Anti-Israel MP George Galloway Beaten Up, Left with 'Broken Jaw' on London Street
The notoriously anti-Israel and anti-West Member of Parliament George Galloway has reportedly been beaten up on a London street tonight, with one news outlet reporting that Galloway has suffered a broken jaw at the hands of his attacker.
The MP for Bradford West is no stranger to verbal scuffles, but this evening he found himself at the tail end of a physical one, when a man apparently shouted comments about the Holocaust and proceeded to beat up the MP as he posed for pictures.
Galloway, who has recently been interviewed under caution by police for claiming that his constituency in the north of England should be an 'Israel-free zone' is said to have been taken to hospital and remains "badly bruised".
Police on the scene made an arrest. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Police were called at approximately 1940 hours to Golborne Road, W10, after a man was assaulted in the street.
“Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped.
“He was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and taken to the south London police station where he remains.”
Galloway has made headlines recently for refusing to debate an Israeli student, claiming that he doesn't recognise the Jewish state. He also is known for his support for Syrian president Bashar al Assad, and former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, whom he once referred to as "indefatigable".
