Islam, Paris, and Polarization - with Michael Brooks

Islam, Paris, and Polarization - with Michael Brooks

After the Paris attacks, tensions are running higher than they have in many years over the threat posed by Islamism, how we should talk about it, and how policy should respond to it. One of our most difficult cultural challenges is distinguishing the acts of violent Islamists from public attitudes towards Muslims in general, and specifically how heated and often ugly rhetoric impacts how we confront the massive refugee crisis.

To discuss this thorny and emotionally charged issue, Josh Zepps talks with Michael Brooks, a contributor and producer for the award-winning daily political talk show, The Majority Report. It is a lively discussion of a highly polarized issue, revealing just how complicated and nuanced Islam’s role in these crises truly is.
