Muslims and Others Discussing Islam and Related Topics

That's a rather dry title, but I see the subject as quite interesting.

I started a discussion thread a few days ago, and have been very pleased at the often informed and focused discussions in it. The Muslims who contributed to the discussion did a better job of presenting their view of what Islam is than I could. There's a description of "Jihad" given, which I think is quite useful when trying to understand what's been going on over the last few decades.

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.
