The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

Interesting to note:

June 8, 632
One day upon returning from a visit to a cemetery Muhammad became very ill. He suffered for several days with head pain and weakness. Muhammad finally succumbed to his malady around noon on Monday
June 8, 632, in the city of Medina, at the age of sixty-three.

I couldn't retain myself from dropping you a note.
That two people died in the same day?
What does al Qaida has to do with Islam that Muhamad spread?
I think al Qaida is a group of FANATICS, as far as I know, Muhamad did not preach fanaticism nor hatered, he was not a friend of the jews but his followers and himself treated jews better than any other people!
Muhammadian/Moslems follow a strictly lunar calendar by the way, birth and deaths have nothing to do with the christian calendar.
Please, don't be a model media student, if you don't know about a certain subject don't spread unnecessary hatered between noahides (moslems are strictly monotheists) and jewish people by drawing readers's attention to baseless conclusions.
I'd like to follow up, maybe I am wrong after all, maybe we should label others, just like other labeled us.
Is this how we prepare the world for Moshiach?
I am sorry for the stern talk if you felt hurt in anyways.
Have a wonderful Shabbos

I have no hatred to Muslims, besides for those who have acted in the most despicable ways etc.
I merely found it interesting to see that al-zarqawi, who along with his al-qaeda buddies, felt that he was fulfilling Mohamed's will, died on the same day.
When I saw how both things popped up on wikipedia at the same time -it caught my eye. Little more.
Mohamed near the end of his life was not friendly to the Jews under him, though many Jews did well under the Muslims, many more suffered as well. For example: the Almohades, the oppression of the Yeminite Jews and other such things serve as an example -and the two enumerated in the life of the Rambam alone!
As to to your remark that the Muslims follow a purely lunar calender, it is true that the date has little barring to the Gregorian calender, in any event, as a Jew, the Hebrew date would be of greatest importance.
However, as a matter of note, Reb Levik, the Rebbe's father, states that even non-Jewish names and the like have a connection and can be understood in a deeper (Torah) light -this being since everything is in the end hashgacha protis. (a disclaimer, I am in no way trying to say my remark is a fitting subject for such a deeper understanding -as noted above).
Please feel free to follow up, even more so, I ask you -discussion is the whole point of this (and most other blogs).
