Since he's seen islamic extremism up close and personal, I would pay attention to what this man has to say. THIS is the man we should hope eventually becomes our leader. I'd go through a door with him anytime, anywhere, in front or behind, doesn't matter. I know he'd do the right thing.
Compare J Street’s stance on Israel’s with West’s.
In 2009, he wrote: We face the resurrection of the original enemy of the Jewish people, a resurgent Islamic fundamentalism evidencing itself in totalitarian, imperialist design. This time it has morphed itself using 21st century technologies still retaining a 7th century mentality, utilizing terrorism internationally to promote its perverse aims.
One of those objectives is the destruction of the State the world agreed to support in creating, Israel. In keeping with previous traditions established by Muhammad, the modern Islamic warriors promote Taquiyya, lying to promote Islam. They also, just as Muhammad, use the Treaty of Hudabiyya as a model to delay and deceive their enemies until they are ready to strike. Under Yasser Arafat some 200 agreements were never honored.
Why would we trust any word coming from the mouth of the psychopathic delusional leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? The mad mullahs, insane imams, and combative clerics are again calling for the supremacy of Islam, no different from earlier centuries.
The bottom line: Allen West loves Israel. J Street does not.
