France: Muslim Screams “Allahu Akbar” at “Joker” Screening, is Admitted to Psych Ward

The Express Tribune reported Wednesday that “French police has arrested a man for yelling ‘Allah hu Akbar’ during a screening of Joker at a cinema in Paris, after his actions caused panic among film-goers.”

A Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” caused a panic? Why, those greasy Islamophobes!

The Express Tribune continued that “the incident took place on Sunday evening at the Grand Rex Cinema and saw the man yell the phrase.” According to a witness, “In the middle of the film, a guy who was accompanied by another man, shouted ‘It’s political’. He repeated the sentence at least six times. At first, people laughed, then some asked him to shut up.”

At that point, the man who was shouting stood up and screamed “Allahu akbar.” The witness added: “People then got up in a panic and ran to the exits but the doors were blocked. Some were crying. A mother was looking for her daughter.”

The man who was screaming “Allahu akbar” then “managed to escape the cinema after other moviegoers tried to detain him. Police later arrested him. He was detained on suspicion of ‘apologising for terrorism.’”

No worries, however. No “Islamophobia” was committed. The man wasn’t held even for twenty-four hours: “By Monday evening, the detention had been lifted ‘following a review of behaviour,’ a judicial source told Le Parisien. The 30-year-old was reportedly admitted to the psychiatric ward of the police headquarters.”

This was an odd incident. How is it that in the enlightened, multicultural, diverse Paris of Emmanuel Macron, a theatre packed with people could be so “Islamophobic” as to think something was amiss with a pious Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar”? Will those who fled in panic be brought up on “Islamophobia” charges?

Apparently the English-language establishment media’s full-court press a few years ago to convince Americans that “Allahu akbar” was a benign phrase didn’t get echoed in the French establishment media.

It was a concerted effort. In the New York Daily News, Zainab Chaudry of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued that non-Muslims shouldn’t “believe the worst” about “Allahu akbar” because Muslims don’t just scream it while murdering non-Muslims, but use it in a variety of contexts. She even offered this chilling advice, certain to get people killed were it ever heeded: “So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it’s in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation.” So stay put, evidently; fleeing would be “Islamophobic.”

On CNN around the same time, Omar Suleiman — the imam who prevailed upon Google to alter their search results so as to bury any negative information about Islam — also argued that Muslims say “Allahu akbar” in a variety of contexts, many of them positive. And the New York Times actually tweeted that the phrase “Allahu akbar” had “somehow” become “intertwined with terrorism.”
