(in a message to one of Assad's closest advisors)
Keep up the cheerleading for George Galloway, Cam!Galloway describes Syria as "the last castle of Arab dignity" and asks her to "convey my respect and my admiration to His Excellency the President".
Your inability to see how the endless loop of violence is self-feeding should be an Israeli domestic issue, not something Americans should be drawn into. How other Arabs treat each other doesn't impact one whit on America. How our client state Israel treats them does. That's the obvious difference.
But I also have to ask, was Christ Church College being racist or segregationist by having George Galloway represent the Palestinian side instead of a Palestinian that could also use the word "we" instead of a Brit saying they?
If George was under the impression that this would be two Brits debating the Israeli Palestinian conflict. I agree that having an Israeli debate Brit drastically alters the milieu of the debate. But I don't think George handled that properly. When that guy said that he was an Israeli he handed George a nail. Instead of driving that nail he threw it away and walked out. George should have taken this position. How can anyone deny that Israel is an aparthied state when the seperation extends from Israel to Britian and right into this very room. I want to take notice that we have an Israeli representing Israel's side in this debate. But there is no Palestinian here to represent the Palestinian side. Instead they have me a Brit representing Palestine. Don't pretend you couldn't find a Palestinian. The Palestinian diaspora has about 15,000 - 20,000 Palestinians in Britian. So is the real problem here that you have accepted this aparthied and can't have a Palestinian in the same room with an Israeli? Maybe worse a Palestinian speaking authoritativly in the same room with an Israeli. Then at the end of the debate call a press conference to expose the segregated nature of this debate. But they set a trap and he stepped in it.
