IT'S ALRIGHT, I'M ONLY DOING IT FOR THE MONEY
DO I LOOK RIDICULOUS IN THIS?
YES EFFENDI, BUT IT IS THE WILL OF ALLAH,
PEACE AND BLESSINGS BE UPON HIS NAME.

A message from George Galloway.
"The great Egyptian people have spoken. Egypt is back and the winds of change are blowing through the Middle East and beyond, threatening to knock down the imperial architecture that has robbed the people of the region for so long.
"And chief among the outstanding injustices from the colonial epoch is Palestine. Now the struggle for a free and dignified Palestine takes place in the epic battle for a new Middle East and wider Muslim world that meets the hopes of its people.
"Viva Palestina Arabia gathered together academics, politicians and activists last year in the Bekaa Valley in our first Summer University of Palestine to discuss and coordinate the struggle for Palestinian rights.
"Now, after the heroic Egyptian revolution has overthrown the pharaoh Mubarak, this year's Summer University has been reorganised to address the questions thrown up by the extraordinary events in Tunisia and Egypt, which are now rolling through the region.
"Book your time off work or college now - 23 to 30 July, just before Ramadan. The university will be in Beirut, upgraded and bigger than last year. It will again have world renowned speakers such as Norman Finkelstein and Ghada Karmi, who spoke last year. Booking details and the first tranche of speakers will be announced next week. This advance notice is to ensure that if you are making plans for summer now, you know to be in Beirut from the 23 July."
The New Middle East
people power, democracy and Palestine

advance notice - booking opens at end of next week
It is, to me, utterly astonishing that a socialist politician can show his face in public, after appearing on Big Brother, the premier Cruelty TeeVee show, which has so debased the public discourse. I do believe there is nothing that these people won't do for money. Fuck Galloway, he talks a good talk, sometimes, like Sheridan but every picture tells a story. If, in May, Glasgow elects this bloated, primping, narcissitic hypocrite, well, they will richly deserve him. Having Galloway shitting in their faces will be a bit of a novelty, but not much
