Amazing Talk about Islam

Amidst all these noises about a term, it is quite disappointing to see how people react to something that deserved communication with violence, especially when you think about how far we have "develop" to the civilization we have now. 

I know this is mainly a blog about music, but I listen to National Public Radio from the States a lot. They have a lot of intelligent programs that deeply interest me. Kristen Tippetts' "Speaking of Faith" being one of the programs that I listen to a lot. (Others being Ira Glass's "This American Life", Dee Dee Bridgewater's "Jazz" and also Marian McPartland's "Piano Jazz").

This issue of "Speaking of Faith" , Kristen was interviewing a former Muslim extremist Mr Ed. Hussein. What they were talking about enlightens me, and to a certain extents that I wish that everybody who cares about this country should have a listen.

So here it is:

Please listen, no matter what religion you pledge allegiance to.
