British Muslims Denounce Anti-Semitism

22 May 2018

Leaders of Muslim groups, including Faith Matters, the Association of British Muslims and Tell MAMA, took out a full-page ad in the Telegraph, a major British newspaper, condemning anti-Semitism.

“We understand that many in our country empathize with the Palestinians and their right to a sovereign state. However, we must be ever vigilant against those who cynically use international issues to vilify Jews or promote anti-Semitic tropes,” read the ad, which was signed “Muslims Against Anti-Semitism.”

The Board of Deputies of British Jews thanked the Muslim leaders on Twitter, saying, “Together we will defeat the twin evils of antisemitism & anti-Muslim hate.”
