British MP George Galloway was questioned under caution by police after declaring his constituency of

West Bradford "an Israel-free zone," the BBC reported on Tuesday.

 

 

Galloway was questioned voluntarily following complaints made after he urged his constituents to boycott Israeli goods, services, academics and tourists in a speech he made on August 2. His spokesman said he cooperated with police.

 

"We have declared Bradford an Israel-free zone," he said in the speech made at a meeting for activists of the the leftist Respect party.

 

 

"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 - and you have to do the same."
