By The Right Scoop


West gives a quick history of the region noting that there has never been a state of Palestine and continues:

There’s always been a state of Israel. After 1948 we have a modern day state of Israel. So we need to respect that and the people who call themselves Palestinians need to have a right and a respect of that state of Israel. Until then, until there’s a willing peace partner there really can’t be peace.

    What!!?? A politician speaking the truth and backing it up with history and facts?

    A politician who stakes out a clear unambiguous position based on principles and values and then stands to defend it!!??

    Call out the media jackals – this man must be stopped at once!

    Am I mistaken, or is the clearest speaking politician in America?

    The Road Not Taken

    Two Roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I– I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

    Robert Frost (1916)

    Why do we want a 100% corrupt, backwards, barbaric middle east? Jordan and the rest of the middle east need to absorb the palestinian scapegoat and be done with it. I personally could care less what happens to the palestinians. For the most part they seem to love being terrorists. Let them relish the life that illiteracy and incivility brings.

    • KenInMontana

      Jordan did try to absorb the Palestinians, Jordan offered citizenship, the price renounce all Palestinian claims. Most refused and the world got Black September, Jordan feared being overrun by the PLO so King Hussein drove the Palestinians out of Jordan.

      • Anonymous

        Jordan is currently 80% Palestinian. The Hashemites never “drove the Palestinians out”. They drove the PLO leadership out because they we one of the major causes for Jordan having to enter the six day way. They kept making terrorist attacks on Israel at the border that invoked Israel to counter attack then Jordan had to react.

        • KenInMontana

          Actually no, it was not terrorist attacks by Palestinians that provoked an Israeli counter attack. Jordan had been conducting massive artillery attacks on targets ranging from Jerusalem all the way to Tel-Aviv as well as conducting airstrikes against several Israeli airfields. In the West Bank, Jordan had deployed some 45,000 of its own troops, two armored brigades, an Iraqi brigade (yes Iraqi) as well as two Egyptian Commando Battalions. Israel pulled off one of the most incredible battlefield “Hail Marys” of all times by wheeling forces around from the Egyptian Front to attack the Jordanian center near Jerusalem (which Jordan’s forces had surrounded), in short, they broke the siege around the city and hammered the vaunted “Arab Legion” so severely that it was forced to retreat east of the Jordan River. Jordan had been convinced to attack Israel by the exaggerated reports of Egyptian successes against the IAF (Egyptian command claimed to have destroyed 75% of the IAF).

      Nearly all of the countries in the Middle East are Islamic. They are either dictatorships, or theocracies based on Sharia Law, or in some stage of transition between the two.

      Islam is, in its essence, corrupt, backwards, and barbaric. As long the middle east is Islamic, they will remain that way. The Palestinians are indeed a scapegoat issue to gain support for Israel’s destruction from western liberals.

      They hate us and Israel because we exist. Not because of anything we have done or have not done.

        There’s something uncivilized about those Muslims. That’s not antireligious, it’s just a factual observance. When we can’t speak the truth about a religion, that’s reverse religious discrimination ain’t it? It’s a mouth full that’s for sure. Kinda’ like that lalalalalalalalalalalala sound Muslims make when their happy. Happiness there seems a rare thing though so you don’t often here that sound. We Christians are happy with our religion…maybe it’s the religion. One got it rght, another just wanted slaves.

        • Anonymous

          Agreed. I don’t think I have ever seen them happy about anything. And if they do crack a smile, it’s that curious creepy grin where you wonder what they are really dreaming at that moment.

          There is a Muslim singles dating website. The models look so young, happy and good looking etc. It wreaks with phonyness imo. What beautiful young Middle Eastern girl in her right mind would want to dive into that lifestyle?

    Just as Mr. West closes this interview by saying, “This is just another disaster waiting to happen.” ANOTHER DISASTER: One after another is all we have been seeing now for 2/12 years! This entire administration is a disaster, and I just read another article where 36% of the US electorate STILL STRONGLY APPROVE OF MAOBAMA…Frightening!

    Col. West Sec. of Defense or Sec of the Army in our new republican administration. two years from that post Sec. of State. We already know he won’t run for Pres/VP so any of those positions will allow him to gain more experience towards a 2016-2020 run for the White House. We also know when the Pres. elect calls you and offers you a job very few ever turn them down.

    Allen West for every and any position in the U.S. government! This man seems to be fearless, but the left will pull out all the stops to put a halt to his career.

  • Anonymous

    I picture a dozen furious liberal “journalists” furiously Googling everything West says in order to catch him making a mistake. “It wasn’t 73AD and Emperor Hadren! It was 73CE and Hadren was a King!”*

    *I just made that up.

      The mainstream media’s (I like Ezra Levant’s description – The Consensus Media) fresh from crying wolf about Palin’s comments on Paul Revere for some factoid they later had to check, re-check, only to later call in Liberal historians. And when she couldn’t be disproved… they doubled down using a sympathetic liberal historian to declare she made a “lucky guess”.

      Do THEY ever put any brakes on how looney and stupid and petty they allow themselves to appear before the American public? Apparently not. They will do the same with West.

    why in the hell is allen west speaking so much? he’s the loudest congressman i’ve seen lately.

    • Anonymous

      Because he’s got valuable things to say. Maybe if you shut up for a while and listen to him, you could learn some things about the true operations of Western democracy, the true function of federal government, and the history of such enemies as islam. Please don’t take this the wrong way: I’m not accusing you of being smart enough to learn anything.

        and if you weren't such a useless jerk who just had to start getting smart &ss with me, the world would be better off. I now know you are a stupid &ss who doesn't know his & ass from a hole in the ground, just living on emotions, no knowledge at all. your type always get personal when you run out of something new to say. You just know one thought, and beyond that you are ready to fight. You idiot!!

    Finally the brave politicians like West are telling the historical truth. There are even those in the PLO that admit this truth but everyone loves to suckle at the liberal, socialist, antisemitist teet.
    The following is a quote from the PLO executive committee member, Zahir Muhsein:

    “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.”
