McCain Slams Fox News: Muslims Thank Allah Like Christians Thank God (VIDEO)

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) pushed back hard Tuesday against a Fox News host who raised concerns over a Syrian rebel’s use of a ubiquitous Islamic phrase.

McCain was making an appearance on “Fox & Friends” to build his case for supporting the rebels who are fighting the Assad regime in Syria when co-host Brian Kilmeade showed what he said was alarming video footage. The clip showed an explosion in a Syrian city with a presumed rebel fighter heard chanting, “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!”

“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said.

A clearly annoyed McCain quickly hit back.

“You have a problem with that? Would you have a problem with an American Christian saying ‘thank God, thank God’?” McCain said. “That’s what they’re saying. Come on. Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you that they are moderates. I know them and I’ve been with them. For someone to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ is about as offensive as someone saying ‘thank God.'”

Kilmeade quickly changed the subject after McCain’s retort.

  1. McCain is a joke and apparently doesn’t understand Islam.

  2. Good for Senator McCain! Typical of Faux News to go off half cocked with a comment about something they know nothing about, yet call themselves journalists! A little research would have explained Allahuh Akbar!

Have your say!
