The Optimistic Muslim

The Optimistic Muslim – Muslims and Democracy There and Everywhere, what’s going on?

With Muslims around the world pulling down tyrants and demanding democracy abroad, but Muslims condemned as followers of a tyrannical religion and proclaimed a threat to democracy here in North America (at least by Media pundits and Republican party election candidates) there are obviously two completely incompatible tales being told to America, that can’t both be true. Join The Optimistic Muslims as he talks to world-renown International Affairs and Islam expert Dr. John Esposito about what’s REALLY going on in the American Media and the Republican Party, which story’s truth, and which is fiction, what’s behind those two warring narratives being told to America, and why it’s all happening today.
