Mecca and Main Street : Muslim life in America after 9/11 by Geneive Abdo( )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Islam is America's fastest growing religion, with more than six million Muslims in the United States, all living in the shadow of 9/11. Who are our Muslim neighbors? What are their beliefs and desires? How are they coping with life under the War on Terror?" "In Mecca and Main Street, Geneive Abdo offers answers to these questions. Gaining unprecedented access to Muslim communities in America, she traveled across the country, visiting schools, mosques, Islamic centers, radio stations, and homes. She reveals a community tired of being judged by Americans' perceptions of Muslims overseas and eager to tell their own stories. Abdo brings these stories to life, allowing us to hear their own voices and inviting us to understand their hopes and their fears." "This book will appeal to those curious (or fearful) about the Muslim presence in America. It will also be welcomed by the Muslim commujity that it depicts."--Jacket

"The New Sectarianism considers the causes for growing Sunni-Shi'a animosity in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. It illustrates how the two groups perceive one another after the Arab uprisings, how these perceptions have affected Arab life, and how these contestations pose a serious threat to the stability of regional states and to stakeholders in the wider world"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Islam vs. Islam : a special edition of NOW with Bill Moyers( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the West, Islam is often oversimplified-to the detriment of better understanding this complex religion and the diverse interpretations inspired by its tenets. The Aspen Institute and Bill Moyers brought together eight journalists and scholars from the U.S., Pakistan, France, Iraq, Turkey, India, and Britain to join in a conversation about the history and motives of the states too easily grouped under the heading "Islamic nations." The panelists identify and explore the fulcrum of the conflict: increasing tension between the growth of religious expression in the region and the pressures of modernity from the West

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At an Aspen Institute seminar on Islam and the West moderated by Moyers, eight distinguished journalists and scholars from around the world discuss reactions to the destruction of the World Trade Center towers and what subsequent events reveal about Islam's contradictions. Special attention is paid to the influence of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the perception of unlimited American support for Israel. The panel draws distinctions between the behavior of Muslims and the teachings of Islam and articulates the difference between terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda and fundamentalist political groups. They debate the clash of Islam with a modern world and how the Koran can be reconciled with democracy and a viable economy
NOW with Bill Moyers : struggles and solutions in the Middle East( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muslims are a monotheistic people; they believe in one God, Allah, but Muslims around the world are not of one mind. A conference sponsored by the Aspen Institute explored the great collisions of the 21st century, beginning with the collision between Islam and the West. Eight journalists and scholars--among them Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Agnostics--discuss the reactions to September 11 in the Muslim community, and what events since 9/11 reveal about Islam's own contradictions
Religion, Identity, and Countering Violent Extremism by Geneive Abdo( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades, Muslims have been debating political and social aspects of their religious teachings in new ways. The religious debates are connected to and sometimes stem in considerable part from underlying political and social trends--demographic shifts; rising education; unaccountable and authoritarian governance; stuttering economic and governmental performance; and corruption. They cannot, however, be wholly reduced to those trends. Religion is not an isolated field, but neither is it simply a mask for other struggles; the terms and outcomes of religious debates matter in their own right. It is precisely for that reason that the debates are receiving increasing attention not merely from those involved in them but also from non-Muslims in various policy communities. In particular, there is escalating alarm in security-oriented circles that radical individuals and movements, making their arguments in Islamic terms, are threatening global and regional security through terrorism, revolutionary activity, and other forms of political violence"--Publisher's description

Their dialogue does not simply stop at an assessment of the religious and and sociopolitical dynamics of the region, but goes on towards a formulation of a possible plan for peace."--Publisher's website

Salafists and sectarianism : twitter and communal conflict in the Middle East by Geneive Abdo( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The widening divide between Shi'a and Sunni believers has become one of the most important factors in destabilizing the Middle East, and there seems to be no end in sight. The blossoming of the Syrian war into a full-scale sectarian conflict between Shi'a and Sunni Muslims and its spillover into parts of Iraq and Lebanon has re-ignited a debate among U.S. policymakers and Western analysts over whether fundamental doctrinal differences or political rivalry and socio-economic grievances lie behind the conflict. Geneive Abdo shows that chief among the central threads of Salafist discourse in Arabic is an abiding belief that the Shi'a are not real Muslims, and are out to extinguish Sunni believers who, in the Salafist view, are the only true Muslims. This paper will also suggest ways in which events on the ground, whether major battles in the Syrian war or the mere arrest of a Sunni leader, provide fodder for religious intolerance in the Twitter sphere, which then can exacerbate religious strife on the ground. Any doubts about the power of social media, including Twitter and YouTube, to engage and mobilize forces for religious struggle should have been dispelled by the recent recruitment and propaganda successes of the militant Sunnis of the Islamic State
