Learn About Islam

I've been meaning to post this for a while. If you are interested in learning about Islam there is a great video which you can watch for free on Google Video. It is titled Islam: What the West Needs to Know. You can watch it here. The movie features several top scholars of Islam, including a former PLO terrorist. They carefully explain the role of the Koran and Hadith in Islam and give a critical introduction to the religion. Their basic thesis is that Islam's relationship with violence has its origins in the Koran itself and the actions of the Prophet of Islam, Mohammed.
