AP Edits Fresno Shooter’s Words ‘Allahu Akbar' to Hide Islamic Faith

Fake news strikes again.

Tuesday afternoon, a Muslim man allegedly killed three white people in Fresno while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” TruthRevolt's Trey Sanchez has the details:

The suspect is Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, who is also wanted in the shooting death of a security guard last week at a Motel 6. Muhammad began his crime on foot in downtown Fresno around 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday when he shot into a Pacific Gas & Electric truck, killing the passenger. As he walked the streets, he encountered a random resident but missed the shot. However, the next random resident wasn’t so lucky. Muhammad’s last victim was in the parking lot of Catholic Charities. Muhammad was armed with a .357 revolver and fired 16 rounds across all four locations.

When police approached the suspect, he “dove onto the ground” and yelled “Allahu Akbar,” according to Dyer.

Apparently, Muhammad's social media is filled with anti-Trump rhetoric, he told the cops he hates white people, and his suspects were chosen because of their race. However, Police Chief Jerry Dyer called these murders “a random act of violence," saying that it's too early to draw any conclusions on motive.

The Associated Press, however, is really going overboard to to make sure you don't assume this guy is a Muslim terrorist. They went to the trouble of editing his words. The Daily Caller reports:

Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.”

On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic.

"God is great," is the type of thing that a person of any faith might say. Perhaps Muhammad is a member of a roving band of Baptists? Or an angry Presbyterian? Of course, the gymnastics that the mainstream media will undertake to obscure a murderer's Islamic faith speaks volumes about their bias. Fake news strikes again...  and this time, it's in the service of whitewashing Islam.
