1. Common Names
DTorres ,   NYC USA   (11.25.12)
Whatever happened to names like Joseph, Mary, Ellen, Thomas? Aren't they easier to pronounce?
2. This might sound unfajr...but with a name like
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (11.25.12)
that they should be barred from entering Israel..unless they denounce their parents.
3. here are some other ideas:
Ilana   (11.25.12)
Iron, Dome, Elta Rafael IDF IAF
zionist forever   (11.25.12)
5. baby names
Chris ,   CA USA   (11.25.12)
Perhaps this will be accompanied by more photos of babies dressed in red head bands and baby sized suicide vests - suitable for sending to the extended family. In the meantime, Hamas and Iran will be stocking up weapons for the next time they wish to provoke a response. After they get more weapons, we'll see if they take time/money to help the Gazans repair damage (before winter sets in) after provoking a response this time.
6. Why
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.25.12)
do we have to have articles like this on a Jewish news website?
7. What kind of mother
John ,   NYC, USA   (11.25.12)
would want her child to carry rockets? Why not simply wish that her son will live in an age of peace?
8. Religion of peace of course
9. I guess Fajir is better than.....
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (11.25.12)
"Broken Rubber" or" two bears humping?"
10. Quandry
Carlos Nells ,   Nipomo USA   (11.25.12)
Last week the media told us that the average Palestinian just wanted peace and to co exist with respect. Now, this week, they name their offspring the names of missles that kill other civilians. There's something that stinks about the spin/news we get.
11. Imagine this...
jeff ,   tlv   (11.25.12)
we intercept a call that says fjar was just delivered, 9lbs, it took 24 hours of labor and its finally here or it all started with this guy placing a small missile in a dirty hole, 9 months later, a fjar shows up
12. Why!!???
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (11.26.12)
If Hamas thinks itself so powerful and Hezbollah thinks it 10,000 missiles are enough why do they not attack but instead make stupid statements and name babies after their rockets that could not hit the broadside of a barn. In their radical Islamic ignorance they must think that maybe next time they will fly the babies at Israel.
13. bad communication..
Chris ,   CA USA   (11.25.12)
[about baby named Fajr] "He would carry the rockets whose names he bears so as to free Palestine from Israeli occupation." These parents must not have gotten the memo saying that Israel left Gaza 7 years ago.
14. nameing of children
pro israel & pal sts ,   NYCity NY   (11.26.12)
that maniac Hitler had the same thing going - he encouraged his people to name their kids after the german soldiers who were killed.
15. No cure for stupid (nm)
hmp49 ,   Asheville NC USA   (11.26.12)
16. it is just show
roi ,   holon, israel   (11.26.12)
that the resisents of Gaza strip are not smart enoght... instead of fighting with Hamas regime who broght the wars and the blockade.. they admire it.. now the different between Gaza and Ramalla looks huge like it never was
17. #14
MR   (11.26.12)
Still, I've never heard of a German called V2.
18. A tribute to all they hold dear...
Riva ,   Israel   (11.26.12)
They should try out a few other names that represent their values like murder, terrorism, distruction...\ ah, what beautiful names for them!
19. Ahhhhh how sweet
Haim ,   TA   (11.26.12)
20. IS THIS REALLY NEWS? Come on Ynet
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (11.26.12)
You can do better than this. I'm going to call my toilet Haniyeh. Does that really matter?
21. Fajr is also the name of the Islamic morning prayer.
Jake ,   USA   (11.26.12)
22. #12 What would you prefer?
BDS   (11.26.12)
That another nation would supply the Gazans with $3,3billion of smart missiles per year, that could not only hit the side of a kibbutz barn, but take out the whole kibbutz already?? I would!
23. What's in a name?
BDS   (11.26.12)
By far, the funniest names I have ever seen anybody called are jewish names. I would print some, but I know the censors would never print them. I love Shlomo and Shmule!
24. I'm going to name my next kid "Precision Guided Munition"
Pale Horse ,   Wormwood   (11.26.12)
In honor of the one that took out Jabari.
25. Good for you
David ,   On this planet   (11.26.12)
You can name your children any name you want.Just make sure they play nice on their side of the fence. otherwise you know what will happen
26. To: No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.26.12)
Shlomo is the Hebrew name for Solomon, the great king. Shmuel is the Hebrew name for Samuel, the judge. They are Biblical names. They have also found their way into usage which transcend religions and ethnic groups. Now -- BDS -- that's a fairly absurd name. I bet you are called BS for short That would be most appropriate.
27. My next baby
My next child I will call him Ahmad Yassin
28. #26 Sarah B
No, but I thought that that was what the "B" in your name stood for, Sweetie??
29. I will call my next child "Dear Balak"
ahmad Cohen ,   Ibn Mousa HaLevy   (11.26.12)
30. To: No. 28
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.26.12)
Well, you thought wrong. I suspect that happens to you rather a great deal, so it cannot possibly come as all that much of a surprise .... But at least I have a name. Which is more than can be said for you -- quite the inferiority complex you have there, sweetie.
