      Sometimes I feel like there are four or five first and second names that get used for 90% of Muslim men.


      Also, not only is this guy a scumbag, but I'm also very pleased that all he managed to do is blow up a bin and break a few windows. What a hopeless idiot.

      In fairness, look at a country like Cyprus, where there's only like 5 names for men and they rotate on a first name/middle name cycle. George, Andrew, Michael, Chris. Your get named George Andrew, you name your son Andrew George, he names his son George Andrew and so on.
