Tea Party Rep. Allen West has just issued a response to Obamas announcement that he backs the Palestinians demand that Israel redraw its borders to where they were in 1967. Not only did he call the move the most egregious foreign policy decision the administration has made, but he also feared this could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.
The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the worlds Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism, West said in an e-mail.
Resorting to the pre-1967 borders would mean a full withdrawal by the Israelis from the West Bank and the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.
He concluded with some harsh criticisms: President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations. The President should focus on the real obstacle to security- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to eliminate Israel and the Jewish people.
West has been an outspoken supporter of Israel in the past. Back in January he delivered a speech at the Americans Against Hate Pro-Israel Conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL:
West wasnt the only one to respond with harsh criticism. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the 1967 lines indefensible.
LTC Allen West is a man of HONOR, another attribute sorely missing on the political landscape today.

Neither candidate sadly...has thrown their hat in but there would be a far better chance of beating Obama if West takes the lead.
Sign me up !!
People would get that confused with this fool—Kanye West—and who needs that.
Go West, young man. Go West!
It won’t be the end of Israel it will be the beginning of the end of the USA.

Obama’s call for Israel to adopt the 1967 borders would only mean the beginning of the end for Israel if the Israelis agreed. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it abundantly clear (5/20) that Israel would not do what President Obama suggested. If Americans think this is just a problem for Israel and it’s neighbors to somehow work out, they are badly mistaken. Obama is effectively igniting war between Israel and it’s many enemies that could end in a nuclear conflagration.
I found this to be a great resource.
