Rep. Allen West: I stand with Israel as she defends herself from radical Islamic terrorism

Rep. Allen West released this statement today, vowing his support for Israel as she defends herself from radical Islamic terrorism and also calls out Egypt’s government for supporting Hamas:

“I fully support the Israeli military strike that killed the Hamas military wing chief, Ahmed Jabari. Hamas is a known Islamic terrorist organization and clearly states in its charter the aim to destroy the modern day State of Israel.

Mr. Jabari has been responsible for countless rocket and missile attacks originating from Gaza Strip into Southern Israel. I have personally seen the destruction this causes, and visited the City of Sderot where bomb shelters stand on school playgrounds and children suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Israeli’s turned over Gaza to the Palestinians in an offer to further the peace process. What they have received in return are more attacks and carnage. I stand with Israel, and as a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, will support supplying the requested resources enabling Israel to defend herself from our common enemy, radical Islamic terrorism. We cannot abandon our best ally in her true time of need. We have no doubt that the new Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt supports Hamas.”

In the separate matter of the recount, his campaign also released this statement today:

“Last night during a press conference, the Supervisor announced her office had determined that approximately 3,650 ballots were double-counted on election night, and approximately 1,950 ballots were not counted at all, with all ballots coming from the last three days of early voting – which is what was retabulated on Sunday. However, if this information is accurate, the total vote in the county should have decreased by 1,700 votes after the Sunday retabulation. Instead the total votes cast declined by 799. It simply does not add up.

In addition, according to news reports, the Supervisor of Elections announced her office re-ran some 26,000 ballots from early voting. This would account for the first 6 days of the 8 days of early voting. However, on election night, the campaign staff was told there was a problem with the first 3 days of voting, which would involve approximately 13,000 ballots based on information uploaded to the Division of Elections. What is the truth?

Finally, during the same press conference, the Supervisor announced there were some “blank” memory cards involved. If these “blank” memory cards were in reference to the election night decision to retabulate 26,000 ballots, then the cards processed on the first 5 days of early voting have been processed twice, the ballots on day 6 have been processed three times, and of the ballots on the last two days, some have been processed twice and some only once. Whether this resulted through mechanical malfunction, negligence or willful action, the voters of St. Lucie County deserve to know their votes have been fairly counted.

Towards that end, we are pleased Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has decided to send auditors to St. Lucie County to examine the returns and the ballot-counting process, and we have detailed our concerns to him in a letter today.

The West campaign is simply seeking the truth, and an accurate count of votes. Given the inconsistencies emanating from the Supervisor’s office, we have no confidence in any of the information regarding the votes counted or the election results overall.”

  • So that’s how electronic voting machines help fraud. Create a memory card with a falsified information, and if you’re ever caught, delete it and pretend nothing happened.

    St. Lucie… the proverbial “tip” of the iceberg.

    Of course, if we had a “real” functioning media…

  • jrt1031

    They need to have all the citizens that voted for West petition to a re-ballot like they did in Wisconson, or at least petition for the total number cast votes and compare to the results.

  • Col. West’s Israeli support speech sounded positively Reaganesque to me!

    This is how our pResident SHOULD respond!!

    Now, If Col West was our President, I’d feel 10000 times safer and better off and I believe the country would be too.

      If Col. West was our president, I doubt he would be hanging out with rap singers like JAy-Z or whatever they call him or claiming Chicago as his hometown. How many autobiographies has West written about himself? Hussein had help writing two, so I guess West needs to get busy on that end.

    Now take that CAIR! Chair is always complaining about Islamophobia and we have every reason. They are trying to eliminate us and Isreal by blowing us all up!

    LTC. West is doing his job while defending the right to vote for every American. I hope that he is rejected from Florida because then Georgia will take full advantage of this GREAT AMERICAN!

  • This destructive element has taken ownership of the electoral process. Who knows when a majority of opposition votes will ever be counted again.

  • sDee

    I watch all these Republican politicians and pundits scurrying around after losing at the leftists’ own game, once again. They talk of a fading Tea Party, the changing electorate, navigating to the middle, and mastering the “new media”.

    All the while, the answer stands right in front of them in the form of Allen West.

    To master this “new media” simply feed it the truth, as ugly or as painful as it may be.

    The truth will spread like wildfire and will bring with it an electorate whose loyalty need only be earned by standing on some very basic core principles of liberty and limited government.

