“If there has been use of chemical weapons,
it was Al-Qaeda,” Galloway said. “Who gave al-Qaida chemical weapons? Here’s my
theory: Israel gave them the chemical weapons.”
Respect Party MP for Bradford West, in February stormed out of a debate at
Oxford University after learning that his opponent was an Israeli citizen.
Consistently outspoken in his views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in
2009 Galloway received a Palestinian passport from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.
