Panelists discussing mosques
On June 28, 2012, the British Council, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, Interfaith Alliance, and the Religious Freedom Education Project at the Newseum hosted a day of panel discussions, “Reason vs. Rhetoric: Understanding American Muslims.”
In this panel Shireen Zaman, Kathleen Foley, Mohamed Elibiary, and Remziya Suleyman examined the traditional and contemporary role of mosques in America, including the Park 51 controversy in New York and anti‐mosque protests. The growth, history, and public perception of mosques in the United States were also discussed.
