George Galloway boycotts 6 million Jews


To those who don’t believe that BDS and other forms anti-Zionist agitation often lead to racism, here’s a video posted today at the site of the Oxford University Student Union.

The Respect MP (and ‘Comment is Free’ contributor) had just begun to debate Eylon Aslan-Levy, a student at Brasenose, a constituent college of Oxford, on the motion ‘Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank’.

Here’s what transpired next.

 

Galloway had been “misled”.  He wouldn’t have agreed to participate if he knew he was debating an Israeli.  He said:

 “I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.

(I guess we can assume his policy of exclusion doesn’t extend to Muslim and Arab citizens of the state.)

So, out of a population of roughly 13.5 million Jews in the world, 6 million live in Israel. 

George Galloway, who has paid homage to Saddam Hussein, “glorified” Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, and even praised the Syrian butcher, Bashar al-Assad, doesn’t respect 44% of the world’s Jews.

Whilst there is always the danger of using gratuitous political analogies in even the most sincere attempts to characterize the extreme malevolence of the BDS movement, there is a passage in a book about European Jewish history I read a while back which used a darkly evocative term that seems, at least in this context, historically apt.

The book, ‘The fate of European Jews’, by Leni Yahil, characterized the effects of the Nuremberg Laws and other antisemitic measures enacted by Germany in the 1930s as condemning the nation’s Jews to a “social death” – an idea which resonates at least when contextualizing the political objectives of some of the most extreme anti-Israel activists.

George Galloway, by, in effect, boycotting and refusing to recognize the moral legitimacy of Israelis (and not merely the state or its institutions), is attempting to consign six million Jewish men, women and children to pariah status, and social exclusion from the international community.

This is the hideously racist moral place the malign obsession with the Jewish state – often the sine qua non of the BDS movement – inevitably leads.

  1. Great piece Adam.

    There is a distinct difference in disagreeing with the policies of a state and propagating the annihilation of its people. Since Galloway was awarded a “Palestinian” Passport by Haniyeh of Hamas, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7939480.stm it must be taken that he supports Hamas with its genocidal charter (read articles 7 and 13) http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/hamas.asp

    In case some might say well that was 1988 and Hamas is now a legitimate political party elected democratically in Gaza, do watch these links for proof perfect that Hamas still is that same organisation that calls for the genocide of all Jews worldwide – Mahmoud Al Zahar states clearly that there is no place for the Jews amongst the nations of the world http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=0KgupoduYR0&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D0KgupoduYR0 Haniyeh reaffirms Hamas commitment to Genocide http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=ZBFPVwh1h_Y&feature=related and Ahmad Bahr Hamas MP on the hustings 24/7 on Pally TV http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=qMkQGjQ8dWI&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DqMkQGjQ8dWI&gl=GB

    Together with his acceptance of the Hamas “Palestinian” passport comes an allegiance to its charter that calls for Genocide of all Jews worldwide. Does Galloway know he supports this or is he just a greedy self serving fool?

    • Lawrence – It is unbelievable that nut..i mean nat didn’t get his post in before you telling us how obsessed we are with Ali g.g.

  2. I actually think he would accuse Israeli Muslim/Arab Zionists of being ‘traitors’ to Palestine and would also refuse to debate with them.

  3. Interesting that George Galloway doesn’t accept that Israel exists.

    From ‘Hansard’ 12 Feb. 2013: Column 652W

    “George Galloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will condemn Israeli air attacks on targets in Syria. [141977]”

    So why is he taking up time in asking if a non-existent country is allegedly attacking Syria?

    Although the slimy little weasel is as much a stranger to consistency as he is to truth and honesty. He is such a narcissistic little self-publicisng creep that he cannot see a passing bandwagon and resist the urge to jump on it. Such a pity that he doesn’t jump under it rather than on it.

  4. Galloway is an antisemite; as clear as they come!
    Antisemitism has always found different ‘justifications’. Today is no different. Now it is Israel that serves as the ‘justification’. It’s just the new face of antisemitism.

    • Every community that galloway has been an MP for since his dismissal from the labour party has had a substantual muslim population and i have heard rumours that galloway has submitted to the dark side and embraced islam

      • ? The dark side is the Hitler youth ambition he has and the love of dictators rather than any convention he may have had.

        • When it comes to the love of dictators even the most basic research will show that galloway has major form on that

      • Sorry, but you are delusional. Islam’s got everything to do with it. Time to drop the politically correct nonsense.

      • With him walking out? You are absolutely right. Nevertheless, Islam is riding this liberal hate-filled Anti-Zionist campaign to win the hearts and minds of people in secular Western countries. It is happening in the UK and France, from what I can tell, right now. There are debates going on in Parliament regarding Sharia Law, BDS debates as well.

        My point was the more we apologize for Islam, the more that it lends credence to nut bars like this who walk out of a debate simply because “he does not debate with Israelis.” Do you not get that this extremist nutjob is an MP in the British Parliament.

        I’m not sure how you don’t see the obvious connection between Islamism, Anti-Zionism, and antisemitism. It really doesn’t require you to take any large leaps of reasoning. Perhaps you are not seeing the connection because (a) you have never studied Islam or (b) you’re abiding by the Islamic invention of criticizing Islam as Islamaphobia. You are missing a vital piece of the puzzle.

        Instead of branding me a bigot or an Islamaphobe, do some research. You will find that it is no phobia, as phobia connotes an “irrational fear.” Don’t believe me. See for yourself. It is an entirely rational fear. Moreover, as I’ve said in earlier posts, those “Muslims” who do not practice or follow the precepts of the faith are not Muslim. There are those, I must warn you, who don’t practice or follow, but side with the terrorists, side with the executioners, side with the brutal regimes bent on the destruction of Israel and the West. They don’t organize and attend rallies condemning the outrage against al-Assad, or against the rioting and murder of American diplomats in N Af. and ME countries. They don’t attend rallies to decry the savagery of the Taliban against Afghan women and girls, or to condemn the brutal regime of Khomeini in Iran, which executes homosexuals and who knows who else. They don’t hold rallies chastise European gov’ts for recognizing Hamas, a brutal regime which exposes their population to poverty and persecutions of all sorts. I am no bigot. I am no Islamaphobe.

          • It is not racist, as I’ve said at least 3 times below because you are a weasel that is trying to get a last word that I will not see to reply to you.
            The onus is on you to provide the proof that I am indeed racist. I left you some pointers below, weasel.
            Cutting and pasting is not enough. You have to provide a cogent conclusion to that quotation because without it no one knows what the fuck you are talking about. Give us a little direction, you brainless twit. Otherwise, you are misleading people by pulling my words out of context to suit your malicious needs.

            You are dumb; pure and simple. You are an antisemite; pure and simple. You are a propagandist; pure and simple. You are a liar and a coward; pure and simple. You can never offer a counter argument–pure and simple–because all you are capable of is stringing two words together and making ridiculous accusations. You are plain and simple; plain and simple.

    • We need to educate ourselves in the Koran, the hadiths, and Sharia law, so we can demonstrate to others with conviction that Islam is a murderous and sadistic mega-cult

      Wow, what a horribly racist and disgusting comment. You are sickening. Moderators, should you choose to actually be committed to stopping racism, rather than just paying lip-service, you may want to consider banning “Daniel” and his hate speech.

      • Listen, Knight of Hypcrishire, quite your blog-police fantasy. You have no credibility whatsoever to pontificate about other people’s views. If you dislike the blog, just piss off. No one will miss your hypocritical crap. Go join “nat” to create your own blog of whiners.

      • It’s not racism. It’s a rational fear of a destructive ideology. Do you even know the definition of racism?

        Call it hate speech if you like. Why should I be silenced when I criticize and call to question an ideology that is bent on my destruction, simply because I am Jewish? Why must I remain silent when this same ideology wants to kill “unbelievers” (Christians and pagans) and assume Islamic supremacy over the globe? Why must I remain silent when Muslims say openly and in News interviews that they will devote all their resources toward advancing the cause of creating a world based on the rule of Sharia? When they say they will take over from the inside through the voter pool? How is that hate speech?

        You may view my comments “disgusting,” “sickening,” or racist. That’s because you are a left-wing apologist who likes to spin my comments to fit your agenda. Take your time to study the Islamic tradition and culture. If you are not an antisemite, you will see I am in no way way sick or disgusting.

        Now get lost, Nat.

          • How was it racist? I spelled it out as clearly as I could, since you are obviously slow and severely lacking in cognitive skills. Go back and read it again and again. Take notes if you have. Maybe build a profile on all the comments I’ve made. Try to connect the dots. Oh wait, look who I’m talking to. You are not capable of that, not even remotely. You, Nat, are a copy-and-paste retard that can’t formulate a thought of your own. You are a joke.

            • I am not Nat.

              Your comment was racist by the most racist precepts of assigning cosmic evil to a people group based on their culture, etc. That’s racism. Your comment was textbook. NOw get lost.

              • YOU get lost, with your hysterical repetitive idiotic accusations. Go join “nat” and church-lady in your own blog of moralistic hypocrites.

              • I don’t think you really understand the term “racism.” I “assign a cosmic evil to a people group based on their” sadistic religion and rule of law. If I have the proof to back up the assertion that their religion and rule of law are indeed sadistic–and I can–then it is not Islamaphobia–which is what it’s called and not racism–because it’s an entirely rational fear based on tangible evidence.

                You are a textbook liar and coward. You can only post lies (the cut-and-paste version) that defend your positions because, ultimately, your position is not in line with reality. You take quotes out of context because you’ve failed to make a point. You take those quotes and provide no theories as to what you think they represent. You just cut and paste because you are a coward. Yes. I said coward. You allege one thing and then someone proves you wrong, then you go off on another and another. It’s because you can’t defend your position. You are a coward. Being the coward that you are, you resort to branding me a racist (or my comment) because all other avenues of rebuttal have been effectively blocked.

              • Yes, I’m such a coward because of these things that you say. You are a lunatic. Seriously, you should get some pills or something.

                Try replacing all of your comments where you say Islam or Muslims with Judaism or Jews and then tell me that it’s not racist. You are a sickening dipshit who makes disgusting racist comments, which even the vacilating pretzelberg thinks are racist. Only your fuckbuddy SerJew seems to think otherwise, but he’s a “coward”, so I wouldn’t take that as a compliment.

    • Islam is a murderous and sadistic mega-cult … We cannot allow these Dark Age primitives pollute the global psyche

      And CiFWatch publishes entire articles complaining about BTL bigoted comments on the Guardian website.

      While seemingly having zero problem with this kind of crap.

      • Instead of branding me a bigot or an Islamaphobe, do some research. You will find that it is no phobia, as phobia connotes an “irrational fear.” Don’t believe me. See for yourself.

They don’t hold rallies chastise European gov’ts for recognizing Hamas, a brutal regime which exposes their population to poverty and persecutions of all sorts. I am no bigot. I am no Islamaphobe.

        As I’ve said, in more words or less, Arabs are not primitives. Islam, the ideology, is primitive and sadistic. That’s why the Middle East and N Af. are in disarray. That is why there are so many savages in that region. They care not for humanity or civilization. They only care for Islamic supremacy, and if they have to behead you in the process they will.

    • I’m not Jewish but a confirmed Christian, and I stand up for Israel. I like to let the losers on the David Icke Forum know it to.

  5. It is not Galloway who should have withdrawn from the debate upon learning thatb he was debating with anIsraeli; but the Isareli who should have done the witddrawal; in the way that few Jews today agree to confront the now-widely discredited one-trick pony, Holocaust denier, David Irving.

  6. Galloway made the most basic error in politics – to leave the platform to an opponent! That at least gives us a valid stick to beat him with not being a valid negotiating party like his principals and principles, which explains why they are still where the are.

  7. What is wrong with you illogical dough-brains. Not recognising Israel is not racism or antisemitism. Israel is a controversial state that is not exclusively Jewish in its population and is in fact populated by many races. Therefore those residing in Israel and going under the collective noun of Israelis are of no distinct race. Thus, being anti-Israel is not being racist.

