George Galloway blames Israel for the use of chemical weapons in Syria

Say this for George Galloway: every time you think he cannot sink any lower he finds new ways to surprise you. His latest contribution to Press TV, Iran’s propaganda station, speaks for itself. Parody is pointless.

[Alt-Text]


Given his history and his paymasters, we would expect him to defend the Assad regime in Syria. Even so, under-estimating his ability to sniff out the true villains is never sensible. Here’s his “analysis” of the use of chemical weapons in Syria:

“If there’s been any use of nerve gas it’s the rebels that used it.

[…] If there has been a use of chemical weapons it was al-Qaeda who used chemical weapons. Who gave al-Qaeda chemical weapons? Here’s my theory: Israel gave them the chemical weapons so that they would use them so that they would bring the international community into the final destruction of Syria.

But it’s not going to happen, the west is not going to be able to destroy Syria. The Syrian people have resisted. The tide has turned. And now it is the Americans who are looking for negotiations and asking President Putin to get them off the hook their own foolishness has put them on in the first place.”

Perhaps in a better world the people of Bradford West might resign their right to elect a member of parliament at the next election. A kind of penance for past sins, if you like.

    Galloway saluted Saddam Hussein who butchered 300,000 Iraqi Moslems. Galloway can be seen on YouTube embracing Sadaam’s rapist sons.
    Galloway supported Susan’s butchering leader Bashar who slaughtered 400,000 men women and children in Darfur for the crime of being black.
    Galloway supported the killer and rapist Gaddafi.
    Galloway acts a the Goebbels for islamofascist Iran, which stones women to death, hangs Gays, persecutes Christians and Jews.
    Galloway is proud to have received awards from the racist apartheid regime in Pakistan.
    Galloway supports Article 7 of the Hamas Charter which calls for all Jews to be killed.
    Galloway supports Assad who gasses his own citizens.
    Galloway is islamofascist scum.

    Alex Massie– you are a waste of oxygen.

    Do you really think Assad will use chemical weapons, the only thing which will guarantee the US and UK’s military intervention against him? What’s more his army has all but defeated the militants, those ‘terrorists’ on the ground- why on earth would he use chemical weapons now and undo all the hard work in one fell swoop?

    Make no mistake, I’m no fan of Assad but to believe that it was he who ordered chemical attacks is sheer, utter STUPIDITY.

    So if Assad couldn’t have been responsible then who you might ask? I don’t think it takes the intellect of a genius to work out that it must have been his enemies, ie the rebels. Now who supports these rebels? If you don’t know the answer to this question then I suggest you throw yourself over the white cliffs of Dover.

    I’ll give you the answer- it’s the Americans, the British, the Israelis, the Saudis. And I bet you even you knew this. Hence what Mr Galloway is saying makes perfect sense.

    So my question to you is: are you an imbecile? Or are you in the pay of the Rothschilds? (Not me, I’m just a lowly little journo!! I hear you cry).

    A pathetic waste of oxygen.

    • Coleridge1

      This comment demonstrates that anti-Semitic bigotry isn’t confined to George Galloway and his Iranian paymasters. The only explanation for arriving at the conclusion that Jews are/might be responsible for Moslems gassing Moslems – is Jew-hatred.

  • mollysdad

    For George Galloway (peace be upon him) the Jews are responsible for everything.
    Don’t miss next week’s exciting episode of “Hitler Was Right” here on Press TV.

  • manonthebus

    He is a loony, isn’t he? And to think people on this comment page are taking his rubbish seriously.

  • WAKEUP

    These are just more Zionist wars by Zionist western governments. David Cameron Azkenazi Jew, Hague Askenaizi Jewish ancestry. Most people are ignorant that most of their powerful politicians have Jewish ancestry and are self proclaimed Zionists. Stop supporting Zionism, Zionism is to blame for both world wars. Hundreds of millions have suffered because of these Jewish ideology’s like communism from the soviets to the chinese.

    • Ridcully

      Don’t you just love it when the “I’m not anti-semitic!” mask slips?

    • Coleridge1

      Hey mongo you forgot to mention that the Jews bombed Pearl Harbour! This is what happens to people exposed to Galloway.

  • WAKEUP

    Where would the rebels get gas from? we know for a fact the west, America/Israel and some European countries arm and train these terrorist rebels. I thought the west was against terrorism yet we’re funding it! oh and blah blah anti semitsm, it’s not the first time Israel has used gas on people.

