Following are excerpts from an interview with former British MP George Galloway, which aired on Palestine Today TV on May 24, 2011:

George Galloway: When President Obama is talking about a smaller and smaller Palestine, we have to insist that Palestine is one, from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.


Our next land convoy, which will arrive, God willing, in Gaza on the 27th of December this year, will be called "The Return Convoy," because we insist that Palestine is not only Gaza, the West Bank, and what they call "East Jerusalem." Palestine is the whole country and the whole people.


Interviewer: The largest insurance company in the world, Lloyd's, refused to insure the ships of the second Freedom Flotilla. How will you deal with this matter, which may hinder your progress?

George Galloway: Well, we will have no insurance, but God is great and we are doing God's work. We are not afraid of Israel. We are afraid only of God.

Interviewer: Yes, but many ports do not allow the passage of ships that are not insured.

George Galloway: Well, the harbor in Gaza is not going to prevent us. They are waiting for us. The people in Gaza are waiting for us with their open hearts. Neither will Turkey refuse to allow us through.
