      British Islamic Scholar Calls for a 'United Levant'


      A British Islamic scholar has called for unity among Jews, Muslims and other religious communities in the Levant - the region encompassing modern-day Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan.

      In an exclusive interview with Arutz Sheva, Dr. Sheikh Ramzy said that despite the use of religion by some groups to stoke sectarian violence in the region, the similarities shared by the "Abrahamic faiths" should be a cause for peace and unity.
