George Galloway in “racist” walk out

Galloway refuses to debate with Oxford student because he is Israeli.


George Galloway walked out of a debate on Wednesday evening after learning that the student he was debating with was an Israeli.

The Respect MP had just begun to debate Eylon Aslan-Levy, a third-year PPEist at Brasenose, on the motion ‘Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank’.

But as Aslan-Levy was beginning his speech, and said, “We wanted peace, we got war,” Galloway could be heard asking if his opponent was an Israeli.

After Aslan-Levy confirmed that he was, Galloway grabbed his coat and began to leave the room, refusing to continue the debate and saying: “I don’t debate with Israelis. I’ve been misled.”

Students at the talk could be heard gasping and accusing Galloway of racism, but he repeated: “I don’t recognise Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.”

Aslan-Levy, who grew up in London and has joint British-Israeli citizenship, said: “I am appalled that an MP would storm out of a debate with me for no reason other than my heritage.

“To refuse to talk to someone just because of their nationality is pure racism, and totally unacceptable for a member of parliament.”

But the MP for Bradford West was defiant later that evening, writing on Twitter: “No recognisation of Israel. No normalisation. Christ Church never informed us the debate would be with an Israeli. Simple.”Aslan

Mahmood Naji, who runs Oxford Debates and selected Galloway to speak, said: “I was initially relieved to see Mr Galloway arrive after we had waited around one hour and 20 minutes after the agreed time of arrival.

“The debate then seemed to be running smoothly with Mr Galloway brandishing his usual rhetorical flourishes, and Eylon responding in equally effective manner.

“However as soon as Mr Galloway started inexplicably putting his coat on I was stunned.

“What’s more, Mr Galloway claimed to have been ‘misled’ as he walked out, which was utterly baffling. At no point during my email exchange with his secretary (and I have all the emails to prove it) was Eylon’s nationality ever brought up or mentioned, nor do I expect to have to tell the speaker what his opponent’s nationality is!”

Naji added: “I am deeply disappointed at Mr Galloway’s behaviour. I am baffled by his claim that he had been misled, and I am extremely sorry to all the people who waited so long for the debate only to see it cut short.”

Galloway has been consistently outspoken in his views on the Israel-Palestine conflict, and in 2009 received a Palestinian passport from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. Hamas are considered a terrorist organisation by the US and the EU.

This was the second time this academic year that Galloway has visited Oxford. In October the former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ contestant spoke at the Oxford Union, where he was met with protests by members of Oxford Feminist Network. These came after Galloway described allegations of rape facing Wikileaks leader Julian Assange as constituting “bad sexual etiquette”, but added “not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion”. These comments led to the NUS passing a motion adopting a ‘no platform’ policy towards the MP.

    Could you please be very specific and clearly state what verbal abuse do you claim I wrote?

    I have ignored the constant abuse from the other side and only stated the facts on the ground, and what is actually going on right now, I do not appreciate being accused of something that I didn’t say or do.

    IDF soldiers opened fire on Wednesday night at two terrorists who approached an IDF position near the community of Einav in northern Samaria.

    As the two terrorists approached the soldiers, they hurled a firebomb at them. The soldiers returned fire, killing one terrorist and wounding the other.

    PA officials told AFP that the killed terrorist was a 16-year-old teen, identified as Amer Nassar.

    The latest attack comes after two days of unrest in Judea and Samaria, as Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted over the death of an elderly terrorist who was serving time in an Israeli jail.

    The terrorist, 64-year-old Maissara Abu Hamdiyeh, died of cancer on Tuesday in the Soroka Hospital in Be’er Sheva. The PA has blamed Israel for Hamdiyeh’s death, which led to a wave of rioting.

    Amir Nassar and his pal, were TERRORISTS (like you) who attacked an IDF checkpoint with molotov cocktails and were shot trying to kill Jews.

    I can’t wait to to read the same thing happening about you.

    This is what you have here. Oxford, jihadis posting defense of other jihadis who walked up to a checkpoint and tried to kill the soldiers guarding it, and then cry about it and call it “zionist violence”.

    After scum like CD are through with Israel, you won’t be able to walk in London without bowing down to your local sheik, and if you don’t, you’ll be called RACIST ZIONIST cause you wont lick their KORANUS.

    To be honest with you, you just confirmed exactly what I thought all along, how did the situation escalate to this stage, without anyone doing anything about it, it’s the usual propaganda so people miss the facts that Israel is in fact exterminating the children in Palestine.

    Anyhow, the only thing that I get from your messages is that it’s a crime to be a moslem, that there’s nothing wrong with killing moslems, you’re supposedly doing us a favor and we’re meant to be thankful, I just hope that sooner rather than later, the human race wake up to what they are really supporting, they all know but chose to turn a blind eye to the real crimes against humanity.

    Am I missing something here, isn’t it a crime to be killing people? bulldozing homes? what is the justification to the constant killings that’s been going on for the last 65 years?

    What other country have millions of people detained behind barbed wires and walls? stop people from getting on with their day to day life? isn’t this what you complained about during the holocaust?

