Following the 9/11 events and its aftermath, the media make Islam ‘more known’ by linking it to terrorism and threat to the Western world. Islam is then described as the new enemy to the West representing an ideological and even physical threat. Studies conducted by scholars such as Elizabeth Poole and John E. Richardson indicated that generally Islam and Muslims are represented negatively in the British mainstream media. Taking a different path, the study presented in this book focuses on The Tablet, a leading Catholic weekly newspaper in Britain. Responding to the clash of civilisations hypothesis that dominates the representation of Islam and Muslims in the British mainstream media, The Tablet presents a different perspective by considering Islam and Muslims as partners to the West on the grounds that Islamic civilisation and Western civilisation are compatible.
