Jewish anger as George Galloway gets BBC invitation to appear on this week's Question Time. Programme will come from Finchley, home to large Jewish community
Mike Freer, the Conservative MP for Finchley and Golders Green, said the invitation was ‘deliberately provocative’. He added: ‘The BBC can’t have done it by accident. The shameless MP, makes it sounds as if the BBC should ask the Chief Rabbi for a green light before it sets its program.
‘Given what’s going on in the world it is a slap in the face for the local community. It lacks sensitivity,’ MP Freer said, and I wonder, what is happening in the world that should prevent MP Galloway from appearing in a Jewish neighborhood? Furthermore. how inviting a pro-Palestinian MP is a 'slap in the face' to anyone? Quite the opposite, it is actually a golden opportunity for London Jews to learnabout the opposition to their beloved Jewish State.
The Board of Deputies of British Jews also attacked the decision to invite Mr Galloway – but said they were not "calling on the BBC to retract the invitation." This is indeed a great positive news. Apparently Goyim can still drive through North West London without applying for an Israeli pass.
