Tell MAMA: Most Islamophobic Attackers Are White Men
(Story in Full... | More | Want to comment? | Esin )

 
 
By Aina Khan, Al Jazeera

Anti-Muslim attacks in the UK rose 47 percent in 2016 compared with the previous year, according to a new report released by Tell MAMA, a hate crime monitor.

The attacks were largely levelled at Muslim women - 56 percent of victims of 642 incidents were female. Sixty-six percent of perpetrators were male, and 69 percent were white men. Victims came from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.

Although not all Muslim women wear clothing that identifies them as followers of the Islamic faith, those who don the headscarf, face veil, robe and other garments are disproportionately targeted of gendered Islamophobia, said the report, which was released on Thursday.

Coming from an ethnic minority background, being female and Muslim has created a brand of Islamophobia with an "intersectional nature", crossing boundaries of gender, race and religion, Tell MAMA said.

In the week following the EU referendum vote, the charity reported a 475 percent spike in anti-Muslim attacks, a jump also witnessed after the Tower Bridge attacks.

Islamophobia Prevents UK Muslims From Succeeding At Work: The British Anti-Islam Hate

Muslims in the U.K. are "less likely to succeed in the labor market than any other faith group", a report published by a government commission said Thursday.

Research released by the Social Mobility Commission said: "Young Muslims living in the U.K. face an enormous social mobility challenge and are being held back from reaching their full potential at every stage of their lives."

The report uncovers some "significant barriers to improved social mobility from school through university and into the workplace" as "Islamophobia, discrimination and racism" are reported by many of the young Muslims.

Islamophobia Holding Back UK Muslims In Workplace, Study Finds

One in five Muslim adults in full-time work compared with 35% of overall population, Social Mobility Commission says

Muslim men and women are being held back in the workplace by widespread Islamophobia, racism and discrimination, according to a study which finds that Muslim adults are far less likely to be in full-time work.

Research for the government's social mobility watchdog, shared exclusively with the Guardian, found a strong work ethic and high resilience among Muslims that resulted in impressive results in education.

However, that was not translated into the workplace, with only 6% of Muslims breaking through into professional jobs, compared with 10% of the overall population in England and Wales.

England Is Now More Pro-immigrant - But It's More Islamophobic Too

Phil McDuff

Reading through Hope Not Hate's latest report on their surveys of English attitudes towards race and immigration, one comes away with a mix of optimism and pessimism. Those of us who are what the organisation describes as "confident multiculturals" – or what the tabloids would describe as out-of-touch liberal elitists – can be heartened by what seem to be an increase in our ranks. We now make up 22% of the sample, up from 8% in the first survey in 2011. The two most pro-immigrant groups now make up 39% of the overall total.

At the other end of the spectrum, those who are "hostile" to immigration have remained consistent, but with a shift from those who are most fiercely opposed – down from 13% to 5% since 2011 – to the group described as "latently hostile," up to 17% from 10% in the same period. This indicates that even those people harbouring anti-immigrant views are more likely to engage with the political process than to resort to direct violence themselves or support it in others.

Man Who Set Dog On 2 Muslims And Ordered It To Bite Them Jailed For 2,5 Years

Manchester Crown Court on Monday sentenced a Polish man to 2,5 years in prison for setting his dog on two Muslims in a racist attack during Ramadan.

32-year-old Jakub Wendland was jailed on the charges of assault, assaulting police officers, using racially-aggravated words and causing injury with a dangerous dog, all of which he pleaded guilty to. However, he denied being a 'racist'.

Judge Tony Cross QC defined the man's dangerous acts as "a campaign of racism carried out over the course of two hours in two separate areas," Manchester Evening News reported.

Of Course British Muslims Are Being Held Back - This Is An Islamophobic Country

Shaista Aziz

The government's study into the social mobility challenges faced by young British Muslims once again shines a troubling spotlight on how race, class, Islamophobia and patriarchy within Muslim communities – and wider British society – is impacting the life chances and quality of life for a significant section of the British population.

It also further highlights the deepening fractures in our society. It is not inconsequential that the report from the government's social mobility commission has been published days before the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the subsequent normalisation of anti-Muslim rhetoric in so much of our political, social and media discourse.

