Muslim group purchases full page ad in major newspaper condemning anti-Semitism

The British Muslim Group Muslims Against Anti-Semitism took out a full page ad in U.K. newspaper the Telegraph, condemning anti-Semitism and promoting unity in light of the horrific events that occurred between the Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border during the opening of the new United States Embassy in Jerusalem.

“For far too long, anti-Semitism has gone unchecked,” the ad read.

“Sadly, it has become entrenched across society. Its poison can be found in all political parties and among followers of all faith, including Islam.”

“There is no cause that can justify the promotion of hate.”

The ad was signed by various groups including the Association of British Muslims, Faith Matters (a Muslim group focused on fighting anti-extremism), and Tell MAMA, a project that records and measures anti-Muslim activities in the UK.

In the response to the ad, the Board of Deputies of British Jews praised the call for unity saying, “Incredible solidarity” in a twitter post. “Together we will defeat the twin evils of antisemitism & anti-Muslim hate.”


Something that undoubtedly not be reported in the UK MSM.....
