The UK Government and the MCB

The Guardian has an article explaining that the UK government has restored links with Britains biggest Muslim group:

"A standoff between Whitehall and Britain's largest Muslim group ended last night when the government lifted the suspension of formal relations with the Muslim Council of Britain.

A spokesman said: "The MCB restated its longstanding commitment to work with all faith communities, and to speak out against all forms of racism and antisemitism. It also affirmed its deeply held belief that speaking out against the actions of Israel does not mean supporting attacks on Jewish communities around the world. The Muslim Council of Britain also outlined unwavering support for British troops. If there is any objection to be had, it would be directed to the leaders who send them in harm's way."
