1. McCain tweet on Iran draws criticism
GeeDee ,   somewhere israel   (02.04.13)
how funny... ahmadinejad wants to be the first iranian in space! (read the news!) so in the end... whats such a scandal in what mccain wrote? hahahahaha... actually mccain seems to be kind of a fortune teller no!?
2. Eeal man
David ,   IL   (02.04.13)
3. John McCain
Harold ,   USA   (02.04.13)
I am against of all state leaders who came and rulled by force but John McCain became unpopular and unrespected by me because of his stupid statement. Once he said bomb bomb Iran and no an unhuman jok. He is too old to represent any US taxpayer and should stay in Arizona and do his real estate business.

look around ,   usa   (02.04.13)
"Amash is a second generation Arab-American of Palestinian Christian and Syrian Greek Orthodox descent.[4] His father is a Palestinian business owner.." Wikipedia. Need I say more? Nonetheless Justin, keep speaking up on behalf of ahmadinejad! What a Joke!
5. Probably not Politically correct ....however...
Galut ia ,   Selah   (02.04.13)
I think ahmadinejad has earnt the roasting
Adam ,   Herndon VA USA   (02.04.13)
Sorry, this story is patently impossible. Everyone's aware that John McCain has no idea what Twitter is! :)
7. What's wrong with that statement?
Eyal ,   Israel USA   (02.04.13)
Hold on, are we supposed to respect Ahmadinejad? He is a monkey and he even looks like one. There is nothing wrong with that, and if there is, then you must be a liberal who voted for Obama.
8. good one for Sen. John McCain
ygalg ,   israel   (02.04.13)
9. McCain's tweet
mikeT ,   jerusalem, israel   (02.04.13)
McCain speaks the truth. Complaint of racism is unjustified. Ahmadinejad is of a much lower developed species than monkeys or apes.
10. Iranians laughing of the holocaust is worse than this
avner ,   buenos aires   (02.04.13)
11. What was racist about the comment.
Ira G. ,   Ra'anana   (02.04.13)
Am I missing something here? We bandy about words like butcher, apartheid, racist when they have no connection with reality. People need to be responsible for the words that come out of their mouths otherwise it's just diarrhea.
12. Is he the 2nd or 3rd monkey
Jay Abouaf ,   Jaffa Israel   (02.04.13)
Mr. Mc Cain, There was no racism in your great observation. The only bigot is Ahmadinejad. He is a violent unjust man, a racist and a bigot. The men who criticize you are weak minded and cowards.
13. why??
Dan   (02.04.13)
Why is he insulting the monkey?
14. McCain in same mindset as all of us but
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (02.04.13)
politicians have to be politically correct today - guess freedom of speech doesn't apply to them.
15. I am sorry
Mira ,   Vienna   (02.04.13)
Ahmadi looks like a monkey, he talks like a monkey, he is a monkey, McCain is right!
16. Don't insult..................................
Mahlon Drumgoole ,   Newark NJ USA   (02.04.13)
It was wrong for John McCain to insult monkeys by comparing them to the crazy Iranian. Monkeys are much more decent.
17. You Go Mr. John Mcain!
Tell it Like It Is, Nothing Racist About A Oppinion? So He And I think he looks LIKE little bearded monkey HA Ha ha LMAO! John Mcain Is A Decorated Nam Vet Just like his chief and commander? Oh Dope b.H.o. NEVER SERVED that's right excuuuuse me!
18. McCain the barbarian
SandRich ,   Bend, OR, USA   (02.04.13)
John McCain has become a disgrace to this country; his attitude needs some serious adjustment, he's appearing to be more than a little senile, and has crossed the line too many times for us to take his comments/position lightly. He is the joke, not his idiotic remarks.
19. I Knew There Was A Reason I Liked McCain!
Ron ,   Seattle USA   (02.04.13)
20. The monkey was WAY cuter and 1000 x SMARTER!!!!!!!
PITA ,   USA   (02.04.13)
Don't offend the monkey.
21. McCain Comment
karmel usa   (02.04.13)
I think monkeys are the ones who should be offended !!
22. Anyone offering criticism of McCain should be investigated..
David ,   Hartford USA   (02.05.13)
by the FBI. The 'leader' of Iran is building a bomb, has notified the world of his desire to see Israel wiped off the planet, and is generally considered to be a so-so politician with vision of grandeur- in short (and he is) a monkey's ass! To the idiot representative who was 'offended', just whose side are you on? Have you had personal contact with this monkey? Does this Iranian monkey send you cash that you stash in your freezer? What is your connection to him? The entire civilized world considers him a total nut-job, and you are telling a senior US Senator he's out of line. My friend, you are out of your mind! How did YOU get elected??
23. John insulted the space monkey
Ron ,   LA   (02.05.13)
The monkey deserves better than to be compared to Ajad. I like McCain, always have.
24. Achmadenahandjob
Don ,   Indy USA   (02.05.13)
How is it racist to call him a monkey? Monkeys have more sence. An insult to monkeys.
25. Just FYI
Don ,   Indy USA   (02.05.13)
Just for everyone in Israel, our colleges and universities are LOADED with muslim professors with tenure who brain wash our children daily against the Jews. That's why I just don't understand why Jews in the USA vote for these liberal democrats who really hate Israel. Even Senator Chuck Schummer for example.
26. Monkeys of the world, unite!
Jerusalem Jew ,   Jerusalem   (02.05.13)
McCain made a very big mistake: by comparing Ahmadinajad to monkeys: he insults all the monkeys. This is unacceptable. It's much more acceptable to compare Ahmadinajad to Turkey's Erdagdegan.
27. What would Darwin and Atheist say?
Pat ,   Sydney   (02.05.13)
Is it not true that we are all taught that human is from Monkey (primate)? So what is it wrong to say Ahmadinejad is like monkey?
28. Amha ding dong
David Asleson ,   Minneapolis USA   (02.05.13)
He does look like a monkey!!!!
29. Well done Mr McCain
Haim ,   TA   (02.05.13)
Although it might be considered a bit offensive to that poor monkey to be compared with Ahmadinejad.
30. Mr McCain you evidently have a good sense of Humour!
Son Of Cyrus ,   UK   (02.05.13)
Like most of us ordinary citizens of the World! Your comment about bomb Islamic Republic is also justified if they plan a build a Nuke Bomb. Keep up the good work, thank you!
