UK Jewish leaders criticize Galloway anti-Israel comment

Britain's main Jewish umbrella group has spoken out following MP George Galloway's refusal to debate an Israeli at an Oxford University event on Wednesday.
"British Universities are rightly cherished as places where debate and discussion can thrive," said the Board of Deputies in a statement. "Yet it would seem that those intent on demonising the State of Israel would rather crush freedom of speech in pursuit of their own agenda of blind hatred."
