Tim Blair is on a Roll Today!

Lots of great blogging at Tim Blair's blog.

The first story of note is about George Galloway. George Galloway was a member of the Labour Party in the UK (I am not certain if he was or is an MP) who is famously friendly with Saddam Hussein and was accused of being on Saddam's take. George sued for libel and won the case but this does not erase his ties with Middle Eastern tyranny.

Well it appears yesterday he was campaigning in a Muslim neighborhood and a group of men from an organization known as "Hizb-Ut-Tahrir" attacked him. They were intent on murdering him and:
The men said they were angry at Mr Galloway's attempt to woo Muslim voters. They said they were "setting up the gallows" for him and warned any Muslim who voted for his anti-war Respect party that they faced a "sentence of death".

Seems like Galloway's craven sucking up to Islamo-fascists has bought him nothing. In fact just the day before Tim Blair noted Galloway denouncing the Iraqi elections and government.

I highly doubt this is going to be a learning experience for Mr. Galloway. People like him have an amazing ability to blame the west for this. So I think we can expect Mr. Galloway and his ilk to refrain from criticizing Islam and to boldly attack Christians, after all Christians do not make habit of pinning notes to people's chest with the knife they just used to slash their throats with.
