Muslim British leader moves towards reconciliation with Jews
LONDON (EJP)---One of Britains most controversial Muslim leaders has declared that there is "an enormous amount" that Muslims could learn from the way Jews have integrated into the UK.

Inayat Bunglawala made his claims in an exclusive interview with the European Jewish Press (EJP) on Tuesday after becoming the first Muslim Council of Britain representative ever to address a major Jewish movement, when he spoke to the Jewish Community Centre for London (JCC) in the suburb of Hampstead on Monday night.
