While president obama rings muslim brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi to congratulate him on his Egyptian victory… Congressman Allen West still sees the danger inherent in radical islam and calls for the president to cut off foreign aid to Egypt and repudiate the muslim brotherhood.
A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.
Congressman Allen West
Won’t happen. If obama had been president in 1987, he wouldn’t have yelled “..Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”. He would have said “Gorby, congrats on such a sturdy structure, dude”.
That two such men are in our government gives my mind some peace… where the one scares the beejebus out of me, the other makes me feel proud and, yes, safer. If only the tables were turned and West were the president and obama the congressman…
