The Muppetness of George Galloway

From the BBC

In the interview, former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan asked: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber, if there were no other casualties, be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

The Respect MP replies: "Yes it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it, but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7.

But wait there is more

He was also asked whether he would alert the authorities if he knew Mr Blair was to be assassinated by Iraqis.

Mr Galloway replied: "My goodness this is a moral maze.

"Yes I would, because such an operation would be counterproductive because it would just generate a new wave of anti-Muslim, anti-Arab sentiment whipped up by the press.

"It would lead to new draconian anti-terror laws, and would probably strengthen the resolve of the British and American services in Iraq rather than weaken it. So yes, I would inform the authorities."

So he would not inform the police as it would create ">a new wave of anti-Muslim, anti-Arab sentiment" not because he is Anti-War and thus I am guessing Anti-Murder. Does this means he supports the Death Penalty?

He is an awful bloody man. A good question would be - if you knew that gorgeous George was about to be targetted by terrorists, would you alert the authorites. That would be a moral maze...
