George Galloway under police investigation for declaring constituency "Israel-free" [PressTV]

A prominent British lawmaker is under police investigation for making anti-Israeli comments and declaring his area of Bradford a Israel-free zone.

George Galloway told party activists that Israeli tourists are not welcome in Bradford. Police say this led to two complaints and consequently a West Yorkshire Police investigation. Galloway, who's also a renowned political commentator, has slammed Israel for the massacre of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The British M-P says his community doesn't want any Israeli goods and services, or any Israeli academics in their colleges and universities. The investigation comes as London’s Tricycle Theater has also ended its eight-year association with a Jewish film festival over the Gaza war.
