Daniel Taub said that the community initiated his visit and that he was going to use it to talk to concerned parties like faith leaders, councilors, and other groups.
Taub said that the leaders invited him following George Galloway’s controversial comments that clarified that nothing should come from Israel to Bradford including visitors, academics or any form of service.
Taub on his finding said that Bradford was a city that experienced different political atmosphere contrary to what George Galloway was trying to promote.
Taub told the Telegraph and Argus that he could see from his visit that the city of Bradford is more inclusive as opposed to the seclusion mentality that George is portraying to the international community.
Taub said that the inclusion spirit could be seen in how people from, different backgrounds and religions live and work together with the spirit of co-operation.
British police are already investigating the matter that caused a lot of unrest in social media with most people pointing the finger at George Galloway. Galloway said that they reject Israel and they don’t want to have anything to do with them.
Daniel Taub said that he wants George Galloway to understand that the conflict in the region is not between Shia and Sunni or the right and the left, but the actual problem is what happened in the past and what people anticipate in the future.
Taub said that comments by Galloway were trying to take people’s mind to the past and urged him to join those who are working to make the region a better place.

Galloway has been all along against Israel; at one time he declined to continue with a debate on realizing that he was debating with an Israeli. When asked why he made the decision he retaliated that he can’t debate with an Israeli. Galloway has also in the past accused Israel of giving Al-Qaeda chemical weapons and planning to cause conflict in Ukraine.
Daniel Taub’s visit to Bradford is expected to bear fruits; he said that the spirit of Bradford is to have dialogue what he supports.
He said that the people of Bradford invited him indicating that George Galloway doesn’t represent their interest. Taub is optimistic that the good relationship between Bradford and Israel will not be disrupted they Galloway’s comments.
