West: 'Second Holocaust' Looms if US Doesn't Champion Israel

The United States needs to back Israel fully to avoid a tragedy befalling its ally, says freshman Rep. Allen West. “You’re looking at a second Holocaust” if Israel doesn’t “know they can trust and depend upon the stars and stripes . . . to provide them support,” the Florida Republican said during a town hall meeting in West Palm Beach.

He made the comments several days ago, but they didn’t get much attention until spreading on the Internet Monday, The Palm Beach Post reports.

Iran isn’t the only nation that Israel has to worry about, West said. “What happens if, all of a sudden, Syrians don’t focus on fighting each other, but focus on fighting Israel?”

The rise of radical Islam in Egypt also represents a threat to Israel, he said.

If a second Holocaust occurs, “there will be no spiritual homeland for Christians to return back to,” West said. “There will be no homeland for the Jewish people in the United States of America for their birthright. This is a dangerous situation, and we have to take the Iranians for their word.”

Also at the meeting, West warned against raising taxes on the wealthy. “You can tax people to 110 percent, and it will still not make a dent” in the budget deficit, he said.
