British MP George Galloway storms out of debate when finds out opponent is Israeli

British MP George Galloway storms out of debate when finds out opponent is Israeli

Galloway’s ugly anti-Israel face revealed once again

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.

This, my dear friends on the Left, is what racism actually looks like.

What a spoiled, rotten brat! What a piece of work this jerk is!

“The fact that a sitting member of Parliament could do this is all the more astonishing.”

Not really. Gallowsway is a Collectivist puke. He’s just more brazen than many, but this is who they are.

And every Democrat in the US Congress, and every member of the Administration at the deputy undersecretary level on up looks on in wide eyed amazement and admiration. And more than a few wish that they could be as open about their true feelings here as Galloway is in Britain.

A particularly ugly example of today’s left: he drools over dictators and abuses words, like “respect” and “tolerance”.

I’m having a vision of Chuck Hagel, hitting himself in the head like an actor in a V8 commercial, asking himself, “Now why didn’t I think of that?!?”

I always thought a classical Debate was where your team took a theoretical stand & debated it through various means & logics & even manipulations to best effect.

This is why University Debate Clubs breed lawyers & politicians & actors. Nobody ever believed what they were arguing.

Debate skits have been the backbone of British humour . Check out The Young Ones in an inter varsity debate with the opposing team consisting of Hugh Laurie , Helene Bonham Carter & Stephen Fry. 80s hilarity.

This is just a public argument which is fine – it is just not a debate .

Racistly?

Based on my knowledgde of history, I do not recognize the Arabs in Israel, Gaza, Judea, and Samaria as Palestinians and never apply that name to them. I call them what they are, Arabs.

Now, let’s apply that to Galloway. If he doesn’t recognize Israel then to his mind there are no Israelis. There are just Jews.

So, what we have here on fully display is not just an anti-Israel rant. It’s the same anti-Jew sickness that has a long and vivid history in England, something the Brits have never bothered to rid themselves of. This sickness will eventually destroy them. That is the way of history.

    Would you care to list their history of anti Jew hatred in point form?

    Lets judge it against historical events. Have they had pogroms , ghettoes , been denied lordships or property , or access to law , academia or public life? Are synagogues burnt down ?

    No . Apart from a 13th century business exile , they have been there since the Moors drove them out of Southern Europe. They are top lawyers ,business persons ,scientists , academics, & lords.

    There is no Babi Ya. here is no Buchenwald or Jewish settlement zones. They were not over represented in the convicts sent to Australia – . they were not political prisoners.

    The British are not anti Semite Catholics. Get a grip.

      Go back and read history. Who did the Brits blame for the Great Fire of London? It wasn’t the Arabs. The Brit position wrt Jews has ever been use them as bankers for the country and turn on them when the going gets rough. Let’s not pretend Brit hands are clean wrt Jews. It was Brit anti-Semitism that caused only a small portion of the land to be returned to the Jews in Palestine. What we are seeing in Britain is not an anomaly. We are seeing the norm.

    Bevis Marks Synagogue – built in 1701 to cater for the influx of Spanish Portuguese Jews escaping Catholicism – is the only 300 year plus continual service synagogue in Europe.

    It was a built with the funds of England’s first Jewish Knight & the building assistance of a Quaker who is said to have refused payment to build a House of God. in 2001 The Duke of Edinburgh attended the ceremony.

    So to 2013 there are 300,000 Jewish in GB & Galloway is entitled to free speech & the Israeli student -you notice – has not been excluded from Britain or Oxford or speaking his mind.

    Jewish success in England or elsewhere is not necessarily an evidence of philosemitism in England or elsewhere. It’s an evidence of the Jewish talent and the Jewish drive. We were successful against tall odds in quite a few places.

I understand the concerns but being familiar with George Galloway over the decades, it seems to me that Galloway leaving any room cannot be anything but positive, at least for the room.

Galloway is a poltroon, a serial womaniser, almost certainly on the take from some of the most vicious Islamist regimes in the world, a vile anti-Semite, an unrepentant Communist and altogether one of the most repulsive individuals ever to have held public office in the UK. Unfortunately his views resonate with a sufficiently large section of the population as for him to have a platform on which to spew them. Tower Hamlets in London is essentially now an Islamist ghetto, and people like Galloway can indulge this sort of hatred there without fear of repercussions. I used to live in Bradford. I would never do so again. Parts of it have now been effectively ethnically cleansed. Galloway and RESPECT are the genuine enablers of an apartheid regime. They are very, very dangerous.

speaking of racism… here’s the clear reason why dems want bun control. …this is an eye-opener.

what the dem is saying is… they are so afraid of women being so hysterical, too emotional, and too stupid that women should only be allowed access to whistles, call boxes, safe zones, tazers and maces …when assaulted by 1 or 4 rapists. but no guns …he doesn’t say it directly, but he implies it that they’d rather the women just be defenseless and raped or killed… rather than allow them access to a gun to give them an edge in their defense.

10 out of 10 rapists would agree with him – that a defenseless female is easier to rape – and that a gun makes it very difficult if the rapist ends up dead.

even more funny is this tho

Dems think people should learn judo instead of have guns for defense. (do you know how long it takes to get a black belt? and do you know how impossible it is to use a judo move on 2-3 attackers 20-30 feet away from you armed with a firearm/firearms?)
