“[Israel's] Kafkaesque matrix of control. Including land theft, settlements, agricultural crop destruction, checkpoints, Jews only bypass roads, curfews, closures, military zones, no-go ones, off-limits commercial and tourist areas, ghettoization, zoning, home demolitions, building permit policy, travel restrictions and overall denial of fundamental civil and human rights.

For weeks, it was unclear how Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would respond. On October 15, it said Galloway won’t be prosecuted for declaring West Bradford an “Israeli-free zone.”
