Galloway Hits Back With Dave Killing Rant

Dear Prime Minister, 

I’m sure on reflection you will realise that your answer to me today was beneath you and unbecoming for a British Prime Minister. I will deal with the complete absence of a substantive reply in a moment. But let me deal first with the vulgar abuse. 

I do not support any Arab dictatorship, unlike you. It is you who is selling weapons to the dictatorship in Saudi Arabia and providing military training there. It is you who is supporting the Bahraini dictatorship. It is you who supported the Mubarak dictatorship until its last hours. Ditto the late dictatorship in Tunisia, Yemen etc. It is you who has the warmest possible relations with the dictatorships in the Gulf. I could go on, believe me. I, on the other hand, have spoken, written and broadcast against all Arab dictatorships. Perhaps your staff, in preparing your reply, will provide you with the evidence of this. I also read Frankenstein until the end. 

I told one of your predecessors, Lady Thatcher, on the eve of the triumph of those whom your party routinely described as ‘Afghan freedom fighters’ that she “had opened the gates to the barbarians…. And that a long dark night would now descend upon the people of Afghanistan”. I warned repeatedly against the folly of the creation of the Arab-Afghan force which became Al Qaida. Immediately after 9/11 I said in the House that “I despise Osama Bin Laden, the medieval obscurantist savage. The difference is that I have always despised him. I despised him when you (pointing at the Tory benches) were giving him guns and money”. 

I find it genuinely inexplicable that you are doing it all over again. This is a tragedy which begins to look farcical when one considers the issue which I raised today with you. We are now killing Al Qaida in Mali and helping Al Qaida kill in Syria – killing Christians, killing Shiites, killing Kurds, killing Druze, killing Sunnis who won’t join their jihad, and soon, trust me, they will be killing each other. 

There may be “key differences” between Al Qaida in Mali and their counterparts in Syria. I asked you to explain these to the House today. You refused. But it is a question which will not go away before a puff of vulgar abuse. 

I look forward to your reply. I am seeking to publish this letter. 

Yours sincerely, 

George Galloway MP

He didn’t take Dave’s smackdown well then

      I can’t stand Galloway – he is a first class cnut – but in this, he does have some extremely valid points. What he doesn’t have any responsibility for, however, is working out foreign policy in the absence of dealing in some way with people who are not very nice – if I may paraphrase Yeas Minister – If we only deal with “nice” people, Hague would be even more lonely – he could hold meetings in a ‘Phone box!

            Possible explanation for Mr Galloway:

            The jihadists in Syria are Arabs. The Foreign Office likes Arabs. FO staff have all read The Seven Pillars of Wisdom and curl their toes up with excitement at the bits where Lawrence is beaten and b*ggered.

            The jihadists in Mali are not Arabs but Touaregs. The Foreign Office doesn’t like them particularly.

      It is amazing that, whoever is Prime Minister, the Speaker doesn’t demand a straight answer. Otherwise what is the point of question time?

      Galloway may be a complete cnut but I can’t help but agree with him over Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan and Iraq.

      We are creating, not shutting down, a worldwide Jihad.

      I am haunted by the spectre of those men, women and children in Syria being killed NOW for being Christian, Druze, Kurd or some other Muslim sect.

      The British Government is funding it !

          True. He is a weird one, but even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and when he gets it right, he does so spectacularly. At least the Stalinist Jock actually cares about something, unlike Dave who has no principals, no morals, and just thinks he can bully those in a lower year than himself. I can’t think of a Tory PM in the last century or so I have less respect for. Not even Major or Heath. He’s just an abusive bully with no talent to justify his arrogance.

          In particular, for pointing out the “key differences” issue over Al Qaida in Mali and Al Qaida in Syria, for which Cameron has no answer whatsoever, and so predictably resorted to insults and put-downs.

          I mean, what is the difference between the two. Does anyone have a logical answer?

