The Israeli ambassador gently trolls George Galloway

Here's Israeli ambassador Daniel Taub proudly holding his passport in Bradford. Mr Taub was there - in the words of the Israeli embassy's press office - to meet with "leading local councillors and faith leaders" as well as supporters of Israel.

We imagine he was also there partly to troll Bradford West MP George Galloway, who declared Bradford an "Israel-free zone" earlier this month.

Mr Galloway told a meeting of the Respect party in Leeds: "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 coming to Bradford even if any of them had thought of doing so."

In response to Mr Taub's visit Mr Galloway told Buzzfeed he may not, in reality, be able to make Bradford an Israel-free zone, adding: "But I am certain that the Israeli ambassador was not welcome".
