George Galloway Speech in Jordan

George Galloway and friends in Iraq

British MP George Galloway, who is a friend of the Palestinian cause, will insist up and down that he is not anti-Semitic-only anti-Israel. If that is true, he sure has a habit of surrounding himself with folks who are anti-Semites-and make no bones about it. The Investigative Project on Terrorism, headed by Steven Emerson, has this video of Galloway speaking in Jordan in December 2009. Before viewing it, you should anticipate the following:

Before he begins his speech, his followers chant, "Khaybar, Khaybar, ah Yahud. Jaish Mohammed sa yaoud", a reference to a battle in which the prophet Mohammed defeated a Jewish fortress in Khaybar (present-day Saudi Arabia). The phrase basically means, "Oh Jews, the army of Mohammed is returning." This chant has been heard in various parts of the world in recent years. What do you think the implication is?

Galloway, in his introductory remarks, pays homage to among others, the ex-prime minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohammed, who has made headlines in recent years making numerous hateful references to Jews-as a people.

Here is my point: Let's put it in another perspective. If you are going to deny that you harbor racist attitudes toward blacks, why would you pay homage to someone like say David Duke? Would you speak in front of an audience that chanted racist slogans directed toward blacks as a people? Of course not. Would you invite Ku Klux Klan members to accompany you to Gaza on your Viva Palestina convoys? No. In fact, Galloway has been accompanied on at least one convoy by the ever-odious New York City Councilman and race monger Charles Barron as well as Cynthia McKinney (who has her own Jewish issues). Another individual who went on a Viva Palestina convoy last year was a writer for La Voz de Aztlan, a viciously anti-Semitic blog in Los Angeles.

George Galloway is entitled to take the Palestinian position in the Middle East conflict. But when his audience starts chanting slogans that imply death to Jews, common decency would require that he firmly distance himself from such remarks.

But this is George Galloway.

He openly supports, praises, and expresses admiration toward men like Nasrallah, Ismail Hanya and Ahmedinejad, all of whom are clearly racist war mongers with genocidal ambitions

Thanks for pointing that out. Galloway is a radical nut who has dirtied his hands with a whole host of disreputable characters in and out of the Middle East. He also has blood on his hands from the last VP convoy in which an Egyptian border guard was killed.

I'm pretty sure Galloway doesn't speak Arabic - so how would he know what they are chanting?

Nathan said...

What a pathetic attempt to smear a man who has always been supportive of peaceful solutions to conflicts. And Roman - Ahmedinejad is a warmonger? It is the US that has the CIA in there trying their best to undermine yet another foreign government, the the US constantly pushing for sanctions against Iran. It is not unreasonable to demand a much more fair and balanced approach to the middle east problem, and start holding Israel's feet to the fire to return to the negotiating table, and actually respect Geneva conventions in respect to their aggressive land confiscations in Lebanon and Palestine.

P.S. - Did you really have to include that photo from a comedy show to try to discredit him further? Pathetic...

Hey Nathan,

I didn't put Galloway in that costume. He put himself in it. The fact of the matter is that Galloway is a radical jerk who has embarrassed his country with his antics. He also has blood on his hands over the murder of that Egyptian border guard during the last Viva Palestina convey. And make no mistake. Galloway is hardly the peacemaker you make him out to be. If you check out the website of La voz de aztlan, you will see that one of the editors/writers of this viciously anti-semitic site accompanied Galloway on one of his convoys.

He supports a people who is under fire and death
you don't read news papers or watch TV?
Israeli Army soldiers kill everyday and destroy Palestinian houses to apply their colonialism plans
I remember in their war with Lebanon, their soldiers kill a group of children (they were like angels) .. in qana.
2006 Qana airstrike: On 30 July 2006, during the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict, Israeli airstrikes hit an apartment building. The Lebanese Red Cross originally stated that at least 56 people were killed, 32 of whom were children. Human Rights Watch later announced that at least 22 people escaped the basement, and 28 are confirmed dead, of which 16 were children, with 13 more still missing.
From wikipedia.

This is a story from thousands of stories proved by pictures and photos.

Anonymous commentator,

Thanks for your anonymous advice, but I know plenty about Israel's enemies-especially George Galloway.
