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.
Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims â€œto carry out attacks against Americans and innocent peopleâ€. 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 â€œtry to blow sunshine up my buttâ€ with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamzeâ€™s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to â€œput the microphone down and go home.â€
Dude is made of awesome.
