Remember George Galloway? Badly beaten in street assault in London



http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/aug/30/george-galloway-released-hospital-assault

A man has been charged with religiously aggravated assault after allegedly attacking George Galloway on a London street on Friday evening, police have said.

The Bradford West MP was released from hospital on Saturday morning having suffered a suspected broken jaw and rib as well as facial bruising. Neil Masterson, 39, has been accused of shouting about the Holocaust and attacking him.

The attack, it is claimed, was related to comments Galloway recently made about the conflict in Gaza. The MP was posing for pictures in Notting Hill in west London when the attack took place.


This guy was a hero around here during the Iraq war.

1. This should be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

Much as I despise Galloway, trying to silence him be beating him up is utterly unforgivable, and he should have all our support in hoping that the man who did it is convicted and punished.

36. I agree, but may I ask, why do you despise Galloway? Airc, he has been a consistent

voice in opposition to the Imperial Powers Foreign Invasions of countries where they have no business whatsoever. He vehemently opposed Bush/Cheney and was one of the few rational voices with the courage to speak out against that vicious war they started in Iraq.

He came here to the US and our right wing congressmembers THOUGHT they could 'get him'. I remember standing up and cheering as he WIPED THE FLOOR with them and I wished we had had some Dems who could put them so firmly in their places they were practically speechless.

Since when the 'Left' begin to despise pretty ALL of those who during those dreadful years that will go down in history as the turning point to the downward spiral of this country, were the courageous voices in the wilderness as even our own party did little to stop the criminals who took over this country.

I admire this man, he has courage which is in short supply these days. We see so little courage that we are accustomed now to weasel words rather than the strong statements people like Galloway made which should have been repeated by every person in this country who gave a damn about it. Instead all we get is weakness and the bad guys continue to control things.

47. I think that he is a fool and a hypocrite.

I believe that he feels that the West in general and America in general are the source of all evil, and that anyone opposing them should be given the benefit of the doubt; I don't think he consciously thinks that, but I think he adopts positions based on that and then finds - often paper-thin - rationalisations for them. Yes, he was right on Iraq and Afganistant, but for the wrong reasons - blanket hatred of American/Western intervention and insufficient distaste for dictatorships, not a specific analysis of the issue in question.

Some specific examples:

*His assertion that the executed boyfriend of homosexual Iranian asylum seeker Mehdi Kazemi was executed for sex crimes rather than for being homosexual, and that the case of gay rights in Iran was being used by supporters of a war with Iran.

*His defence of Julian Assange against accusations of rape - he appears not to get that having sex with someone without their consent is not OK.

*His willingness to share a platform with Hamas. To Western audiences he's condemned them; it may be he meant it, but actions speak louder than words, and I guess it was probably just for political expediency.

*His description of the IRA's murder campaign as a war.

*His denial that Hamas was "a terrorist organisation" (in context, this wasn't quite as bad as it sounds, but it was still bad).

*I don't think his attitude to Israel is antisemitic per se - as a non-Israeli Jew, I don't imagine he'd have a problem with me - but I do think it crosses quite a long way across the line into bigotry on national grounds.

48. The difference between terrorism and war is basically a legal distinction.

When a state uses violence to force people to comply it is called war or policing. When a non-state actor does the same it is terrorism. So, when the Israelis kill thousands of Palestinians and terrify the remaining millions it is a "war." But, when the Palestinians kill a few Israelis it is terrorism, even if there is proof positive that large Israeli crowds are gathering on hillsides to watch the destruction in Gaza, apparently unafraid.

I don't know shit about Mr. Galloway, but for many of us this bias of war vs. terrorism is unethical and dishonest. The most terrifyingly violent and powerful groups on the planet are not terrorists, which somehow seems wrong to me. If George Galloway agrees with that, then I would say he is correct at least some of the time.

49. I'm afraid I completely disagree with that - I think it's a very clear and obvious distinction.

It's arguably semantically possible for a campaign of terrorism to be part of prosecuting a war, but war and terrorism are two completely different things.

51. Disagree on what basis? Completely different?

A quick google of terrorism produces the following definition:

The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

Could you please explain to me how war is NOT the use of violence and intimidation to achieve political aims? Is that not what the Israelis are doing in Gaza? Is that not what we did to Saddam Hussein?

A quick google of war produces of the following defintion:A state of armed conflict between different nations or states or different groups within a nation or state.

Could you please explain to me how what the IRA or Hamas did/do is NOT a state of armed conflict between groups within a nation?

Terrorism and war are both the use of violence in pursuit of controlling land, wealth, and people. AKA the use of violence towards a political goal.

The difference is indeed semantic, though. If we support a violent, non-state group they are soldiers or rebels or freedom fighters. If we disapprove of a violent, non-state group then they are terrorists. Of course states use violence to terrorize dissenting groups into submission ALL THE TIME (ie Ferguson), but semantically they are not "terrorists."

Your line of thinking is thus utterly wrong, the line between terrorism and war is typically a legal distinction, not an ethical one, and the line between the two can be very blurry.

Employed by violently antisemitic "Press TV." Tool of reactionary Putin regime. Tool of anyone who will pay. A malign buffoon.

