George Galloway Sues Bernie Farber ADL Canadian Jewish Lobby

Galloway going to get Jason Kenney and Bernie Farber (head of Canada's Jewish Lobby who got Kenney to ban George) in court for defamation. If I were Bernie and Jason, I'd pay a visit to youtube and refer to when Galloway took on the US congress. Be afraid, be very afraid LOL

All I can say is GO GEORGE!! The only person with enough "Chutzpah" to take them on. Too bad the American President won't do the same and defend his own appointments from the Zionists who run American foreign policy and politics. I hope George drags their sorry arses through a long drawn out trial so the world can see how evil they are.

British MP to sue for defamation after being barred from Canada

British MP George Galloway, an outspoken supporter of the Palestinian cause who was barred last month from entering Canada for a speaking tour, says he plans to sue the head of the Canadian Jewish Congress and CTV for defamation.

Speaking to an audience in Ottawa through a video internet connection from New York, Galloway said Thursday he will fight for his reputation, but did not say specifically how he had been defamed.

“I have instructed my lawyers in Canada to bring an action for defamation against Bernie Farber, the CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress, and CTV, for comments he made that they allowed him to make,” he said.

“I am not a terrorist. I am not a threat to Canada’s national security.”

He said he will sue if he doesn't receive an apology, reimbursement for administrative costs and payment for damages.

A spokesman later said Galloway plans similar action against Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.

A spokesman for the immigration minister said the border agency made the decision that Galloway was inadmissible based on the law, not politics.

A Federal Court ruling issued March 30 upheld the CBSA decision to prohibit the MP from visiting Canada.

Supporters of the politician from Scotland — now on a speaking tour of about a dozen U.S. cities — called the decision an affront to free speech that smacked of political interference by the Conservative government.

MP says his audiences are larger now

In his speech by video to hundreds of people who filled a community theatre in Ottawa, Galloway said efforts to ban him from speaking in Canada have backfired spectacularly.

"Far more people have come to these rallies than would otherwise have done," he said.