    Yet even now when they have clearly failed the Nation and betrayed freedom, the elephants do not take note, slow down, pull over and sit down with Colonel West. Instead they back up to get a better shot at him.

    You have lost the game GOP, and you have taken the greatest nation in history with you. Better spin, better lies, better propaganda or better progressiveness are not the answer.

    Try principled truth – the market demand is insatiable.

    • marketcomp

      Excellent post, sDee! All the GOP has to do is review the cheating in the voting process and that says it all right there!

    • sjmom

      How right you are. The Colonel is a man of courage; hard to find these days, especially in the GOP.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Keep at ’em Allen. Win or lose, you’ve already won.

    • 4Hoppes2

      Yes he has, the man is the metric our stupid GOP should mirror itself after.

    May God Bless Allen West and Help this is in serious need of an intervention..


    This man is a FIGHTER, and he belongs in Congress one way or the other (SENATOR) or the OTHER (as elected SPEAKER).

    If he loses his seat he SHOULD move to wherever they want him, and GEORGIA seems good to me if it is his home state.

    As I have said before, he can be Speaker now if he could get the votes IN CONGRESS from Re-pubes.
    He does not have to be an elected Congressman.

    I know this sounds odd, but look it up.

    Everyone knows that, right?
    WE KNOW John BONE-Head won’t vote for him.
    Man, that would shake things up NOW !

    TEA Party needs to get going again.

  • sDee

    our common enemy, radical Islamic terrorism

    That, is the truth.

    • sjmom

      At this point I don’t think they are our only common enemy. I think there are some right here in the USA.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    God Bless you Allen West, I also stand with Israel.

    wish romney would have demanded some recounts in some states precincts.

    google agenda grinding america dowm it puts mysteries of what you suspect is wrong in the country in an enlightened perspective. If the majority of American voters had seen this site, Romney would have had a landslide. In this age of communication, timing means a lot.

  • Don’t wait for him to be gone to take action. Such a great lesson from a movie all about freedom!

    • That is one great movie! Is it just me or does the sword in the ground remind others of a Cross as well?

  • Can you move to Georgia and become Senator Allen West ?

    Methinks melikes the sound of that.
    Is this possible?

    • marketcomp

      If it worked for Hilary Clinton then it will most definitely work for Allen West!

      • tinlizzieowner

        Clinton (D) West (R) don’t count on it. 😉

  • Why doesn’t the House leadership present this stirring defense of Israel?

    And how big could this voter fraud actually be across the country?
    How can we get to the bottom of this? Or will they just delete or erase memory cards?
    How long do we have to figure this out or is it (I sadly presume) too late?

      google Anita Moncrief to get a taste on what the Democrat’s cheat machine is and how it works. She was a whistleblower against ACORN and has written many articles about the sophistication of their GOTV efforts and the fraudulent registrations.

      It is all over the country. ACORN no longer exists – they changed their names and kept right on cheating.

    “Towards that end, we are pleased Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has decided to send auditors to St. Lucie County to examine the returns and the ballot-counting process, and we have detailed our concerns to him in a letter today.”

    I think that it goes without saying that there were some kind of ‘irregularities’ with this election and probably many others across this country.

    I love the man.
    He knows the situation The material.
    He is excellent.

    take a look at this video. We now know that democrats indeed do steal elections. there is no way the people would elect this clown over allen west. disgracefull

  • jrt1031

    A re-vote of the entire county must be done!!! America stand up to this nonsense…. or lose your right of life

  • jrt1031

    the auditors are being payed by obama…..what do you think they will come up with. private citizens need to stand and roar.

  • IPatriot

    Fellow Patriots –

    I’m betting Allen West would LOVE to hear from all of us personally. My wife and I sent him an e-mail through his website several days ago, expressing our support and admiration for his courage and leadership. It just took a second, and I’m thinking some encouraging words from all of us in his in-box right about now would give him an added boost in morale.

    His contact addy is:

    Note that unless you live in his district you will NOT get a personal reply, however we got a very nice “generic” reply and are quite satisfied with that.

    We will also be donating to his recount fund tomorrow (payday); a victory in his battle down in Florida MAY ultimately save America. Link:

    I imagine Congressman West doesn’t have a lot of time to surf conservative websites. If you’ve got an extra moment or two, please consider dropping him a line and letting him know we’ve got his six.

    Good Luck to Rep. West!!! We wish you luck and hope you win! We should be so fortunate to have YOU as President of our USA!
