also means "the Eternal", which means "Al-Samad" in Arabic. It's just a title!
3- "Yahweh" wasn't even the first thing GOD Almighty was addressed with in the Bible!
4- So why then does the Arabic Bible use "Allah" and "Yahweh" for GOD?
5- Why did Jesus choose to say the Aramaic "Eloi" to the Hebrew speaking people?
6- This excellent article shows from Hebrew sources that Genesis 1:1 said "Allah". It proved from Hebrew sources with images that GOD Almighty's original Holy Name was indeed "Allah".
7- Hebrew "Allaah" is the closest word to "Allah" and it means Allah.


One thing that many non-Hebrew speaking Jews and Christians mistake about is the name of GOD Almighty in the Bible. "Yahweh" in Hebrew means "The LORD" or the "The GOD". It is not a name. Let us look at the following quotations from Christian and Jewish resources:

"Judaism teaches that while God's name exists in written form, it is too holy to be pronounced. The result has been that, over the last 2000 years, the correct pronunciation has been lost." (Mankind's Search for GOD, p. 225).

Here we clearly see that the pronunciation for the original name for GOD Almighty had been lost, and the Jews have no idea what the exact pronunciation is from their Holy Scriptures and resources.

"About 3,500 years ago, God spoke to Moses, saying: 'Thus shall you speak to the Israelites: The LORD [Hebrew: YHWH], the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you: This shall be My name forever, this My appellation for all eternity.' (Exodus 3:15; Psalm 135:13)" (Mankind's Search for GOD, p.225).

"....the four Hebrew consonants YHWH (Yahweh) that in their Latinized form have come to be known over the centuries in English as JEHOVAH." (Mankind's Search for GOD, p.225).

So the word "YHWH" or "Yahweh" or "Jehovah" is not the ORIGINAL name, but the appellation (title) for the Almighty GOD. This is perfectly fine, because Jews, Christians and Muslims call on to GOD Almighty as "The LORD" or "The GOD", which means "Yahweh" or "Jehovah" in Hebrew and "Al-Rab" in Arabic. "Al-Rab" in Arabic and "Yahweh" in Hebrew and the other translations in all other languages are indeed GOD Almighty's title. But they are NOT His original Name!

Let us look at what Exodus 3:15 and Psalm 135:13 from the NIV Bible say: "God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, `The LORD [Notice that they didn't write Jehovah. "The LORD" in only a title], the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob--has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation. (From the NIV Bible, Exodus 3:15)"

"Your name, O LORD, endures forever, your renown, O LORD, through all generations. (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 135:13)"

So as we clearly see from the above Verses from the NIV Bible, the original name for GOD Almighty is not "Yahweh". The title "The LORD" is only a title and a nick name (if you will) that we give to GOD Almighty. But "Yahweh" is definitely NOT THE ORIGINAL NAME for GOD Almighty.

"Allah" on the other hand is a name. It is the name of GOD Almighty. Below, you will see ample proofs from the Aramaic language that the name of GOD Almighty was indeed "Allah".

"GOD" in Arabic and Aramaic sound the same, and it is "Allah".

Jesus peace be upon him spoke Aramaic during his ministry.

"Allah" is GOD's Name, "Elaw" means "GOD" in Aramaic: How can they be the same? I clearly proved from the Noble Quran that "Allah" means the Supreme GOD Almighty in Arabic.



How can a title beginning with "the" be a name?

Beside the crystal clear proofs above about Yahweh or Jehovah being just a title or "appellation" (Exodus 3:15) for GOD Almighty, I would like to raise this simple question, and simple common sense test:

How can any title that begins with "the" be a name?

If I call you "the man", as it is a common slang for a person to be called that here in the US, would that really make your name "the man"?

A Christian just recently told me that in Hebrew, Yahweh not only means "The LORD" or the "The GOD", but it also means "The Eternal" (according to the New Dictionary of the Bible). That's all perfect with me.

The Eternal, Yahweh or Jehovah, means "Al-Samad" in Arabic. Allah Almighty called Himself "Al-Samad" in the Noble Quran (Noble Verse 112:2). I am willing to address Allah Almighty from now on by the "Al-Samad" title (Yahweh in Hebrew) and not by "Allah Almighty" (His Holy Name) if that's going to make Christians understand Islam and embrace it!

How difficult is it to comprehend that a title beginning with "the" can never be a name! Let alone being an original name!

