Islamic Extremist

Really good podcast. Learned a lot!! I felt the comment about the number of Muslims that believe in violenc is a very small number or percentage is a little misleading. The number of Muslims who actually perform the violence maybe very small but I wonder how many Muslims support their actions? I’ve heard as much as 25% off all Muslims support extremists. Wonder if the show would like to comment on that thought?

C’mon interviewer in 120! Listen to your expert!

The interviewer continued to refer to the dehumanizing “slaves” over and over again while the interviewee scholar consistently (with one exception) says “enslaved persons”. The interviewer just doesn’t get it and keeps it up without apology. Weird. Otherwise a great episode and podcast.
