Rebutting Snopes on ‘Obama’s Muslim Gang Sign’

There are two videos of the event where Obama made this display of his forefinger. People who have questioned the article’s interpretation of the gesture should take a close look at these videos, and listen to them as well.

It does not take forensic science to recreate the scenario. It’s all there in the videos: just after Obama walked on stage, an off-camera voice coming from behind him cried, “Allahu Akbar.” This is a Muslim expression meaning “God is the greatest,” a cry that Muhammad, the creator of Islam, made frequent use of to incite people to violence and to praise their violent deeds.
