Police in London have named the 39-year-old assailant of British Member of Parliament George Galloway and charged him assault causing bodily harm. The 39-year-old has been identified as Neil Masterson, of 13 Johnson House in Campden Hill. He is charged with assaulting and beating both Galloway and a bystander who tried to intervene to prevent the assault.

Galloway suffered severe bruises to his face as well as a suspected rib and jaw fracture. The assault occurred on Friday evening in the West London suburb of Notting Hill where the Respect Party MP was posing for photographs with supporters. Masterson shouting about the Holocaust assaulted Galloway and caused him severe injuries. He was rushed to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington (West London) where after receiving emergency treatment, the Member of Parliament for Bradford West was released early today. The pro-Israel Zionist assailant Masterson is to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates Court on September 1.

While the zionists slaughter innocent Palestinians in Gaza and elsewhere in Palestine, their supporters assault people that dare speak out against such crimes. Galloway is an outspoken critic of Israeli policies and in a speech in Leeds on August 2, he declared his constituency in Bradford West to be an “Israeli-free zone.” He said he did not want any Israeli goods or services in his constituency or any academics coming to universities and colleges in the area. He also said, if any Israeli tourists planned to come to Bradford, they were not welcome. Galloway made the remarks in the context of Israel’s genocide of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip as well as its prolonged illegal occupation of Palestine.

The Respect MP has been a staunch critic of western wars against other primarily Muslim countries. And since the Zionist regime is in the forefront of such attacks, he has openly criticized its policies. His criticism has riled the zionists and their thuggish supporters. The assault on Galloway, though the most extreme is not unique. Zionist thugs have assaulted peaceful pro-Palestinian protesters in Paris as well as Toronto.

In Paris, they came out with metal bars and chains to attack a pro-Palestinian rally. Instead of preventing the Zionist criminals from attacking peaceful protesters, the French government imposed a ban on pro-Palestinian rallies. The French peace activists refused to be intimidated by such tactics and challenge the regime openly.

In Toronto, members of the Jewish Defence (sic) League (JDL), an organization that has been declared a terrorist group in the US but operates freely in Canada, has on three separate occasions assault pro-Palestinian protesters. On July 6, JDL gangsters assaulted Palestine House in Mississauga, a city west of Toronto. On July 26, a Muslim sister and her friend were assaulted near Queen’s Park. The two were left behind from the huge Quds Day Rally. Toronto Police have identified and laid charges against three JDL thugs. The assailant in the third assault on July 27 has not been charged.

Unless these criminals are charged and prosecuted for hate crimes, they will continue their vicious assault and may even cause deaths of law-abiding citizens. Terrorism runs in their blood as the latest assault on Galloway shows.
