Bradford England is No Longer an “Israel Free Zone”

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!!!

  29. Read the following, people in England and then decide!
    The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2011. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.

    THIS WAS IN A SPANISH NEWSPAPER: “EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ ” By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

    “I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz… We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed a chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

    The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

    And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

    They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

    And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

    What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .

    A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust
    from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

    It is now more than sixty years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated. ‘Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

    How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

    If our Judeo-Christian heritage is offensive to Muslims, they should pack up and move to Iran, Iraq or some other Muslim country.

  30. Steven Na says:

    George should become a human shield…and then the IDF should drop a 500 lb bomb on him. CATCH JORGE!

  33. George Galloway you are mean and you don’t speak do people . Racists go away

  34. Gerry Glazer says:

    Why haven’t we seen anything from the Royal Family condemn in the racist – Galloway and his followers?

  35. Erica Doll says:

    If your Dad was born in Gaza in ’62 then you are Egyptian, as Gaza was in ’62.

  36. Robert Smith says:

    I love this woman! Shalom! From America!

  37. very useless moron that Galloway ****

  38. Hinda Blas says:

    Why can’t the traitor to GB be sent to the gallows or better yet to Qatar to work for Al Jazeera the mouthpiece for all terrorists.

  39. Haley Chace says:

    We need a Bradford Free Zone!… Freaks and Fanatics!

  40. I thought the concept of an “Israel free zone” was absurd.

  44. Hi Sam, now you know how the Jews feel. 2900 years ago Gaza & West Bank belonged to the Jews. Unfortunately, wars are fought and a stronger country wins while the weaker country loses and then it’s inhabitants are usually forced to move. The Jews have lived for 2900 years all over the world without a homeland and they obviously came from somewhere. The Arabs on the other hand have 22 states and occupy an entire continent with the exception of the 9 miles belonging to the Jews. Why do the Arabs require more land? Why can’t the Jews have this tiny little peace of real estate bought and paid for by Abraham?

    I feel badly for you my friend because of feeling like you have no identity and in some cases people are forced from their homes. It’s wrong but it’s been happening to the Jews for centuries. Do you think you’re better or more deserving? And if you think you’re better than other people, then that’s where the REAL problem is.

    No country wants the Jews all because they’re Jews and for no other reason. Doesn’t it make sense to give them their land back so you have somewhere to banish them to?

    Well said, Harriet Roberts! In Australia we welcome all who want our freedom, so long as they unite with our culture of hard work, equality and judeo Christian ethics. Those who want to force us it submit to their culture can go back where they cams from. Don’t make Europes and England’s mistakes. Keep Australia Australian and Jews are welcome here!
