Rep. Allen West (R-FL.) became irate at a town hall meeting when Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) South Florida chapter, asked him to name the passage in the Quran that commands Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people.” West brushed off the criticism — and told Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt.”
West was quick to tell Hamze the Quran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels. He then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression.
Congressman West concluded his argument by mentioning the Fort Hood shootings and 9/11 attacks, saying “I’ve been on the battlefield my friend” and told Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”
