Kori Ali Muhammad, a Muslim, used a gun today to murder three white people in cold blood in Fresno, California and shouted “Allahu Akbar”* (“Allah is greatest” in Arabic) while being taken into custody. “Allahu Akbar” is what jihadists scream before they kill their victims.
Muhammad’s social media posts reportedly demonstrate a hatred of white people, along with anti-government feelings.
But hey now you bigoted Islamophobes!
Let’s not go jumping to conclusions prematurely, says Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer.
It’s too early to ascertain if the mass-casualty event was related to Islamic terrorism, Dyer said.
Yes, he said that.
*A police spokesman had said the man shouted “Ali Akbar.” This makes no sense. Ali Akbar is a person’s name. In fact, I know a guy named Ali Akbar and he’s not even a Muslim. The officer probably misspoke. Most Americans don’t have an ear for Arabic.
