Sign of the Times: Halle Berry Pays Tribute to Islamic Arabia

By Debbie Schlussel
First, she disparaged Jews’ noses to Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show.” And now she’s given her kid an Arabic Muslim first name. Yup, Halle Berry named her illegitimate kiddie, Nahla–a Muslim name, which, depending on transliteration from Arabic, means either a drink/sip of water or a bee. Nahla, incidentally, is also the first name of Mrs. Sami Al-Arian, wife to the founder and worldwide chief of Islamic Jihad, now in federal prison. And it’s the name of a champion race horse in Saudi Arabia.
All things Arabic and Muslim . . . it’s the new black. (And, no, by that, I don’t mean skin color.)

Is it possible, since Halle Berry is not the brightest light on the circuit, that she is not aware that she named her child a Muslim name? Kind of like ghetto kids going around with names like Latrine and Placenta?

She is a witch that thinks she’s a godess after all. She consults dead Dorthy Dandrige. What do you expect? She’s kinda of a airhead. Didn’t Michael Jackson become a Muslim too. Islam is the religion of choice when you have chip shoulder, angry and you can’t have your way.

I tend to agree with Lexi – you’re talking about Halle Berry after all. Perhaps she was seeking a name that had some African context . . .for instance, Disney’s “Nala” of Lion King fame.

Lexi has a good point, but on the other hand, Berry had to come up with the name from somewhere, so you never know.
There’s a silver lining though — at least the taxpayers won’t have to foot the bill for this kid.

Berry is not an airhead but you are a stupid twit to the extreme. What has Berry ever done to be called a witch?
Berry is a lot brighter than you give her credit for; she may be brighter than you. I’m sure she knowingly gave her baby girl an authentic Muslim name. What’s it to you?

Discussed on IsraellyCool, where I and others commented that there’s actually a lot of Hebrew here, whether Berry intended it or not:

Yup. And as israellycool says, poor kid`s gonna grow up hating itself and that should complete it – muslim hating jews.

She is just a typical Hollywood moron who has horse blinders on and cant see the real truth when its right in front of their noses. She deserves to have gotten smacked around by David Justice.

RadicalRight: The moron Berry must have done something really annoying to drive David Justice to smack her.
Blitzer: You can say a lot about Halle Berry but no one, NO ONE, calls her intelligent. She won an Oscar, she has an genius plastic surgeon, but intelligent? No.

Another (Half)Black in Show Business: allowed to make mainstream movies,and go on every talk show,yet,always ready to say and do anything Politically Correct(especially, anti-White/West) and support any Pro-Black/Muslim cause, and get away scot-free with it,for no legitemate reason ,other than because she’s (Half)Black – what are the odds?

OldSchoolW on March 20, 2008 at 12:13 pm

Who cares if she gave her kid a Muslim name? Seriously, dont you fools have abortion clinics to protest or something?

secular_progrogressive on March 20, 2008 at 6:51 pm

Well I just don’t give a shit about halle berry. She was never a good actress, and she’s overrated. So I don’t care ether that she wants to name her child after an islamofacist.

Squirrel3D on March 20, 2008 at 7:39 pm

So what? It is a pretty sounding name with a cute meaning (honeybee) and the kid has a Hebrew middle name. I’m sure Halle wanted to be exotic in namimg the child. As to this kid, who will be inarguably beautiful and wealthy, I doubt she’ll ever end up hating herself, as the privilieged rarely do. I tell you this, there are plenty of awful people in history who’ve shared by first name, and I’m pretty dammed pleased with myself, no hatred here (although I am at least glad my parents didn’t choose Adolf or Pol Pot, in which case I’d hate my name if not myself)

I have already chosen the muslim name naila for my child.. naila meaning to receive what she wants because she deserves it. This is very close to Nahla. what is wrong with her giving her child an arabic name??.. I’m Irish but moved over to Dubai with my parents so this name has alot of meaning. x.x.x

[HA! Yet another village idiot pandering to Muslims. You are the problem. Not the solution. Get a brain, Ciaha. DS

Halle Berry should study Islam from authentic traditional sources. She is drawn to the beauty of Islam as a lot western stars ate like Niam Leeson. Such a pull is a testimony of the truth- Islam is a true religion that suffices for people. She is drawn to the truth and acceptance of Islam is testifying that There is no God but Allah anduhmad is His Messenger

Bilal akbar on February 11, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Sorry it should be to testify There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger
