FLASHBACK: John McCain Says an Islamist Shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’ is Same as Christians Saying ‘Thank God!’

On September 2, 2013, RINO Senator John McCain, who will turn 80-years-old one day before Arizona’s primary date of August 30, 2016, appeared on FOX News with Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy.

After Kilmeade shows video footage of what appears to be a Syrian fighter jet shot out of the sky, with the man apparently doing the shooting yelling at the top of his lungs, “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” After referring to McCain’s meeting with defected former Syrian General Salim Idris, who may have ties to ISIS, the eye-rolling, chuckling McCain let out this doozy, suggesting that an Islamist screaming “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” after a terrorist victory is the moral equivalent of a Christian shouting “Thank God!”

When Kilmeade began to say that he had a problem helping those out who would shout “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” a clearly irritated McCain rudely and abruptly interrupted him.

“You have a problem with that?” McCain asked Kilmeade. “Would you have a problem with American Christians saying, ‘thank God, thank God?’ That’s what they’re saying — come on.”

Yeah, that’s the same thing, John. You see Christians shouting “thank God, thank God” all over the world committing human atrocities, don’t you?

Many believe that McCain was duped — that the ones he “guaranteed” were “moderates” were actually emerging ISIS members and/or ideological affiliates, and if America had taken McCain’s advice, ISIS would be ruling Syria right now, which is even worse than having Assad in charge.

McCain, who replaced legendary conservative Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater in 1987, and is seeking re-election in 2016, is being challenged by conservative Republican Dr. Kelli Ward, a former Arizona State Senator.
