On October 14, 2013, a three-member Malaysian Court of Appeal unanimously over-ruled a Kuala Lumpur High Court decision in 2009 which had allowed Catholic weekly newspaper The Herald to use ‘Allah’ to refer to the Christian God in its Malay language edition.
The court decision provided the Zionist Mafia another excuse for Islam-bashing while showing their ignorance of their own Judeo-Christian religious scriptures.
The presiding judge, Zawawi Salleh along with Federal Court judge Mohamed Apandi Ali and Appeals Court judge Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim, provided sufficient religious background to support the court’s decision, which, naturally, was ignored by the Zionist-controlled mainstream media.
Judge Zawari said there was potential for ambiguity if Allah was allowed to be used in The Herald.
“If the word Allah is to be employed in the Malay versions of The Herald to refer to God, there will be a risk of misrepresentation of God within Christianity. This is because the Christian concept of God as symbolised by the Trinity is absolutely and completely dissimilar to the concept of Allah in Islam. The potential for confusion is not confined only to Muslims but also to Christians,” said Zawari.
Zawawi also pointed out that the Indonesian, Malay and Middle Eastern Bibles erred by using the word Allah to refer to God in the Bible.
“This Islamic deity called Allah is never found in the Hebrew text of the Bible. It is antithetical to the Biblical God, Jehovah-Elohim,” he said.
There are many other reasons why the English word “God” fails to describe fully the Islamic concept of the Creater of the Universe and everything in it. For example, the Hebrew G-d (Yahweh) or Christinity God (one in 3 and 3 in one) is used as a “male ” and Goddess as a “female” – while Hindus believe in unlimited “gods” and “goddesses”. Contrary to that Allah has no gender. Furthermore, the word “G-d” or “God” has no other attributes than being “the supreme deity” or “the Father”, while Holy Qur’an provides 99 Attribues for Allah.
The Bible’s narrative of prophethood is also corrupted and Westernized. If one visits a synagogue or church, he will notice that all biblical prophets have Euroeans features with European names – even though none of them was born outside the present-day Middle East or spoke English. No Muslim scholar has ever denied the existence of all those biblical prophets. However, there are numerous Judeo-Christian scholars who deny the existence of Jesus.
