Galloway’s sentiments greatly perturbed Daniel Taub. He views Bradford differently as the words of Galloway came as a surprise to Taub.
Daniel Taub was the idea that the ideas being spread by Galloway did not represent the real picture of Bradford. The British Police even launched investigations against Galloway.
The investigations targeted his speech, which sparked hue and cry after it was posted online on social media. Galloway had said that Bradford was to avoid any Israeli goods and people were to strive to keep the city “Israel free.”
He even said that Bradford was to avoid all the services provided by the Israelis. He also added that Bradford did not want any Israeli student studying in any college or university in that region.
Surprisingly, even the Israeli tourists were not welcome in Bradford. He referred to Israel as barbaric, illegal as well as a savage state. This angered Daniel Taub who termed it as the fight between past and future.
He was resistant to the fact that Galloway was pulling the region behind instead of fostering peace and stability that would result in immense growth in the region. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.daniel-taub.co.il/ and https://soundcloud.com/danieltaub