It is important for this connection to be made if we want to understand the wider context behind why British Muslims are lagging so behind with social mobility. The impact of 9/11 and the so-called "war on terror" on the lives of young British Muslims cannot be separated from the avalanche of racism and Islamophobia, micro-aggressions and hate crimes many young people face and the impact this is having on all aspects of their lives, from mental and physical wellbeing to career prospects.

We Think Bigotry Will Never Reach UK Shores But Looking At Our Newspapers You'll See That It Has

Assistant secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, writing in a personal capacity

"The Muslim Problem": that's what columnist Trevor Kavanagh asked the Sun's readers to find a solution for. If the phrase sounds familiar, it is. The language used appears to have been borrowed from the Nazis in the 1930s, where they implemented their "Final Solution" to the "Jewish problem" - a fact highlighted by the Board of Deputies of Jews.

Some might argue that this is nothing new: the Sun has a history of spreading hatred, from its Katie Hopkins' column dehumanising migrants by comparing them to "cockroaches" to its significantly misleading and dangerous front page "1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for Jihadis". But this goes beyond outrageous and vile bigotry, which often finds itself within the Sun's pages.

In the UK, in 2017 we have a national newspaper with over 1.5 million readers, publishing Nazi language and specifically targeting Muslims. This - in a week where the Sunday Times reported 40 neo-Nazis were being investigated amidst fears they are plotting terrorist attacks against Muslims.

I genuinely could not believe what I saw.

This indicates that even those people harbouring anti-immigrant views are more likely to engage with the political process than to resort to direct violence themselves or support it in others.

However, the report also details a significant rise in anti-Muslim sentiment. 42% of people said that the recent terrorist attacks have increased their suspicion of Muslims in Britain, including many of those in the more liberal groups. Around 50% of people would be willing to see relaxation of human rights protections to "help fight terrorism," and a similar proportion see Islam itself as "a threat to the west".

I'm A Muslim And I'm A Problem: UK Media - Stand Up, Stand Out, Spread
(Story in Full... | More | Want to comment? | Esin )

 
 
Tahmid Islam, citizensuk.org

I'm A Muslim And I'm A Problem: UK Media - Stand Up, Stand Out, Spread Love, Stop Hate

That's the message the Sun newspaper and Trevor Kavanagh have put across. The repercussion of such a message is fear and ignorance ultimately manifesting in hate towards my community and the communities that I work with.

The press and the media have a huge responsibility as a source of information for millions of people, to put out stories in which they are accountable for. If you write a story that scapegoats and boxes a community into a specific negative category you harbour people's fear and insecurities, you are held accountable to the violence and hate that comes after.

As a young Muslim and a community organiser, I worry for my community and those that I represent. My dad, who wears a cap and has a full-length beard, has to travel to work everyday on public transport; my sisters, who adopt the hijab, take the train to college and university and I have to think about whether they're ok and safe everyday.

The Islamic institutions I work with face the full brunt of hate too. Just two months ago we had a horrific incident occur at Muslim Welfare House in Islington, a member of North London Citizens. Because of the hate and ignorance exacerbated by the press, a man decided that it was ok to run over Muslims congregating after taraweeh prayers leading to the death of one man and severe injuries of others.

Jeremy Corbyn accuses articles in The Sun of 'inciting Islamophobia' after 100 MPs slam column about 'Muslim problem'

Jeremy Corbyn has accused The Sun of publishing articles that 'incite Islamophobia' after more than 100 MPs complained about an opinion piece.

The Labour leader has waded into the row over a column by Trevor Kavanagh which ended with the words: "What will we do about The Muslim Problem".


A letter signed by 107 MPs, including Labour, Conservatives, Lib Dems and the Greens, complained the "dangerous" article echoed language used about Jews before the Holocaust.

They wrote to the newspaper's editor after Jewish and Muslim groups launched a joint complaint to press regulator IPSO .

British Muslim teacher taken off US-bound flight: I was treated like a criminal

Juhel Miah, 25, calls for explanation for treatment by US officials, which left him feeling angry and humiliated

A young British Muslim teacher escorted off a New York-bound flight by US officials in front of the school party he was helping lead has spoken of his concerns that he was targeted simply because of his religion.

