Allen West's Response to Request That He Cut Ties With Anti-Islamic Extremists: "NUTS!"

Categories: WTFlorida
Allen-West-flag.jpg
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent a letter to Rep. Allen West at the beginning of the month with a request -- quit palling around with Islamophobes.

The letter, from CAIR South Florida Executive Director Nezar Hamze, specifically asked West to cut his ties with Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Joe Kaufman, and Joyce Kaufman, among others.

In classic Allen West elegance, he responded to the letter -- under his official congressional letterhead -- with one word: "NUTS!"

Check out the letter in its entirety after the jump:

allen-west-nuts.jpg

Hamze tells the Pulp he thinks West's use of "NUTS!" is likely a reference to the phrase of World War II lore, which translates to "go to hell."

Hamze's official response: "Allen West continues his baseless rhetoric and schoolboy insults."

Gene Robinson – President – Republican Club – Margate, Florida, U.S.A.

Hello Gene,

I just got back from HAITI, visiting and meeting top distributors like VALERIO CANEZ, S.A., and top members of the future parliamentary cabinet, such as the President of P.A.I.N. group, Agr Hebert Docteur, who is being picked as the equivalent of Minister of the Interior. I had the honor and privilege of staying “safely” with their families, in Port Au Price, as well as In Jeremie. Thank you for the opportunity to briefly explain at our next meeting, how we can provide a “sustainable working culture and business opportunities” in Haiti, and also provide thousands of job-opportunities for Florida businesses to participate in Haiti. I will be preparing a Delegation Report to the Broward County Commissioners, as well as to the office of Gov. Rick Scott, of how we can increase job opportunities in Florida, by doing business with Haiti.

But today, Sept. 11th, 2011, is an important date, and that is the reason why I am writing to you, a fellow American, and who’s father, like myself, was privileged to personally know and love, Ronald Reagan.

What would President Reagan have said to me, if he had seen the “Haitian spirit of survival” and their will to do business, every day, under the worst of conditions, and the constant reminder of misery ?? “Helping them is our duty as Americans, to do business, & not thru charity….because someday, they too will be Americans”

What would President Reagan have said to me after reading what Rep. Allen West’s views on not allowing the MUSLIM faith to set up in America, while allowing their religious Koran-practicing leaders in Iran and Syria, access to constantly trying to “kill the American Dream”…..which they finally did, 3,047 innocent American victims, on this day, 10 years ago ?? “They are not Americans, they are religious fanatics that are not welcomed to be part of the American Dream”

Recently, a Syrian-based, Koran-practitioner of the Islamic faith, by the name of RAED BAKOUNI, accused my company, TORRES & TORRES, of “fraudulent returns”, on the City of Margate’s Commissioner’s Campaign Report. Mr. Bakouni also used my image to personally attack my name by allowing CHANNEL 7’s HELP ME HOWARD/Patrick Frazier, and accuse me, while promoting his business, JIFFI PRINT, INC. Mr. Bakouni is using the public office of STATE OF FLORIDA’S ELECTIONS COMMISSION, as a means of collecting an incorrect amount invoiced to TORRES & TORRES, supposedly being $675.86. Not only is this an “incorrect invoice” to my company, TORRES & TORRES, but has nothing to do with Mr. Bakouni’s “CAMPAIGN FUNDS FRAUDULANT RETURN” accusation!!

What does this all mean ? Should we allow a Syrian-based resident, that also has U.S. residency, and a practicing member of the Islamic-Koran religion, be able to have the same rights as any American ?? Should we question, and investigate his business, JIFFI PRINT, as a possible “SYRIAN-BASED-CELL” ??

And should I, a former Cuban-Refugee, of Christian beliefs, and of the Roman Catholic faith, …and very, very proud to be an “American”, turn the other cheek, or look the other way while another attack on America is being planned, right in front of us ??

Reagan would have said: “Not on my watch”…and I would have to agree.

No religion has the right, to have the same rights as “any other decent and God-fearing religions”, here in America, if they were responsible for the training of 4 religious Islamic fanatics, to attack America with 4 aircrafts filled with innocent people, and cause so much bloodshed, tears, and a life-long hurt, in America’s hearts.

Not now, not 10 years ago,…not ten thousand light-years from now. Never !

