Punking Anti-Israel Activist MP George Galloway

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.

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency. In America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, historian Hugh Wilford shows this has always been the case. Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Kutsher’s Documentary an Amazing, and Tragic, Look at the Past (REVIEW)

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]

Even so, the profile of Bassam Eid, the Director of the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, is thankfully continuing to grow. Eid’s latest campaign is for the overhaul of UNRWA, the UN refugee agency dedicated solely to the Palestinians, which he says [...]
