George Galloway Barred Entry to Canada
The outspoken British MP and famous anti-war activist George Galloway has been barred entry to Canada. The UK's Channel 4 News last night reported that "after an open letter of protest from Canada's Jewish Defense League, he's been declared inadmissable under the country's immigration act";
Galloway was scheduled to speak in Toronto, sponsored by the Coalition to Stop the War on March 30th, 2009, followed by other stops in Canada. The barring of Galloway is unprecedented. Not even Israel has barred Galloway entry into their country. The barring has generated coverage in the mainstream Canadian press, at the Ottawa Citizen, which features an article and original audio interview with Galloway, and coverage by the Israeli newspaper, Ha'aretz.
Galloway's opinion on 9/11 Truth has not been consistent, however, he did give an excellent interview to William Rodriguez in 2007 on his radio/Cable TV show, The Real Deal;
Galloway is no terrorist. He is a peace activist. This is a political smear-job, designed to curb growing public opposition to Canada's participation with NATO actions in Afghanistan, as well as pandering by the Harper government to the supporters of the JDL in Canada.
