Sen. McCain: Saying 'Allahu Akbar' Is Just Like Saying 'Thank God'

Sen. John McCain said shouting “Allahu Akbar” is the same as saying “thank God.”

McCain (R-AZ) made that stunning theological pronouncement during an interview on Fox and Friends. (Watch the interview above.)

“For someone to say Allahu Akbar is about as offensive as someone saying thank God,” McCain said.

Kilmeade told the senator he had an issue with recently obtained video that reportedly shows Syrian rebels shooting down a Syrian fighter jet and shouting, “Allahu Akbar!”

“I have a problem helping those people out, if they’re screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said.

McCain then gave us a glimpse at his vast knowledge of theology.

“Would you have a problem with American Christians saying, thank God, thank God?” McCain retorted. “That’s what they’re saying. Come on. Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates.”

Sen. McCain has no idea what he’s talking about.

Allahu Akbar is what the terrorists said before flying jetliners into the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania.

Thank God is what they said when Americans discovered their loved ones survived the attacks.

Allahu Akbar is what traitor Nidal Hasan said before American soldiers were slaughtered at Fort Hood.

Thank God is what they said when Americans discovered their loved ones survived the attacks.

Allahu Akbar is what the terrorists’ mother said after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Thank God is what they said when Americans discovered their loved ones survived the attacks.

Perhaps Sen. McCain should refrain from theological dissertation and do what he does best – carry President Obama’s water.
