The New York Times recently tweeted that the Muslim phrase that translates to “God is good” has “somehow” been linked to terrorist attacks. Hmm, and why is that now?
Glenn talked about the phrase "Allahu akbar" and what it means for ordinary Muslims in everyday life vs. why it’s associated with terrorism because we’ve seen so many terrorists cry out the phrase before or during an attack.
“[Muslims] literally say it all the time, and in most cases, it’s a really nice sentiment,” Glenn said.
The problem is that crying out "Allahu akbar" has become a pattern with terrorists; it hasn’t been used as a rallying cry in an isolated attack or just one case. If we lived in a world where Christian terrorists were murdering people in brutal attacks, wouldn’t “Jesus is my Lord and Savior” or a similar phrase also be associated with fear?
