For those of you who haven’t heard of her, another interesting journalist to check out is Dr. Ibtihal Al-Khatib. I saw this interview last year. In it, she argues that secularism may be a path to religious freedom for everyone – including, if not especially – Muslims. (The previous link is a transcript. Here is a video of Dr. Al-Khatib’s interview, in Arabic with English subtitles.)
Another blog to share with you: The Sudanese Thinker. Drima, a 21-year old Sudanese Afro-Arab Muslim and self-proclaimed “political junkie” quips about John McCain, comments on current events from every corner of the globe, keeps us up-to-date on what’s happening in Sudan … and does it all with wit, smarts, and a bit of, well, snarkiness. The good, refreshing kind.
Plus, he gave yours truly a holler in a recent blog entry. Thanks, Drima!
