Arabic is the fastest-growing language in American homes

Thanks to Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton, the world is witnessing the largest hijra in history.

Arabic is the fastest-growing language in American households — and that’s leading the US Census Bureau to explore the tricky task of adjusting its questionnaires to ­accommodate the language’s right-to-left script.

The bureau is using focus groups to explore possible changes to the 2020 census questionnaires for Arabic speakers who are not English-proficient, the Pew Research Center reported Friday.

Arabic is now the seventh-most commonly spoken non-English language in US households. An estimated 1.1 million people ages 5 and older speak Arabic at home, an increase of 29 percent between 2010 and 2014.

The number who speak Spanish at home has grown only 6 percent during the same period.

Of those who speak Arabic at home, 38 percent are not proficient in English, according to census estimates.

That’s just below the 42 percent English proficiency rate among the 39.3 million US residents who speak Spanish at home.

The growth in Arabic is linked to continued immigration from Middle Eastern and North African countries, according to the Pew Research Center.

One major challenge facing census officials is whether to require a response in English and when to allow an Arabic response.

A focus-group study recommended that the address fields require people to use English, because an American address might not be accurately translated into Arabic, according to the Pew Research Center.

Arabic names present another complication — as they can be transliterated into English in different ways because the letters of the Arabic ­alphabet don’t necessarily have direct English equivalents.

For example, the Arabic name Hussein can be transliterated into English at least five additional ways: Hussain, Husein, Husain, Houssain and Houssein.


The census will be the least of the challenges non-Arabic speaking Americans face in the coming decades. Islamic supremacism, sharia and the infamous Arabic shriek of jihad slaughter – allah akbar – this will be the challenge Americans are forced to fight.

  1. Here’s a novel concept.. Whoever comes here LEGALLY of course, must be required to learn the English language. Back in the day, immigrants coming here did so and pledged allegiance to the USA. It worked then and it would work now if we had ‘leaders’ not hell bent on destroying our country.

    • You hit the nail on the head. If the legal newcomers refuse to learn English, they must be forced to return to their countries of origin. Far too often, the immigrants bring the failed ideologies from the countries they escaped. They must choose if they want to be American citizens or be booted out. It’s really that simple. If only our simpleton elected officials could understand this. Trump, the establishment nemesis, is absolutely correct. We want that wall built, we want immigrants to learn English and we need a fail-safe system to vet the newcomers, weeding out dangerous Muslims bent on perpetrating jihad.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
