    Default George Galloway - hyprocrite and bigot.

    Scottish MP, George Galloway is no stranger to controversy. But he has been defended for his willingness to meet anyone with an open mind, free of judgment. In 1994, he met the genocidal Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein and told him, "Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability." So far, so eyebrow-raising. But like we said, he's willing to meet anyone, right?

    Wrong. It seems that while mass-murderers who use nerve gas on their own populations are acceptable, ordinary Israeli citizens aren't. Last night, during a debate at Oxford University, Galloway stormed out when he realised he was debating with a young Israeli. He left the debating chamber shouting, "I don’t debate with Israelis”. I don't recognize Israeli citizens."

    Now, surely even the most hardline anti-Israel person here will see the problem with this?

    He has no problem supporting Assad and his goons who are butchering the people of Syria, no problem supporting Hezbollah or Hamas or the Iranian regime either.

    ****************************** him.

    2006 called. It wants to remind you that Galloway's a moron.

    Galloway interrupted the third-year philosophy, politics and economics student at Brasenose college when Aslan-Levy used the word "we" in reference to Israel.

    "You said 'we'," said Galloway. "Are you an Israeli?"

    "I am, yes," Aslan-Levy replied.

    "I don't debate with Israelis. I have been misled, sorry," Galloway said, standing and putting on his coat, then reiterating as he walked out: "I don't recognise Israel and I don't debate with Israelis."
    He's racist. It's plan and simple. If he'd refused to deal with a muslim, an arab or a Christian it would be the same thing.

    Another Twitter user, who describes herself as a "proud mum" and "progressive Jew", asked Galloway: "Out of interest would you refuse to meet with a constituent if they had Israeli citizenship?"
    A pretty fair question.

    Bit odd though that he refused to discuss with a Student (a highly educated one, it seems with the course he is doing), in England
    He openly supports terrorist attacks on Israel. He is a hated filled extremist piece of ******************************ing sh*t.

    A 'critic' who is not prepared to put his 'critisisms' to the test.

    I would expect him to have the intelligence and good grace to debate with the young person, not treat him as a non-entity. Then again, he is George Galloway so his IQ is not the highest petunia
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.
