Your point?
The point is that if you ever went by "Dave" and later reverted back to your real given name, "David" - it is apparently a sign that you have converted to Judaism. Or, as the case would be, to Islam - because adopting a Muslim name upon conversion is common practice.

That's the best I have been able to discern from this topic at this point...

I know a bunch of guys named Dean. That's Arabic for 'religion'.

I know 2 guys named Faris. That's Arabic for 'horseman' or 'knight'

I know one Haris. That's Arabic for 'guardian'

I know a Jari. That's Arabic for 'beautiful'

None of those guys has any Muslims in their families. Jari's mom thought she would give her son a name with a unique spelling instead of common old Jerry.

And i have a friend whose first name is Karl. His father named him after Karl Marx, but he has never been, or will be, a Communist. I also have a couple of friends whose name is Adolph, but neither of them are Nazis. I have a friend whose nickname is Smitty who's a Democrat. Everyone named John was named after a Jew.
Don't get so hung up on a name. None of us get to pick our name, and there are a lot more names that are common in different cultures that you obviously aren't aware of.

Our President is not a liar. You just don't like him, but that doesn't give you the right make things up.

There have been some doozies.

The Obama wedding date thread, for one.

But, yeah, this one is definitely right up there.

Dean is English
Dean | Name Meaning & Origin | Boy Name Dean | Baby Names World
Haris is English as well
http://www.babycenter.com/baby-names-haris-474085.htm

How many other 'friends' were you going to make up to try and prove your point. Funny , not one person has brought up one prominent person who we would all know ..Hmm.

By your logic a name of Dean Haris would be a fully Arabic name LMAO.. I here there are alot of Dean Haris' rolling around the Middle East.



How many Hussein's do you know that arent Arab/Muslim?

Try and make the perception a reality so the reality doesn't count.

As Romney addressed Obama during the debate, lie so often about something that you hope the lie is eventually taken as truth.

What also about that Fast and Furious?
Um.....I think this thread is about how President Obama MUST be a Muslim because he has a Muslim-sounding middle name and the OP's epic fail.

Why are you trying to change the subject?
