Galloway: “I’m off to Iran before Israel bombs it”

posted at 9:39 pm on June 30, 2008 by Allahpundit

I confess, until reading this I had no idea that he had his own show on Press TV. I knew that he was “an excuse-maker for totalitarianism and an apologist for nihilistic religious violence,” and I knew that his excuse-making and apologism often carried him into the serpent’s lair. But not until now did I realize he had a formal relationship with Iran’s English-language propaganda apparatus. I should have guessed.

BY the time you read this, I will be in Iran. I’ve never been there before, never met an Iranian leader – I don’t even like the present Iranian leadership – so remember all that, because it might become important…

I’m going for the first anniversary of Press TV, on which I present two programmes – Comment at 10.30pm on Thursdays and The Real Deal at 10.30pm on Sundays.

This week I hope to meet Ali Larijani, formerly Iran’s nuclear negotiator, now speaker of the Iranian parliament and, I hope, the next president.

Larijani proved beyond even the CIA’s attempt at contradiction that Iran is acting entirely within her legal rights to develop nuclear power…

Israel, which has hundreds of nuclear weapons, seems to be planning to attack a country with none with the support of France, Britain and the US and all in the name of, er, checking the spread of nuclear weapons in that region.

Read it all or else you’ll miss his stirring tribute at the end to the prospect of Iran defending itself “by all means necessary.” A solution at last to the “this Palestine problem”? Dare to my dream, my friends. And read this too; it’s a response to Galloway written in March by British lefty gay rights activist Peter Tatchell, wondering why Gorgeous George would go so far as to minimize Tehran’s crimes against gays with snide remarks about the “khaki war machine” having taken on “a tinge of pink.” Simple: Any serious criticism of Iran makes things marginally easier for hawks, therefore there shall be no serious criticism of Iran.

Galloway, almost as bad as Obama.

Bishop on June 30, 2008 at 9:42 PM

Stay. Please.

wise_man on June 30, 2008 at 9:42 PM

So who exactly is this goof and why should I even care?

pilamaye on June 30, 2008 at 9:43 PM

Yeah, that “stepping in front of the bulldozer to stop it” works real well.

tree hugging sister on June 30, 2008 at 9:43 PM

Now, stand right about there. Perfect.

Galloway: “I’m off to Iran before Israel bombs it”

So he wants to see a few gay hangings and rape victim stonings while the watching is still good?

MB4 on June 30, 2008 at 9:48 PM

Great, a human shield, he has finally found his true calling.

Dare to my dream, my friends.

Gee, I hope if Iran does something bad to Israel, that our beloved George is spared the whoop-ass inevitable retribution. That would be so…ironic tragic.

AUINSC on June 30, 2008 at 9:49 PM

What do you need? 5 years severance? 7? Need a hand packing? I’ll call a limo! Got everything? Kids say goodbye! Have fun!

Reminds me of why I don’t cross the border to Mexico anymore, once you cross the border, you loose all of your United States “Rights”.

Don’t let the doorknob hit you on your way out, Jackass.
Maybe he can video tape kids flying kites outside of Iran’s Defense Ministry. Then Michael Moore can use the footage to make Fahrenheit JOOOOO.

Have a nice trip wanker.

Tim Zank on June 30, 2008 at 9:55 PM

Nice. This guy endorsed Obama a few weeks ago.

elduende on June 30, 2008 at 9:55 PM

Is he hoping that Israel bombs it while he is there or is that just me wishing he said that and means it ?

William Amos on June 30, 2008 at 9:56 PM

Better:

“I’m off to Iran while Israel bombs it”

davidk on June 30, 2008 at 9:58 PM

Nice. This guy endorsed Obama a few weeks ago.

elduende on June 30, 2008 at 9:55 PM

Yeah, funny that. There seems to be a ‘pattern’ among those who endorse Obama…but, it was racist of me to say that, of course.

AUINSC on June 30, 2008 at 9:58 PM

With a little luck, the first Israeli jet will lock the target pipper on his shiny bald pate.

Socratease on June 30, 2008 at 9:59 PM

Perhaps we should give Iran fair warning that this guy is on his way. We certainly wouldn’t see him for quite some time.

MB007 on June 30, 2008 at 10:00 PM

Human shield!

Human shield!

drjohn on June 30, 2008 at 10:00 PM

You guys are really, REALLY fouling up the future of Michelle’s kids. Are you all racists or something?

Oh, yeah. Sorry. Galloway. My mistake.

Does he still have his little unflushed piss bowl? ’cause that really, REALLY sold me on his genius. How can we possibly lose with trilobites like this in the gene pool?

wccawa on June 30, 2008 at 10:06 PM

See if they can get you a cot right next to the centrifuges, toad.

Galloway: “I’m off to Iran before Israel bombs it”

So Dhimmi Galloway is going Iran to get buggered before Israel bombs it…interesting my dear Watson! /Sarcasm

byteshredder on June 30, 2008 at 10:07 PM

Dmitri Shostakovich (one of my favorite musical creations, ever) wasted on a complete idiot.

George as cat, and crazy lady.

Hugging another pig.

For those who’re not video-prone.

This man is a snake…of the worst kind.
Have a nice time in Iran, collecting cash, I’m sure.

bridgetown on June 30, 2008 at 10:10 PM

Must listen/watch. All you need to know.

He’s dead wrong that Obama doesn’t need a board to speak from.

“This is what we call a target-rich environment!”

