This dissertation is an analysis of one year coverage of two Muslim newspapers in the UK: The Muslim News and The Muslim Weekly. It examines content and discourse in order to establish the predominant themes in the coverage of both newspapers throughout the year. Five dominant themes are discussed with an aim to establish how Muslim community and British Muslim identity are constructed in the particular context. These themes include: Terrorism and Extremism, Islamophobia, Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Islam and Muslim Values and Muslim community in the UK. The frequency with which these themes appeared in the coverage of both newspapers reveals their importance as far as the editorial choice is concerned, as well as the interest of the Muslim readership. However, the discourse analysis allows for the better understanding as to how these themes are constructed by both newspapers and how, in the context of these themes, The Muslim News and The Muslim Weekly construct the image of Muslim community in the UK and British Muslim identity.
