'Viva Palestina' UK Aid Convoy

Further to my earlier post on MP George Galloway's adventures in Egypt, I researched the convoy in a little more detail.

Apparently, three suspected terrorists who had been under surveillance here in Britain were intercepted by the police and MI5 trying to sneak out of the country whilst posing as convoy members.

This convoy was organised by a group called 'Viva Palestina'. It seems to be a charitable organisation run entirely on member donations.

It is full of trite, saccharin, Student Union nonsense such as 'we're all Palestinians now'.

However, the vast majority of its supporters seem to be Muslims and radical leftists. This is pretty much summed up by the fact that their poster boy is to be maverick MP George Galloway.

His 'Respect' party, for which he sits as the MP for the predominantly Muslim Bethnal Green & Bow constituency, makes New Labour look like the PVV. There is literally nothing this man will not say or do to persuade the Muslims he represents to vote him back in next time.

Here is extraordinary footage of the convoy heading through Morocco and into Algeria back in February; I can only assume that the British ambulances you can see have been decommissioned and bought by the organisation.

Well, according to the website, the convoy has now arrived in Gaza, and George Galloway is giving a speech.

Here is the update from their site:

"And they entered side by side like heroes, some on foot some in their vehicles, tears, smiles, hugs, flowers. It was historic, it was legendary. Gaza we are here. We have fulfilled the promise - Viva Palestina! The lifeline from the people of Britain to you, the people of Gaza, has arrived."

Don't lay it on too thick. The convoy has £1 million in aid for Gaza, and the online campaign raised a further £75,000.

The US Government recently pledged £630 million, the UK Government £30 million.

Yet Galloway and Hamas are still scrabbling around for more with guilt trips about 'infrastructure'.

Just how sophisticated do those damn rocket launchers have to be to hit a primary school in Sderot or Ashkelon?

A pox upon these bastards because they tacitly support the terrorism from palestine. After all how the heck are the palis supposed to learn from their behavior when the whole world comes running to rebuild all their crap when Israel gets tired of sucking up rocket after rocket and sends a few back.

In a twisted sort of way, the silver lining is that if these leftards ever get their dream of tearing down western civilization and submitting to their new muslim masters, there won't be any money left over to steal from the citizens to give to their terrorist heroes.

That website was just nauseating.

You can see it quite clearly in places - it's nothing to do with the 'children' and everything to do wth bringing down Israel and spreading Islam and pro-Arab propaganda.