    • GIVVO6_B

      The West and especially America are the biggest sponsors of terrorism on earth. They even armed and financed Al Qaeda. They support Jundulla and the MKO in their attacks on Iran. They sponsored the Contras when they murdered 17,000 Nicaraguan farmers. They train torturers and death squad leaders at Fort Benning in Georgia.

  • Fadi

    What an idiot. He has lost all respect I had once for him. Illusion…he making up facts as he goes…

  • Charles Smyth

    The August 21, 2013 poison gas attack was the work of Syrian army’s 4th Division’s 155th Brigade, under the command of General Maher Assad. With regard to Israel: Hezbollah’s commander-in-chief, Hassan Nasrallah, instigated the rocket attack on Israel, in response to which, Israel retaliated with a precision air strike on a terrorist stronghold, in Lebanon. In coordination with Nasrallah’s Hezbollah, Damascus and Tehran, detonated two car bombs outside Sunni mosques in Tripoli, Lebanon. This caused the deaths of 42 people and injured another 500. In combination, these actions are a warning from the triple-alliance of Hezbollah, Damascus and Tehran about what to expect, as retribution for foreign intervention in the Syrian conflict.

    • GIVVO6_B

      You have absolutely no evidence for an attack from the Syrian military. Israel wants the West to attack Syria and the politicians even admit that all their so-called intelligence comes from Tel Aviv.
      Hezbollah only ever acted in self defence and to removed invaders from Lebanon. Over the years the Zionists have continually lied about Hezbollah and even accused them of blowing up a synagogue in Argentina, which was proved to be just another lie.
      The Zionists were given a bloody good hiding by Hezbollah twice when they showed up to be a nuisance to Lebanon in 2000 and 2006.

      • Charles Smyth

        This line of revisionist vainglory that you peddle, may play well to the suicidal lunatics of the Street. The reality is that the Syrian military carried out the attack. Israel could easily snuff Hezbollah out in an afternoon, but that would conflict with the US’ position, which is that the US is an ally of everybody in the region, and insists upon being the world’s human shield. Syria is a distraction, and is no concern of Israel, so long as the conflict remains beyond the borders of Israel. However, should it not, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commented that what is happening in Syria simply demonstrates what will happen if Iran gets even deadlier weapons. Israel’s finger is on the pulse of the situation in Syria and – if need be – its finger would move to the trigger.

        • GIVVO6_B

          You have no proof of what you say. Just as Obama wants to attack Syria before the UN inspectors have reported and ignores all the evidence presented by Russia to both the US and the UN.
          Israel is behind the whole idea of a murderous attack on Syria and has already carried out 3 air raids in support of Al Nusra, the Al Qaeda affiliate.
          The only things to be snuffed out in 2006 in Lebanon were Israel’s dreams of stealing Lebanese water as well as those 10th rate Israeli tanks that were destroyed and turned to shards. Israel ran away and sowed the whole of South Lebanon with cluster bombs meaning to kill as many farmers and their children that they could. Israel just ran away the same as they did in 2000.

      • Coleridge1

        ‘zionists were given a bloody good hiding by Hezbollah ..in 2000 and 2006’. Funny I seem to remember all of hezbollah’s long range missiles being taken out in the first 24 hours of the conflict. Iremember south Beirut where your islamoNazi Hezbollah friends live being totally destroyed. I remember that 35% of all Hezbollah terrorists being either killed or wounded. I also remember how the Moslems in the ‘stop the war coalition’ were demonstrating in favour of a cease fire because their islamoNazi friends were getting pounded.
        Some victory for Hezbollah?

    Glad to see GG is aware of the reality of ‘False Flag’ attacks; pity he jumps to the wrong conclusion re the likely supplier of the CW’s. Just as he seems unable to fathom that OBL had nothing to do with 9/11.
    The following appeared in the UK ‘Mail Online’ on Tuesday January 29th 2013, but was later removed:
    ‘A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme ‘approved by Washington’ is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria
    to use chemical weapons….’ It reads: ‘Phil… We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved byWashington. ‘We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have. ‘They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record. ‘Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion? ‘Kind regards, David.’ The emails were released by a Malaysian hacker who also obtained senior executives resumés and copies of passports via an unprotected company server, according to Cyber War News. Dave Goulding’s Linkedin profile lists him as Business Development Director at Britam Defence Ltd in Security and Investigations. So Israel is way down the list of likely suppliers…

    • David Lindsay

      Really? He topped the poll in every ward, including the 90 per cent white ones. Of course, you could still be right.

