Liking Terror So Much That You Name Your Kids After It

This from Memri:

ABOUT 50 PARENTS IN A GULF COUNTRY HAVE CALLED THEIR NEWBORN CHILDREN ‘IRHAB,’ WHICH IS THE ARABIC WORD FOR TERRORISM. THE NAME IS USED BOTH AS MUSCULAR AND FEMININE. THE EXCUSE GIVEN FOR THE USE OF THE NAME IS THE INTERPRETATION GIVEN BY OSAMA BIN LADEN ABOUT A VERSE IN THE KORAN: ‘AND YOU SHALL TERRORIZE THE ENEMIES OF ALLAH.’ (AL-ZAMAN, IRAQ, 12/10/03)

Gives new meaning to the phrase “little terrors.”
