The Young Turks, Sam Harris and Jihad


#1

This is a great discussion exploring the nuance of opinion concerning the spectrum of implications pertaining to the supposed inherent militarism of Islam.


It all started with Ben Afleck, Bill Maher and Sam Harris butting heads about the doctrinal role of Jihad in Islamic theology.

This via the initial reaction from The Young Turks, concerning Maher’s show (which I also recommend you find and watch):

Which lead to, among others, Reza Aslam criticising Harris on the show. Sam eventually got on to air his grievances and attempt to ‘clear the air’.


I highly recommend exploration of this cultural thread, IMHO it explores some very important tropes of the present situation.
