George Galloway is being accused of anti-Semitism after he stormed out of an Oxford University debate, telling the student speaker: “I don’t debate with Israelis.”

The Respect MP was speaking at an event organised by Christ Church college in favour of the motion “Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank”. Less than three minutes into his opponent Eylon Aslan-Levy’s speech, Galloway interrupted, asking “You said we. Are you an Israeli?”

Third year student Aslan-Levy answered “I am, yes.” Galloway promptly stood up and replied: “I don’t debate with Israelis, I’ve been misled, sorry.”

Galloway’s exit, which was met with audible gasps from the audience, was captured on film by the Oxford University paper, Cherwell. As the Bradford West representative left the room, a member of the audience can be heard shouting “racism”, to which the MP replied: “I don’t recognise Israel and I don’t debate with Israelis.”
