@yoel, see here for why that would most likely not apply in this case.

comment Why is the Lubavitch custom to have short Peoth?
@SethJ Wild speculation: If I'm not mistaken, this sketch was done by a non-Jewish artist while the Alter Rebbe was imprisoned. It's possible that he did not have access to a barber for a while, or that he didn't trust the prison barber to touch his peyos. Also, it's possible that, as Alex said, the artist (intentionally or unintentionally) drew his peyos wrong.

You refer to someone that does believe in G-d and the Written Torah, just not the Oral Torah?

Cast 5th reopen vote, as @ShmuelBrill's edit makes it acceptable, imo.

comment why create non kosher animals?
The premise of this question is that everything G-d creates has a purpose. Unless you'd like to challenge that premise from a Jewish perspective, this answer does not really address the question. Alternatively, if you can find a Jewish source for "As pets", then that might work.

@Jim, Yes, horses and camels are not kosher. Muslims do not keep the laws of kosher.

comment Performing miracles with Hashem's Name
Also, it's a little bit difficult to say that he used a Shem Hashem in a different way than saying it, because the Midrash Tanchuma only learns out that a Shem was used at all because of the word "say" in the pasuk.
