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.

    Can ‘Islamic Reformation’ Work? (REVIEW)

    It is cocktail hour on an April afternoon in 2004. The sun is hot on Amsterdam’s canals, and I am sitting at Café den Leeuw on the Herengracht with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Hirsi Ali is still a member of the Dutch Parliament, and we talk about Islam. Specifically, we talk about the concept of “moderate Islam,” or what she calls “liberal Islam.” And she has one word for it. “It’s absurd,” she says. “It’s complete nonsense. There is no ‘liberal […]

    A Look at the Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook (REVIEW)

    Everybody knows that cooking varies from country to country. There are Italian restaurants, Chinese restaurants, etc. We associate different styles of cuisine with different languages. Do we also think of the association of different cuisines with different dialects? We should, because cooking also varies from region to region. Litvaks and Galitsyaners have their own traditions of preparing gefilte fish. Marvin I. Herzog, in his book The Yiddish Language in Northern Poland: Its Geography and History (Indiana University, Bloomington, and Mouton & Co., The […]

    Analysis: Jewish Women Less Likely Than Catholics to Take Husband’s Name

    An analysis of New York Times wedding announcements showed that women married in Jewish ceremonies were less likely to take their husband’s last names than those married in Roman Catholic ceremonies, the Times reported on Saturday. The largest gap between the two groups was in 1995 when 66 percent of Catholic women took their husband’s names and 33 percent of Jewish women did the same. Nearly half of the women featured in the publication’s wedding pages since 1985 took their husband’s name after marriage, while about […]

    Report Highlights Success of Russian-Jewish-American Ballroom Dancers

    Russian-American Jews are some of the most successful ballroom dancing competitors in the U.S., South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) Radio reported on Thursday. Jonathan Sarna, a professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, said their success can be traced back to Jewish discrimination in the former Soviet Union. Because of the prejudice they faced, Russian Jews had to perform better than their peers in every field, including dancing, in order to have a chance of getting ahead. “They knew that if they […]

    An Israeli dancer made use of Jewish props in an extraordinary routine that left judges amazed when he auditioned for season 12 of TV dance competition So You Think You Can Dance on Monday. At first, the panel of judges appeared confused when Asaf Goren, 23, began his audition in Los Angeles with a tallit (prayer shawl) over his head and the blowing of a shofar, which he explained “opens the sky” for people’s prayers. However, as soon as he started his “Hebrew breaking” performance, […]

    JNS.org – A fairytale ending to Jewish basketball coach David Blatt’s first season in the National Basketball Association (NBA) was not meant to be, as the Blatt-led Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night dropped Game 6 of the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, 105-97, to lose the best-of-seven series 4-2.
