Islamophobia Myth

If there is a backlash against British Muslims, where is the evidence for it? Scaremongering about Islamophobia promotes a Muslim victim culture and allows some community leaders to inflame a sense of injury while suppressing internal debate. The new religious hatred law will make matters worse.

This is a great piece by Kenan Malikin in Prospect. It is particularly strong on the facts and figures.
