Centre for Social Cohesion witch-hunts ‘Islam is Peace’ campaign

“On 24 September, posters stating ‘Islam is Peace’ and ‘Proud to be a British Muslim’ appeared on London buses, London Underground trains and in airports around Britain – the latest phase in a campaign by the group Islam-is-Peace to ‘address the negative perceptions and stereotypes of Islam and British Muslims’, according to the group’s website. But although Islam-is-Peace presents itself as independent, its only known senior members are also prominent figures in the Muslim Association of Britain – a Hamas-linked group whose founder and a chief ideologue have publicly defended Islamic terrorism.”