Please visit: "Allah" is GOD's Name, "Elaw" means "GOD" in Aramaic: How can they be the same? I clearly proved from the Noble Quran that "Allah" means the Supreme GOD Almighty in Arabic.



"Yahweh" wasn't even the first thing GOD Almighty was addressed with in the Bible!

Some Christians still insist that GOD Almighty's original Holy Name was Yahweh. They rely on Exodus 3:15 to prove this nonsense. I clearly proved in the section above that "Yahweh" in Exodus 3:15 was only a title and not a name, and it means "The LORD", "The GOD" and the "The Eternal" (according to the New Dictionary of the Bible).

Now, let's assume for a second that "Yahweh" is a name, which is really ridiculous since its English translation starts with "the". This still doesn't prove that GOD Almighty's original name is Yahweh! Exodus 3:15 that Christians are so big on using was revealed to Prophet Moses peace be upon him. How many years are there between Adam and Moses peace be upon them? Probably thousands! If not even millions!

So according to the Christians' logic, GOD Almighty was Nameless from the time of Adam until the time of Moses where He, the Almighty, supposedly had finally found Himself and His identity. Correct? Wrong! That's all a bunch of nonsense!

GOD Almighty's original Holy Name is clearly "Allah" or "Elaw"! Like I said above, when Jesus peace be upon him was put on the cross, he cried to GOD Almighty and said "Eloi", which is derived from "Elaw" or "Allah". He didn't say "Yahwahoi"!

Therefore, any Christian who decides to act stubborn and reject the crystal clear fact that GOD Almighty's original Holy Name was indeed "Allah", because of fearing that it would prove Islam to be the faith of Truth, is guilty of sinning against GOD Almighty!



So why then does the Arabic Bible use "Allah" and "Yahweh" for GOD?

A Christian raised this question: Why do Arabic Bibles used "Yahweh" for GOD, if "Yahweh" wasn't GOD Almighty's original Name?

Well first of all, the Arabic Bible uses both "Allah" and "Yahweh". Please visit this article to see images from the Arabic Bible showing the use of the word "Allah" for GOD Almighty. It is important to know that "Yahweh" is not an Arabic word. Just like "The LORD" is also not Arabic either. The proper translation for "Yahweh" in the Arabic Bible should've been "Al-Samad" for "The Eternal", or "Al-Rab" for "The LORD", depending on which word they wish to choose, since Yahweh means both.

So them inserting the word "Yahweh" in the Arabic Bible is stupid and self-contradicting, because if you choose to call GOD Almighty "Yahweh" in Arabic and force the Hebrew word into Arabic, then you can't call Him "Allah" at the same time! Calling GOD Almighty "Al-Samad" or "Al-Rab" for Yahweh would've been a different thing and contradiction-free.

So my response is: The Arabic theologians need a basic lesson in Arabic and Hebrew!



An addition from brother Yusuf; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:

"The newest edition by the International Bible Society starts out "fi al-Bid'i khalaqa ALLAH al-samawati wal-ardha." The normal word for God, moreover, is "Allah," in the Christian dialects of Arabic as well as in the Jewish dialects....

"(Brother Yusuf telling a Christian) Who said we aren't? You said "Allah" wasn't the word for God in the Bible. It starts out right at the beginning and continue throughout. And then you select out a single verse, ignoring the rest of the entire Bible, OT as well as NT. The verse you quoted is also rendered in English as Yahweh, not God; so what is your point? We are talking about the normal designation for the One True God.

You ignored, moreover, that this is also the case in the Christian and Jewish dialects of Arabic. It is also the case in the Christian liturgies, as for instance in the Maronite liturgy. What more do you want? God is Allah; Allah is God, and Allah should be translated, not transliterated."


To further prove my point, let us look at Genesis 2:4:

"This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created. When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens- (From the NIV Bible, Genesis 2:4)"

So as you can clearly see, "Yahweh" is clearly a title that means "The LORD" and not a Name for GOD Almighty.



Why did Jesus choose to say the Aramaic "Eloi" to the Hebrew speaking people?

