George Galloway: The publishing of very offensive cartoons was worse than the attacks of 9/11 and 7/7

Apparently Mr Galloway believes that if he is interviewed in far away places, this time Algeria, no one back home will pick up on the things he says. Unfortunately for him the BBC world service’s tentacles are far reaching:

Halimi: Mr Galloway! Let us deal with the core of the issue immediately. What is your personal position and that of your party towards the events and the demonstrations which have been taking place in the Muslim world against the publication of cartoons depicting the prophet?
Galloway: Personally, I condemn these barbaric and evil acts. Today, the objective of the Western states is to control the oil of the Muslims whatever the price. In fact, the cartoons published in Denmark did not surprise me because the Western states have been waging fierce attacks against Islam for years. These began by humiliation, insults and then occupation. Today they reached the point of ridiculing the prophet. This incident is worse than the 11 September attacks in the US and the 7/7 incidents in London. Therefore, today it is the right of Muslims to express their anger and to defend their right and faith

So freedom of speech, no matter how offensive, is a greater evil than the killing of several thousand people in New York, and the deaths of 50 plus people in London?

And to think I felt just ever so slightly sympathetic towards him when he was in the Big Brother house. What a fool I was, and what a tool he is.
