Golders Green mosque cancels Muslim Shoah heroes exhibit per Jewish News

The Jewish News report of the local Muslim's reaction:

'A planned exhibition celebrating Muslim Albanians who helped, protected and rescued their Jewish neighbours during the Holocaust has been scrapped.

No reason has been given for the cancellation, but Rabbi Natan Levy, head of operations at Faith Forums for London, and one of the organisers behind the event, said: "We will continue to focus on building local relations even though this event has been cancelled. However, we are confident after reviewing plans there is goodwill to continue working with communities in Barnet.'

The venue was put under pressure by opponents of the exhibit including Roshan Salih, editor of British Muslim news site 5 Pillars, who urged a boycott.'

Don't expect any coverage of this decision on the antisemitic by at least one of the IHRA examples BBC.