    “Am I missing something here, isn’t it a crime to be killing people?”

    Yeah, you’re missing something, its called BRAINS.

    Yes it’s a crime for arabs to try and kill Jews manning a checkpoint.

    And the only bulldozing of homes is done when the homes are those of murdering terrorists or the homes are covering smuggling tunnels used to bring in kassam rockets and explosives and drugs everything else your STINKING TRIBAL CLANS OF MUSLM SCUM have been doing

    “what is the justification to the constant killings that’s been going on for the last 65 years?”

    The only constant killing is that by muslim scum urged by other scum like you against Jewish civilians. ONLY MUSLIMS sneak into people’s homes and slit the throats of sleeping women and children, only MUSLIMS walk into pizza parlors and discos and schools and airplanes and synagogues and wedding halls and YES INTO MOSQUES, and blow themselves up.

    When you reform islam or the world has had enough and wipes out islam, then there will be an end to “constant killing”.

    “What other country have millions of people detained behind barbed wires and walls?”

    uh, lebanon, syria egypt and Jordan where so-called “palestinians” live in fake “refugee camps” because their fellow arab muslims will not absorb them THE WAY JEWISH ISRAEL ABSORBED THE 600,000 JEWS EXPELLED FROM THOSE ARAB NATIONS AFTER 1948.

    “isn’t this what you complained about during the holocaust?”


    You scum sucking POS filth, your ancestors were nazis, you muslims supported the nazis, the holocaust wasn’t about barbed wire it was about EXTERMINATION OF THE JEWS, an everyone know MUSLIMS SUPPORTED THE EXTERMINATION OF THE JEWS THEN AND STILL DO NOW.

    Jews in Europe weren’t trying to invade Germany and take it over LIKE MUSLIMS DO TO ISRAEL, they weren’t raising armies over and over to invade Germany LIKE MUSLIMS DO TO ISRAEL, they weren’t firing rockets into Germany LIKE MUSLIMS DO TO ISRAEL, they weren’t slitting the throats of the german women and children LIKE MUSLIMS DO TO ISRAEL.

    Guess what book is on the Arab best seller list year after year? MEIN KAMPF.

    All people are equal, killing is criminal regardless whether it’s Arabs or Jews, if you don’t know that, then you honestly have a very serious problem.

    You are NOTHING but a racist and nothing you’re saying is worth listening to, when you treat all people as equals, feel free to come back, go find someone else who believe your rubbish.

    Israel IS NOT a VICTIM, and have never been a victim since it was set up 1948, so stop expecting sympathy, moslems didn’t try to invade Israel, they were living there for thousands of years, and the Zionist decided to make their land and their homes into a Jewish state.

    Every other nation would have fought for their survival, this doesn’t make them terrorist, trying to exist against the odds, what do you want them to do, die, it’s our natural instinct to fight back against our tormentors and that’s what Israel is, the tormentors.

    As for the holocaust and Europe, this had nothing to do with Palestinians, it happened in Europe, it was done by europeans, so sacrificing other people their land is not fair, the only ones who ended up paying the price are the palestinians, every one else got away.

    I don’t have nazis in my ancestors, but frankly today’s zionists have gone way beyond what any nazi’s have done and been getting away with all these years, Nazi’s were stopped with few years, I don’t see anyone stopping Israel’s atrocities.

    “All people are equal, killing is criminal regardless whether it’s Arabs or Jews, if you don’t know that, then you honestly have a very serious problem.”

    You an ignorant stupid liar. Anyone who thinks it’s ok to run up to a military checkpoint and throw a molotov cocktail and not expect to get shot DESERVES TO BE SHOT.

    You should try it.

    “moslems didn’t try to invade Israel, they were living there for thousands of years”

    Islam has only been around for 13000 years, you ignorant turd eating psychopath, and they only stole from the romans AND NEVER MADE A STATE ON THAT LAND.
    “and the Zionist decided to make their land and their homes into a Jewish state.”

    TOTAL BULLSHIT. What the Jews didn’t buy they took in DEFENSIVE WARS after muslims REPEATEDLY INVADED the land that Israel was REsettled on the same way Iraq, Syria Jordan and Lebanon were “created”.

    “frankly today’s zionists have gone way beyond what any nazi’s have done and been getting away with all these years,

    Tied old comments from typical ignorant muslims ass-kicker the koranus.

    Because we have all seen the ovens that the Jews have put the so-called “palestinians” in, RIGHT, STUPID?

    Hey STUPID, take your head out of your ass, in two years more muslims have been killed by other muslims IN SYRIA, (70,000) than in all the conflict with Israel.

    But keep it up, maybe you can spur the muslims into attacking Israel some more, and we can UP THE ANTE, track down your IP address, and make sure you wind up at the bottom of the grave, where you belong for inciting MURDER AND WAR.

