Inside Islam: Faith vs. Fanatics: Denmark

This is the first post I'm making, while watching "Inside Islam: Faith vs. Fanatics." My intention is to give a more-or-less real-time description and review of the film, which is interspersed with FOX News interviews.

In Denmark, not so long ago, one young man killed another, they're both Muslims. A local imam wanted to try the case under sharia law. He decided that one family should pay the other a certain amount of money: and that the Danish authorities fussed simply because they didn't understand Islam.

The imam is still working for sharia law in Denmark - and Europe.

Naser Khader, an elected member of the Danish parliament and a Muslim, thinks this is a bad idea. For this, he's been called a "traitor" to Islam.

According to Said Mansour, the minute member of parliament Khader stopped being a Muslim when he entered parliament. On a positive note, Said Mansour says he wants an Islamic society in Europe, a parallel society to the local European society.

PBS didn't like this segment. Since one of the Islamists said that he wanted a Caliphate in Europe, and the film implied this was a good idea, PBS said that the film was biased.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
