British Man Beats Up Anti-Semite George Galloway

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

British police have arrested a 39-year-old man, (not Jewish, we’re not sure if that surprises us or not) for assault anti-Israel and anti-Semitic Member of Parliament George Galloway, who was hospitalized for broken ribs and a head injury.

The attacker was identified as Neil Masterson.

Galloway has been released from the hospital, but it is doubtful that the attacker was able to beat some sense into his head.

The MP, who has built his political career on loving Saddam Hussein and Hamas and hating Jews and Israel, was posing for pictures in west London Friday night when the attacker jumped on him while calling him “Hitler.”

The assault “appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust,” said Galloway’s spokesman. The name of his one-MP party is Respect, which indicates his ignorance of the English language.

The party’s name is a very contrived acronym for Respect, Equality, Socialism, Peace, Environmentalism, Community and Trade Unionism. A more accurate acronym would be “Racist, Extremist, Satanic, Pisher, Ethnic=hatingt, Crude and Twisted.

Galloway has been under police investigation since his call earlier this month that the city of Bradford, which he represents, be an “Israel-free” zone that would bar Israeli tourist and place a total ban on anything related to Israel.

We wish Galloway a speedy recovery and hope that some of the medicine he needs is made in Israel.

Irish Jews Brace for Galloway Visit

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

The Jewish community in Belfast, Northern Ireland is bracing for violent backlash as the city prepares for an appearance by radical British MP George Galloway on Saturday night.

Last month, Palestinian supporters smashed windows twice at the Belfast Hebrew Congregation following a pro-Palestinian demonstration in the city. Now, representatives for Galloway say the 1,000-seat Ulster Hall is sold out for the MP’s appearance, part of a nationwide speaking tour titled Just Say Naw.

 

The evening, which sounds more like a stand-up comedy show than a serious address about national politics, is ostensibly about Scotland’s referendum next month but the firebrand Galloway is certain to repeat his support for Hamas and critize Israel.

Galloway, who is currently under police investigation violating Britain’s racial vilification laws for declaring his region Bradford an “Israel-free zone,” routinely accuses Israel of “genocide” against the Palestinians and calls for “Palestine, Palestine to be free, from the river to the sea.”

At a meeting of Respect Party members earlier this month, Galloway said he has “declared Bradford an Israel-free zone.” “We don’t want any Israeli goods; we don’t want any Israeli services; we don’t want any Israeli academics coming to the university or the college.

“We don’t even want any Israeli tourists to come to Bradford even if any of them had thought of doing so.

“We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel – and you have to do the same,” he said. Earlier, in July, Galloway told a rally outside the Israeli embassy in London that “it is torture for all of us to watch what is going (in Palestine),” and added that any ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians is “not a ceasefire, but merely a pause in the (Israeli) killing (of Palestinians).

“The killing started long before (Operation Protective Edge), and will not stop until Palestine is free from the river to the sea,” Galloway told supporters.

It is not clear whether Galloway has instructed local hospitals to boycott Israeli medical devices, local pharmacies to boycott low-cost medicines produced in Israel or residents of Bradford to trash the Intel computer chips developed in Israel.  There is no word on whether Galloway has thrown his mobile phone, with it’s Israeli-developed technology, in the rubbish.

UK Parliament Member George Galloway Declares his District “Israel Free Zone”

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

You have to hand it to George Galloway. He’s a one trick pony and he finds endless ways to trot out that pony and show off that one trick.

The anti-Zionist Galloway – most recently infamous for walking out on a debate for the prestigious Oxford Debate Team when he learned his opponent was Israeli, is now declaring the district in England which he represents an “Israel Free Zone.”

There’s nothing more to be said. Just watch the video:

George Galloway Declares ‘Israel-Free Zone’ in British City

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Hamas enthusiast and British Member of Parliament George Galloway has unilaterally declared the city of Bradford an “Israel-free zone” that rejects all Israeli goods, services, academics and tourists.

He made the declaration ay a meeting of his Respect Party in Leeds, where en encouraged the city also to rid itself of Israelis.

In his speech, seen in the video below, Galloway stated, “We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel. And you have to do the same.

Why I Confronted George Galloway

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

This opinion piece appeared first in Great Britain’s “Trending Central

I was one among dozens in February who packed the auditorium of Christ Church College, Oxford University to hear that circus act of a man, the Member of Parliament for Bradford West, George Galloway, debate the evils of ‘Zionist apartheid.’ His speech – littered with such witty remarks as ‘Israel is not kosher, it’s not even halal’ – was mostly met with laughter. After all, the man is a joke. But some jokes are offensive – others, racist.