Why did Jesus sacrifice Hebrew and spoke the Aramaic "Eloi" despite the fact that the people around him were Jewish and spoke Hebrew? Because Jesus peace be upon him knew that GOD Almighty's Holy Name is Allah, and Eloi (my GOD) is derived from it. The Hebrew "Yahweh" (the LORD or the Eternal) was made mandatory for the Jews only. As shown in the first section of the article, the Jews because of their inability to pronounce GOD Almighty's Holy Name properly were commanded by GOD Almighty to call Him as "The LORD":

"Judaism teaches that while God's name exists in written form, it is too holy to be pronounced. The result has been that, over the last 2000 years, the correct pronunciation has been lost." (Mankind's Search for GOD, p. 225).

Here we clearly see that the pronunciation for the original name for GOD Almighty had been lost, and the Jews have no idea what the exact pronunciation is from their Holy Scriptures and resources.

But the reason why Jesus called unto GOD Almighty in Aramaic, despite the fact that everyone spoke Hebrew and the Law of the Jews was written in the Hebrew language is because Jesus wanted to call GOD Almighty in the Highest and Most perfect form.

Addressing GOD Almighty as "The LORD" or Yahweh would've been only proper to the Hebrew speaking people, the Jews, but not to the Gentiles and all of the non-Jewish people and generations after that.



This excellent article shows from Hebrew sources that Genesis 1:1 said "Allah":

Hebrew "Allaah" is the closest word to "Allah" and it means Allah:

The following was given to me by Denis; may Allah Almighty guide him to Islam.

The closest Hebrew word to the Arabic Allaah (alif-lam-lam-ha) would be the Hebrew Allah (alef-lamed-lamed-heh), which is used by Hebrew speaking Muslims, and has been used by Arabic Jews. For examples of the Hebrew equivalent of Bismillaah (which is Bshem Allah) see the following link. That is the closest possible Hebrew word to the Arabic Allah. It is the exact same word, and it has been part of Hebrew for at least 15 centuries (though I do concede it was almost certainly adopted from Arabic).

Non-Muslim Scientists embraced Islam after discovering the Miracles of the Noble Quran!
Current mood: calm


Allah Almighty promising to show us His Miracles in the outside Universe and in our Embryology:

"We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and INSIDE THEIR SELVES, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things? (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"





Very Important Discovery:

A new star forming out of a cloud of gas and dust (nebula), which is one of the remnants of the "smoke" that was the origin of the whole universe. (The Space Atlas, Heather and Henbest, page 50)
Allah Almighty said: "Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke...(The Noble Quran, 41:11)"
The Noble Quran on the Origin of the Universe
Only Islam claims that the universe was originated from Dust and Hot Gas, or Smoke.





Another Very Important Discovery:


Allah Almighty Said: "And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh ROSY LIKE RED HIDE - (The Noble Quran, 55:37)"
What Allah Almighty is Saying here is that when Galaxies explode, they form a red-rose-shaped explosion. He is also telling us that the Universe will all turn into red exploded galaxies looking like red or reddish roses when the Day of Judgement happens.

The explosion of Stars (FORMING RED ROSES), Galaxies and the Universe in the Noble Quran had been confirmed by NASA.

"This web site has been developed with the aim of promoting and publicizing the works of Harun Yahya, a prominent Turkish thinker and author. His books have attracted great attention both in Turkey and worldwide. In the 90's especially, the works of Harun Yahya have been a means of intellectual awakening for many Muslims, and non-Muslims alike, in the face of the illusions of the modern age. In other words, the name Harun Yahya is an invitation to the truth.
....................
The books of Harun Yahya and thus this web site seek to recall various crucial facts, which people are led to disregard and even deny under the influence of the turmoil of the modern age. One of these basic facts is that of creation, that the universe, living things and man, are not self-existing entities, but the artifacts of God, the Supreme Creator. We are all created by Him and to Him we will all return. The allegedly "scientific" challenges to this fact — like Darwinism and other materialistic dogmas — are nothing but deceptions, as explained in this site."

"Allah" is GOD's Name, "Elaw" means "GOD" in Aramaic: How can they be the same?
Current mood: curious


This is the argument that I received: How can the Arabic "Allah" equal to the Aramaic "Elaw", when "Allah" is only a Name for GOD Almighty in Arabic, while "Elaw" actually means "GOD"? "Allah" does not mean "GOD" in Arabic, does it?

