Former Malaysian president Mahathir Mohamed:
“The Jews had always been a problem in European countries. They had to be confined to ghettoes and periodically massacred. But still they remained, they thrived and they held whole Governments to ransom…Even after their massacre by the Nazis of Germany, [Jews] survived to continue to be a source of even greater problems for the world…The Holocaust failed as a final solution.”
George Galloway at Viva Palestina Malaysia this week:
Dr Mahathir and I have worked together on Palestine for years” [...]
“Starbucks gives a huge cheque to Israel every year [...]”
There is blood in this coffee… there is blood in this perfume”
“Everyone needs to ask themselves [...] are they doing enough to weaken the people who have made [the Palestinians] suffer”
“this is being done by the European settler colonial state of Israel”
“Why does Israel need an embassy when Starbucks has an embassy here?
Gene adds: And yet more jaw-dropping stuff from Galloway, in an interview with the Jakarta Globe while he was in Indonesia.
The Scottish-born newsmaker has now retired from the political arena. “After 23 years, I decided enough was enough,” said Galloway, who resigned in 2010. “Even Mandela only did 27 years.”
No, George. You are not in any way comparable to Nelson Mandela. And no, George. You did not decide “enough was enough.” The wise and discerning voters of Poplar and Limehouse and Glasgow decided it for you.