Of course he shouldn't have been beaten, and this act is being widely condemned by his most tenacious foes. But you have to be either an idiot, lacking any ethical compass, or an outright racist to regard him as a hero.

37. Your post is so full of 'wrong' I don't know where to start. He is not an 'enthusiastic supporter'

of Assad, anymore than we on the Left, including Galloway, were ever 'enthusiastic supporters' of Saddam but that was the right wing short cut to try to mischaracterize those of us who opposed our invasions of these countries.

He will speak wherever he can and so long as our own TOTALLY CONTROLLED CORPORATE MEDIA refuses to allow voices from the Left to speak, he is correct to take advantage of any air time made available to him. And so is every other person who is telling the truth about what is going on in this country and in the former Empire he is a citizen of and knows its bloody history only too well.

We need thousands more Galloways who have the guts to challenge those who have destroyed several countries and their people so far and show no sign of tiring of the bloodshed, if it is EVER to stop.

4. He was never worthy of admiration.

 

Name a horrible, despotic anti-US/UK regime, and you can find a quote from him praising them.

He's a professional troll.

See, e.g.,

http://m.huffpost.com/uk/entry/3050682


"We have to examine exactly who is threatening whom," he said, first reported by the Daily Caller. "Because one of the things I learnt on my two visits to North Korea, is that this is an extraordinarily cohesive political entity and society.

"They are courageously refusing to bow the knee to big power diktat and domination."

He added the caveat that he "does not agree with the North Korean system. I've been there, I've seen it up close and personal.

"But there have been achievements in North Korea, they have a satellite circling the earth. They have a nuclear power industry, even though they suspended it on false promises from President Clinton and US statesmen.

"They have a cohesive, pristine actually, innocent culture, a culture not penetrated by globalisation and Western mores.

He accused South Korea of being a "puppet state" of the US, adding: "I am much more afraid of the United States of America and so are most people in the world.

"North Korea has no intention to harm any of us. North Korea’s problem is with South Korea.

"South Korea exists because America invaded Korea, killed millions of people, divided the country and continues to garrison South Korea with military bases, nuclear weapons, chemical and biological weapon.”

"I believe that this is a United States trumped up little crisis,” he said. “They have pushed and pushed North Korea into a corner."

That said, politically motivated violence is abhorrent and this is severely disturbing.

20. The high point for me about him was when he took down the smug Senate Republicans on Iraq.

I thought I was going to lose my mind in those days. Gosh, I despised them. Asto whether he is or was right or wrong about other things and he's got in trouble before, that was a great encouragement to us during that era.

It was really good, although I am tired of the tough guy, cursing form of politics. It's red meat for the masses, makes future enemies and thus is unsustainable for the long haul.

I don't know who or why this guy beat him up. That guy needs a mental evaluation. These stories tantalize, don't tell much. It says something about religion and Israel, so they seem to be claiming the guy was either a religious or a political extremist.

He's just a criminal and they need to look up his record to see what else he has done. Not right to beat the old guy up. Guess this will be part of the future, as it in the past. Like the Southerner who beat the abolitionist nearly to death in the Senate before the Civil War.

38. And what is incorrect about those statements? We WERE in Korea, in Vietnam, in Iraq, in

Afghanistan, in South America and wherever we have been things have only gotten worse, other than WW11.

Clinton more or less shared Galloway's pov re Korea and was in the process of trying to unite North and South. IT WAS BUSH who blew that policy away.

I guess if you agree with Bush policies, you won't like Galloway. I do not, I have the utmost respect for his ability and courage to take down our very own Republicans right here in Congress when they tried to silence him and to say what so many others THINK but don't have the courage to say.

if it were, there are far more influential people than Galloway for them to attack.

It seems to be the act of a somewhat unbalanced Brit. The prime suspect has a Facebook page, which suggests that he supports both the Tories and a much further-Right, strongly Islamophobic group called Britain First; and is also, unusually for a Brit, a Christian Zionist: he is a Catholic, who supports Hagee Ministries as well as various other strongly pro-Israel organizations.

A man has been charged with religiously-aggravated assault after MP George Galloway was attacked in a west London street....


Neil Masterson, 39, of Camden Hill, will appear at Hammersmith Magistrates Court on Monday.

He has also been charged with common assault against a man in his 40s who came to the victim's aid, police said.

Mr Galloway was posing for pictures with people in the west London street when a man "leapt on him and started punching him", a spokesman for the MP said.

46. My guess, given the expressed views of the suspect...

is that Islamophobia is thought to have played a part, because Galloway is seen as pro-Muslim, and the suspect is explicitly anti-Muslim, and may have used this as a reason for the attack. Also, it has sometimes been claimed that Galloway converted to Islam when he married a Muslim wife (he has been married four times), though this is probably not true.

In any case, whatever the motivation, beating up people on the street so that they need hospital treatment, is clearly a serious offence.

and he speaks for a principled and unapologetic Left. That's why he is famous and why he is in Parliament again, even after Bush's poodle kicked him out of the Labour Party for his vocal opposition against the invasion of Iraq.

It is probably not the first time that some crazed nutcase has physically attacked him and it won't be the last. Such rabble act in the belief they are on a mission, and no doubt they do enjoy some support. Just waiting to hear somebody say "he had it coming" ...
