Kudos to AquilaOnline for this blog post.

Scary thing is, at first glance Al-Gebra seemed like a legit terror org… I hate being conditioned like this.

“Algebra” is from the Arabic “al jebr”, which was borrowed via Modern Latin. It means “reunion of broken parts”, and sounds very much like every paper I ever wrote in that Witchcraft.

The word was used in Eng. 15c.-16c. to mean “bone-setting,” probably from the Arabs in Spain.

I Don’t see why it should be anything but obvious that Algebra and terrorism are intrinsically linked.