    • GIVVO6_B

      The people who vote for him are not Nazis as you are obviously trying to imply. It is the Zionists who are the Nazis and they are also liars when it comes to denying their crimes. They attack civilians under an illegal siege using illegal weapons like phosphorus bombs, dime bombs and cluster bombs. They attack and kill aid workers. They continually ethnic cleanse the West Bank and East Jerusalem to make room (Lebensraum) for their own co-religionists. They frequently attack other countries and have no regard for international law nor for all four Geneva Conventions.

        Israel is just a mass murdering entity that keeps killing civilians and has sited itself on stolen Palestinian land. The only thing right about them is their political stance, which is somewhere between Nazism and Fascism.

        • Icebow

          May you meet Mossad on a dark night.

    Way to go, George. Interesting theory. The alternative media is screaming “false flag”. Those wonderful people that told you Saddam didn`t have WMDs. While the MSM told you he did.
    Killing thousands of innocent civilians in a false flag attack… 9/11 strike a chord?

  • Jackthesmilingblack

    Remember when George sued the donkey off the Daily Telegraph when it accused him of accepting payment from Saddam Hussain? And the Christian Science Monitor had to settle out of court for a “significant sum”?

      • Jackthesmilingblack

        Thanks, I think. Essentially you’re saying that religion is not an essentially concomitant of ethical behavior. In fact one might go further and claim that religion is in fact running interference. Check out the crimes against humanity documented in the Jewish Book of Fairy Stories.
        To quote, “your own people” presumably implies British. Although as the decades pass, I have less and less in common with “stay at home” Brits. Nevertheless, once a Brit, always a Brit. At last this is no longer challenged, despite the ravings of that ultranationalist lunatic Jock MacDonald (Karla`s man). Remember him, the nutter the Spectator keeps around for laughs, mindless that the hectoring, ridicule and abuse he receives may well exacerbate his already serious mental health issues.
        Definition of a Brit: Make at least one spelling error per sentence. So you’re definitely one of us, paulus.

  • Tom Peters

    George ‘Meow’ is a left wing extremist. Galloway seems to blame everything on Israel. A state that he doesn’t recognize, who’s citizens he won’t represent or debate with, and has openly called for the destruction of the Jewish state, and replaced by a bi national one, which will very quickly turn into an Islamic one. He also works for Iranian propaganda TV station, Press TV.

    Fuck Galloway, the anti British, anti western closet Muslim s.o.b.

    • Jackthesmilingblack

      On the Spectator, to avoid being deleted or even banned, you have to come across as an narrow-minded, ultranationalist, xenophobic, racist bigot. Then you can get away with almost anything, even obscenities.

      • Icebow

        Something seems to go wrong sometimes, even with regard to blandest of political flavours.
        By the way, ‘xenophobic, racist bigot’ may not quite qualify as tautology, but it comes perilously close to pleonasm (under which, of course, tautology may regarded being subsumed).
        Being a ‘xenophobic, racist bigot’ isn’t necessarily incompatible with being broad-minded, any more than being a Leftist academic is incompatible with being narrow-minded. It rather depends on the mind.

        • GIVVO6_B

          Th Zionists are “xenophobic racist bigots” as they ethnically cleansed the owners of Palestine to steal their land and refuse to allow them to return to their homes as required by UN resolutions.

    • GIVVO6_B

      Galloway merely exposes the fact that Israel is just a racist entity that has situated itself on stolen Palestinian land. It did not exist before 1948. Galloway also exposes their double dealing and double standard. Their state was founded by terrorism and the ethnic cleansing of 700,000 people. If one man and one vote was good enough to remove racist South Africa it is good enough to remove racist Israel.

      • ganef_returns

        A newcomer to these posts, or merely a new name for an old bigot racist. Of course Israel did not exist before 1948. Pakistan did not exist before 1947. The rest of your posting is pure drivel with made up numbers.

        In Israel it is one man, one vote and has been that way since 1948. Jew, Muslim, Christian, atheist, whatever. If you are a citizen you have a vote. If you choose not to vote, with our system of seat allocation in the Knesset that is your problem too. As for ethnic cleansing, 20% of the population are Arabs.

