A discussion with Imam Shamsi Ali, from The Economist. The Imam heads New York’s largest mosque and he talks about a variety of topical issues, such as the proposed Koran burnings by a Florida preacher, Park 51 and moderate Islam.
It is an interesting interview.
I have posted this interview as Muslim countries are a major component of our world. A number are significant trading partners of our country and it behoves us to understand their perspectives. Furthermore, there is I believe a need for greater understanding on all sides of the various issues involved. In addition, this interview gives a chance to hear things from a different perspective.
