Skip to comments.CNN's Jake Tapper: 'Allahu Akbar' Can Be Said Under 'Most Beautiful' of Circumstances
Posted on 11/01/2017 3:41:20 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
CNN anchor Jake Tapper said the Islamic phrase "Allahu akbar" is "beautiful" just minutes after a terrorist attack in New York City.
Suspect Sayfullo Saipov allegedly slammed a truck into bikers and pedestrians Tuesday afternoon near lower Manhattan's West Side Highway, killing 8 and injuring at least 11.
Saipov reportedly yelled "Allahu akbar" - Arabic for "God is great" - after crashing the truck before an NYPD officer was able to shoot him.
The Arabic chant 'Allahu Akbar,' God is great, sometimes is said under the most beautiful of circumstances. And too often, we hear it being said in moments like this, Tapper said on "The Lead."
On "The Five," Jason Chaffetz said the overwhelming majority of Muslims do not commit acts of terror, but it is important to acknowledge that there is an element of radical jihadists in the Islamic faith.
"And we have to be honest about who they are and what they're doing," Chaffetz said.

“CNNs Jake Tapper Calls Allahu Akbar Beautiful After Terrorist Attack [VIDEO]”
“CNN anchor Jake Tapper called the Islamic phrase Allahu Akbar beautiful minutes after reports of a terrorist attack in New York City, Tuesday on The Lead.”
Eradicate Islam completely.
The time has come.
He’s a moron, Jim.
The Constitution forbids guillotining this buttwipe.
Perhaps there IS a justification for a living Constitution.
Lord, I despise these b@astards.
Mooselimbs are like nitroglycerin.
All stable and innocent looking until they explode.
ESAD Jake Tapper can be said in most any circumstance.
Stop defending the guy/s
Moron is waaay too kind ;)
Bet he wouldn’t say that about “Jesus is Lord!”
It means Allah is Greatest.
It is a scream of supremacy.
The duty of every muslim is jihad until there are no more infidels.
Jihad will only stop when there is no one willing to die for Allah.
I wonder if Jake would consider the most beautiful circumstance to be when it is said while beheading liberals
Well, he’s completely lost it now.
Who are we say that when a terrorist slits your throat and cuts off your head that the terrorist is not “feeling the love” from Allah?
Maybe Allah loves it. Maybe the terrorist loves it. Maybe we just don’t get it.
To get a 10% bonus for a hit ?
OK, so I’m supposed to put Allahu Akbar in the best light possible, despite the fact that it’s constantly shouted during terror attacks, but I’m supposed to consider things like Make America Great Again to be some kind of dog-whistle code for racism and White Supremacy.
I suppose things like this come more naturally to those who are better educated (indoctrinated) at our universities ... but I guess I just don’t get it.
The correct translation is “God is greater” not “god is great.” It is essentially a term used by a polytheistic religion to mock the god of its opponents by saying “we have a greater god than yours.” The Kaaba is said to have over 300 names for god with “Allah” as its greatest. The phrase is simply used to mock Christianity.
Jake been free-basing again.....The one brain cell he has left is spasming...
