Domestic political violence is never an option, but it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Does this mean that Galloway is finally coming out as a Muslim? Also, if a conservative politician who was highly critical about Muslims was attacked in the same way, like say Geert Wilders, the media and talking heads would have been saying:
”Oh, I deplore the violence, but what took it so long, he sure asked for it, he surely had it coming, you can only maintain the rage for so long.”

A man has been charged with religiously aggravated assault after an attack that left outspoken MP George Galloway with a broken rib.
The Respect Party MP also suffered a badly bruised face after he was assaulted in the street by a man who appeared to have taken exception to his controversial comments about Israel.
Writing in The Mail on Sunday, the politician said he feared for his life when he was attacked in Notting Hill, West London, in broad daylight on Friday.
And he called for police protection in future.

Neil Masterson, 39, of Campden Hill, West London, will appear at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court tomorrow charged with attacking Mr Galloway and a man in his 40s who came to the MP’s aid.
Last night, it emerged that a man of the same name made threats about Mr Galloway on Facebook hours before the incident.
An account in that name carries a series of comments and abusive remarks about Muslims as well as claims that Galloway is anti-Semitic.
The account holder ‘shared’ a picture of the politician, branding him a ‘snake’ and captioned: ‘Galloway is a Hamas and IRA supporter.’
