Galloway Voted out of Parliament

Galloway also is the founder and head of the British-based group Viva Palestina, which supports the terrorist organization Hamas. A Canadian judge is deciding whether a year-old ban placed on Galloway should be upheld. Egypt deported Galloway in January, and he was declared "persona non grata" by the Egyptian foreign ministry, barring him from entering the country again.
Galloway placed third in his re-election bid to Labour's Jim Fitzpatrick in Poplar and Limehouse, East London. Fitzpatrick won 18,679 votes, while Galloway received 8,160 votes.
Galloway expressed confidence a day earlier. "I expect to win and wipe Fitzpatrick into third." British political analysts seemed to have a better read, though, and anticipated his defeat. One wrote, "Galloway is unpopular with Islamist fundamentalists because he's trying to persuade Muslims to vote. And he's unpopular with the BNP [British National Party] crowd for the same reason. He was physically attacked in a punch-up three weeks ago."

This Man Loyalty,To His Own Peoples,is as Good as his Word,He befouls the Country he lives in by his abusive Rhetoric, Toward his own peoples and is one of the most hated Peoples in Great Britain.
My advise to all good Peoples,dont touch him with a Barge Pole, what ever his Causes may be. And be aware of the Pollution that he has waiting in the Shadows,to replace a new Generation.

I'm Canadian, and one grateful that Mr. Galloway was refused entry - not because of his infantile politics, but because of his substancial financial support of terrorist organizations and his lies and denials about that support, both of which contradict Canadian law.
In any case, Mr. Galloway was not stopped from appearing via satellite video link to promote his anti-Semitic solutions to the troubles in the ME. As he was not prevented from spreading his poisonous ideas in Canada, but only from soiling my country with his person, the court should declare him persona non grata and leave him stew at home.
Of course, he's not so welcome at home now as he once was either, but sometimes that happens when one wakes up on the wrong side of history.
