McCain: Shouting ´Allahu Akhbar!´
Same as Christians Shouting ´Thank God!´

Breitbart Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 9/3/2013 1:21:46 PM

On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) suggested that Fox News host Brian Kilmeade was Islamaphobic because he said that Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition. “I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’”

Comments:
No, Senator, that means "Allah is greatest" and it´s what Muslims shout as they slam planes into buildings or before they behead someone. John McCain is an utter disgrace.

Sadly, most of the time a muslim says that, it is right before innocent people die.

When Christians say "thank God", it´s usually right after something good happened.

I don´t know what the Viet Cong did to McPain while he was a prisoner, but apparently he has never gotten over it...

In defense of McCain during his POW years in Vietnam, his cellmates report that John routinely turned down offers of favors and better treatment in exchange for information. If accurate, I honor him for that.

However, there is no excuse for his poor performance as a senator for the past umpteen years. He has passed his "sell by" date. As #8 and others point out, "allahu Akhbar" is usually a celebration of the death of infidels. Don´t ever compare a muslim to a Christian, there´s a world of difference.

Yes, Mr. McCain, I would have a problem with Christians shouting "Thank God" after bombing innocent people. Therefore, I have a problem with Muslims shouting "Allahu Akhbar" after bombing innocent people.

I am coming to the frightening conclusion that our supposedly intelligent leaders and talking heads are extremely stupid, obtuse, and in spite of an Ivy League education, are highly ignorant.

But especially obtuse. Come on, McCain, you don´t understand at all what Kilmeade meant?

In fact, members of the Obama coalition think ANY references to "God" by Christians are evidence that the uttererers are members of rightwing terrorist groups.

I don´t think he´s a fool or senile - he´s a member of the ruling class, and his main mission is to maintain it. He sees himself as the leader of the supposed opposition and therefore the one in charge of any criticism of the administration. As part of that, he must denigrate any opposition opinion other than his own.

As far as I know Christians like me aren´t going around shouting Thank God and killing folk. Maybe McCrash Test Dummy knows something that I don´t. Kilmeade is a dillweed for not pointing this out for the old fool. McAmnesty needs for retire to one of his seven homes(or an old folks home in AZ) and go spend his wife´s beer money.

You know that is total BS and why you said is to either give the Terrorists cover or you are just so demented and stupid you have no clue.

People do not say "Thank God" and then murder others!

Muslims DO SAY Allahu Akhbar and then they DO KILL OTHER PEOPLE.

How you cannot understand that means YOU need to RETIRE and GO AWAY!

There is no fool like an old fool.
McLame has passed his use-by date, and should be taken off the shelf.
Ignorance is no excuse, especially to a policy-setting member of the Senate.
What were they thinking in Arizona?
Why didn´t they elect Strom Thurmond or some other safely dead person?
McBlame is not dead, it is just his brain that is gone.
And here I have been thinking that Joe Biden was the King of gaff-land.

#15 - that was after he ´broke´ and assisted the Viet Cong against his fellow prisoners. Some of this came out when the Swift Boat´s blog was after. Basically all the Swift Boaters covered for him, but some did not. McCain and Kerry also shut down the committee BEFORE they went through all of the information they had about sightings of POWs in the 90´s and said all were account for. What really made them disband was Kerry´s brother had financial dealings to pursue and couldn´t do it while they had the committee open. Yes, just like Benghazi, they left American serviceman behind!

#15 I understand your sentiment in wishing to honor McCain´s Vietnam service; however, Honor can be irreversibly marred, thus the term DISHONOR. McCain is not worthy of a hat tip on any day. He has and continues to destroy whatever acknowledgments he earned in Vietnam. Remember, Benedict Arnold was a great General and helped defeat the British. He captured Fort of Ticonderoga in 1775 and was instrumental in the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. Still the man was a TRAITOR and will forever be known as such. In my opinion McCain is heading down the same path.

No, John McCain, Christians do not shout "Praise G-d" before they seek to murder "infidels", those who disagree with their religion. Are you kidding me? Have you ever heard a Christian say this? You, sir, have lost your right to be a US senator, imho, and should be recalled TODAY. My suspicions about you are now confirmed.

It is this kind of thinking that has us in the mess we are in today. And I am SICK of it.

#33, there´s a statue of Benedict Arnold´s leg near the battlefield at Saratoga--he was injured there, and his heroism is recognized. But they didn´t see fit to honor the rest of his traitorous body.

McCain is wrong about Allahu Akhbar, just as he is wrong about most things. He should just go away, but he loves the cameras too much.

Senator, the God of Jews and Christians cannot be the same god the Islamists call Allah. Allah supposedly dictated a book to Mohammed word for word that says without hesitation that Jesus is not God, did not die and was not resurrected. Therefore when an Islamist says Allahu Akhbar, he is not talking about the same god.

Nothing to do with thanking God. I wish some host on those endless talk shows where the fool appears will call him on this plain error of fact.

According to Andy McCarthy - who knows - Allahu Akhbar means Allah is Greater (I refuse to even refer to this evil entity as god, big G or small g). To me, Allah is SATAN by another name, not God.

Or perhaps, the god of Evil. I could see it that way.

It makes me sad to see McCain slipping to this degree. For a U.S. Senator to state that allahu akhbar is no different than shouting thank God is shameful and insults America. If McCain has slipped to where he really thinks this is true, it´s time to say, "good-bye," and if he doesn´t get it, it´s time to say, "good-bye."

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

Looking back at the appeals and legislation surrounding the Terri Schiavo case makes my head spin.

A lawless and politically transparent Obama administration just became more so on both counts. The “imminent” decision to implement yet another delay of ObamaCare, reported by The Hill on Tuesday, became reality Wednesday. Americans who have plans that don’t comply with the ObamaCare mandates can keep them through October 2017, provided that their states allow it, according to the latest fixes. In addition, next year’s open enrollment period was extended by a month, and insurers will get additional financial help to offset the costs of claims made by new ObamaCare enrollees.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is contracted to purchase 704,390,250 rounds of ammunition over the next four years, which is equal to a total of about 2,500 rounds per DHS agent, according to a January 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report entitled Ammunition Purchases Have Declined Since 2009. “If DHS were to purchase all 704 million rounds over the next four years, and if they were used by 70,000 DHS agents and officers, it would be roughly 2,500 rounds per agent per year,” David Maurer, author of the GAO report, told CNSNews.com.

The Seattle Seahawks have revealed that a good part of their defensive strategy at the Super Bowl came from the fact that they were able to decode Peyton Manning´s hand signals on the field. Controversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play. ´We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