Given the pressing need to deflect attention away from what is really happening in Syria, is it any wonder the PM was forced into using insults?

    Galloway is right on this one. No amount of tribal loyalty makes a Tory cower from the truth – when your own side is constantly shitting the bed where Arabs & Islam is concerned you have to speak up.

    The realpolitik issue here is that there is a choice between Muslim Brotherhood on the one hand and brutal dictatorship on the other in this region of the world. Neither of these is appealing. When there is one, the other always seems more attractive, until that alternative wins.

    Can you explain British Foreign Policy cos Willy and Dave haven't a clue ... says:

    Galloway was just on BBC Daily Politics and ignoring his posssibly dubious support for various regimes he does HAVE a point.

    In Afghanistan we supported the “Mujhadeen” against the Soviets;supplied them with technical know how,cash and weapons only to find 20 odd years later that they have transmogrified into the Taleban.

    We carried out a similar exercise more recently in Libya…supporting who the fuck knew who against Gaddafi and are now having to flee Benghazi.

    The “Arab Spring” was a myth..in the various countries involved from Eygypt to Libya we have just replaced one nasty regime with another one and in the main ones that are no friends of the West

      Afghan Watch says:

      The Taliban were created by Pak!stan SIS and C!A.

      They were meant to be a stable and easy to control government post Soviet withdrawal, to keep the Mujahideen under control.

      Total miscalculation as history has shown.

      No one likes to speak of where the majority of Mujahideen fighters originally came from either. Largely Saud!, and the Saud! government encouraged and paid for them to go to Afghanistan.

      They make very good warriors, until you double cross them. Hence AQ, which itself has more western involvement than many wish to accept. (Funding from Brune!, Qatar, Saud! – :-) : Super injunctions against Parliament tried to cover up one of those sources…)

    Gallow's Watch says:

    Galloway asked a very good question.

    Dave’s answer was very poor. Actually diabolical when realized that he trivialized an issue which has cost a lot of people on both sides their lives. Not quite up their with Ward’s effort but not far off.

    Ge0rges response will help him relieve some tension, but he has missed the mark somewhat. The funding of dictators out in M/E was perpetuated and augmented very much under Labour, and the current attack against Sh!!tes which is ongoing was initiated under Bla!r. (Still ongoing under Obama)

    He has missed a very good opportunity here to expose from a good platform some real issues, which would have worked well for his party, but has descended to the same populist jingo that Dave resorted to and has mis-informed further on what are serious issues.

    In particular: Afghanistan.

    The public should be reminded that NATO Article 5 was invoked as reason to go into that country post 9/11 and the mission purpose was to stop AQ from forming training camps and remove the Taliban government which supported this.

    Nowhere was it mandated to rebuild the country, and if you look at the place now, the mission (which has stretched to 10 Years now !) has been a failure.

    The Persian Spring says:

    Daily Politics – Andrew Neil – “You’re Iranian friends” (Iranian regime). I note that Galloway didn’t challenge Andrew Neil on this. The reference was obviously to do with his presenting job on Press TV. He’s working for Press TV which is run and funded by the cruel oppressive Iranian regime which subjects it’s opponents and population to torture, rape, and death. He’s quite right to expose western hypocrisy but he needs to look closer to home and watch the company he keeps.
    Why didn’t Andrew Neil ask a ‘killer’ question. What’s your view about the intimidation of the relatives of BBC Persian staff by the Iranian regime ? I thought Galloway was an intelligent guy, but if he can’t see his own naked hypocrisy then I was wrong.

        Really?

        1984: West German intelligence sources claim that Iran’s production of a bomb “is entering its final stages.” US Senator Alan Cranston claims Iran is seven years away from making a weapon.

        1992: Israeli parliamentarian Benjamin Netanyahu tells his colleagues that Iran is 3 to 5 years from being able to produce a nuclear weapon.

