In an interview with GQ magazine he was asked whether a suicide bomb attack on Mr Blair would “be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq”. He said it would be morally equivalent to Mr Blair “ordering” Iraqi deaths.
“Yes it would be morally justified. 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. It would be entirely logical and explicable, and morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq as Blair did.”
He was also asked whether he would alert the authorities if he knew Mr Blair was to be assassinated by Iraqis.
Mr Galloway replied: “My goodness this is a moral maze…”
