The United States moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem Monday. It was also the 70th anniversary of establishment of Israel.

The event was marked by deadly clashes between protesters and Israeli forces.  And it came just a day before Muslims around the world began observing the holy month of Ramadan, which starts at sundown on Tuesday.

For all of those 70 years, Muslims here in Atlanta and around the world have debated the best approach to Israel, and how people of faith here can reach a better understanding.

Shaykh Dr. Muhammad Ninowy is the founder and senior in-residence scholar at the Madina Institute USA, a mosque and seminary in Duluth.

He joined Denis O’Hayer on “Morning Edition” to discuss whether Atlanta area Jews and Muslims can find common ground in faith.
