It’s amazing what some people will do to manipulate the electorate into voting for them – and for once I’m not talking about the three main parties…
Last week, George Galloway persuaded the people of Bradford to vote him into a safe Labour seat with a 10,000 majority by grabbing the massed votes of the muslim population. In his acceptance speech he referred to the “Bradford spring” and proclaimed an uprising. What poppycock!
Galloway claims to be the friend of the Arabs – so what the hell was he doing in the above picture sucking up to Saddam Hussein? Has he forgotten that Saddam was on the wrong side of the equation?
What was he doing sucking up to Gaddafi? The same Gaddafi to whom he said : “Sir I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability, and I want you to know that we are with you, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds [until victory, until Jerusalem].” Where is Gaddafi now?
So “the most sensational result in British by-election history, bar none” is based upon the simple Galloway philosophy of divide and conquer; my enemy’s enemy is my friend. In Galloway’s case, of course, his enemy is his own government thus inspiring the anti-establishment vote that puts him back into Parliament and his nose back into the Westminster trough.
Galloway is not a particularly religious man, and yet he manouevres through the corridors of power by supporting extreme Islamists and, in their turn, female subjugation, the execution of homosexuals and the extermination of the Jewish race.
Take Afghanistan for example. Galloway opposed the intervention, regardless of the fact that four fifths of civilian deaths were caused by the Taliban. According to him this is not their fault but the wicked occupying NATO powers. Afghanistan, where girls have acid thrown in their faces by insurgents just for attending school; where children are killed when accused of spying; where the weapon of choice is a roadside boobytrap. They have a right to carry on as they like without foreign occupation he claims.
Galloway has achieved his ‘historic victory’ not by being a friend of Islam, but by whipping up racist hatred against the establishment with his outspoken tirades on Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan. His claims are shallow and motivated by self-interested.
The Arabs’ friend? I think not. Just take another look at that picture…
