Allen West Confronted by Koran-Wielding CAIR Executive
The Shark Tank ^ | 02/21/2011 | Javier Manjarres

Posted on 02/21/2011 7:47:22 PM PST by Allthegoodusernamesaregone

At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use before telling Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt” with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”

Eisenhower wasn't a great General. His subordinates made him look like one. Patton, Bradley and Beetle Smith did all the work.

He wasn't a great president either. He fed off of Truman's mess in Korea, and benefited from a decent (not great) economy in the '50s.

He was average as best. Lucky is more like it.

From Wikipedia regarding the incident that resulted in his retirement...

At his hearing, West had been asked by his defense attorney if he would fire his pistol again under similar circumstances. He replied: "If it's about the lives of my men and their safety, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can," he said

That is why I worked for and supported Allen West for Congress.
They were talking about Gov. Scott Walker for President on the other thread.
Allen West is living proof of the greatness of America.
Allen West knows the enemy as he knows himself.
That POS Hasan who gunned down our brave soldiers in cold blood has still not been charged.
The Secretary of Defense “ doesn’t want to go there “ when asked if this was a terrorist attack! They can’t even call the enemy the “ enemy “ when they kill screaming allasuckbar on our own military base.

As you can see from Mr. West’s response to the practitioner of the religion of peace he has no qualms about telling it like it is. He has faced the Islamopsycopaths on the battle field and he is not afraid.

ALLEN WEST FOR PRESIDENT !

“I was just telling someone that the only way to beat Islam is to turn on the lights and show the world what it really is.”

It’s unfortunate the the Democratic Party and it’s media allies have chosen to align themselves with radical Islam. One thinks they can just use the other, but history tells us it will be the Democrats that get used, not Islam.

And we will pay a very dear price in blood for this, eventually.

Why on earth would you want to waste his talent by wishing him into the VP spot? This man is the real deal.

He would run circles around any candidate (including Palin.)

That’s pretty cool. I am a broker and in a business where I basically live in the local MLS, and it is not uncommon to see comments such as “Blue Ribbon Schools”, and “low (municipality) taxes”, etc. I can see some clever agent adding “Congressional District of Allen West” to the listing remarks. I would!

What you’re describing is liberals being ill-informed idiots.

They believe all sorts of magical things.

This doesn’t mean moslems have fooled them, it means they’re imbeciles who fall for every nutty idea that comes up the pike.

I’m referring to moslems tricking (rational) people into believing their pap. I don’t think they’re accomplishing that feat.

The TRUTH about Islam: 7 Ways for a Christian to Respond

2 Timothy 3:13
"But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."

These words of Paul are clearly prophetic. Writing just months before he was martyred in Rome, Paul reminds the church that as time progresses, the influence of Satan on the earth will grow worse and worse and deception will intensify. If that was true nearly 2000 years ago, it is even more true today! Never before in human history have we had access to so much information: television, cable, satellite, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, etc. Yet the more information we have, the more avenues for deception Satan has. There is a fundamental difference between information and truth. Truth is information; but information is not always true.

To that end, it is important that we filter all that we hear from the media through the lens of Truth-God's Word. This is especially true in light of the current circumstances surrounding the U.S. war on terrorism. As I hear the "experts" speak about the similarities between Islam and Christianity and the supposed common foundation these religions share, I am disheartened, to say the least. I understand the precarious position that our government leaders are in. They have to be careful not to offend Muslim-Americans. And I also understand that not all Muslims strictly follow the teachings of the Koran. That is, not all Muslims are "fundamentalists." But to say that Islam is a religion of peace is simply not accurate. Even a cursory reading of the Koran (Holy Book of Islam) and the Hadith (the sacred sayings of Mohammed) demonstrates that this popular and growing religion is not about peace. It is about war--war with Christianity and Judaism.

