    That's really a general election concern since the majority of the Republican primary voters support banning Muslims from entering the U.S. Ironically, notice who is not attending this event.

    Obviously something only an American would suggest and to be naive enough to think that the Bible was originally written in English.

    Simon Peter--Aramaic--Simon (Shim'on)--means God has heard--Peter (Cephas/Kephas) means rock
    Andrew--A GREEK name--means Adam, man, manly--He's Peter's brother
    John--Aramaic/Hebrew--(Yochanan)--means God is gracious
    James/Jacob--Aramaic--(Ya'aqov)--means to follow, heel
    Thomas--Aramaic--(Tau'ma)--means twin
    Matthew--Aramaic--(Mattityahu)--means gift of God
    Simon the Cananaean--Aramaic--means the zealot or jealous one
    Philip--A GREEK name--means lover/friend of horses
    Bartholomew--Aramaic--means son of farmer/furrow/hill (He was also known as Nathanael)
    Judas Iscariot--Aramaic--(Yehuda)--means praised one
    James the younger--Aramaic--(Ya'aqov) means to follow, heel
    Matthias(chosen after Judas)--Aramaic--(Matityahu)variant of Matthew--means gift of God
    Thaddaeus--Aramaic--means heart--brother of James

    you don't generally translate names.

    Juan did not become John just because I crossed the border ;)
    would you translate Hussein?

    Many names, especially Christian names, have shifted over time.

    For instance, the name Paul originally comes from the Latin Paulus, but it has shifted to Pavel or Pasha in Russian, Pawl in Cornish, Pablo in Spanish, and Paolino in Italian.

    Generally, you don't change a single person's name, but after 1,000 years of cultural acceptance, almost any word will shift in its pronunciation and spelling.

    So, here we see that the names of the Apostles, added into the Bible in c. 185 had shifted.

    A good example, the book of Matthew (or ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ) was originally written in Greek.