    Scum like you and Galloway are the real war criminals. You should be dragged to the Hague or gitmo, or dealt with like bin laden, finished off with a kosher salami up your *ss, a pork sausage stuffed in your mouth and set on fire on youtube before being pissed on and thrown into a hole.

    ok, you tell me, who lived on the land before 1947?

    Just because you don’t have ovens in Gaza, it doesn’t mean it’s not as bad as the holocaust, if not WORSE, the fact you control the air, sea and land, blow them up any time you please, bomb and destroy trapped defenseless people time after time, is far worse than any ovens, these people have been living in far worse subhuman conditions for decades now.

    inciting murder and war, how, you are actually conducting murder and war every single day, daily genocide and crimes against humanity, right in front of our very eyes, yet you want us to believe you’re the victim and self defense!!!

    You stupid asshole, Israel has just put up FIELD HOSPITALS for Syrian refugees.

    What have your precious “palestinians” done for the Syrians? GONE TO SUPPORT AL QUEDA IN SYRA?

    Muslims, adept at sucking the life out of fellow muslims when they can’t kill Jews and Christians.

    “You bulldoze Palestinian homes every day and build Jewish houses in their place, how touching!!!!!”

    More lies by the diarrhea mouth known as CG:

    there is more illegal construction of ARAB homes in Jewish Israel than there are jewish homes being built.

    Keep up your lies and exaggerations, I am sure the Oxford students here are happy to see HOW STUPID YOU THINK THEY MUST BE TO BELIEVE THEM.

    PS – open your mouth, I feel the urge to take a CG.

  12. CG

    7th April 2013 at 20:15

    The only reason you call them illegal is because Israel doesn’t give permits for Arabs, let’s not flatter each other here, I’m busy now, otherwise I’ll be more than happy to send you many links about this very subject.

    Oxford students are not stupid, they only need to decide what make sense and what doesn’t, for your information many of them went to Palestine at the beginning of the year and were shocked by what they saw and what they went through, there’s a talk about their trip this month here in Oxford.

    You lie whenever you take your head out of your koranus and move your lips.


    1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

    2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

    3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

    4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

    5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

    6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

    7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

    8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

    9. In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

    10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution, and slaughter.

    11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

    12. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

    Israel’s total land mass = 12,877 square miles

    The land mass of the 21 Arab countries surrounding countries, along with the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas including Gaza and parts of the West Bank = 8,368,272 square miles/

    Israel’s land mass compared to its Arab neighbors = 1/16th of 1%…

    13. The Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

    14. The PLO’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.

    15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

    16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

    17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.

    18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

    19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

    20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, and the World is silent as NO JEWS WILL BE ALLOWED TO LIVE in the new “Palestine”.

    While you are reciting so called history, we are 2013, all we deal with is the here and now, Palestinians are under occupation and Israel is conducting crimes against humanity.

    Just like the rest of the world managed to resolve, US/slavery, SA/Apartheid, Germany/Holocaust, Soviet Union/Communism, this is the last major injustice that should happen, were both Palestinians and Israeli will live under the same human rights.

    They’ve all managed to live together in peace, even vote for a black president, so there’s nothing except the radicals like you who are the obstacle to peace, the sooner it’s sorted, the better for all of us.

    You’re nothing but a lying propagandist shill for a new terrorist state and the extermination of Israel.

    What you call “so called history ARE THE FACTS. There has NEVER been any other formal state on the land of Israel EXCEPT A JEWISH ONE.

    the so-called “palestinians” who live in Israel have the same rights as Jews. the so-called “palestinians” who live under the control of Abbas and in Gaza HAVE NOWHERE near the same rights, and if another new state is created for the so-called “palestinians”, Abbas has already said it will be AN APARTHEID STATE where no Jews will be allowed to live.

    Your “two state solution” is nothing except part of the PLO’s phased plan for the eventual wipe out of Israel.'s_Ten_Point_Program

    PS, you ignorant moron, you know what the solution was after Germany was defeated? OVER A MILLION GERMANS WERE MARCHED OUT OF THE SUDENTENLAND in Czechoslovakia and sent back to Germany.

    That is what should happen with the so-called “palestinians” you should all be marched out of ALL OF ISRAEL so you can live with the rest of the arabs in Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon Syria and Iraq where your ancestors came from who repeatedly invaded Israel.

    How on earth can you talk about facts when you are saying there has never been any other state except a Jewish one, you want the facts, Israel was created 1948, but that’s not when the world was created, every night on true movies this week there’s a film about the holocaust, why don’t you watch it, all they seem to be aiming for is getting to Palestine, are you saying that these films are based on lies?

    I honestly and truly couldn’t careless if it’s a one or 2 state solution, that’s the least of my problems, all I’m saying is that the occupation is completely removed, each and every single person live under the same human rights, close all detention centres and dismantle check points.

    You justifying the sickening killing on the checkpoints is evil and exactly what was happening in the 1940s, they didn’t see them as human beings, no one saw anything wrong with occupying them, here’s the reality of every day life

    Here’s about a book by a Jewish writer who started writing but when he actually went there he realised ‘It was so much more brutal than I thought it could be
