This is a guest post from Howie’s corner
At the weekend millions of ordinary Pakistani men and women defied the threats of the Taliban and went to the polls to cast their vote. A small number paid for that right with their lives. They are not alone:
In Bangladesh thousands of supporters of [...]
Galloway’s rants are getting increasingly bizarre. Here is his summary of the situation in Korea, shared with Press TV’s viewers:
“North Korea has no intention to harm any of us. North Korea’s problem is with South Korea.
So that’s ok then.

At Press TV, a website of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Gilad Atzmon defends George Galloway’s debate walkout while spinning his conspiracy theory that Zionists actually control the anti-Israel BDS campaign.
Mahmood Naji, the founder of Oxford Debates, has written a very eloquent open letter expressing his disappointment at George Galloway’s decision to refuse to debate an opponent after discovering he was Israeli. He concludes, with understandable irritation:

For years we’ve noted that George Galloway has absolutely no qualms about presenting programs on Press TV while that state-controlled Iranian website simultaneously hosts foul antisemitic garbage.
An article by a regular Press TV contributor named Mike Stathis, headlined “Jewish Mafia tied to death of America,” would hardly be worth noting, then– except that Mr. [...]
“I am not with the Syrian regime. I am against their enemies because their enemies are worse than them. I was not with Saddam Hussein but I was against his enemies because his enemies were worse than him.”
–George Galloway denouncing the Syrian opposition for stubbornly continuing the struggle against their brutal and repressive regime [...]
Note the responses from the formerly funny, now demented Roseanne Barr– the Victoria Jackson of the Left.
