GORGEOUS GEORGE GALLOWAY:”I Don’t Recognise Israel, & I Don’t Debate With Israelis”
Galloway wimps out of debate with Israeli student after being ‘misled’ over opponent’s nationality

In a statement late on Wednesday evening Galloway explained that “I refused this evening to debate with an Israeli, a supporter of the Apartheid state of Israel.

George Galloway, the Member of Parliament for Bradford West, has been accused by Oxford students of anti-semitism after storming out of a debate, refusing to share a platform with an Israeli.

But students would perhaps be better placed to show that Galloway was unable, rather than unwilling to have the debate, and was avoiding challenge on the issues due to a fear of being shown up, rather than any racial prejudices.

Mr Galloway “stormed out” of a debate at Christ Church on Wednesday evening, upon finding out that his opponent, Eylon Aslan-Levy, a third-year student at Brasenose, was an Israeli citizen.

Mr Galloway had spoken for ten minutes in favour of the motion ‘Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank’, before giving way to Aslan-Levy.


Billionaire media titan Rupert Murdoch took aim at the transnational Keystone XL pipeline, revealing his opposition to the controversial oil route, in a multi-Tweet rebuke of U.S. energy and economic policy that began on Friday.

The magnate, whose media empire News Corp. owns FOX News Channel and The Wall Street Journal, took an environmentalist view of the proposed pipeline, criticizing the “heavy, dirty oil” that it would carry from Canada’s oil sands to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries. The southern leg of the pipeline is under construction. The northern route, which needs federal approval to cross the Canadian-U.S. border, has been embroiled in a political war over its economic and environmental impact.

Murdoch has been a vocal proponent of developing U.S. oil and gas resources and a critic of renewable energy. In August, he called shale gas the “greatest news of the decade.”

“Gas means half carbon emissions and no need for ridiculous windmills,” he tweeted.

Perhaps The Best Hagelism Yet… by Gerald A. Honigman I know. I can hear it all now… “Just because he doesn’t like Israel doesn’t make Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, an anti-Semite.” While in theory that might sound nice, in reality, the sad fact is that if you believe that bull manure–and with the over three millennia-old Zionist holiday […]
