George Galloway attacked

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Monday September 01, 2014 04:42author by fred Report this post to the editors

Skilled Orator and frequent thorn in the side of the establishment, MP George Galloway has been attacked while campaigning against Israel's treatment of Gaza. George had just stated that Bradford had been "declared an Israel-free zone" and urged people to reject all Israeli goods, services academics and tourists" when he was attacked by a man shouting about the holocaust


"George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him," the spokesman said.

"It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust."

Mr Galloway was interviewed under caution by police earlier this month after he made controversial comments about Israel.

The MP for Bradford West said in a speech that Bradford had been "declared an Israel-free zone" and urged people to reject all Israeli goods, services academics and tourists.

Mr Galloway also suffered a suspected broken rib and severe bruising to the head and face in the attack, which happened on Friday evening.

The MP was taken to St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, following the incident.

To wish him well in his convalescence, I am posting here a couple of his notable
appearances on TV
