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.

    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, […]
