Are Allah and God the same?

My basic question is this: Are Allah and God the same? I was taught that they are, and since in Turkish the only translation for God is Allah I really believe they are, but lots of Christians try to tell me differently. What do you think?

Muslims say, "There is no God but God."

Christians believe in one God in three "persons": Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

From the outside, I'd say that God = Allah, Allah = God, but it goes further than that, and I find this a difficult question unless you break it down to this: seek the divine. No matter what you believe right now, if you seek God He will make Himself known to you. Then, no matter what name you use, He will be Lord.

The Christian God and the Muslim Allah stem from the same Tradition. However, each are with their own set of characteristics and ways to salvation. You could technically say that they are the same God, but each religion's understanding of God is very different.