Agreed. This pointing out the obvious and getting lambasted for it has already gotten very old very quick. Lets keep it up! ;-)

Galloway: “I’m off to Iran before Israel bombs it”

Immediately before, we hope.

who is he and why did i read this?

custer on June 30, 2008 at 10:28 PM

Banned or no….

An audit of this slime by the British tax authority would show him for what he is, a prostitute. Cash is his the home of his soul and his pimp the mortgage holder.

custer, a weird communist/anarchyst British politician from Scotland.

I question the timing….

Dmitri Shostakovich, with one of my all time favorite musical creations, wasted on Galloway, the pig cat.

Don’t let the MOAB’s hitcha where GOD splitcha!

Bicyea on June 30, 2008 at 10:40 PM

I’d gladly just hit Gallowau in the head with a good English sledgehammer and save the world all the wasteful carbon usage that his needless flight and subsequent death in Iran would involve.

Save CO2, clobber a crank.

profitsbeard on June 30, 2008 at 10:42 PM

Yup, Israel has hundreds of nuclear weapons in their undeclared nuclear arsenal, which nobody has ever seen.
He knows this for a fact, because the Tooth Fairy told him so.

However, when Tony Blair or George Bush go to war based on flawed intelligence that EVERY intelligence agency believed, they are liars.

Alalazoo on June 30, 2008 at 10:48 PM

Galloway,try to visit Israel first before
Iran makes good on its threats,”Rotting Corpse”
comment!

Oh,Galloway,ask Iminadinnerjacketcrazyguy at
what price Iran is willing to pay,for an attempt,
at vapourizing Israel!

canopfor on June 30, 2008 at 10:55 PM

Is there any bus’s scheduled for Iran,
Galloway could catch a ride on it,
or under it! jus sayin!

I would NOT f**k with Israel at this point.

Or any point, for that matter.

A shield of hope : )

Texyank on June 30, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Just goes to show that anti-semitism is alive and well. I wonder what will go through his pointy head as Iran launches a nuclear weapon just as the point of the launch is destroyed by an Israeli missile? Probably his ass, hopefully. If you sleep with dogs, you get fleas, George.

mogilla on June 30, 2008 at 11:31 PM

When did Stacy Keach quit acting?

LickyLicky on June 30, 2008 at 11:41 PM

The time to bomb is Now!

Bet he’ll be the 1st one to ask our guys to get him out.

He should stay there UNTIL we bomb Iran. He can be a human shield.

Mojave Mark on June 30, 2008 at 11:52 PM

A very pathetic little toad — throws all principles out the window so he can aggrandize himself with tyrants. A moral idiot if there ever was one.

canopfor on June 30, 2008 at 10:55 PM

With all due respect, I have a lot more confidence in Israel’s ability and willingness to destroy most of Iran, than in Iran vaporizing anything.

I could be wrong, but Iran seems more likely to aim at Israel and hit Lahore than Tel Aviv. The good news for Lahore is that they seem unlikely to make a functioning nuke in the first place. The bad news for Tehran is that Pakistan knows how.

Jaibones on June 30, 2008 at 11:58 PM

He’s just following the money…its all about the cash with this toad.

d1carter on July 1, 2008 at 12:02 AM

As a signatory to the treaty governing the development of nuclear weapons, Iran has done nothing wrong under it either, at least according to the watchdog maintained by the international community, the IAEA.

Now, that is passing a “Global Test.” NOT!

He just gets creepier and creepier. [that “Big Brother” thing didn’t help either.

Fab times he has as a “presenter.” Apparently 4:15 a.m. was already taken by UBL….

Oh man. YIKES! Thanks for the link; however I might not be able to eat for a while without vomiting. He is sick….

Branch Rickey on July 1, 2008 at 12:10 AM

One can only hope that Galloway is at ground zero. A 2-fer would be great.

GarandFan on July 1, 2008 at 1:29 AM

Any serious criticism of Iran makes things marginally easier for hawks, therefore there shall be no serious criticism of Iran.

This annoys me. The same is done with Iraq. It rather suggests a weakness of principles. If invading Iran is a bad idea, it’s a bad idea no matter what they’re doing to homosexuals. If the war in Iraq is expensive, unnecessary, and harmful to our foreign relations, it’s a bad idea no matter how much violence has dropped. If they had any balls they’d just say “to hell with pragmatism” and actually stick to their principles. It might not get them very far — the masses are drunk with foolish pragmatism — but at least they wouldn’t be apologists for what is objectively evil.

Mark Jaquith on July 1, 2008 at 1:55 AM

Congratulations to Iran–you’ve got your very own Lord Haw-Haw. Hopefully, quality Israeli firepower will save the Brits the trouble of hanging this one.

M. Scott Eiland on July 1, 2008 at 2:31 AM

I hope Iran likes his red unitard and the tranny —I hear they like those in Iran

Now that’s what I call a target-rich environment.

I hope he gets there right as Israel does bomb it.

Seriously. No loss there.

Ouch. Been a couple years since I heard that name. That was in one of the Palestinian territories, wasn’t it? I doubt old George would do anything that dangerous; he likes to sit in the background and make treasonous comments, much like our own democrat party.

austinnelly on July 1, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Any chance of him getting a few of his lefty mates to join him?

RobCon on July 1, 2008 at 12:42 PM

Should we let it slip that he is, well, sorta, gay?

Sir Napsalot on July 1, 2008 at 1:03 PM

Galloway is a leftwing nutroot who thinks like Soros without the money. He is to Great Britain what Reverend Wright is to the U.S. Hatefilled racist who is actually mentally challenged like the rest of his ilk.
