MCB leader at JCC in London

I first saw it at the European Jewish Press and then at the Associated Press of Pakistan, that “Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), is due to speak at the Jewish Community Centre for London in Hampstead, north London.” Apparently it is a big deal, because it is happening the first time and because MCB is pressured to move towards moderation. Mr. Bunglawala will be participating in a debate title ‘Does more unite Muslims and Jews than divides them?’ I presume his opinion hasn’t changed since “he argued, in an interview with the Jewish Chronicle last Friday, that the Jewish and Muslim communities have much in common, despite being divided by differing views on the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.” It’s nice to see that high level connections are built not just the kind of grassroots I usually mention here.
