I think it would be more productive to take this to a separate Protestant thread. I need to look for an article to post first, but I'm wondering why it should be so surprising that Mohammed's daughter's name is Fatima? It's an ARAB name, the MOORS (Arabs) were in Iberia. Mohammed had about 50 concubines (okay I'm not sure of the number) so he probably exhausted all the Arabic names. My own mother, born in D.C., was named Fatima after my grandpa's sister aunt in Beirut. Zeitun (egypt) I believe is Arabic for olive. An akita is a dog. And?

The prayer for the Moslems is wonderful, but the reason Moslems flock to Fatima is because Jesus (to them Issa or Esau and God said "Esau I have hated") is supposed to come back at the end times and according t them, he's going to slay every Christian who doesn't bow down to Mohammed according to the Moslems. Why should we get excited about that? If Protestants followed a scripture that said that the Pope in the last days is going to kill all Catholics who don't convert to Protestantism, I wonder if you'd all be so excited if Protestants were lining up to visit the Vatican, or would you realize they might be lining up to see you killed (in this hypothetical scenario)? You know how they line up to see stonings and public executions in the Moslem world, well that's the concept here.

Well, I think I'l toss a notion into this fray:

The prayer for the Moslems is wonderful, but the reason Moslems flock to Fatima is because Jesus (to them Issa or Esau and God said "Esau I have hated") is supposed to come back at the end times and according t them, he's going to slay every Christian who doesn't bow down to Mohammed according to the Moslems.

I happen to believe in the rapture of the Church, the chaste bride of Christ, at the end times. The 'slay every Christian' may actually be the source of the great lie the world will believe concerning the sudden snatching away, that the Moslem's 'Esau has disposed of these who would not bow to Mohammed'. Apostasy always has some grain of plausibility in it, a times mostly plausible, but there is always that small bit of leaven that leveneth the whole.
