Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.

In this episode, we get into the implications of this for Saudi Arabia and the Muslim world.

    Joe Biden announced some unprecedented changes to US foreign policy in his first 100 days in office. He wants a full withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan by September. He has officially recognized the Armenian genocide, angering Turkey. He has called frozen arms sales to Saudi Arabia and withdrawn US support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. He has talked tough on China and Russia, angering Putin by openly calling him a killer. What is behind these seismic shifts in US foreign policy, and why now? We get into it in this episode.

    A few years ago, there was a lot of excitement around the Islamic Reform movement. Today, the movement seems to have largely died down. Maajid Nawaz's Quilliam Foundation has folded, and prominent figures like Imam Tawhidi have faded from the public eye. Did it achieve its goals? Was it ever capable of delivering on the big changes it promised? We break it down in this episode.

Lois the Heathen ,

Dr.

The Secular Jihadists is my favourite podcast. I've met Armin and Ali and they are both totally genuine, teriffic people. They interview fascinating people and have interesting, informational podcasts. Love them.

More Armin, no Rizvi

I’ve had to revise my 5-star review. Ali Rizvi had always been a foil to Armin Navabi’s superior knowledge and intellect. This has worked well with Islamic issues.

However, in the recent discussion about riots and protests, Rizvi’s intellectual deficiency has exposed itself as a liability. He literally condoned burning down public property. He needs to go... this needs to be Armin show.

I’m taking a break from this show. Maybe when I come back Rizvi won’t be here.

bilalnextdoor ,

get rid of arman

he just yells and adds no value. voice is so annoying and talks over the guest.
