Who's ‘NUTS' now?

Allen West letter to CAIR sells for $2,625

(Washington Times) The Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida announced Tuesday that it had sold a memorable letter sent by then-Rep. Allen West on eBay for $2,625.

The note, sent on Aug. 4, 2011, was addressed to Nezar Hamze and Hassan Shibly of CAIR Florida. They had initially sent Mr. West a letter urging him to cut ties with individuals they said “have been identified as anti-Islam extremist(s).”

Mr. West’s response read: “Dear Mr. Hamze and Mr. Shibly, I am writing to you with regard your recent letter: ‘NUTS!’”
