I'm working on papers concerning: transformation behavior, the shaping of
our world, bereavement, Islam in contemporary politics, closed Muslim communities, and separating terrorism from the practice
of Islam in the mind of western news consumer.
The terminology used in this site is not intended to
be offensive to any practiced religion. It is recognized that the majority of
Muslims are moderate and do not support the violent overthrow of any government. Additionally,
the use of the term Islamist is not to associate Islam with violence but to differentiate between the peace practicing majority
of Muslims and the criminal extremist attempting to hijack the religion.
