Who thought Hurricane naming would cause such a political controversy. Or even a possible religious war. For those who know their Biblical history Isaac and Ishmael were brothers. Isaac is considered one of the Fathers of Judaism, and Ishmael one of the Fathers of Islam. So the Moslems (or Muslims, whichever is politically correct) are upset a Jewish (or “Jew”) name was picked for a Hurricane and not a Moslem (or Muslim) name.
The Moslems feel discriminated against. They feel it should be called Hurricane Ishmael. The Jews are upset that the name is Isaac, because a Hurricane is a bad thing and they feel picking the name Isaac is an act of anti-semitism.
So the name is now being changed to Ichabod, but now fans of “Sleepy Hollow” are pissed off. Oh well….
