Which of these do you mentally associate with the phrase "Allahu Akbar"?
I'm not muslim so the only time I ever hear it is on the news after a terror attack.
Yep. Me too.
I associate it with praise and worship, of course. I hear it frequently, rarely in relation to terrorism.
If you answered "terrorism," you need to get out more.
It's what people associate it with, not what they know it means. It's not surprising that so manh people associate it with terrorism, considering how publicized Islamic terrorist attacks have been recently.
Precisely. Their only reference point for Islam is violent terrorism because they don't care to learn anything else.
General Akbar said, "It's a trap!"

I play fast and loose with my Star Wars trivia.
For example, I think the Kessel Run was inside the event horizon of a black hole. Faster than light travel allows escape. The penrose diagram flips time and space, making speed a matter of how much distance you do something in.
For those not in the know, it translates to "God is the greatest", or "God is great". It's used in a lot of prayers, but also sometimes as an exclamation in situations where one would say "Thank God!".
We know what it means, and we know how it is used when it appears in a news story. Muslim terrorists just murdered people in the name of their god.
If they were being honest, they would shout Shaitanu Akbar, since that’s the god they are appeasing with their crimes.
