George Galloway, the MP for Bradford West, England declared his intention this weekend to make Bradford an “Israel free zone”
“We have declared Bradford an Israel free zone. We don’t want any Israeli goods. We don’t want any Israeli services. We don’t want any Israeli academics, coming to the university or the college. We don’t even want any Israeli tourists to come to Bradford if any of them had thought of doing so. We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel. And you have to do the same.”
Responding to the call, Muqata Reader Mandy Blumenthal decided that her dual nationality of British and Israeli citizenship would do well to dispel Galloway’s plans.
Mandy writes: “[On] Sunday I decided to be a purist for the day. I took my Israeli passport and flag with me and drove up to Bradford. As you can see my holiday shots with locals some more friendly than others. Everybody seems to have taken my tourist day out personally. It was on Israeli news and it’s all over the UK even George Galloway himself for some reason is not very happy.”
Thank you Mandy for your support — and for Standing with Israel during this challenging time!!!
