Killing Blair 'morally justified' says GallowayBy Fran Yeoman
THE assassination of Tony Blair by a suicide bomber would be morally justified as revenge for the War in Iraq, according to George Galloway.
The Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow said that such an attack would be “morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq — as Mr Blair did”. He was speaking during an interview for GQ magazine with Piers Morgan, the former Daily Mirror Editor. Morgan asked: “Would the assasination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber, if there were no other casualties, be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?”
The MP for Bethnal Green and Bow said: “I am not calling for it but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7.”
Mr Galloway is in Cuba and could not be contacted last night. A spokesman for Respect said: “What he’s saying is were something like that to happen it has to be viewed through the moral lens of occupation and resistance to occupation.”