    • sroughley before you charge in and refer to anyone as ‘dough-brains’ and write sentences such as “Therefore those residing in Israel and going under the collective noun of Israelis are of no distinct race.”, it would have been better if you had bothered to check what the position in England and Wales is, as Galloway is an M.P. in England and the offence took place in England.
      A racist offence is where “the accused person demonstrated hostility, or was motivated by hostility towards the victim because of the victim’s membership of a racial group.”
      “Racial group- this is a legal definition and means any group of people who are defined by reference to their race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origin.”

      Criticising Israel may not be racist, but to single out people because they are Israeli clearly is.

        • No sroughley, it is you who are wrong. Section 3(1) of the Race Relations Act 1976 defines a “racial group” to which the Act refers as Gerald set out above. Most pertinetly to this discussion, it includes “a group of persons defined by reference to … nationality or ethnic or national origins…”

          In fact, section 3(2) goes on to address your point that Israelis consist of many ethnic groups. It says: “The fact that a racial group comprises two or more distinct racial groups does not prevent it from constituting a particular racial group for the purposes of this Act.”

          Any questions?

          • Well you learn something everyday. I honestly had no idea the meaning of race was so vague and unscientific. Seems there’s even a whole area of study designated to what race even means. Makes labelling someone racist almost pointless.

            At any rate he was not being antisemitic, a racist it would appear and a moron yes, but not antisemitic.

                • Denying the antisemitism of Galloway is telling.
                  It suggest that your behaviour is inclined to follow that of Galloway. But why so shy and deny his antisemitism when you admire him for that?

                • @In Resonse to Fritz Wunderlich (the reply button does not appear on your post)

                  Oh dear. Where to begin with the problems in your post!.

                  1. At no point am I denying the antisemitism of Galloway. It is clear from what I have said that I am stating that his behaviour in this instance is not antisemitic.
                  2. Your second statement that my behaviour is inclined to follow that of Galloway is dependent on the first and incorrect statement and is therefore itself incorrect.
                  3. In none of my posts have I suggested that I admire this man. I have even agreed that his behaivour is racist and that he acted like a moron.
                  4., You are not exactly clear as to your point? What exactly have you gleamed from your incorrect assumptions that is ‘telling’?

                • Did you just threaten me Fritz? My word you are out of line aren’t you.

                  At what point did I defend Galloway? I am merely correcting a gross logical leap that has been made, namely that Galloway’s refusal to engage in a debate on Israel with an Israeli is antisemitic.

                • Fritz – I disagree with Sroughley – I think Galloway is an antisemite, and he walked out on this debate because of that. (N.B. sroughley, I hate to go all lawyer-ish on you again, but I firmly believe that his behaviour and stated beliefs on this occasion (as on many others) squarely falls within the EUMC definition of antisemitism – see “Howe we define antisemitism on this site), but you are entirely wrong to accuse him/her of “defending” Galloway, and I think your accusations that he/she is somehow antisemitic because he/she disagrees with you over the nature of Galloway’s actions is frankly absurd.

                  Please reconsider.

                • Haha! I only just had a look around this site. I had initially come here following a Google search for this Galloway fracas and I had no idea that this place is not a news website. I will not bother you again but before I leave I must make it clear that I am NOT an antisemite and to be clear on the meaning of this I do not not hate or harbour any ill feeling towards Jews at all. However I am very opposed to nationalism of any sort due to its divisive and racist nature and I hope this goes some way to explaining my actions here.

                  Goodbye

                • @ Labena
                  1. He defends Galloway and himself by denying Galloway `s Antisemitism.
                  2. Consider this.
                  3. The art of polemics you should not mistake for a discussion searching for truth. An Antisemit never searches for truth but the best way to spread antisemitc propaganda.

      • It’s actually bigotry. Look up the two definitions, bigotry and racism. It’s important to note that there are Black Israelis, White Israelis, Brown Israelis, and every color in between brown and white. So saying you won’t debate with an Israeli is not racism; it is bigotry. We all know it wasn’t bigotry, however. It was clearly antisemitism, since he meant Jews. Nevertheless, I must say my piece on why it’s dangerous to classify Jews as a race.