        Galloway has only a single standard, its called anti-Semitism.

        • GIVVO6_B

          Israel is an apartheid racist state sitting on land stolen from Palestinians by armed European and American gangsters. In 1948 700,000 people were ethnically cleansed from the land now misnamed as Israel.
          I think you are just an anti-Arab racist. Which means you are an anti-Semite.
          If it is OK for Jews to ethnically cleanse Arabs, By your logic it would be equally OK for Arabs to ethnically cleanse Jews from the land they stole from the Arabs.

          • ganef_returns

            The tone of your posting indicates that it is impossible to have a sensible discussion with you. You call me an anti-Semite (look up the dictionary definition, Palestinians are not of Semitic origin, but Saudi) yet I am an Israeli Jew and an atheist. If the Arabs have been ethnically cleansed, how is it that more than 1.25M still live here?

            Like it, or not, Israel is a sovereign state and a full member of the UN. Consider the votes for my posting, 20-1 as against those given to your response, 0-4. Readers show who they prefer to believe.

            • GIVVO6_B

              You obvious are a bigot and support the inhuman treatment of Arabs and the theft of Palestine. Israel has merely wiped Palestine off the map and you support that. Who cares about the votes of hasbarats and other assorted Zio-Nazis?. They don’t bother me one bit.

              • ganef_returns

                “inhuman treatment of Arabs”

                Compare and contrast Syria, Egypt (or don’t you read the news?) and all other Islamic countries. At least the Arabs living in Israel are free to practice their religion and can vote as equals.

                I suggest you watch the TV programme on BBC2 on Sundays to see that Jews have lived here in (now) Israel for thousands of years. Apart from the two mosques built on the ruins of the second temple destroyed 2,000 years ago by the Romans, name ONE Muslim archaeological site in Israel or one reference to Jerusalem in the Quran?

                I suggest you come and se for yourself rather than quoting other sources.

                • GIVVO6_B

                  Now you really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Your arguments are just ridiculous. Just because a few Jews lived in Palestine in the last 2000 years you think that the Jews from Europe and America have the moral right to steal all the land that belonged to Christians and Muslims. I think you are in urgent need of a brain transplant.
                  Just face the fact that you are motivated by racism and malevolence against non-Jews!

            • GIVVO6_B

              Zionism is not only stupidity, it is entirely in the spirit of fascism and racism. It is about the continual persecution of Palestinians and the the theft of their land. It is also about stealing land from other countries like Syria and Lebanon.
              Whining about the holocaust is no longer an excuse for Zionists to get away with behaving like Nazis.

      • Icebow

        So when Israel is mentioned in the Bible, is that just a misprint?

        • johnslattery

          It’s completely irrelevant what the bible says.
          Lancashire was part of Wales around the year 0000, as hill names like Pendle Hill remind us, and much of northwest England was Celtic-speaking. You think the Gwynedd Welsh have a claim on modern Manchester because of that?

          Israel is indeed occupied land, created by outsiders by force or the threat of force, though the creation of Israel in this way is nothing unusual–Stalin too dispossessed and relocated numerous peoples in the Soviet Union, for example.

          • Icebow

            Somehow, I don’t suppose we’d ever be seeing eye-to-eye. Given the nature of your post (to allude to someone or other), I’d rather play chess with a pigeon than have a serious discussion with you (no offence meant). Not that I play chess.

            *Arabic doesn’t have P’s, they call it

            the Jewish rebellion. the Byzantines kept the name (obviously) and the new Arab
            Imperialists didn’t know what to do with it (because they came from outside the
            neighborhood) so they just kept the Roman name. which, by the way, is based on
            the name of “the foreigners of the Sea”, Philistines. they did the
            same with Syria, giving it the name of the Assyrian Empire which started
            further back into the mountains and not actually where Syria is today. And the

        • GIVVO6_B

          The Israel in the Bible was removed from the Middle East by the Assyrians 600 years before Christ. If you had a slight clue about the Bible you would have known this. Zionist propaganda was just an invention of criminals and who were all atheists like Theodor Herzl.

