Fake News: CNN and NY Times falsely report Sayfullo Saipov yelled ‘God is Great’ instead of ‘Allahu Akbar’

Political correctness can be dangerous and the latest dose of fake news comes from CNN and the New York Times, appearing to avoid the Islamic language of Manhattan terrorist Sayfullo Saipov, claiming he shouted “God is Great” instead of “Allahu Ackbar.”

CNN’s The Situation Room with host Wolf Blitzer, the graphic read  that the “Suspect was yelling ‘God is Great’ in Arabic” which isn’t even the correct translation: “Allahu Akbar” means “God is greater” (superlative).

Facebook created a “Crisis Response” named “The Violent Incident in Manhattan, New York” for people to identify if they were safe or not but DID NOT call it a terrorist attack.

The latest CNN headline reads “Suspect in deadly Manhattan truck attack is from Uzbekistan, sources say” – void of the words terror, terrorism, Islam or Muslim. In fact, Muslim and Islam DO NOT appear in the article anywhere as they report on the “act of terror.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper responds to Islamic terror attack: “Allahu Akbar” is “sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances.”


No surprise then that the NY Times did the SAME: No mention of Islam, Muslims read it here

In a separate post they make mention of Islam once, noting that “Two law enforcement officials said that investigators discovered handwritten notes in Arabic near the truck that indicated allegiance to the Islamic State.”

That is the lone reference to Islam.

CNN falsely reported on Tuesday that the Islamic terrorist who attacked and murdered innocent civilians in New York City shouted, “God is Great,” instead of what he is alleged to have actually said: “Allahu Akbar.”

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, is the alleged terrorist who yelled “Allahu Akbar” — “God is greater” (superlative) and in Arabic — as he got out of his truck, after he ran over multiple pedestrians, the New York Post reported.

However, on CNN’s The Situation Room with host Wolf Blitzer, the left-leaning news network chose to distort what Saipov said — claiming on their banner that he said “God is Great” in Arabic.
