Former Representative Colonel Allen West, a staunch fighter against Islamists, was infuriated by Bill Cosby’s op-ed in the weekend’s New York Post advising Americans to be more like Muslims. West tweeted on Monday: “2day in NY Post, Bill Cosby said we should b more like Muslims, U mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope ur kidding sir.”
Cosby had written this:
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.
