I was supposed to discuss religious persecution in Iran and Pakistan on the Hannity Show. Instead, the conversation shifted to the old topic of the radicalism of Imam Abdul Rauf of the Islamic center near Ground Zero. Luckily this time around I had more time to set the record straight on the Imam as a person who personally knows him and actually read his contested book. This was also a good opportunity to draw a distinction between religion and its narrow interpretation and cultural application in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia, who don’t represent the true spirit of Islam or the nearly 50 Muslim countries that are much more moderate. I actually enjoyed this debate with Sean Hannity and Brigitte Gabriel who leads an anti-Muslim crusade in the form of her NGO, Act Now America.