Maths teacher Juhel Miah, 25, who was born in Birmingham and brought up in Swansea, said his treatment left him feeling humiliated. Both he and his school are demanding an explanation from the US authorities.

Miah told the Guardian: "I'm not an angry type of person. I don't get easily worked up, otherwise I wouldn't be a teacher. But I was definitely angry. It hit me the hardest was when I was being escorted off the plane. Everyone was looking at me.

"Not just members of the public but my school, my kids, fellow teachers. It made me feel so small, as if I had done something wrong, as if I am a criminal. Everyone must have been thinking that – even the kids from my school. I hope not but that's what was going through my head. I didn't know where to look.

UK mosques open their doors as Jeremy Corbyn sends message to Trump

As hundreds of Islamic centres across the country welcome visitors, Labour leader warns against 'demonisation' of Muslims

Jeremy Corbyn has challenged the "demonisation" of Muslims and sent a message to Donald Trump that "drinking tea together is far more effective than pouring concrete to build walls to keep each other apart".

The Labour leader delivered what he called a "very gentle message to a man across the Atlantic" as he spoke at Finsbury Park mosque in north London, one of more than 150 that opened their doors on Sunday to allow people of other faiths or of no faith to take tours and ask questions about Islam.

Muslims were "being demonised by some people", he said, but visitors to the mosque's open day were expressing "support for an inclusive society and support for a society which respects all faiths and all religions".

"Over the past few weeks, there's been some awful language used in many parts of the world. Awful language degenerates into awful actions. Those awful actions end up in the deaths of wholly innocent people, as happened in Quebec," Corbyn said in a reference to the deaths of six people in a gun attack on a mosque in the Canadian city.

Nigel Farage Brushes Aside Impassioned Plea From Saira Khan In Fiery Loose Women Debate

'I could throw that back at you.'

Nigel Farage was embroiled in an explosive row on daytime television this lunchtime over President Donald Trump's Muslim refugee ban.

The former Ukip leader clashed with Loose Women presenter Saira Khan as she passionately explained her frustration at the immediate association of Muslims and terrorists.

Asked how he might feel if someone were to attack a Muslim person as a result of his rhetoric, Farage brushed aside her concerns, saying: "I could throw that back at you."

Read the transcript of the fiery exchange, below, and watch the clip, above.

Asked if Britain should issue a ban similar to that initiated by Trump, Farage said: "No I don't. I think we should be vetting anyone who comes into this country to ensure they haven't got a criminal record and they speak the language."

Hijabi News Anchor Hopes Her Career Milestone Can Inspire Muslim Women Everywhere

"Tonight wasn't just important for me. I don't think a woman in hijab has ever anchored a newscast in Canada."

Toronto's CityNews channel needed an anchor to fill in for a broadcast last week, so Ginella Massa stepped up to the plate ― becoming, she believes, the first woman in a hijab to appear on a Canadian newscast.

The response to her first segment in front of the camera has been "overwhelmingly positive," she told The Huffington Post in an email. Still, nasty comments are difficult to escape.

"I think in Canada we are sometimes a little smug because we are such a multicultural and accepting country, we often like to act like we don't have to worry about hatred and racism here, but it does exist," she said.

One person tweeted that putting Massa in front of the camera was "a massive stride backwards in evolution." But the journalist appears to take even comments of that nature in stride:

Fatima Manji: Ipso Ruling On Kelvin MacKenzie's Sun Column Heralds 'Open Season On Muslims'

Channel 4 news anchor Fatima Manji has warned Muslim and other minority groups in Britain are now "open to attack" after the country's press watchdog rejected complaints about a column by Kelvin MacKenzie.

The Channel 4 journalist said it was "frightening" that Ipso, the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso), had cleared MacKenzie of wrong-doing.

In a column in July, the former Sun editor branded Islam a "violent religion" and attacked Manji for wearing a hijab while reporting on the Nice terror attack. It attracted more than 1,900 complaints.

Responding to Ipso's decision on Thursday, Manji revealed she had been contacted by staff at The Sun and News UK - the paper's parent company - who were "embarrassed" and "ashamed" by what had happened.

