WATCH: Galloway Storms Out of Debate With Israeli

Third year Oxford PPE student and Israeli citizen Eylon Aslan-Levy saw Galloway’s true colours last night. He stormed out of the debate at Christ Church College on the grounds that his opponent was an Israeli. “Respect…”

        I was going to try to compare it to the difference between “scottish”, “extreme scottish nationalist” and “a spaddy friend of Salmond”. But don’t have the spare time to expand that.

          Errr…in the end wasn’t Braveheart shafted because his fellow Scots did a deal behind his back so perhaps the Scots might apologize to the Scots ….except that before taht time there wasn’t a real coherent Concepcion of Scotland as one unified nation rather than a collection of warring clans stealing each others sheep at almost every opportunity

        Even better. If idiot George doesn’t recognise Israel as a State, then he cannot recognise the young man as being an Israeli so, therefore, by his own twisted logic, George knows that the young man is NOT an Israeli so he cannot walk out of the debate on the basis that his opponent IS an Israeli – but he did.

        Not very bright, is he? I wonder how much ‘respect’ he earned from his audience?

Clever exploitation of a niche clientele on his part – but that doesn’t make him, or you, a principled defender of human rights or human values.

      From the times of the medieval churchmen, the universities have regarded all people as equal. It is something that has transcended nationality, racial and, even in modern times, religious divides itself.

      Even in WWII there was a tacit agreement that the Germans would not bomb Oxford or Cambridge and that the Allies would not bomb Heidelberg or Göttingen. Although popularly disputed, the evidence points towards this having been the case.

      To the point here, for Galloway to walk out was completely within his rights, but to cite Israel as the reason in so doing was clearly out of order IMHO.

        Saladin, the reluctant resistance leader during the Crusades, treated the defeated European Crusader army with respect and mercy, to the point of granting amnesty and safe passage. He is rightly remembered as a great leader.

        An Israeli who tries to suggest that cutting the gordian knot would be a good thing is met with the equivalent of a petulant childish tantrum. All it needed was (the cherry on the cake) Georgy slamming the door shut as hard as possible and screaming as he flounced away down the hall “And I don’t fu.cking love you any more!!!!”

        He did state that he doesn’t debate with !sraeli’s and does not recognize the state. Nothing rac!st or out of order there, perhaps a bit frank.

        No fan of Gall0way, but he is a politician and made a very clear political statement, yet the audience reacted by branding him rac!st with ridicule. That was ill informed and wrong, somewhat Soviet in overtone.

        This was at ChristChurch Oxford, so one would expect a more enlightened reaction from the students. Standards have obviously slipped quite a bit, unless this was a complete setup.

        If he had asked the question first before attending the debate, letting them know he would not debate with !sraeli’s, that would confirm if this was a setup.

        Shouldn’t be too quick to prejudge him. Politics, and particularly politics involving the middle east, is very murky these days. The 3rd year PPE student is very likely in the !sraeli security services which for Gall0way would be good reason to bail.

          Will pick up one the first issue later where, whilst I understand what you are saying, I have a fundamental disagreement over the way in which Galloway handled the situation (see above). If we must not prejudge the man, neither must we do so to the students. There was a valid basis for their objections but racism was not one. Unfortunately, it has become the first word in our enormous lexicon that people turn to and is now almost just a meme.

          In your comment on the previous thread, I do not understand how you have used the term amoral which is a quality of negation. Could you please clarify and I can then give you some prime examples from my experience why it just cannot and does not work in the way you appear to argue.

            The audience can be prejudged from their reaction. They did not pick up on Gall0ways subtle point.

            !srael has a history of refusing to enter talks with Palest!ne on the basis that they do not recognize it as a state. Even since the UN has it has been sketchy.

            Gall0way gave an unexpected demonstration for this and was attacked as rac!st, which it is not. The audience can be prejudged, as they did not react (as many of the comments here also reflect) with a critical understanding of what had just happened.

            Instead they went on the attack, using ‘rac!st’ label, and immediately aligning with Eyl0ns position, the position of !srael, without any thought.

            Now, the audience here should have been a bit smarter.

            Stepping up a level, the above footage demonstrates either a setup, or a Pavlovian response in the audience. If you know how to manipulate that then you are in control of winning debates irrespective of whether you are right or wrong.