Like many, I was left stunned by Galloway’s disgraceful actions. In walking out on my friend Eylon Aslan-Levy, Galloway confirmed what we had all thought about him for a very long time. As Eylon put it: “to refuse to talk to someone just because of their nationality is pure racism.”

The moment Hunter confronted Galloway

The moment Hunter confronted Galloway

Galloway is a man who gives speeches toHezbollah rallies in Beirut, who has interviewedMahmoud Ahmadinejad for Press TV – and of course, has rather disturbingly implied support for Bashar al-Assad. Yet he will refuse to have a constructive dialogue with a PPE undergraduate solely due to an accident of birth. Because he happens to hold a specific passport. Because his parents are different.

Galloway refuses to recognise my national and civic identity. He denies my cultural existence. In effect, like Hamas, he seeks the destruction of the State of Israel. This to me and many others is racism of the worst kind. I couldn’t just allow him to return to Oxford and pretend as if nothing happened last time – after all, he is notorious for denying some of his more outrageous statements (thank goodness for the internet).

By looking him in the eye and speaking to him in Hebrew, I wanted to show my fellow students that Galloway’s continuing behaviour is completely inexcusable.

And how does Galloway reply? By implying that I am a fascist, of course. By equating my holding of the flag of my homeland with English Defence League (EDL) thugs. By comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa. By comparing Zionism to Nazism. The usual rubbish. The standard anti-Zionist spiel.

So I’m a fascist? But George, you’re the one who addresses the fascists of Hezbollah at their anti-Semitic rallies. You’re the one who openly admired Saddam Hussein’s ‘courage.’ And don’t get me started on the Nazi comparison. Comparing the Jewish people to the perpetrators of their attempted destruction is a classic and recognised anti-Semitic trope.

It’s funny that Galloway almost soiled himself when I approached him – thinking there was a weapon under my sweater. His hands were visibly trembling. I don’t believe in violence against individuals – but it can be argued that those whom Galloway could count as fans most certainly do.

Galloway looks close to "losing it"

Galloway looks close to “losing it”

I need not elaborate that Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East. I don’t need to remind anyone of the steps Israel has taken for peace in the last twenty years: Oslo, Camp David, unilateral withdrawals from Lebanon and Gaza, a settlement freeze. Above all, it is unnecessary to stress how Israelis (like me) continuously yearn for peace. I would have rather debated that with Galloway. He did not bother to hear what Eylon had to say last time. In a speech far better than anything that ‘hapless’ Member of Parliament could spout from his big mouth, Eylon magnificently argued the case for the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of a negotiated final-status agreement. That is the official policy of the current Israeli government – and nearly all governments preceding it since Oslo.

It is truly perverse that for its first event this term, a debating chamber internationally renowned for its respect for free speech invited a man who denies that right to others on the basis of their nationality. Galloway epitomises everything the Oxford Union stands against. It is disgraceful that he was invited. It is even more disgraceful that he was sycophantically advertised as being one of the ‘most impressive debaters in Britain.’ I don’t know any ‘impressive’ debaters who walk out on their opponents. And I wouldn’t dream of hosting him as a ‘guest of honour,’ especially in light of the offence he caused to the Oxford student community when he last visited.

But as an important disclaimer, I must stress that I don’t deny Galloway’s right to free speech. I stand for constructive dialogue with others. My mocking imitation of Galloway’s behaviour was a statement to all, that on the political issues which divide us most, both sides must be heard. One opinion must not silence another. This is what debate means – and the Oxford Union’s invitation to Galloway is a slap in the face for all those who believe in that principle.

SEE UPDATE AT END OF ARTICLE

Remember when that virulently anti-Israel British politician, George Galloway…well there are so many ways to end that sentence, but this article refers to Galloway’s storming out of a debate at Oxford University because, as he so diplomatically announced before flouncing out of the room last February, “I don’t debate Israelis!”

Well Galloway was just had by a young Jew from Oxford who made his own dramatic exit after brandishing an Israeli flag, intoning: “I don’t debate racists!”

First the background.

The topic for debate of the world famous Oxford University debating society, the Oxford Union, on February 21 was: “Israel Should Withdraw Immediately From the West Bank.”

After Galloway, a member of Parliament representing England’s far northern district of West Bradford, completed his presentation of the “pro” side of that question, the person chosen to represent the “anti” position, Oxford University student Eylon Aslan-Levy, rose to present.

