No God but God, Ten Years After 9/11: A Conversation with Reza Aslan
(Scholar, Author, and ING board member)

“Ten years after the attacks of 9/11 an internal struggle is taking place among Muslims across the world over the meaning and message of Islam in the 21st century. What has occurred since that fateful day amounts to nothing short of a civil war that is tearing apart the worldwide Muslim community, as a new generation of Muslim youth in Iran, Tunisia, Egypt, and beyond are clamoring for their rights and freedoms. Welcome to the Islamic Reformation.”
– Reza Aslan
