We are a not for profit organisation that is made up of British Muslims who believe that anti-Semitism in all of its guises, needs to be challenged.
We also believe that anti-Semitism, the oldest hatred, resurfaces at times of crisis or political upheavals and we are particularly concerned about the growth in anti-Semitism because of social media, just as there has been a rise in anti-Muslim hatred and in other forms of hate.
This is unacceptable and places up on as Muslims, a duty to stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters. Their safety is our safety, in a world that is changing and where old hatreds are coming back.
Sadly, we also have to acknowledge that anti-Semitism within small sections of Muslim communities has become entrenched and goes unchallenged. For far too long, many have turned a blind eye. This is something that we cannot do. We need to challenge and counter this anti-Semitism which hijacks international causes, like the cause of an independent Palestine, and which uses the politics against Jewish communities. No longer can we allow this to happen.
