Galloway and the Irish anti-Semitic ISM are adding to the injustice
The injustice done to the Jews of Israel of today is seen by looking back to the very origins of the issue in the Middle East. Knowing that the Jews were the most oppressed nation that the world has ever known (and still are just look at the resolutions of Jew and Israel hatred from the United Nations as just one small example of total contemporary anti-Semitism) the League of Nations gathered together post World War 1 wrote the following which is from the official League source
[start quote here]
The text of the mandate stipulates:
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory
should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people;
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have selected His Britannic Majesty as the Mandatory for Palestine; …
The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such
political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the
establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine, irrespective of race and religion.
An appropriate Jewish agency shall be recognised as a public body for the purpose of advising and co-operating with the Administration of Palestine in such economic, social and other matters as may affect the establishment of the Jewish national home and the interests of the Jewish population in Palestine, and, subject always to the control of the Administration, to assist and take part in the development of the country. The Zionist organisation, so long as its organisation and constitution are in the opinion of the Mandatory appropriate, shall be recognised as such agency. It shall take steps in consultation with His Britannic Majesty’s Government to secure the cooperation of all Jews who are willing to assist in the establishment of the Jewish national home.
The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of, the Government of any foreign Power.

Thus the Principal Powers in the world meeting together and after having won the recent contest between nations decided the above:
- 1 draws the link with the Balfour Declaration which had rightly given the Jews the space of Palestine for their national home, understanding that this was about 1 500th of the total area that was eventually falling into the lap of the Arabs. Could the Arabs they reasoned not accept the Jews living on 1 500th in a patch of land adjacent to the Sea!?
- No 2 lays it down that the Mandatory must create that Jewish Homeland. No mention at all about a Arab or Palestinian Homeland. There WAS NO PALESTINIAN PEOPLE THEN. And as I stated the Arabs were being given 500 times more territory e.g. Iraq, Syria. Lebanon etc
- No 4 makes it very explicit that the Mandatory should proceed and seek all Jews in the world who wish to return to this patch of land to help create that state, remembering again that the Arabs were being given 500 times more. Just a small patch for the Jews. Who would object!?
- No 5. None of this land to be taken over by anu other power. Not Britain. Not US. Not any Arab state such as Egypt. Not France (Golan) etc etc. This was the land for the Jewish Homeland. THERE WAS NO PALESTINIAN PEOPLE MENTIONED AND FOR A GOOD REASON…THERE WAS NO PALESTINIAN PEOPLE FULL STOP. A later anti-Semitic invention.
When one examines the writings of one George Galloway who sent his message of support to the Irish antisemites of the Irish ISM as they trailed their anti-Semitic coat tails around the beautiful and historical streets of Fair Dublin one sees a total absence of this history.
With Galloway there is no empathy with this ancient and most oppressed of all people, the Jews.
Should Galloway as a socialist not be celebrating that after 2000 years the Jews had a Homeland offered to them by Balfour and the League of Nations, not forgetting Mr Galloway sir that the Arabs were given a fully 500 times more land on which to build their many states, some say as many as 22 states.
As a socialist Galloway. But you see in reality Galloway is THAT KIND OF SOCIALIST ISN’T HE?!
