"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)

Actually no. The God of Mohammed was not the Judeo-Christian God Yahweh, but the ancient hybrid Assyrio-Babylonian Moon god called Sin. In pagan pre-Islamic Mecca at the Kaa'ba the chief diety (along with 360 other pagan dieties) Sin was known as Hubal (who is mentioned also in the Qur'an). As each Arabian town had their own local chief god at their very own pagan Kaa'bas (there were more than just one Kaa'ba), these gods were known simply to the locals in these towns as Al-ilah (the god). All Mohammed did when creating his monotheistic religion based on all other pre-existing religions was tear down all the other pagan gods worshipped at the Kaa'ba (yet strangly he kept the black meteotite in place still to worship) and re-named Hubal (aka Sin) with the shortened name of Allah (god) from shortening the older local name for local chief dieties of Al-ilah (the god). Thus the chain from the moon god Sin/Hubal/Ali-ilah/Allah becomes complete.
As much as Mohammed wanted Allah to be seen as the same god as the Jews & the Christians, the truth when one looks back into Mohammeds own times is that Allah is not the same as Yahweh. And this is further clear when one looks at the religion that Allah instructed Mohammed to form, & the character of the prophet that Allah chose for this new religion.
