As the conflict between the IDF and Hamas escalates, both in real life and in a salvo of Twitter posts, politicians George Galloway and Roseanne Barr have begun some trans-Atlantic bonding.

Galloway, who founded the left-wing Respect Party after being driven out of the Labour Party, and Barr, who ran for U.S. president on behalf of the Peace and Freedom Party, exchanged their views today, perhaps glad to be taken seriously. Barr, you see, can translate Galloway’s shorthand.

Just stop. You had her at “U.S. Empire.” Barr isn’t done yet, though.

    Good Grief. If it wasn’t for the Catholic church / crusades they’d both be speaking Arabic right now & living in a 3rd world type of sh*thole. Why don’t these people ever get it? All they have to do is read the Quran & Hadiths. The left & reality = diametrically opposed

      These two honestly think that they will be exempt from any and all Muslim laws because they were Progressive enough to support Islam. Part of me, would love to see the look of shock on their faces when they realize no one is exempt from Sharia Law… but the other part of me knows I’ll be busy burning a burqua and a koran if that day ever arrives.

      Having Barr under a burqa would be a relief to our eyes and other senses.

      They must be fine with the concept of the unlcean hand.

    Why don’t they go join the Arabs and fight the good fight? Just a note, the other side does fire back.

    So let me get this straight they launch rockets into Israel daily. They blow up an Israeli jeep and Israel is suppose to just take it? Once Israel has had enough and strike back they are the bad guy? Really who started the yam-kipper war? Didn’t the muslims get their asses kicked? Guess what you start wars and lose then you lose land also. Stupid liberals!

      Well, this IS news! I didn’t even know that yams and kippers weren’t on speaking terms.

  • Danny Meeker

    ….because Roseanne Barr is the pillar of historical education and facts. /puke

    “Vote for me in Israel”? What office is she running for over there? If it’s the position of Hamas Human Shield, then I’m willing to engage in a little voter fraud to ensure that she wins.

    How nice that Galloway wants the warring factions in Syria to stop fighting each other, and instead unite to fight Jooooos.

    So I take it they never heard about the Battle of Tours, the destruction of the Eastern Roman Empire, and the conquest of the Iberian Peninsula.

    Following a two-week lull in violence, Israeli soldiers invade Gaza. In the resulting exchange of gunfire with Palestinian fighters, a 12-year-old boy is killed by an Israeli bullet while he plays soccer.

    Shortly afterwards, Palestinian fighters blow up a tunnel along the Gaza-Israel frontier, injuring one Israeli soldier.


    An anti-tank missile fired by Palestinian fighters wounds four Israeli soldiers driving in a jeep along the Israel-Gaza boundary.

    An Israeli artillery shell lands in a soccer field in Gaza killing two children, aged 16 and 17. Later, an Israeli tank fires a shell at a tent where mourners are gathered for a funeral, killing two more civilians, and wounding more than two dozen others.


    The Israeli government and the Israeli Army goes on a rampage and starts murdering everyone in sight.
