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.

    Forthcoming Major Action Movies Inspired by Jewish Comic Artist Jack Kirby

    JNS.org – With the recent Oscars in the rearview mirror, Hollywood’s attention now shifts to the rest of this year’s big-screen lineup. Two of the major action films coming up in 2015—Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters in May, and the third film in the Fantastic Four series, slated for an August release—have Jewish roots that the average moviegoer might be unaware of. As it turns out, it took a tough Jewish kid from New York City’s Lower East [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]
