THIS is why we want him to run for President.

“Yes, I am very aware these words and the statement I released will be carried forward all across America, and possibly beyond – and yes they are strong words. However, it is time that someone rose up to speak the truth.”

Allen West calls Obama `malicious’ to Israel

South Florida Congressman Allen West accused President Obama of “nefarious and malicious intent” when calling for Israel to accept pre-1967 borders as part of a Middle East peace settlement.

While many of Israel’s advocates opposed the president’s stance, West, a Plantation Republican and tea party stalwart, delivered the most withering criticism.

“America has a president who lacks moral courage and integrity when it comes to America’s long-standing relationship with Israel,” West concluded in a weekly wrapup message sent to “fellow patriots.”

“I cannot attribute this incompetent statement to naïveté, but rather to conscious, nefarious, and malicious intent,” he added.

“Yes, I am very aware these words and the statement I released will be carried forward all across America, and possibly beyond – and yes they are strong words. However, it is time that someone rose up to speak the truth.”

He called Obama’s statement “one of the most insidious and heinous policy statements ever made by any United States president.”

South Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, one of the most assertive supporters of Israel, rushed to Obama’s defense. As chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Wasserman Schultz has dedicated herself to getting Obama re-elected.

The Weston Democrat noted that Obama has “reiterated our nation’s unwavering support for the Jewish state, stressing that ‘the bonds between the United States and Israel are unbreakable – and the commitment of the United States to the security of Israel is ironclad.’”

“As a Jewish member of Congress who cares deeply about preserving Israel as a Jewish, democratic state, I am proud that President Obama spoke forcefully about continuing the United States’ strong and stalwart support of Israel.”
