Galloway: Suicide bomber would be “morally justified” in killing Blair

posted at 7:44 pm on May 25, 2006 by Allahpundit

I wonder how many Brits agree with him.

In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: “Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber – if there were no other casualties – be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?”

Mr Galloway replied: “Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it – but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq – as Blair did.”

Don’t they have sedition laws in Great Britain?

Galloway is the personification of traitorous scum. But we have him here. Bagdhad Bob, M. Albright, Clinton, Gore… they are not any different than Galloway.

Galloway needs to do what he does best: go back to crossdressing and dancing with transvestites on television.

He is off his meds again! How they can even allow him to wander around defies rational thinking. The man is quite frankly off his rocker

The poor man is off his meds again. There should be people there to watch him so this does not happen. Alas it has and this is what we have to deal with!

Isn’t there a rubber room for this jerk in Britain?

That fool is one sick puppy.

And obviously GQ has hopped onto the dhimmi bandwagon.

Huh? This guy is certainly against the death penalty, right? I guess execution of real criminals is different from political assassination, which is why it is apparently OK to kill the Prime Minister.

Don’t wonder.

It is certain that the soft British people who wholeheartedly support Palestinian terrorists suicide bombers, who hate Israel, who allow Muslim terrorists to live among them, who join the rest of the Europeans in hating America, certainly you didn’t expect that they will disagree with killing a “hardliner,” tough on terrorists, someone like Tony Blair, didn’t you?

Somebody just ship this idiot to cuba and keep him there!

Defector01 on May 25, 2006 at 9:34 PM

Defector01,

I agree. They can ship “Red Ken” along with him.

He weaseled his way out of sedition:

I am not calling for it…

Sarah D. on May 25, 2006 at 9:55 PM

There has to be some way to put this guy away. BTW, what the hell kind of question was that, anyway?

d1carter on May 25, 2006 at 10:05 PM

Many Brits have a long history of supporting the “palestinian cause” ( Galloway, Vanessa Redgrave, Ken Livingston, etc)…NEVER FORGET that the UK is a SOCIALIST STATE..period. Tony Blair is an anomaly. Most of the Brits these days dont even support their own military! Sad state of affairs…a long way from Churchill and Thatcher. Not to mention the current “british university professors” BOYCOTTING Israeli students/scholars. Enough said.

Surely, future historians will record these past forty years as the decades in which mass insanity almost took over the world.

Paul Atreides on May 25, 2006 at 11:15 PM

Why are them liberals so violent?

Why cannot they have humor?

Why cannot they send Galloway to seduce Blair? That should scare Blair to death!

easy87us, the Brits should send George the gallows way?

Unless there is no future which would mean insanity succeeded. It did today in the senate.

He may not have called for it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the PM’s security people call him in for “a little chat”.

Abigail Adams on May 26, 2006 at 10:40 AM

“Gorgeous George,” (that’s the sobriquet the Brits give him – I wonder why), is so bananas that he thinks it’s ok to say such a thing for public consumption.
