The Hell with Islam: China Bans ‘Muhammad’ and ‘Jihad’ as Baby Names in Heavily Muslim Region

I'm beginning to see the United States and China may have more common ground when it comes to fealling with Islamic terrorism that I ever thought.  
NY Times reports the Chinese government, further tightening its grip on Muslims in western China, has prohibited parents from choosing names like “Muhammad,” “Arafat” and “Jihad” for their children.

Officials described the ban, introduced this month, as part of an effort to “curb religious fervor” in the western region of Xinjiang, home to more than 10 million Uighurs, a mostly Muslim minority group.

The government considers Xinjiang a hotbed of Islamic extremism, violence and separatist thought. But many Uighurs say the government’s strict limits on worship and speech are responsible for tensions in the region.

Look for Leftists to be extremely upset at China over this.
