On the heels of Yvonne Ridley’s effort to make Scotland a Zionist-free zone, the MP for Bradford West announced (on whose authority?): “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, even if any of them had thought of doing so. We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel.”
According to some of his constituents, Bradford is already pretty much a Galloway-free zone.
Anyway I’m sure the readers of Harry’s Place can offer Galloway lots of advice on how to make Bradford an Israel-free zone.
I’ll start with this:
Speaking to the Israeli Knesset in March, Prime Minister Cameron noted:
“[Israeli technology] is providing Britain’s National Health Service with one in six of its prescription medicines through Teva and it has produced the world’s first commercially available upright walking technology which enabled a British paraplegic woman to walk the 2012 London Marathon.”
So obviously the first step is for Galloway to lead a gang of vigilantes into Bradford’s pharmacies to destroy the Zionist drugs. If people suffer and die for lack of needed medications, well… nobody said defeating Zionism was easy.
Update: I’ve been asking this question for years:
Can we stop calling George Galloway 'left-wing' now? Ba'athism, anti-semitism and dictator worship are about as reactionary as it gets.
