7:00 pm – 9:00 pm full program in the Community Room, Lower Level
In this day and age of information (& misinformation) overload, we bring you directly to the source to learn more about your Muslim neighbors and their beliefs. During this series, you will view a film about one aspect of Islam and will then have the opportunity to ask questions to a panel.
Inside Islam explores the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world’s first major opinion poll, conducted by Gallup, the preeminent polling organization. Following its release, the film was broadcast on select PBS stations during 2008 and 2009. Gallup researchers began by asking the questions on every American’s mind. Why is there so much anti-Americanism in the Muslim world? Who are the extremists and how do Muslims feel about them? What do Muslims like and dislike about the West? What do Muslim women really want? Crucial policy decisions hang on these questions. They continue to generate passionate disagreements in the public square. Yet for all the heat and controversy, the actual views of the world’s Muslims have been conspicuously missing from this debate until now. This film is not rated. No registration necessary.
