As much as I detest most of George Galloway’s political opinions, one has to denounce him being violently attacked on the street. Get well soon George. Don’t let this inhibit your free speech in any way. BBC News – George Galloway taken to hospital after street attack.
UPDATE: The attacker has been charged with “religiously-aggravated assault”. This is strange. According to Advice Guide:
“Racially motivated attacks and religiously motivated attacks are attacks which are carried out because of someone’s racial or ethnic origin, or their religion or lack of religion.”
Does this confirm that Galloway is a Muslim and that the attacker indicated that was a factor in the attack? Or the attacker just thinks Galloway is a Muslim and said so? Or is it because the attacker mentioned the Holocaust (saying Galloway was a denier)?
