I am so proud of this young man: Zionism is NOT RACISM: MR GALLOWAY IS A RACIST ANTISEMITE: I support Israel as I am Jewish and that’s not going to change: ever. I have been threatened, followed, only because I am Jewish and some think an easy target as a woman: bullies are cowards, afraid of truth and any difference of opinion. Israel stands alone among enemies: this is not paranoia, this is reality of daily threats, violence and unjust hate-mongering.

If anybody doesn't know, Galloway's constituency, Bradford, is heavily Muslim.
…. and the supposedly brights mind in the UK sat for an hour and listened to Galloway ?? well, well, well …….. the country is really falling apart

The British joke about Jews is: "One should not hate Jews …… more than necessary." Let's face it folks, the British are (yes, with exceptions) some of the biggest anti-Semites on the planet. Don't believe it? Consider their actions over the last century. They reneged on the Balfour Declaration by giving 70% of Palestine to create Jordan – but refusing to give any land to the Jews to create a Jewish state, then issued White Papers to prevent Jews from immigrating to Palestine despite Hitler's threats against the Jewish people, refused to bomb rail lines or death camps during the Holocaust, then shamefully put survivors in DP camps after the war, then embargoed and confiscated weapons needed by Jews to defend themselves from the Arab states arrayed to annihilate Israel and drive the Jews into the sea, allowed active duty British Generals to serve as the senior commanders of the Jordanian Army when the Arabs attacked Israel in 1948 (yes, it's true, you can look it up), was one of only 2 countries in the world to recognize Jordan's annexation of the West Bank, and have continued their proud tradition of hatred towards Jews in the persona of such leading British citizens like Galloway, Catherine Ashton, Roger Waters, etc., who are embraced by such esteemed British institutions as Oxford. As far as I'm concerned, Israel and Jews in general should publically call the Brits (like this young man) every time they engage in anti-Semetic behavior.
Sadly, antisemitism is rampant in Great Britain. We need to open our mouths and encourage our friends to join us in boycotting ignorants such as Roger Waters, Stephen Hawkings (who refuses to return the Intel chip that runs his chair to Israel, where it was invented) and the likes of Galloway. Only then, when they are discredited from their professions, will we get our point across.
