The invites made were the outcomes of George Galloway’s previous statement that implied the city does not need and want Israeli services, goods, tourists, and academics.
Daniel Taub commented that the image presented by Galloway’s speech is quite different from what he has seen, since his short stay in Bradford gave him the perception that the city is all-encompassing and is not an exclusive place for a selected few like what George Galloway wants others to interpret based on his previous remarks.
He went on to say that it is essential for people who have different faiths and backgrounds to live and work together in harmony.
In Galloway’s speech he declared that Bradford does not like anything to with Israel – be it goods, services, academics or tourist.
He called the State of Israel savage, barbarous and illegal, resulting to an uproar within the social media, which motivated the British police to carry-out an investigation against West Bradford’s MP.
To explain the situation, Daniel Taub told Telegraph and Argus that when people really look at the Middle East region the battle is not really between the right and the left, nor is it between the Shia and the Sunnis; but regarding the past and future.
So, he calls for everyone not to dwell on the past but to help the people of the Middle East go forward for a more progressive future.
George Galloway had a standing past and present of being anti-Israel.
His prejudice and racism against Israelis is very pronounce when he broadcasts unfounded ideas where he accuses Israel of providing Al-Qaeda with chemical armaments, and where the Jewish state is the cause of the conflicts in Ukraine.
His statements have all been recorded although he refuses to acknowledge what he said.
According to Daniel Taub, the invitation sent by the people of Bradford is a strong indication that George Galloway does not speak for each and every one of them, which is why he went to visit the cited city.
