Muslim Community Leaders On Recent Events, Middle East

Charlotte Talks on WFAE – Friday, May 1

“Middle East conflicts, the rise of ISIS and the wooing by the Islamic State of young people in the U.S. and around the world is certainly cause for concern – not for violence here at home. Yet in Charlotte, Chapel Hill and elsewhere around the country there have been violent incidents some view as hate crimes – specifically aimed at Muslims. We sit down with a local Muslim leader, an author and a visiting scholar to get their perspective on recent events.” Mike Collins, Charlotte Talks Host

Dr. Abdelmahdi Al-soudi – Visiting Scholar, UNC Charlotte Department of Religious Studies; Professor of Political Sociology and Middle East Studies, Jordan University

Sam Wazan – Author of Trapped in Four Square Miles; Board Member, International House; Global Trustee, United Religions Initiative; Chair, Charlotte Cooperation

Nael Abodabba – Chairman, Islamic Center of Charlotte; President, A2Z Cash & Carry


Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins is a regional forum for the discussion of politics, growth, the arts, culture, social issues, literature, human interest and the environment.
