1. Singling out a people, a race, the Jewish people in this...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (02.21.13), and denying it the universally accepted right of the national self-determination and independence is pure and simple a form of racism. What we saw here is a British racist acts, and in this case the act was fairly mild..
2. Terrific!!
Brian ,   London UK   (02.21.13)
So pleased that the idiot, racist, dangerous, aggressive piece of @#?* showed himself up in this way towards a young Israeli student who conducted himself maturely, peacefully and intellegently. I hope complaints and repercussions by Oxford University and The Jewish Board of deputies throws a huge spotlight on this insult-to-humanity Galloway.
3. He really must not like to lose debates
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (02.21.13)
It just shows how the peace process really works. There are those who will speak with anyone under any condition (us) and those who won't (them)
4. Stiff Neck brit galloway Is Eurotrash
Racist nonsense Should Be Sanctioned and Fined! What would you expect from someone where hizbullah is Not Considered A Terrorist Group! When his wife and daughters wear a hajab and burka he might realize he's JUST A Dihmmi!!!!
5. Galloway is a perfect example of
Stephen in New York   (02.21.13)
the depraved and primitive irrationality of the ISM/BDS crowd which understands perfectly that the elimination of Israel will lead to a bloodbath of the Israeli Jews. Are there any secular democratic states in the Arab world?
6. "Bug" Galloway
Steven ,   San Francisco   (02.21.13)
Bug is an especially notorious Jew-hating creep but one of the more comical anti-Semites on the current scene. At least the students had some comic relief as study and tests can become a real drag at times.
7. Disgraceful
Bertram ,   London, UK   (02.21.13)
I am utterly spalled by the disgraceful, but by no means unexpected, behaviour of someone who claims to be a democratic politician. Galloway is nothing but a verbose, bigoted clown.
8. The quintessential Euro Lefty on display
Cameron ,   USA   (02.21.13)
9. P.S. to # 1: The MP ought to know: Israel is the liberal...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (02.21.13)
... democratic and sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people. It was proclaimed as such based on the Jewish people's historic/natural and universally accepted right of national self-determination and independence of the Jewish people in its ancestral homeland. This right was translated to a legal one and found its expression in the San Remo conference, 1920; then in the League of Nations decisions, 1922; and, finally it was etched into the UN Charter, Article 80, 1945 as an irrevocable part of the UN Charter. Spiting at the Jewish people's historic, ethical and legal right is a form of spiting not only at the Jewish people but also at international law.
10. Galloway , a Brittish MP!!!
Tomi ,   Hungary   (02.21.13)
Mr. Galloway, is a reliable hater of anyone with Jewish descent and a brave fighter for real arab democracies. Therefore he visited plenty times Saddam Hussein in Baghdad. The Iraqi regime was a model of democracy for him. Can we expect other behaviour from Mr. G? In the meantime he is a lawmaker in the UK. He earned his deserved place in the Parlament in London.
11. Mahmood Naji
David ,   Montreal,Canada   (02.21.13)
I salut your open mind and your intellectual behavior. Hopefully one day we can all live in peace.
12. Some people think diversity is great.....
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (02.21.13)
until someone doesn't agree with them. Then they show their true colors.
13. anti-semitic "show"
DavidR ,   USA   (02.21.13)
If this idiot Galloway can't understand that a name such as Eylon Asian-Levy is Jewish he is way way to stupid to be an MP. He knew! But, he wanted to make a scene and get his name in the news.
14. let's face it
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (02.21.13)
We have friends and we have enemies. Our enemies act of out an irrational hatred for Jews and Israelis and are not willing or able to hear the other side of the story. Sadly, this is the way it is in this world.
15. This man is a hero to
Paul ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (02.21.13)
all the deprived masses infected with Jew-hatred. They will talk with Hamas, Iran, every degenerate, but to Jews their stomachs turn too much. Only those that share their rotten ideologies and twisted world view.
16. He negotiated with Saddam urging him to increase his kickbac
ab   (02.21.13)
-ks to him,G.G. ,during the "Oil for Food" period. Brit Internal Revenue chooses to close her eyes on this udeclared income,too uncomfy politically
17. What if it had been an Arab Israeli? Ethiopean Israeli?
David ,   Boston, USA   (02.21.13)
Makes you wonder about the leftists. If they cant handle debating someone, how much merrit do you think their opinions have, less so their so called claimed facts. Everyone is entited to an opinion, but if you arent able to look at someone else, listen to theirs and debates, its goes to question the legitimacy of that persons statements and question what the basis of their opinions are.
18. ahaha well, you cannot blame him can you?
Feras   (02.21.13)
you can bring the best philosopher in the world to argue about that a square is a square with an israeli jewish and he'll be made what do you think about an argument about the state of israel?? no matter what israel did, or what crimes it committed, Israeli jews will always make it like the virgin mary.. so there's no point in arguing
19. Galloway
Rachael ,   Tel Aviv, israel   (02.21.13)
I recommend that MP Galloway review the British newspapers of 1947 - there is a great similiarity between what he seems to be opposing and how the British behaved in what was then called "Palestine"....
20. George Galloway
Get Real ,   UK   (02.21.13)
His views on Israel and his support of terrorist organisations and of dictators are well known so even If he had stayed, debated and won, he would not have received the same amount of publicity for his views as he has done by walking out. Good example of depriving of free speech and debate and of all places at a University. Pity for the students.
21. Ugly antisemitism
Wade ,   NYC USA   (02.21.13)
They pretend that they have logical and reasoned arguments against Israeli policy. Actually, they hate the concept of Jewish sovereignty and will therefore strive to sabotage Israel at every turn. Pure and unadultorated antisemitism! Galloway says he doesn't recognize Israel. He intends that the Jews should just offer their throats for slitting.
22. Galloway is human thrash!
Maurice ,   Montreal   (02.21.13)
23. #18
Moshe   (02.21.13)
Someone is in denial about the existence of Israel. Its been almost 65 years, Israel is going nowhere.
24. Coincident ??? ,...
split ,   US   (02.21.13)
It looks like this place was packed with 'israel firsters' ,...
But we do not need his love .Seriously though ,Mr Galloway made himself appear stupid by walking out of the hall /debate.
26. Despicable
Robert ,   US   (02.21.13)
I'd like to know who the people are in his district. Who votes for this clown? They should be ashamed.
27. And Brits Accuse Israel of Being "Aparthied Regieme"?
emanon ,   USA   (02.21.13)
28. Comment
Jake ,   Illinois, USA   (02.21.13)
He must have been losing the debate. What an idiot.
29. The face of British anti-Jewish racism!
Adam Smith   (02.21.13)
Oh loss there then.
