Self-Acclaimed Jew Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ to Assaulting MP George Galloway

The prosecutor says Masterson told police, “I didn't want him to think I'm scared.”

A caretaker who says he is Jewish and was charged with pushing anti-Semitic British Member of Parliament George Galloway in the face last Friday has been remanded to prison, without bail, after pleading not guilty .

Neil Masterson, a former manager for the BBC, allegedly assaulted Galloway when the MP was posing for pictures. Galloway was hospitalized for broken ribs and bruises, including a lump on his head, before being released the following day.

The prosecutor in the case told the court that the Jewish suspect told police, “I didn’t want him to think I’m scared, Galloway is anti-Semitic, and I am Jewish.” However, a post on his Facebook page states he is Catholic.

He is a caregiver for a middle-aged woman, and his defense lawyer told the court that she “would be lost without him.”

One tweet called him a “Zionist terrorist.”

Masterson pleaded not guilty to the charge of an assault that was “religiously aggravated” on Galloway, who recently declared that the city of Bradford that he presents will be an “Israel-free zone.” Police have investigated Galloway for the remarks.

The court denied Masterson bail, and his trial is scheduled for later this month.

Galloway is far from the most popular politician in Britain and is such an embarrassment to the government that the assault was ignored by politicians.

The silence led a London Telegraph columnist to complain, “Galloway has received no public message of sympathy from a single MP from any party – nothing from Speaker Bercow, from the Prime Minister, or from any of the other elected political leader.“

The writer called the assault an ”attack on democracy,” but public figures apparently figure Britain was better off with Galloway out of action, even if for only a day.

  22. Marcel Murad says:

    Too bad he did not break his neck

  23. Where did you get the information regarding him being Jewish??? He posted on his page that he was Catholic

  24. John Dyer says:

    HERO HE SHOULD HAVE BROKEN HIS NECK

  25. Why are you calling him a Jew? On his Facebook page, he identifies himself as Catholic:

  26. A new Jewish Super Hero! Bravo!

  27. not Jewish, FYI, but that’s a somewhat minor point.

  28. In this case the crime is littering, not assault.

  29. But when Muslim scumbags beat up,a Jew, usually an old one-that’s O.K.- right pedophile worshiper?

  30. LOL some Jewish wipe ass OY lets buy him 4 beers Jamies Nachinson :-)

  31. I guess he found our his part of London wasn’t Jewish free with NO Jew’s in the area Adeleke LOL

  32. Reem, Galloway didn’t have an opposing opinion. He declared Bradford a jew/Israel -free zone. He asked for BDS on Israeli products. ( I highly doubt he meant any Halal product made in Israel either) That’s a hateful action taken by Galloway and his followers. That’s anti-semetic, not opinion.
    Seems Gaza has been doing lots of attacking and getting away with it from the UN…Let’s not play double standard here.

  33. if he is an israeli jew, may HashemYah will protect and guide him!

  34. May the Lord punish ruthlessly anyone who curses Israel, and bless those who support God’s Holy Nation.

  35. Reem, that tripe about Israel shooting pregnant Palestinian women is a hoax. That was happening in Syria about a year ago, and it was Syrian rebels doing the shooting. If you paid attention to something other than anti-Israel reporting, you would know that.

  36. On his FB page, he identifies himself as Catholic, so no, I don’t think they’re sure.

  37. Galloway and his evil mouth deserved this thrashing, and should be in prison, too. I’m not big on violence, but when the government there protects Muslims more than Jews (allowing them to beat Jews), and this MP does and says about Jews and Israel, it is difficult to say this man is guilty of anything at all but finally delivering some much-needed justice to the Jewish community in Britain.

  38. Reem, which planet are you from? The Diseased Planet Zaaaaaarrg more like.

  39. You from Pakistan? Try whinging about the rights of South Asian labourers in the Gulf.

  40. Melissa Simon says:

    I read in another new source that the man that assaulted Galloway is not Jewish. Jewish or not that man deserves far worse.

  41. But I thought he was catholic.

  42. Remember all jihad aloud to lie by their law, but in the name of justice try to be very sure before punishing anyone.

  43. Justice is not an Islam trait.

  44. Lisa Herzog says:

    Dude…wish you had not been caught!

  45. Karen Bryant says:

    Galloway is a disgrace.

  46. He’s not Jewish, he’s Christian but is very Pro-Israel! He’s a good guy and is sick of the anti-semitism and lies George Galloway is preaching! We need more like him to stand up for what is right!

  47. He got what he deserved. That British Bastard.

  48. Ellen Berman says:

    If Galloway was openly anti Muslim he would have been killed not merely pushed.

  49. Why this man will said he is jewish,it's possible that is just another trick to say that jewish people are aggressive or acting wild ?To me he do-sent look jewish,and I have bad feelings about it!!!!

  50. I don’t care what he is he did a good deed

  51. Frankie i’ll meet any Jew hater anywhere anyday of the week FU Frankie

  52. It’s okay for Muslims to murder a British soldier on the streets of London scumbag?
