Allen West: We Cannot Have a National Security Strategy Unless We Recognize Sharia As A Threat

ALLEN WEST: So there are many different ways we need to understand this 21st century battlefield, how we can leverage all elements of our nation’s power against — and like I said we need to get away from this nation building focus. I think that is economically hurting us.

GAFFNEY: In terms of understanding our enemy, and I think you’ve done as much as any congressional candidate to help expand the awareness for not only your constituents but others. I count on you to be carrying that on in your new capacity. What is your sense of the willingness of this new Congress to take on Sharia as the enemy threat doctrine?

WEST: Well, I haven’t had the opportunity to sit down with all of the new members, giving all the new members of the freshmen class a phone call to talk to them. I think one of the critical things that we must come together is that there is an infiltration of the Sharia practice into all of our operating systems in our country as well as across Western civilization. So we must be willing to recognize that enemy. We cannot have a national security strategy that does not recognize it in specific and understand its goals and objectives.

So once again, we can tailor you know our internal goals and objectives as far as our security systems, our political systems, economic systems, our cultural and educational systems, so that we can thwart this. And it comes back to one of those strategic goals that you mentioned, reducing the sphere of influence of this Sharia you know ideology that is tied into Islam. But I think that is our most threatening part, is the Sharia philosophy.

Our country is blessed to have this man, this warrior in our government........finally. I have waited a long time for an elected official to make a stand on this subject of Sharia.

God bless and protect this fine man.

I do hope that Allen West stays true to his oratory. We have been disappointed so many times by politicians it almost becomes an expectation. West has an understanding of our most dangerous enemy that most politicos seem to want to avoid or deny. If he can rally just a portion of congresspeople to this understanding maybe we can begin fighting the infiltrated enemy. I also like his distaste of nation building. I remember George W. Bush coming into office saying we were through with nation building. That lasted about a year.

Tom, thank you for pointing that out, I had forgotten Bush had said that and how quickly it changed.
