AP translates Fresno shooter’s ‘Allahu Akbar’ to ‘God is great’

associated press

Change the language all you want, AP. Doesn’t change the facts.

From Fox News: The Fresno shooting suspect accused of killing three people on Tuesday shouted “Allahu Akbar” when he was taken into custody by law enforcement, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer – but the Associated Press made an editorial decision to print the translation of his words from Arabic to English: “God is great.”

The Associated Press tweeted on Tuesday afternoon with their translation, despite almost all other news outlets reporting what suspect Kori Ali Muhammad actually said. Their tweet:

Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted “God is great” before killings. https://t.co/rrSOzfEXaB — The Associated Press (@AP) April 18, 2017

The AP responded to Fox News’ request for comment, and said they had deleted the tweet and replaced it with a new one.

The AP acknowledged in their article that Muhammad shouted “God is great” in Arabic. The AP story reads:

Dyer has said Muhammad shouted “God is great!” in Arabic while being arrested and had posted on social media that he dislikes white people. All three victims in Tuesday’s killings were white men, and Muhammad is black.”

The AP is taking heat on Twitter from news outlets, pundits and journalists for the editorializing, with some slamming the AP for downplaying the shooter’s Islamic ties.

  2. This stunt is obviously part of a stratagem and no blunder nor revelation of anything inasmuch as the AP could anticipate with certainty that the other propaganda outlets would run with Muhammad’s actual words in Arabic and that translating them into English would cause the flash reaction it got. As for the AP’s motive, it might be something along the lines of predictive programming; that is, sensationalizing the threat of Islamic terrorism in America by pretending to suppress it.

    Let’s not forget that the AP as well as the MSM are as much a part of America’s deep state as the neocons and CIA, using human interest stories and factual reporting solely as a cover for uncheckable lies and the means of duping us into believing their propaganda is true as well.

  4. I’ve read that “Allahu Akbar” literally means “Allah is greater.” But it is more politically correct to translate it as “God is great.” http://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2015/12/25/allahu-akbar-means-almost-everything-except-establishment-media-says/

  6. ‘Allahu Akbar’ is camel-washer speak for ‘Kill me before I kill you, infidel.”

  7. I am very disappointed with the AP after they have been tossed under the bus by the very people that supported and promoted Islam. I think some AP reporters were even spied on.

  9. Yet another racially-motivated black-on-white racist murder spree—this time in Fresno, California—has confirmed the reality that there are far more murders of whites committed by nonwhites than vice versa—even if the controlled media continually tries to portray otherwise…
