Anti-Israel MP George Galloway Slapped Down by Prime Minister David Cameron (VIDEO)

Devout Israel-hater George Galloway, a member of the UK Parliament, was slapped down quite handily by David Cameron during prime minister’s questions Wednesday.

Galloway asked Cameron to “adumbrate the key differences between the hand-chopping, throat-cutting jihadists fighting the dictatorship in Mali that we are now to help to kill, and the equally bloodthirsty jihadists” in Syria that the UK is aiding.

Without hesitation Cameron responded, “Some things come and go, but there is one thing that is certain: Wherever there is a brutal Arab dictator in the world, he’ll have the support of the honorable gentleman.”

Watch  the video below:

The PMQ platform offers an opportunity for MPs to ask Prime Minister David Cameron questions on live TV, much to the chagrin of Galloway one would today think.

While Galloway’s question may actually have some validity, Cameron’s response was more indicative of Galloway’s reputation in UK politics. This is, after all, a man known to cavort with Saddam Hussein and his brethren, bestow support upon Hezbollah, and make claims that Israel killed Lebanese President Rafik Hariri—among many, many highly dubious actions and remarks.

A recent article in the Algemeiner demonstrated just how blind his anti-Israel position can be, when he re-tweeted a hash tag meant to be anti-Israel without even checking to see that the link attached to the hash tag was actually pro-Israel.

    You Jews. You’ll celebrate a prat like Cameron when it suits you to do so. Thinking you’re all so much smarter than the rest of us.

    Question: Did Cameron answer the question?

    No. He couldn’t, for reasons Greenwald makes abundantly clear.

  • Come on, are you deaf? The question was valid.
    What is the difference between Islamic fundamentalists in Saudi Arabia, Mali, and Syria?

  • Cameron did not answer the question. Cameron is the supporter of brutal tyrants. You have written total nonsense.

    • It is amazing how Galloway’s constituents can elect a moron of this proportion. The British people should be ashamed that such an anti-Semite sits in its parliament. The man is a fascist, a racist and an associate of the most evil forces of evil on the planet. He deserves to be black-balled.

      • Harris, can you tell me how a lack of support for the governmental activities of Israel equates to anti-Semitism? I think Idy Amin was an abomination but I don’t hate black people. This question was extremely valid and totally unanswered. Shame on Cameron and his cronies. And you.

        • When somebody applies a completely different set of standards for judging the acts of Jews than he does when it comes to judging others that is anti-Semitism. When somebody befriends holocaust deniers and lauds their actions that too is anti-Semitism. When somebody sides with the enemy when the sons of his neighbours are risking their lives in the war against terror, he is a traitor. If I was a citizen of the UK, I would be ashamed if somebody of Galloway’s pedigree sat in my parliment.

    Hamas Commander Reportedly Urges Hezbollah to Join Forces Against Israel

    JNS.org – Five months after Israeli forces tried to assassinate Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif in Gaza, Deif appears to have signed a letter that the terrorist group claims he wrote in hiding. The letter, addressed to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, expressed Deif’s condolences for the death of Hezbollah terrorists during Sunday’s reported Israeli airstrike in Syria. Deif is said to have survived multiple assassination attempts, but he has not been seen in public for years. According to the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar [...]

    JNS.org – The cracks that had been simply painted over for so long began to show in Ferguson, Mo., in November 2014, but in truth they had begun to open wide much earlier—on Saturday, July 13, 2013. That is when a jury in Sanford, Fla., acquitted George Zimmerman of culpability for the death of a 17-year-old black man, Trayvon Martin. The cracks receded from view over time, as other news obscured them. Then came the evening of Aug. 9, 2014, [...]

    A controversial scene in the season finale of Homeland sparked outrage by comparing former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to a fictional Taliban leader, the UK’s Daily Mail reported. In the season 4 finale episode, which aired on Dec. 21, CIA black ops director Dar Adal, played by F. Murray Abraham, justifies a deal he made with a Taliban leader by referencing Begin. He makes the remarks in a conversation with former CIA director Saul Berenson, a Jewish character played by Mandy [...]

    Placing Matisyahu Back Within a Life of Observance

    Shining Light on Fiction During the North Korea-Sony saga, we learned two important lessons. The first is that there are two sides to this story, and neither of them are correct because ultimately we should have neither inappropriate movies nor dictators. The second is that we cannot remain entirely fixed on the religious world, but we also must see beyond the external, secular view of reality. It’s important to ground our Torah-based thoughts into real-life activism. To view our act [...]

    Nine Decades of Moses at the Movies

    JNS.org – Hollywood has had its share of big-budget biblical flops, but until now, the Exodus narrative has not been among them. Studios have brought Moses to the big screen sparingly, but in ways that defined the image and character of Moses for each generation of audiences. The first biblical epic In 1923, director Cecil B. DeMille left it to the American public to decide the subject of his next movie for Paramount. DeMille received a letter from a mechanic [...]

    Exodus on Screen (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – The story of the Exodus from Egypt is a tale as old as time itself, to borrow a turn of phrase. It’s retold every Passover, both at the seder table and whenever “The Ten Commandments” is aired on television. But the latest adaptation—Ridley Scott’s epic film, “Exodus: Gods and Kings”—fails to meet expectations. Scott’s “Exodus” alters the source material to service the story and ground the tale, but the attempt to reinvent the biblical narrative becomes laughable. Moses [...]

That’s exactly the kind of beyond-their-years access enjoyed by students at the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) industrial vocational high school run by Israel Sci-Tech Schools, the largest education network in the Jewish state. More than 300 students (250 on the high school level and 68 at a two-year vocational academy) get hands-on training in the disciplines of aviation mechanics, electricity and energy control, and unmanned air [...]
