Yahweh is Triune, but Allah is not

Can you prove the Trinity in 200 words or less?  Nathan Busenitz gave it a go at Cripplegate, and it's worth the read for those needing fast facts.

On a related note, some folks were asking if the God of the Bible and Allah are the same.  The question of the Trinity is proof enough that they are different deities.  The Qur'an explicitly denies the Trinity:
  • O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs” (4:171).
  • Say, "He is Allah, [who is] One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, nor is there to Him any equivalent” (112:1-4).
Of course, the Bible is just as clear in 1 John 2:23:
No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.
