A group of British Muslims have founded a pro-Israeli organisation. Hasan Afzal of “British Muslims for Israel” recounts of many reactions of surprise and shock at such unexpected political activism. It was founded by young Muslim professionals in early 2011 who did not like the directions discussions took when it came to the Middle East conflict, in which many people questioned Israel’s right to exist. The group’s website BritishMuslimsForIsrael.com enjoys increasing popularity.
