Webinar on The Promise and Perils of Islam in North America
In this talk, Anne Norton will take up both the perils facing Muslims in the United States and Canada and the promise their presence and political involvement offers to these nations. However, she is aware, that this conversation goes deeper than the politics of our time, for she believes the Qu’ran, Islamic law and philosophy offer resources for understanding and practicing democracy.
