Galloway Gloats

Given how litigous Gorgeous George is it seems best to quote from Workers Liberty (which is, apparently, “for international working class solidarity and socialism”).

In January 1994 Galloway, his voice vibrating with deep feeling, his body language and manner strongly suggestive of awe and respect, stood before Saddam Hussein, in a Baghdad …

“

“Sir,” said Galloway, standing within smelling distance of the mass murderer, “we salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability.” Galloway was one of a delegation of European MPs who took it on themselves to present Saddam Hussein with a pennant from Palestinian youth in the Israeli-occupied territory, from which they had just come. Having praised “Sir’s” courage, strength and indefatigability, Galloway went on to inform Saddam Hussein that the people he had visited in Palestine were naming their children after him. And not only were the Palestinians with him. Galloway ended his speech with the words: “We are with you,” and then some words in Arabic, which the BBC translated as “Until victory! Until Jerusalem!” This was not quite three years after Saddam Hussein had rocketed bombs on Israel during the Gulf War, and used poison gas against Iraqs Kurdish people.
