2. “The Innocent Muslims” and the “Courageous Christians”
Last week, the world went a little upside down when a really poorly made “film,” “the Innocence of Muslims,” was unleashed online and met with angry protests around the world. One of the men that took credit for consulting with that film was a man by the name of Steve Klein. Upon hearing of his involvement with the film, Courageous Christians United, an organization that Klein sat on the board for, dismissed him from the organization and repudiated the film. We wanted to get their take on the whole debacle and find a way forward from this mess. With that in mind, we invite Courageous Christians United’s President, Rob Sivulka, onto the show.
3. Did the Arab Spring fail? Does the Middle East deserve democracy? Are those really stupid questions?
After protests and a violent seemingly pre planned attack engulfed the Middle East after the release (and not necessarily because of) the “Innocence of Muslims” film, more than a few commentators suggested that the Arab Spring was a failure and that the Middle East wasn’t ready or capable of democracy. We’ll give those notions a BS test when we speak with writer Sara Yasin and writer/Professor Khalid Bey.
