Never forget: 15 years of Allahu Akbar-itis


This is what madness looks like.

“When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.”

That’s what 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta wrote in the jihad checklist found in his baggage 15 years ago after the terror attacks took 2,996 innocent lives.

Seconds before United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on that day, the last sound passengers heard was the hijackers chanting “Allahu Akbar.” The official transcript of the flight recorder translated the Arabic taunts:

Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest.
Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest.

Over the past 15 years, Koran-inspired Islamic jihadists have shouted the crystal-clear refrain over and over and over again—as genuflecting jihad apologists shout even louder that their murderous deeds “have nothing to do with Islam.”

“Never forget?”

Never forget the enablers and apologists who want us never to remember that the root cause of 9/11 and the endless string of Allahu Akbar-itis outbreaks that have ensued over the past 15 years is not poverty, lack of education, lack of diversity, Gitmo, YouTube videos, Israel, or America.

It’s in the Koran.
