MUST SEE VIDEO: “Allahu Akbar” Controversy

There is a controversy in Great Britain. Sky News has the scoop. The police and military were planning terrorist exercises. The guys playing the bad guys planted bombs and before setting them off yelled “Allahu Akbar.” They were fake bombs mind you, but by saying what they said, they were clearly using Islamic terrorists as the model for the attack.

The Islamic community and human rights groups were horrified and outraged. Sky News interviewed one of the people upset about the training exercise. The man demanded “cultural sensitivity.”

The news anchor, following that interview, pivots to the next news story. In Germany, several people were killed after a terrorist actually and really yelled “Allahu Akbar” then started knifing people.

You can’t make this stuff up.