          • Icebow

            I cannot claim to be a biblical scholar, any more than you would seem to be. You actually admit that Israel pre-existed the Assyrian conquest, though that conquest was earlier than you indicate.
            Even had the Jewish people and the nation of Israel not existed in any sense before 1948, they would still be the best thing that had ever happened to the Middle East. And there would still be the question of where they came from. and/or who dreamt them up.

            ” removed from the Middle East by the Assyrians 600 years before Christ”

            So what religion was Christ, if not a Jew?

            • GIVVO6_B

              Modern Jews are merely the converts to a Religion begun at Jamnia after the destruction of the Temple. It has no similarity to the religion of Moses nor of Jesus. Just read the Book of Hebrews in the New Testament.

              Johanan ben Zakkai was a fake and so are all the Rabbis that followed him.

        • GIVVO6_B

          When Israel is mentioned in the Bible, it does not refer to East European Jews. It refers to people that were taken away by the Assyrians 2,600 years ago. These people are nothing to do with the modern fake state of Israel.

      • yuvy

        and palestine never existed, not before 1948 or after it (unless
        you going to start calling the lake district a country as well), but it does
        seem to have a real chance of doing that now because the Israelis are willing
        to let go of parts of their ancient homeland for the prospect of peace, or at
        least for not seeing Amira Lam ever again once she’s over
        the border.

        • GIVVO6_B

          Palestine has existed since the Romans. The Israelis are mainly a bunch of Khazar converts from Russia and have no business being in Palestine. The same way that Falasha converts have no business being there either.
          Palestine is mentioned continually in the last 2,000 years and is even on a tapestry in the British Parliament that is over 800 years old.
          Zionist Propaganda just changes to suit their own crimes as Ben Gurion continually said the Palestinians are the descendants of the Jews of the 1st Century. It did not stop him from ethnic cleansing them and denying their real heritage.

          • ganef_returns

            “The Israelis are mainly a bunch of Khazar converts from Russia”

            Whereas the Palestinians originate from Saudi Arabia and the current English from all over the world but, mainly, Normandy.

            • GIVVO6_B

              The Palestinians are the converts to Christianity from the Jews of Jesus’s day. Many later converted to Islam. These are facts that can be confirmed from the New Testament and the writings of the early Church fathers.

        Why are you so interested in religion? Has it got anything to do with your innate fascist bigotry.

        You are like the Zionists who will only allow their own co-religionists to go to Palestine from any part of the world whatsoever to steal more land but refuse to allow the real owners to return to their lands which were stolen by the racial fascists of Zionism.

        It is time the Zionist cut-throats were made to obey UN resolutions and all 4 Geneva Conventions.

      Israel should be blamed as it is merely a malevolent racist entity living on stolen Palestinian land. It will be a great day when the Palestinian flag begins flying from the Knesset for all the people instead of the Mogan David, which flies only for a racist gang of foreign interlopers and is just as much a badge of racism and the abuse of human rights as the swastika ever was.

            The hatred of the 700,000 Zionists armed to the teeth towards 700,000 unarmed Palestinians they attacked,massacred and ethnically cleansed is well known. So any supporter of Israel, “The Jewish State” criticizing others for racism is entirely hypocritical.

They have a system where political parties are not allowed to run for office in Israel unless they recognize the “Jewish State”. The people of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza and the Golan Heights have no political rights and the “Jewish State” just keeps stealing their land.

              I blame different people to the ones you mention. I blame the 70 million evangelical pro-Zionist morons of America and the Zionist killers for all the problems of Palestine.

        • GIVVO6_B

          Many Jews are entirely opposed to the Zionist State, but it is the Zionists who are the deniers of this fact. Just as they deny the Nakba the same way Nazis deny the holocaust.

          • TenPillocksInARoom

            Sure, Judaism and Zionism are not the same thing. Accept similarly that many Muslims would be disturbed by the disappearance of millienia-old Jewish populations from a dozen or more Middle-Eastern and north African countries, or the burning of churches in Egypt and Syria. Which is why it’s particularly infuriating when people use the word “Zionist” or “Israeli” as an innuendo for “Jewish”. If you, personally, can draw the difference more subtly, then good on you, but as for those who repeat the Protocols verbatim and substitute “Israeli” for every mention of Jewish people – actually, despite their loudly proclaimed protestations, they probably are just racists.

        I see your point.
        However, the context you quote does not support GG’s speculation that Israel supplied Al-Qaeda with chemical weapons, and even less so in light of the current developments that clearly implicate the Assad regime.
        In the end, therefore, this outdated video is still relevant.