See you Sept. 22; will be in Orlando that weekend, 23rd and 24th Sept./2011, for the GOP “chats”.I

Thanks, Gene. Manny Torres

TV reporter’s advice to GOP candidate West draws heatby George Bennett | May 14th, 2010 A WPTV Channel 5 reporter’s advice to Republican congressional candidate Allen West on his TV appearances has been deemed “inconsistent” with station policy and drawn fire from the campaign of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton. Klein supporters were alarmed recently when they saw a YouTube video of an event in which West introduced WPTV reporter Angela Sachitano and said she “does our media relations.”Sachitano has no formal role with the West campaign, but she and her husband are friends with the candidate, West campaign manager Josh Grodin said. West said in an e-mail that Sachitano “provides me insights into how to improve my media appearance/presence and conduct of interviews.”Sachitano has covered a handful of stories involving Klein and West, including a recent report on the political ramifications of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.When West opened his campaign headquarters in Deerfield Beach last month, a video posted on YouTube showed him introducing a variety of campaign staffers and volunteers, including Sachitano.“Angela Sachitano, who does our media relations, has done such a great job in helping me to develop that presence, so that when I go on MSNBC, you notice I didn’t smile with those folks, because you have to know how to project the right type of presence, so Angela thank you,” West says in the clip.West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, said later that Sachitano’s husband, a former Army captian, was an early volunteer on West’s losing 2008 campaign against Klein.Angela Sachitano wouldn’t comment and referred questions to WPTV News Director Jeff Brogan.Said Brogan: “Through her husband Angela has a personal friendship with Allen West. While we have no reason to believe that relationship has negatively impacted her work as a journalist we did find her involvement with this campaign inconsistent with our policy. We’ve taken the appropriate action to address the situation.”Brogan’s statement didn’t elaborate on the “appropriate action.”Klein campaign spokeswoman Sarah Rothschild blasted West.“To have a high profile member of the media personally advising Allen West, while that individual is also simultaneously reporting on the campaign, is beyond what is acceptable. Of course, unethical behavior from Allen West and his campaign is becoming the norm. South Florida residents deserve fair and unbiased coverage of the news and West is trying to undermine that.”

Qur'an (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.Unbelievers are described by Muhammad (in the Qur'an) as "the vilest of animals" and "losers."  Christians and Jews are hated by Allah to the extent that they are destined for eternal doom as a result of their beliefs.  It would make no sense for Muhammad to then recommend them to be taken in as friends by Muslims.  In fact, the Qur'an plainly commands believers not to take unbelievers as friends

Even if some of the inventions you credit Muslims with developing are legit, Muslims/Islam have added NOTHING in the past 800 years to the fields of science, literature, the arts, etc. The reason for that is that Islam has a built-in mechanism that UNDERMINES intellectual thought.

EXAMPLE: Muslims had some early advances in the science of ANATOMY but they were prohibited by Islamic Law from putting that knowledge into ILLUSTRATED form, because they considered it "blasphemy".

Here is a great book you need to read for more details on the intellectual STAGNATION that Islam has suffered in the past 800 YEARS:

http://www.amazon.com/Closing-...

THE CLOSING OF THE MUSLIM MIND: HOW INTELLECTUAL SUICIDE CREATED THE MODERN ISLAMIST CRISIS-------------------PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FROM AMAZON.COM:

"Robert R. Reilly’s eye-opening book masterfully explains the frightening behavior coming out of the Islamic world. Terrorism, he shows, is only one manifestation of the spiritual pathology of Islamism.   Reilly uncovers the root of our contemporary crisis: a pivotal struggle waged within the Muslim world nearly a millennium ago. In a heated battle over the role of reason, the side of irrationality won. The deformed theology that resulted, Reilly reveals, produced the spiritual pathology of Islamism, and a deeply dysfunctional culture.   The Closing of the Muslim Mind solves such puzzles as:

* why the Arab world stands near the bottom of every measure of human development

* why scientific inquiry is nearly dead in the Islamic world

* why Spain translates more books in a single year than the entire Arab world has in the past thousand years

* why some people in Saudi Arabia still refuse to believe man has been to the moon"

CAIR is a Saudi-funded, radical front group with numerous STRONG links to Islamic TERRORIST groups like Hamas. After CAIR was implicated in the HLF TERROR-FUNDING trial, the FBI terminated all cooperative relations with the Saudi-funded stealth jihadists. Here is a group of MODERATE Muslims COMMENDING the FBI for REJECTING pro-Sharia CAIR:

http://www.islamicpluralism.or...

"American Muslims Commend FBI for Rejection of CAIR"

We undersigned American Muslims, have long known the true character of CAIR and its allies. Therefore:

* We observe their commitment to radical aims, their attempts to chill free speech by calling critics of radical Islam “Islamophobes,” and their false, ugly accusations against moderate American Muslims who disagree with their agenda.

* We reject any claim that CAIR and its supporters are legitimate civil liberties advocates.

