-- back to Hannity now over the weekend outspoken comedian Bill Cosby -- a controversial opinion piece in the New York Post about the flaws of American communities today and the former star of the Cosby Show he's raising eyebrows for the op Ed in which he says we should all be more like Muslims he wrote quote I'm a Christian.
But Muslims are misunderstood intentionally misunderstood.
We should all be more like them -- make sense especially with their children.
There's 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 over indulge in alcohol.
They protect their women they command respect and what are these other people do they complain about them they criticize them we'd be a better world if we emulated them.
And lead us to say many people found his -- troubling and my next guest took to Twitter to express his disagreement with 'cause -- former congressman Alan west -- quote.
Today in the New York Post Bill Cosby said we should be more like Muslims you mean honour killings be heading suicide bombings hope you're kidding start.
Joining me now former Florida congressman and director of next generation dot TV Fox's contributor colonel Allen west.
Thanks so much for having me on us on -- -- I was surprised by his comments tell me why you felt the need to respond.
Well I think it's very important because we cannot allow people that are influential in our country especially in the entertainment industry to -- -- put out false information.
But give me a great example today as reported from Reuters in The Washington Times.
Kidnapped tortured and then executed a fifteen year old young Syrian boy in front of his mother -- father.
Just because he quote -- quote disrespect that Mohammed.
By saying that he did not want to be a believer and and we know that if you choose not to -- -- believe that's a processing and he was -- You know those are not the type of things are in keeping with western civilization values -- you talk about black muscle so let's also remember.
The Nigerians who brutally and savagely attacked and be headed the young British -- leave -- rich Rigby I believe.
And they were from Nigeria.
Look up to a group to terrorist group vocal or wrong in the face -- they are doing to Christians in Nigeria.
The Easter attacks the Christmas Day attacks but yet the Obama administration does not put vocal rom on -- terrorist list.
And then of course in the United States America we've had a series of honor killings that have occurred the father the -- over his daughter in Arizona.
The other father who shot his two daughters in Texas in the -- And then in Jonesboro Georgia father who strangle.
His young daughter so I don't think that's very keeping with the right type of family values that we.
In -- here in United States of America and western civilization I was particularly disturbed by his comments about how they protect their women.
How do you view women as being treated -- Muslim countries.
Well it's very simple when you understand that in the -- Ron you are you know sanctioned to beat your wife.
But having been over in the middle you saw saw countless amounts of times of women being attacked and beaten.
We know many times the Taliban was throwing -- on young girls who were trying to go to school.
We know about the young girl in Pakistan who was attacked by the Pakistan Taliban as she was shot -- -- -- simply because she has spoken out about young girls get an education.
So again I don't know where mr.
Cosby is getting his information from because I'm speaking about facts.
Well that they -- they protect their women I know that there's some Muslim countries you need four male eye witnesses to prove rape.
-- -- -- -- -- that's not and that's one of the traditions of Mohamed that has carried on and of course they see him as the premier individual to emulate.
But when you look at some of the things that -- in his history when you study.
The a decent traditions of Mohammed he's he's a very reprehensible behavior.
To include you know modern day -- affiliate.
And I think some psychopath sociopath that type of behavior and let's be very honest this gentleman was nothing more than a very vicious warlord.
Now what are the things I mean as Saudi Arabia women can't try they have the morality police women can't be seen outside the home -- men that they're not related to.
What about the issue of of women having to cover themselves that doesn't -- -- doesn't sound like the freedom that we give women here in America.
Now you have women have to cover themselves and also a Saudi Arabia.
You had a school of women that were left to burned to death because they were not allowed outside about the morality police.
Because they were not properly -- the let's not not forget about genital mutilation.
In the Islamic world so when you talk about a war on women.
I think we know exactly where we should be looking -- that is truly in the institution of surreal law which is part of the tennis of his long.
All right Allen west colonel what's good to see you sir thank -- meanwhile -- a pleasant thank you saw coming up next.