As it happens, Aslan-Levy favors what he calls “an end to the ‘Occupation.’” But his problem was with the timing desired:  Immediately.  He began his talk by referring to the failure, prior to the 2005 Disengagement, of guaranteeing Israeli security as a condition of handing over territory. He barely got the following words out before Galloway’s dramatic exit:

This is the lesson from the disengagement from Gaza in 2005, which I supported – out of the same misguided faith that the cards were in Israel’s hands. Israel uprooted over 8,000 settlers and evacuated the military – but without a pledge from the Palestinians not to fire rockets at Israeli towns over the very border to which Israel had just withdrawn. We wanted peace: we got war. We mustn’t make the same mistake again. [emphasis added]

Aslan-Levy barely closed his mouth around those syllables, when Galloway ejaculated: “You said we! Are you Israeli?”

When Aslan-Levy acknowledged that he was indeed Israeli, Galloway flung his coat over his shoulder, and bellowed over it: “I’ve been misled, sorry. I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis,” and then flounced out of the room, followed by his wife.

Fast-forward to Monday evening, October 14.  The setting is again Oxford University and the forum again is provided by the Oxford Union. This time there was no debate, it was just a talk by Galloway.

According to those who were present, Galloway spoke for over an hour, mainly maligning other British politicians, telling the student audience, “you couldn’t split the difference between the left [expletive implied] cheek and the right cheek.”

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was the prime recipient of Galloway’s verbal lacerations, but the usual far left bugaboos of  “occupation,” “colonialism” and “bankers” all score poorly in Galloway’s book and starred in his talk.  Taxation, on the other hand, is a dearly beloved concept.  When Galloway completed his talk, the floor was opened for questions.

After three questioners had their turn, Jonathan Hunter, an Oxford student, was selected as the fourth questioner. Hunter rose from the audience, gesticulating, and speaking in fluent Hebrew.

As Hunter approached the table behind which Galloway was sitting, the politician warned, “Don’t come any closer to me. What’s that up your jumper?” Galloway pointed at a bulge beneath Hunter’s sweater.  Hunter told The Jewish Press, “Galloway’s hands were shaking.”

With Galloway’s fears voiced, Hunter reached under his sweater and brandished what he had placed there, knowing he would not have been called on had it been publicly displayed before this moment:

“This is an Israeli flag, I’m an Israeli, Mr. Galloway.”

“You speak for fascists in Beirut [Hezbollah], you interviewed [former Iranian president] Ahmadinejad for Press TV,” but here Hunter was interrupted by Galloway who intoned, “you’re doing yourself a lot of harm here, son.”

Hunter again refused to be cowed, and responded to Galloway, “I think you did a lot of harm by not speaking to my friend Eylon [Aslan-Levy, referring to the February debate], and not having a constructive dialogue with him, and sir, I don’t have a question for you, as you can see, because I don’t debate with rascists. Thank you, sir.”

With that, Hunter opened the Israeli flag, hoisted it up over his head, holding it aloft and streaming behind him, he strode, stiff-necked, from the room.

George Galloway Reveals: Israel Behind Chemical Attack (Video)

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

George Galloway, the British pro-Hamas and pro-anything that can destroy civilization, has revealed to the world that Israel supplied Al Qaeda with chemical weapons to use against Syrians in the civil war against the Assad regime.

His accusations came the same week that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being behind the military coup in Egypt that ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi.

It is nice to know that Israel has so much power. It can engineer the end of a regime in Egypt. It can turn Al Qaeda into a close ally and manipulate it to attack Assad’s loyalists.

Since Israel obviously runs the world, it is clear that Netanyahu is behind the entire peace process show, is manipulating the Boycott Israel movement and is bankrolling the next mayor of New York City, no matter who he will be.

Galloway could be laughed at as a jerk, which he is. No mainstream leader listens to him.

But “mainstream” is becoming an endangered species in Europe, where the growing anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic population will believe anything and everything if Israel comes out stinking. That is why Galloway last year won a surprise victory in a special election to win a seat in the British Parliament, representing a district that has large number of Muslims.

In his speech on Friday, which was posted on a video by the Iranian government’s Press TV, Galloway commented on the chemical attack in Syria.”

He declared, “If there’s been any use of nerve gas it’s the rebels that used it. If there has been a use of chemical weapons it was Al-Qaeda that used the chemical weapons – who gave al-Qaeda the chemical weapons? Here’s my theory, Israel gave them the chemical weapons.”

Well, at least he said it was only a theory. Erdogan went one better, or one worse, by saying he had evidence that Israel was behind the ouster of Morsi. And when the United States rejected his charges, Erdogan followed up on Saturday that he was “saddened” that the White House chose to respond. His comments were directed at Israel and not the Obama administration, he told a crowd in his home town.

“What is it to the White House that it should respond? It should not have mentioned it; it should not had reacted like this. As two members of NATO, that one ally shows this kind of approach to the other is not appropriate.”

Galloway does not need evidence, false or not. All he needs is an audience, and his is growing.
