The Muslim Council of Britain, the country's main Muslim organisation, has decided to maintain its boycott of Holocaust Memorial Day.The BBC sounds awfully credulous here. Does anyone really believe that mentioning victims of other genocides would make the MCB happy or that they were "reconsidering" anything? Another aspect: will the MCB get supportive statements from Eric Alterman again this time?
The MCB's policy is not to take part in the UK's commemorations of the mass murder of Jews because it does not mention non-Jewish victims of genocide.
It had been reconsidering this, but the BBC has learned the MCB has decided to boycott this year's event too.
