Examining Allah God expressed in Koran

In the Koran, Allah is named as God and endowed with all the qualities of perfection as the I am is int the Torah written many thousand of years before, and then the Father in the New Testament. He is knowing, strong, hearing, seeing, wise, independent of all needs, and benevolent. These are not, His only qualities, however, as He is also often imperious and wrathful, and sometimes even sly; in verse 30 of Sura 8, He is "the best of the schemers." He is gifted with all the evil desires of committing atrocities on his lesser favored people using his favorite followers to do the dirty work claiming he is with them through their faith they will see him. These attributes are not mutually compatible. If God is self-subsistent and intrinsically perfect, how can He be susceptible to accidents such as anger and desire for revenge? Why should He ever become angry when His strength is absolute and anger is an involuntary mood induced by weakness? Bible says Wisdom begins with Fear, While people gifted Reason says Wisdom begins with Wonder. Time for a peaceful revolution in todays Religion as our America Forefathers hoped for, Deism. "The clergy...believe that any portion of power confided to me will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly: for I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." -- Thomas Jefferson
