We are witnessing an embarrassing meltdown right before our very eyes. John McCain equating the cries of "Allahu Akbar" after a jihadi attack with 'Thank G-d" requires a complete break with reality.
I have never heard Christian or Jew (or any non-Muslim) scream "Thank G-d" after beheading someone or blowing up a school, or slaughtering Muslims on their way to mosque. "Allahu akbar" is a war cry, and John McCain is an idiot.
The blood curdling cry of "allahu akbar" "strikes terror in the hearts of the unbelievers."
Why isn't McCain the poster boy for the Christians and religious minorities being persecuted, oppressed and slaughtered under Muslim rule? He is a disgrace.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday for questioning members of a Syrian opposition groups' use of the phrase "Allahu Akbar" after what Kilmeade said "looks like a fighter jet being shot out of the sky."
“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said.
McCain criticized Kilmeade for his skepticism of the phrase, which means "God is greater" or "God is the greatest" in Arabic.
“Would you have a problem with an American person 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 they are moderates.”
McCain said on NBC's "Today" show he would support President Barack Obama's request for action, but didn't agree with the president that any military force should "be designed to be limited in duration and scope." McCain said he's hoping for resolution of intervention that includes authority to degrade Syria's air defenses.
