'I’ll be happy if every last organisation like Isis and Al-Qaida are left lying dead on the ground in Syria and Iraq', says George Galloway

George Galloway made his opinion known following MP Rory Stewart's comments

George Galloway has said the defeat of Isis and Al-Qaeda is vital but "not sufficient" because the ideology needs to be completely annihilated.

Our host's remarks come in the wake of an interview given by Rory Stewart, the MP for Penrith and The Border. 

The international development minister told the BBC the only real way to deal with British fighters for Islamic State was to kill them "in almost every case."

Our host made his own opinion clear: "I’ll be happy if every last Isis and Al-Qaida and the alphabet soup of like-minded organisations is left lying dead on the ground in Syria and Iraq. 

"Without a shadow of a doubt, they are a clear and present danger to the rest of us. 

"Any fighter who remains alive when the last shot has been fired in the Syria and Iraq wars and makes an attempt to come back is returning armed with the philosophy of the worst people in the world.

"I hope the Syrian army and Iraqi army and their allies can destroy every last one of them. That’s necessary, but it is not sufficient.

"These people did not emerge out of thin air. They clambered out of a swamp of bitterness and hatred which is ever deeper by the day."
