Besides the personified notion of Satan, Islam views Satan as temptations in the mind and desire to do evil. Iblis is accordingly also a cosmic force, leading humans (and jinn) astray from good and making them to shayāṭīn as well.  But there is still a distinction assumed between the satanic temptations and the murmurings of the lower self ( Nafs ). The lower self as such, wants the person to do a specific task or to fulfill a desire, while the inspirations of Satan wants the person to do evil in general and returns with another suggestion, after the person resisted. 
Hi Again Brother Nathanael. With comment to this article I am aware that the actor that plays George on Seinfeld also did a TV guide cover-shot where he had his hand raised with the two-finger salute to the devil… When they do this with the left hand pointed down it is of course a very telling sign… I also recently saw a Youtube video of the actor that plays Cramer uttering racist remarks and then being basically booed from a comedy club for his superior attitude as a J.. Given this info and looking at Larry David playing the J..,.. I have to finally admit that your thesis is correct. These fools don’t realize that all souls are equal..It’s like the 72 virgins for Moslum suicide bombers… Now as A’calirvoyant’ I see the enregy and I have done so for now close to thirty years, albeit quietly.. My observation of the so-called Holy land is a place where hateful souls swap places each lifetime as God’s Laws of Karma put them back to experience life under the thumb of the one they hate… And finally dear one I’m glad to see you rebuff the fellow that called for nasty things to happen to these very-very deluded souls… We may have different perspectives with me as a Gnostic. But in Jayzu and in spirit I believe we are one…Thanks…Until we meet again.
