George Galloway Kept Out of the U.S.

December 15, 2010

According to a report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Viva Palestina leader and former British MP George Galloway has been denied entry to the United States. He was told by airline officials that there was a problem with his visa. Galloway was slated to speak at fundraisers for the Muslim Legal Fund of America in five America cities.

The Investigative Project writes that he spoke via video linkup to audiences in Louisiana and San Diego and told the Louisiana gathering that he was "unsure whether his denial was the result of a bureaucratic mistake or political reasons". http://www.investigativeproject.org/blog/2010/12/galloway-kept-out-of-us

On a previous trip to the U.S. in 2009 Galloway was videotaped fundraising for Hamas at the Islamic Society of Central Florida together with Mahdi Bray of the Muslim American Society which federal prosecutors identified as "the over arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America".

Galloway and the Viva Palestina convoys have delivered millions of dollars to Hamas officials.http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/4678
