The Associated Press Won’t Report What a Killer Actually Said

A man in Fresno, CA has shot several people. He claimed he did not like white people and he yelled “Allahu Akbar” before shooting. That is according to the police. But, as the Associated Press reports it,

“God is great” may be the English translation, but that is not what he said. Note that the AP did not clarify that the man said it in Arabic or anything else. Yes, in the article the AP did, but their tweet speaks for itself. What American, at this point, doesn’t know what “Allahu Akbar” means in both denotation and connotation?
