Does Punch-Out!! Character Shout Islamic Phrase?

A few months back there was a minor uproar surrounding "Islam is the light," a phrase which some people thought they heard uttered by both a talking baby doll and a children’s DS game.

In a video posted late last week on YouTube, a man claims that a character in Nintendo’s recently-released Wii title Punch-Out!! shouts "Allah Akbar," an Arabic phrase which translates to "God is great."

RevolutionOfCG, who describes himself as a conservative pundit in his YouTube profile, posted the clip of fighter Bald Bull and equates the character’s supposed utterance of the phrase with terrorism:

Allah Akbar or God Is Great. For those of you that don’t understand the implications of this. Let me put it to you this way. Virtually Every Muslim Terrorist has said this before they blew themselves up or in the case of 9-11, before they slammed into buildings…

Hailing from Istanbul Turkey, if we are to understand the implications of culture, Bald Bull is more than likely a Muslim…


Not even 8 years after 9-11 and are we going to accept this phrase in a video game Rated E for Everyone. What do the families of these heinous crimes think of this? Someone out there has to be appalled, I’m certain of that.

The narration of the video includes 9/11 footage of the second plane striking the World Trade Center. As to the phrase Allah Akbar, its Wikipedia page lists a variety of uses other than by terrorists:

This phrase is recited by Muslims in numerous different situations. For example, when they are happy or wish to express approval, when they want to praise a speaker, during battles, and even times of extreme stress or euphoria. It is also used by bombers or suicide bombers before they detonate.

The phrase is said during each stage of both obligatory prayers, which are supposed to be performed five times a day, and supererogatory prayers, which are performed at will…

That’s, of course, assuming that Bald Bull actually says Allah Akbar, which is unconfirmed at this point.

    "People will continue to put Islam down until Muslims openly denounce terrorism and actually help to destroy it"

    Newsflash: You can’t "destroy" terror. It’s an emotion. People will always be afraid of things out of their control, and the people who terrorize them will continue to do so for an infinite number of reasons. That’s one of the things about heinous acts of violence: they’re scary.

    "I also know that the Islamic people are unwilling to prove that by taking out terrorism."

    You clearly don’t know much of anything.

  5. jedidethfreak says:

    Just because some idiots believe that all Muslims are terrorists, do not believe that there are no more Muslim terrorists.  People will continue to put Islam down until Muslims openly denounce terrorism and actually help to destroy it, instead of claiming that the United States is looking to destroy Islam.  I know that a very small percentage of Muslims are terrorists, but I also know that the Islamic people are unwilling to prove that by taking out terrorism.

  6. Monte says:

     What i think is extra pathetic is that he deleted what sounded like a plausible argument to what else he might have been saying… I forget what the arabic was, but i think the explaination was that when he hits he says "take that" and when he misses he says "What a waste"… when those two terms are said back to back in arabic you get something that just happens to sound like "Allah Akbar"… it was definitely a comment that should have either been excepted as a possible interpretation, or if incorrect, should have been refuted…

    the fact that he would delete the comment instead of doing either of those shows just what kind of guy he is (as if there was any doubt)

    Isn’t it comforting, knowing that our country was originally settled by Religious Nuts who were too extreme for even the 17th Century? At least we can look at the wingnuts today and go, "Well, at least they aren’t as bad as the Pilgrims were!"

  15. DarkSaber says:

    As in the settlers say they left to escape persecution, the rest of the world says they kicked them out?

    "you know religious persecution was something that many people came to America to escape. "

    I was always of the impression most of the original settlers were religious nutjobs that had been packed up and shipped over because they were TOO extreme for their home countries, and were annoying a lot of people by trying to enforce their extreme beliefs on everyone else.

    You bet your ass we fucking are meatlump.  I’m not sure if you are aware of what country you are living in there skinwaste, but you know religious persecution was something that many people came to America to escape.  Slack-jawed window lickers like this fellow here I think would really be happier off in a country where you are told what faith you can or can’t follow. 

    Why is it that often the people who claim to be the most patrotic are so often the same ones who dislike the freedoms this country was founded on?

  22. Mad_Scientist says:

    Probably just the guy hearing what he expects/wants to hear, but even if not, so what?

    What’s wrong with having Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, etc, characters in video games? According to wikipedia, the phrase is used "during battles, and even times of extreme stress or euphoria," so it would make perfect sense for it to be used during the matches. Simply having a Muslim character in a game isn’t some insidious piece of anti-Americian terrorist propaganda or whatever he thinks it is.

  23. Sai says:

    Cause I’m sure there are no Christians in the world who shout praises to tha lawd as they pipe bomb family planning clinics or anything. Clearly we must ban all mentions of the Abrahamic god as potential utterances terrorism.

    christians and catholics can run around saying god this, god that, god hates fags no gay marriage, kill abortion doctors, etc…  but the second someone who is non-white america says anything in praise of their deity of choice, it becomes controversial in our society where people are, supposedly, "free of religious persecution"?

  28. Matthew says:

    A character who may (or may not) be a Muslim says something which may (or may not) sound like something a Muslim may (or may not) say before he may (or may not) kill innocent Christians in an act of terrorism. This guy fell out of the offended tree and hit every self-righteous branch on the way down. Then beat it with his face until it fell over.

    I was playing Team Fortress 2 last night, and I swear that some of the character quotes were, in English, telling me they were going to kill me. That’s just the sort of thing someone might say before they killed me! Somebody should do something about that.

