Media Ignores Afghan Resettled in U.S. Shot Screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ During Knife Attack on Police

The media has utterly ignored the story of an Afghan who was resettled in the U.S. who was shot by police after he attacked them with a knife yelling “Allahu Akbar.”

The San Francisco Police Department reported that a man wielding a knife was fatally shot inside a residential building in San Francisco on Friday, according to S.F. officer Robert Rueca.

The man was identified as Ajmal Amani, an Afghan interpreter who was resettled in the U.S. sometime late in 2019.

Police bodycam and surveillance footage shows Amani, 41, rushing two police officers with a knife at a residential hotel in south San Francisco. Amani is clearly heard screaming the Muslim terror cry, “Allahu Akbar” as he charges police.

Officers attempted to defuse the situation and have Amani calm down and talk to them. But he remained agitated.

As Amani got closer, the officers fired their service weapons.

“As Mr. Amani closed the distance, officer 1 and officer 2 fired their respective weapons, striking Mr. Amani. Mr. Amani fell to the ground with the knife nearby him,” officer Rueca said of the shooting.


Amani was a former Afghan interpreter for the U.S. Special Forces. In 2019, he was charged with assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly slashing a city park ranger with a box cutter.
