Tell Mama


Nick Cohen had an excellent piece in The Observer recently highlighting the strange phenomenon of a charity (Tell MAMA) set up to report and counter attacks on British Muslims is itself under attack from fanatical Islamists for associating with 'pro-Zionists and homosexuals'. 

The 'crime' alleged by Tell MAMA's opponents is that they are learning and sharing from the experience of Jewish and gay rights groups in defending their own communities from hate crimes and violent attacks.

The most vocal attacks on a group fighting Islamophobic attacks are not racist yobs but friends of the Islamist right
