Faisal Abdul Rauf’s TED Talk

Text settings

Jeffrey Goldberg reports on a speech Faisal Abdul Rauf gave at a memorial service for Daniel Pearl. It's worth reading. Secondly, here's the Imam giving a TED talk last year on the religious backdrop of compassion. Not really my kind of thing but perhaps it is yours. I must say that he doesn't come across as a dangerous radical but that doubtless makes the disguise all the more cunning.

Now, sure, some opponents won't be swayed by any of this but there must be some for whom it does matter. Right?
