From Hiroshima to London

Imam Zaid Shakir gave this talk at the Zaytuna Institute on the anniversary of the nuclear bombing on Hiroshima.

Zaid Shakir discusses some very important issues including the role of Muslims in the United States, the discourse (or lack of) on "terrorism," and proposes that we begin to consider, and be against *all* forms of political violence against civilians. Such a discourse would allow all people of goodwill to take a stand against this kind of violence.

A very important, and highly recommended talk - well worth listening to - especially in light of the daily pressures on Muslims to just keep on "condemning."
