    LONDON — Killing British Prime Minister Tony Blair in a suicide bombing would be morally justified as revenge for the war in Iraq, firebrand lawmaker George Galloway has said. In a magazine interview that was widely reported yesterday, the MP for the anti-war party, Respect, was asked if it would be justifiable for a suicide bomber to blow up Blair provided there were no other casualties.Galloway told GQ magazine: “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 July 7.”He was referring to the London attacks last year, when four extremists killed 52 people and themselves by bombing the transport network.''It would be entirely logical and explicable,” the leftist lawmaker said. “And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq — as Blair did.” Galloway said he would alert the authorities if he learnt of a plot to kill the prime minister.

    Once... just once, I would like to see you post a news article that isn't about killing someone. You are just a vile individual. We aren't all ignorant, we are perfectly capable of finding these news articles on our own. And your anti-American, anti-Jewish, anti-anything you can't find in the Quran demeanor is wearysome.

    Its absolute RUBBISH - Galloway never said that at all !
    What Galloway said was that "it could be morally justified"
    He did not say that it "WOULD be morally justified"
    I'm not even going to debate the difference -
    The fact is that if you think Galloway stuffed
    the American government good and proper, and he did !
    then you will also realise that the propoganda war against
    him is very bitter. He went to Washington and they
    expected to walk all over him. The fact is he is much
    too bright for them and they intend to get him
    one way or another. Galloway is a fool in who he chooses
    to make a friend, but as a tactical intellect he would make
    mincemeat out of 999 of a 1000 people
    Why dont you get the facts first before repeating what
    deadheads print in the newspapers

    really?


    n 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.

    Thats right - if you believe the paper never altered a word
    "would" does not equal "could" in this context, and if you
    had an independent account, that is independent of the
    british and american media - you would find that his
    argument amounted to this:
    Some people consider they are at war with the west
    therefore they feel justified in seeking the death of
    leaders in the west. That argument could be morally justified
    it is a matter of whose side you take.
    He did not say he thought killing tony blair WOULD be justified
    he said others COULD justify it as a logical position
    try anything but an english speaking press
    I think when he uses the term "moral equivalence! its a giveaway
    dont you? If you dont see the point
    can I suggest you study some logic
    start with any simple study of logic and language
    its a philosophy subject you will find near the
    beginning of such a book the iexample:
    premise 1) socrates was a man
    premise 2) all men are mortal
    conclusion) socrates is mortal
    eventually you will read about moral equivalence
    there now go and read something interesting instead of
    trying to bring down a man who is trying to get a war stopped

    I do not believe he is doing any of this for muslim principles - he belives it is right
    Personally I would see the end of all religion - your gods are fake - and galloway believes that too I imagine - there is morality without a god you know!

    Assassination of political leadership is a desperate tactic that often serves as a making a martyr out of the person murdered, and emboldens the political devices of the killer.

    Also homocide bombing is not only an unrealistic way of killing a political leader, it is also a tactic to maximize civilian casualties so the whole "as long as nobody else was harmed" is counter to the very nature of blowing yourself up.

    Example?
    and one from your own opinion not your parent/guardian whatever !

    Oh I absolutely KNOW that in Britain we will see an end to religion, it has already begun.
    The Muslim way has lost the first propoganda battle by being "Seen" to have sided with a criminal mentality- whether most muslims support such a mentality - I do not know - but the religion has been seen to be compromised by politics. It is merely the fact that muslims refuse to separate shariah law from its status as a religion and thereby enters a political conversation. The British had a separation of politics from religion in the civil war over 300 years ago - and that is going to be the basis upon which government will force the muslims to accept. Do you think the ruling power has really forgotten its own history and will run away because a few people believe they have god on their side?
    Incedentally, Oliver Cromwell, during the civil war said "Both armies believe they have god on their side, and god must often wonder who is on his side"

    Now he's being coy. I'm certain that this is his way of telling us that Islam will extinguish all other beliefs and thereby vanquish the infidels.

    In other words, Hamas doctrine. You're a wolf in sheep's clothing, Catstevens. You just won't admit it to yourself.

    Cat is a DOGmatist - they all are -
    I notice that he will not defend his religion in words not used by the press - I do not even believe he is a muslim - by looking through a few of his posts he just spouts it but doesnt think it.