    Though I have to admit that the moron that shot up that Army recruiting center a couple of days ago is not doing the Muslim faith any favors.  Unfortunately, perspective is reality for many people and this will be reinforced if it is not publicly condemned.

    What the others before me said. I listened to the video, and he says something like "A-ragh" or "Al-la" when striking, and something "Aghbeh" when he misses. Sounds like random grunts to me.

    Also, "God is Great" is a general phrase. What, are you going to forbid the phrase "He loves you" next, because the Skrulls said it during their secret invasion?

  35. Lou says:

    Uh If memory doesn’t fail me Bald Bull is from Istanbul Turkey and their official language is Turkish, they don’t speak arabic. I wonder if this turd has ever used more than three brain cells? I might also add that most of the are Sunnis but they are not extremists.

    I certainly didn’t realize that a Video Game Character who comes from a Predominantly muslim country could POSSIBLY EVER say a phrase that is as common in the Muslim World as "God Bless" is in America.

    Really, these fearmongering morons should spend thier time focused on things other than trying to convince us that every Muslim ever is evil, and that any muslim phrases are CLEARLY terrorism in action.

  40. Andrew Eisen says:

    "That’s, of course, assuming that Bald Bull actually says Allah Akbar, which is unconfirmed at this point."

    I’ve played and beat the game.  I don’t hear it.  Check out the 30 second mark of this Youtube video.  Bald Bull says something like "Allah" or "Allahn" when he punches.  When he misses he occasionally utters something that sounds similar to "Akbar" or "Akmahn" but the two words seem unrelated.

  48. Amillennialist says:

    For those claiming that Qur’an is against violence or that anyone who expresses concern about Islam is "bigoted" or a "moron," you ought to do a little of your own research.

    Is it not "bigoted" to judge without knowledge?  Is it not "moronic" to attack those telling the truth in defense of Life and Liberty?

    The following is available to any Infidel with an ISP:

    "the Messenger of Allah . . . would say: ‘Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war. . . . When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. . . . Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. . . . If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them . . .’" (Muslim Book 19, Number 4294).

    "fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war) . . . " (Qur’an 9:5).

    "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (Qur’an 9:29).

    "Allah’s Apostle said: ‘I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle . . . ‘" (Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24).

    "It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise" (Qur’an 8:67).

    "Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror. The treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand’" (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220).

    Unfortunately, there is much more just like that from Qur’an, the ahadith collections considered traditionally most reliable by Muslims, and sira.

    Then how could a game in which the entire point is for you to BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF HIM be a bad thing?

    If this guy is right, then he’s bitching about a game in which the entire point is beat the living crap out of a terrorist.

    You’d think he’d be all for that.

  66. JustChris says:

    Those terrorists are only Muslim in their "allegedness". They never do as they say. Isn’t that so hard for people to realize?

    Leave competition out of religion is my philosophy.

  67. ZenAndNow says:

    I’ve always wondered how that works though. Why do people say they must emulate the Prophet, yet say that violence is discouraged? Dude waxed philosophical to be sure, but he also went on a brutal rampaging conquest of the region and gave people the choice of death or conversion. Mohammed "Conquered Medena by the Word and Mecca by the Sword" and all that after all.

    Not sure how the "discourage violence" bit fits with that.

    That doesn’t make these Christian nutbags, or any other religious fanatic correct when they make these assertations, but saying the Koran discourages violence is a fair bit of a stretch given most of the religious punishments within its pages are horribly horribly violent. It’s a bit like the Old Testament/Talmud(or is that Torah?) in that respect.

  68. Valdearg says:

    REAL muslims don’t blow shit up either. Violence is actually discouraged in the Quaran. The reality of it is that we are making a big deal about this, even though Christians happen to perform terrorist acts as well.

    The Knoxville Shooting and The Abortion Murder were both acts that intended to inspire terror amongst the people who happen to disagree with them. Terrorist acts. Yet, we don’t see anyone freaking out when a Christian Character in a game says "God Bless" or something similar, when, in many cases, Christians have murdered or blown something up in the name of God, as well. There is a double standard here, and by freaking out at anything Muslim, we are just making fools of ourselves.

  69. JustChris says:

  73. chipsugar says:

    I could *almost* accept this guys point if it wasn’t for the fact that the character is nearer "saying" Alle Achbeh. It’s clearly not intended to be Allah ackbar. If it was though I’d say that putting it in the middle of a game with cartoonish violence is only slightly inappropriate.

    So if the character shouted "Praise Jesus" it would be ok? At least until a bunch of Christian terrorists go and blow themselves up saying "Praise Jesus" beforehand, at which point it would be indicative of terrorism in a video game?

  85. Zerodash says:

    If the 9-11 terrorists had said "spaghetti" before crashing the planes, would this guy suggest we abstain from using that word?

    *Face palm*  And yes, I don’t care if anyone yells at me for face palming, this situation deserves it.

    I for one am appalled.

    Our grandfathers and great grandfathers fought in WWII and were often faced with suicide charges by Japanese soldiers, during which their battle cry would include the word Banzai.

    Now that word represents an 80’s cult movie, a Japanese game show spoof, a character in the Disney movie "The Lion King", and a deal-maker on Zazzle.

    Appalled I say, that words can have multiple meanings, that language can be used to signify different things, and that the world can be so utterly confusing.

    I need to take a nap.

    Someone out there has to be appalled, I’m certain of that.

    Just you it seems.
