Vicious British MP George Galloway refuses to debate Israeli: ‘I don’t recognize Israel’

That is exactly what he did. During a debate at Christ Church College, Oxford, Galloway stormed out of the room upon learning that his would-be opponent was an Israeli citizen. His explanation? “I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate with Israel.”

Galloway, a noxious anti-Semite and member of the British Respect Party (yes, Respect Party), confronted his critics on Twitter:

Pure poison.



George is getting tired of his critics:

Don’t like being accused of anti-Semitism, George? Then don’t be an anti-Semite.

      Exactly. It’s truly shocking but I have a feeling we’ll hear the same thing coming out of the mouths of the anti-semites in our own government in a few years. They will certainly become emboldened by this cretin’s hate speech.

        It goes on now. Obama, Chuck Hagel et al.

          Hagel is jewish. How can a jewish person hate jewish people? Makes no sense and I think you know it. Hagel brought relevant criticisms of AIPAC who bosts in their letterhead as having the most powerful lobby in DC. He simply stated the fact that they have too much control in dc and that in some cases Israeli and US interests diverge which is absolute truth. Looks like liberals aren’t the only ones concerned with pc culture.

          • Spatial Awareness

            Charles Timothy Hagel is NOT Jewish. Do some research.

          • 1SkepticalChick

            “How can a jewish person hate jewish people?” You say that like it’s impossible. I think his problem is with ISRAEL.

          • qualityrkc

            Stop being so concerned with being PC and be concerned with truth. AIPAC bosts in their letterhead about being the most powerful lobby in dc.

          • 1SkepticalChick

            Not a bit concerned with being pc. So shut up. A lot of people *boast*, like Obama boasts about being the most popular President EVAH. Which we all know is untrue. You asked “How can a jewish person hate jewish people?”. Like that could never be. Your reply is invalid and you are repeating yourself. Hagel is not Jewish, btw. Go play copy & paste on the wall of your mother’s basement.


          • John (it true me am)

            Blatant lie, Hagel is not Jewish he is episcopalian.

          • TocksNedlog

            Goebbels hearts you.

            Just because Hagel rhymes with bagel doesn’t make him Jewish.

          • Adela Wagner

            There are Loads of self loathing Jews out there. Look at all the Hollywood Jewish people who said NOTHING while Obama snubbed Bibi then went on the suggest Israel forgo any progress and go back to 1967 borders. Joy Behar et al are a DISGRACE to all Jewish people.

        He is against apartheid policies not jews.

        • Gary Rudick

          And HIlter didn’t want to kill Jews, Germany just really needed the money.

        • singingt

          You don’t get it. You don’t get it at all. There are. NO. POLICIES OF THIS SORT to be AGAINST, period end of sentence. It doesn’t exist. It’s lies upon lies, upon lies. Honestly. I have my own issues with the government of Israel because it’s a democracy…disagreeing, wanting changes- all perfectly normal reactions to a democratic government where people have differing opinions on solutions to problems. But unlike these ANTISEMITES I have much larger issues with the Syrians, Saudi Arabians, etc., multiple countries in Africa where the rape and mutilation of women is a fun and happy past time, and North Korea, where there are now 18 acceptable hairstyles for women (don’t worry! There are 10 for men!)

          When people actually start placing blame where it belongs and not placing EXPONENTIALLY larger blame on ONLY Israel, we will stop calling them antisemitic, as the ONLY plausible reason for such a lack of balance would be a dislike of Jews.

          • qualityrkc

            Look you shouldnt be so pc. It is alright to admit israel has apartheid policies. They dont even allow christians to preach in Israel. It is against the law! Stop being so PC.

    galloway is Sub-human Garbage! What absolute Trash! I guess the UK has it’s friggin’ Morons in office too. My condolences to the Good People of England.

        You had a mistake in your edits, too. See if you can find it.

    Not surprising coming from the UK, considering the last major pogrom post-WWII took place there.

