Hamas Supporter George Galloway Sues Journalist

British comedian and part-time politician George Galloway is a proven supporter of Hamas as evidenced by his Viva Palestina trips to Gaza and his deliveries of cash and other goodies to Hamas, which in turn has a charter that calls for not only the destruction of Israel but the deaths of Jews.
Nonetheless, George is now suing a British journalist for tweeting that he (Galloway) has often crossed the line from anti-Israel to anti-semitic.
Galloway fervently denies the charge of anti-semitism, but he should choose his friends more carefully (Hamas etc). In addition, he is hardly sensitive to the topic of anti-semitism on the part of his compatriots as I found out on May 21, 2009 at UC Irvine. That was the evening when George spoke and passed collection boxes around the room where money was dropped-money that George later took to Gaza and dropped in Hamas' lap.
I think I will contact the Guardian and offer myself as a witness in the journalist's defense.
