"Allahu akbar" means "Allah is great", and is the foundation for every Muslim prayer. It is also part of what the muezzin broadcasts from the mosque to call Muslims to salat (prayer) five times per day, as one of the five Pillars of Faith.

Believe it or not, we know. But trolling is funnier than stating facts in breaking news threads. Welcome to Fark.

Primum non nocere: I know I'm going to elicit invective here, but have to agree with Only M3 to some degree. American evangelicals for the most part are hard-working Americans who pay their taxes and mow their grass. Yes, they try to stop you from buying beer on Sunday. And yes, they will harass teenagers who are trying to get an abortion. But to equate them with the Taliban or Al-Qaeda is just disingenuous..

MOST islamic fundies aren't down with any of that AQ crap either. The percentage is rather higher than that of the violence-approving xtian fundies, but from the steadily increasing domestic derp levels, I'd say they're getting closer.

The enemy isn't Islam. The enemy is fundamentalism - of any stripe. Millenialist/Triumphalist dedication to dogma is death.

I'd be careful storming any Libyan government compounds right now.

Its the worst thing in the world when Libya does it, but when elected officials say "America is a christian nation" , they think those of us who get worried by those statements are just crazy.

Not crazy, idiotic. Because the last time American "Christians" flew airlines into skyscrapers, hijacked airliners, bombed embassies, celebrated 9/11 murders, demanded the death of those who wouldn't convert, bombed airliners, hung bodies from bridges lighting fire to them while cheering and dancing, beat airline passengers to death and dumped their bodies on the tarmac, kidnapped civilians, beheaded civilians who were hogtied while filming it for their j/o sessions was when exactly?

I hate jahova's witnesses knocking at my door too, but that's not exactly a moral equivalent to the animals you're watching on all-allah channel, no matter how much of your derp you add to it.


Well to play devils advocate, Christians did have their day of mind numbing violence but they got it out of their system centuries ago.

As big of a scumbag that Mcviegh was he never claimed before, during or after his bombing that his motivations were religious they were ideological.

A BIG difference between Mcviegh type crazies and AQ crazies is that Mcviegh (and others) DIDN'T STAY WITH THE TRUCK. He ran for his life. That kind of crazy can be deterred with the high possibility of capture or death. The suicide bomber needs only to reach his objective and his escape/extraction takes care of itself.

The rebels are starting to make themselves look like dumbasses. First 2 of his kids they said they had are running around giving CNN interviews, and then I just heard a news lady go:

"We think its celebration gunfire, but they have been shooting off anti aircraft rounds and rpg's into the air, so its really not safe to be outside"

I thought these guys were educated. Do Libyan colleges skip physics?

Read recently that it's more common in the Arab world due to the relative lack of available females. I'm pissed as hell, but I'm not going to blow anything up because I've got to think about my wife and kids. A guy with no romantic possibilities isn't going to have that concern. And then there are those 72 virgins.

Certainly. However mainstream christianity goes out of their way to condone lone nutjobs. You have huge elements of islam that cheer it on, and a large portion that still goes...uhh....well....yea....we don't really condone it per say....but ISRAEL!

It's all about context. Don't think for a second that if the free, open society we have today broke down, along with its federal laws/rights, those people wouldn't be beheading homosexuals or stoning adulterers in the local town square. They're no better, it's the same brand of crazy (religious extremism) and it's only tempered by the rest of the society that they have to live in.

31 min ago - Libya
Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam, wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, has not been arrested by rebels despite earlier reports and is still in Tripoli, an AFP journalist said Tuesday.

Several journalists, including an AFP correspondent, saw Saif al-Islam in Muammar Gaddafi's residential complex in the capital. ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo had earlier said the 39-year-old was arrested and in detention. - AFP

The next person who pulls the "Hitler was Christian" thing needs to be put in a farking concentration camp. From your own link that you clearly read so well:

"He sometimes made public statements which seemed to affirm religion (which suited his political purposes) [...] but in private was hostile to Christianity and had a plan to destroy it after the war."

For the life of me I'll never get why a bunch of religious folks get their panties in a twist over people praising God in another language.

Allah Akbar = God is Great.

Is that an alien concept to Christians? Hell no. Do you want to guess how an Arabic speaking Christian, many of whom are extremely devout Christians who are often Christian in the face of extreme adversity, would comment on the greatness of God?

The problem is that people in the Arab world tend to utter the phrase when committing acts of hatred and violence. I'm not a Christian, but I'd be offended if someone claimed to praise the same God as me and uttered his name in this manner.
