Have other people noticed that the Qur'an is listed here as being by Allah, whereas the Bible is by "Anonymous"? _________________________________________ Since I posted this review, the entry has been changed, and the Qur'an is now also listed as being by "Anonymous"! My impression is that the Muslims and the Infidels are pretty evenly matched here. _________________________________________ Mere days later, and now we're back to "Anonymous"! _________________________________________ In a surprise move, the author has now been changed yet again to 'ALLAH "the creator" (As believed in Islam)'. He/she has written a whole lot more books than Allah, but also lacks fans. _________________________________________ The Infidels, with their characteristic rapier wit, have changed the author back to "Anonymous". _________________________________________ The Muslims score again with "ALLAH" (all caps), who has also written Study the Noble Qur'an Word-for-Word Volume 2 and Study the Noble Qur'an Word-for-Word Volume 3. Okay, Infidels, let's see if you can change the author to something that's not yet another "Anonymous". A few days later, and "Anonymous" is back. This time, I found He was only the author of the Qur'an and had two fans, Nabila and Tarek. Notgettingenough, whose opinions I greatly respect, felt that it was inappropriate for me to be a fan of Allah. That's "Allah" in Arabic script for all you people who can't be bothered to check it on Google Translate. ! _________________________________________ Without waiting for the Infidels to reply, the Muslims score again with " ". _________________________________________ The Infidels refuse to admit defeat, and come back for the ninth time (I counted) with the single move they know how to make. _________________________________________ After 40 days of inactivity (significant or what?) the Muslims strike back with another "Allah". I suspect that the move is deeper than it looks, since His new homepage contains a long quote in Arabic referring to several passages in the Qur'an. _________________________________________ A little more than a day later, it's "Anonymous" again. I think the Infidels have a home side advantage here, which makes me admire the brave and resourceful Muslim hackers all the more. _________________________________________ "Allah" has returned, and this time after only 21 days away! _________________________________________ The pattern from last time repeats: "Allah" lasts less than a day, and is quickly set back to "Anonymous". The romantic in me wants the exciting, creative Muslims to win, but the facts are more than obvious: however they've managed it, the grimly humorless Infidels have taken their game to a new level. Muslims, you need to figure out what the Infidels are doing and stop them. _________________________________________ Incredible but true: the Infidels have finally come up with a new idea! _________________________________________ An hour after the post above, Abbey and Amritorupa swear that the author was briefly changed to "A Nonny Mouse" - but it only lasted a few minutes before reverting to Allah. I have consulted the Book of Revelation, but all I can find is 22:10:And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.I suppose that may be a warning against blocking changes to authorship attributions on Goodreads, but I'm not at all sure. _________________________________________ Yesterday, I started reading Richard Burton's translation of the Arabian Nights, and this morning I see that Allah has returned! _________________________________________ The Muslims are having a good week, and Allah (the most merciful, the most magnificent) is now in correct Arabic script again! _________________________________________ Allah has returned to Goodreads, and has yet again reorganized His homepage! _________________________________________ And the new author is A... While I was asleep, the author was first changed to " " by Wafa, and then to "Allah " by Anwaar. _________________________________________ An hour later, it's briefly flipped back to "Anonymous" before changing yet again to "' aka Allah", and we're now up to 89 pages of edits. Since it'll probably change even before I've finished posting, here's a screenshot I saved from the current version of Allah's Homepage: _________________________________________ Back to Anonymous. Though now I don't know who to root for, since it appears that some Infidels have started ironically supporting Allah. The Infidels once again change the author to Anonymous, but Islam's ever-vigilant cyberwarriors immediately change it back, even using "Allah Almighty" to show that they, at least, possess imagination and a sense of fun. _________________________________________ Anonymous returns, but with an interesting new twist: he (He?) is now credited as "Speaker".
IF YOU FOLLOW THE ISLAMIC FAITH AND GET OFFENDED WHEN YOUR HOLY BOOK (AND RELIGION) RECEIVES CRITICISM READ NO FURTHER! Your comments clearly shows the world that you have actually read nothing at all: not the review in question, nor have you actually read and understood the content of the Quran, a book you profess to call sacred. Go write your own review instead of whining about my opinion of a book I have read. Volumes can be written about this book, but now I just want to ask only one question about this particular work of literature (fiction): How can a book that: 1) legitimise violence against women, 2) murder and persecute "infidels"/people of different faith, and 3) encourage sex with children ever get a 4.32 rating on GoodReads? ******************************************* *EDIT 12/12/2012* I have received a lot of personal attacks and insults (which have been both flagged and reported to GoodReads) because of my above claim, by people who obviously feel that they need to protect their faith. After some research I have found the actual text in the Quran that proves that it does encourage sex with prepubescent girls (a.ka. Language sources: http://www.islamawakened.com/Quran/65... Source: http://www.islamicstudies.info/tafhee...# I will refrain from commenting further and let the above speak for itself and encourage everyone who has read this book to re-read it again and write your own review. EDIT: 20/02/2013 For those of you who might still doubt the validity of the claim that Islam condones paedophilia and worships a paedophile, I would like to draw your attention to the second most important book in Islam after the Quran: The Translation of the Meanings of Sahih Al-Bukhari - Arabic-English. In particular I would like to draw your attention to Sahih Bukhari 5.236: ...and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old... For those who are still in denial and claim that Aisha entered an early puberty - clearly the below passages clearly state that she was NOT: Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151 Narrated 'Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for 'Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13) Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.