        Bigotry got lumped in with racism because of narrow-minded views. When Jews were targeted in Poland, they were targeted because they were Jewish. Yes, they may have used the term “Jewish race,” but that doesn’t diminish the fact that Poles were targeting other Poles, who bore similar resemblance (both being White and all), because they were deemed outsiders. So you see, they were both of the same race but one was not viewed the same as the other. Racism, while there is no consensus on a definition (mostly due to postcolonialist leftards), is rooted in science and did not see past all the trivial categories save for the pigment of skin. Bigotry, however, encompasses a wider spectrum when we are referring to Jews: socioeconomic status, ethnicity, language, nationality, political alignment, race, religious or spiritual belief, for example.

        The reason I had to make this distinction is because the view that Jews are a race is inherently antisemitic. It is what Hitler used to say to make all Germans hate all Jews, everywhere. We are not a race. We are an ethnic community with ethnic separations. I am a Canadian Jew, not the same as an American Jew, due to an ethnic divide. I am certainly not the same as a Spanish Jew or a Caribbean Jew. We share the same heritage. We share a bond that transcends all these ethnic divides, yes, but we are not a race. We are one of the longest surviving ethnic communities on this planet. We even have Chinese Jews from Kaifeng, all of whom look nothing like me, yet we share the same heritage. We are an ethnic community that spans all races and an impressive amount of ethnic communities, both now and in previous generations. We are not a race. That would be antisemitic.

        • “since he meant Jews.”

          Did he? Did he tell you that himself did he? He certainly didn’t announce it on that video clip.

          • That’s the point, sir. Anti-Semites nowadays, in our hypocritically PC multicultural muddle, cannot openly say they hate Jews. Fortunately for them, they now have the anti-Zionist/anti-Israel masquerade.

          • I don’t see how a simpleton like you could be capable of deducing that his stance on Israel has something to do with his prejudice against Jews.

          • Their ideology is toxic. But its trendy now. Why? Because assholes like you love that you can openly express your antisemitism under the banner of Anti-Zionism.

            Let’s get this straight, Arabs are not primitives. Islam is primitive and sadistic. That’s why the Middle East and N Af. are in disarray. That is why there are so many savages in that region. They care not for humanity or civilization. They only care for Islamic supremacy, and if they have to behead you in the process they will.

            If you are too daft to see the difference between hating Jews just because they are Jewish and hating Islam and its adherents for completely logical and rational reasons, then I suggest you devote as much time as I do into researching the Muslim faith.

    • I think you are a bit off kilter. Being anti-Israel is not bigotry. It’s antisemitism. It’s not racist, but it’s antisemitism. It’s not bigotry either. It’s antisemitism. I may have said below my piece about Jews being a special type of ethnic group, but that was for a different purpose. If you look up the Eu definition of antisemitism, you will see one of the definitions sounds almost identical to what George said in the video. It’s antisemitism.

  8. Where does a: religious, colour or linguistic group shade off into an ethnicity, and as a result of what social forces?

    • Oh here we go again. It’s Sanity, the blog police, trying to tell Adam Levick what he can and can’t publish on his blog.

      Boring!

      • Is it Adam’s blog or is it all of our blog? Or is CiF Watch a separate entity that owns the blog? All these questions remain,despite my valiant attempts, shrouded in mystery!!!

        • You’re right. It’s all terribly mysterious. Don’t worry though. I called in Scooby and Shaggy to get to the bottom of it. In the end, Velma pulled off Adam Levick’s mask and revealed his true identity.

          Was it … Mr Netanyahu or Mr Rothschild?

          No – it’s Old Mr Withers, the cleaner at Guardian Towers who is spreading false rumours about the Guardian because they took away his favourite broom cupboard and turned it into Harriet Sherwood’s office.

          Phew. Mystery solved.

      • Too funny from someone that purports to tell The Guardian what it can and cannot publish on its blogs.

