Rep. Allen West Confronts Islamic Activists

Tuesday, 22 Feb 2011 10:09 AM

The Muslim faith has been responsible for atrocities throughout history so don’t try “to blow sunshine up my butt” about attacks on Americans, Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., told an Islamic activist who tried to confront him at a town hall meeting. West was responding to a challenge from Nezar Hamze, executive director of the South Florida chapter of the Council of American Islamic Relations.

Story continues below video.

Hamze appeared at the town hall meeting at St. Mark’s Catholic School and, with a copy of the Koran in hand, demanded to know where in the Koran it says to carry out attacks against Americans.

“Of course it doesn’t say attack America or attack Americans,” West quickly responded to the cheers of the audience. “The book was written around the eighth or ninth century, so America wasn’t even around. But … there is talk about killing infidels.”

West then ticked off a series of dates that marked Muslim atrocities and added, “Major Hasan shouted Allahu Akbar, the people who flew those planes shouted Allahu Akbar, I’ve been on the battlefield my friend, don’t try to blow sunshine up my butt.”

West’s further comments were then drowned out by the cheers and jeers of the supportive audience of about 400 in Boynton Beach.
