CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper Claims to Be Flummoxed By Oklahoma Beheader's "Hebrew" Pseudonym

Decapitationist Alton Nolan's having assumed the name "Ja'Keem Yisreal" elicited this response:
Sources close to the investigation said Nolen adopted the online persona of “Jah’Keem Yisreal,” a phrase that the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations leaders said has no meaning in the Arabic language. Muslim leaders said it was odd that someone proclaiming themselves as Muslim would adopt a name so close to Hebrew. 
“I can’t imagine any Muslim taking a Hebrew name,” said Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR.
That prompted a sassy infidel to observe:
That’s funny since Ibrahim is an Arabized Hebrew name. Muslims also use Suleiman for Solomon, Daoud for David, Musa for Moses and Yusuf for Joseph. Since Islam borrowed Jewish history, it’s chock full of Hebrew names some of which Muslims use. 
It’s funny how Ibrahim Hooper, another convert to Islam, hasn’t bothered learning much about his religion. 
Isn't it, though?
