One response to “Isis & Israel Public Lecture

  1. George Galloway on Aparheid and Zionism: “Jews don’t have to be on the side of apartheid! They don’t have to be on the side of racism… They can stand up against it, … turn away from the racist apartheid ideology of Zionism, … turn back to where Jews were before the emergence and the hegemony of Zionism… The leaders of the socialist, communist, trade union, and liberal enlightenment throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries were great Jews… None of them believed that as Jews they should go and take somebody else’s country and drive millions of them around the world as refugees. All of them would have turned their backs on such an ideology… Because apartheid is a racist poison, it is the worst kind of fascism… Why should I debate with a supporter of Israeli apartheid?”
