Israeli Tourists Break George Galloway’s Bradford Ban

by | 12th, August 2014

 

WHEN George Galloway called for Bradford to be an “Israel-free zone” –  “we don’t want Israeli tourists to come to Bradford” – holidaymakers in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv fretted. What to do? Where to go now? But some had either pre-booked the trip or just decided that Galloway was an utter pillock and anywhere he was needed a bit of relief.

So. Shneur Zalman Odze and some Israeli pals made the trip to Yorkshire. Shneur says a “steady stream of people came over to wish us well and distance themselves from Galloway’s hate speech”. Shneur says Bradfordians gave their Israeli visitors a “tremendous reception”, reflecting on an “amazing afternoon” of “well wishes and interesting conversations”.
