Terror in Mali & the Real Meaning of “Allahu Akbar”

As another Islamic terrorist attack occurred in Mali’s capital of Bamako, where Muslim gunmen attacked a luxury hotel full of foreigners, killing innocents and taking 170 people hostage (see update), reports confirm that the terrorists demanded that hostages recite the Shahada (the Muslim declaration of faith) and that those who were able to do so were allowed to leave the hotel.

The terrorists were also shouting “Allahu Akbar”, which media reports perpetually inform us means “God is great” in Arabic.

But does “Allahu Akbar” really mean “God is great”?

In response to the terrorists’ shouts of “Allahu Akbar” and the media’s “translation” of it for us, The Glazov Gang is running its feature interview with Daniel Greenfield in which he discussed The Real Meaning of ‘Allahu Akbar’, explaining why you should be suspicious of the meaning the media ascribes to the Arabic expression after every Jihadi attack.
