    Absolutely shameful and barefaced racism. Criticising a country is fair. Refusing to debate with someone who happens to be a citizen of that country is an absolute disgrace.

    Storm out my hairy arse. He might have opinions you dislike, and I can’t say I follow what he says that much, but he articulated his opinion without hysteria or emotion and left. More politicians should stand by their convictions and not move about like a weather vane.

    Mind you, when you heard the gasps I thought it was a group of 11 year old girls.

    Its odd isn’t it. but Galloway started reacting funny when the bloke said “We”, as if he was talking on behalf of “the country in question”.

    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.

    This used to be a Country where Freedom Of Speech mattered and whatever Galloway says he should not be showered with abuse just because a few disagree with his actions or what he says. These actions curtail Free Speech enormously and is one of the reason’s that we are losing it.
    As for some of the comments about Palestine, Galloway may be correct, most of the World are coming to the conclusion that what Israel is doing to the Palestinians is wrong and had it have been any other Country they would have had the might of the USA and Europe against them. 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.

    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!!!!”

    But then turncoat apostates like جورج Galloway are only interested in bandwagons – must be his LieBore training.

    Casual Observer says:

    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.

    There are many issues there which the state is very clearly making a real mess of. The real problems will not affect people in your generation so much, but for the younger generation in the UK in particular with women who are no longer forming families or having children much later in life, the implications for +20-40 years from now are awful.

    Yes. Noticed that. But some consolidation was done at the top and it may have just fallen on the cutting room floor.

    You have kindly given me the opportunity to repeat the operative part and slightly tighten it: He also failed to differentiate between a person and a nationality. This is becoming the hallmark of fundamentalist Islаmіc intolerance.

    If it his appeal to those who dislike Israel that make him a cult, then yes he is a massive cult. Was walking out of a debate cultish? Yes. Was invite George to a debate he would have to walk out of based on his own culty beliefs a little cultish too? Oh yes. What a lot of cults.

    more likely that Galloway knew exactly what the debate arrangements were and staged everything to gain publicity and curry favour amongst the moslem morons who run his constituency. No tantrum, because his bad-mannered hypocrisy was worked out from start to finish.

  88. 88
    Henry Brubaker says:

    Lol, love your mixed up thinking on this.

    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.

    You must be a left winger Truth. This is the left wing version of how ‘free speech’ operates.

    The posturing was not so much in his first remark I don’t debate with Isrаelis. It was his subsequent grandstanding at the doorway which was meant for broadcasting to his flock. Despicable in my view but I must read what CO has added below which just caught my eye.

    TBH I’d love to see him packed off on a plane to Sweden to answer his accusers. ANd if somehow he later finds himself in an American Supermax as Bubbas biatch then I wont weep for him.

    But whilst he cowers in the embassay there is little the government can do. Even one as useless, spinless and wishy washy as Camerons coalition of the mediocre.

    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.

  105. 105
    Casual Observer says:

    The language which the first presenter was using in his speech gave the game away.

    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.

    Hoping that Eyl0n’s full address is made available as it would be good to get an insight into what !srael’s younger generation of politicians think about Palest!ne.

  106. 106

    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.

    George Galloway – a lesson from history for you that needs repeating elsewhere.

    Hmmm, so he “doesn’t recognise” a state that has existed legally since 1948, is a member of the UN (and a democratic one at that) and existed as a sovereign state centuries ago…yet he presses for the recognition of a “state” that has never existed at any point in history (never had a currency, never had a capital city, never had passport-holding citizens, let alone a distinct identity) and prior to 1967 wasn’t even considered as “part of the solution”, all the while cosying up to dictators all over the Middke East and turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the genocide they might commit on their own people…yet calls his party “Respect”…? Go figure…

    !srael is a nation state. !srael is resisting the recognition of another state: Palest!ne.

    Gall0way’s politics are sided more with Palest!ne than either the UK or !srael.

    He is using eye for an eye rhetoric here, not nice, but that is what it is.

    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’.

    Personally, I do not agree at all with Gall0way’s politics.

    Casual Observer says:

    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.

    Did you ever get Rumsfeld on the stand giving testimony on oath – No – thought not – rather convenient and timely that.

    Plenty of mos(t) sad professional trolls on here today [far too many – but they’re noted] preaching their inverted duplicitous bile.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Slaves – The slave trade – now just remind me who made the most money out of the slave trading and who owned most of the ships that ‘transported’ the slaves around the world – I am of course talking of pre-1939 … come on … there are those who do not ‘want’ the majority of people on the planet to see or recognise any history before 1939 … I wonder why?

    Racism in its most naked sense

    You are correct it is racism in its most naked form. George was quite right not to debate with this jumped-up juvenile excuse for Israel. It is Israel that is racist towards the Arab states.

    He’s a brilliant debater but cannot tolerate debate with a racist and was right to walk away.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