The response is actually quite simple: "Elaw", or "ilah" in both Aramaic and Arabic respectively are derived from the mother word "Allah". In Islam, GOD Almighty has 99 Names/Attributes: Most Merciful, The Great, Most Gracious, etc... "Allah" is one of those Holy Names/Attributes. Muslims often refer to GOD Almighty as "Allah", because it is not only His Holy Name, but it also means that He is the Supreme GOD. That is why some English translators of the Noble Quran such as Abdullah Yusuf Ali (may Allah Almighty bless him and rest his soul. Ameen) translate "Allah" in the Arabic Quran as "God" in the English translation for some Noble Verses.

To further prove that "Allah" in Arabic means the Supreme GOD Almighty, let us read the following Noble Verses:

"Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him. (The Noble Quran, 112:1-4)"

This is how these Noble Verses are translated in the Abdullah Yusuf Ali English translation. Notice that he used "God" for "Allah". The Noble Verses in Arabic are as follows:

"Qul huwa Allah ahad, Allah al-samad; lam yalid wa lam yuwlad; wa lam yakun lahu qufuwan ahad. (The Noble Quran, 112:1-4)"

These Noble Verses clearly prove that "Allah" means Supreme GOD in Arabic, because they start with "Say he is Allah..." Notice that it didn't say "Say his name is Allah...", even though GOD Almighty's Holy Name is "Allah". But the "Say he is Allah..." quote clearly indicates that "Allah" here is a DESCRIPTION or an ATTRIBUTE to GOD Almighty, and not just a personal Name. This clearly proves that "Allah" means the Supreme GOD Almighty in Arabic. There are other Noble Verses that I can present from the Noble Quran that would further prove this point, but I think Noble Verses 112:1-4 are sufficient enough.

When a person embraces Islam, he/she would say:

"I bare witness that there is no GOD but Allah, and Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger."

The "no GOD but Allah" means that Allah Almighty is the supreme GOD. Many gods and idols exist in the world. People took idols for worship as the far eastern Hindus and Budhists do. Others took GOD Almighty's creation such as fire and the sun as gods such as the Zoroastrians and others. Others even took humans and worshiped them such as the Egyptians during Pharaoh's time, and the modern Trinitarians worshiping Jesus, the Son of Mary peace be upon him and her.

So gods did and still exist today and will always exist. It is part of our human nature to worship idols in a hope to get closer with GOD Almighty Himself, the Supreme GOD Almighty. But man does not need to go through any god, because The Most Supreme GOD of all, Allah Almighty, exists and had always existed, and He is close to us and He listens to our Prayers:

"When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way. (The Noble Quran, 2:186)"

So there is no need for us to associate any partners with Allah Almighty to worship Him. We can worship Him directly without any idols or mediators. Please visit What is the Wisdom of Islam? to learn more about the Oneness of Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran.

The words "elaw" in Aramaic, and "ilah" in Arabic are words that were derived from the root word "Allah". Allah Almighty is the GOD of the Universe, and He is the Supreme GOD. When Jesus cried to GOD Almighty "Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani?" in Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34, he said "My God my God why have you foresaken me?" in English translation. "Eloi" is derived from "Elaw", and the later is derived from "Allah".



Conclusion:

The Aramaic "Elaw" and the Arabic "Allah" are the same. The Aramaic "Elaw" is derived from the Arabic "Allah", and it means "GOD". "Allah" in Arabic also means "GOD", the Supreme GOD Almighty. You can easily see the close similarity in their pronunciation.

