British lawmaker George Galloway has been hospitalized after being attacked by a pro-Israeli man in London Friday.
The MP was posing for a picture with some of his fans in Golborne Road, in Notting Hill neighborhood, when the attack took place.
Galloway’s spokesman said the attack appeared to be “connected with his comments about Israel,” as the attacker was shouting comments about the Holocaust. He added that the British MP sustained bruises as the result of the assault and was in “a pretty bad shape.”British MP George Galloway
“George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him,” the spokesman said.
The pro-Palestinian lawmaker, who was taken to St. Mary’s hospital in Paddington, suffered from a suspected broken rib and severe bruising to the head and face.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said, “Police were called at approximately 19:40 to Golborne Road, W10, after a man was assaulted in the street. Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped.”
“He was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and taken to the south London police station where he remains.”
Earlier this month, Galloway was put under police investigation for making anti-Israeli comments and declaring his area of Bradford an “Israel-free zone,” over the Zionist entity brutal offensive on Gaza. According to al Manar
And according to THE Guardian:
George Galloway as been released from hospital after being assaulted on a London street, police have said.
A 39-year-old man arrested shortly afterwards on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm remained in police custody, the Metropolitan police said.
In 2008, Galloway was pelted with a rubber stress ball as he was campaigning in an open-top bus in London. He received medical treatment but was not taken to hospital. A man was arrested and cautioned over the incident. (end)
Galloway, a man whom we can call an English hero, a man whose voice stood high between the shouts of Propaganda and falsehood.
A man who made his life career, a Palestinian and an Arab cause trying to enlighten thousands of brain washed and tried to free Palestine at least in the West’s Mind and heart.
And it was no secret that he will end up killed or beaten by those who don’t want the light of freedom to shine again.
Will he succeed or join other great western figures, like Malcom X and Martin Luther king etc..
Though the cause is different but the goal is the same…. FREEDOMGeorge Galloway after assault
