Documentary Of The Week: Islam Is A Religion Of Peace

Written by John Lounsbury

Econintersect: This video is a formal debate of the proposition "Islam is a Religion of Peace". The debate was one in the series of debate programs "Intelligence Squared U.S." sponsored by the Rozenkranz Foundation. Arguing for the motion are Zeba Khan (pictured below) and Maajid Nawaz and against Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Douglas Murray. The audience constitutes the judges, voting on the motion before and after the debate - the team winning the largest change from the audience is the winning team.

Is the rise of terrorism and violence justifiably traced to the teachings of Islam, or is this call to war a twisted interpretation of the true Muslim faith? Most of the world's 1.5 billion Muslims are moderates who see Islamic terrorism as a violation of their sacred texts. Is it wrong to let a radical minority represent authentic Islam? Has fear blinded us to its lessons of tolerance and peace?

Econintersect note: This will be a new experience for those who are familiar only with U.S. political "debates" and have not seen a program following a formal debate format.