Bin Laden, Bush Serve the Same Master

Bin Laden, Bush Serve the Same Master
By Henry Makow Ph.D. November 25, 2002
The headquarters of Islamic terrorism is London, England, where the Anglo-American Establishment sponsors the radical "Muslim Brotherhood" in order to advance its long-term goal of plutocratic global dictatorship.
These globalists have fabricated a bogus "war on terror" to crush the remaining vestiges of nationalism and democracy in both Muslim countries and the West. Expect more incitements like the current "Miss World " imbroglio to convince both sides the other endangers its way of life.
In a comprehensive online report, the perceptive Hawaii-based researcher Peter Goodgame concludes: "Osama bin Laden is not, nor has he ever been, the leader of the international Islamist movement which is directed by the International Muslim Brotherhood."
Goodgame continues: "Osama bin Laden has been used effectively as a figurehead for the Brotherhood's militant branch to take responsibility for its atrocities, but he is not the mastermind... By the same token, the Muslim Brotherhood is a tool by the British-based Globalists whose main objective is to overthrow the established world order and create a new one-world system of global governance."
Goodgame cites former British Intelligence Officer, Dr. John Coleman, who says the Muslim Brotherhood is a secret freemason order set up by the great names of British Middle East Intelligence, T.E. Lawrence, Bertrand Russell and St. John Philby to "keep the Middle East backward so its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted."
The Muslim Brotherhood has been used to check nationalist movements led by such figures as Nasser, Bhutto and the Shah of Iran who tried to develop their countries. Without the British, "radical Islam would have remained the illegitimate, repressive minority movement that it has always been, and the Middle East would have remained stable and prosperous," Goodgame says.
The Muslim Brotherhood is now a powerful faction in the global oligarchy. Goodgame cites Robert Drefuss, author of "Hostage to Khomeini" (1980):
"The real Muslim Brothers are ... the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish, or Persian families whose genealogy places them in the oligarchic elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and, especially, to the British oligarchy.
And the Muslim Brotherhood is money. Together, the Brotherhood probably controls several tens of billions of dollars in immediate liquid assets, and controls billions more in ...everything from oil trade and banking to drug-running, illegal arms merchandising, and gold and diamond smuggling. By allying with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Anglo-Americans are not merely buying into a terrorists-for-hire racket; they are partners in a powerful and worldwide financial empire..."
By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.
The globalists have long been using wars to subvert, demoralize and destroy Western civilization. They backed the Nazis and the Soviets in World War Two. They created the Punch and Judy show that was the Cold War. They tied U.S. hands while backing Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.
Who are they? Also called the illuminati, they represent a recrudescence of the alliance of Rothschild finance and European aristocracy secretly coordinated by a Satanic dogma hidden in freemasonry.
They plan a new feudalism that will impoverish the middle classes, depopulate and enslave the masses, and leave only the rich served by a technocracy. The whole world will resemble a repressive third world country governed by the IMF, UN and World Bank.
The globalists are headquartered in London and centred on the Rothschild-dominated Bank of England, MI-6 and the secretive Round Table society, which spawned the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The American branches include the Council on Foreign Relations, CIA and the Rockefeller foundations which all ensure the American people continue to finance and enforce one-world tyranny. The Bush family has owed its prominence to this cabal ever since grandfather Prescott Bush helped arrange financing for Nazism.
Zionism is supposed to represent the "West" in this sham war with Islam. Americans are being groomed to become like Israelis, victims of daily acts of "Muslim terror." Last week, when another suicide bomber struck in Jerusalem, Benjamin Netanyahu said, "Whether the explosion takes place in Bali, Moscow, New York or Jerusalem we are all united in a war against a common terrorist enemy."
According to Swiss journalist Richard Labeviere ("Dollars for Terror: The United States and Islam" 2000) radical Islam is an essential "complementary enemy" to Zionism, which also seeks regional hegemony. According to the "Yinon Memorandum" (1982) Israel intends to splinter the Arab countries into several small cantons along ethnic lines. None of these will be able to challenge Israel, which, like the US is a disposable implement of the globalist agenda. (207)
The Palestinian terrorist "Hamas" movement is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood. According to Labeviere, it serves the interests of the Israeli right wing, and has received secret financial support from the Israeli "Shin Beth." (203-205). Thus, Palestinian suicide bombers play straight into Ariel Sharon's hand.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, "Muslim terrorist attacks" are an excuse to lay the foundations of a police state. These attacks, which could become nuclear or biological, might serve as a pretext to declare martial law, suspend elections and round up dissidents, i.e. anyone who is not buying the lie.
This may seem incomprehensible to Americans now when the economy is still being propped up. Once the US has done the globalist's dirty work, interest rates could rise and debt ridden Americans could be stripped of their assets, as they were in the Depression.
The Homeland Security Act is designed to control all US law enforcement agencies so that elements in the CIA and Mossad can target Americans with impunity, like they did on Sept. 11. American agencies were designed to remain independent so they could serve as a check on each other.
The Act is also designed to allow George W. to place his henchmen in positions of control. Remember, he is a product of a secret Satanic cult, the "Skull and Bones." This sounds gruesome but the Twentieth Century provided many precedents. The illuminati was behind both Nazi and Communist mass slaughter and terror. Our position is akin to the European Jews who disbelieved warnings of the holocaust.
There is even a provision in the Homeland Security Act against whistle blowers. Why? Another provision allows mandatory vaccinations while giving vaccine manufacturers immunity from prosecution. Why? The "Total Information Awareness" program will "red flag" troublemakers by monitoring all personal communications and financial transactions, even your library records. You didn't attack the WTC. Why are you targeted?
What is the justification for this destruction of freedom, which Bush supposedly protects? In 14 months since Sept.11, 2001, there has been not one Muslim terrorist attack in the US despite the bloody American invasion of Afghanistan. If "Al Queda" were capable of pulling off Sept. 11, don't you think it would have planned an encore? Don't get me wrong: I am grateful to the Mossad and CIA for sparing us. But Americans simply don't deserve freedom if they accept this obvious ruse and its ominous consequences.
In conclusion, mankind is in the clutches of a diabolical multi generational conspiracy. A Satanic, criminal cartel has subverted all social institutions and is slowly crafting a brutal global dictatorship. Our political and cultural leaders are witting and unwitting pawns. They are fabricating a phony war between Islam and the West in order to accomplish the degradation of both.
I realize this vision seems incredibly bleak. The mass media holds us in a powerful illusion of normalcy. However, expecting the worst means you will never be disappointed. If you are wrong, you are relieved. If you are right, you are prepared.

