George Galloway boldly declared “Je ne suis pas Charlie Hebdo”

During a damning address at a freedom of speech rally in Bradford on Saturday.

The Respect MP told a crowd of protestors gathered outside Bradford City Hall that the French government should be ashamed of themselves for standing by the “racist, Islamophobic, hypocritical rag” in the wake of the attacks in Paris that killed 17 people last week.

The shootings were provoked by the printing of a front cover displaying a caricature of the Prophet Mohamed.

No person, no human being should be subjected to violence, still less death for anything that they have said, written or drawn,” he said.

“So we condemn utterly the murder of 17 people in the events in Paris. But we will not allow this Charlie Hebdo magazine to be described as a king of loveable, anarchic, fun book of cartoons.

“These are not cartoons, these are not depictions of the Prophet, these are pornographic, obscene insults to the Prophet and by extension, 1.7 billion human beings on this earth and there are limits.

“There are limits. There limits to free speech and free expression especially in France.”

Charlie Hebdo sought “to further marginalize, further alienate and further endanger exactly those parts of the community who are already alienated, already endangered,” he argued.
