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.”

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.
