George Galloway Assaulted; Stephen Harper Nominated for Nobel Prize


By Richard Edmondson

“What we are facing in Iraq now with ISIL is a greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before.”

Those words were spoken by British Prime Minister David Cameron in a Downing Street news conference on Friday.

As it so happened, on that very same day a member of the British Parliament was indeed attacked on a London street–though not by a member of ISIL. MP George Galloway was assaulted and punched repeatedly by what appears to have been a lunatic Zionist.

“George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him and calling him Hitler,” according to a spokesman for Galloway. “It appears to be connected with his (Galloway’s) comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust.”

Coincidentally, also on Friday, B’nai Brith of Canada announced that it is nominating Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the Nobel Peace Prize.

“In accordance with the rules of the Nobel Foundation it gives me great pleasure to nominate in my capacity as Professor of Modern Israel Studies at Canada Christian College, Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the Nobel Peace Prize in honour of the outstanding moral leadership he has demonstrated,” said Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada.

The nomination is apparently legally valid and officially recognized; according to the Nobel Prize website, “qualified nominators” can include “university rectors; professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology; directors of peace research institutes and foreign policy institutes.”

This of course doesn’t mean Harper will in fact be awarded the prize, but given some of the Nobel Committee’s previous choices, the possibility cannot be written off.

The assault and battery upon George Galloway.

The nomination of Stephen Harper for the Nobel prize.

Two events, taking place on different continents, but both occurring in the same 24-hour news cycle, and both sharing a common denominator: Israel.

Galloway has long been a critic of Israel and a supporter of Palestinian rights. Early in the month of August, as the Jewish state was in the middle of its attack upon Gaza and with the Palestinian death toll closing in on the 2000 figure, Galloway gave a speech in which he declared his home district, Bradford, to be an “Israel-free zone.”

One may understand Galloway’s strong feelings on the matter. The images coming out of Gaza at the time he gave the speech were horrific. The declaration of an “Israel-free zone” was of course nothing more than symbolic. It had nothing of a legal, binding nature to it. But apparently for the MP’s assailant, this was beside the point.

Police have charged Neil Masterson, 39, with one count of “religiously-aggravated assault,” and one count of common assault. (It seems that in addition to Galloway, a bystander in the crowd who attempted to come to the 60-year-old parliament member’s defense was also attacked.)

On the brutal occupation of Palestine, Harper is Galloway’s antithesis. Harper has been one of the most ardent and devoted supporters of Israel out of all Western leaders, and that’s saying a lot. During the Gaza bloodshed, the Canadian Prime Minister issued a public statement that included the following:

The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification. It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region.

Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions. Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict.

Canada is unequivocally behind Israel. We support its right to defend itself, by itself, against these terror attacks, and urge Hamas to immediately cease their indiscriminate attacks on innocent Israeli civilians.

Harper seems to have it backwards. Israel’s Operation Protective Edge has killed at least 2100 Palestinians, the overwhelming majority of them civilians, including more than 400 children. Israeli fatalities, on the other hand, totaled 70, 64 of whom were soldiers.

One man opposed this deadly Israeli assault on Gaza…while the other called for “solidarity with Israel.” The first man was assaulted and beaten for his views; the second nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

I have said before that we live in a topsy-turvy world, and the reason for this is obvious: Jewish power. In this I include the ability of Jewish lobbies to influence elected governments–even to the point of acting against their own national interests–as well as the power of Jewish media owners to shape and determine the parameters of “acceptable” public discourse. As someone once articulated it, this is the power not so much to control what people think as what they think about.

Or to put it another way: Jewish power has inflicted its own peculiar form of insanity upon the world.

In announcing his nomination of Harper for the Nobel prize, Dimant praised the Canadian prime minister for his “moral clarity.”

“Moral clarity has been lost across much of the world, with terror, hatred and antisemitism filling the void,” Dimant said. “Throughout, there has been one leader which has demonstrated international leadership and a clear understanding of the differences between those who would seek to do evil, and their victims. More than any other individual, he has consistently spoken out with resolve regarding the safety of people under threat — such as opposing Russian aggression and annexation of Ukrainian territory — and has worked to ensure that other world leaders truly understand threat of Islamic terrorism facing us today.”

“Moral clarity” apparently means condoning the flattening of entire neighborhoods, the bombing of schools, hospitals, and ambulances, and the killing of children as they play soccer on a beach. “Moral clarity,”  in other words, means you have succumbed to the insanity. And just like the Canadian prime minister, the man charged with assaulting Galloway, too, is suffering evidently from an acute case of “moral clarity” as well. But he is not alone. Not by a long shot. Galloway’s comments calling for an “Israel-free zone” seem to have sparked a widespread outbreak of “moral clarity” throughout the entire UK.

“He has been receiving a huge amount of death threats and hate mail since saying this,” said the MP’s spokesman.

Political leaders like Cameron seem inordinately preoccupied these days with the possibility of terror attacks from ISIL, but for some reason they choose not to perceive the very real danger of Zionist terror.

Be that as it may, a fair question–for those of us not burdened, at any rate, with undue excesses of “moral clarity”–would be this: of the two risks, which poses the greater threat to public safety?