LEFT HAND OR RIGHT HAND

Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path

Left Hand Path redirects here, for the debut album of the Swedish death metal band Entombed. see Left Hand Path (album).

The Baphomet, adopted symbol of some "Left-Hand Path" religions.
The terms Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path refer to a postulated dichotomy between two distinct types of religion. The exact meaning of the terms has varied over time; the most modern usage regards religions which focus upon the worship of one or more deities and the observance of strict moral codes as belonging to the Right-Hand Path, while religions which value the advancement of the self over other goals are considered to belong to the Left-Hand Path. This usage of the terms is invoked almost exclusively by proponents of the Left-Hand Path; opponents (almost always of religions described as "Right-Hand Path") either argue that this is a means of dividing religions, is a mislabeled or false dichotomy, or, that much of what is called "left hand" is in actuality satanism, or "black magic".

[edit]

Origins
Throughout history, many cultures have regarded the left hand and left-handedness as evil. This tendency can be seen in the dual meaning of the word left, in the etymology of words such as sinister, which in Latin means both left and unlucky. Consequently, the left hand has often been used as a symbol for the rejection of traditional religion. The word right as used with hand in the Old Testament is generally the Hebrew word yamin meaning stronger, more dextrous. The word for left is smowl meaning dark. God gives and creates with his right hand, it is his wonderful ability to do all things. With his left hand he punishes. Much of this has been contributed by the practice in many cultures of using the left hand to cleanse oneself, thus making the hand "unclean"
It should be noted that the terms "left" and "right" as applied to politics, meaning "progressive" and "conservative" respectively, have an independent origin; they are derived from the seating in the French Legislative Assembly in 1791.
[edit]

Usage in Tantra
Tantra, a set of esoteric Indian traditions with roots in both Hinduism and Buddhism, is often divided by its practitioners into two different paths: dakshinachara and vamachara, translated as Right-Hand Path and Left-Hand Path respectively. Dakshinachara consists of traditional Hindu practices such as asceticism and meditation, while vamachara also includes ritual practices that go against the grain of mainstream Hinduism, including sexual rituals, consumption of alcohol and other intoxicants, animal sacrifice, and flesh-eating. The two paths are viewed by Tantrists as equally valid approaches to enlightenment; vamachara, however, is considered to be the faster and more dangerous of the two, not suitable for all practitioners. This usage of the terms is still current in modern Tantra.
[edit]

