Police received twenty reports about this fellow before he was arrested. Why was anyone concerned? The establishment media a few years ago made a full-court press to convince Americans that “Allahu akbar” was a benign phrase that only greasy Islamophobes could possibly be concerned about.
In the New York Daily News, Zainab Chaudry of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued that non-Muslims shouldn’t “believe the worst” about “Allahu akbar” because Muslims don’t just scream it while murdering non-Muslims, but use it in a variety of contexts. She even offered this chilling advice, certain to get people killed were it ever heeded: “So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it’s in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation.” So stay put, evidently; fleeing would be “Islamophobic.”
On CNN, Omar Suleiman — the imam who prevailed upon Google to alter their search results so as to bury any negative information about Islam — also argued that Muslims say “Allahu akbar” in a variety of contexts, many of them positive. And the New York Times actually tweeted that the phrase “Allahu akbar” had “somehow” become “intertwined with terrorism.”
Somehow! How could this have possibly happened? Could it have anything to do with the thousands of Muslims who have screamed “Allahu akbar” while in the process of murdering or trying to murder infidels?
“The police arrest a man shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ in the streets of Puy-en-Velay,” translated from “Les policiers interpellent un homme en train de crier “Allah Akbar” dans les rues du Puy-en-Velay,” L’Éveil, April 6, 2023 (thanks to Medforth):
An incident on the public highway worried many passers-by on Wednesday morning in Le Puy. A man dressed in black shouted “Allah Akbar”, around 8:30 a.m. at Boulevard du Breuil.
Many Ponots reacted on Wednesday morning after seeing and hearing a man in his thirties screaming “Allah Akbar” in the streets of the city center. Twenty reports were made by telephone to 17 in a very short period of time.
The police managed to locate the man at Place du Martouret, near the town hall of Le Puy. He was arrested with great difficulty, before being taken to the police station.
The individual has been identified. According to our information, he was 29 years old and unknown to the police. He has been living in Le Puy for some time but is not from the Ponote city.
At the time of his arrest, he was making completely incoherent remarks, but was not carrying a weapon. He was not heard by the police about the reason for his screams. Faced with his state of health, a measure of compulsory hospitalization at the psychiatric hospital of Sainte-Marie was taken.
