Inside the rental truck, investigators found a handwritten note in which Sayfullo Saipov had declared his allegiance to the Islamic State, according to officials. Sayfullo means sword of Allah. The allegiance is to Islam – whether it’s ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezb’Allah, al Shabaab, Boko Haram and on and on on. He also had a bag with a big hunting knife.
The jihadi screamed ‘Allahu Akbar,’ which was Muhammad’s jihad war cry. “Allah is greater [than your god]!”

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
