That Time George Galloway Put His Arm Around (Zionist and Israeli) Uri Geller

I pride myself on knowing stuff, especially when it comes to things like antisemites and pop culture. So it came as a huge surprise to me to learn that this photo exists

and I knew nothing about it. Until today.

Here we have anti-Zionist-not-antisemite George Galloway with his arm around famous mentalist, Zionist and Israeli Jew Uri Geller. And not just any Zionist and Israeli Jew, but one who served as a paratrooper during the Six Day War.

Remember, this is the same George Galloway who refused to debate an Israeli, and declared Bradford an Israel-free zone.

Perhaps Uri telepathically made Galloway do it. Or Galloway just bent his own rules –┬áit is, after all, the same Galloway who was once spotted in an Israeli cafe.

Feel free to spread this photo far and wide – I am sure George will love that!

Update: It seems the photo may have been from Celebrity Big Brother’s Big Mouth, a discussion of Celebrity Big Brother – you know, the show on which Galloway made a bigger fool of himself than usual.
