what a laugh! :rotfl our flip flop govt. is at it again! (the latest flip flop was the highway toll increase).
just few days ago that botak homey minister said herald is allowed to use ‘allah’ but with conditions, then yesterday suddenly he said had made a mistake. this is not the first time the minister flipped flopped. on this same issue, on 16 jan, i had blog about him going flip flop too.
apparently, our dear home minister was running scared, methink and kow-tow to the malaysian islamic da’wah foundation (yadim) who called on the govt. to withdraw the conditional use of the word ‘allah’ in christian publication. well, not only yadim but other muslim groups too and the extremist, fanatical, bigot mufti of perak. think he was shtting in his pants after the call from all these groups so he don’t mind eat humble pie to admit he made a mistake. what a laugh! 😀
can you believe what the yadim chairman said?
Its chairman Datuk Mohd Nakhaie Ahmad said the government had not acted wisely in allowing the use of the word in Christian publications which he said could anger Muslims not only in the country but also throughout the world.
"anger muslims not only in the country but also throughout the world". excuse me while i go ROTFL.
:] :rotfl 😀 😛 🙂 :8) :]
my dear, dear, dearest nakhaie, who made you the muslim spokesman to speak for all muslms not only in the country but elsewhere? are you so sure this will anger the muslims in our country? all my muslims friends had told me otherwise!
i would have only go LOL if not for the "… throughout the world" remark which pushed me to ROTFL instead. come lah, dearie nakhaie, muslims in other countries are not as fanatic as you (or the likes of your ilks). e.g. in indonesia, all christian publications had been using allah for years and years and years and the indonesian muslims were not a bit angry… now do we hear of the indonesian muslims suddenly converting to christianity after reading the word ‘allah’ in the christian publication.
oh dear i can’t continue anymore as i have severe stomach ache after laughing so much at what nakhaie said… AND also at homey MINIster’s flip flop. my usual mantra, you can find it in the heading already. remember to read the comments at the malaysian insider.
From The Catholic Encyclopedia:The notion of Allah in Arabic theology is substantially the same as that of God among the Jews, and also among the Christians, with the exception of the Trinity, which is positively excluded in the Koran,
The word "Allah" is the perfect description of the "One God" of monotheism for Jews, Christians and Muslims!
Is "Allah" only for Islam and Muslims?
[No! It is for All Three Abrahamic Faiths.]
"Allah" is the same word used by Christian Arabs and Jewish Arabs in their Bible, centuries before Islam came.
‘And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).’
