WorldNetDaily: Did Jesus actually reveal name of the 'antichrist'?

This is currently the top story on WND. One guess who the "antichrist" is. Barack Obama. The story, with a cool video, decodes the biblical passage: "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." (Luke 10:18)

Supposedly the Hebrew word for lightning is "baraq" and the Hebrew word for "heaven" can also be rendered as "the heights" or "high places." And the word in Hebrew is "bamaw". Spoken together the words would be "baraq u bamaw" or "baraq o bamaw."

This is beyond crazy. Which means it is all over the internet. In actual fact the name "barack" is etymologically related to the Hebrew word for "blessing" which is "barukh". Also Aramaic is not "the most ancient form of Hebrew" although the two languages are related as are French and Latin.

Phonetically pronounced however, the hebrew 'Baraq' is closer than the hebrew 'baruch.'
