McCain: Saying Allahu Akbar is Like Saying Thank God
Fox News & Commentary ^ | September 3, 2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 09/03/2013 9:44:32 AM PDT by Timber Rattler

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 with Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends.

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.”

I can only respect this man’s history as a prisoner so far. He’s been IMO one of the worst politicians regarding the interest of this country we ever have had in modern times.

I would NOT be unhappy if he retired soon, which could never be too soon.

“Thank Allah, we’re killing more infidels”. That’s what they’re saying McCain.

McCain was a crazy bag o’ shiite decades ago. The only good thing he had going was his drug stupified thorazine goddess of a wife. That and his Napolean-like temper.

Just when I thought this wasted relic could not be more stupid.

Yes, the moslems are thanking their moon god allah for helping them to destroy life everywhere they spread their venomous, bilious, barbaric savagery.

When “Thank God” is the opening line to a terrorist attack, then I’m going to be worried when I hear a voice behind me saying “Allahu Akbar”.

If McCain had been at Fort Hood he could have said “Amen” when Major Hassan said “Allahu Akbar”.

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

So, at Ft Hood, the cry was “Thank god I am killing American soldiers!”?

Thank god I’m blowing myself up!

Thank god I’m flying this plane into this building?

Correction:

“Allahu akbar” is like saying “praise Satan”.

Well... Wiktionary says it either means: "God is most great"; the Muslim takbir, or liturgical proclamation, used as a common form of thanksgiving, expression of faith or war cry. [from 17th c.]  

Maybe he is on to something....

So, is McCain saying, when he dropped bombs on North Vietnam during Operation Rolling Thunder, killing hundreds on the ground, that he hollered, “Thank God”?

It doesn’t mean “Thank God” . It means “Allah is greater”. That is the literal translation.

Allahu = Allah

Akbar = is greater

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takbir

So when an Obama supported Islamo pedo beheads a girl because she had the gall to allow herself to be raped by a 55 year old pedo, he says “Allah is greater” as a way to tell the girl that Allah is greater than her and she will not be allowed to offend the pedo devil.

And shouting “Allahu akbar” just before murdering dozens of innocents is just a coincidental, and the two acts are completely disconnected with one another. As is shouting the same during and after mass murder attacks.

McCain is surrendering further into the embrace of senility and dementia, making it harder for him to camouflage his sold-out-to-the-enemy lurches across the aisle.

I saw a video of a ‘religion of peace’ member aiming at and shooting at an American soldier. The American dissapeared from view quickly, and, thinking that he had killed an infidel, the ROP member yelled their usual fubar akbar thing. The American reappeared, alive. He had just ducked his head down.
My contempt for violent ROPers doubled on the spot. He was not yelling “God bless you, wonderful American.”

Fubar akbar or whatever they yell means “my god is greater (than your god)”

I despise Republicans trying to act like democrats.

It’s time to pull his credit line. He was a POW, then he became a felonious Senator who happens to have an R after his name.

He’s a tool of the jackhole in the WH, and really, that’s the end of it.

Allahu Akbar = Allah is greater. Known as “takbir”, the phrase “Allahu Akbar” is used as a common form of THANKSGIVING, expression of faith or war cry.

Allah = moon god.

Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12 KJV) = Helel Ben Shachar (Isaiah 14:12 in the original Hebrew) = Cresent Moon and Morning Star (actual meaning). The symbol of the Crescent Moon and Morning Star is on top of many mosques as well as on the flags of many Islamic countries.

According to John McCain (RINO-AZ), Allahu Akbar is the same as saying “Thank God”.

So who is this “god” that McCain is thanking and serving, whether McCain knows it or not? I don’t like the implications when I connect the dots.

McCain - the phrase means “God is greater” not “thank God”. But does it matter what they are saying when they are cheering over a missile attack or while cutting off someone’s head? McCain missed the point. They are cheering while killing someone.

True story that happen in Moscow few years ago. One women visited her female friend in her apartment. She was wearing sport suit. Both of them had too much to drink. For some reason the rubber band on the sport pants of the visiting friend was torn. The homeowner told her that her husband is electrician and she can give her some electrical wires to put around the pants to hold them up. Good. The friend went back home very late at night completely drunk. In some dark alley she was approached by two men who attempted to rape her. Suddenly they noticed wires around her waist and was shocked. She, drunk as a skunk, held the wires in her hands and started to scream “allah akhbar”.Two man dropped everything in assumption that she have a bomb strapped around her waist and took off with a speed that could rival Olympic sprinters.
Point is that “allah akhbar” can help sometimes..:-)

It`s the Muslim War Cry in Battle = an atavistic borrowing by the Moslim armies from the early Roman God of War, MARS, since Rome had occupied that region for hundreds of years

“going into battle the Roman soldiers had to shake their spears while shouting ‘Mars vigila’ (”Mars awaken”).
