Kori Ali Mohammad – Twitter
The Associated Press did everything possible to make sure that their article about the Fresno terrorist named Kori Muhammad didn’t come off as Islamic terrorist attack.
Muhammad killed 3 people today, targeted whites and a Catholic charity and screamed ‘Allahu Akbar!’. The Associated Press decided to put that he shouted ‘God is great’ instead of the Arabic ‘Allahu Akbar’. Some may argue that it means the same thing, however; the Arabic profession of ‘Allahu Akbar’ is a war cry and carries great significance.
AP even put in their article ‘God is great’ in English again to distance the terrorist from Islam…
The imam of the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno says the suspect in a shooting that killed three people was not a member of his center.
Seyed Ali Ghazvini said Tuesday that he and other faith leaders are trying to identify Kori Ali Muhammad.
Authorities say Muhammad yelled “God is great” in Arabic while being taken into custody. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says he also had posted on social media that he dislikes white people. All three victims were white.
Ghazvini offered prayers to the victims and their families. He said that members are shocked.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says the suspect in a shooting that killed three people in downtown Fresno shouted “God is great” in Arabic and had posted on social media that he dislikes white people.
All three victims in Tuesday’s killings were white. The police chief says they were shot minutes apart in close proximity in areas around downtown.
The Associated Press was really working hard to distance Kori Muhammad from Islam. I’m surprised they didn’t change his last name from Muhammad to ‘McDonald’.
Fresno police say suspect in triple slaying told them he hates white people, shouted “God is great” before killings. https://t.co/rrSOzfEXaB
