On cue, Congressman Allen West joined the chorus of other top conservative Republicans, including Senator Marco Rubio in denouncing the recent U.N. vote acknowledging Palestine as a ‘non-member observer state.’ West went on to chide the Socialist-lite governments of Austria,Spain, Italy, France and Norway for voting “lockstep” in favor of a Palestinian state.
It is naive to think this vote is solely about human rights or a homeland for Palestinian people. This vote is yet another step towards delegitimizing Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state with Jerusalem as its undivided capital.
When the cease-fire brokered by the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egyptian government was announced, Hamas and the Palestinians celebrated it as a victory over Israel, not as a step towards peace.The true intentions of nations such as Iran and Syria are one thing, but it is deeply disappointing when countries such as Austria, France, Italy, Norway and Spain vote in lockstep. It is unfortunate that so many in our own country, including those in this current administration, continue to ignore the reality.” –Congressman Allen West
