George Galloway says Dr. Abbas Khan, who died in a Syrian prison shorty before he was set to be released, was guilty of the crime of “administering medical treatment in a war zone.”
…Galloway, who has spoken to the Syrian authorities and was due to collect Mr Khan on Friday, said: “We know what the crime [...]
Robert Fisk reports in The Independent:

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:
