Before I go on a short hiatus, I must advertise the conference I have been working hard on for the last month or so. Hopefully, these efforts go a long way in bridging the great divide that has paralyzed Western-Muslim World relations for the past several years.
Nearly five years after September 11th, how can we improve relations
between the United States and the Muslim World?
