Anti-Israel MP George Galloway Assaulted in London
Arutz Sheva ^ | 30/8/14 | Ari Soffer

Notorious anti-Israel British MP George Galloway was hospitalized on Saturday after being assaulted in London.

Galloway, who leads the far-left Respect Party, was posing for pictures in the UK capital when he was punched repeatedly by an attacker, who apparently "made reference to the Holocaust", a spokesperson told the media.

The precise motive is not yet clear but police say they arrested a suspect, named as 39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, for religiously-aggravated assault, as well as common assault against a man who attempted to defend the radical MP.

The suspect is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Galloway's party posted a picture of him on its Twitter account following the beating and shortly before he was admitted to hospital with bruising to his head as well as a broken jaw and ribs.

I would not be surprised if this was staged. But then again, maybe not.

No. It’ll make him feel vindicated, and his rotten party along with him. If it was staged, that was why it was staged. If it was not, it will still have the desired effect.

Since he’s one of the pieces of garbage who says the Holocaust didn’t happen, I say he was not assaulted.

Galloway, who leads the far-left Respect Party,

I guess this guy was not about to show Galloway any respect.

Those injuries would be consistent with Galloway having attempted to have non-consensual sex with a goat, who uncharacteristically put up a good fight.

Of course it could have been something else entirely. But, based on the company that Galloway keeps, the first scenario cannot be ruled out.

39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, living the dream.

There are many people out there looking forward to shaking his hand and maybe buying him a pint. He will be telling that story in pubs for years.

Best news all day. Too bad the beating wasn’t more severe. He is a despicable Nazi pig.

>> religiously-aggravated assault

Are hostile Muslims charged with the same crime classification?
