Radio Pick: Homegrown Terrorism

TORONTO, ONTARIO - This week's radio pick comes from the only national call-in show in Canada, the CBC's "Cross Country Checkup". It's been difficult to find insightful programming on the New York Muslim community center story, especially from the Islamic perspective. A stand-out example finally emerged thanks to guest Sayyid Amiruddin on last Sunday's Cross Country Checkup. Amiruddin not only clearly articulated the difference between radicalized groups and the generic religion of Islam, but offered concrete strategies to prevent additional people from becoming radicalized. His call, 71 minutes into the 113-minute program, should be widely distributed as background to any serious discussion of this red-hot topic.