While Muslims acknowledge several "holy books," including their own version of the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel, the Koran is clearly the final, authoritative word in Islam. According to Muslim clerics the teachings of the Koran supercede all other books. Furthermore, the sacred sayings of Mohammed outside of the Koran (called the "Hadith") as passed down orally and recorded by Al Bukhari, are also authoritative. The Hadith serves as an expansion or elaboration on the Koran. As proof that Islam, which means "submission" in Arabic, is about war and not peace, consider the following quotes from the Koran and Hadith.

Mohammed was once asked: What is the best deed for the Muslim next to believing in Allah and His prophet? His answer was: "To participate in Jihad in Allah's cause." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 1:25) Jihad is an Arabic word that means, "struggle." In Islam, Jihad is the struggle for the cause of Allah using all means available, including violence. This kind of Jihad is often referred to as a "Holy War," and in fact the terms Jihad and holy war have become almost synonymous.

Mohammed once said, "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, none has the right to be worshipped but Allah." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 4:196)
And Mohammed also said, "The person who participates in holy battles in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward or booty (i.e. if he survives) or will be admitted to paradise (i.e. if he is killed)." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 1:35)

In the Koran, Allah orders all Muslims to terrorize non-Muslims.
"Strike terror in the hearts of the enemies of God and your enemies." (Surah 8:60)
"Fight them and God will punish them by your hands." (Surah 9:14)
"I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them. It is not ye who slew them; it was God." (Surah 8:13-17)
"And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter..." (Surah 2:191)
"And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah..." (Surah 2:193)
"O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard against evil." (Surah 9:123)
"Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall." (Surah 61:4)
"O ye who believe (i.e. Muslims), take not the Jews or the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you who turns to them for friendship is of them." (Surah 5:51)

Clearly it is not true to say that Islam promotes peace. Does this mean, then, that all Muslims are promoters of violence, hatred and terror? Of course not. Just as not all Christians closely follow the teachings of God's Word (unfortunately!), not all Muslims adhere to the teachings of the Koran (fortunately!). Many Muslims are more liberal or "moderate" and choose not to obey the teachings of Mohammed relative to Jihad. But make no mistake, since its inception in the early seventh century AD, Islam has been about conquering Jews and Christians and turning everyone to Allah. Islam was born in 622 AD when Mohammed fled from Mecca to Medina under persecution because of his radical views. The conflict between Mohammed and the Jews only intensified over the next 10 years until Mohammed's death in 632, and the tension between Israel and Islam has not died down to this day.

How should Christians respond to Muslims and Islam in general? First, love them as Christ loves them. Second, pray that their eyes will be open to the deception that has them captive. Third, be a genuine friend to them. Fourth, if they seem passive or moderate in their adherence to the Koran, engage in a non-threatening dialogue with them by asking thought-provoking questions like, "Can you explain what the Koran means when it tells Muslims to fight against non-Muslims." Because of the actions of Muslim extremists, moderate Muslims are more open to hearing the true Gospel now than at any other time in our history! Fourth, be respectful of their views. Remember that they have just as much a right in America to believe in Allah and Mohammed as we do to believe in God and Christ. Fifth, if they seem vigilant in their adherence to the Koran, be aware that they view you as their enemy. Sixth, recognize that the very real possibility exists that the current conflict between America and the terrorists may ignite (if it hasn't already!) into a full-blown holy war between Islamic fundamentalists and Jews/Christians. When or if this happens, many "moderates" within the Islamic community will quickly become "fundamentalists." Seventh, remember this promise from the Word of God:
"Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when itcomes; For the LORD will be your confidence..." (Prov. 3:25-26)

So why post that you want him to be Palin's VP? Makes no sense. I bet even Palin would endorse him for the top job rather than run herself.

Why is FR so Palincentric? Every damn thread has her in it, and blind to the reality that there are other outstanding conservative candidates without all the baggage.

I bet even Palin herself knows this and will choose to help the cause by supporting someone who is the real deal. Someone like Allen West.

Col. West was a guest on our morning drive show about two months before the election.

It takes a lot to impress me, especially from a politician, but I must say I was astounded by Col. West's knowledge of history and ability to communicate that knowledge.

I believe we have a real leader here!
