The Palm Beach Post is reporting that the Jerusalem Post has described GOP Rep. Allen West as something of a rock star on his recent trip to Israel with a congressional delegation.

"At Jerusalem’s David Citadel, “West walks through the lobby almost like a rock star – not the world’s most famous rock star, but one that enough people have seen, and heard, to attract attention."

The Jerusalem Post did a great question and answer with West, whose track record of supporting Israel is impressive. Here's West talking about what Congress would do should Israel go to war.