        • Yet again you (supported by Sanity) fail to distinguish between criticism and censorship. I don’t tell the Guardian what it can and can’t publish. It is an independent publisher, and can publish whatever it wants within the law. I do, however, reserve the right to criticise those choices and the contents of what it chooses to publish.

          I also reserve the right to add my voice to that of CifWatch to attempt to influence the Guardian to amend its choices so that they are more reflective of reality, and in line with its stated aim of being a “leading liberal voice”.

          You, of course, have a similar right to do the same on CifWatch, but as you and your fellows often point out, the Guardian is somewhat more significant and widely read than CifWatch, so I think it is far more important to ensure the Guardian is fair and accurate than to monitor standards on CifWatch.

  9. Two Telegraph blog articles about this, neither open to comments. They are terrified that the excessively litigious, malignantly narcissistic Galloway might sue them for whatever distinctly honest comments might be posted below the line.

    The “up” side to all this is that Meow Galloway has once again made a horse’s backside of himself and publicly. No doubt he’ll tell himself a story that the catcalls and laughter as he made his ignominious exit were in support of him, but Meow has lost another of his nine lives. Terminal narcisstic injury looms

  10. Just to please Sanity.
    In an interview in ‘The Guardian’ September 16th 2002 which stout defender of human rights said this?

    “Yes, I did support the Soviet Union, and I think the disappearance of the Soviet Union is the biggest catastrophe of my life. If there was a Soviet Union today, we would not be having this conversation about plunging into a new war in the Middle East, and the US would not be rampaging around the globe.”

  11. “…..and i have heard rumours that galloway has submitted to the dark side and embraced islam”

    Interesting.

  12. What a complete arse. I do like the way the audience has a laugh at him as he heads out, though.

    GG looks even more ridiculous given that the other speaker is in favour of a 2-state solution! It’s just the timing where he disagrees with GG.

      • Stop trying to mislead people. I replied to your ridiculous insinuations on another blog entry as well as this one. My response to this donkey:

          • Get lost, Nat. I have nothing to apologize for. I am not a racist, but you are definitely an antisemite. Now jump off a bridge and do us all a favor.

            • Please provide evidence for the claim that I am an antisemite. I deny it in the strongest terms.

              I never said that you were racist, only that your comment was. I stand by that.

              • Your petty grievances with Adam, your choice of rhetoric, your childish picking at every detail hoping to get us on something, your staunch support for antisemites–you say it’s not support, yet you apologize like hell for ‘em–and your use of BS materials to back up a claim you can’t back up any other way, all this leads me to believe that you are an antisemite. You can deny it if you like, but if I can see it then everyone else here can too.

  13. There is no proof 6 million Jews died, Jews need to start questioning their leaders because they’ve caused nothing but persecution of their own kind.

    • Are you SHOCKED really? Maybe this is one of the reasons that you you think every reader of this blog is on your subzero intellectual level – the level of the so called -I don’t hat Jews only the Zionist – crowd.
      The Guardian article is criticising your comrade Galloway because his tactical mistake and not because his obvious anti-Semitism.
      Shabi wrote:
      Galloway is not alone in holding such sentiments – but as a tactic in support of Palestinians, it’s a dead end.
      And now take away your very unfunny BS about witchhunt – the Electronic Intifada and similar shitholes are hungry for your kind of bigots…

      • No, the basis of her criticism is actually that Galloway and his ilk focus on people rather than on the state and state institutions.

        What gets missed, often, is how off-putting all the Israel hate in such circles can be; how focused on the people – Jewish people, Israeli people, sometimes interchangeably – not the state. Those who raise doubts or ask questions about the level of animosity tend to be shut down with the rebuttal that the occupation is far worse – the atrocity ace card. This is no way to build a movement that includes Jewish and Israeli advocates of equal rights for all.

        I know you will have to be able to read in order to understand this, perhaps in a few years we can return to the topic when you have learned to read.

        Thanks for your contirbution Corporal!