Adoption by Western occultism
The prevalence of these terms within the New Age movement, particularly occultism and Satanism, is often attributed to the influence of Helena Blavatsky, who first used the term Left-Hand Path to describe "immoral" religions.
This usage was popularized in a variant form by Aleister Crowley. He does not use the term 'Left-Hand Path' in isolation; it is only used in the phrase 'Brother of the Left-Hand Path', otherwise known as a 'Black Brother' or failed adept in Crowley's system. [1]
Crowley made reference to the Left-Hand Path when describing the point at which the Adept chooses to cross the Qabalistic Abyss, location of Choronzon and the illusory eleventh Sephira, Da'ath or Knowledge. He must give up all that he is, including (for the moment) the guidance of his Holy Guardian Angel and leap into the Abyss. If his accumulated Karma is sufficient to carry him through and he has been utterly thorough in his self-destruction, he becomes a 'babe of the abyss', arising as a Star.
If, however, he preserves some fragment of ego or fears to cross at all, then he becomes encysted. The layers of his self, which he could have shed in the Abyss, ossify around him. He is then titled a 'Brother of the Left Hand Path', who will eventually be broken up and disintegrated against his will, since he has not chosen to disintegrate himself voluntarily.
Crowley, significantly, never presents a 'Left-Hand Path' as a matter of conscious choice. It is the consequence of failure, not a legitimate alternative that may be chosen. This is at odds with the use of the term in modern occultism; those who are ignorant of the technicalities of Crowley's system sometimes state that a magician at the brink of the Abyss may choose the right or left hand path.
Although he sympathized with some Nietzschean aspects of Nazi rhetoric (at least, before he knew what they meant by the words), Crowley linked their single-minded focus on racial purity and political power with the "Left-Hand Path".
While this usage of the terms is still current in some occult circles, many occultists now see the Left-Hand Path as encompassing all modern occult practices, while the Right-Hand Path is considered to encompass traditional religions, such as Christianity, though most Christians would disagree with such a classification. Aleister Crowley half-seriously referred to the Christian clergy as the Black Brotherhood.
New religious movements which describe themselves as followers of the Left-Hand Path inverted much of the symbolism that they associate with the more "traditional" Right-Hand Path, such as the following Biblical passage:
And he shall separate them one from another,
as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.
And he shall set the sheep on his right,
but the goats on his left.
Matthew 25: 32-33
Taking a cue from this, modern followers of the Left-Hand Path in the West sometimes utilize the symbol of a goat or Baphomet, and sometimes refer to followers of Right-Hand Path religions as sheep, implying that they exhibit a "herd mentality".
[edit]

Usage in modern occultism
Today, the terms Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path are almost exclusively used by self-proclaimed followers of the Left-Hand Path, who hold varying opinions of the Right-Hand Path; some see the two Paths as equally valid approaches to truth, whose relationship is akin to the balance between Yin and Yang, while others criticize the Right-Hand Path for being too restrictive. According to the latter view, the Right-Hand Path's imposition of formal dogmas and codes of behaviour upon an individual takes away one's ability to be truly responsible for one's own life, thereby destroying a part of one's identity. According to some, this is the main difference between the two Paths: the Left-Hand Path preserves individuality, while the Right-Hand Path destroys it. Conversely, some accuse Left-Hand Path religions of narcissism while praising the Right-Hand Path for its altruism.
Right-Hand Path religions are usually said to share the following properties:
Belief in a higher power, such as a deity.
Obedience to the will of the higher power.
The belief that there is an absolute definition for good and evil that applies to everyone.
Esoteric belief in the existence of a supernatural mechanism, such as Karma, divine retribution, or Threefold Law, which causes the moral decisions that an individual makes to be reciprocated upon himself.
The ultimate goal of having the individual consciousness be absorbed into a greater or cosmic whole.
Left-Hand Path religions are usually said to share the following properties:
The belief that some people can, by attaining spiritual insight, themselves become akin to gods.
The belief that selfless acts do not exist. Fulfilling one's desire is seen as a selfish act bringing the person satisfaction from accomplishing what they want. Altruism is seen as a myth created by conventional religions.
An exoteric understanding of concepts such as karma, divine retribution, or Threefold Law, resulting in fluid, rather than strict, codes of morality.
The belief that the individual self is preeminent, and that all decisions should be made with the goal of cultivating the self (though not the ego).
The belief that each individual is responsible for his own happiness, and that no external force will provide salvation to reward actions which do not advance one's happiness in this life.
The belief that the forces of the universe can be bent to one's personal will by magickal means, and that power gained in such a manner is an aid to enlightenment.
An agnostic view of the existence of deities, or a Platonic view of deities as "first-forms." If deity is perceived as having a consciousness, then all relationships with deity are in the form of a partnership, an alliance which does not require subservience. The prideful deity likes prideful partners.
Those who believe in the existence of this dichotomy usually classify most of the established religions of the western world, as well as eastern traditions as Confucianism, as Right-Hand Path religions, while regarding some varieties of Vajrayana Buddhism and "alchemical" (as opposed to philosophical) Taoism as members of the Left-Hand Path. The virtue earned by good deeds is the means by which enlightenment may be attained. Others maintain that Mahayana and Vajrayana are purely Right-Hand Path, at least in theory. Theravada Buddhism on the basic level places a high emphasis on correct conventional behaviour in society and observance of precept (for example the patimokkha). On the higher level this basic practice is complemented with a spiritual practice which leads to enlightenment and realization of non-self. Theravada can thus be regarded as a mixture of left and right.
Such classifications are, perhaps inevitably, quite controversial; there are those who see the whole concept of classification between LHP and RHP as a modern invention resulting from excessively dualistic thinking, and therefore inapplicable to true religious traditions, or at the very least to explicitly nondual ones such as Advaita Vedanta, Taoism and Buddhism.

