Anti Fascism

A catalog of indecency

Christopher Hitchens on Galloway’s recent half-arsed, cowardly, psuedo-fatwa against Tony Blair.

So, here is what it comes down to. George Galloway says that the murder of an elected prime minister would be “morally justifiable.” He is not brave enough to call for it, but he does preapprove it. He finds room for criticism of the murder only because it might occasion a backlash. And he then tries to hide behind the skirts of a woman who he has just told us ought in all justice to be a widow! That he does this by deliberately misquoting her is a mere coda to an almost incredible catalog of indecency.
