I like Alan West; first that he put his life on the line in the military, second he put his career on the line for his troops, and third, he spoke truth to power and got elected to Congress to give the power back to the people.

Nezar Hamze, of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) attended a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman West the other day, wielding a Koran, and hoping to trap Col. West;

Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use before telling Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt” with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”

Dude is made of awesome.
