Have you heard of Syria's official name - It goes as:
"Al jomhuriyya al arabiyya al surriyah al islamiyya"...sounds funny.
If Obama gets re-elected, this is how America would be known as b4 the end of his second term:
"Al Obamiyya al osamiyya al jomhuriyya al arabiyya al amerikiyya al islamiyya"
“I could be wrong.”

[QUOTE who="MRW_83"...sound s funny.
It probably sounds funny because you're too ignorant to understand basic Arabic and too intellectually lazy to even try.
The "al" in between words is just an Arabic article, like the English word "The" or "An."
Jomhuriyya is the Arabic word for "Republic."
Arabiyya and Surriyah are literally the words "Arabia" and "Syria" spelled differently to transliterate the proper Arabic pronunciation, because the Arabic language uses sounds that English doesn't even have.
Islamiyya is the word "Islam," again transliterated for proper pronunciation by English speakers. It's not really part of the actual name of the country, just like "The United States of America, under God" isn't the actual name of The United States.
So your "funny sounding" name translates quite literally to "The Arabic Republic of Syria." Not so different from "The United States of America," is it?
But do continue to mock entire other countries because you're too colossally dense to bother looking into their native language for more than ten seconds. It's wildly entertaining.
You know all those versions of the "Welcome to America - Speak English or get out" slogan you hear tossed around these days?
Welcome to dealing with international politics in the middle east. Learn basic Arabic or shut up and stop making yourself look like an international fool.

Obama ia a muslim. His biological father was a muslim. He has the same ideals as his biological father. Obama attended a muslim school in Indonesia as a young boy...so muslim practices have been instilled in him. Also, he snubs Israel and is on the side of the muslim countries....first President ever to do that. Would you believe that when the Israeli leader came to the US Obama was spending his time with Beyonce' and JZ. He is just a celebrity president not caring about our country. He wants us to fail, so he can put his socialistic, communist, marxist, ideas in place. Many are blind and just don't see it. Do you at least see that he was not concerned about the terrorist attack in Bengazi, calling it a protest because of the video. After pressure for two weeks, he finally admitted that it was a terrorist attack.If he could have gotten away with it, he would have continued to call it a protest. If you saw the debate two nights ago, you would see and hear his lies.

This is the dumbest post ever. If Obama was Muslim he wouldn't be presidents you retards. They have his birth certificate and everything he's not Muslim. Wow, learn your facts. And if he was Muslim he would be out of office by now. But he's not. This status is actually pretty racist. Because he's black he's Muslim? No your just upset that he's a better president that Mitt Romney will ever be. You have to be pretty stupid to think Obama is Muslim.

And just because his father was Muslim doesn't mean he is. He was born in the USA. He's not Muslim. Wow, stupid people.