MPs Criticise 'Bigoted' Sun Columnist Kelvin MacKenzie For Row Over Channel 4 News Fatima Manji Report

A Tory minister has been praised for rubbishing "bigoted" Sun columnist Kelvin MacKenzie for his article condemning a Muslim journalist for wearing a hijab on-screen.

Commons Speaker John Bercow hailed a speech from new Education Secretary Justine Greening, who mentioned the row brewing over a controversial column published on Monday.

Greening took aim at the article by MacKenzie that had criticised Channel 4 News for having Fatima Manji - a "young lady wearing a hijab" - front coverage of the Nice terror attack that left 84 dead.

The recently promoted Tory minister criticised the Sun's "deeply offensive" piece and said women should have the right to wear what they want.

"From my perspective, I'm proud we live in a country where men and women are equal but that includes women having the right to wear what they want," Greening said.

Islamophobia growing as anti-extremism policy fails, says MP

Supremacists will thrive, says Liam Byrne, unless government sees that grievance rather than god inspires many to violence

A vacuum at the heart of the government’s counter-extremism policy is leading British Muslims to despair in the face of spiralling Islamophobia, a former Labour Cabinet and Home Office minister has warned.

Liam Byrne says that thousands of Islamic State foreign fighters are expected to return to Europe, including Britain, after the fall of Mosul and use Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric to find fresh recruits in a new book.

In his book, Black Flag Down: Counter-extremism, defeating Isis and winning the battle of ideas, Byrne says that any new strategy must reflect current security services’ thinking – which, he says, means rejecting David Cameron’s claims that there is a simple “conveyor belt” that links religious faith to extremism.

Loose Canon: Assimilation threatens the existence of other cultures
(Story in Full... | More | Want to comment? | Esin )

 
 
Giles Fraser

This week a doctor from north London was telling me about one of his patients, a lad of 20 who has lived in the borough of Hackney all his life. He was born here and grew up here. And he's a bright boy – yet he speaks only a few very rudimentary words of English. The language he speaks at home and at school is Yiddish. Some may be appalled by the insularity of the community in which this young man was raised. But I admire it. In particular, I admire the resilience of a community that seeks to maintain its distinctiveness and recognises, quite rightly, that assimilation into the broader culture would mean the gradual dilution, and the eventual extinction, of its own way of life. It is no surprise to me that the ultra orthodox are thriving, with high birth rates and predictions that they will be constitute a majority of the Jewish population within 20 years. They have refused assimilation.

It adds immeasurably to the richness and diversity of how life is apprehended that not everyone sees the world in the same way. It is mind-expanding to be challenged by those who commit to another way of life. What a miserably grey one-dimensional place it would be if the dominant model of middle-of-the-road liberal secular capitalism became the only acceptable way of living.

Before Her Murder, UK Slain MP Jo Cox Worked On Islamophobia Report

The slain MP was concerned about Islamophobic violence in her constituency, especially against Muslim women.

Jo Cox, the UK Labour MP killed on Thursday right outside her constituency office, was working on a report about violence against Muslims, especially Muslim women, the Guardian reported today.

Working alongside the Islamophobia watchdog Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks, or Tell Mama, she was going to address parliament later this month about the findings of the report.

The study's main conclusion was that there were about 80 percent more attacks against Muslims in the U.K. in 2015 than in the previous year.

ISLAMOPHOBIA AND JOE COX'S DEATH

ISLAMOPHOBIA- The Idea Of Hate Directed Towards Muslims- May Have Been Connected To The Murder Of Joe Cox.

Recent revelation that the murdered Labour Mp, was about to release a report warning of an 80 percent rise in Islamophobic incidents in the UK. The report was to warn of a high level of far right activity across Yorkshire.

Scheduled for release on the 29th if June, the report was being prepared alongside Tell Mama- an organisation which releases reports on anti Muslim reports every year. The organisation also works with three police forces whose data are used to store national estimates.

It is clear that Cox's support for the Remain group caused her death. However, a new line of assessment and inquiry is whether ISLAMOPHOBIA was also a cause.

