Allen West rips Obama on Israel

The more I see of Allen West, the more I like.

For those of you who missed President Obama's speech on the Middle East, you can find the full text here.

Shortly afterward, Representative Allen West (R-Fl) put out this email statement ripping Obama's attempt to browbeat Israel back to indefensible borders (Hat Tip: Cheryl H).
Congressman Allen West Response to President Barack Obama's Call for a Two State Solution in Israel

(WASHINGTON) --- Congressman Allen West (FL-22) released this statement today:

"Today’s endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.

From the moment the modern day state of Israel declared statehood in 1948, to the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden access to their holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City, controlled by Jordan’s Arab army.

The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world’s Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism.

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.

In short, the Hamas-run Palestinian state envisioned by President Obama would be devastating to Israel and the world’s 13.3 million Jews. It would be a Pavlovian style reward to a declared Islamic terrorist organization, and an unacceptable policy initiative.

America should never negotiate with the Palestinian Authority- which has aligned itself with Hamas. Palestine is a region, not a people or a modern state. Based upon Roman Emperor Hadrian's declaration in 73 AD, the original Palestinian people are the Jewish people.

It's time for the American people to stand by our strongest ally, the Jewish State of Israel, and reject this foreign policy blunder of epic proportions.

While the winds of democracy may blow strong in the Middle East, history has demonstrated that gaps in leadership can lead to despotic regimes. I have questions for President Obama: 'Who will now lead in Egypt?' and 'Why should American taxpayers provide foreign aid to a nation where the next chapter in their history may be the emergence of another radical Islamic state?'

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.”

It warms this history student's heart to see an American politician not only know so much, but put it to such excellent use!

The Israelis have more right to the land they live on than most Americans do to the land we took from its first inhabitants.

Wow I'm very impressed with wests statements. Its good to hear factual history and common sense coming from alot of politicians republican and democrats with the exclusion of obama. It seems obama is in a world of his own and the majority know the truth about israel. It was amazing hearing bibi speak to congress, such a warm reception and many standing ovations. People can distort history as much as they want, the truth is in the history.
