Crashing Galloway’s York party

Pro-Israel suppporters to attend speech in disguise

by

Fomer British MP George Galloway kicks off his cross-country speaking tour at York University this evening. Galloway was famously denied entry into Canada last year because he had supported Hamas and other groups that the Canadian government considers to be terrorist organizations. Federal Court ruled last month that Galloway is in fact allowed in the country.

Pro-Israel critics of Galloway’s have been organizing to attend his York talk while disguised as left-wing activists, in what the National Post terms “a bizarro world in which Zionists pose as Palestinians to shout down a bearded Scot.”

In an email obtained by the Post, Jewish Tribune freelance reporter Joanne Hill, encourages participants to dress up.  “If they do not know your face, wear a keffiyeh or hijab or hippy-type clothing (blue jeans, Birkenstock sandals with socks, hand-woven Guatemalan man-purses, long scarves on men, etc.)” she wrote.  “If I could, I would pretend to be a confused pro-Palestinian lefty.”
