British Member of Parliament George Galloway has claimed on his Iranian state-funded television programme that “Zionists sent gunmen to the Maidan [Ukraine]” to force Ukrainian Jews to move to the Middle East. He also claimed that Israel is a “very ugly society”.
Galloway – who was recently slammed by pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups for what they called his anti-Israeli “racism” – agreed when a caller of his Press TV programme claimed, “Once you’re in Israel, it’s like a prison, you get stuck in there”.
“That’s true,” laughed Galloway, before going on to say:
“It’s a very ugly society in Israel you know?… Let me ask you this, brother, because it relates to what you’ve just said and most powerfully, coming from you. Is this one of the reasons why the Zionists sent gunmen to the Maidan [Independence Square] in Kiev, to help a revolution… the cutting edge of which, and the heavy-lifting of which, was being done by actually outright Nazi anti-Semites? The bizarre alliance in the Maidan is part of the thinking of this.
“Well if these Nazi come to power in Kiev, and they hate Jews so much, the remaining Ukranian Jews will feel that they have to go and settle is Palestine”.
The accusation that Israel is somehow supporting the Svoboda and Right Sektor parties in Ukraine will remind readers of when Galloway claimed that Al-Qaeda was being supplied with chemical weapons in Syria by Israel. He then lied to the British Parliament, claiming he had said “no such thing”.
Last week, Breitbart London reported another blatant Galloway lie, wherein he claimed that he had never refused to debate an Israeli – an incident caught on camera that resulted in him being accused of being a racist.
Galloway said at the London School of Economics, “I didn’t refuse to share a stage with an Israeli. I share stages with Israelis all the time.” But a video from last year shows him stating, “I don’t debate with Israelis. I have been misled.”
