In an unprecedented joint statement, the Jewish Board of Deputies and Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) have condemned Islamophobia and anti-Semitism.
In it they acknowledge the “deeply-held views” about the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.
The statement describes the loss of civilian life as unacceptable for both religions.
The statement says: “In spite of the situation in the Middle East, we must continue to work hard for good community relations in the UK.
“We must not import conflict. We must export peace instead.”