* We congratulate the FBI for adopting a firmer attitude toward CAIR, as a defense of Americans of all faiths from the menace of radical Islam, including Muslims of all backgrounds—Sunni, Shia, Sufi, secular, etc.

------------------------

CAIR is NOT a MODERATE Muslim group...Virginia congressman Frank Wolf is calling for an investigation to determine whether CAIR's generous FUNDING from Wahhabist Saudi sheikhs requires CAIR to register as the AGENT of a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT.

Congressman Wolf has the FACTS on his side, so hopefully these terrorist-supporting Jihadists at CAIR will soon be officially REGISTERED as an agent of the Saudi government. CAIR has already lost its TAX-EXEMPT status with the IRS because they have failed to report their overseas donations (most likely because it would increase the chances of having to register as SAUDI-FUNDED AGENTS).

The Prophets, too, among us come to teach,

Are one with those from the pulpit preach;

They pray, and slay, and pass away, and yet

Our ills are as the pebbles on the beach.

Islam does not have a monopoly on truth.~ Abul 'aLa al-Maarri, an 11th century blind Arab poet and critic of Islam (The Luzumiyyat - Religion and Superstition, verse 35, The Prophets and The Priests)

"That Muhammad could predict certain events does not prove that he was a prophet: he may have been able to guess successfully, but this does not mean that he had real knowledge of the future. And certainly the fact that he was able to recount events from the past does not prove that he was a prophet, because he could have read about those events in the Bible and, if he was illiterate, he could still have had the Bible read to him."~ Muhammad al-Warraq, a 9th century skeptic and critic of Islam and the prophet Muhammad."From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk, devised his own heresy. Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration."~ St. John of Damascus, an Syrian Arabian Christian of the early 8th century and critic of Islam

Why do people always drag Christians into their arguments? Stay on topic and take responsibility for your own thoughts. I've never been told to kill anyone! I was taught that self defense was the only reason I might have to take a life. I hope and pray that never happens. I was also taught to love everyone and to share the gospel. Jesus died on a cross for our sins and offers us the gift of eternal life. I can love Muslims all day long till the cows come home, but they are not taught the same. Unless they become Christians and learn a new way of thinking they are going to continue in their beliefs. I hope and pray for their salvation just like I do for everyone else. God is big enough for all of our differences! : )

Your statement supports the fact that Islam's teachings (was it Mo or allah???) preaches hate and violence against unbelievers.  A statistical analysis I read showed that only about 13% or so was religion, the rest related to hate, fighting and subjugating the unbeliever.  Islam is a vile evil religion/ideology much like Nazism or Communnism. Yes, I've read the Quran in its entirety.  Suras 9-5, 9-29 and 5-51 plus many many more Suras tell me the Quran and Islam is seditious to the US Constitution (Slay and fight the unbelievers).  What a garbage religion/ideology.

The Quran is only 1400 years old. It is not a work of fiction since 1.4 billion Muslims take it quite seriously. They take it seriously enough that they kill people for it. These are the words that they read and follow.

Since there is more Islamic Terrorism happening in America in the past two years, it would be wise to read the Quran and undestand their thinking process. "It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle." - Sun Tzu

Model,

If you studied the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and then read the Quran, you would see that Christianity and Islam are diametrically opposed in their teachings, Islam hate and violence against unbelievers; and Christianity, love and forgiveness, even love of enemies.  Christianity teaches to spread the Gospel (under no compulsion); Islam spread by the sword; pagans were given the option of converting or death, Christians and Jews were given the option of converting or paying the Jizah, a tax burden only on non Muslims and second class citizens.Islam contradicts Christianity in all its teachings.

You apologists for RADICAL Islam love to try dredging up "moral equivalency" between ANCIENT practices like the Inquisition, Crusades & witch hunts and the ONGOING PRESENT-DAY BRUTALITY of 21st-CENTURY Islam.

Here is a stunning survey of ORDINARY Muslims in the Middle East taken less than a year ago by globally renowned polling organization Pew Research Center:

http://pewglobal.org/2010/12/0...----% of Muslims who want DEATH PENALTY for those leaving Islam:

Egypt (86%)Pakistan (82%)-----% of Muslims endorsing STONING TO DEATH of adulterers (98% WOMEN):

Egypt (82%)

Pakistan (76%)------BOTTOM LINE: SHARIA LAW IS SUCH A HORRENDOUS VIOLATION OF BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS THAT IT CANNOT BE TOLERATED IN CIVILIZED NATIONS, NOR CAN CIVILIZED NATIONS TRUST SHARIA-INFESTED NATIONS AS ALLIES OR IN ANY OTHER WAY.
