Just fancy that… “I told you so” edition.

Married three wives in “Muslim ceremonies”.

But the religion of Islam strictly forbids Muslim women marrying non-Muslim men.

So these cannot have been Muslim ceremonies, unless of course…

And that’s why George Galloway won Bradford West.

It hate to say, “I told you so!”, but…

from MailOnline

Galloway’s new Dutch bride (his fourth) is younger than his daughter. . . and his last wife had a baby four months ago

After his sensational by-election victory of last week, he might have been expected to pause for breath.

Instead, three-times-married ‘Gorgeous George’ Galloway flew to Amsterdam and took a fourth bride – a woman 30 years his junior.

The ceremony, in a hotel, happened less than 48 hours after the MP took the Labour stronghold of Bradford West with an astonishing 10,000-plus majority for his Respect party. And it was a mere four months since his third wife had given birth to a son – their second.

The fourth Mrs Galloway is a Dutch-born researcher of Indonesian extraction who took a degree in cultural anthropology at the University of Utrecht. She also studied in Amsterdam before taking a masters degree in children’s rights at Amsterdam University.

From 1979 to 1999, Mr Galloway was married to his former teenage sweetheart, Elaine Fyffe. They had a daughter, Lucy, now 29 with two children of her own.

The couple separated in 1987 but did not divorce for a further 12 years.

The politician had already taken Dr Amineh Abu-Zayyad, a Palestinian scientist, as a second wife in a Muslim ceremony in 1994. A year after his divorce from Elaine in 1999, he married Dr Abu-Zayyad in a civil ceremony.

[So he married his second wife – in a Muslim ceremony – five years before he divorced his first. So Mr Galloway is either a bigamist or a Muslim. This is probably the time of his conversion. As a bigamist he could only “remarry” in a tradition that allowed polygamy.]

By this time the Respect MP had already had a son, Zein, with his Lebanese former researcher, Rima Husseini, whom he had married in a Muslim ceremony in 2007.

  1. But surely it’s none of our business whether he’s a Muslim or not, as George so aggressively and somewhat defensively likes to remind us!

  2. It’s funny that his most recent “wifey acquisitions” be all women of a rather high intellectual status, with high academic education… What do you think ?
