Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 06, 2019

Muhammad has long been one of the world's most popular names, but in 2019 -- after years of rising on the charts -- it finally broke through into the domestic top ten (#10) for the first time. On the girl names list, Aaliyah, another name of Arabic origin, also landed at number 10.

It's there because Muslims aren't very creqtive when it comes to names.

Also not helping are ignorant people who think that Muhammad is a Swahili name set their ancestors would have used when their ancestors when their ancestors didn't even speak Swahili.

However, many (perhaps a majority) of the slaves imported from Africa were, in fact, muslims before they were stripped of their religion and languages by the slavers. Muhammad would have been a revered name to them regardless of language.

Sorry but nobody took a religious survey of all those people enslaved by Africans and sold to white people. The limited data we do have shows they were primarily practitioners of shamanism.

Implications of this news?

Muslims will have more and more clout in American politics.

Beginning of the end of the "Jewish lobby".

And the beginning of the end of America's constant and useless wars overseas.

The name Mohamed is not specific to WAHABI or HANFI or SHIA or etc.... all 83 different flavors of Islam accept it. Nor is it Arab or Turkish (who spell it Mehmet sometimes) or Pak or Indonesian... all nations find it acceptable.

And the racists see a hint of an American Caliphate... BOO!!!

LOL

Chill. Drink some lemonade.

Also, "Mohamed" often used when you have like 3 names like some southern hick... Billy Joe Bubba.... Mohamed Aslam Tariq (no, that's not my name). The guy would just be called "Aslam" because the "Mohamed" in front of "Aslam" is so common.

I was lucky enough to speak to a nice Muslim doctor from India earlier this year.

He confirmed my suspicions and said matter-of-factly that most of the people naming their kids Muhammad aren't Muslims they are idiots.

He fears it will become a synonym for Street criminals.

Unless you're going to go to Syria and buy a Yazidi slave girl anyway.

Snoof I seriously doubt what you're saying about Ben Franklin.

He genuinely liked women in every sense of the word and no he did own a pair of slaves he also freed them going on to become an abolitionist.

Why are you so quick to jump. He made an obvious mistake.

Lord knows none of us are guilt free.

The man recognized his error. Let it go and get back to the thread.

Speaking of which: Several years ago I was friends with a family from Palestine. They had 5 children, the first 4 being girls and the last a boy they named Mohammed. The wife told me that every Muslim family had to have at least one boy named Mohammed.

I've often wondered if that was true.

It's a popular name, much like Jesus among Spanish-speaking Christians, but probably more popular than Jesus, since English-speaking Christians don't often name their sons Jesus.

No, it's the opposite.
