Linksies: Muslim Leadership Initiative Part Two

Linksies: Muslim Leadership Initiative Part Two February 3, 2015

qudsThe discussion over the controversy surrounding the Muslim Leadership Initiative continues. Last month, I compiled a series of articles, videos and links of the debate, which can be found here. There has been more discussion  in the last few weeks to warrant a second round of Linksies, which I’ve compiled below. These links include discussions about ways to handle in-group disagreements, the nature of solidarity, the interfaith dimension, the political nature of Palestinian statehood, and a deeper dive into political strategy that moves beyond boycotts.
