George Galloway And The Left’s Alliance With Terror


“I want you to know,” he told Hussein, “that we are with you until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem.”

On an Al Jazeera television appearance in 2005, Galloway similarly showed his contempt for the West and his strange attraction to jihadism when he accused the United States and Israel of being defiling occupiers who had unjustly asserted themselves into Iraq and Palestine.

“Two of your beautiful daughters are in the hands of foreigners – Jerusalem and Baghdad,” he said. “The foreigners are doing to your daughters as they will. The daughters are crying for help, and the Arab world is silent. Some of them are collaborating with the rape of these two beautiful Arab daughters .”

The perverse union between jihadists and leftists, embodied by Galloway, which might seem initially incompatible, serves both sides well, and is the reason why his presence at the Palestinian Center makes strategic sense. Pro-Palestinians wish to deflect the pathologies of their own societies and savor being able to assign the term of illegal “occupier” to Israel, and leftists at the same time fulfill their Marxist dreams of trying to envision and help create what Harvard’s Ruth Wisse has called the “ideal of the egalitarian state” by purporting to help suffering Gazans with aid that instead is expropriated by Hamas for weaponry with which to murder even more Jews.

HRW “investigations” reflect anti-Israel bias, lack of research, and flat-out fabrications.

Jews do not fare well on campuses these days, particularly in the context of the debate over Israel.

Cravatts-Richard--new

The cynical, and historically and factually inaccurate, view has meant leftists frequently denounce Western democracies as imperialistic, racist, militaristic oppressors.

What was unique about the MLA’s and the ASA’s approach was the breathtakingly Orwellian notion that not only was Israel itself guilty of the many alleged transgressions assigned to it by its libelers, but a boycott against Israeli academics was warranted because the academic establishment itself is complicit in Zionism’s excesses and a core element of the bemoaned occupation, oppression, and denial of Palestinian self-determination.

The ASA has obviously overlooked the pathology of Palestinian society.

The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI), which represents some 14,500 members, voted in early April “to cease all cultural and academic collaboration with Israel, including the exchange of scientists, students and academic personalities, as well as cooperation in research programmes [sic].”

As an example of what the insightful commentator Melanie Phillips referred to as a “dialogue of the demented” in her book The World Turned Upside Down, Northeastern University’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), paralleling the moral incoherence of anti-Israel activists demonstrating elsewhere in American and European cities, sponsored a November 15 Boston rally in support of Gaza and, presumably, its genocidal thugocracy, Hamas.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recently continued a long tradition of attempting to question a Jewish link to Jerusalem by expressing his mendacious notion that “Jerusalem’s identity is Arab, and the city’s and Christian holy sites must be protected from Israeli threats.”

On campuses today Israel is regularly, though falsely, condemned for being created “illegally” – through the “theft” of Palestinian lands and property – and thus has no “right to exist.”
