Allen West “Today the people of Egypt dissolved their bands with a tyrant”


by Allen West via Facebook

237 years ago, our Founding Fathers dissolved the bands associated with a tyrant. Today the people of Egypt dissolved their bands with a tyrant. I pray that as they go forward, they will learn the lessons we learned when creating a constitutional republic, and will shun the radical Islamists who would take Egypt back and not forward. I believe the people of Turkey will see this example and reject their tyrant, Prime Minister Erdogan. The sad thing is, our president is just a bystander to it all…

Rep Allen West’s Leadership Traits that Very Few Possess – BIZPAC Review Exclusive

Allen West’s visit to Israel schools Obama in leadership

Leadership is a trait known to many, learned by some and perfected by few. It is not something that can be inherited or passed on or even learned in a textbook. It’s about taking responsibility, and has to be earned on a daily basis.

John F. Kennedy perhaps described it best: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

Ronald Reagan praised Kennedy’s words of wisdom, adding his own: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We d didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

In December 2009, at an Israel seminar I hosted on security challenges in a radically changing world, I was introduced to a leader bearing the same characteristics of both these great men. I was afforded the privilege of spending several days with Lt. Col. Allen West.

Along with 12 other delegates from Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe, the American military officer’s leadership qualities were instantly apparent.

While discussing the Middle East and Africa, where radicalism and terror has been as much a concern as the cost in human life is alarming, West presented his views on a more violent turbulence that “would surely sweep over Africa, the Middle East and spill off into Europe.” He said it was essential that America was strong on foreign policy because “any signs of weakness shown by the United States would trigger radical Muslim elements into an even more violent campaign.” How right he was, as we have seen the seasons change from an Arab Spring to an Arab storm of carnage and death.
