Rep. Allen West, a Republican from the state of Florida, warned that
Israel could become the site of a "second Holocaust" if the United
States does not take further actions to protect the Jewish state
against Iran, the WOKV-AM/FM radio station, reported on Monday.
“You’re looking at a second Holocaust … [if Israel doesn´t] know they
can trust and depend upon the stars and stripes … to provide them
support,” West stated.
“There will be no spiritual homeland for Christians to return back
to" if that Holocaust does occur, said West in an address to the
First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach.
"There will be no homeland for the Jewish people in the United States
of America for their birthright. This is a dangerous situation and we
have to take the Iranians for their word,” he continued.
West also warned that the current political turmoil in Syria could
lead the country to engage in war against Israel.
“What happens if all of a sudden Syria doesn’t focus on fighting each
other, but focus on fighting Israel?” West asked.
West, who is a veteran of the Iraq war, has been among the most vocal
pro-Israel supporters in Congress. He expressed disapproval at
President Obama for calling for a two-state solution, saying that the
United States cannot negotiate with the Palestinian Authority, The
"Today´s endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a
Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals
the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has
made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for
the Jewish state," he said in May 2011.
"President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and
has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine
attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations," he
continued. "The President should focus on the real obstacle to
security -- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to
eliminate Israel and the Jewish people," he affirmed.
He has also said that, "America should never negotiate with the
Palestinian Authority which has aligned itself with Hamas, Palestine
is a region, not a people or a modern state." (IsraelNationalNews ©
