British Member of Parliament (MP) George Galloway accused Israel of giving Al-Qaeda
terrorists in Syria chemical weapons in a recent interview with Iranian Press TV.
“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.”
Galloway, the Respect Party MP for Bradford West, this 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.
