NEW FREE INTERVIEW SERIES -
Why this topic? We start with ethics, with caring, with a sense of right and wrong, good and bad. We somehow become concerned about Islam.
But what do we do? A few people instantly become activists, the moment they feel something is wrong. Far more of us are confused, uncertain, hesitant. We don't know what to do, what might work. We aren't sure what is real. What we're learning doesn't go with the mainstream message about Islam. Or we try things, but see that we're not getting our message through to people. Or we wish we knew how to do more.
Finding effective strategies - not easy. Each of the people interviewed has found their own way of being active about what is happening with Islam throughout the world. They have figured out effective ways of reaching people.
There will be another set of interviews in the last week of August, and September, and October, and perhaps longer. The series could keep going for a long time. Why? The core focus of the interviews is activism. Activism. Something utterly vital.
The other people are what I term "local heroes" - people who have found ways of reaching others in a smaller way.
Robert Spencer, of JihadWatch, which has a worldwide reach. On top of that, he's published 13 books, including 2 New York Times bestsellers. His most recent book: Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We’re In.
Rabbi Jonathan Hausman, of the Hausman Memorial Speakers Series. He's put his job on the line, by hosting, at the synagogue where he's the rabbi, a speaker series that includes Robert Spencer, Allen West … and even Geert Wilders of Fitna fame.
Narain Kataria, who as a teenager experienced the partition of India. Over 1,000,000 Hindu and Sikh deaths. Now he educates - through the Indian American Intellectuals Forum, and the Human Rights Coalition against Radical Islam - about the menace of terrorism all over the world. Most of his activism has taken place after retirement - quite a common occurrence.
And who will be fourth?
It could be Chris Logan, of North American Infidels. He's a 12-year veteran of this war most people in the West refuse to recognize is happening. It could be Alexandra Belaire (Canada) or Daniel Scot (Australia) or Andrew Harrod (United States). Or it could be Meir Weinstein (Canada), who has been organizing people to confront, for example, pro-Hamas anti-Israel rallies. You will be hearing from all of these and more.
In August, the "big name" person will be the remarkable Bill Warner, who has a PhD in Physics, but has dedicated himself to counter-jihad since 9/11.
Why should their stories matter to us?
