West says Muslim Brotherhood being allowed to influence strategy

By Jonathan Easley - 04/23/12 08:12 AM ET

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) criticized the FBI on Monday for removing nearly 900 pages of training material it deemed to be offensive, saying it showed extremist Muslim groups were influencing national strategy.

The FBI made the move after Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) complained about some passages, including one that advised agents to "never attempt to shake hands with an Asian" and another that said agents should expect "outbursts" from Arab minds.

West said that by removing such passages, the FBI was committing "cultural suicide" and allowing groups like the Muslim Brotherhood to influence U.S. policy.

“We have to understand that when tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide,” West told "Fox and Friends" on Monday. “We should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood or associated groups to be influencing our national strategy.”

 

When asked if he believed those groups were influencing U.S. strategy, West responded, “Oh, absolutely,”Scissors-32x32.png
