From the Moyers Newsletter:
"The Muslim individual right now in the 21st century does not live with the same amount of difference that people in the United States, for example, live with. It's crucial for Muslim societies to cultivate difference in their midst. And that means critical differences - a real difference so that people could engage in solid meaningful debates - philosophical debates - and conversations. - Anouar Majid
