Piers shows off his knowledge of Arabic names

I was looking at the Daily Telegraph website just now and thought I’d reqard myself with some comic relief. So I clicked onto Piers Akerman’s column.

Seriously, anyone with even an elementary knowledge of Arabic would have laughed at Piers’ attempts to manufacture fake Arabic names for David Hicks. Akerman has obviously set out to generate hatred toward Hicks by playing the sectarian card. Instead, Akerman has again made a complete fool of himself and his newspaper.

This is seriously funny stuff. According to Piers, David Hicks adopted any number of the following names:

#Abu Muslim Australia
#Abu Muslim Astrailii
#Abu Muslim Philippine
#Muhammad Dawood

Why on earth would an Anglo-Aussie from Adelaide declare himself to be a Filipino?

Piers, I think the time has come for you to consider retirement.
