For a while I’ve had a theory that opponents of Israel will get behind anything anti-Israel, without giving the accuracy of it a moment’s thought.  So, on Sunday evening after I wrote this post about rocket attacks on Israel, I thought I’d put my theory to the test.

I tweeted George Galloway MP the link to my post, and asked: ‘RT for my #GazaUnderAttack post?’ Sure enough, he re-tweeted the my message a split second later.

George Galloway's retweet.

Interestingly, some of his anti-Israel Twitter followers also re-tweeted the message within seconds of him doing so. But eventually Galloway realized what he had done.

Galloway retracts.

It was just a bit of fun, really. But it was quite revealing: all that mattered to Galloway and several of his anti-Israel followers was that they believed, because of the #GazaUnderAttack hash-tag I had used, that they were circulating anti-Israel propaganda. They did not even feel they had to read what it was before they recommended it.

George Galloway: I salute your courage, your strength, and your gullibility!

  • Adam, well said

  • adam you’ve just repeated every line you jus typed as proof that you have no mind of your own and only have the capacity to repeat what you’ve been told by the mass media in regards to iran and possibly 99% of what you think you know about anything and everything you ignorant twat..go out and do some research on these matters instead of falling for the elites constant push to have u hating who they want and when they want and can turn them into heroes in the click of an eye through the mass hypnosis and magicians u call journalists and media stations..your a joke mate honestly you know our media is messed up when you have to read up on international events through aljazeera and can only get the real facts then.dont be an arse and stop being a REPEATER you mug!!

  • hehehehe…nice work! :-)

  • Kol hakavod! What a great sting!

  • so you tricked GG….whats the big deal.

  • GG is so disgustingly hateful of Israel and Zionism etc. Its truly abominable to hear him on the radio. I urge readers to listen to his radio show onWBAI (99.5 FM) ijust to hear him say how this was another Zionist plot to harm him. Thanks! ! Great laugh.)

  • All you’ve done is prove how deceitful the pro-Israel lobby can be, even if it’s only to make some childish point.

    Well done!

    • haha..well said!

    • …whilst the anti-Israel lobby doesn’t even read the content of an article, just retweets it because, by its title, they think it’s anti-Israel. Nothing childish or deceitful about that!

      I suppose “faceless” that you have no problem with GG’s openly declared support for the Iranian regime, a regime which persecutes minorities like the Bahai, Jews and Zoroastrians, hangs gay people in public, stones women, including children who are buried up to their waists, and supports terror globally. Oh, and is racing to build nukes to bring us all close to Armageddon. No it’s those deceitful pro-Israel bloggers you’ve got to watch out for!

      Grow up.

    An Israeli organization is helping wounded U.S. veterans move past their physical and psychological challenges by connecting them with injured Israeli soldiers who understand what they’ve been through. “What we discovered very early is that there’s no ‘professional, psychiatrist, social worker’ or anything like that [or] pills that can come even close to helping a soldier who fought in combat, who was wounded, who lost his friends. No one can help him like another person who’s been through exactly what he has,” Rabbi Chaim Levine, […]

The paper analyzed 40 studies involving 6,100 respondents in a time-travel thought experiment, the New York Post reported on Friday. While 60 percent of men said they would theoretically be willing to kill Hitler, only 55 percent of women said they would be comfortable doing the same. The paper was published in the Personality and […]
