The phrase Allah Akbar – meaning God is Great – is uttered by Muslims the world over. The fact that God is great is not in dispute. God affords human beings the liberty to manifest their own destiny. Liberty is the greatest gift of all; eternal liberty. Some Muslims may consider naming the image of the Statue of Liberty – Allah Akbar, controversial. For those Muslims that are offended, you are indeed the enemy of God. To subjugate and sequester the individual liberty of women and dissenters is blasphemy.
This universal truth is written in the Torah, Bible and Koran. With this post, the phrase Allah Akbar will be tied to a symbol of God’s greatest gift to humankind. Liberty. It is my sincere hope that this image rises above other images – films and the like – where terrorist utter the phrase “Allah Akbar” in succession; before, during and after they commit murder.
I have sworn upon the alter of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. – Thomas Jefferson
