Video: George Galloway - Hizbollah Is Not A Terrorist Organization.

One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter. "Must Watch" Video.
George Galloway takes on Sky TV!
George Galloway has spoken out in support of Lebanon, saying he believes Hizbollah is justified in defending Lebanon against Israeli attacks . The Respect MP also lambasted media coverage of the war and said the UN resolution means nothing (with regard to the current situation).

A "must watch" video. See it at:

The full link to this video and other articles by George Gallloway the Respect MP in the UK Parliament can be seen on the Respect Blog at:

P.S. Remember what Margaret Thatcher(ex UK Prime Minister) called Nelson Mandela and the ANC - a "terrorist" and a "terrorist organisation"!!
