An old friend of my father had a great sense of humor and was skillful in telling even the most lengthy and complex complex jokes. His business card was short and to the point, including a profanity which I will omit. " If you are going to say no, say it now before I waste my ... time on you."Last week I said yes, joining a Facebook page which supports Representative Allen West for President. Since then I received information which compels me to revoke the sale and say no. I will not support Rep. West for the nomination, nor will I vote for him if he is nominated for President. I demand honesty and consistency in my candidates. I can not tolerate pandering to prejudice and bigotry. I have seen and heard previous statements by West in which he related the truth with clarity and conviction. I was ready to support him based on that. Others had a different reaction and several of them set a letter of complaint. West's reaction to that letter, revealed by the Miami herald, turned me off. West responded to two Rabis and two preachers representing a LefTard group with a letter which included the following disgusting expressions of pandering cowardice.
I am neither anti-Muslim nor anti-lslam
If any seeker or holder of high office is not against Islam, then I am against him. Once you know what it is, you must be opposed to it if you have any morality.
l respect every religion
Islam is not a religion, it is a way of life: intra-species predation. Respect is given where respect is due, Islam is not owed any.
practice that faith in a peaceful manner
Islam's faith component serves as a troop motivator and camouflage. It promises Muslims eternity in a celestial bordello if they wage jihad and threatens them with eternal torment in the fire if they refuse. If it is a religion, it must be peaceful and beneficent.War is a required part of Islam, ordained by 2:216. It is not like "cafeteria Catholicism" it is all or nothing: ..."Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? "...2:85. Islamic law requires a minimum of one military expedition against disbelivers in every year, if it is not performed when possible, all who know of the obligation are in sin.
right to practice a free religion
Islam is slavery, not freedom. Believers are Allah's slaves, purchased to fight his wars; 9:111. Is there a right to engage in world conquest? In 8:39, Allah orders Muslims to fight until only Allah is worshiped, "alltogether and everywhere". 3:110 tells Muslims that they are "the best of peoples". Bukhari's collection of authentic hadith informs us that the expression means: "the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam."Islamic law informs us that when women and children are captured by Muslims, "they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately annulled". Is there a right to rape? The hadith also inform us that Moe gave tacit approval to the practice of raping captives and the Noble Qur'an has seven references to "right hands possess".
Religious freedom is for legitimate religions, not crime syndicates. Islam's mission is mercenary and its method is martial. Islam does not reciprocate, it demands a monopoly.
The Qur'an contains eight verses which prohibit friendship with disbelievers. Tafsir Ibn Kathir sheds some light on this issue in "The Prohibition of Supporting the Disbelievers"; "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.'' .
radical element that has hijacked Islam
Islam has not been hijacked, it is evil by design. Terrorism is not a modern innovation, it is a foundational sacrament in the core of Islam. I refer doubters and dissenters to a previous post: What's Wrong With Islam/Muslims? for the disgusting details.
their radical interpretation of the Koran
The interpretation belongs to Islam's founder; what he said and did while not engaged in revelation shows us how he interpreted what he revealed. In the last decade of his life, Moe started a war on the average of every six weeks. A glance at the table of contents of The Life of Muhammad will tell you what you need to know about Islam.Most Americans don't know that Moe dictated & dispatched extortion letters. Most of them were subject to some interpretation; the one quoted below stands out for its clarity.
I need to hear a candidate curse & condemn Islam and call for the emancipation of those enslaved to Allah. Allen West won't do it. Instead, when assailed by bigots under color of clerical vestments, he pandered to bigotry.
