  •  Jihad indeed (none)
    I bet his parents are dishonored by his actions; just guessing from the name
    •  Of course! (none)
      After all, the only possible reason for naming a child 'Jihad' would be in hopes that the child would grow up to join extremist groups!

      •  Jihad means "struggle" (none)
        Woman sometimes give their babies that name after a particularly difficult pregnancy or labor.
        •  I know... (none)
          I was being sarcastic. :^) It didn't make sense (to me) for someone to imply that the guy's parents wouldn't be proud of him simply because of his name - which, obviously, doesn't just mean "holy war", despite MSM commentary to the contrary.

          Didn't know about the pregnancy link, though.  Quite interesting.
