When the cat's away

A few days ago, George Galloway, the controversial, anti—Israel member of the British Parliament, raised money for a pro Arab charity by pretending to lick milk from the hand of an actress on television. (And here you thought British politicians were so—o—o serious and industrious compared to the antics of their American counterparts!)

He was criticized for his behavior; his meowing focused attention on the dubious nature of the charity itself, which has been characterized by George Bush as a terrorist organization.  The supporting mice of the charity have rejected this notion, once again playing victim.    

Ibrahim Hewitt, the chairman of Interpal, said: "It is a matter of record that whenever allegations of illegal activity have been made in the past and then subjected to objective scrutiny, Interpal has invariably been given a clean bill of health.

"Interpal is a British charity and operates in accordance with English Law under the supervision of the Charity Commission, which means that aid is given to beneficiaries purely on the basis of need, not political or religious affiliation.

"Regrettably, there are many who want to stop the little charitable support we give from actually getting to needy Palestinians. We believe we are targets of the Israeli and US governments purely because we are a Muslim—run charity."

The catty Galloway defended  the charity

The anti—war MP boasted of his intention to help Interpal when he entered the house saying "many will eat in the Gaza Strip because I tried". He said of Interpal: "They don't get many opportunities to raise serious amounts of money."

Naturally the Gaza residents don't have an opportunity to eat or raise money through their own labor because their leaders, plus their fellow wealthy Moslem co religionists, with their consent, encourage them to hate Israel, to brutally oppose it while brutally slaughtering each other also.
