George Galloway Stoned in Egypt

Hat tip: Winds of Jihad.

Maverick MP and Islamist sympathiser George Galloway, currently leading a £1 million, 110 vehicle 'aid' convoy to Gaza, has come under attack near Egypt's border with the territory.

Apparently stones were thrown, rude words and anti-Hamas slogans were sprayed on some of the vehicles as the convoy rested overnight in Al-Harish, a small town 28 miles from the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza.

A few people were lightly hurt. George was not among them.

Yvonne Ridley, the convoy organiser, was up in arms, calling the attack a 'disgrace'. She should know.

George apparently expected hostility, because he did go on a bit of a rant earlier this year about the Egyptian government - and I simply can't resist reproducing it here in full:

"There are many governments responsible for this great crime in Palestine, but the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak is jointly responsible for the murder of every Palestinian who has died in these last two years," he said.

When he [Mubarak] was embracing Livni [the Israeli Foreign Minister] as the bombs were falling, when he locked the border at Rafah, he became an international criminal and an outlaw of the Arab world.

So I call, in conclusion, on the great people of Egypt, on the heroic armed forces of Egypt, and the heroic army of Egypt of 1973, to rise up and sweep away this tyrant Mubarak.

To rise up, to rise up, and to demolish the border at Rafah and let the people go free."

Perhaps he was stoned in an altogether different sense when he felt moved to pour forth this veritable torrent of nonsense?

The Egyptian army 'heroic'? Egypt a dictatorship, but 'Palestine' not?

Still, this man has to be one the most disingenuous who ever lived. I'd say he just got a taste of what ordinary Arabs feel about the loons and psychopaths he promotes and excuses in a day's work.

What business does an MP have wandering the Middle East looking foolish? Is there not enough to do in England and the UK to keep them occupied?

It's a legitimate question.

But this fellow is a snake in the grass - always had a pro-Arab agenda.

He was sucking up to Saddam long before it was fashionable.

Being an agnostic person from a Catholic family, I don't have any particular bias here.

From what I've researched, there are terrible inhuman things (such as women and children being slaughtered without a second thought) happening in Palestine at the hands of Israel. I'll admit Israel has had to take a lot of shit in the past, but from the story history seems to tell, the land of Israel was formerly occupied by Muslims, and they were forced out when some Jews with influence managed to persuade some western governments to let them "have" that land. The people who called that land home were forcefully and violently evicted to make way for the Jews.

The most successful politicans in our western world don't get so successful because they stand up for what they believe in and because they have great principles. They become so successful because they only care about their political career - they'd say anything the people want to hear.

George Galloway isn't like this and isn't a very mainstream/ successful politician. He actually cares about the world and that is why he will never be successful as a politician.
