Who is more unwelcome than a rabid Islamist? George Galloway.

Egypt welcomes a dangerous anti-Western Imam who was deported from France:

PARIS — France on Thursday deported to Egypt a radical imam who for months had been inciting followers in Paris area mosques to rise up against the West, the government said.

Described as dangerous, Ali Ibrahim Al-Sudani was detained and sent back to Egypt under an emergency deportation order, Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said in a statement.

But not even Egypt is prepared to put up with George Galloway:

George Galloway deported from Egypt.

George Galloway was deported from Cairo on Friday despite wanting to return to Gaza to help members of a humanitarian convoy who have reportedly been arrested, a spokeswoman for the convoy said.

Plain clothes police officers bundled the Respect MP on to a plane bound for London, said a spokeswoman for the Viva Palestina convoy.

This goes to show that even Egypt sets some limits on whom they will allow to enter their country; George Galloway wasn’t even allowed into Canada – not even if he were confined to Brantford.



  1. why Galloway was deported? Look before you leap!
    I guess everyone in the cluster of oppressors ( Egypt, Saudi, USA, Uk,Israel and sometimes France ) is very worried that Gazans will NOT evaporate in thin air and that the world might wake up to protest the ruthless sanctions on civilians for no good reasons.
    I support Galloway at least for this time. He’s brave !

  2. Duniya,
    (I was under the impression that the people in Gaza were Palestinian. Or is there now a distinction because they are represented by Hammas?)
    You will wait a very long time for Palestinian relief if you place your hopes on the likes of Galloway.
