British MP George Galloway: Gaza Is A Warsaw Ghetto

Source: Press TV (Iran)

British MP George Galloway recently compared Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto, saying that while the people of the ghetto uprising were hailed as heroes, "the Palestinians, when they rise up out of their Warsaw Ghetto, are called terrorists." Galloway, speaking on his weekly show on the Iranian English-language Press TV channel on April 12, 2014, also said that the Egyptian "junta" was "doing Israel's work" in murdering nearly two million Palestinians in Gaza.

Following are excerpts:

George Galloway: What else is Gaza but a Warsaw Ghetto? When the people, the heroes, of the uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto, who decided they'd rather die on their feet, than live on their knees, desperate for food and water, rose up and tackled their besiegers – those who were keeping them in that Warsaw Ghetto – they were rightly hailed and are remembered in history as freedom fighters, as heroes. Yet the Palestinians, when they rise up out of their Warsaw Ghetto, are called terrorists in your country, and in my country, never mind in the country that is doing the besieging.


The junta in Egypt have decided to compound all of this misery by locking the gates, destroying the tunnels, doing Israel's work in murdering the Palestinians – nearly two million of them – in Gaza.


More fool those idiots, who in the name of secularism or leftism, supported this junta coming to power, and pretending that somehow, a new Nasser had arrived on the scene. Nasser was ready to die to liberate the Palestinian people. These people, in this junta, are doing Israel's work in murdering the Palestinian people in Gaza.
