What: Lecture. “The Great Theft: Wrestling Islam From the Extremists”

Event: Despite the visibility of fundamentalists, the silent majority of Muslims oppose extremism and seek to reclaim Islam's moral traditions. Lured as a teen by fundamentalism, Dr. Abou El Fadl is now outspoken in support of rescuing the Islamic faith from radicals.
