State Sen. Richard Stuart is out with a new ad against Qasim Rashid claiming he "doesn't believe Islamic terrorism exists."
A tweet aimed at Qasim Rashid, a Muslim lawyer running for a seat in Virginia's state Senate, amounts to a felony, prosecutors say.
Qasim Rashid showed some of the awesome hats he's worn over the years.
In Talk to Me, Rashid takes his activism to the streets and walks the walk, creating dialogue as well as interfaith and inter-racial understanding through storytelling - both in his own voice and by sharing his pen with a cast of heartfelt contributors.
It's no secret that we don't live in a post racial society, and it's also clear that having these conversations are not easy. To better understand a framework in how to approach them, or to better understand the struggles so many people face today this book is excellent.
'Talk To Me' isn't just about Qasim's life, it is a collection of stories from other individuals who have encountered racism, prejudice, sexism, and domestic violence, and explores how these individuals have conquered these hurdles through meaningful discussion and open dialogue.
How did a rogue band of radicals with such a destructive ideology appear so suddenly and gain such influence in such a rapid timeframe? The answer is an inconvenient truth -- but it is one we must accept. ISIS exists due to both unjust Western imperialism, and unjust Muslim majority governments. To stop ISIS requires reversing this trend.
So yes, let us confront and debate the path to reformation. As the Qur'an teaches, "Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in a way that is best."
