A Defense Not Often Heard

While campaigning for Congress, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West defended Israel in a style that is not often heard. He's now the first African-American Republican Congressman from Florida in years.

During the 2010 mid-terms elections, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West attended an event commemorating the first full year of weekly rallies in support of Israel held at Broward Boulevard and Northeast 3rd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.

West was running for Congress but was not shy to offer his fierce opinion about the State of Israel, it's brave citizens and the hypocrisy of the Arab countries supported by the Western World.

West served in the Army in Iraq and was a civilian adviser in Afghanistan. He achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army but retired after an investigation of his conduct during the interrogation of a suspected terrorist detainee in Taji, Iraq.

He was elected as as the first African-American Republican Congressman from Florida since Josiah T. Walls in 1876.

We're Pround to Have Him as Our Congressman
Allen West is a treasure to South Florida—and to our country. He's a solid uncompromising conservative who is not at all intimidated by the opposition. His position on Israel is totally in line with the rest of his views—supporting what is right and ethical—and he's fearless about expressing them. He deserves our strong support.

Congressman Lt Col Allen West is an amazing and strong person who is sincerely devoted and dedicated to the ideals and principles of this country and to Eretz Yisrael as well.

But, this is vital, and I dont want to be here in 2012 posting "if only you listend"

Reach out to your Congressman and Senators.. be firm in your message and do no be shy or ashamed.

Tell them, birtzono natlah mihem unesana lanu!! G-d gave us the land.. Nachalas olam, mi'am olam mi'elokei olam!

If you will keep to this message, re-affirm that a "arab state in the heart of israel posses a danger to the entire nation of 6 million!"

They will listen.. tell this to those running for office, you will not vote for them till they stand strong!

I recommend you search Corey Poitier, he is running for Congress and is on the same wave lengthg is Congressman West.

Especially now, when there is a tremendous push for a so called "Paslastinian State"

Hmmm...
I appreciate his Zionistic passion and conviction, however, he bases his argument upon a book which not people (Jew or non-Jew) recognises as divine. As such, he can only appeal to people who already agree with him.

The Rebbe always told the Israeli politicians & ambassadors to the UN that they should quote the Torah when it comes to our rights to the land. Back in the seventies he told the Israeli UN ambassador to read from Chayei Sara regarding chevron.
So you are basically diagreeing with what the Rebbe told us to do all these years.

How can you advocate an intermarriage? In any case, they're both already married.

Almost all Americans do regard the Torah as divine.

I wish our presdent was on the same page as Lt. Col West. However, it appears that he is on the other side of the fence. God help us until we can get him and all of his muslim buddies out of office and even the country. We are still a christain nation and should all stand behind men like West.

Such a courageous, intelligent, articulate man with leadership qualities should be the sought-after speaker on our college campuses, on talk shows and cable news, and eventually at the top of the list for leading our country. Thank you.

having served in the Middle East for seven years I totally agree with his outlook .We in the western world do not do enough to support Israel in their continual fight against arab extremists.Arab nations should ask themselves why Arabs continue to live in Israel, A better life maybe?

America was founded on Christian principals and I beleive if a true poll were to be taken it Still is a Christian nation. This man is so special and so very correct that he needs all of our prayers for boldness and protection.

If you want to do what is right.......give the US back to the Native Americans. These kind of notions are always easier than they seem. I am Jewish and pro Israel but understand the conundrum in which politicians find themselves.

When he was approached about Obamas Birth certificate being a Forged Document by the Sheriff Arpio the Posse looking into this matter they already had reliable witnesses and info as well as solid evidence. But West said No Keep me in the Loop so to speak to be his personal guard dog of the constitution ?? NO Thanks West should be working on it as well. Then if theres nothing well then its over BUT Theres Tons of stuff and it far far from being Over as for as what Obama thinks Nope eventually they are going to Nail Him, and they just had another good person join them with intelligence and influence. so don't give up Never Weaken Never Give Up.