            —-
            On the amoral question: I used to indicate a complete absence of morality which is a feature of the modern Marxist society in which we live. I did not state immoral as that implies that the societal context has morality to counter. It is only moral if there is a moral reason as indicated with the abuse history aspect.

            Not expressed well overall, my position is that it is a moral responsibility to look after family members. The raft of excuses which exist to justify not doing so are false and immoral, much of modern society these days is essentially amoral.

          • Thank you. I had already made the point that racist was the wrong retort so do not take issue over that in itself.

            You had mentioned that the speaker may have been from the Israeli security services. If he was then he should have declared an interest, I would agree. But you are presuming this. It may not be so. I know plenty of Israelis who are not members of the security services who could give a similar paper. Of course, all of them will serve with the forces at some point but I feel sure you are not arguing from that standpoint.

            Finally with the proviso made above, even a member of the security services is also a citizen of the country and a human being.

            I shall leave my anecdotal experience for another time as I am pressed currently but thanks for your clarification, which is as I would have expected save for what I felt was an oddity in your phrasing.

          Small point of order here – Israel is a recognised country in the same way as Saudi Arabia, Australia, the USA, The “United” Kingdom, all of which enclosed and absorbed other sovereign nations and aboriginal peoples to become what they are today.

          To “Not” recognise them is a personal, dogmatic and deliberately provocative stance, meant to foster political support and sympathy from certain quarters.

          The UK, for 600 years, did not “recognise” the aboriginal (and I DO use that in it’s truest sense, and not pejoratively) Irish, and again when forming of the 6 counties, who than formed a paramilitary resistance army and political wing – but when the UK did “officially” do so, the process of peace started in earnest.

            Your point is making Gall0way’s perfectly.

            What he did was precisely what !srael does when refusing to negotiate with the state of Palest!ne. The students who shouted rac!st at him, even thought they are wrong, may want to think a bit more about what they said.

            Two wrongs do not make a right is the real takeaway. Still interesting that the audience jumped immediately to ‘rac!sm’.

          • And thus the ovens were built. O tempora! o mores!

            A fallacy is a fallacy, regardless of how loud you shout it – it is not the fault of the people to be clever, insular and good with money.

            History has taught them to be insular and not to rely on, but to fear the foreigner – the word pogrom has been used across the world to describe such events against the people of Moses for time immemorial.

            And no, I’m not one – I do have a pullover. And even after 2000 years, it’s just the same as the legendary John Holmes’s – not as big, just as dead.

            To invoke the “And thus the ovens were built” phrase – kills your argument straight away. People like you always try to kill any argument or civil discussion by reverting to that godforsaken subject.

For those who do not agree hten that is your right but research the subject and actually look at how the Palestinians are living (if you can call it that) and how badly (cruel) that Israel is treating them, history will eventually show how wrong Israel has been.

      You defend ‘free speech’ by denouncing those that exercise their free speech in showering the repellant Galloway with ‘abuse’ (much of it is criticism rather than simply abuse, are you not able to make that distinction?). Apparently they ‘should not’ do so. How is that an example of free speech? Actually these actions curtail free speech enormously and is one of the reasons you are losing it (recognise those words?)

      The people at that meeting or the public in general are not able to comment on Galloways thoughts on the debate given that he wanders off on the basis of the speakers nationality.

      You suggest that people should only comment on the Israel/palestinian issue once they done their’research’ and, it appears, come to the right conclusion.

      So here is how free speech works according to Truth here:

      Criticism = abuse.

      This ‘abuse’ should not be allowed as it apparently curtails free speech (not quite sure how TBH….. but thats lefty logic for you)

      People should only comment on a subject when the have done their research and come to the politically correct conclusion beforehand.

    Following whatever was said on al-Quds (Jerusalem):

    ‘We wanted peace, we got war…’, ‘us’ was also used according to the T!mes (who broke the story): This transforms expressing a position on the issue to a collective view, and an overtly political one given the nationality of the speaker.

    If this debate was advertised as including a party political from the state of !srael then Gall0way should not have questioned or left. If it was not advertised that way then he is out of order but not rac!st.

    His actions are about as political as you can get, and would expect from a politician.

    I really cannot stand Gall0way and do not support his politics. As a politician he can use those collective terms if expressing his parties views, but not his personal. The student using that language is apparently speaking on behalf of the state of !srael, which Gall0way does not recognize, hence Gall0way is quite right to leave.
