There are many Muslim families in Israel. Most are calling their boys Mohammed whereas the Jewish and Christian families in Israel call their boys varied names not just Isaac or Peter.

The only thing depressing about it was how obvious (not to mention ironic) it was after I'd failed to get it. David - fail; Benjamin - fail, etc.

I'd remove the 'apostle' part from the hint - dont think it's wrong but I think it can mislead into thinking the answer is one of the 12 apostles

He is often referred to as, "The Apostle Paul". The word means "sent one" and Paul (and others) considered himself to be sent to preach to the Gentiles. Matthias was appointed to fill the vacancy left by Judas in the original twelve, and is sometimes called the 13th apostle. Others have been referred to as apostles in the New Testament as well, including Barnabas, Silas, Titus, Timothy, and others.

I think that there are two different interpretations of this question, namely, taking in Syrian refugees, does that mean they are assimilated into Turkey's infrastructure i.e. , welfare, education, health, housing etc. or does it mean they are entering over the border and then moving on to other countries?

It's good that it accepts Lebanon. Lebanon has been accepting Syrian refugees for a long time, longer than the Syrian civil war, and I'm guessing it's an allowable answer because the numbers are on par.

how about Scattergories for a game with a 20 sided die?

Though Scattergories does use a 20-sided die, it is almost never referred to as such. I hadn't even realized until you said it that the Scattergories die has 20 sides, and I've played Scattergories dozens of times. Whereas in D&D, the 20-sided die is referred to so frequently that "d20" has become a commonly-used shorthand for it.

why do you accept pyramid for the answer to the pharoahs tomb? That is such a generic answer that anyone can just guess a pyramid because that is what is assocoiated with egypt and pharoahs. However, the The Great Pyramid f Giza is quite specific and should be the only acceptable answer. Many other pharohs were also encapsulated in pyramids. Only one is in the GPofG.

Cholesterol is not quite correct, it is a sterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) transport cholesterol in the bloodstream, so 'protein' and 'lipoprotein' should be correct answers
