“I think I know what kind of a human being Colonel West must be…We need many more like him in the US Congress, because he is an adult who can make a moral decision under immense pressure. Far too many of our politicians just slip around real moral decisions; those are the people we don’t need as leaders.”

LTC Allen West (USAR) on Geert Wilders

Written by:Diana West 1/26/2009 4:25:00 PM

LTC Allen West (USAR),  a member of the Board of Advisors to the International Free Press Society and a likely GOP Congressional candidate in 2010 (cross your fingers), tells the Western world not to roll over and play dead.

Allen writes:

I recently read of the travails of my fellow IFPS board member Geert Wilders. A day later my attention was drawn to President Barack Hussein Obama signing an executive order to shut down operations at the Guantanamo detention facility.

The irony struck me that here we have the new President seeking to extend US Constitutional protections to Islamic terrorists, the enemy. We plan to provide them legal rights under the equal protection clause. Yet in Holland, a fellow democracy, the government is ordering the criminal prosecution of an elected representative for exercising one of the Western world’s most precious freedoms, freedom of speech; and in this case, freedom of speech to discuss the jihadist ideology of the enemy.

What is happening in Western civilization? Have we become so enamored with this illness called multiculturalism that we are embarrassed to honor and defend our own cultural principles? Can nothing be more shocking than to charge a member of the Dutch Parliament with “hate speech” for speaking the truth?

This reminds me of the seminal scene from the movie A Few Good Men. “I want the truth,” one of the character says. And the response was: “You can’t handle the truth.” I am starting to believe that we–actually our elected officials–are not leaders, and cannot handle the truth. The truth is that an enemy does exist and that this enemy lives amongst us, and hates us. The truth is that our insidious policies of open immigration and multiculturalism are now ushering in our demise and promoting the deconstruction of our Western civilizational values, freedom of conscience, and the freedom to express our thoughts.

The truth as I see is that we no longer have men in Western governments who are willing to defend our way of life. I find this prosecution of Geert Wilders to be an example of abject cowardice. How can it be that Islam has become such an intimidating religion that men cower away? And I address “men” because I have found more often that women are taking a stand and condemning this modern-day totalitarian, imperialistic radical ideology mired in antiquated 7th century concepts.

Islam as a religion elevates and follows a man who was nothing more than a psychopath, murderous warlord, and by modern-day standards a sexual deviant and pedophile. Islam as a political entity is based upon complete submission and seeks only to subjugate and suppress every freedom we cherish in western civilization. Until Islam undergoes a reformative process bringing it into alignment with the rest of the world, then I shall reject it, and stand against it. The converse I find reprehensible; to convert, be subjugated, or die, which are the Koranic options given to me, a non-Muslim.

I will gladly peacefully coexist with Islam. Can the same be said in reverse? And do not tell me about the Koranic verse stating, “there is no compulsion in religion,” because I understand the theory of naskh or abrogation. That means that the later verses of the Koran supercede previous verses. As a result, most violent verses in the Koran abrogate previous “peaceful” writings.
Have I just committed hate speech? No, it is the truth according to the Koran and the Hadiths, and I have no fear in stating such. I will not allow Western civilization nor America to be paralyzed by soft or hard jihad, by legal tactics, nor kinetic attacks. I pledge to fight, not for myself, but for others, for our future and legacy which we leave our children and grandchildren. Any man that cannot find the courage to do so as well, especially leaders in western civilization, I call a coward.

Geert, stand resolute, my comrade. You will win this fight, and we shall defeat this third jihad and incursion to defeat our way of life.
All who read this post never forget a simple maxim which I live by: “When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide”.
Count on Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West to stand and fight against this enemy, radical Islamic terrorism and their state sponsors anywhere, anytime.

Steadfast and Loyal,

ABW

19 Jan 2009

Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)

This year Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr holiday will come right before an incredible historic event in America, the inauguration of our Country’s first black President. Being born and raised in Atlanta Georgia and having attended school, Our Lady of Lourdes, right across from Ebenezer Baptist Church and Dr King’s resting place had a profound affect upon my life. Each day I was reminded of the work upon which Dr King embarked to establish civil rights for blacks, and improve rights for all Americans.

As I ponder the upcoming King Holiday two of his quotes come to mind, and have a very direct relationship to the 20 January inauguration;

“Change does not roll in on wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent”.

“A Nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan”.

My parents raised me to realize that every opportunity exists for one to excel and become as great as they desire to be. My 22 years of active duty service in the US Army built upon that theme with their slogan, “Be all that You can Be”.

There is nothing that holds one back from their own monumental achievement but their own minds, determination, and desire. And this is a refutable argument in the black community when you examine the ranks of professional sports and entertainment industry. On this coming King holiday let us realize, especially in the black community, that we need not look to any one person to enable our success in life, that indomitable spirit of change exists in us all.

Our black community suffers from so many social ills that cannot be solved by the rise and emergence of a singular entity. The remedy for the high murder rates, low High School graduation rates, and high teenage pregnancy rates will be realized by a personal commitment to excellence. If we continue to raise soft-minded men in our black community, then we shall indeed purchase the death of the community over time.

Therefore the real lesson to be learned from the election of President Barack Hussein Obama is that there is no longer any excuse. Our young men and women will only be ridden if their backs are bent. “Change” is an empty platitude if not followed by individual action, and that means positive action. If the black community just sees this as a historic moment and returns to the same status quo negative behaviors that afflict it, there has been no lesson learned, no gain.

It is inherent upon everyone to see this as the realization of Dr King’s dream, and focus on content of character. This moment is about individual responsibility and accountability. It is about seeking and securing the opportunities which this great Country affords us all, not waiting for socialized equal achievement programs. This moment is about what makes America the greatest Nation on earth.

However, if we all just see 20 January as a date when “manna will fall from heaven” then Dr King’s dream will be lost. This is truly the moment when the Latin maxim, “Carpe Diem” should be realized by all, and especially those in the black community. To see 20 January as anything else will result in a failure of character, and indeed a slow death from the neck up.

Look not to one Man, but rather to the principles and values that makes America, our Republic, like no other Nation in the world; individual freedom to excel.

Best Regards,

LTC(R) Allen West
