Video opens with George Galloway being hugged and kissed by well wishers in Jordan.
He then gives a comment to a news crew from Jordan TV.
Galloway: "Uh, we're, uh, we're overwhelmed with the support of the masses in Jordan, and we have been, actually all the journey. Especially from Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan. And we are uh praying that uh the same welcome in Egypt and that we can cross the border."
Next is a wide shot of the crowd gathered to hear Galloway speak.
The men standing near the podium are waving flags, including the flags of Hamas and of the Izz al Din al Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing.
Young men standing in the stage above the speakers' platform chant a taunt to Jews reminding them of a battle in 629 AD, and that they will be slaughtered again:
"Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahoud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud"
"Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, The army of Muhammad will return"
After that, Galloway is seen speaking at the podium.
"In the name of Viva Palestina in Britain, in Ireland, in the United States of America and in Malaysia. In the name of the Perdana Global Foundation and it's leader Tun Doctor Mahathir Mohamad, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, (crowd - "Takbir! Allahu Akbar") And especially in the name of the Turkish Army of Erdugan, led by my comrades Fahame Bulent the leader of I.H.H. the great Turkish organization. I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all those in Jordan who have welcomed us and sent us on our way on a magic carpet of love and affection all the way to Gaza."
Then, another comment from Galloway:
"It's time for the Arab world to stand up to its potential, to its history, to its religion, to its culture and come to the rescue of the people of Palestine."
"Viva, viva Palestina! (Crowd replies - Viva, viva Palestina!) Viva, viva Palestina! (Crowd replies - Viva, viva Palestina!) Viva, viva Palestina! (Crowd replies - Viva, viva Palestina!) Asalam 'Alaykum, Asalam 'Alaykum."

Just like any liberal socialist, this man is wanting to be liked by the enemy. Make no mistake George, they hate you just as much as they hate Israel and the United States. They hate the UK just as much because the UK doesn't tow their line. If you don't believe exactly like they do, they think you deserve to die--with no trial. You are being used and you are a fool.
His 15 minutes are up

George Galloway has the right to make a living the way he can. And his way is to kiss up to Muslims in general and the so-called Palestinians in particular. The Circus he mounted impresses no one, least of all the Israelis. They will continue to defend their land against criminal Arab Muslims and soon they will take the offensive by simply conquering ALL Jewish land, in Cis- and Trans-Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc.
There is not the slightest chance, with or without Galloway the Clown, for Palestinians to have a state of their own next to Israel. For 65 plus years they said no and no and no again to peaceful coexistance with the Jewish state. Now it is NO forever! But they will get used to the new reality, especially when they will living amongst their brethren forever and ever.
Galloway is merely one more antisemite that the civilized world will have to dispose of together with his Muslim gang of terrorists. Nothing really complicated.

What a disgusting display of submission, stupidity, and growling ever by a so called British politician. This pig traitor should not be welcomed back to the UK. No real british person should be proud of him.
