06/11/2019

German police have been accused of "a massive attack" and "racial profiling" after arresting a group of Muslim men who were said to be chanting "Allahu akbar" in front of Cologne cathedral, and also in front of a main train station. The phrase means "Allah is greater," i.e., the Allah of Islam is superior to your god. Cologne police chief Uwe Jacob hit back against the allegations of racial profiling saying: "I strongly reject the allegations against my officials that their actions were marked by racism and xenophobia."