        1995: The New York Times reports that US and Israeli officials fear “Iran is much closer to producing nuclear weapons than previously thought” – less than five years away. Netanyahu claims the time frame is three to five years.

        1996: Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres claims Iran will have nuclear weapons in four years.

        1998: Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld claims Iran could build an ICBM capable of reaching the US within five years.

        1999: An Israeli military official claims that Iran will have a nuclear weapon within five years.

        2001: The Israeli Minister of Defence claims that Iran will be ready to launch a nuclear weapon in less than four years.

        2002: The CIA warns that the danger of nuclear weapons from Iran is higher than during the Cold War, because its missile capability has grown more quickly than expected since 2000 – putting it on par with North Korea.

        2003: A high-ranking Israeli military officer tells the Knesset that Iran will have the bomb by 2005 — 17 months away.

        2006: A State Department official claims that Iran may be capable of building a nuclear weapon in 16 days.

        2008: An Israeli general tells the Cabinet that Iran is “half-way” to enriching enough uranium to build a nuclear weapon and will have a working weapon no later than the end of 2010.

        2009: Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak estimates that Iran is 6-18 months away from building an operative nuclear weapon.

        2010: Israeli decision-makers believe that Iran is at most 1-3 years away from being able to assemble a nuclear weapon.

        2011: IAEA report indicates that Iran could build a nuclear weapon within months.

        2013: Israeli intelligence officials claim that Iran could have the bomb by 2015 or 2016.

        And recently, Syria was said to have WMD – that it could “fired us with two hours”.

      I have spent 63 years of my life travelling the world and have indeed lived and worked in a number of muslim countries – Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudiland, UAE, Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, and I can assure you that there is a huge difference between say Saudiland and Malaysia. The vast majority of muzzies worldwide are just ordinary folk who just want to get on quietly with their lives and mind their own business – just like ordinary folk everywhere else – and are simply not interested in fomenting strife and revolution.

      It is the brainwashed religious nutjobs in their midst, with their passion for Sharia and some ancient desert manuscripts, that create all the problems. Vast amounts of government money in all these countries is spent (wasted?) on building more and more highly decorated and expensive mosques. It is from these buildings that many problems emanate.

      The solution is obvious….

    From Levin’s site:

    Bank records show that, in 2000, $150,000 in !raqi oil sales revenues were transferred from Mr. Zureikat to Mr. Galloway’s wife, Dr. Amina Abu-Zayyad; and, from 2000 to 2003, another $446,000 in !raqi oil sales revenues were transferred from Mr. Zureikat to the Miriam’s Appeal, the British charity and political campaign associated with Mr. Galloway. The new evidence also shows that, in connection with these oil sales, Mr. Zureikat paid illegal surcharges to the Hussein regime totaling over $1.6 million.

    There are still many more questions to be answered on that issue.

    Galloway has been confidently predicting an Israeli attack on Iran at regular intervals over the past five years even providing precise dates on occaision. One day he may well be justified and crow about being right yet again or it might not happen and his prognostications forgotten. He is always playing this game of forecasting dire consequences and bigging up his wise analysis when events coincide. It’s nothing to do with wisdom, it’s happenstance. He’s a sad self absorbed, opportunistic megalomaniac with a strange habit of curious pronunciation now: eg Material becomes Materiell. His Trot assistant probably dreamed up this considered but predictable defence as Galloway is clearly deflated by Cameron’s response.

Or perhaps the poorly educated Brits are becoming as mindless and intellectually meager as too many Yanks, citing the right left paradigm inappropriately, and habitually confounding fascism with socialism and Marxism with capitalism?

Then again, with the amount of child abuse/sexual and moral perversity required to be a (psychopathic) authority figure, belong to the establishment, BBC, parliament, education, social services, the judiciary, the ‘un’healthservice …. et-cetera, you might get an invite to his bed chamber, but make any plans, or expect to catch the next bus home, unless its in a bodybag, or you have an affinity for deep waters.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
