George Galloway On Those “Dignified” Terrorists In Iraq By Betsy Newmark
Can George Galloway get any more vile? Is there any dictatorship or sponsor of terrorism that he won’t cuddle up to? Now, he’s praising Syria.
“In a speech that will incense Syrian democracy campaigners, the former Glasgow MP urged Syrians to take pride in the Baathist authoritarian, who inherited rule from his father, Hafez Assad.
An anticipated UN report into the assassination of Rafiq Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, would “frame” Syria, Mr Galloway told an audience at the University of Damascus in a highly charged lecture.
“All dignified people in the world, whether Arabs or Muslims or others with dignity, are very proud of the speech made by president Bashar al-Assad a few days ago here in Damascus,” he said.
“For me he is the last Arab ruler, and Syria is the last Arab country. It is the fortress of the remaining dignity of the Arabs, and that’s why I’m proud to be here.”
The Respect MP, who formerly sat for Labour in Glasgow, has some track record for praising isolated leaders: in 1994 he travelled to Baghdad and “saluted” Saddam Hussein’s courage.
Not only does he suck up to Damascus, but he’s also encouraging the terrorism in Iraq.
In his latest speech, broadcast on al-Jazeera, Mr Galloway said Iraqi resistors were defeating US soldiers on their soil.
“No American soldier who leaves his barracks can be sure that he will come back alive,” he said, to applause.
US forces could not control a single street in Iraq, which was why they would not dare invade Syria, he said.
“America is losing the war in Iraq and she cannot dream of starting a new war in Syria,” he said.
“If they dared to invade Syria, every dignified person in the country would fight them exactly as the people of Iraq are fighting them now.”
Syrians would rise up and fight Americans in the same way that the British had resisted Nazi occupiers, he said.
Got that? This worm is proud of the adherents of Zarqawi in Iraq. He doesn’t seem to even recognize the innocent Iraqis who are suffering the bulk of the killing. I guess that he would regard them as collaborators. This man is so vile; it’s hard to believe that he comes out of free country, but alas, it is so.
