Re: Jihad using fire?
In my generation, you'd often have a friend with a grandparent or an older person who spoke little if any English. My grandmother came over when she was 13 but when excited, she'd lapse into German although she did speak English. My mom and I shared the same name and after she was gone, she'd often forget that I was a granddaughter and talk to me in German as she probably did my mom. I certainly had enough Italian friends where the parents, if they spoke English, it was broken. Among themselves they'd chat in Italian. Same with my closest friends who were born in Italy. They speak fluent English otherwise but some things die hard.