        • pkoduah

          At the time Galloway made his remarks, the UN’s Carla del Ponte said the Israel allied rebels were using chemical weapons.

          Even the Israeli press saw Israel as the most visible “ally” of the rebels at the time due to their air strikes against the Syrian govt.

          Clearly the rebels got their chemical weapons from an ally.

          Concluding that they got their weapons from their most visible ally at the time of his remarks, who were bombing on their behalf at the time is a perfectly rational conclusion.

          There is no clear evidence Assad used chemical weapons in the latest incident. There is not even a rational motive.

          Lest we forget the lies of Iraq so soon.

          • Anat T.

            There were no lies on Iraq. Saddam Had used chemical weapons against the Kurds, undeniably, and the UN was looking for the rest unsuccessfully. The US and the UK kept looking, with good reason as said, but again unsuccessfully.
            Now, could you remind me again, where exactly did the Syrians get their chemicals?

              Lies on Iraq =
              45 minute claim

              Also the US gave Iraq military intelligence that helped them gas the Iranians, so claiming the moral high ground with regards to the chemical weapons use on the Kurds is disingenuous. At the time of the Halabjah massacre, the US falsely blamed Iran as it supported Saddam at the time.

              • Anat T.

                There was no false claim. Saddam did use chemicals on the Kurds, and must therefore have possessed them. Beside, this information came originally from the UN, not from Bush.
                As to your conspiracy theory on Iraq/Iran, I think I now understand where you come from. Total waste of time.

                • pkoduah

                  This is not my opinion. Read the article. No one is saying Saddam did not have chemical weapons when he gassed the Kurds. But the reality is he did not have them when the US and UK invaded.

                  The 45min claim was a clearly false claim.

                  You must be one of the few people left that feel the govt was honest over their case to invade Iraq.

                  WASHINGTON, June 29, 2006 – The 500 munitions discovered throughout Iraq since 2003 and discussed in a National Ground Intelligence Center report meet the criteria of weapons of mass destruction, the center’s commander said here today.

                  “These are chemical weapons as defined under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and yes … they do constitute weapons of mass destruction,” Army Col. John Chu told the House Armed Services Committee.

                  The Chemical Weapons Convention is an arms control agreement which outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. It was signed in 1993 and entered into force in 1997.

                  The munitions found contain sarin and mustard gases, Army Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said. Sarin attacks the neurological system and is potentially lethal.

                  “Mustard is a blister agent (that) actually produces burning of any area (where) an individual may come in contact with the agent,” he said. It also is potentially fatal if it gets into a person’s lungs.

                  The munitions addressed in the report were produced in the 1980s, Maples said. Badly corroded, they could not currently be used as originally intended, Chu added.”

                  There is no conspiracy theory about Iraq. The Americans lied and said Saddam was in league with Al Qaeda! The Americans ignored the fact that the weapons’ inspectors had cleared almost all WMDs from Iraq.
                  It is not a conspiracy to have heard the the moronic Rumsfeld and Cheney saying that Iraq was the hub of the center of Al Qaeda.
                  It was not a conspiracy that Colin Powell lied to the UN about Iraq. He even admitted it afterwards.

All the lies about yellow cake, all the lies about Saddam’s supposed links to Al Qaeda.
              It is easy to get those kind of chemicals and any Chemistry graduate could make the gas. It is like the gas used in March that the Russians thoroughly investigated and then made public.

            the supply or use unconventional weapons but they’re not even claiming that.

              “United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem on Friday afternoon, and admitted that his organization was biased against Israel.

              Responding to a student who said Israelis felt their country was discriminated against in the international organization, Ban confirmed that there was a biased attitude towards the Israeli people and Israeli government, stressing that it was “an unfortunate situation.”

              Ban met with the students as part of the UN Model international academic convention initiated by students at the College of Management. He told them he had come to the region for the sixth time to express his support for the renewed peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

              “I have never been this optimist,” he said, adding that the international community had never had such expectations and hope that the peace process would reach a solution.

              Addressing the attitude towards Israel, Ban said that the Jewish state was a UN member and should therefore be treated equally like all other 192 member states.”

All that is needed is the return of land to its real Palestinian owners, having a right of return as many UN resolutions require and then stage free and fair elections – one man one vote.
