Another case that happened when the MP for Bradford said that his area was an Israeli free zone. The action by the M.P did not go down well with the Jewish community who protested it and termed it as intolerance of the highest order.
Daniel Taub took action as the ambassador and traveled to Bradford as the ban was still in effect. He wanted to show the world that he would not accept discrimination of the Jewish community by a man who he termed as anti-Israeli. The M.P had already demonstrated his biases towards Israel for a long time.
