James, I merely said that Allah was the same as God. Your comparing Mohammed and Jesus. Mohammed is not Allah!
Irkim, James' post does not address the issue of God being the same as Allah. It discusses the differences of the faiths (specifically the path to salvation in Christianity but God is the same God that Muslims call Allah.
Irkim, and USA Girl Allah is the God of Abraham. In fact Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all considered "Abrahamic" religions.
Reference in the Christian Bible to Abraham can be found in the book of Genesis. Paul referred to him Galatians 3:16 as an example of salvation by faith.
Abraham is considered the founding father of all three religions and Christianity and Judaism consider themselves descended from his second son Isaac. Islam considers itself descended from his first son Ishmael.
It seems to me most of the posters above didn't get the message Mr. Dunn was seeking to convey.
I am also what religion most of these posters hold as their faith. Jesus' Sermon on the Mount gives us Christians clear guidance in this matter. Jews and Christians are also told to live by the Great Commandment.
It seems we have a lot of posters who can Google "facts" (word used very loosely) about Islam but in the process forget the teaching of their own religion.

FACT: The CONSERVATIVE Prime Minister of the United Kingdom HAS raised taxes. Value Added Tax from 17.5% to 20%, Capital Gains increased to 28% to protect the National Health Service. (BBC News 9/22/10)
Can we please have some honesty from those opposed to healthcare reform? Can we have some real CONSERVATIVES in this country?
Do you have a source for the story of Wihelm Bucher?
The library should keep the Pilot in the fiction section. The federal budget runs from October 1 every year. There is no such May 15 deadline. In past under Speaker Gingrich Congress missed the October 1 deadline and had to pass a " continuing resolution" to keep the government running for a period under the previous year budget. It was done under Speaker Gingrich, Speaker Hastert when I worked for the US House. I believe Speaker Pelosi may have used it as well but don't know first hand.
It is sad that Mr. Diefendorf chooses to show his lack of basic civics as I learned the Federal Budget year in 9th Grade.
SANDHILLSK9, what law requires us to carry ID at all times?
Does anyone realize your comparing an industry to a sector. Manufacturing is not the only private sector jobs. Manufacturing jobs are down because Chinese, Indian and other developing countries will make things at pennies on the dollar. The private employers like Wally World and other bottom line retailers have moved those jobs out of this area.
As long as we have letters comparing apples to oranges the jobs will continue to leave because people won't address the real problem. Instead of whining about the government we should be hitting retailers at the bottom line until they buy American..
