A cursory rundown of recent events highlight the utter absurdity ... Read More »

By Nabil Ahmed Just when we thought Muslims had passed the days of negative, terrorism-attached attention, it feels as though they never left.

colorado-theater-james-holmes

The manner in which some Muslim personalities have politicized the “Batman Shooter” tragedy by questioning if it should have been labeled “terrorism” brings to the surface some deeply internalized self-image issues.

George serves as one of eleven members on the Board of the Bradley Foundation. Read More »
