George Galloway sacked from radio station over allegedly ‘anti-semitic’ tweet

United Kingdom (QNN)- The former British MP George Galloway posted on the social media site on Saturday that he has been sacked by talkRADIO after sending an allegedly anti-Semitic tweet.

Galloway has been sacked from the radio station with immediate effect, after he said Liverpool’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final meant there would be “no Israel flags on the cup”.

The north London club, which has a strong association with Israel lobby, had called for him to be sacked, saying: “It’s astounding in this day and age to read such blatant antisemitism published on a social platform by someone who is still afforded air time on a radio station on which he has previously broken broadcast impartiality rules.”

On Monday, the radio station said it had terminated his weekly show.

Mr Galloway hit back at his former employer, tweeting: “See you in Court guys.”

“I’ve been given a Red Card from @talkRADIO for ‘over-celebrating’ Liverpool famous victory over Spurs. Not sure it’s the wisest move Mr Murdoch’s team ever made given the history and all”, he added.

TalkRadio is owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, whor is a strong supporter of Israel and its policies.

Israel’s lobby has been accused of weaponizing anti-semitism and using it to punish anyone, who dares to criticize Israel’s practices and occupation, which stand against international law.
