 "Galloway vs. Hitchens: Western Civilization Wins" by Cinnamon Stillwell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Galloway’s defiance in the face of the U.S. government thrilled his fans on the left, who probably didn’t much care whether or not he’d been cited six times as an oil contract beneficiary by the former Iraqi Minister of Oil.
Galloway no doubt subscribes to the view, common on the left these days, that his words and actions are never to be held accountable.
George Galloway has crossed that line on many an occasion and the fact that he’s still an MP in Britain is, in Hitchens’ parlance, a “disgrace.” The fact that he’s not in prison is, too.

Galloway, you would have this committee believe that your designated representative from the Mariam's Appeal becomes the chair of the Mariam's Appeal, was listed in Iraqi documents as obviously doing business, oil deals with Iraq, that you never had a conversation with him in 2001 or whether he was doing oil business with Iraq.
GALLOWAY: Well, the parenthesis, if the parenthesis implies--as you've been arguing all morning that it implies--that this was being signed for by Middle East Advanced Semiconductors in order to pass the money on to me, is false.

 SEIXON: With all due RESPECT, Mr. Galloway…   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Galloway, knowing full well that his website was down, told the Senate committee that he had "emblazoned" on his website that his partner in the organization had extensive business dealings with Iraq and was a donator to the campaign.
Galloway: Isn't it strange - and contrary to natural justice you might think - that I have written and e-mailed repeatedly asking for the opportunity to appear before the committee to provide evidence and rebut their assumptions and they have yet to respond, while apparently making a judgement.
The fact that Galloway and Zureikat moved their records from the UK to Iraq in 2001, and he didn't even mention this in his testimony, while still claiming that the UK Charity Commission had already researched everything, is also deceptive.

 Galloway Wary Of Staged Terror Attack As Pretext For Iran Invasion
George Galloway made worldwide headlines on May 17th when he appeared in front of a Senate committee on investigations, after its members accused him of profiteering from Saddam Hussein's regime by receiving vouchers for oil, despite the fact that such allegations against Galloway had already been proven to be based on forged documents.
Galloway turned the tables and put the entire US establishment on trial for arming Saddam, imposing genocidal sanctions which killed a million Iraqis, and then the two illegal wars which killed and maimed hundreds of thousands more.

Galloway is much better than he makes him out to be and the people of his constituency did not vote for him because he's a good showman, but because he offered a leftwing alternative to the three main parties.

 PREVIEW: Unmitigated Galloway
Galloway's name also appears in parentheses on the Zureikat papers--perhaps as an aide-memoire to those processing them--but you must keep in mind that the material does not show transfers directly to Galloway himself; only to Zureikat, his patron and partner and friend.
Given what Galloway has said at other times, in defense of Slobodan Milosevic for example, it is fair to assume that he would have taken such a position for nothing: without, in other words, the hope of remuneration.
Galloway, indeed, has arranged to be adequately uninformed about this for some time now: It is two years since he promised the BBC that he would establish and make known the facts about his Zureikat connection.

 Now, watch me debate him. - By Christopher Hitchens - Slate Magazine
Galloway publicly deplored this withdrawal, saying that Syria's presence in Lebanon was "legal," which it was not after the Taif Accords of more than a decade ago, and adding that "the beneficiary from the absence of Syria is the US and Israel."
Galloway's preferred style is that of vulgar ad hominem insult, usually uttered while a rather gaunt crew of minders stands around him.
Study the photographs of Galloway from Syrian state television, however, and you will see how unwise and incautious it is for such a hideous person to resort to personal remarks.

Galloway illustrated this by pointing out that Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, had recently been welcomed to New York City, only days after the anniversary of the massacre of Palestinian refugees at the Sabra and Shatila camps in Southern Lebanon more than two decades earlier.
