Dr Pipes

I'm sure you must be aware of this insane story where a certain Benjamin Fearnow who is supposed to be a reporter at Newsweek (dear readers could you remind us what is really Newsweek?) He reads a tweet by Richrad Dawkins about his dislike for the insane shouting of Muslims "Allahu Akbar" and Mr Fearnow is telling us that this is Islamophobia and then he quotes a tweet by Gad Saad that Allahu Akbar means:

"Arabic is my mother tongue. When properly translated "Allahu Akbar" means: "We love all people but we hold special fondness for Jews women and gays. Don't worry it is a message of love tolerance and liberalism"

Obvious sarcasm but not for clueless Benjamin Fearnow who used Saad's tweet as evidence that Allahu Akbar is about love and tolerance

Absolute insanity

No wonder MSM is becoming irrelevant. Newsweek? Who the hell is reading Newsweek these days anyway?

Here is a link to an article about the subject at jihadwatch

And here is the video by Gad Saad

Oh the article by the genius Mr Benjamin Fearnow at Newsweek? It has been, as expected, deleted with no explanation!
