How has the phrase “Allahu Akbar” come to have such a negative connotation? Don’t worry … the New York Times is on it:

Somehow?

It sure does.

Might it have something to do with the radical Islamist terrorists who shout it out while they’re trying to murder people?

It’s indeed sad that it’s become so intertwined with terrorism.

The blame for that lies squarely with the terrorists.

And somehow, it’s on the American public to get over their fears.

Great work as usual, New York Times.
