Rabbi Michael Beyo and Dr. Adrian McIntyre talk with M. Zuhdi
Jasser, MD, the Founder and President of the
https://aifdemocracy.org/ (American Islamic Forum for Democracy)
and the author of “A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American
Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith.” A first-generation
American Muslim, Jasser’s parents fled the oppressive Baath regime
of Syria in the mid-1960's for American freedom. A devout Muslim,
he and his family have strong ties to the American Muslim community
having helped lead mosques in Wisconsin, Arkansas, Virginia and
Arizona. In the wake of the 9/11 attacks on the United States,
Jasser and a group of American Muslims founded AIFD which promotes
Muslim voices for liberty and freedom through the separation of
mosque and state. They believe the root cause of Islamist terrorism
is the ideology of political Islam (Islamism) and a belief in the
supremacy of the Islamic state. AIFD's primary projects include the
Muslim Liberty Project and the https://muslimreformmovement.org/
(Muslim Reform Movement), which was launched in December 2015 and
is comprised of a coalition of over 15 Western Muslim Leaders from
the US, Canada, and Europe. Conversation with the Rabbi is a
project of the East Valley Jewish Community Center, a 501(c)(3)
nonprofit, neighborhood organization that has served individuals
and families inclusive of all races, religions, and cultures since
1972. Visit us online at https://www.evjcc.org/
