On my way to Baylor

I've been invited to give a talk on Tuesday at Baylor University as a part of their conference, On The Boundary. I'll be speaking about Jihad in America so I'm sure there should be a turnout of curious Texans and Baylor students to hear me try to string sentences together, God willing. I'll be speaking at 9am at the Center for Jewish Studies for all of my Texas readers. I'm the only non-professor speaking so etemas dua to the fullest :)

I'll probably be posting the audio of my presentation next week so stay tuned.

Walking through a bookstore is a painful experience for most Muslim Americans. This is one reason why.

Post Traumatic Stress and Love

...The Americans gave the slender young woman from Fallujah a job as an interpreter and a room to live in. She earned $1,050 a month, more money than she had ever seen before. But she would never go home to see her family again.

I gave myself bruises listening to this story on my way home from work.
