— A session from MPAC’s 2014 Convention —
With the incessant violence in the Middle East caused by violent extremism, Muslims are asking each other a major question: “What can we do?” It feels overwhelming, but there’s a lot we can do.
This panel looks at the root causes, failed policies and ideological perversions which has lead to the creation and success if ISIS to capture the imagination and shock the conscience of the world.