    Didn’t Galloway get rich off of Sadam Hussein?

    What a creep.

    Galloway revealing his inner bigot, reinforcing his infamous outer bigot.
    The citizens of Englandistan seem unmoved;
    since Comrade Galloway did not make a Muslim slur.

    • Spatial Awareness

      …..and guess who the citizens of Englandistan will be calling when the Islamofascists start beheading them in Trafalgar Square.

  • qualityrkc

    Galloway has boycotted Israel. I think him walking out is a principled move. Before people cry racism I think they should review the term. Israel is a country not an ethnicity. If someone said they dont debate with Americans it couldn’t be considered racist in the same respect. As an example, I have a catholic English friend. What race is he/she? Impossible to know so racism clearly is not the correct word. Instead I would call him anti-Israeli.

    • Jim

      First, Israel is the only nation in the world that was founded by, and has a majority population of Jews. So it is tied into its citizens’ religion/ethnicity in a way that America and other countries are not. Second, the fact that Galloway would boycott the only Jewish nation in the world for its supposed “crimes” while not boycotting other nations that have committed much worse acts of oppression is a telltale sign that there is anti-semitism behind his actions.

    • TocksNedlog

      WHO is ‘crying racism’?

      • qualityrkc

        The people in the video. Did you even watch the video?

    • Robert Wilson

      actually the term Isreal is ethnic because it is founded in a single bloodline. A group of people with a common ancestor. To not recognize Isreal is to say that he is not against any specific policy but is against the existence of the Isreali government & all extensions of that existence, including apparently its people too

      • qualityrkc

        Israel is not founded on a single bloodline! That is the biggest lie I have ever heard! Most of them come from Europe who were converts therefore there is no such boodline. The original hebrews would be darker in skin color not pale white like most in Israel!

  • Ben Bollman

    Says he is against persecution, supports Hugo Chavez…..yeah

    the same George Galloway who said people must not be allowed to walk out on Ahmadinejad’s holocaust denying speeches:

  • Jefferson Tea Party

    What a POS coward.

  • 52mlt60

    This clown would have fit in perfectly in 1938 Britain, along with King Edward VIII and Neville “Peace in Our Time” Chamberlain…

    • BayouLimey

      Harsh putting Neville Chamberlain up there with Edward VIII and George Galloway. While publicly Chamberlain followed a policy of appeasement with Germany behind the scenes he was strengthening Britain’s military, the size of the R.A.F. was doubled while he was Prime Minister. Chamberlain postponed the war long enough to ensure that Britain was adequately rearmed to defend herself. Without Chamberlain’s policies in the 1930s Britain would have most likely lost the Battle of Britain.

  • John (it true me am)

    So much ignorance against Israel it is astounding.
    Wonderful country, wonderful people.
    Bottom line: If the Palestinians disarmed tomorrow there would be peace in the middle east. If the Israelis disarmed tomorrow there would be genocide.

  • TocksNedlog

    The voters in his district must be lovely people.

  • JeffDeWitt

    So I guess Galloway is upset about how we treated a Mr. A. Hitler?

  • Derek Penner

    George Galloway is an islamic fascist disguised as a man of peace, which is what they all want us to think. I bet he’s pissed off at the guilty verdict of those three islamonazis in Britain who were caught planning a terror attack.

  • Roto

    I guess Chuck Hagel just found his DEPSECDEF…. :-)

  • couchtripper

    What a pathetic headline and utterly biased article. Fuck Israel.

  • Stephanie Warren

    don’t worry, dear. Israel doesn’t recognize YOU either.

    • couchtripper

      do you speak for the criminal state? Are you an elected representative for the entire nation? the implication of your idiotic arrogance is that all Israelis are the same. But if they are all the same, then why are there so many that scum like you harass? Fuck Israel.

  • couchtripper

    Are you an Israeli or just a freak who defends the criminal state?
