George Galloway has defended his praise of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, following a recent trip to the country.
The MP for Bethnal Green said the president was a "breath of fresh air" after decades of dictatorship.
Syria has been criticised for its human rights record and been accused of links to terrorism in recent years - which the country strenuously denies.
Meanwhile, Respect - the party set up by Mr Galloway - is set to begin its annual conference.
Last year the US imposed economic sanctions on Syria over what it deemed to be support for terrorism and a failure to stop militants entering Iraq.
During his recent trip Mr Galloway hailed the Syrian president - whose regime has faced accusations over the assassination of Lebanese Premier Rafik Hariri - as the "last Arab leader".
He's just another left wing parasite who loves America when he's here and hates it when he isn't. Jealousy.

Not really, we live in a free world and people are entitled to their views. Just cause someone is anti-American doesn't mean they are jealous of America. The jealousy factor of anti-Americans doesn't make sense at all. How can you be jealous of something you dislike?
