Netherlands: Why not call God Allah?

The simple reason - because one speaks Dutch in the Netherlands. God is Dutch (and English), Allah is Arabic. Arabic is a beautiful language, so why not just switch over completely?


The Bishop of Breda, Tiny Muskens, thinks "Allah" is a beautiful word for God and suggests it from now on. He is aware that using the name "Allah" would be very emotional and therefore he says it must be thought about, prepared and weighed in advance.

However, he is convinced it will happen, whether it be over a century or two. Muskens had worked in Indonesia for eight years and had prayed there to Allah, saying he had called God "Allah" during mass.

Allah is the god of Islam created by Mo. Mo appropriated Jewish and Christian religious stories and put together a pathetic scatology for his new cult, err religion, tieing it to Judeo-Christian, but it was a fraud as was Mo.

This Bishop is a bit wacky, his suggestion will only embolden the Jihadis. I just read that he said a little while ago that Islam had no future because of all the violence. He seems very confused and conflicted.
