what would have been the word from Mark Twain while watching this presidential primary season ?

dear "dhimmi no more":

If as you say the Wikipedia entry is so grossly incorrect in Arabic,
then why is it left uncorrected ?
Anyone could try to correct it.

Next, is the Arabic word "baraka" of the female or the male gender ?

I'll be glad to read your take on Sen. Obama's first name,
(still an unknown re the original yet undisclosed birth certificate,
but so far we know that "Barry" was used in grade school).