        • Interesting take on my literacy from an asshole who can’t even relate to the quote in my post.
          Were you and Shabi a bit less bigot and ignorant then maybe you would know that the owerhelming majority of the Israelis are on the boycott-list of Galloway and Shabi due to their opinions regarding the conflict with the Palestinians. There are som very rare exception like Pappe (an ex-israeli) or Shlomo Sand an obvious crook and pseudo scholar but they are the exception and not the rule.
          Anyway I’m perfectly satisfied with your sense of humor regarding calling this website CifWitch(hunt) and calling me a corporal – a perfect match to your workplace at the uni cafeteria. Have you heard any new bizarre snobbish composition of words from some undergraduates?

          • So are you saying you are not a corporal?

            I didn’t realise that there was an official boycott list of people to boycott. Could you tell me where it is, then?

            • Sanity calling me a corporal supposed to be some kind of abuse? You know (how could you now by the way?) corporals are soldiers mostly on the field carrying all of the burdens of a war, the blood, the mud, the rain, the cold or the sweltering heat, the boring guard duty etc.
              They are not armchair warriors like your brand of shit who are eager to command the fight of others from behind their secure keyboards and are ready to fight the Jews to the last drop of blood… of the Palestinians naturally.

            • I didn’t realise that there was an official boycott list of people to boycott. Could you tell me where it is, then?
              Here you are dear penis obsessed intellectual:
              …And it is this – no purchase of Israeli goods or services, no normal contacts with individuals or organisations in Israel who support the existence of the racist Apartheid creed of Zionism.
              In short he wants to boycott about 99.99% of the Israeli Jews who are Zionists and want their own state. That he calls this apartheid and racist is only tells everything about himself, you and your kind of assorted Israel/Jew-haters
              And an other pearl of your obedient ass-kisser of every living or dead murderous Arab dictators:
              …Apartheid Israel is a cancer at the heart of the middle-east. Only it’s replacement by a bi-national democratic state from the Jordan River to the sea will cure this.
              You must be proud of your comrade Sanity but please don’t abuse your penis again reading his war-cry…

              • Dear Corporal, this is not a list. Furthermore, George Galloway, even though he might like to, does not own the boycott movement. In fact, the boycott movement came out and said specifically that it’s not a boycott of individuals. Had you bothered to read Shabi, you’d know that. Why is it always so easy to dismantle the ideas of right wing fascist bigots like you?

                • List? You are much dumber what I thought before. You asked a question, I answeerd it fully so you can’t say anything but I must be a fascist. Congrats you achieved the intellectual level of a five years old.
                  Am I a fascist? Am I a fan of Muslim mass murderers like you? Am I a supporter of the anti-Semite genocidal Hezbollah, Hamas and Fatah movements like you?
                  BTW you couldn’t dismantle a house of cards without reading the user manual before attempting it.

                • I wrote: Am I a fan of Muslim mass murderers like you?
                  Your answer:I am a Muslim mass murderer am I?
                  The high time to take some reading and understanding simple texts course for you, your employers may dicover your illiteracy, your penis obsession and your “kuss emmekh” style Arabic knowledge and debating style any day…

    • What a fantastic idea. Except, the article was closed for discussion on the 22nd Feb. The same day as it was posted. Do you always check your facts so studiously?

      • If you had studied your facts, you’d know that Mr Adam Levick, the dear leader, is banned from commenting on the Guardian’s website. The shocking thing was that he hasn’t yet mentioned that the Guardian has published comment condemning Galloway’s decision. But of course, if you were smart enough to realise all that, you wouldn’t be a racist stooge troll, so it’s a little much to hope for, I guess.

            • Yes, everybody here can see the type of Jew-obsessed troll you are, with your hypocritical mask of hysterical “anti-racism”. Get lost, troll.

        • If you already knew that then what was the point of your original post? It strikes me as extremely childish of you, and your equally infantile attempt to label me as racist without anything to back it up just reinforces my opinion.

  14. “I know you will have to be able to read in order to understand this”

    Funny, coming from someone who writes “contirbution”….

      • Well, I can only hope that Allah is Merciful, and doesn’t destroy us for the deeds (or in this case words) of the fools among us. As Moses said in the Koran (Sura 7, verse 155):

        ا تهلكنا بما فعل السفهاء منا؟

        Wouldst Thou destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us?
