Galloway banned from Egypt....
The Egyptians finally get it....
George Galloway has been permanently banned from Egypt after he was thrown out of the country this morning.
Cairo is accusing the British MP of incitement after his harsh criticism of the government there over delays in an aid convoy's entry into Gaza, the foreign ministry said today.
'George Galloway is considered persona non grata and will not be allowed to enter into Egypt again,' a Foreign Ministry statement said.
This morning plain clothes police officers bundled the Respect MP on to a plane bound for London, said a spokeswoman for the Viva Palestina humanitarian convoy.
Galloway had crossed the border into Egypt - but wanted to return to Gaza after new broke that members of the convoy had been arrested.
The incident began after Mr Galloway and his colleague, Ron McKay, arrived at the Rafah crossing from Gaza to Egypt.
'As soon as they emerged on to Egyptian soil, both men were forcibly pushed into a van, refused exit and told that they were leaving the country,' a spokeswoman said.
'They were then driven off in a police convoy.'
A police officer maintained security only escorted him for his own protection.
'It was to protect him from the Egyptian people's anger,' he said.
