Meet the Muslim Memoirist Who Works With Zionists to Try and Forge Islamic-Jewish Ties

“I first discovered Haroon Moghul when I noticed him following me on Twitter. Normally, this wouldn’t have attracted my attention, except that I was pretty sure that he disagreed with most of what I was writing…” more: tabletmag.com

mog harunHaroon Moghul said in his face book page: “I’ve been called a sell-out, a House Muslim, a traitor to the ummah, all because of my work with MLI, a program that takes North American Muslim leaders to Jerusalem to study Judaism, Zionism and Israel with leading Jewish scholars, American and Israeli.

The Only Muslims Hollywood Likes Are The ‘Secular’ Ones

There’s a phrase that’s become common in the reviews and write-ups of “The Big Sick,” a romantic comedy that debuted in theaters in late-June: “culture clash.” The film, which was produced by Judd Apatow, stars Pakistani-American actor Kumail Nanjiani.

Mr. Trump Reconceptualizes Islam?

Image result for Donald Trump“We are not here to lecture—we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship,” Trump said. “Instead, we are here to offer partnership—based on shared interests and values—to pursue a better future for us all.”

Those shared values clearly did not include the human rights concerns he criticized Obama for failing to raise last August…MORE: religionnews
