A Blazingcatfur public service announcement:
George Galloway, a British politician and broadcaster, is an outspoken critic of Israel and a supporter of Hamas and Hizbollah. He will be a guest speaker at the Metropolitan United Church in Toronto. His diatribes are inflammatory and, I believe, constitute a danger to Jewish communities in Canada. We have already seen what years of unbridled anti-Israel and anti-semetic rhetoric has resulted in for Jews in Britain. Following is the information regarding this forum:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with George Galloway, following is one of his quotes and a youtube link. If you take the time to watch the video, you will realize that his statements about Israel are completely fallacious.
In August 2006, during a press conference in a Beirut hotel, Galloway said, referring to the Israeli military operations in Lebanon:
“I came here to extend my congratulations to the Lebanese people on a great and historic victory against this aggression. I want to congratulate the Lebanese resistance and their leading edge, Hizbollah, whose martyrs and her s have achieved this great victory. And in particular to their leader, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, whose name now rings in joy around the world.”
