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.
Fortunately, I believe that the Messiah is coming and all things will be made right. Baruch HaShem

God Bless You West

And now may the Lord bless you, and may the Lord keep you, and may the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and may the Lord be gracious unto you.

May GOD protect Lt. Col West

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.

February 21, 2011 3:02 pm

Well spoken. He sounds like a brilliant man. I wish him the best and will follow him in his political career. Hope to see him in the national arena soon.

God has Politicians also.......

God has strategically placed this man in his position to uphold the Laws of the Lord! God be with him!!

February 15, 2011 2:57 pm

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?

I am truly inspired by this congressman from Fla. I only with he stature would rub off on all his members of this Congress.
He is truly a man for Israel and the USA. May he be blessed
with long life and the strength to carry on………….in his crusade.

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.

February 12, 2011 10:08 pm

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.

What do you think you know about the Lubavitch. My son and his six grown children are Lubavitch. Why don’t you spend a little time in Crown Heights B’lyn. and see what little you know about the Lubavitch thinking.

We could use this man as president, this man is what our country was built on, God Bless him

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

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.

January 20, 2011 11:24 pm

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.

sounds like the rebbes shitos

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.

wow this guy is pro israel there are lots of jews that are liberals and they think that arab’s are good and that israelis shouldnt come to israel they should leave

We're Pround to Have Him as Our Congressman
January 20, 2011 7:19 pm

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.

you go guy!
