Galloway finally says it explicitly: He wants Israel to be destroyed

As far as I can tell, up until now, George Galloway has,  to Western audiences, made a pretense of saying he supports peace between Arabs and Israel - as long as there is a "right to return." Listen, for example, to his radio show aired in late 2008 where he disingenuously claims that Hamas supports the Arab peace plan.

Now, he is explicit that his idea of "peace" means that Israel no longer exists and that "Palestine" takes over all the land from the Mediterranean to the Jordan:

Transcript from MEMRI:

Following are excerpts from an interview with former British MP George Galloway, which aired on Palestine Today TV on May 24, 2011:
George Galloway: When President Obama is talking about a smaller and smaller Palestine, we have to insist that Palestine is one, from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea. 
Our next land convoy, which will arrive, God willing, in Gaza on the 27th of December this year, will be called "The Return Convoy," because we insist that Palestine is not only Gaza, the West Bank, and what they call "East Jerusalem." Palestine is the whole country and the whole people
Interviewer: The largest insurance company in the world, Lloyd's, refused to insure the ships of the second Freedom Flotilla. How will you deal with this matter, which may hinder your progress? 
George Galloway: Well, we will have no insurance, but God is great and we are doing God's work. We are not afraid of Israel. We are afraid only of God.
