Is the God-the father (Jehovah or Yahweh) worshiped by the Judeo-Christian people is the same God whom the Muslims call Allah. If they are the same how? and if they are different then how?

They are the same. God has many names. If you read the quran you will see many texts from the jewish bible which includes the jewish God, which is also the Christian God. All 3 have different beliefs, but the same God.

Yes these three monotheistic faiths have common roots, I'd say that the Christians and Jews are brothers and Muslims their cousins. But history says that these three have fought amongst themselves more than any body else. Christians have mistreated the Jews from the early church to the Holocaust. Muslims Arab nations still cannot accept a Jewish nation in their neighborhood. If the God we worship is the same why can't we tolerate one and another.

Yes, and before that it was the Jews who persecuted the Christians. And in today's world across the globe it is the muslims who persecute the Christians and Jews. We're all one big dysfunctional family. Everyone wants to be the favorite.

Christianity is the right way Allah is Not God sorry People that believe that Jehovah is gods name which we should never call him by that I mean would you call your father by his name ! NO! There is no comparison to a muslims or india or any other country that doesnt study christianity. There is no comparison to there gods and Ours. Jehova is not comparible he is everything and if anyone disagrees or calls on Allah or the Quran then they are completley in the wrong. If I offended anyone Sorry but that is my belief!

Sorry, but the 2 ARE the same God. Allah is just an Arabic word for God (this may or may not be common knowledge, hence your confusion)..so both religions call to 'God', just in their own language. Your viewpoint is kind of like saying French people dont believe in God because they use 'Dieu' instead of the english word 'God'. Which i'm sure you would agree is a little silly Islam, Judaism, and Christianity all believe in God, that doesnt mean that Islam is true/false or that the Quran is corect/not correct (thats beond the scope of this discussion), but that in this particular aspect of "the way" all 3 are right.
