Allen West Responds to Bill Cosby's Praise of Muslims

If Bill Cosby had praised some specific Muslims for being good parents or being good people, I would have no objections. I've known many Muslims that I respect as parents and as people. But Cosby went much, much further, claiming that we should all strive to be more like Muslims. And here we must ask what he could possibly mean. Should we be more like Osama bin Laden, or the Muslims who blew up innocent people at the Boston Marathon, or the Muslims who butchered Lee Rigby? Of course not. Cosby means that we should be like Muslims who live better lives than their religion commands them to live. But if we're looking for people who live better lives than Islam commands, that's almost everyone in the world.

How many Qur'an passages, Hadith passages, or historical facts can you think of that contradict Cosby's remarks? Here's what he said:

I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?

They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work. (Source)

Colonel Allen West points out the obvious:

Really hope this is the start of the west waking up to Islam. Unfortunately until the Obama admin. is out CAIR and ISNA(?) are going to keep getting away with their false propaganda, conning more and more innocent westerners into their dark webbed cult for which the only way out is death. I honestly can't believe how ignorant some people are to the truth because they think its 'islamophobic'

Keep up the reporting David I try to share as much as I can on Facebook. Wonder how my Muslim friends will take it. Although one is from Pakistan and is Sunni, I'm sure he practises taqiyya just from past dialogue with him. He's the typical Muslim who gives you a question thinking you can't answer it, then when I start answering it (thanks to David, Nabeel, Sam Shamoun, James white and many others) he asks another and another and another. So irritating. Anyway thanks David!!

What is Bill Cosby smoking ? or he was also a victim of the sugar coated propaganda of CAIR ?

If you read the entire article that Cosby wrote, it is clear that he is not praising muslims. In fact, when his controversial comments are taken in the context of the entire article, it is clear that he is talking about "Black Muslims" - the NoI, Nation of Islam, the Farrakhan bunch - not the sunnis, shi'ia, sufi, wahabbi, or other Middle Eastern muslims. And he also states he is not advocating becoming a black muslim, but to simply take those things they teach their children (i.e.: don't smoke, don't overindulge in alcohol, respect your elders, protect your women), which are good, and apply them to our own lives. He did not say anything that so many of the conservative sites are claiming.

Excuse me but are those things considered morals and values, so what he should have said is we need to all think about these morals and values that SOME muslims have!

I think Mr Cosby spent too much time in Hollywood. What good is it to islamically shape your childs morals for him to become a suicide bomber? Islam is the problem.
I hope none of the "morally upright" muslims will attempt to silence Col. West for his courage to speak out in the face of rampant political correctness.

Precisely, those values and morals are very much present in a Christian household...,
"Did you not teach those morals& values to your children, Bill?"

Looks like he has graduated from smoking "cubans", to poppies!!

I use to adore him, Now?

Yes there are bad Muslims in the world but lets talk about the non Muslim! Where is he getting his facts from? How many Muslims do you know? Our Prephet was a "War Lord"? You probably cheated on your wife with a prostitute right befor giving the interview. As most of you political basterreds are nothing but a bunch of male slutes!!!! Done worry about what we do in our Islamic countries!! Worry about the rape victims, beaten women, starving kids, kids being raped & malested in the US. We don't very many raps cases & random murders commited by the spouse in Islamic countries because of the sever punishments.
