This week Ben talked to Dr. Amir Arain, the President of the Islamic Center of Nashville, about his Muslim faith, and in particular the experience of Muslims in the American South. We'll talk about the basic tenants of the Islamic faith, the cultural differences between different strains of the religion, and the response of moderate Muslims to the terrorist activities of radical groups. We'll also discuss interfaith cooperation and hopes for increasing acceptance of the Muslim community in the United States.
