Former CST boss will help Muslim group battle Islamophobia
by Marcus Dysch
British Jewry's leading communal security expert has explained why he felt obliged to help a Muslim group tackle Islamophobia.
Richard Benson, who retired as chief executive of the Community Security Trust last year after 12 years at the helm, was appointed co-chair of the Tell Mama group this week.
Tell Mama — the Mama stands for "measuring anti-Muslim attacks" — was set up to help British Muslims report discrimination and monitor incidents in a similar way to the CST's recording of antisemitism. CST has worked closely with the group.