Criticism
The existence of the dichotomy between the Left-Hand Path and the Right-Hand Path is not generally accepted by scholars of religion. Critics of the dichotomy argue that it is derived from a rather limited subset of the world's religions and that it fails to encompass the variety of religious beliefs and practices found throughout the world, and that the terms are too loosely defined to be of much use in formal study and too loaded with pejorative connatations to be useful in ordinary discourse between people holding different religious views. Defenders of the dichotomy reply that the terms may still be useful when it comes to examining the effect that different religions have upon their adheren

Los Angeles Times: Anger Over Cartoons of Muhammad Escalates
Protests erupted in the Muslim world and militants issued threats against Europeans on Thursday in response to the publication in Western media of controversial caricatures of the prophet Muhammad.
Debate over the drawings, which were first published in September by a Danish newspaper, is being seen as a collision between freedom of expression and religious sensitivities in European nations, where Muslim populations have struggled to fit in.
The caricatures have appeared recently in newspapers in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and even Jordan.
Muslims, who consider any depiction of God and the prophets blasphemy, are outraged by the caricatures, one of which shows Muhammad with a bomb as a turban. Another shows the prophet standing on a cloud as he tells a group of suicide bombers that paradise has run out of the virgins said to await martyrs upon their death.
The conflict heated up on multiple fronts Thursday. In the Gaza Strip, masked Palestinians fired weapons into the air as they surrounded an office of the European Union and a French cultural center. Two Palestinian militant groups threatened to retaliate against the newspapers by kidnapping European citizens and targeting churches and European offices.
Thes folks need to learn some sensitivity and TOLERANCE of others. The world does NOT revolve around Muhammad as much as they may WISH it.
A Jordanian weekly that ran the cartoons with a plea to Muslims to “be reasonable” fired its editor, withdrew the edition and faced possible sanction from the government, Associated Press reported.
In Paris, the tabloid France Soir abruptly fired its managing editor for reprinting the caricatures in Wednesday’s edition, the cover of which carried the paper’s own cartoon of Muhammad alongside Christian, Jewish and Buddhist holy figures. “Don’t complain, Muhammad, we’re all being caricatured here,” the Christian God says.
Tunisia and Morocco banned the sale of copies of France Soir.
In Jakarta this morning, Muslims protested in the lobby of a high-rise that houses the Danish Embassy, pelted the building with eggs and burned the Danish flag outside.
Editorialists, political leaders and advocates of press freedom said the Muslim backlash, which has included boycotts, death threats and flag burnings, jeopardized democratic rights.
Certainly the Muslims have the right to protest but to carry it to the extremes of violence is over the top.
And the American/European press cowering to religious extremist demands is disheartening and saddening. A free press is a free press.
Book burning is book burning.

“The reaction in Muslim countries shocks me because it confirms the weight that radical Islam has acquired,” said Patrick Chappatte, a cartoonist quoted in the Swiss newspaper Le Temps. “A real totalitarianism is at work in the world and wants to impose its views not only on Arab Muslims, but on the West. The same way that they veil women, Islamic radicals want to veil cartoons in the press.”
But Muslim leaders accused European media of provoking strife by humiliating Islam. “Freedom of expression cannot be the freedom to lie,” said Dalil Boubakeur, imam of the Mosque of Paris and president of the French Council of the Muslim Faith. “The prophet did not found a terrorist religion, but on the contrary, a religion of peace.”
Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the furor had exacerbated religious tensions.
“Any insult to the holy prophet — peace be upon him — is an insult to more than a billion Muslims,” Karzai said in a statement.
Western leaders responded gingerly. They were mindful that the issue could unleash violence reminiscent of the assassination of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who was killed in 2004 by a Dutch Muslim extremist angered by the filmmaker’s depictions of Islam.
Stay tuned as the Europeans walk the tight rope between freedom of expression and their radical Islamic immigrant communities’ protests this weekend.
