ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE

Category: Faith & Spirituality, Life & Society, Videos Topics: Islam Values: Peace

Intelligence Squared U.S. brings provocative and timely debates.

Is the rise of terrorism and violence justifiably traced to the teachings of Islam, or is this call to war a twisted interpretation of the true Muslim faith? Most of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims are moderates who see Islamic terrorism as a violation of their sacred texts. Is it wrong to let a radical minority represent authentic Islam? Has fear blinded us to its lessons of tolerance and peace?
