Heartwarming, If Problematic

The AP is running a beautiful story about how an American sodlier adopted a special needs Iraqi orphan.

The only problem now is protecting the child, who lives with his adoptive dad in Wisconsin, from Islamic extremists who decide to take issue with his name. (He named himself Ala'a, which means "close to God." Which has to be blasphemous or something, right?)
Let's hope Santa doesn't bring the kid a teddy bear.