Why the British media is responsible for the rise in Islamophobia in Britain

Less than 0.5 per cent of journalists in the UK are Muslim. No wonders so many misleading stories make the cut

Once again, a newspaper's integrity has been found wanting as the press regulator, IPSO, judged the Daily Star Sunday's headline, ''UK mosques fundraising for terror'', to be ''significantly misleading'' following a complaint lodged by myself. The paper clarified its error on page 2, noting that UK mosques were actually ''not involved in any way''. This came just a week after The Sun was forced to acknowledge that its headline ''1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for jihadis'' was similarly misleading.

Such inaccuracies are not restricted to the tabloid press. The Times, for example, claimed Muslims were ''silent on terror''. This allegation has since been unequivocally rebuffed not only by Home Secretary Theresa May but also by senior counter-terror officers such as Neil Basu and Scotland Yard's former anti-terror chief Richard Walton.

'People grab our veils, call us terrorists and want us dead': What it's really like to be a Muslim woman in Britain

Islamophobic attacks have been on the rise ever since 9/11, but it is mostly women being attacked, a recent report suggests. Ava Vidal shares stories from British Muslim women who face everyday awful abuse

''It is something I have got used to since 9/11. From being called Osama Bin Laden to Paki-terrorist I have heard it all,'' Zab Mustefa, a British Muslim journalist, who specialises in women's rights and culture, tells me.

Since the terrorist attacks on New York City that brought down the twin towers, it seems life has not been the same for Muslims that live in the western world. Suddenly there was a spotlight shone on Islam when most non-Muslims had barely given it a second thought before.

''Either you're with us. Or you're with the terrorists,'' announced the then president of the USA George W Bush in a sombre tone at a press conference following the attacks.

A Muslim student had her face veil ripped off in a racist attack outside a London university, it has been claimed. The woman had joined members of an Islamic Society running a stall outside the Strand campus of King's College London (KCL) as part of Discover Islam awareness week on 4 March.

The group, who were handing out literature, became involved in a 30-minute altercation when two men who approached the stall behaving in a "threatening and abusive" manner towards female Muslim students. The incident allegedly then resulted in one woman's niqab being violently pulled from her face.

Hareem Ghani, a student and friend of the woman allegedly attacked, said: "Two white men approached sisters on the stalls outside Strand and began to verbally assault them. This eventually escalated to physical threats of violence, and a fellow sister had her niqab (full-face veil) pulled off by one of the men."

UK: Poor reporting, media illiteracy fuel Islamophobia

Imbalanced reporting on Muslims and British Islamic community's media illiteracy contribute to "hostility", study says.

The way the UK's mainstream media covers certain issues relating to Muslims and the British Islamic community's inability to represent itself are contributing to rising Islamophobia, recent research suggests.

Developed across the University of Cambridge, research conducted over 2015 led to a roundtable at the House of Lords in January that discovered an "atmosphere of rising hostility" towards the country's 2.7 million Muslims, who comprise less than 5 percent of the 64 million-strong population.

Meanwhile, the two factors meant more Muslims were seeking news from other sources such as television or radio stations from their countries of origin.

Newcastle Schoolgirl Branded 'Terrorist' Gives Moving Speech Against Islamophobia

A Newcastle schoolgirl who was branded a "terrorist" by fellow students in the wake of the Paris attacks has spoken out against Islamophobia in a moving school assembly.

Isra Mohammed, 15, told classmates at Kenton School: "Terrorism has no religion and terrorism is not the face of Islam."

The Muslim teen says she and her siblings were blamed for the terrorist attacks in France in November, with her brother being told: "Your religion is killing people."

Britain Must Not Give in to Islamophobia

This weekend, the world marks one month since the horrific attacks in Paris. I am repulsed every time terrorists commit such massacres and cause such terrible human suffering. The fact that the perpetrators of the Paris and other attacks espouse rhetoric linking their senseless murders to Islam disgusts me even further.

I totally understand that there is anger and fear amongst some people in Britain regarding what the terrorists did in Paris and what carnage they could potentially cause on our soil. Following the Paris attacks, some people are thinking twice before visiting crowded places because of this fear. But levelling hatred towards ordinary Muslims - who oppose the hateful views of ISIS - is not the answer.
