George Galloway is the face the British left’s desire to destroy Israel, as ugly as it gets.  As Christopher Hitchens put it, George Galloway Is Gruesome, Not Gorgeous.

Galloway is a member of the British Parliament, and the misleadingly named Respect Party.

Galloway showed his ugly political face once again when he stormed out of a debate upon realizing that his debate opponent was Israeli, as reported by The Times of Israel:

British MP George Galloway quit a debate on Israel at Oxford University Wednesday after discovering that his opponent was an Israeli citizen. The Respect party legislator, who is renowned for being staunchly pro-Palestinian, stormed out of the building saying: “I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.”

British MP George Galloway quit a debate on Israel at Oxford University Wednesday after discovering that his opponent was an Israeli citizen. The Respect party legislator, who is renowned for being staunchly pro-Palestinian, stormed out of the building saying: “I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.”

Galloway was first to speak in the debate, opining in favor of the statement “Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank” for 10 minutes. But midway into his opponent’s address, in which the third-year student referred repeatedly to Israel as “we” and “us,” Galloway inquired whether the speaker, Eylon Aslan-Levy, was Israeli. Upon learning that he was, the MP stormed out of the building with his wife, claiming that he was misled.

“I refused this evening to debate with an Israeli, a supporter of the Apartheid state of Israel,” Galloway said in a statement late on Wednesday evening. “The reason is simple; No recognition, No normalization. Just Boycott, divestment and sanctions, until the Apartheid state is defeated.”

Aslan-Levy, 21, who has joint British-Israeli citizenship, described Galloway’s remarks as “appalling.”

“It’s deeply offensive to refuse to speak to someone because of their nationality. It’s pure racism,” he said in an interview to the Times. “The fact that a sitting member of Parliament could do this is all the more astonishing.”

British society suffers from an ancient sickness, epitomized by George Galloway.
