Leftist Useful Idiot British politician George Galloway has been a faithful servant of the Islamic supremacist agenda for years now, so it was no surprise at all when reports began to circulate that he secretly converted to Islam years ago. He denies it now, but questions remain. In any case, this question is rather like that of whether or not Obama is secretly a Muslim — if he were, his policies wouldn’t be any different from what they are now, so what’s the big deal?
“George Galloway denies claims he converted to Islam,” from the Telegraph, April 26 (thanks to David):
Respect’s George Galloway today denied claims he had converted to Islam at a secret ceremony more than a decade ago.
The maverick MP took part in the “shahadah” conversion ceremony, attended by members of the Muslim Association of Great Britain, at a hotel in Kilburn, London, it was reported today.
Jemima Khan, who converted to Islam ahead of her failed marriage to cricketer Imran Khan, claimed in an article for the New Statesman she knew someone who had attended the event.
But the Bradford West MP, who has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his faith, dismissed it as “totally untrue”.
In the days ahead of his shock landslide by-election victory last month, a letter – which Mr Galloway denies being behind – went out to voters highlighting his record of support for Palestine, his work for “the freedom of Kashmir” and his abstention from alcohol.
It added: “God knows who is a Muslim. And He knows who is not. Instinctively so do you.”
Ms Khan, who interviewed the MP in his new constituency, which has a large Muslim community, starts the article: “George Galloway, MP for Bradford West, is a Muslim.
“He converted more than ten years ago in a ceremony at a hotel in Kilburn, north-west London, attended by members of the Muslim Association of Great Britain.
“Those close to him know this. The rest of the world, including his Muslim constituents, does not.”
Ms Khan tells Mr Galloway she knows someone “who attended your shahadah” and says, “so you converted?”
According to the article he replied: “I can’t answer that. God knows who is a Muslim.”…
Mr Galloway claimed today the article was littered with “deliberate falsehoods” and “schoolgirl howlers”.
In a statement he added: “The opening paragraph of Jemima Khan’s piece in the New Statesman, referring to an alleged conversion ceremony, is totally untrue.
“Moreover I told her it was fallacious when she put it to me. I have never attended any such ceremony in Kilburn, Karachi or Kathmandu.
“It is simply and categorically untrue.”
In response the New Statesman defended its interview, saying: “It is notable that Galloway does not deny being a Muslim convert — and he did not deny it when it was put to him at the time of the interview, which is on tape.
“Contrary to his press release, nor did he deny that the ceremony took place when it was put to him during the interview.”
