McCain actually takes a stand against Islamophobia? When it suits his political agenda?

In any case glad someone stated the obvious.:

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

by

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.

    Mea culpa, my good fellow. Indeed Jonny boy has been quite naughty when it comes to certain issues including islamaphobia and war.

    I don’t trust this poker player one bit.

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    search John McCain+Islamophobia, you’ll find it.

  • Nabilah Doherty

    Wow, I am happily surprised at his reasonable response. Alhamdolilleh!

  • Jekyll

    When did he address Islamophobia per se ?

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    Ummm…yeah, not everyone who disagrees with Islam is an Islamophobe. What’s that have to do with McCain being a flip-flopper on the issue of Islamophobia?

  • PepsPersson

    The only reason why McCain call these people “moderates” is because he is lobbying for a war with Syria and later Iran. I promise you that in a couple of years he will call real moderate muslims (not the ones in the video) in Iran for “terrorists” and “jihadists” so he and his neoconservative and radical zionist colleges can bomb that country back to stone age.

    John McCain is no “nice guy”…

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    Yes, really.

  • Fox-News

    This is part of the anti-Islam groups strategy i.e., to make anything that is or part of Islam even in name as something that should be feared and kept away from. Step by step they are increasing their benchmark.

  • Mohamed Al Saadoon

    McCain is pretty moderate when it comes to his views on the Middle East……

    Well….as Moderate as someone in the GOP can be anyway.

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    McCain is the biggest flip-flopper in US history. He’s Islamophobic when he needs to be and isn’t when he needs to be, that’s not principal.

    Unfortunately given the extreme anti Muslim bigotry in much of the Republican Party, this might actually hurt him politically. We just know that right wing Islamophobes will be attacking him over this.

  • wjshelton

    … which in and of itself is a way of expressing “Thank God” or “Thank you, God”…

  • mindy1

    Perfect response. 😉
