Posted on 10/21/2011 7:31:11 PM PDT by The_Obama_Gerbil

The 127 versions of the spelling of Ghadaffi has been a mystery ever since he became the Libyan Dictator. Today you could read 100 Stories of the long awaited capture/killing and you will probably see 50 different spellings of Kadaffi. So lets see if anyone out there can decipher the actual spelling of Qadaffi, Khadaffi, or Ghadaffi? You have to wonder what how it will be spelled on his gravestone. Most likely the Wrong Spelling !

Actually, I’ve read that this can be an advantage for some A-rabs. It can be difficult for the authorities to keep track of you if there are a zillion different ways to spell your name.

Here's my guess:

مُعَمَّر القَذَّافِي‎

anything in English is just a transliteration rather than a spelling.

The only correct spelling of his name occurs in the Arabic language. All the rest is transliteration into other languages.

Something about that Arabic alphabet just looks wrong to me. Even as a kid, I never liked the look of it; it looked somehow inherently wicked. Is that visceral reaction wrong . . . ?

Don’t worry about their language; beware their religion instead.

Not all Arabs or people that use Arabic are Muslims. Our Christian brothers in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, etc. use Arabic. Aramaic, the language of Christ, looks like a mix of Arabic and Hebrew.

That was my first joke when he was killed. Now we’ll never get a definitive spelling of his name!

In the late 70s or early 80s, Saturday Night Live had a weekend update story about his name, and they ran a graphic with hundreds of possible spellings.

I wonder whether Tolkien used Arabic as part of his inspiration for pure evil.
