The Press Has a ‘Problem’ With Understanding Terrorism

The New York Times recently tweeted that the Muslim phrase that translates to “God is good” has “somehow” been linked to terrorist attacks. Hmm, and why is that now?

Glenn talked about the phrase “Allahu akbar” and what it means for ordinary Muslims in everyday life vs. why it’s associated with terrorism because we’ve seen so many terrorists cry out the phrase before or during an attack.

“[Muslims] literally say it all the time, and in most cases, it’s a really nice sentiment,” Glenn said.

The problem is that crying out “Allahu akbar” has become a pattern with terrorists; it hasn’t been used as a rallying cry in an isolated attack or just one case. If we lived in a world where Christian terrorists were murdering people in brutal attacks, wouldn’t “Jesus is my Lord and Savior” or a similar phrase also be associated with fear?

GLENN: Well, I think there is -- there's a real problem with the press. They don't understand why Allahu Akbar is a problem. In fact, the New York Times just tweeted, Allahu Akbar somehow has become inextricably intertwined with terrorism. Somehow its real meaning is far more innocent.

Yeah. Well, its real meaning is God is great, and I tend to agree. God is great. It's a phrase that is said by Muslims everywhere, at least five times a day, during their daily prayers. I'm sure they'll say it, you know, when their football team turns a game around: God is great. Or when they see a newborn baby. Allahu Akbar, God is great. They literally say it all the time. And in most cases, it's a really nice sentiment. It's a phrase that Muslims utter so often that it really is not note both.

Except when a radical Muslim uses it before they blow themselves up or run into a bunch of children on the street or hack somebody's head off. Remember what happened earlier this week, New York Times? The guy killed eight people in New York City, and then he said, Allahu Akbar.

See, the problem is this isn't an isolated attack and an isolated case. The men who carried out the attack on the French newspaper, Charlie Hebdo in 2015, shouted that while they were slaughtering people. And the phrase kind of cut through the air as a British soldier was run down during the military -- around the military barracks in 2013. And then he was hacked to death. Remember that?

Allahu Akbar. Yeah. Now, it is a shame that a handful of terrorists have hijacked such a profound yet simple prayer and condition us to fear those words. But I dare say, if there were many Christians hacking people to death and then saying, Jesus with is my Lord and savior. You really wouldn't have a problem.

You would kind of understand why everybody would rush for the doors, if somebody came in bursting into the room and saying, Jesus is my Lord and savior.

The Muslim community has come out and condemned the New York City attack, but they have to make their voice much louder.

And when they do, as in the case with the imam who warned the mayor of New York City, several times, hey, I can help you. Maybe you should look over here, because they're training terrorists, you on the left need to listen.

The God that Saipov praised, God is great, before running over 20 people, is not the God that I believe most Muslims pray to. He's certainly not the God that I pray to.

Allahu Akbar. Yes. God is great.

But God doesn't want you to hack the heads off of people or run down children in the street. Any violence done in the name of God is nothing more than a twisted lie.

Why the Disinformation Board was REALLY canceled…

Just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being paused and Nina Jankowicz is now on her way out. I'll bet you, in six months, we'll come back around to this -- mark it in your calendar. We'll come around to this story and say, oh. Remember when they canceled that? Yeah. They just shifted everything, under this umbrella, to hide it.

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I read some stuff this morning. I've been doing some research on what's happening with the WHO. And I read their stuff today, that will make your head explode. And is really evil and important.

But let me give you this today, from -- from Daniel Horowitz at TheBlaze. States must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulation.

I'm going to read it verbatim because it's just so well-written. And now is the time, that things are shifting. We're going to. There's going to be a New World Order out there. And we've got to lead it. And we have to unite the rest of the free world in doing it. That's Joe Biden. March 21st, 2022.

Any Republican that is running without mentioning your intent to fight the global pandemic treaty or regulations, might as well run as a Democrat. This is really super important, and it is beginning to happen next week. On May 22nd, the world health assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, is going to meet in Geneva Switzerland to discuss the next step in its pandemic treaty. And the quest to use public health to expand the WHO's power over sovereign states. Representatives from 193 nations, including the US, will be attending the only country, not invited is Taiwan.

Gee, I wonder why. So what is this treaty? On January 24th, 2022, the director general of the WHO explained the treaty was a priority, to urgently strength the WHO, as leading and the director authority on global health, at the center of the global health architecture. He laid out the guiding principle of this plot. We, quote, all want a world in which science triumphs over misinformation. Solidarity triumphs over division. And equity is a reality, not an aspiration. He said, we are one world, we have one health. We are one WHO.

Now, this has not been announced. Biden has not even spoken about it. They are deathly quiet about this. But they're going to be approving amendments. The proposed amendments are essentially going to allow the director general of the WHO to declare public health emergencies in any country. And unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions. Here's one of the amendments, a critical section from article nine. The WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party, whose territory the event is allegedly occurring. But this is the way it's going to read. Now, WHO may take into account, reports from sources of other than notifications or consultations -- consultations shall assess these reports, according to established principles. And then communicate information on the event, to the state party, in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.

Now, they have scratched out, before taking any action based on reports, the WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party. That's all gone. They're taking that out.

So WHO gets information, has reports, and they can act without verifying with the president or anybody else.

Why would you be erasing the requirement, for the WHO to consult with the government?

Number four. If the state party does not accept the offer of collaboration within 48 hours, WHO, it used to say, May. It now says, WHO shall -- when justified by the magnitude of public health risk, immediately share with other state parties, the information available, whilst encouraging the state party to accept the offer of collaboration, by the WHO. It used to say there, while taking into accounts the views of the state party concerned.

So they're erasing all of our sovereignty. This is going to be another thing. They're going to say, is a conspiracy theory. It is not. You can look it all up. It is the world health agenda. From the World Health Organization. They are meeting in Geneva, on May 22nd. So that's next week. They are intentionally quiet on this.

Because they know the power. Now, we also know what the WHO is. You remember, when everybody was saying, we have to get out of the WHO.

They're just a tool of China. Why would you say that?

Forget that I mentioned that Taiwan is the only country that is not invited to this in Geneva.

PAT: Yeah. That's completely -- completely irrelevant.

GLENN: Completely. Amen, brother.

PAT: I don't even know why you brought it up in the first place.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you.

PAT: It's a good thing they weren't actually -- I wish we weren't invited to it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. Another reason why Donald Trump. They fought so hard to keep him out: Because he wouldn't have --

PAT: He sure wouldn't have. That's exactly right.

GLENN: He wouldn't have empowered the WHO.

PAT: Well, he took us out of the WHO.

GLENN: That's exactly right. And this president is not only putting us back, they're taking away our sovereignty.

And so it's one more piece to the global governance of the left. Warning.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …
