    Better Understanding of Islam

    The Boston Marathon Bombing sent me searching for this book about which I had heard previously. I found it very enlightening and refreshing to take a look at this faith from its beginning and to see how extremists and cultural traditions have deviated so far from what Mohammed understood and taught. Powerful. Certainly paralled in Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and other religious histories. Bravo to Asma for bravely speaking out with a message that needs to be heard. She intertwines her own experiences and family history to illustrate and educate. (Wonderful that a Pueblo, CO child I remember from years ago has grown up to be such an advocate for her faith, the US and women.)

    more from this reviewer

    Red White and Muslim,presents the moderate muslim.

    Last night at the debut launch of this book at the Tattered Cover book store in Denver Colorado,I met the author Asma Hasan and heard about how she got the book published.It was an event co-hosted by the ACLU of Colorado.
    As soon as I reached home and picked up the book I could not stop reading.
    The stories that are nestled in the various chapters give a unique view into a young american muslims mind.This is very different from what the media and pundits have told us about muslims.
    I was touched about the viewpoint that the War On Terror has actually hurt the status of the muslim women around the world.Asma also makes the point how because of the War On Terror,Muslim women are being forced to wear the head covering.I loved reading about the Ethopian muslim women who are in the legislature and how they managed to get there.
    Everyone who wants to understand muslims and especially american muslims should read the book and then give the copy to the nearest library.The more people that read this book the better we will understand each other and hope for a good relationship.
    Asma talked about her recent Forbes Magazine editoral,where she said she regarded President Barack Obama as a muslim.Her explanation is worth reading.Good way to connect to our lives these days.
    I have always liked Fareed Zakiriya of CNN.He reccomends reading this book and I am happy to agree with him.
