| Newsweek reports sarcastic explanation of “Allahu akbar” as “a message of love” as if it were serious
| Thursday, July 19, 2018
Jihad Watch : “Dear Richard,” Professor Gad Saad remarked. “Arabic is my mother
When properly translated, ‘Allahu Akbar’ means ‘We love all
people but hold a special fondness for Jews, women, and gays.’ Don’t
worry. It’s a message of love, tolerance, and liberalism.”
Gad was being sarcastic, but Newsweek’s intrepid reporter Benjamin
Fearnow reports his words as if they were evidence of what he calls “the
auditory affability of azaan.” Any fool could see that Gad’s
statement was sarcastic, and the incongruity between the idea that
“Allahu akbar” means “We love all people but hold a special fondness for
Jews, women, and gays” and the many jihad mass murderers who have
screamed “Allahu akbar” as they were killing people ought to have set
off alarm bells in Fearnow’s “mind,” such that at very least he could
have done some research or asked some questions, but Gad’s statement
confirmed his Leftist biases about how Islam is benign and Muslims are
always and everywhere victims, and so for today’s “journalism” that was
confirmation enough. “Richard Dawkins Accused of Bigotry Over ‘Allahu Akhbar’ Tweet.
Prompting Atheist Debate on Islam,” by Benjamin Fearnow, Newsweek, July 17, 2018: Twitter user rebuked that opinion, positing, “A phobia is an ‘irrational
fear of something.’ The word Islamophobia doesn’t make sense.
Islamophobia is a word created to silence criticism of Islam.”
