Daniel Taub, the ambassador of Israel to Britain visited Bradford following the comments made by the West MP of Bradford, George Galloway declaring that the constituency is an Israel free zone.
According to the report issued by Telegraph & Argus, Daniel Taub said he was visiting because he had received an invitation from the community and that during his stay, he was scheduled to hold meetings with councillors and leaders of faith.
The invitation was sparked by the comments that the city should be Israel free and there should be no goods, educations, or tourists from Israel in the city. Daniel Taub mentions that his observation of Bradford is that it is a city that has different attitudes from that which is promoted by George Galloway.
The city is a model of how people of all backgrounds and faith can live together. His sense from the short visit is that the real voice of Bradford is not that of exclusion from George Galloway but rather a voice of inclusion.
The British police have launched investigation against George Galloway for the speech that raised an outcry on social media as soon as it was posted online. In his speech, George Galloway declared that Bradford rejects the illegal, savage, and barbarous state of Israel. Daniel Taub’s message to Galloway is that the real conflict is not between Shia and Sunni but rather between the past and the future or rather the right and the left. Read more: Daniel Taub | About

The visit of Daniel Taub was arranged with tight security as he affirmed that George Galloway’s remarks are not a true representation of the views of the people of Bradford. Pro-Israel activists also released a video to counter the comments of George Galloway.
