How do you say god is great in Arabic pic.twitter.com/dVnweEPMCn— Pardes Seleh (@PardesSeleh) October 31, 2017
Not just on Twitter—the Daily Caller has a whole article on it:
"suspect was yelling "God is great" in Arabic" - thanks for inventing this careful dodge, AP. pic.twitter.com/SEzkkooq13— BT (@back_ttys) October 31, 2017
Apparently it is an AP invention—in an article titled “Allahu Akbar” Gunman Not An Arab, But A Black Guy Who Hates Whites, about a Disgruntled Minority shooting in Fresno, I noted an AP Tweet that said "Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted "God is great" before killings. "That particular Tweet has been deleted but Fox News picked it up.[AP translates Fresno shooter's 'Allahu Akbar' to 'God is great', April 19, 2017]Update: “‘Allahu akbar’ doesn’t mean what media says it means.” according to Robert Spencer. He says that it means “Allah is greater,” meaning Allah Is Greater Than Your God or Government." Islam is not a religion of peace, and it doesn't do ecumenism.
The New York City attacker didn't shout 'God is great' in Arabic, he shouted 'Allahu akbar.' https://t.co/nZZB0z82KW— Rachel Stoltzfoos (@RachelStoltz) October 31, 2017
