Former Republican Congressman Allen West has come out swinging against Comedian-activist Bill Cosby over his praise for Muslims in a recent op/ed in The New York Post.

Cosby challenged Blacks to eschew apathy in order to better raise their children in his piece titled “A Plague of Apathy.”  He also suggested that Blacks look to the example set by Muslims.

“I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them,” Cosby wrote. “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.”

“U mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope ur kidding sir,” the Fox News contributor tweeted June 10.

“Wonder if Cosby appreciates discipline & family values of Syrians who killed 15 yr old?… just what behavior should we emulate?,” West tweeted the following day.
