    Also; pigeonholing Lady Gaga with Dolly Parton? Oh, please. Gaga isn't fit to polish Dollys Grammys.

    Sure Jimbo, except Allahu Akhbar is also an Arabic Christian phrase.......it means God is great.

    What does this have to do with anything?????

    Seems weird that people are being massacred and you're concentrating on a phrase.

    If the guy had've been a white or black pissed off Christian or atheist with a gun who killed a couple of people, it wouldn't have made the news.....Just another nutter losing their shit.

    Terrible. Shocking. Mediocre. Boring.

    Apparently Beyonce wants to do a "country" album.

    Which then comes down to how many people are killed to make it newsworthy.

    Ffs grow a brain.

    That mere 'phrase' has been corrupted by the extremists to use as their calling card spocky

    Why else do you think the leftist media go to such lengths to avoid telling us when the phrase is used in this way?

    That was what the article was saying Jimbo.

    It has been corrupted and become a calling card for terrorists..

    Are you saying that the 'left wing' media are saying this isn't Islamic terrorism?

    Did the article in any way minimise Islamic terrorism as you claim?

    How does that compare with the atrocious right wing 'media' accusing leftists of mass murder?

    I'm saying the left wing media seek to avoid referring to the phrase when reporting terrorist incidents

    CNN will usually say something like 'suspect shouted "God is great" in Arabic'

    As is usually the case, it's not what the media tells you, bit whay they don't want to tell you

    Yeah like the terrorist wasn't Islamic.......

    From the Guardian....different events.....

    "One of the victims was stabbed while the other had her throat slit by the man who is believed to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) at the start of the attack, a source close to the investigation told Agence France-Presse."

    "A man arrested outside Buckingham Palace armed with a 4ft sword repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police struggled to subdue him, Scotland Yard has said."

    "Law enforcement officials have said that as the suspect got out of the truck, he was heard yelling “Allahu Akbar”, the Arabic phrase for “God is great”, according to the New York Times and Associated Press."

    New York Times

    ""The rampage ended when the motorist — whom the police identified as Sayfullo Saipov, 29 — smashed into a school bus, jumped out of his truck and ran up and down the highway waving a pellet gun and paintball gun and shouting “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is great,” before he was shot in the abdomen by the officer. He remained in critical condition on Tuesday evening."

    Washington Post

    "A law enforcement official says that witnesses told police that the man who drove a rented truck onto a bike path in New York City, killing eight people, shouted “allahu akbar.”"

    "Rattling a city that’s been rocked by two large-scale terrorist attacks in less than four months, police in London say a man wielding a four-foot sword and screaming “Allahu akbar” attacked three officers in London on Friday night."

    From CNN - different events.....

    Witnesses: Driver yelled 'Allahu Akbar'

    Sources tell CNN's Shimon Prokupecz that the FBI is investigating the incident that left at least six dead in New York as terrorism.
    Source: CNN

    "The incident is being investigated as terrorism, officials said. Witnesses reported the suspect was yelling "Allahu Akbar," according to four law enforcement sources. The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force is taking over the lead of the investigation."

    "The suspect yelled "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) when he was arrested"


    Yes, you can really see the leftist media are really tryng to hide the fact the attacks were Islamic.

    Because somehow this right wing meme compares to the blatant lies of the Right.

    It's the right wing lie that leftists defend Islamic terrorism.

    The usual disgraceful rhetoric they tell themselves to make themselves feel better.

    Its actually more informative to tell people what it means as it explains the religious sentiment behind the actions.

    There are plenty of examples of leftist media trying to hide inconvenient details Spocky

    Getting the SMH to admit that the police are looking for someone with particular characteristics is like getting teeth pulled

    Feel free to disagree though, I don't particularly care to be honest
