Bill Maher took on his panel on Friday night when none of them wanted to admit that the recent terror attack in London was born out of Islamic terrorism. Maher’s retort? Why don’t terrorists ever say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Allahu Akbar?”

MAHER: Well let’s not pretend that it has nothing to do with Islam the religion.

MENSCH: It doesn’t.

MAHER: It has nothing to do with Islam?

MENSCH: It has nothing to do–

MAHER: That’s very interesting.

MENSCH: It has nothing to do with Islam the same way Timothy McVeigh had nothing to do with Roman Catholicism

MAHER: Because every time some bomb goes off, before it goes off, somebody yells, ‘Allahu Akbar.’ I never heard anybody go, ‘Merry Christmas!’

[LAUGHTER]

MAHER: This one’s for the Flying Nun! [Bullet sounds]
